  • Track squads compete well Friday...

    The Harrison County girls’ and boys’ track teams competed at Western Hills High School’s open track meet Friday afternoon. The meet, which had 19 teams competing, was held in less than ideal conditions as the temperatures started in the low 40s and dropped throughout the event. 

    Natosha Ingram led the Fillies by winning the shot put and finishing second in the discus.  The Fillies were also able to gather points in the hurdles and the 3200M relay.     

    The Fillies placed eighth in the 19 team field scoring 31 points.

  • Dance team wins national...

    The Harrison County High School Dance team traveled to Evansville Indiana Saturday and brought back the first place trophy from a national competition. The Heartland National Dance Competition at The Centre in downtown Evansville hosted squads 23 squads from the central part of the United States. 

    The competition started at 9 a.m. with the individual competition, solos, and ensembles and other non-team events. The team competition was in the afternoon and consisted of each squad doing routines which have a maximum time of two and one half minutes. 

  • Northcutt is making Harrison...

    A few weeks ago, Brandon Barnett pinned his way to the 189 pound division high school wrestling state championship. 

    We have already established that high school baseball almost always has to consider the Thorobreds in the picture.

    There are many years when the cheerleaders are in the hunt for state awards.

  • Tennis team wins at home

    The Harrison County Tennis Team rolled past Bracken County Tuesday afternoon on their home court on the Hilltop. 

    The netters took 12 of the 15 matches as they took their first win of the year in grand fashion.

    No. 1 singles girl, Julie Henson, battled to an 8-8 tie and then lost the tiebreaker, and Katie O’Neal dropped her match to Shelby Hamilton 4-8, but after the two set backs, the Harrison County girls’ squad was only tested in one of the remaining matches.

  • Being a winner means never...

    I’ll have to admit that as an official sometimes I take up for them just because but most of the time I don’t. Especially basketball officials because, due to the nature of the game, I believe they sometimes call inconsistently. I don’t mean one official is inconsistent but that from one to the other they call and/or look for different things. But whatever you may believe about officiating some of the remarks that I heard and read after the games Saturday were kind of sad.

  • Tuesday’s rout...

    Mason County’s Royals ran into the proverbial buzz saw Tuesday afternoon as the Harrison County Fillies blitzed them 16-0 in three innings. 

    Tracey Hicks picked up the victory on the mound as she pitched two innings striking out four and giving up one single.  Rachel Hatfield pitched the third inning as Coach Christine Garnett is working on depth in her pitching staff. 

    The Fillies scored three times in the bottom of the first using walks and inept fielding by Mason County to score the runs.

  • Track and field season brings...

    Thanks to the new state of the art track facility there is great anticipation for the approaching track season. 

    Harrison County is hosting three big “all-comers” meets as well as hosting the most talented AA Region in the state for the regional meet. 

    In the second year for the Fillies and Thorobreds runners to be in this powerful region, Harrison County figures to compete for the championships.

  • Appropriate old sayings for...

    I admired my dad for many reasons. Some I inherited and passed along to the daughters and grand kids and some I did not inherit. Some I inherited and didn’t pass along, mainly because they didn’t need or want them. 

    My dad was a very patient person for the most part and one who would never intentionally say or do anything to offend anyone else. I inherited some of that quality, but not all and hope I passed it along. 

    There are some traits such as an old saying that fit every occasion, which I will go into in this column.

  • Softball Fillies rout Lexington...

    In what may be a preview of an outstanding season to come, the Harrison County Fillies beat Lexington Christian 23-0 Saturday afternoon in a pre-season scrimmage. In the game, played on Shirley Field, the Lexington squad managed one walk for their total offensive output. The Fillies used four total pitchers, Tracey Hicks, Ashley Coppage, and sixth graders Jamie Davis and Kecia Stephens to completely shut down the opposition. 

  • State Champ Barnett wins Most...

    Harrison County’s Wrestling Booster Club held the 16th annual Awards Bash at the Extension Office Sunday afternoon. 

    Coach Russ Riegel was the emcee and master of ceremony for the event which featured a lasagna dinner with salads, pizza and desert.
