  • Harrison County Volleyball wins tournament in Hodgenville

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team is hitting stride as they head into the final three weeks of the regular season.  
    Despite losing in a lackluster performance Tuesday night at Lexington Christian, Coach Bill Faulkner sees a good light at the end of the tunnel.
    “The girls were a little out of sync tonight,” he noted after the loss. “Allison Cordray, our senior setter and team leader, was out with an illness and we really missed her.”  

  • Ten years ago, how we remember

    Sept. 11, 2001 is a day that changed the United States of America forever.  
    It has been interesting how the sports world has reacted to the 10th anniversary this week and the rumors around some of the action taken by the NFL.  
    First, let me promise you that my article will not be an apology to the Arab world for being pro American. In fact, anyone who knows me knows that I fly a flag at my home and don’t care who knows that American is right and if someone doesn’t like how we are there is an exit where they came into the country.  

  • Harrison County fumbles chance for second victory

    The first quarter of the Mason County vs. Harrison County football game at the Athletic Complex Friday was a lesson in how not to play.  
    The first two possessions ended in fumbles and Mason County’s next possession climaxed with a safety for the hometown Thorobreds as Cory Webber tackled the punter in the end zone.  
    After the safety, the Royals’ free kick put the ball on the Mason County 35-yard line and a short run, a holding penalty and two incomplete passes found the Breds punting from the Royals’ 49.

  • Breds lose a couple of close ones in varsity soccer

    In what would have to be fate, the Harrison County Soccer Thorobreds dropped two one-goal losses to George Rogers Clark and Sayre on Thursday and Tuesday nights.
    The GRC loss was a very physical-style game which featured offensive domination by the Thorobreds that resulted in a 15-2 shot on goal advantage but still a loss for the Breds.  
    A mental lapse early gave the Cardinals a lead but right before half Daniel Klapheke tapped in a screaming shot by Kyle Foster to make the game a tie at the intermission.
