  • 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. 

  • Breds undefeated as they head to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team won three more times last week to take its season record to 7-0 defeating Paris and Scott High on the road and Nicholas County on the Hilltop.

    Wednesday at Paris Ryan Durbin and Mason Fowler combined to allow only three hits in the abbreviated 10-run rule game. Fowler also homered in his one at-bat, and Eric Sanders tripled and drove in four runs to lead the Thorobreds attack. 

  • Opening day for the Reds and the...

    In order of occurrence, I really enjoyed the inaugural track meet at the new track at the high school. 

    The pure joy from the Harrison County coaches that came from being the envy of the coaching community was great to see. Especially after years of having to travel to compete in top meets, the athletes and the coaching staff deserve to have this facility.  

    I thought that the meet was well run with a couple of exceptions, which I will not list because I know that the athletic department is also aware of them and is working for solutions.

  • Tennis team takes record to 3-1...

    The Harrison County tennis team ran its season record to 3-1 as they romped over district rivals Pendleton County and Deming last week. 

    First-year coach Kara Mattox’s netters only lost three matches in total as they ran rough shod over their opponents. 

    Last Wednesday, facing Pendleton County, the No. 1 and 2 singles players and all of the doubles for both boys and girls, won and in most cases by large margins.  

    The Pendleton County squad won only one match in the team play and two of the exhibition matches.

  • Fillies win Bracken Co....

    The Harrison County Fillies took three hard-fought victories in the Bracken County/Webber Farms Tournament in Brooksville over the weekend. 

    Walton Verona was the first opponent on Friday as they brought a 6-2 record to face the 2-1 Fillies. 

    Harrison County started the scoring in the top of the second as senior Kaitlyn Shepherd led off with a walk. Two errors and another walk later, the Fillies had a 1-0 lead with the bases loaded and no outs. 

  • Track meet big success

    The first-ever track meet at the new Harrison County Athletic Complex needed two ingredients for coaches Danny Simpson and Robert Walker to be happy. 

    First, things had to run smoothly, and second, the Breds and Fillies had to perform well and win. 

    Coach Simpson, in particular, was hoping for victories and smooth sailing to honor the past contributors to the track program.

  • Five inning game dispatches...

    Freshman Jordan Martin started his first varsity game this year on Tuesday and got plenty of support from his teammates to support his solid effort. The young hurler faced the minimum number of batters in his three innings pitched, striking out five and walking no one. Meanwhile, the Thorobred offense was smashing out 15 hits and scoring 20 runs to give him all of the support one could hope for in a baseball game. 

    Josh Moss led Harrison County in hits with three in three at bats while both Shane Fowler and Jared Martin smashed home runs.

  • 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.
