    Harrison County Invitational

    Track Meet Saturday

    The 41st annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet is this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m.

    The field for this meet always contains the most promising athletes in the central and north central part of the state in nearly every event.

  • Fillies take extra inning...

    The setting was much like a district or region game on the Hilltop at Shirley Field Thursday night. 

    Paul Laurence Dunbar brought a misleading 5-5 record in to face the 8-2 Fillies in a key contest for both teams.   

    A key contest for Harrison County because it was a good measuring stick to see where they stood in comparison to the state’s better programs, and key for Dunbar to bounce back from a disheartening defeat at the hands of the best team in Lexington, the Lafayette Lady Generals by a narrow 4-0 score. 

  • Little League season: A time for...

    Saturday marks the beginning of the 2010 Little League season in Harrison County at the River Road Park. All teams are scheduled to play and, weather permitting, will start the season off with a bang. 

    I will be watching with great interest the plight of the Auto Systems team since our oldest grandson, Hayden is playing on that team.

    The other two grandsons are in coach pitch so that too will be a regular destination.  That is unless the princess CeCe decides that we don’t need to go, but that too is another story.

    All comers meet

    Thursday at the

    Harrison Co. Athletic Complex

    The Harrison County track Fillies and Thorobreds will host a nine-team all comers meet Thursday at the new complex on the Hilltop. Participating in the meet will be Nicholas County, Bracken County, Campbell County, Carroll County, Bryan Station, Scott County, Pendleton County, Paris and the host Harrison County. 

    This will be another step toward preparing the boys’ and girls’ squads for the upcoming tough Harrison County Invitational as well as the region and state meets.

  • Lee Greenwood could write this...

    Remember the Lee Greenwood anthem “God Bless the USA?” 

    I’m singing now, but you can’t hear it: “I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.” 

  • Fillies skin Wildcats Tuesday...

    The Harrison County Fillies got back on the winning track Tuesday night with a 17-0 beating of the Pendleton County Wildcats.

    The game was the first pitching victory for senior Rachel Hatfield as she no-hit the home team in five innings. For the game, she gave up six walks and struck out 12 with only one ball hit fair by Pendleton County. That was a ground ball to second base which resulted in an out. 

  • Tennis squads close at Campbell...

    The Harrison County tennis team hit the road immediately after returning from spring break visiting Campbell County on Monday and Paris on Tuesday night. 

    They were unable to win either of the matches, which now brings the season record to 3-3 with a trip to Pendleton County on Wednesday and a home match with St. Pat on Thursday still to come this week.

    Campbell County’s match started off on a positive note as No. 1 singles player Ross Smith bested Russell of Campbell 6-3, 6-2 in the first match.

  • Thorobreds fare well in Bishop...

    Playing against some top competition the Harrison County Thorobreds won two and lost two in Las Vegas last week.

    The Thorobreds faced three teams who would likely be in the top 15 in Kentucky and one team, Bishop Gorman, which is considered in the top five in the country.

  • Chasteen, Thorobreds shut down...

    Senior hurler Christian Chasteen allowed only four hits and one run Tuesday evening on the Hilltop as the Thorobreds went to 10-2 for the year with a 6-1 win over Bishop Brossart. 

    The Mustangs began the day with a fine 11-2 season record and are among the teams thought to be a challenger for the region crown this year. 

    They were able to jump out on top as they plated their only run in the second as three singles sandwiched around a fielder’s choice sent third baseman Anthony Steffen in to score.  

  • Fillies win two of three at...

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled on Thursday of spring break to play in the Laker Classic held at Russell County. The Fillies played two games on Friday to determine the seeds for Saturday’s single elimination tournament. 

    In the first game, Cumberland County’s Lady Panthers came in with a 3-3 record and a potent offense. Harrison County showed a little rust from the five-day lay off struggling defensively while Cumberland County was hitting as advertised.
