  • On a roll

    Since losing to Scott County in the finals of the Scott County Invitational last weekend, the Harrison County Fillies soccer team has been gathering momentum, heading down the stretch of the regular season.

    Last Wednesday, the Fillies notched their biggest win of the season as they dumped perennial regional contender Clark County at LeBus Field, 4-1.

    Harrison County never trailed in the contest and allowed only a penalty kick goal to the Lady Cards that spoiled the shutout.

  • Whalen second at Grant Co....

    Harrison County senior golfer Polly Whalen appears to have her game rounding into form at just the right time.  With the regional tournament just three weeks away, Whalen had another solid finish last weekend in a one-day tournament.

    Whalen carded a 78 on Saturday at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Crittenden, good enough for a second place finish in the 65-player field in the Grant County Classic.

Young, a red-shirt freshman, played for the Toppers in their 63-7 loss to the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.

  • HCHS runners improve at AJ...
