  • Tracksters finish second at...

    The Harrison County Thorobred and Fillies braved the cold Saturday and had their best results of the season in the Scott County All Comers Meet in Georgetown.

    Both teams finished second in their respective meets, with host Scott County winning both meets convincingly.

    With eight teams participating in both meets, the Scott County boys piled up 211 points while Harrison County finished a distant second with 115. Franklin County was third, Paris fourth, Tates Creek fifth, GRC sixth, Sayre seventh and Dunbar eight.

  • Fillies drop Bluejackets, 7-4

    The Harrison County Fillies softball team defeated district foe Nicholas County, 7-4, last Thursday on the road in Carlisle.

    The Fillies wasted no time in the first inning capitalizing on several Nicholas County miscues.

    Lorraine Dennie started off the inning by reaching first on an error. However, a fielder’s choice by Michelle Carson sent Dennie to the dug out. Rachel Hatfield singled and was followed by Charley Hatfield, who reached first on another Nicholas County error, which brought Carson across the plate.

  • McDonald’s Classic...

    The toughest opponent the Harrison County Thorobreds have faced this year is not ranked in the state coaches poll. It is not a particularly good hitting, pitching or fielding team… it doesn’t even wear uniforms.

    Far and away the toughest opponent the Breds have had to contend with, is Mother Nature.

    In the past week and a half, Harrison County has played three games, and those were in less than 24 hours at the Greenup County Bash. Harrison County was rained out last Thursday, this Monday and Tuesday.

  • Harrison County archers garner...

    Harrison County archers recently competed in the National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament held in Louisville and represented their community well. The middle school squad received their first ever top five finish in the state with a team score of 3,169. The team earned a fifth place finish out of 35 teams. Justin Barnes led the way for the boys with a 277 ranking him 19th in the state. Julia Landsberg led the girls with a 267 ranking her 26th.

  • Breds stay unbeaten in Kentucky

    The weather refused to cooperate and the Frank Shoop Classic this past weekend was aborted, but Harrison County managed to get two games in anyway, winning both and extending its winning streak to five straight games.

    Harrison County got the first night of the tournament in on Thursday night, defeating Conner 11-5 in the first game, with Estill County turning back Beechwood 13-9 in the nightcap.

    All of Friday night’s games were washed out by rain. Saturday’s games, and the tournament, was also canceled as the field was not playable until later in the day.

  • The Masters, ‘a trip...

    Well, did you see my wife and me this past weekend?

    We were right there, along with about 50,000 other people, at the Augusta National Golf Course, site of the annual Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Ga.

    With tickets to the Masters as hard to find as hen’s teeth, Kelly and I stumbled upon two tickets to the Masters as a local friend who has gone for years, was unable to stay for the final two rounds of the four-round event. He asked if we were interested in meeting him in Augusta after the second round and then attending the Saturday and Sunday rounds.

  • Fillies sweep Bracken tourney

    On Saturday, the Harrison County Fillies started a new winning streak and won three straight games to capture the championship trophy of the Webber Farms/Bracken County Invitational Softball Tournament.

    After having their Friday night game rained out in the six-team tournament, the Fillies beat Mason County and Scott High in pool play, before besting Simon Kenton in the title game late on Saturday night.
