    Breds, Fillies falter on the lanes

    The Harrison County Bowling Team dropped a pair of matches to visiting Clark County on Sunday at Galactic Alley.

    The Breds won the first two games of their match with the Cards, but dropped the next four, along with a fifth point for total pins.

    Zach Schneider rolled a 210 and Zack Gaunce had 188 as HCHS won that first game, 563-548, then Justin Fryman had 203 and Nick Marcum rolled 200 in the second game win, 579-578.

    It was all downhill from there for the Breds however, as the visitors won the last four points.

  • Fillies continue to struggle

    The Harrison County Fillies continue their trend of playing well in spurts, but not well enough to seal the deal.

    Harrison County lost its fifth straight game, and 10th in their last 11, with a 53-38 decision to Pendleton County on Monday night in Falmouth.

    Pendleton County went on a 10-2 run in the second quarter to take the lead for good. Charley Hatfield led Harrison County with 14 points.

  • Biddle continues to run strong...

    Right when she learned to walk, Debbie Biddle said she learned to run.

     

    “Don’t we all run before we walk?” she said.

     

    A computer teacher at Harrison County High School, Biddle runs twice a day... running at least 50 miles each week.

     

    “I started running like I run now because I was no longer playing team sports, and still wanted to exercise,” she said.

     

    At college, Biddle began long-distance running, and she hasn’t stopped since.

     

  • Hilltop News

    The recent bad weather has the athletic department and coaches at Harrison County High School scrambling to make some sense of their respective schedules as the regular season is winding down and post-season play is looming.

    With cancellations of games and attempts at having them rescheduled, here is the latest scheduling news for winter sports teams at HCHS.

  • Breds and Fillies drop road games

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds both lost tough games last week and are looking for the weather to clear so they can get back in the gym and correct some mistakes.

    On Saturday, the Breds were once again plagued by poor post defense as they dropped a 68-64 decision to Madison Southern in the West Jessamine Colt Classic in Nicholasville.

    Eagles center Joey Wallace worked on the Breds around the basket and scored 25 of his game-high 31 points in the second half.
