  • Tennis, basketball awards...

     The Harrison County High School tennis teams had their end-of-season awards banquet on Friday night.              

    Co-coaches Betsy Clyde and Phyloss Ross handed out several awards to the Fillies and Thorobreds.

    The Bred Award and Fillie Award were voted on by team members and went to the boy and girl player who best exemplified qualities of leadership, sportsmanship and team play. Miranda Turk received the award for the girls while Ross Smith and Cody Landrum shared the award for the boys.

  • Breds one win from big dance

    On Tuesday night at St. Henry High School’s Paul Kramer Field, the Harrison County Thorobreds caught something contagious. No, it wasn’t the swine flu. It was hits, hits and more hits.

    The Harrison County offense erupted for nine runs on nine hits and sent 14 hitters to the plate in the first inning against Beechwood ace A.J. Smith, driving the Murray State signee from the game after only 40 pitches and after only two outs. Harrison County eventually pasted the Tigers in a five-inning affair, 14-2.

  • Fillies advance in Regional

    The Harrison County Fillies softball team took care of business on Monday afternoon, weathered a rain delay, and defeated St. Patrick in the first round of the eight-team 10th Region Tournament at Montgomery County High School.

    Harrison County got another good pitching performance, this time from Ashley Coppage, who tossed a one-hit shutout with the Fillies winning 8-0.

    Coppage allowed only a second inning single to Bracken County’s Morgan Wells. She retired the Polar Bears in order in five of the seven innings.

  • Breds, Fillies compete at AA...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies track teams continued a trend that their coaches have seen all season… Lots of good performances, but few great performances. Neither team was able to score a point at the Class AA State Track and Field Championships at the University of Louisville on Friday.

    The Thorobreds had eight athletes advance to the state meet and competed in eight events, while the Fillies had four competitors in four events.

  • Breds put freeze on Bracken...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds overcame the weather and knocked off Bracken County in a rain-delayed first-round game in the 10th Region Baseball Tournament at Scott High School on Tuesday night, 8-0.

    The Breds first-round game against the Polar Bears was to have been played on Monday afternoon, but was washed out, along with both lower-bracket games.

    All four first-round games were scheduled for Monday, but only one was completed before the rains came and forced cancellation of the other three contests.

  • Fillies claim District title

    Clutch hitting and a strong pitching performance by Tracey Hicks paved the way for Harrison County’s 4-1 victory on Tuesday night against host Nicholas County in the 38th District Softball Tournament title game.

    The district championship is Harrison County’s third in a row and sixth in the last nine years.

    Harrison County fell behind 1-0 when Nicholas County strung together a triple and single in the top of the second inning, but wasted no time in its half of the inning to take control.

    Samuel Eugene Robinson, 87

    Samuel Eugene Robinson, 87, died Saturday, May 9, 2009 at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. He was a retired coach, superintendent and served over 30 years as a school administrator. He served as principal of Oddville School from 1957-1958.

    He was preceded in death by his parents, Lewis and Ava Belle Mefford Robinson.

  • Fillies third, Breds sixth in...

    The Harrison County Fillies track team had its best regional track meet showing in years last Saturday, finishing third overall in the team standings. The HCHS Thorobreds didn’t fare quite as well and finished sixth, with nine schools competing in both meets.

    Harrison County is competing in Class AA for the first time this year, and the drop from AAA apparently helped both teams, in regards to  the numbers of athletes who qualified for this coming weekend’s state meet in Louisville.
