  • Fillies on uptick as District approaches

    The Harrison County Fillies are saving their best for last with the 38th District Volleyball Tournament looming on the horizon.

    Harrison County has been on a roll over the past three weeks, suffering only two losses since Sept. 13, both of them to highly regarded area teams. Their only losses in that time period have come to Lexington Catholic and Villa Madonna.

  • Fall Fling this weekend

    With just two weeks left in the volleyball regular season, the Harrison County Fillies are hosting a 12-team tournament this weekend at Harrison County High School and Harrison County Middle School.

  • Breds blast Bourbon, 49-14

    Heading into last Friday’s district opener, Harrison County football coach Aaron Stepp was fearful of one thing. He was afraid that the bigger, stronger Bourbon County Colonels would control the game with their offensive line and strong running game.

    Those fears appeared to be warranted over the game’s first seven minutes.

  • High school sports

    On Saturday the Harrison County High School cross country teams traveled to the Scott High Classic in Northern Kentucky. Harrison County coach Danny Simpson was pleased with his team’s performance, but expects to see some improvement in the near future.

    “Our varsity boys placed ninth in the team competition.  They ran solid races, but overall there wasn’t the improvement we expected,” said Simpson.

  • Breds' one win for the season has Hill puzzled

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team is still stuck on one win for the regular season, which is puzzling to head coach Nick Hill.

    On Tuesday night, the Breds played regional favorite Montgomery County on even terms for nearly three-fourths of the game, before allowing a pair of goals in the last 20 minutes to fall 2-0.

    Last week, coming off their first win of the season over Frankfort, the Breds lacked much fire in dropping a 3-0 decision to Mason County at LeBus Field.

    Huh?

    Chris Hedges, Harrison County High School band director and trumpeter in demand, played his part in last weeks Ryder Cup in Louisville.

    His first activity with the Ryder Cup was to play The Star-Spangled Banner for the Captains Challenge on Wednesday, Sept. 17.

    He also played the National Anthem at a Ryder Cup pep rally in downtown Louisville on Thursday night.

    I had no idea what it would be like, Hedges said. I had been preparing and practicing. Its a hard song to sing and a hard song to play.

  • Vandals deface Rev. Ross Park

    Standing under the shelter at the Rev. Ross Park Tuesday morning, Brian Williams and Steve Moses are at a loss to explain peoples logic.

    Sometime over the weekend, the area around the parks shelter was vandalized. The floor was painted with multiple slogans, a grill was broken off its stand and an electric meter was smashed.

    Its a nice park, its just sad the way people treat it, said Williams, who is on the parks committee.

    Parents dont take care of it the way they used to, added Moses. Nobodys responsible for anything - only the taxpayers.
