    Local resident Steve Chasteen was tabbed to umpire in his third KHSAA Fast Pitch Softball State Tournament three weeks ago in Owensboro. This time, Chasteen was selected to be one of the four umpires given the task of calling the championship game(s).

    Future Fillies Volleyball Camp

  • Fillies fall to Montgomery

    The winningest season in the history of Harrison County High School fast-pitch softball came to an end last week as the Fillies dropped a 6-2 decision to host Montgomery County in the semi-final round of the 10th Region Tournament.

    Harrison County, the home team on the scoreboard, surrendered two runs in the top of the first inning, and could never get their offense untracked against two Lady Indian pitchers.

  • 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.
