  • Christmas time again

    Christmas is not my favorite time of the year, not because I don’t believe that it is Christ’s birthday, but for other reasons.  
    The commercialization of Christmas and the ridiculous buzz about not saying Merry Christmas because it may offend someone, makes me tired.  
    Personally, I think if one is so easily offended they need to join “Bubble Boy” somewhere in isolation.  
    However, I do like the sports on Christmas and during the Christmas holiday.

  • Harrison County wrestlers win...

    Injuries and illness left the Harrison County Thorobreds short handed and weakened Saturday as they wrestled in the Rumble in the Hive.  
    The premier event, which is hosted by Louisville Central, featured some good teams from Jefferson and surrounding counties.  
    The Thorobreds faced powerful Meade County and came away with a 13-to-66 defeat.  
    In this dual match, the Breds had to forfeit in five weight classes, some that when everyone is healthy are the stronger weights for Harrison County.

    Eighth grade Colts improve record
    The Harrison County Middle School Colts opened the game with a couple of different presses and raced out to a 23-0 lead as they defeated Elkhorn, 54-33, Thursday on the Hilltop.  
    “Everyone contributed tonight in some way,” praised Coach Glenn Lonaker. “We got scoring from 10 of the 13 players in the ball game.”  
    Lonaker still reminded the team that they still have some things to work on such as blocking out and moving the ball down the floor but overall he was pleased.

  • Red hot Camels shoot past Breds...

    The team that many think is the team to beat in the 10th Region is defending champion Campbell County.  
    Friday night did nothing to change anyone’s thinking as the Camels beat Harrison County 85-58 in Mason County.  
    The opening game of the Mike Murphy Classic for the Breds saw the Campbell County team come out of the locker room on fire from the field shooting 62.5 percent in the first quarter.  

  • Lady Rebels smother listless...

    Boone County Lady Rebels’ coach, Nell Fookes, is in her 30th year as the mentor.  
    During those 30 years, her teams have been known for solid, error-free offense and a tight defense.  
    The 2014-15 edition, despite her claims to the contrary, appears to be out of the same mold.  
    On Friday night on the Hilltop, the Lady Rebels got off to a quick start taking an 8-0 lead.  
    The Fillies battled back to cut the lead to 10-6 at the end of the period but the die was set for the game.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Breds lose two close games, play...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds saw their record fall to 4-3 for the year as they lost two games last weekend.  Top-10-rated Holmes edged the Breds on Friday, 65-57, and undefeated Augusta shot their way past the Thorobreds Saturday, 72-64.
    On Friday night, the Breds started quickly, but Holmes used a rebounding edge to take a 19-14 lead by the end of the first quarter.  
    The Thorobreds were playing without forward Trenton Thompson, who is averaging 28 points per game, and more crucially in this contest almost six rebounds a game.  

  • Fillies snap skid with 68-45...

    Monday night was a good night to be a Fillie on the Hilltop as the Harrison County Fillies defeated Paris 68-45 to snap a four-game losing streak.  
    On top of the varsity victory, the junior varsity, led by Emma Darnell’s 13 points, won their first game of the season. Winning 32-26 over the Paris junior varsity.  
    The junior varsity had dropped three games last week 21-13 to Ryle; 38-14 to Nicholas County; and 26-16 to Dixie Heights.
