    The Harrison County Fillies golf team traveled to Grant County to play in the Grant County Invitational, along with a number of teams from the northern part of the state.  Ryle won the event with 328 and Notre Dame was second with 349.

    The Harrison County girls did not have enough to participate in the team competition, but had three girls participate as individuals.

  • Fall sports are here, let’s go...

    The 2016-17 school year starts in a week and there is much excitement on the Hilltop.

    Of course, there are other things to be excited about other than sports but since this is a sports column I will contain myself and only talk sports.  

    One sport that has been going on for twelve long years is the continued banter and now a law suit about the Handy House.  What a colossal waste of time.

  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors: Fall...

    Chase Reed is 13 years old.  He is an eighth grader at Harrison County Middle School.  

    Just a look at Chase and he appears to be just a nice looking youngster going about his day like many others.  

    The old saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ has never been more accurate than with Chase Reed.

    The Thorobreds played at Oldham County Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. to attempt to beat the heat on the very warm day.  

  • What is America’s favorite sport?

    There has been some debate lately about what is America’s favorite sport and second and third and so on.  

    The National Football League seems to be hands down the top among most with the number two spot disagreed upon. College football and Major League Baseball are the two sports that seem to vie for the second spot in most nationwide surveys. However, baseball’s demographic is of a much older group.
