  • Fillies tennis has high hopes,...

    The Harrison County High School tennis team has a plethora of upperclassmen with the Fillies and a squad of only four boys to tackle the season.  
    The first match is scheduled for Monday, March 16, on the Hilltop with Bourbon County and the teams are working hard in preparation.
    The Thorobreds return three players as freshman Luke Bradford along with eighth graders Isiah Stiltner and Boston Pergram bring the experience of 2014 to the courts this season.

  • Who should be in the Field of 68?

    I will have to give Mark Story of the Herald Leader credit for spurring me to write this article.  
    It was after I read his article that I thought, ‘How wrong can one guy be?’ and decided to write this.  
    His article stated that Murray State should not be left out of the NCAA tournament and Indiana and Texas put into the fray.  
    Heck no Murray State should not be in the tournament. But neither should Indiana or Texas. That would be unless they win their conference tournament, which they will not.

  • Fillies season ends with 60-42...

    The 38th District Champion Harrison County Fillies could not match up with the Lady Eagles of Scott High Tuesday night losing 60-42 in the 10th Region quarterfinals.  
    The Fillies’ season ends with a deceiving 10-21 record while Scott advances at 20-9.
    The Fillies jumped out to a 6-1 lead to start the game but the speed and physical play of Scott soon wore Harrison County down.  
    By halftime, Scott led 27-15 and the Fillies were in an uphill battle.

  • Fillies District champs with 52-...

    “Our defense was the key,” said Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ thrilling win over Robertson County. “We knew Saner would hit shots; our goal was to take Mitchell out of the game by denying her drive. Maddie K and Whitney took two huge charges to set the tone and deny her the paint.”
    The defensive affect on the game was apparent from the outset as the Fillies slowed the Lady Devils offense to a crawl holding them to only two points in the first period.  

  • Breds lose lead and district...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds jumped out to a 15-4 lead to start the game Friday night but failed to hold the lead as they lost the 38th District Championship to Pendleton County 73-71.
    Pendleton County used a three-point-shooting barrage to overcome the Thorobreds in the hotly contested district final.  
    The Wildcats made good on 16 of 25 three-point attempts for the evening to keep pressure on the Thorobreds all night.
    After the early lead for Harrison County, the Wildcats out scored the Breds five to two to close out the period trailing 17-9.  

  • Track team again competes in...

    On Saturday, the Harrison County track squad traveled back to Maysville for the final regular season indoor track meet.  
    The field was large due to teams wanting to prepare for the indoor state meet which will also be held at Mason County. This meet will be on Saturday, March 14.  
    “It was important to have this meet today,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “It sharpens our veterans and gives invaluable experience to our freshmen. We didn’t have our best performances but we did pretty well.”
