  • Fillies improve to 4-3 with wins over Bears and Panthers

    Wednesday night on Shirley Field the Harrison County Fillies made quick work of the Bracken County Lady Bears in a three-inning 16-0 rout.  
    Junior Jami Davis allowed only two hits, both in the first inning, as she shut down the Lady Bears (0-2).  
    Bracken County had back-to-back singles with one out in the top of the first but Davis struck out the next two batters to end the game’s only threat.
    Harrison County scored four times in the bottom of the first on five hits including three doubles in a row with two outs.
