  • 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.

  • Fillies claim District title

    Clutch hitting and a strong pitching performance by Tracey Hicks paved the way for Harrison County’s 4-1 victory on Tuesday night against host Nicholas County in the 38th District Softball Tournament title game.

    The district championship is Harrison County’s third in a row and sixth in the last nine years.

    Harrison County fell behind 1-0 when Nicholas County strung together a triple and single in the top of the second inning, but wasted no time in its half of the inning to take control.

  • Fillies third, Breds sixth in...

    The Harrison County Fillies track team had its best regional track meet showing in years last Saturday, finishing third overall in the team standings. The HCHS Thorobreds didn’t fare quite as well and finished sixth, with nine schools competing in both meets.

    Harrison County is competing in Class AA for the first time this year, and the drop from AAA apparently helped both teams, in regards to  the numbers of athletes who qualified for this coming weekend’s state meet in Louisville.

  • Netters conclude season at...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies tennis teams had their respective seasons come to an end last weekend at the regional tournament at the Georgetown College Tennis Complex.

    Both teams had more than respectable finishes, though no entry made it into the semi-final round.

    “For the first time since I can remember, every one of our entries won their first-round matches and several won second round matches,” said co-coach Betsy Clyde.

    Two years ago the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) added an invitation-only tournament to successful archers across North America. It is now the largest archery tournament in the world; attracting almost 5,000 students from across the United States and Canada.

    Harrison County is now turning some heads as they placed 8th in the middle school division out of 65 invited teams. Their elementary division (only 6th grade) placed 13th out of 58 teams. High school archers placed 37th out 84 teams.
