  • Colts lose opening conference tournament game to Georgetown

    Georgetown Middle School used a 10-point fourth-quarter advantage to break a tie and win the opening game of the Bluegrass Conference tournament 56-46 over the Harrison County Colts.  
    The game was tight through out as Georgetown held only a three-point lead with about three minutes to play.  
    The visiting team made a four-point play out of a technical foul and took a seven-point lead which was too much for the Colts to overcome.  

  • Cynthiana needs growth, but a tax is not the answer

    By Scott Grannis,
    Guest Editorial
    Throughout my life I recall my father saying “you can’t fight City Hall.”
    But when push came to shove, he did. I believe, as I think he did, not only that you can, but as a conscientious citizen, you must.

  • Philpott leads Fillies to consecutive wins over Williamstown and Augusta

    Harrison County junior Madison Philpott changed her jersey number from 20 to 23 and the Fillies won two straight games for the second time this season.
    On Monday, the Fillies took an early lead and went on to defeat Williamstown (12-9) by a 50-42 score.  
    Philpott scored eight of Harrison County’s first 12 points as she played with confidence that she hadn’t shown this season.  
    Senior Kelsey Roberts, who started in place of Chelsea Ingram who missed the game with an illness, came up big in the first half as well.  

  • Breds coming together, win at Fleming and Campbell counties

    The Harrison County Thorobreds coupled the win at Pendleton County Friday with road wins at Fleming County on Saturday and Campbell County on Tuesday. The pair of wins gives the Thorobreds a 12-11 season record.  
    On Saturday the Breds came out a little flat after the win at Falmouth on Friday.  
    Harrison County took some questionable shots in the first period, which resulted in three-for-12 shooting for the period.  
    Meanwhile, Fleming County was making seven of 11 to take a 16-10 lead at the end of the stanza.
