    The Harrison County volleyball team began a swing through its district opponents on Tuesday night when the Fillies traveled to Brooksville and defeated Bracken County in two straight games, 27-25 and 25-8.

    “We played very poorly in that first game, but bounced back and played much better in the second game,” said HCHS coach Bill Faulkner.

    Faulkner said the Fillies were playing without regular setter Hillary Bennett who was suffering from the flu, but hitter Madeline Schroeder is closer to being 100 percent after returning from an injury.

    The Bearcats scored the lone goal in the first half to take a 1-0 lead to intermission.

  • Breds outlast Newport, 20-14

    Anytime you can go into the lion’s den of Northern Kentucky football and come home with a win, a notch can be placed on your belt.

    Coach Mark Carroll and his Harrison County High School football team can break out the leather tools and start notching, after the Thorobreds overcame turnovers and turned back home-standing Newport on Friday night 20-14.

  • On a roll

    Since losing to Scott County in the finals of the Scott County Invitational last weekend, the Harrison County Fillies soccer team has been gathering momentum, heading down the stretch of the regular season.

    Last Wednesday, the Fillies notched their biggest win of the season as they dumped perennial regional contender Clark County at LeBus Field, 4-1.

    Harrison County never trailed in the contest and allowed only a penalty kick goal to the Lady Cards that spoiled the shutout.

  • Whalen second at Grant Co....

    Harrison County senior golfer Polly Whalen appears to have her game rounding into form at just the right time.  With the regional tournament just three weeks away, Whalen had another solid finish last weekend in a one-day tournament.

    Whalen carded a 78 on Saturday at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Crittenden, good enough for a second place finish in the 65-player field in the Grant County Classic.
