    “We had a big day Saturday with two teams entered,” said Harrison County wrestling coach Luke Tucker.  “We did a split squad with the team in order to get the most matches for each wrestler.  With a young team, I’m more concerned about getting time on the mat than winning duals.”

    HCMS Eighth Grade Volleyball Still
    Undefeated at 7-0

    After the Dec. 5 match with Scott County, the Harrison County Middle School eighth grade volleyball girls remained undefeated with a 7-0 record.  
    The eighth grade Fillies won in three sets over Scott County 21-19, 17-21, and 15-7
    The seventh grade Fillies also defeated Scott County but they did so in straight sets 21-14 and 21-5.  The win improved the seventh grade record to 5-2 for the season.  

  • It is harder than you think

    Seeing this title one might think that I am going to write about how difficult it is to write a weekly article while being careful not to repeat topics too many times.  No, that is not what I am writing about this week.  
    What is harder than you think is keeping score for a high school basketball game.  This year I am the Fillies road game score keeper.  Laura (Kendall) Ashbrook does the job for home games which, while being the same work, is more difficult because on the Hilltop she is the official scorer.

    The Harrison County Archery team improved over their opening tournament performance a week ago, especially in the elementary and middle school divisions as they competed Friday night at Williamstown High School.  
    The Westside Elementary team was second of seven teams and the Northside team was fourth of seven teams.  The Harrison County Middle School team was fourth of 19 teams while the Harrison County High School team was 12th of 18 squads.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost in the last seconds to Nicholas County 61-60 as senior guard Trent Letcher made two free throws to notch the victory for the 3-2 Bluejackets.  
    Sophomore Blake Price had put the Breds on top in the seesaw affair but Letcher was fouled to put him on the line.  Quenton Turley’s foul also disqualified him with five fouls so after Letcher’s made free throws the Breds were seemingly rudderless on their last possession.  

  • Fillies drop 4 straight after...

    After beginning the season 2-1 the Harrison County Fillies have found tough going.  The Fillies lost games at Grant County and Beechwood along with home losses to Nicholas County and Dixie Heights.
    The Wednesday trip to Grant County saw the Fillies hold their own through the first half trailing by only seven at 22-15.  This was after Harrison County held an 8-7 lead at the first quarter stop.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds fell to 0-3 Tuesday night but it wasn’t without a hard fought battle with the visiting Scott High Eagles.  
    Down by 11 points midway through the second quarter the Breds came all the way back to tie the game, late in the third period.
