  • Breds second to Bourbon Co. in Rumble Saturday

    Coach Luke Tucker’s Harrison County wrestling team overcame some bad luck on Saturday to finish second thanks to some gritty performances by some young, up-and-coming wrestlers.  
    The bad luck was when freshman Nathan Lopez suffered a concussion in the semi’s of the 120 lb weight class and could not continue.  
    Lopez was a stalwart in the eighth grade last year and figured to score points in the meet on Saturday.  
    That was the bad news though for the Breds.  

  • Where are our priorities

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are off to a great start after the first two games, which is when this was written and that is wonderful.  They are playing an exciting brand of basketball, which is fun to watch and people should go support them.  
    But that is not what this article is about.  
    The University of Kentucky hired a new coach with a football family name, Mark Stoops, and that too is great.  Probably a good hire, at least one with a little imagination, but that is not what this article is about either.

  • Breds start fast, whip St. Patrick and St. Henry

    The Larry Kendall era started with a bang last Wednesday night in Maysville and continued Friday night on the Hilltop with two big wins for the Thorobreds.  
    The Breds started a little slow on Wednesday night as the size of the gym and the excitement of the new season caused some missed shots and turnovers.  
    The St. Patrick’s squad who was playing for the second time in 2012-13, having beaten Paris on Tuesday, was a little more relaxed.  
    The score was tied at 11 each at the end of the first quarter.

  • Fillies drop opener as Cougars take advantage of youthful errors

    After losing a 15-point lead in the fourth period and losing 59-56 to Calvary Christian, Fillies Coach Kim Furnish was not happy.  
    “We had veteran players turn the ball over,” she lamented. “We need a guard who can take over a game, not react to the pressure like an inexperienced player.”
