    The Harrison County tennis team had some outstanding success Monday in the finals of the 10th Region tennis tournament played at Easy Walker Park in Mt. Sterling.  
    The Fillies finished runners-up in the team score but the real success story is in the doubles play.  
    In the first round on Saturday, both the Fillies doubles teams won their opening matches.

    The Paris Lady Hounds scored twice in the second, three times in the fifth and three more in the seventh inning to defeat the Harrison County Fillies 8-2 Wednesday on Shirley Field.  
    The 10-9 Lady Hounds were never seriously threatened as the Fillies mustered only three hits and struck out 11 times.  
    Kara Hines, Jima Hill and Hailey Herrington collected the three hits by Harrison County.

    The Alumni Baseball Night held last Friday brought several of the former players out for some hitting and just standing around and talking.  
    One of the questions that has been coming up around town and especially when former athletes get together is what has happened to our (Harrison County) sports programs?  
    The reference is generally referring to the boys’ programs, except this year there are concerns about the softball record since the girls went to the state last year and have almost the same girls back.

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts ran their season record to 9-1 this past week with three wins.  The Colts overcame a real slow start to edge Bourbon County last Tuesday with a Garrett Dawson goal in the second half to win 1-0 over the Bourbon County Middle School squad.
    Thursday, the Colts traveled to Georgetown to face Georgetown Middle School.  The Colts were without one of their top scorers in Cameron White and again came out of the gate a little slow.

    The Harrison County Middle School Soccer Fillies won the Bluegrass Conference title and the number one seed in the upcoming tournament Friday as they beat Royal Springs 4-3 on the Hilltop.  
    The Fillies are two-time defending conference champions and both championship game wins were over Royal Springs.
    The Friday match was played without three of their core players as Reece Shirley, Payton Slade and Kylie Hudgins were pursuing other endeavors.

    The Thursday night home loss to Scott County was an all-time low for Mac Whitaker-coached Harrison County baseball teams. It was the first five-game losing streak in Whitaker’s Hall of Fame career at Harrison County.
    The Scott County Cardinals battered Harrison County hurler Luke Muth for nine runs on seven hits through the first three innings before fellow junior Eli Mattox came in to relieve.
