  • Fillies win Thursday/Friday game...

    It took 23 hours to play the fourth inning in the championship game of the 38th District Softball Championship between Nicholas County and Harrison County. 

    The reason it happened is still not exactly clear but it happened never the less. 

  • Track team ends regular season,...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track squads ended the regular season Thursday on the Hilltop with very good performances and look now to improve on this effort Saturday in the Region 4 meet. 

    The Thorobreds finished second of eight teams Thursday trailing only powerful Scott County. En route to this impressive performance, the Breds had five first place performances and five seconds. 

    Harrison County dominated the relays winning the 800m relay and finishing second in the 3200m relay and the 400m relay.

  • Lady Colonels upset Fillies 4-3...

    Bourbon County’s Lady Colonels scored four unearned runs in the third inning and made them stand up to take a 4-3 win over the Harrison County Fillies Thursday night.  It was the last regular season home game for the Fillies, who fell to 28-7 with the loss. 

    Bourbon County improved to 15-13 with the win and a date at against the Montgomery County Lady Indians Monday night in the district.

  • What the kids don’t...

    I made my first trip to the Coach Pitch portion of River Road Park last night, which brought back memories of only a few short years ago when Steve Slucher and I coached the Cardinals. 

    In fact, last night the Cardinals were in one of the games I watched and they were still wearing the helmets that my daughter, Amanda, cleaned up and painted for us to use. 

    The Mudcats, Riley’s team, lost to the Cardinals in a good game where fun was had by almost all.

  • Breds enter district with 16-...

    The last time Harrison County lost a baseball game was April 19 at home against Scott High. 

    Since that time, the 28-4 Breds have won 16 in a row and look to add another district championship this week to the many they have already won. 

    An away game on Wednesday at Clark County and senior night on the Hilltop Thursday night closed out the regular season. 

    The Cardinals, who feature the second best record in the 10th Region, were on a two-game losing record coming into the game at 26-7 for the year.

  • Tennis wraps up season with...

    The Harrison County tennis teams finished up the season with first round wins and second round losses in the regional last week. 

    The boys’ singles had the Smith brothers, Charlie and Ross, each win a match and lose one. 

    Ross, by virtue of the draw, had a first round bye, won the second round 6-0, 6-0, but lost in the third round to the No. 2 overall seed Freyberger of Highlands.
