  • Thorobreds record evens at 7-7 with 2 losses last week

    The Harrison County Thorobreds dropped the championship game of the Gateway Classic to Lincoln County, 82-51, in an “ugly” effort Monday night.  
    On Saturday, Cooper High School was the scene of a 72-60 loss, which evened the season record at 7-7.
    The Lincoln County game saw the Patriots score the first 15 points and never look back as they completely dominated play.  
    The score at the end of the first period was 26-4 as the Breds were cold from the field and Lincoln County was red hot.

    The Fillies’ record now stands at 4-11 following Monday night’s game. Their next game is a Thursday night battle with Augusta on the Hilltop.
    Friday’s game was never a contest as the Fillies took a 14-6 lead by the end of the first period.  
    The second quarter saw St. Patrick held to only three points while the Fillies ran out to a 37-9 lead.

    The seventh grade record is now 0-13.

  • Wrestlers continue tough schedule with mixed results

    The Harrison County High School wrestling team continues to battle a lack of numbers as it competes in some of the more prestigious meets across Kentucky.  
    Injuries and members quitting have caused difficulties in team scoring as the Breds are unable to compete in each weight class.  
    The same problem that plagued football has also been an issue for the wrestlers with many of the same young men that left football doing the same with the wrestling team.

  • A disappointing ending

    Before I go into the football playoffs in the NFL I want to congratulate Trenton Thompson for setting the single game record for points scored for Harrison County High School.  
    Thompson’s 43 points against Cooper Saturday night broke the record of 42 held jointly by Keller Works and Jerry Fogle.

    The Bengals and Steelers both left the playoff race rather unceremoniously over the weekend.
