  • Northcutt is making Harrison...

    A few weeks ago, Brandon Barnett pinned his way to the 189 pound division high school wrestling state championship. 

    We have already established that high school baseball almost always has to consider the Thorobreds in the picture.

    There are many years when the cheerleaders are in the hunt for state awards.

  • Tennis team wins at home

    The Harrison County Tennis Team rolled past Bracken County Tuesday afternoon on their home court on the Hilltop. 

    The netters took 12 of the 15 matches as they took their first win of the year in grand fashion.

    No. 1 singles girl, Julie Henson, battled to an 8-8 tie and then lost the tiebreaker, and Katie O’Neal dropped her match to Shelby Hamilton 4-8, but after the two set backs, the Harrison County girls’ squad was only tested in one of the remaining matches.

  • Being a winner means never...

    I’ll have to admit that as an official sometimes I take up for them just because but most of the time I don’t. Especially basketball officials because, due to the nature of the game, I believe they sometimes call inconsistently. I don’t mean one official is inconsistent but that from one to the other they call and/or look for different things. But whatever you may believe about officiating some of the remarks that I heard and read after the games Saturday were kind of sad.

  • Tuesday’s rout...

    Mason County’s Royals ran into the proverbial buzz saw Tuesday afternoon as the Harrison County Fillies blitzed them 16-0 in three innings. 

    Tracey Hicks picked up the victory on the mound as she pitched two innings striking out four and giving up one single.  Rachel Hatfield pitched the third inning as Coach Christine Garnett is working on depth in her pitching staff. 

    The Fillies scored three times in the bottom of the first using walks and inept fielding by Mason County to score the runs.

  • Track and field season brings...

    Thanks to the new state of the art track facility there is great anticipation for the approaching track season. 

    Harrison County is hosting three big “all-comers” meets as well as hosting the most talented AA Region in the state for the regional meet. 

    In the second year for the Fillies and Thorobreds runners to be in this powerful region, Harrison County figures to compete for the championships.

  • Appropriate old sayings for...

    I admired my dad for many reasons. Some I inherited and passed along to the daughters and grand kids and some I did not inherit. Some I inherited and didn’t pass along, mainly because they didn’t need or want them. 

    My dad was a very patient person for the most part and one who would never intentionally say or do anything to offend anyone else. I inherited some of that quality, but not all and hope I passed it along. 

    There are some traits such as an old saying that fit every occasion, which I will go into in this column.

  • Softball Fillies rout Lexington...

    In what may be a preview of an outstanding season to come, the Harrison County Fillies beat Lexington Christian 23-0 Saturday afternoon in a pre-season scrimmage. In the game, played on Shirley Field, the Lexington squad managed one walk for their total offensive output. The Fillies used four total pitchers, Tracey Hicks, Ashley Coppage, and sixth graders Jamie Davis and Kecia Stephens to completely shut down the opposition. 

  • State Champ Barnett wins Most...

    Harrison County’s Wrestling Booster Club held the 16th annual Awards Bash at the Extension Office Sunday afternoon. 

    Coach Russ Riegel was the emcee and master of ceremony for the event which featured a lasagna dinner with salads, pizza and desert.

    Northcutt is state archery champ

    Middle school and high school students competed in the state archery tournament in Louisville Tuesday, coming home with the first ever state champ from Harrison County.

    HCHS sophomore Keith Northcutt won the high school division, with the highest individual overall score of 293 out of 300.

    HCMS eighth grader Brandon White placed seventh in the middle school division.

    “They behaved really well and I was proud of every one of them,” said head coach Rossie Barnes. “They all did good...”

  • Tennis team finds opener...

    Ross Smith won his number one singles match against Scott’s Cory Hudson 8-4, but that was all of the success Harrison County managed Tuesday night on the road at Scott. Charlie Smith fell to Erin Miller 4-8, Wes Barnett dropped his match to Michael Sandoval 2-8, Ben McDonald dropped a hard fought match to Adam Venci 5-8, Cory McCauley lost to Andreo Sebastiani 3-8 and Austin Roberts was white washed 0-8 by Sam Reihmer.
