  • Track enters region with home...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    “We are not the same track team that we were at the start of the season,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “We have made improvements despite injuries and the weather. We will be a factor in the region competition.”

  • Breds 17-6 heading into last two...

    Harrison County’s baseball Thorobreds split four games in the past six days. After Monday night’s Senior Night win over Mason County, they stand at 17-6 with 10 days left in the regular season.
    Last Wednesday the Breds traveled to Scott County where they got two hits and made five errors.  
    Three Harrison County hurlers combined to give up eight hits, walk eight and hit three batters.  
    Scott County left 13 runners stranded or the score could have been worse than the 10-0 five-inning defeat.

  • Fillies win three district games...

    Last Wednesday the Harrison County Fillies traveled to Carlisle to take on district rival Nicholas County.  Coach Christine Garnett’s charges rallied in the fifth inning to put a close game out of reach by scoring six runs in the inning.  
    Before the fifth, the two teams battled evenly with the Fillies holding a 3-2 advantage.  
    Jami Davis scattered six hits while striking out nine in a very good performance for the Fillies.  

  • Fillies, Breds do well at Scott...

    “We are a better team than we were two weeks ago,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “But we still have a long way to go.  I am proud of how hard the team is working.”  
    These words came after Friday’s meet at Montgomery County and Tuesday’s meet in Scott County where the Fillies and Breds had very good showings.  
    On Tuesday, the Fillies and Breds faced a strong field of 10 teams in the Scott County All Comers.  

  • Spring game close as Maroon...

    The maroon players defeated the white squad in an evenly matched scrimmage, 21-14, in the Harrison County High School spring game Thursday evening.  
    The game, played on Lawson Field in Ingles Stadium, was the first for the Neil Furnish Thorobreds on the Hilltop.  The game featured two 20-minute halves played with a running clock with 40 players dressed for the occasion.  
    The baseball players who also play football along with a couple of track athletes and a few injured players did not participate in the scrimmage.

  • Football back behind the scene...

    The Spring Football Game and the NFL draft brought football off of the back page and back to the front for a couple of weeks.  
    The draft takes four days and is more highly watched and discussed than the NBA playoffs and regular season baseball though the “real” games aren’t for another few months.  
    Having UK’s Bud Dupree go to the Steelers was very pleasing to me as a Steelers fan.  Dupree has what it takes to be a really good defensive player in Pittsburgh and the Steelers style of play fits him very well.

  • Tennis region wraps up season...

    The Harrison County High School tennis team played host to the 10th Region Tournament this week at the tennis courts on the Hilltop.  
    The tournament began May 1 and the finals will be on Friday, May 8. This tournament follows the end of the regular season for the Harrison County team, which was last Wednesday at Pendleton County.  
    The Fillies finished a very successful regular season with a four-match sweep of the Lady Cats tennis squad.  

  • Harrison County wins two of...

    South Spencer Lady Rebels of Rockport, Indiana, beat the Fillies 10-0 in five innings Friday night, but the Fillies rebounded to beat two Kentucky teams for a successful trip to the Owensboro Catholic Tournament.
    The Fillies had just arrived on site and were forced to play without a chance to warm up, which contributed to South Spencer scoring four runs in the first and two in the second.  
    Harrison County was only able to muster two hits while the Lady Rebels, who were playing their second game of the day, smashed out 13 hits to score their 10 runs.
