    The Harrison County Thorobreds record fell to 3-15 Monday night as they lost a nail biter to Bishop Brossart 61-60 on the Hilltop.  
    The loss wrapped up a busy weekend where the Breds were on the road at Bourbon County and then in Frankfort to play North Oldham on Saturday.
    Friday night saw Harrison County fall behind early, as has been the case in many of the Thorobreds ball games.  

  • Fillies lose to Bourbon and Greenup

    Except for a brief stretch in the fourth quarter at Bourbon County, Friday, the Harrison County Fillies have hit a field goal dry spell.  
    After shooting 20 percent  from the field Friday night in Paris the Fillies followed up with a 21 percent effort Monday in Morehead.  
    For the two games Harrison County, has made 24 of 117 tries from the field.  Needless to say, they have come out on the short end of the two game results.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds ventured to Scott County, Saturday in a schedule change from Sheldon Clark and won two of three matches.  
    Coach Luke Tucker was not pleased with the match that they lost.  
    “Scott County came prepared to wrestle and some of our wrestlers did not,” bemoaned the veteran coach.  “We had boys unprepared and some even missed weight.  We are not good enough to give a less than full effort and win.”

    The AFJROTC Breds Rifle Teams finished first and third in the Marksmanship contest held last Thursday at George Rogers Clark High School.  
    The Harrison County Team 1 made up of Thomas Morris, Ryan Tobin, Travis Chapman and Austin Pickett took first place with a team total of 811.  
    Team Captain Morris shot 224 of a possible 300 to lead the Breds.  His total was only two points away from the “Top Gun” award.  

  • An achievement for many

    Harrison County sophomore Madison Kellione scored her 1,000th point Friday night at Bourbon County in the Fillies 49-41 loss at the hands of the Lady Colonels.  
    While I am sure that all Harrison County fans would have preferred that she met this milestone on the Hilltop, and in a victory, we have to take our achievements as they come.  
    While this is a great accomplishment for Maddie K. and I am sure it won’t be her last, it was a great night for more than just the fiery sophomore.
