  • Track squads finish 4th at Scott...

    The Scott County All Comers Meet was held on Tuesday, April 27, with nine girls’ and boys’ teams in competition. 

    Coach Danny Simpson reports that the teams are progressing, but that they have a ways to go. 

    “Our schedule keeps getting tougher,” he observed. “We need to stay healthy and continue to improve as we near the regional competition. We are a much better team than we were a month ago.” 

    On this cold and windy Tuesday, the teams had some good individual and relay results.

  • Tennis teams split matches with...

    Harrison County’s varsity tennis squads played host to Paris and Montgomery County last week with the same but different results. 

    In the Paris match, the girls were edged out by the Lady Hounds 2-3 while the boys won 3-0. 

    The next night versus Montgomery County’s Indians, the boys were soundly defeated 0-9 but the girls won 5-4.

  • Fillies take record to 19-2 with...

    The Harrison County McDonald’s Classic didn’t get to play through to its end due to the rain and storms of Saturday. However, there couldn’t have been a better game than the Fillies and Grant County’s Lady Braves on Friday night. 

    Before we go into that game, the first Fillies game of the evening was the 5:30 p.m. start against Tates Creek, who came into the fray with a 1-15 record. 

    Harrison County began the night with a 17-2 record and a 10-game winning streak as they faced the hapless Lady Commodores.

  • Luke Garnett is “Mr....

    At the Georgetown College Athletics Awards program, Luke Garnett of Harrison County was named “Mr. Georgetown.”  This award recognizes achievement on the field of endeavor as well as in the classroom and the community.  During the Mid South Conference Track Meet Garnett took second in the 10,000M Run (32:54.34) third in the 5000M Run (15:55.38) and was a member of the third place 4 x 800M Relay Team.

    Harrison County track schedule change

    The track meet scheduled for Friday, April 30, at Madison Central has been cancelled. The Woodford County Invitational on Saturday, May 1 will replace the Madison Central meet on the schedule. 

    Little League start delayed by weather

    The rain of Friday, Saturday and again Monday have set back the start of the Little League season. 

  • Trial by media, not how it is...

    Ben Roethlisberger’s guilt remains in question. If nothing else, he is guilty of extremely poor judgment and of being too big for his britches. However, no state or federal laws contain any punishment for poor judgment, being a jerk, or any other things that are known for sure about Big Ben. 

    We can speculate about what he actually did with the young woman who was in the bar though she was under age. Of course, I know that being underage is not reason enough to be mistreated, I am just saying she was somewhere she wasn’t supposed to be. 

  • Good weather, 34 teams and...

    The 41st annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet caught a break from Mother Nature Saturday as the rain held off until the last event making the weather nice for the highly anticipated meet. 

    The field of 34 teams featured schools which figure to be very much in contention for regional and state honors at the end of the year.  

    This was the first invitational meet at the Harrison County Athletic Complex and coaches, athletes and fans continue to lavish praise upon the facility.

  • Thorobreds beat Pendleton 12-2...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds came back a little rusty from the week long lay off, but still were able to defeat the Pendleton County Wildcats 12-2 Tuesday afternoon.  

    Harrison County scored five runs in the bottom of the second on two hits, three walks and two Wildcat errors to start the rout. 

    The Wildcats did come back in the top of the third as they put together a hit, a walk and a fielder’s choice followed by another single to pick up their only earned run of the game.

  • Tennis team continues successful...

    Monday night at the Harrison County tennis courts, the Fillies and Thorobreds tennis teams smashed out a win over Nicholas County taking 11 of 12 matches. 

    The match featured an unusual mixed pairs win for Ashlyn Techau and Jade Jenkins as they defeated a boys pair of Scalf and Fryman for the Bluejackets. The boys matches were extremely one sided as all matches, but one was a 6-0 win for Harrison County. The other match was a 6-1 win. 

  • Fillies roll to 10th straight 10...

    Shirley Field once again hosted a tournament-type game as the atmosphere was electric for the Lexington Catholic versus Harrison County game.

    Catholic, sporting a modest 10-8 record entering the contest, is still highly regarded as a contender for district and regional crowns. They have played tough competition from eight of the regions in the state and have given a good account of themselves. So don’t let the record fool you, this is a quality opponent.
