  • Fillies lose key district game...

    Tracey Hicks struck out 11 Nicholas County batters while walking four and giving up five hits. Despite this performance, the Fillies dropped their eighth game in 11 starts, 7-3, to the Lady Jackets Thursday in Carlisle.
    “We just didn’t show up to play,” lamented Coach Christine Garnett. “Our intensity level was non-existent.  When you out-hit a team like we did and strike out 11 batters, there is no way you should lose a game.”

  • MESA donates AED to the Harrison...

    Marshall Emergency Services Associates (MESA), Harrison Memorial Hospital’s emergency department physician group, donated an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) to the Harrison County Recreation Department on March 28.  
    An AED is a small, portable device that analyzes the heart’s rhythm for any abnormalities and, if necessary, directs the rescuer to deliver an electrical shock to the heart of someone suffering from sudden cardiac arrest. This shock, called defibrillation, may help the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.

  • Breds split pair in rain-...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds were scheduled to host the annual Frank Shoop Invitational Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but rain washed away the Saturday portion of the tournament.  
    Harrison County would have been better off if it would have rained on Thursday as they dropped a 7-6 game to Western Hills as the Wolverines scored five unearned runs in route to the win.  
    The Thorobreds scored six times in the first inning on five hits, the big blast a three-run home run by senior Shane Fowler.

  • Fillies continue to struggle...

    The youthful Harrison County Fillies continued to battle as they played through a tough part of their schedule last week.  
    Coach Christine Garnett’s squad hosted the powerful Walton Verona Bearcats at Shirley Field on Wednesday.   
    The Fillies were soundly defeated by the 10-4 Walton Verona team as they outscored the home team by a 16-4 count.  The loss left the Fillies with a 2-5 record going into the Kenton County Classic on Friday.

  • Tennis squads lose at Montgomery...

    The weather cooperated enough last week for the Harrison County tennis teams to play two matches with far different results.
     The Bracken County Polar Bears and Montgomery County Indians were the opponents for Coach Kara Mattox’s netters.
    The Polar Bears were no match for the Harrison County teams as the visiting Breds and Fillies swept to 5-0 victories.  
    The Fillies had a little more trouble than the Thorobreds as they had a couple of close matches before pulling out the wins.
