    The Harrison County track teams ran in a tough 11-team meet last Tuesday at Dunbar and then played host to eight other schools in the 47th annual Harrison County Invitational on Saturday.
    Tuesday’s competition was extremely tough as the teams participating were, for the most part, the larger in the area.
    Bryan Station won the girls’ portion of the meet and Scott County took the boys’ part.

    Spring football game set for tonight

    Coach Neil Furnish and the Harrison County High School football program is announcing the time for the annual spring game.  
    The HCHS football team will have an open practice/intrasquad game Thursday, April 28, at 6 p.m.  This will be an opportunity for the public to see the progress made over the spring practice and the prospects for the 2016 season.  

  • Spring football

    The annual spring football scrimmage is upon us and will be this Thursday at Ingles Stadium beginning at 6 p.m.  This is actually more of an open practice. It’s designed to wrap up spring practice with a game to let the young people display their talents as a reward for the hard work that they have put in during the spring.  
    There are a good number of young men, including several eighth graders, who will be freshmen next school year attending practice and working hard to meet some goals established by the coaching staff.

    The Harrison County Middle School Fillies soccer team faced two of the top five teams in the conference in the final week of the regular season.  
    Last Tuesday, April 19, the Royal Springs Lady Titans came to the Hilltop with eight veteran eighth graders to do battle with the Fillies.  However, like many of the matches for the Fillies this season, Harrison County’s young players jumped out to an early lead.

    The Harrison County Fillies beat Nicholas County, Jeffersontown, Bryan Station and Robertson County twice to raise their season record to 12-3 after Tuesday’s games.  
    Last Wednesday the Nicholas County Lady Jackets fell to 8-7 on the year as Harrison County handed them an 11-0 loss in five innings.  
    The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third when Madison Polley singled and Nicholas County hurler Jonna Watkins could not find the plate, walking two.  

  • A ritual of spring

    A Ritual of Spring
    It is that time of year again when the top college players decide whether to stay in school or go on to the professional level.  
    Since John Calipari has been at The University of Kentucky, there have always been some players destined to leave.  
    This year was no exception. In fact, it was made ridiculous when the entire squad opted to put their name into consideration by the pros.  
    Of course, under the new rule, as long as they do not hire an agent they can still come back to school for the following year.
