  • Soccer Breds roll past Simon Kenton, lose at home to Montgomery

    Brock Jenkins and Logan Wiley scored second-half goals as the Harrison County Thorobreds shook off the malaise of Saturday to get past Simon Kenton, 2-0, on the Pioneers’ home field.
    “I usually do not schedule Saturday games,” noted Coach Nick Hill. “The players are out of their routine and generally start slow and this was no exception.”  
    Hill said he felt like his team could have well been down by a couple of goals at the half instead of the 0-0 score.  

  • Some improvement in loss at Mason County Friday for Thorobreds

    Despite the 49-7 defeat at the hands of the Mason County Royals (4-0) Friday night, some light could be seen at the end of the tunnel for Harrison County’s football Thorobreds.
    After falling behind 21-0 in the first period, the Breds played much more competitively for the rest of the game — especially in the second half.
    Mason County’s Rico Hill had a career night. The senior running back scored four times in the first half on running plays for the veteran Mason County line up.  

  • Flinging our cares away

    When we moved to Florida from California 23 years ago, we did so with only the things we could fit into two vehicles.
    That meant getting rid of 15 years’ worth of possessions to start over, which was both sad and exciting.
    I especially hated parting with the coffee table my husband had accidentally autographed.
    He tends to write hard and had been signing checks. After that, at a certain angle you could see a half-dozen “Barry Kennedy” indentations in the table top.

  • Fillies volleyball defeats Lady Polar Bears, falls to George Rogers Clark

  • Fillies lose battle with Camels, defeat Calvary Christian Monday night

    “Though the score (3-0) may not show it the girls had their best and most organized defensive effort of the season, explained Coach Kevin Gaunce. Two balls for each team bounce a little differently and it’s a completely different outcome.”

  • Breds win second junior varsity game 20-0 over Rowan County

    Dalton Moore, Malik Powell, and Logan Kellione each scored a touchdown and Tyler Price added an extra point as the Harrison County junior varsity defeated Rowan County 20-0 in Ingles Stadium Monday.
    Former Harrison County coach Ray Graham brought his junior varsity the long distance to play the Thorobreds on this rainy Monday night.  
    The first quarter was scoreless but Harrison County got on the scoreboard with just under six minutes to play in the second quarter on Moore’s short run up the middle for the score.

  • Breds golfers finish eighth in a 20-team Montgomery tourney

    The Harrison County Thorobreds golf team played in a 20-team tournament Saturday in Mt. Sterling finishing eighth in the large field.  
    “The finish was very good,” noted Coach Jason Crisp.  “Unfortunately, three of the teams that beat us are in our region.”  
    Jackson County was the overall winner shooting just a few strokes better than runner up Mason County.  
    George Rogers Clark was third followed by Bourbon County, Grant County, Montgomery County and the Thorobreds.  

  • Looking forward to it

    I remember an old friend of my dad. His name was Bill. I miss him.
    Years ago when I would visit my dad, the three of us would go to breakfast together. My dad and he would talk about the years that they worked together in air traffic control and the world war that they both served in.
    Bill had such a great attitude. He told me about how he and a German woman forgave each other.
    Bill met this woman who had a strong foreign accent. She told him that she was German. He then said, “You’ll have to forgive me.” She said, “Why?”
