  • Harrison County wrestlers second in Region 8, sending 11 to state

    When most teams in any sport finish second in the region, it is a cause for celebration.  
    That may not be so true for the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling squad.  
    After having their sights set on Johnson Central, to finish only three points behind them was disappointing for the Thorobreds.  

  • Bowlers Finish Fourth
  • Good things going on in Harrison County

    I heard the other day that some people consider the Democrat to be filled with negative news so this week I will be all positive.  
    The only question I have for the people who think and say this is have you paid attention to the world lately?  
    The Harrison County Middle School cheerleaders were repeat Bluegrass Conference winners along with winning the Region and finishing third in the state.  
    This competition over the weekend again established this group of girls as a dominant force in the middle school cheer circles.  

  • Larger squad competes Saturday in Mason County indoor track event

    A larger group of Harrison County High School athletes traveled to Mason County Saturday to compete in the indoor track meet.

    Field events were held along with hurdles and running events so the competition was similar to a spring meet.

  • Fillies lose two more close games, finish with Indians on Friday

    The final scores do not represent the closeness or the intensity of play but are losses nevertheless. The Harrison County Fillies fell to a season mark of 8-20 with home losses to Woodford County and East Jessamine last week.
    On Wednesday, the Fillies trailed by seven at the end of the first period and, though they managed to cut into the lead in each quarter, could not catch the Lady Yellowjackets of Woodford County.  
    Senior forward Chelsey Ford led the Woodford County scoring with 21 points and dominated the boards early for 10 rebounds.  

  • Neil Furnish hired as HCHS football coach

    Harrison County High School’s Class of 2000 graduate Neil Furnish was selected last week to become the head football coach at his alma mater.  
    Furnish, 33, has most recently been a member of the Bourbon County High School coaching staff. They have won two regional championships and a regional runner-up in the past three years.  
    Furnish has coached at Bourbon County since 2012 as head freshman coach, pass game coordinator, quarterbacks’ coach and defensive backs’ coach.  

  • Breds split with Mason Co. and Paris, face Montgomery Friday

    After an exciting junior varsity game won in two overtimes, 61-55, by Mason County, the big crowd on the Hilltop was pumped for a tight game between the two varsity squads.  
    The crowd got what they paid for but it took the Thorobreds a quarter to deliver their end of the bargain.  
    Once again, Harrison County got off to a slow start caused largely by eight turnovers and poor shot selection.  
    The visiting Royals jumped out to a 20-to-7 lead after one quarter behind their big men, seniors Dorian Henry and Jake O’Mara.
