  • Fillies roll past Williamstown,...

    Harrison County’ Fillies took what was a 10-point halftime lead to an easy 25-point (60-35) win Wednesday night over the Williamstown Lady Demons in their only home game of the season to date.
    The Fillies rolled out to a 13-4 advantage early before Williamstown changed to a 1-2-2 zone, which caused the Harrison County girls to become tentative.  

  • Thorobreds split weekend games...

    Only a last-second shot by St. Henry’s senior guard Nick Rechtin prevented the Harrison County Thorobreds from sweeping a weekend of basketball games in northern Kentucky Saturday night.  
    The Thorobreds dropped a 62-61 verdict on Rechtin’s last-second shot on Saturday after defeating Covington Holy Cross 73-58 the night before in Covington.
    On Friday night, the Breds jumped out to an early 15-3 lead and it looked as though they would blow the Indians out of their own gym.

  • Fillies gut out road win at...

    “It was a gut check for the other girls with Jordan (Doram) hobbled and they came through with a good effort,” surmised Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ 60-52 win at Nicholas County Monday night. “We showed more poise and confidence in the second half when we really needed it.”
    Senior center Jordan Doram led the Fillies to a 30-24 halftime lead with a splendid 21-point, 10-rebound first half performance.  

  • Jenkins resigns as Fillies...

    Harrison County is looking for a girl’s soccer coach following the resignation of head Coach Kim Jenkins after nine seasons at the helm of the Fillies.  
    Jenkins’ varsity tenure came after 16 years at the Harrison County Middle School.  
    Her overall record with the Fillies is 75-77-20 having won the last two district championships and finishing runners up in other seasons.  
    Jenkins notified her team of the decision late last week after careful consideration.  

  • College and NFL officials worry...

    Before I get into my thought for the week I want to congratulate the Scott County Cardinals, Head Coach Jim McKee and assistant coach Doug Hampton.  
    What a thrill it has to be for Jim to coach his oldest son and Doug his grandson to a state football championship.  The entire Hampton, Palmer and McKee families must be as proud as they can be.
    I have watched more college and professional football in the past few days than usual due to Patti being out of town (no supervision) and the lousy weather keeping me inside.
