  • Smith brothers reach finals in...

    By all accounts, the inaugural high school tennis tournament at the nearly brand-new Hilltop Tennis Complex on Saturday was a huge success.

    Six teams competed in boys and girls singles and doubles action in the Harrison County Open Tennis Tournament (HOTT), and also competed against extremely windy conditions.

  • Martin perfect as Breds take 3rd...

    Junior pitcher Jared Martin tossed the second seven-inning perfect game in school history last Thursday as Harrison County defeated Simon Kenton 2-0 in the first game of the McDonald’s Classic.

    “I was aware of the perfect game after a few innings, but didn’t really worry about it at all,” said Martin. “The first batter of the game hit the ball hard to left field, but they didn’t hit too well after that.”

  • Fillies win third tournament of...

    The Harrison County Fillies softball team kept its winning streak alive, winning six games over the weekend and capturing the championship of the Whitley County/First Priority  Invitational Tournament.

    The Fillies now have won 11 games in a row and 16 of their last 17, as their season’s record stands at 17-3.

    In the Whitley County tournament, Harrison County won all of its pool play games, defeating Cumberland County on Friday night, 7-0, and two more pool play games on Saturday, 14-5 over McCreary Central and 6-3 over Middlesboro.

  • Marshall ‘Ignites&...

    By his own admission, Clif Marshall, was not one of the fastest running backs in Harrison County High School football history.  In spite of his lack of blazing speed, Marshall is in the unique position of helping prospective NFL players earn thousands, if not millions, of dollars by improving their own 40-yard dash time by fractions of a second.

  • HCMS Soccer undefeated

    The Harrison County Middle School boys’ soccer team finally surrendered a goal on Tuesday night, but is undefeated in Bluegrass Conference play with a couple of weeks left in the season.

    The 8th Grade Colts are currently 8-0-1 on the season and have two home games left in the regular season, before beginning post-season tournament play.

    On Tuesday, they defeated Royal Springs Middle School 3-1, and allowed their only goal of the year, a penalty kick goal after a questionable foul call inside the box.

T-Ball participants should be informed of their teams by their coaches by Friday, May 1.

  • Tracksters continue to improve

    It was a busy week for both the HCHS Breds and Fillies track teams as both competed in a pair of invitationals.

    On Thursday, Harrison County hosted the 40th annual Harrison County Invitational, and both teams fared extremely well.

    The Breds romped to an easy team win, racking up 177 points to outdistance second place Pendleton County (95.5). The Fillies portion of the meet saw them tie with Lafayette for the top spot with 122.5 points apiece.

  • 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.
