  • Thorobreds drop close game to Brossart Tuesday

    The Harrison County basketball Breds lost Tuesday on the Hilltop to the tough Bishop Brossart Mustangs 56-50.  
    The Breds led throughout most of the first quarter when they may have played their best basketball of the season.  They took as much as a seven point lead as they limited themselves to only two turnovers for the period and shot 50 percent from the field.  

  • Fillies lose at Clark County Monday, defeat East Jessamine 73-62

    Monday night the Harrison County Fillies met probably the best team in the 10th Region and came away with a 60-41 loss against the powerhouse Clark County Lady Cards.  
    The game was tied early at two, but the Lady Cards scored the next 16 straight and took a 20-3 first quarter lead.  
    The Fillies continued to battle, but the home standing Lady Cards were just too powerful and deep at every position.

  • Pre-game ceremonies: The great, the good and the ugly

    In the past week I have witnessed the best pre-game ceremony ever, a touching and very appropriate one and one that I would describe as pitiful, disrespectful and just plain uncalled for.
    Being a little under the weather on Saturday, I stayed home, in the house all day except for going out to pick up the paper on the driveway.  
    If there would have been someone to do that I wouldn’t have done that either. I do not get sick often and therefore do not operate well when I do.

  • Fillies, Breds lose at Pendleton Co. on Cancer Awareness Night

    It was all Pendleton County Friday night as they retired a jersey, honored a teacher/ administrator and won two ball games over rival Harrison County in the girl/boy doubleheader.  
    The Cancer Awareness Night games also featured a presentation by former UK player Mark Krebs about his book covering the struggles of his family with his mother’s cancer diagnosis and eventual death.  
    The Fillies and Lady Cats opened the evening with a game that, after a couple of early lead changes, was all Lady Cats.
