Harrison girls’ track coach Scott Menze was hoping for a better finish for his team than ninth place in the 12-team Harrison Invitational track meet last week, but poor weather to start the season has teams still trying to figure out what events are best for their athletes.

“We want all our sprinters to at least get a mark in the 100, 200, and 400,” said Harrison coach Menze. “Because we missed the first two meets of the season (due to bad weather), we are still experimenting.”

One of those sprinters is Claudia Dawson, a regional qualifier in the 400 meters a year ago. Last week she won the event with a solid time of 1:03.78.

The Harrison Ladycats softball team won three Southwest Ohio Conference games last week to improve their league record to 6-0 (7-3 overall) and are atop the SWOC standings.

Ross is in second place with just one league loss and the two face off at Ross this Thursday and again next Monday in Harrison.

Last week’s wins were by scores of 9-6 over Talawanda, 6-3 over Wilmington, and 4-1 over Wilmington.

Over the years, the Harrison Wildcats baseball team has never feared any opponent, as evidenced by their wins this spring over Hamilton and Lebanon, a pair of top 10 teams.

But Wildcats coach Shawn Sowders said the best team his Cats have faced thus far may be the Batesville Bulldogs.

Harrison went to Batesville on Saturday and split a doubleheader, winning the opener by a score of 6-3 and losing the nightcap, 2-1.

Harrison senior shot putter Nick Taylor is steadily following the path of several state qualifiers before him.

Last week’s victory in the shot put competition at the Harrison Invitational is just further evidence to that effect.

When Harrison and Elder square off on the baseball diamond at Harrison High School next Thursday, May 1, the game itself won’t be nearly as moving as all the hoopla surrounding it.

Baseball coach Shawn Sowders and his team are making a community service project out of the game to honor local veterans of the Armed Forces.
