  • 10th Region Baseball on Hilltop...

    Only two teams are set as of right now, but the eight-team 10th Region Tournament will be played on the Hilltop next Monday thru Thursday.

  • HCMS to participate in state...

    The Harrison County Middle School boys and girls track teams will participate in the Kentucky Track and Cross Country Coaches Association Middle School State Championships at Dunbar High School this coming Saturday.

    The Colts, coached by Ricky Nichols, and the Fillies, coached by Alicia Glenn, will send participants to compete in the 18-event meet.

    Nichols is delighted with how his team has progressed through the spring 2008 season.

    I feel like we have had an awesome season, said Nichols. The kids have displayed great teamwork and have participated well in practices.

  • Bullock blasts Fillies past...

    It was a story-book ending for senior pitcher Megan Bullock on Tuesday night. After struggling with her control on the mound and seeing her team trail 7-4 to visiting Bracken County heading into the bottom of the seventh inning, Bullock blasted her first career home run, deep over the right center field fence for a walk-off 8-7 victory for the Harrison County Fillies on Senior Night.

  • Fillies, Breds prep for track...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds had a couple of track meets last week and wrap up the regular season tonight with their own all-comers meet on the Hilltop as both teams prepare for next Tuesdays Regional Track Meet at Henry Clay.

    On Tuesday, May 6, both teams traveled to Scott County and the Fillies had their best performance of the season, finishing second with a season-high 107 points.

    This meet was big for our field events, said HCHS girls coach Danny Simpson. Most of the season we have struggled to place, but we were much stronger on that day.

  • Breds, Fillies make showing in...

    The Harrison County doubles team of Seth Barnes and Hank Whalen are the only local entrants still alive in the boys and girls regional tennis tournament at Georgetown College. Weather permitting, the two Harrison County seniors played in the third and fourth rounds on Wednesday, and if successful, will play in the finals this afternoon.

    The Breds duo, third seeded in the tournament, had little trouble in their first round on Monday. After a first round bye, they dispatched Jacob Heller and Harrison Applegate of St. Patrick in the second round, in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0.

  • Brossart ends Breds 8-game...

    Brandon Martins first-inning two-run double and third inning RBI double appeared to be the impetus that would drive the Harrison County Thorobreds to their ninth straight win in high school baseball. That did not prove to be the case on Tuesday night in Northern Kentucky, however.

    It will be a tough task, but the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track teams will both be seeking to repeat as team champions today as they are hosting the 39th annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet.

    Both teams have been hit hard by graduation losses the last couple of years and both are showing some growing pains in trying to reload.

  • Fillies top LexCath in softball

    Some clutch hitting and pitching by senior Megan Bullock and a fine defensive play by sophomore shortstop Rachel Hatfield secured a big win over visiting Lexington Catholic in fast pitch softball on Tuesday night at Shirley Field.

    Bullock ripped a two-run single to right field in the first inning to stake the Fillies to a 2-0 lead, then pitched out of a couple of big jams later in the game as Harrison County ran its record to 11-7 on the year with a 6-5 win.
