  • Fillies defeat Augusta, lose at Bryan Station

    The Harrison County Fillies wrapped up the regular season Friday night with a 60-31 loss at Bryan Station after beating Augusta 55-50 Wednesday on the Hilltop.  
    The Fillies end the season with a 5-21 record yet are an improving ball club.  
    On Wednesday, Harrison County overcame an outstanding performance from Augusta sophomore Jerica Kelsch who lit up the score board for 31 points.  
    Kelsch scored only two points in the opening period, which saw Harrison County lead 17-6 at the stop.
