  • Colts lose opening conference...

    Georgetown Middle School used a 10-point fourth-quarter advantage to break a tie and win the opening game of the Bluegrass Conference tournament 56-46 over the Harrison County Colts.  
    The game was tight through out as Georgetown held only a three-point lead with about three minutes to play.

  • Philpott leads Fillies to...

    Harrison County junior Madison Philpott changed her jersey number from 20 to 23 and the Fillies won two straight games for the second time this season.

    Philpott scored eight of Harrison County’s first 12 points as she played with confidence that she hadn’t shown this season.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Last second basket gives Henry...

    The large Harrison County crowd that attended the game Tuesday night at Henry Clay came away with the same thought.  
    The Thorobreds snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  
    Harrison County, after trailing very early, led from the latter part of the first quarter until 2:55 was left in the game.  
    At that point, the Blue Devils took the lead 53-52.  Brock Jenkins then hit a three pointer to make the score 55-53 with just over two minutes to play.  

  • Fillies push Lady Camels, fall...

    The Harrison County Fillies trailed by as many as 10 points in the second half Monday night.  
    They rallied to cut the lead to one on two occasions but could not gain the lead in a 42-38 loss to Campbell County.  
    Free throws again played a large part in the Fillies loss as they made only four of 11 tries for the game.  
    Senior Whitney Gray, who led all scorers with 12 points, made all four of her free tosses and the rest of the Fillies were zero for seven.
