  • Baseball Breds begin season with...

    Harrison County began defense of the 38th District baseball title Thursday afternoon with a 10-0 win over district rival Pendleton County.  
    The Breds were never threatened in this five-inning affair as pitchers Jordan Riley, the starter, Nolan Brossart and John King allowed only two hits to the Wildcats.  
    Pendleton County only got two runners past first base in the game and none farther than second.  
    Harrison County struck with two runs in the second on the first of King’s three hits, this one a two-run homer.  

  • Tennis team sees good year ahead...

    Ron Markley and Austin Dacci are in their first year as head coaches of the Harrison County High School tennis teams.  
    Dacci is coaching the Fillies and Markley the Thorobreds as they enter into the tennis season.  
    Last week was the first week of competition and already the coaches like what they see in the young but somewhat experienced squad.  
    The Thorobreds have the bare minimum number of players, but Markley doesn’t see that as a real problem.  

  • Track season begins with...

    The Harrison County Track team began the quest to return in large numbers to the state meet in Louisville on Saturday as they competed in the Woodford County All Comers in Versailles.
    The Fillies had some excellent performances, especially in the hurdles and relays along with good performances in some of the field events.
    Coach Danny Simpson noted, “We were blessed by warm weather in the ‘Luck of the Irish Meet’ especially considering the preparation that we have been able to work in.  The cold has hamstrung our preparation time.”

  • Baseball region seen as wide...

    When a team has a 30-10 record and is region runners up, most programs would say “great job.”  
    Harrison County’s Head Coach Mac Whitaker, while proud of the effort, was quick to point out what could have been done better.  
    “Last year we could not score with people on base,” lamented the veteran coach.  “This year we have to improve on that and play without errors.”
    The Thorobreds lost four starters and a key reserve from last year’s team plus a left-handed reliever.
