  • Has baseball’s interleague play...

    This week was the first round of play when the American League and National League teams play against each other.
    It seems like that there has been more chatter from managers and sportscasters in this year than before about the unfair aspects of the policy.
    Jim Leyland of the Tigers and Dusty Baker noted that they would prefer that the play between the leagues not be continued due to the difference in the leagues and the relative strength of the opposition each team is scheduled to play.

  • Fillies close out season with...

    The Harrison County Fillies finished the season Saturday working to get ready for the district tournament by hosting a round robin tournament Saturday at Shirley Field.
    During the week before that, the Fillies hosted region rival Bourbon County and went on the road to Lexington to face the Lady Knights of Lexington Catholic.  

  • Shirley stepping down as...

    When Diana “DeDe” Shirley took over the reins of the Harrison County High School varsity cheerleaders in 2008, she knew she would love the job.  
    Four years later, she still loves the job, but another priority has caused her to resign effective at the end of the school year.  
    The other priority is her second child and oldest son, Anthony.  

  • Tennis season ends at regional

    The Harrison County High School tennis team’s season ended in Richmond last week as each single and doubles player was eliminated.
    The Harrison County athletes accounted for themselves well in the matches played at Eastern Kentucky University as for the most part, each won a match before being eliminated.  
    The doubles team of Julie Henson and Ashlyn Techau defeated a Bracken County duo before falling to Graham and Kindred of Clark County by a 4-6, 1-6 score.

  • Fillies win streak at seven...

    It appears that the Harrison County Fillies have put it together at the right time as they won five times last week to take their current win streak to seven straight.
    By winning 10 of their last 12 games, the Fillies have evened their record at 14-14 with one week left before district play begins.  
    The week began with a doubleheader at Shirley Field with Mason County on Senior Night.
    Mason County came into the game with a deceptive 3-20 record. Deceptive because the Lady Royals have played most teams close and have lost some very tight games.

  • Thorobreds sweep Paris, lose to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds started the week last Wednesday with a doubleheader sweep of Paris, but found the going tough for the remainder of the week.
    The Breds dropped their first region game of the year by a 15-5 count to Bishop Brossart in the first game of a doubleheader Thursday on the Hilltop and then dropped the nightcap to Boyd County, 9-4.

  • Harrison County track teams run...

    The Harrison County High School track teams continued this unusual season last week participating in the Scott County All Comers on Tuesday afternoon.
    The Tuesday meet was followed by the weather-delayed Harrison County Invitational on Thursday.  
    At Scott County, the Thorobreds had one of their finest performances of the year as they won the meet beating several teams who they had trailed on other occasions.
    Four first place finishes led the way for the Thorobreds as Coach Robert Walker tried some new combinations that worked out well.
