    Bowlers complete season in region
    competition in Lexington
    The Harrison County High School bowling team completed its season Saturday bowling in the region tournament at Eastland Lanes in Lexington.  

  • Baseball Breds set sights on...

    Most teams that graduate nine seniors from their baseball squad are deep into a rebuilding season and just hope to compete while the young players gain experience.  
    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost nine seniors, seven of who were pitchers at one time or another from 2011, and are reloading for another season that they hope ends at Whitaker Bank Park.  

  • Who decides where the teams play?

    There is always a lot of talk and questions asked about who makes the field of 68 for the NCAA tournament and what seeds they are, but seldom does anyone address the favoritism shown in where some of the teams play.  
    Fans of No. 1 seeds seem to think that they should have a home court or at least an area court advantage due to the fact that they are, in fact, the No. 1 seed.  
    I can buy that some though I would argue if you are in fact the No. 1 seed the site of the game shouldn’t matter.  

  • HCHS Fillies Softball
  • Fillies track, a mixture of...

    Veteran Fillies Track Coach Danny Simpson is a positive thinker and motivator with the Fillies tracksters as they enter the outdoor portion of the 2012 track season.  
    Simpson simply states, “The potential is there to have our best team in years,” when he discusses the 2012 Fillies.  Simpson’s positive attitude is not one of false promise, however, as the Fillies are loaded in many of the events which make up a track meet.  

  • Breds track squad looks to...

    Harrison County Thorobreds Track Coach Robert Walker is not one to talk a bigger game than he can play.  
    Walker generally understates his team’s abilities until they have proven on the track and in the field that they are able to perform to a high level.  
    So, when Robert Walker says the team’s strengths are “everything” one sits up and takes notice.

    Harrison County bowlers compete
    in region this Saturday
    The Harrison County High School bowling team, headed by Coach Petey Reynolds, will compete Saturday in Lexington in the regional tournament.  
    The girls, after a fast start, have struggled in the latter part of the season and hope to right the ship in the regional tussle.  The Fillies record is 9-4 in matches and 50-41 in games.  

  • Harrison County tennis returns...

    Head tennis coach Kara Mattox welcomes back to the courts on the Hilltop many veteran players including 10 seniors along with some newcomers who she hopes can contribute before the season is too far along.  
    All of these veterans returning and the chance to host the 2012 Regional Tournament have the tennis faithful abuzz about the upcoming season.  

  • 2012 Fillies softball, a mixture...

    Harrison County High School softball coach Christine Garnett enters her fifth year as the leader of the Fillies with an unusual mixture of experience and youth.  
    What is most unusual is that the youth also have some of the experience.  

  • Breds and Fillies excel at Mason...

    The Mason Dixon Games is a long-running prestigious indoor track meet which is considered the state championships of the indoor season.  
    The Harrison County track teams performed at Broadbent Arena Saturday and came away with very impressive showings in this tough competition.
    The Fillies had fewer participants than the Thorobreds but came away with a state champion in shot put, Natasha Ingram. Ingram heaved the round ball 30 feet, 8 inches to place her name in a select group of Harrison County athletes in the sport of track and field.
