  • Grit not enough as Fillies fall...

    BThe Harrison County Fillies laid it all on the line Thursday night but came up a little short. The Fillies lost a double overtime thriller to the Nicholas County Lady Jackets in the finals of the 38th District basketball tournament.  
    Harrison County played the game from the start without starting forward Taylor Reffett, who was out with concussion-like symptoms, and then lost shooting guard Chelsea Ingram with two seconds gone in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.  
    The medical report is not meant to take away from the game that was played.

  • Still some good things going on

    Before I get into my article I want to apologize to Grant Carr and his family for omitting Grant in my article about the Collins game where I listed the seniors that started the game.  It should have read the five seniors that started Dillon Pulliam, Mason Ritchie, Landon Palmer, Grant Carr and long-time manager Russell Crosthwaite.  
    Sometimes I can blame my mistakes on the people working at the paper, but this time I’m afraid it was all me.

  • Fillies, Breds roll into...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds disposed of their opponents from Pendleton County Tuesday night with one-sided victories in the 38th District semi finals.  
    The games, which were played in Falmouth, saw the Fillies hold the Lady Cats to 18 points in a 44-to-18 romp and the Thorobreds whip the Wildcats 64 to 36.
    The first game of the night started slow with Harrison County holding a 6-to-4 lead at the end of the first period.  

  • Fillies, Thorobreds battle...

    There are no moral victories especially after a team has led for a good portion of the game. However, when one considers the competition, Friday’s games at Montgomery County might be considered a moral victory, at least for the Fillies.
    The Fillies started Friday’s game against the Lady Indians by playing with the same control as they have the last few games.  
    Coach Kim Furnish’s squad controlled the tempo of the game and played some steady defense to take a 9 to 5 lead at the end of the first stanza.  

  • Mattox finishes 7th in state...

    Harrison County’s 106-pound wrestler, freshman Michael Mattox, finished seventh in his weight class Friday and Saturday at the KHSAA State Championship Meet held at the Kentucky Horse Park.  
    Mattox suffered a one-point loss in a decision on Friday night to Ansar Kurbanov of Louisville Iroquois to put him into the consolation bracket. He battled back Saturday winning three straight before losing to Dallas Ochsenbein of North Oldham in his fourth match of the day.
