    After finishing last year as 10th Region runners-up, and returning two quality veteran pitchers this season, Harrison County’s Fillies are highly regarded.  
    So highly regarded that the 10th Region coaches pre-season poll has the Fillies as favorites just ahead of Bourbon County.  
    Coach Christine Garnett, in her tenth year as head coach of the Fillies, is also optimistic, but cautiously so.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds turned the ball over only five times, had more steals, more assists and only lost the rebound battle by three rebounds last Wednesday night in the second game of the 10th Region Tournament against Bracken County. Yet, the Breds came up on the short end of the 52-40 score to finish the season at 6-26 while Bracken County improved to 17-14.  
    The reason is simple when one looks at the field-goal and the free-throw shooting results.

    In the match-up of two teams that were not supposed to be playing in the title game. Harrison Co. and Robertson Co. faced each other in the 38th District championship game Friday on the Hilltop.  
    The Thorobreds upset Pendleton Co. in the first round Monday and the Black Devils did the same to Nicholas Co. on Tuesday night.

    The Harrison County Fillies jumped out to a 6-2 lead early in the ball game Tuesday night but that joy was short lived in the 72-26 win by Mason County, in the first round of the 10th Region Tournament, held on the Hilltop.  
    Freshman Katelin Ecklar and eighth-grader Elizabeth Allison hit the threes but Mason County outscored the Fillies 13-2 the rest of the first period for a 15-8 lead at the first stop.

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track team took seven competitors to Mason County Saturday for a 39 team competition. Nineteen girls teams and 20 male teams participated.  
    Louisville Male won the female portion of the meet and Covington Catholic won the boys with Male second.  Rockcastle County was a close second to Male in the girls’ competition.  

  • Well done by all schools

    In this day of protests where no one seems to be able to get along, we had a very successful 38th District tournament.  
    The crowds were large and, for the most part, polite and respectful.  
    I do not understand why fans from a school want to sit in the other school’s section but that is a minor issue and only a few do it. The student sections, while near the floor and boisterous, were in control except for a few bull---- yells.

    The Harrison County Fillies put forth a gallant defensive effort Thursday but experience over-came as Nicholas County edged the Fillies 34-25 to win the 38th District Championship.  
    While Harrison County played good defense the senior laden Lady Jackets under Coach Greg Letcher showed poise beyond their years.  Nicholas County, while not shooting well from the field, worked the ball for good shots often passing up a medium range attempts for something better.
