  • It’s a free country

    After a week off from Mike’s Minute I want to cover a couple of things in this one article.
    First, Harrison County lost one of its really good people last week when Gerald Reffett passed away at the young age of 61. I knew Gerald through his good wife Connie who played a role in the upbringing of our two daughters during their time in high school.  
    Connie was an assistant coach when Larry Allison was the Fillies’ basketball coach and both of the girls were involved either as a player (Amanda) or manager (Meghan).

  • Fillies rout Pendleton County 20...

    Thursday in the last district game before the tournament, the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Pendleton County Lady Cats 20-0 in three innings at Shirley Field.  
    Kecia Stephens pitched the three-inning affair for Harrison County allowing only two hits, hitting one batter and striking out three.  
    The Fillies gathered 14 hits in three innings with Coach Christine Garnett resting almost every starter after the first inning.

  • Kendall named new basketball...

    After 39 years of coaching, Harrison County basketball Coach Mike Reitz has retired.  Reitz’ retirement announcement came last Wednesday and by Friday Larry Kendall was named head coach.
    Kendall has served as an assistant coach for 17 years in the Harrison County system beginning with Mike Reitz in 1995-96 until 2001-2 when brother Lee Kendall took over as head coach.  
    Lee Kendall resigned in 2006-07 and Reitz came back through the past year with Larry Kendall as assistant for each of these seasons.

  • Breds losing streak at three

    Assistant coach Eddie Feeback said it quite well in a post game interview after the 13-3 loss to Madison Central Saturday night: “We don’t know what to do just yet to fix our hitting problems,” lamented Feeback. “We work on different issues in practice, but somehow the players revert back to the old way in the games. We will keep working until we get it right.”
    Friday night the Cooper Jaguars came to the Hilltop to begin the Hometown Pharmacy/Frank Shoop Classic with a 6-18-1 record and a five-game losing streak.  

  • Breds win 11th straight with a...

    Starting pitcher Xavier Carter weathered a four run top of the first and went on to secure the victory in Harrison County’s 21-8 win over Fleming County Monday night. Only one of the five runs Carter gave up was earned as the senior dynamo stepped out of his usual relief role to win the game as the starter.  

  • Power hitting leads Fillies over...

    Both pitchers gave up eight hits, Harrison County’s Tracey Hicks even walked two more batters than did Haley Wagner for Bourbon County but in the end timely and powerful hitting led the Fillies to victory 6-2.

    Harrison County’s boys won 11 events and finished second in four others as they won the Harrison County All Comers Meet Thursday defeating eight teams.
    The Fillies finished second of nine teams winning three events and taking three seconds. Scott County won the girls’ event gathering 151 points to 114 for the Fillies
    Hannah Thomas won the 400M dash and also ran a leg on the victorious 1600M relay quintet. She was joined in that race by Haley Carr, Sabreena Strickland, and Jessica Alas.

    1966 Harrison County High School graduate Jimmy Kearns was named to the 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame in ceremonies in Mason County in April. Kearns was unable to attend the festivities so he was presented his plaque by Coach Mike Reitz who nominated him for the honor.
