    Harrison runners compete

    at Mason County indoor

    On Saturday, Feb. 16, Coach Danny Simpson and two Harrison County hurdlers traveled to Mason County to compete in an indoor track meet with a 20-team field.

    On Friday, Feb. 8, the Harrison County Thorobreds (9-12) used all four quarters to pick up a tough road win against the Nicholas County Bluejackets (3-16) in Carlisle. The Breds took the lead for the first time in the fourth quarter and held on for a 70-63 victory.

    In early December, the Breds fended off a late-game rally by the Bluejackets that cut their lead to just two points and ran out to a 68-53 victory for their second win of the season.

  • HCHS bowlers finish regular...

    The Harrison County High School girls and boys bowling teams took to the lanes for their last regular season match of the year on Sunday, traveling to Georgetown to face-off with Scott County.

    The girls team ended its regular season much in the same way they started it, on top of their competition. They dominated the match, winning all seven possible points.

    In each of the regular four-person team games, the girls recorded solid wins. In the two Baker games, the girls continued the good play, winning both convincingly.

  • Fillies come up just short...

    The Paris Lady Hounds (16-7) came to the Hilltop on Friday, Feb. 8, and held on to defeat the Harrison County Fillies (11-12) 35-33.

    The first half of the game was an offensive nightmare for the Fillies, who were unable to put their first points on the scoreboard until there was just 4:08 left in the second quarter.

    Fortunately for Harrison County, the Lady Hounds had problems of their own putting points on the scoreboard and the score was just 6-0 after the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Fillies were out-scored 11-9 and trailed 17-9 at the halftime break.
