  • Tennis players feted

    Last Saturday, members of the 2008 Harrison County High School tennis teams were honored at a banquet at the high school.

    Seth Barnes and Hank Whalen were honored for their achievements this season as a doubles team. The duo were runners-up in regional competition, advancing to the state tournament last week in Lexington.

    Their stay in the state tournament was brief as they were handled easily by a seeded team from Madison Central, 6-0, 6-0.

    However, Harrison County coach Jennifer Hatfield says that loss shouldnt diminish their season.

  • Fillies power past Nicholas in...

    The Harrison County Fillies put on quite a power display last Tuesday as they bashed Nicholas County in the 38th District Softball Tournament Championship Game, 13-4. The host Fillies hammered four home runs and banged out 21 hits as they won their second straight district title.

  • Rain delays Tuesday's...

    The 10th Region Baseball Tournament dodged one bullet from Mother Nature on Monday, but couldn't evade a second salvo on Tuesday.

    With the score tied at 1-1 between host Harrison County and 40th District runner-up Clark County heading into the bottom of the third inning, the skies opened up and washed out the rest of the lower bracket first-round games.

    Clark County took advantage of three first inning errors by the Breds to take a 1-0 lead. Beau Sanders knotted the score in the second inning with a solo home run.

  • Breds take another district title

    In life, there are several sure thingsdeath, taxes and the Harrison County Thorobreds winning district baseball championships. Last Thursday, the 2008 edition of the Thorobreds cashed yet another ticket as they routed Nicholas County in five innings, 11-1.

    Harrison County has been in the 38th District for three years now, and it is the third straight year they have won that title. In the old 37th District, the Breds dominated as well, winning all but five district titles in the last 30 years.

  • Breds beat Deming, advance in...

    It took them a couple of innings to get started, but the Harrison County Thorobreds finally got going and upended Deming 12-2 in the rain-delayed opening round of the 38th District Tournament on Tuesday night in Falmouth.

    The top-seeded Breds, now 29-5 on the season, scored three times in the third inning and added seven more in the fourth to distance themselves from the fourth-seeded Black Devils (8-18) and secure a spot in next weeks 10th Region Tournament, at Harrison County.

  • Fillies top Pendleton, play...

    The Harrison County Fillies played their way into the 10th Region Tournament with a 12-2 opening round win over Pendleton County on Tuesday night in the three-team 38th District Softball Tournament at Shirley Field.

    Delayed by one day due to a Monday night rain-out, Harrison County avoided a bases-loaded jam in the top of the first inning. After a couple of walks and an error loaded the bases, Harrison County pitcher Megan Bullock got out of the jam with a strikeout, a pop out and ground out.

  • Archery teams end season

    Harrison County archers finished their season with a recent trip to the National Archery in the Schools Program National Tournament in Louisville. Their presence at the national invitation-only tournament was based on their scores compiled at the state competition held back in March. Over 3,000 archers competed in the two-day event and it included archery programs from 30 states. It was the largest ever archery tournament in the nation.

  • HCHS duo are state bound

    It was a happy bunch of Harrison County tennis players and fans last week after HCHS seniors Seth Barnes and Hank Whalen upset top-seeded Jett Glass and Jordan Evans in the semi-finals of the 10th Region Tennis Tournament in Georgetown and secured a spot in the KHSAA Tennis Championships today in Lexington.

    Last Wednesday, the Harrison County pair lost the first set to Glass and Evans 6-4, but bounced back with a convincing 6-0 win in the second set, setting up a decisive third set.
