    The other participants along with Harrison County,  West Jessamine and Boyle County were Montgomery County and East Jessamine.

  • Christmas gifts for NFL teams

    After a Sunday afternoon of shopping with my four grandsons I am really in the Christmas spirit. So much so that for the next two weeks I will be making Christmas wishes for the NFL and College football and basketball teams.
    Many teams are in need of a healthy quarterback while a few have had some good play from back ups most have not which makes the wish list quarterback heavy.
    Strangely enough one of the injured quarterbacks whose back up played the best was Chicago’s Jay Cutler who hails from Santa Claus, Ind.

  • Injury leads to 7th place for cheerleaders in state competition

    For the first time the state cheerleading competition was held at the Alltech Center at the Kentucky Horse Park.
    The Harrison County cheerleaders competed in the small division and had things pretty much lining up for them as they prepared for their turn on the mat.  
    They had a great warm up and were prepared to take advantage of the fact that most teams that had already performed had fallen, leaving the door wide open for another Harrison County win.
    Coach Jessica Reynolds was excited as she watched the performance unfold.

  • Fillies roll past Williamstown, drop first game at Dixie

    Harrison County’ Fillies took what was a 10-point halftime lead to an easy 25-point (60-35) win Wednesday night over the Williamstown Lady Demons in their only home game of the season to date.
    The Fillies rolled out to a 13-4 advantage early before Williamstown changed to a 1-2-2 zone, which caused the Harrison County girls to become tentative.
