  • Harrison County wins girls, boys...

    The track teams seemed to be coming together at the right time.  
    At least, that seemed to be the case on Thursday as the Fillies and Thorobreds were winners in the nine-team All Comers Meet at the athletic complex.  
    The Fillies scored 126 points to runner up Nicholas County’s 89 as they won the meet.
    After the Fillies, the meet was close as Paris followed Nicholas County with 80 points and George Rogers Clark came next with 79.  
    Pendleton County, Bourbon County, Sayre, Scott County and Bracken County trailed the field.

  • Title IX 42 years later

    When Title IX was first introduced as a part of the Education Amendment of 1972, the NCAA and many other institutions of education began gnashing of teeth and protesting as to how it would be the ruin of sports as we knew them at the time.  
    You see, there would be no way that the schools could afford to have the same schedules, pay for coaches, number of scholarships, same types of facilities and more for the female and male athlete.   

  • Breds find tough sledding in...

    On Thursday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds saw their five-game winning streak go by the wayside in the first inning. The Franklin County Flyers scored six times en route to a 6-2 victory.  
    Freshman hurler Nathan Fryman could not master his pitching locations and his teammates made three misplays in the first inning as the Flyers surprised the Breds with the scoring barrage.  
    At the same time, Flyer starter Quinton Brownlee retired the first 11 Thorobreds he faced as he hurled a complete game two hitter.

  • Fillies beat Paris 6-0 Thursday...

    The Harrison County Fillies defeated the Paris Lady Hounds Thursday night before embarking on a two-day trip to Owensboro to play in the Sports Warehouse Classic.  
    The Fillies won one of four games there playing top statewide competition.
    On Thursday, the much-improved Lady Hounds gave the Fillies a battle before falling by the 6-0 score.  
    Harrison County pitcher Jami Davis held the Paris squad to two hits, a walk and only four base runners while striking out 10.

  • Breds roll to 3-2 win over...

    The Bourbon County Colonels arrived on the Hilltop with a cocky team and an 18-1 record as they faced the 14-7 Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    They left the Hilltop seven innings later talking trash with an 18-2 mark following the Thorobreds 3-2 win.
    The game was dominated by sophomore Gus Garrison’s pitching and six innings of stellar fielding by his Harrison County teammates.  
    One play that stands out on the positive side for the Breds was a third inning catch on a bloop fly ball made by second baseman Brandon Case.  

  • Fillies finish second in...

    The Warren East Lady Raiders made the long trip from Bowling Green to Cynthiana last weekend to win the McDonald’s Classic Softball Tournament without giving up a run.  
    Harrison County’s Fillies finished second as they shutout Whitley County twice and John Hardin once. However, they could not catch up to the Warren East pitching in the two losses to the 4th Region power.  
    The Fillies opened play Friday by winning two games to put themselves in good position for Saturday’s tournament play.
