  • Championship reunion Friday on...

    The State Champions from 1997 and 1998 will be honored Friday night before and during the Thorobreds game with Fleming County on the Hilltop.
    The festivities begin around 5 p.m. when the former players take batting practice and will continue through the game.  
    There is a junior varsity game scheduled before the introduction of the players, statisticians and coaches from the two teams. Event organizer Buddy Renaker has been working to contact the participants and said he has a positive response from 75 percent or more that expect to be in attendance.  

  • Fillies’ struggles continue,...

    The Harrison County Fillies played some of the better competition they have seen this year in the past week and came away with one win in three tries.  
    Fleming County, with a 9-4 record and Rowan County, who is currently 15-5, provided some stiff competition giving Coach Christine Garnett a better idea as to what her team needs to do before the district begins.
    The Fillies played host to the Lady Panthers of Fleming County on Thursday, April 28.  The visitors jumped out for nine runs in the top of the first and the Fillies could never recover.  

  • Harrison track team in Dunbar...

    Weather continues to be a factor for the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track teams as they prepare for the upcoming region meets.  
    The number of meets and practices that the athletes have been able to compete in have seriously hampered the ability to prepare for the type of competition in this region.  Added to this, on Saturday there were illness, injury and academic obligations which had a skeleton crew going to Dunbar.
    The Fillies did quite well despite the lack of depth they usually have and finished fifth.

  • Friday is a Big Day on the...

    Friday will be an evening of excitement on the Hilltop as the 1997 and 1998 champions return for a special night.  Wouldn’t it be nice if the school would name the Whitaker Park, Herrington Field and Snopek Press Box that night?   
    Buddy Renaker has been working on the special night and believes 75 percent of the players, stat people and coaches will be there along with their families and others.  

  • Tennis squads split with St....

    The Harrison County tennis teams faced off with the Saints of Maysville St. Patrick last Thursday on the Hilltop with the girls winning easily but the boys losing in a close contest.
    The Fillies squad took two of three in the singles and swept the two doubles matches for a 4-1 win.  Xinkun Nie dropped her match to Shelbie Wulfekamp, 1-4, while Harley Sallee defeated Caitlyn Quinn, 5-0, and Hayley Mansur defeated Tucker, 5-1.

    The Harrison County High School Baseball Fence of Fame is getting four new members Friday when the Thorobreds face the Conner Cougars on the Hilltop at 6 p.m.  
    James R. (Jimmy) Whitaker, John Hampton, J.B. Schmidt, and Will Renaker will all have a sign with their name go up on the fence that evening.
    Jimmy Whitaker has been involved in coaching the Thorobreds as long as brother Mac has been the head coach at the school.

  • Harrison County loses three of...

    The Harrison County girls and boys tennis teams continue to compete for wins in matches, but continue to fall a little short.

    The Colonels won 3-4 in the boys’ and 4-6 in the girls’ competition.  
    Cory McCauley, Charlie Smith and Johnny Mitchell won in the single competition but none of the doubles pairs were able to win leaving the 3-4 verdict.
