  • Spring game close as Maroon...

    The maroon players defeated the white squad in an evenly matched scrimmage, 21-14, in the Harrison County High School spring game Thursday evening.  
    The game, played on Lawson Field in Ingles Stadium, was the first for the Neil Furnish Thorobreds on the Hilltop.  The game featured two 20-minute halves played with a running clock with 40 players dressed for the occasion.  
    The baseball players who also play football along with a couple of track athletes and a few injured players did not participate in the scrimmage.

  • Football back behind the scene...

    The Spring Football Game and the NFL draft brought football off of the back page and back to the front for a couple of weeks.  
    The draft takes four days and is more highly watched and discussed than the NBA playoffs and regular season baseball though the “real” games aren’t for another few months.  
    Having UK’s Bud Dupree go to the Steelers was very pleasing to me as a Steelers fan.  Dupree has what it takes to be a really good defensive player in Pittsburgh and the Steelers style of play fits him very well.

  • Tennis region wraps up season...

    The Harrison County High School tennis team played host to the 10th Region Tournament this week at the tennis courts on the Hilltop.  
    The tournament began May 1 and the finals will be on Friday, May 8. This tournament follows the end of the regular season for the Harrison County team, which was last Wednesday at Pendleton County.  
    The Fillies finished a very successful regular season with a four-match sweep of the Lady Cats tennis squad.  

  • Harrison County wins two of...

    South Spencer Lady Rebels of Rockport, Indiana, beat the Fillies 10-0 in five innings Friday night, but the Fillies rebounded to beat two Kentucky teams for a successful trip to the Owensboro Catholic Tournament.
    The Fillies had just arrived on site and were forced to play without a chance to warm up, which contributed to South Spencer scoring four runs in the first and two in the second.  
    Harrison County was only able to muster two hits while the Lady Rebels, who were playing their second game of the day, smashed out 13 hits to score their 10 runs.
