  • Score 'N' More
  • Clifford, Markley state...

    Bryson Clifford and Jacob Markley, seniors at Harrison County High School, will get a chance to compete for the tennis state championship next Thursday at the Hilary Boone Tennis Complex at the University of Kentucky.  The two each finished third in the region losing to the No. 1 seeds in the region on Monday afternoon.
    Clifford battled Meredith Laskey of Highlands losing 0-6, 0-6 in sets that were much more contested than the score might indicate.  

  • Fillies come from behind for 7-6...

    The Harrison County Fillies spotted the Nicholas County Lady Jackets a 6-1 advantage after two innings and then came back for a 7-6 win Monday in Carlisle.  
    The big district game was a rematch of the April 22 game in Cynthiana where the Lady Jackets took a one-run win.  
    Walks and hit batters were the downfall for the home squad as the two Nicholas County pitchers combined for seven walks and five hit batters.  
    The Fillies managed only six hits as it is hard to establish a hitting routine with so few strikes being thrown.  

  • Breds break four-game losing...

    Harrison County’s four-game losing streak came to an end Tuesday night in Flemingsburg as the Breds defeated the Panthers (6-17) by a 7-4 score.
    On Monday night in a pitcher’s duel, Harrison County lost its fourth straight game by a 2-1 margin to Mason County.
    Harrison County’s John King and Mason County’s Michael Sutton each pitched scoreless baseball for the first six innings.  

  • Harrison County wins girls, boys...

    The track teams seemed to be coming together at the right time.  
    At least, that seemed to be the case on Thursday as the Fillies and Thorobreds were winners in the nine-team All Comers Meet at the athletic complex.  
    The Fillies scored 126 points to runner up Nicholas County’s 89 as they won the meet.
    After the Fillies, the meet was close as Paris followed Nicholas County with 80 points and George Rogers Clark came next with 79.  
    Pendleton County, Bourbon County, Sayre, Scott County and Bracken County trailed the field.

  • Title IX 42 years later

    When Title IX was first introduced as a part of the Education Amendment of 1972, the NCAA and many other institutions of education began gnashing of teeth and protesting as to how it would be the ruin of sports as we knew them at the time.  
    You see, there would be no way that the schools could afford to have the same schedules, pay for coaches, number of scholarships, same types of facilities and more for the female and male athlete.   

  • Breds find tough sledding in...

    On Thursday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds saw their five-game winning streak go by the wayside in the first inning. The Franklin County Flyers scored six times en route to a 6-2 victory.  
    Freshman hurler Nathan Fryman could not master his pitching locations and his teammates made three misplays in the first inning as the Flyers surprised the Breds with the scoring barrage.  
    At the same time, Flyer starter Quinton Brownlee retired the first 11 Thorobreds he faced as he hurled a complete game two hitter.

  • Fillies beat Paris 6-0 Thursday...

    The Harrison County Fillies defeated the Paris Lady Hounds Thursday night before embarking on a two-day trip to Owensboro to play in the Sports Warehouse Classic.  
    The Fillies won one of four games there playing top statewide competition.
    On Thursday, the much-improved Lady Hounds gave the Fillies a battle before falling by the 6-0 score.  
    Harrison County pitcher Jami Davis held the Paris squad to two hits, a walk and only four base runners while striking out 10.
