    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team got off to a rough start Saturday when they lost a scrimmage at Pendleton County to Holy Cross of Covington, 3-1.  
    The loss wasn’t the rough part though. Learning that senior Taylor Landrum will be out for the biggest part of the season with ACL surgery was certainly a blow to the squad.  
    Amelia Bolin, who was last season’s leader in assists and goals scored, also sat out the scrimmage with an injured knee.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds golf team continues to challenge for the top spots in area invitational tournaments while facing some top competition.  
    The Breds traveled to the Maysville Country Club on Wednesday, Aug. 5, to face a field of 14 other teams in the Mason County/St. Patrick Invitational.  
    Mason County won the event paced by medalist Tyler Lippert, who shot a three-under-par 69. West Jessamine was second, 13 strokes behind the winning Royals.

    The 2015 Harrison County Football coaching staff is a combination of a few coaches from previous years and many new coaches.  
    Neil Furnish is in his 11th season as a coach, but his first as a head coach, thus this will be the first staff he has compiled.  
    One constant among the coaches is that most of them are Harrison County graduates or Harrison County natives.

    Most coaches who graduated eight seniors would be crying the blues, but not Harrison County’s Thorobreds soccer coach Nick Hill.  
    “I am looking forward to this season and expect great things out of this group,” Hill said last week. “We have some great leaders who are really stepping up and making each other and every one else work hard.”

    The Harrison County golf team began a most ambitious schedule last week with matches on four different venues.  
    The Pendleton County Tournament, played on the course of the Northern Kentucky Golf Club, was the setting for the first outing for the Fillies and the Thorobreds on Friday.
    The Thorobreds had their most successful tournament in Coach Jason Crisp’s eight-year tenure as they finished second in the 12-team tournament.

    Harrison County’s volleyball coach Bill Faulkner likes to use the Bluegrass State Games as a measuring stick to see what his team needs to work on before the regular season gets under way.  
    This year’s games presented a perfect opportunity as the Fillies ran into some stiff competition yet fared well for the most part.

    The Major League Baseball trade deadline is fast approaching and already the Reds have sent Johnny Cueto to the Kansas City Royals.  There have been a few other trades but Cueto is the first really big-name player, sorry Aramis Ramirez, to be traded in this “trading period.”  
    Ramirez was traded to the Pirates from Milwaukee last Thursday for a couple of minor league prospects and is probably, next to Cueto, the best player to be moved during the trading deadline time period.
