    Five seniors celebrated a big win on Senior Night Monday but it wasn’t easy.  
    Harrison County High School Fillies Soccer players, Amelia Bolin, Marie Bowen, Kayla Ford, Taylor Landrum and Mary Levi, were honored before the match and following the varsity match.  
    Landrum, who has been out all year with a knee injury, started the match and after she made one kick and Western Hills played it out of bounds, she went back to the bench.

    Peyton Wiglesworth was the Homecoming Queen for 2015 and Preston Ishmael was the Homecoming King.  
    The royal duo got to see a defensive turn around for their football team in the Thorobreds’ 25-14 win over Holmes Friday night.  
    Teams that play Harrison County usually plan a special defensive effort to contain senior wide receiver Jovon Williams, but the Bulldogs couldn’t plan for what Williams was going to do Friday night.

    “We picked a bad time to have a bad day,” bemoaned Coach Jason Crisp after the Thorobreds golf team finished sixth of 15 teams in the Region Golf Tournament. “We did not play very well today though I thought that we had a good year overall.”
    Mason County won the tournament with a team total of 309 followed by four teams that the Breds have beaten regularly, Bourbon County, Grant County, Highlands and Bishop Brossart.

    Last Wednesday evening, the Harrison County Fillies soccer team traveled to Frankfort to face the 9-6 Franklin County Lady Flyers.  The Lady Flyers are most likely the best 9-6 team in Kentucky playing what has to be one of the toughest schedules in the Commonwealth.  
    The Fillies gave the home girls all they wanted in the opening half using a patient offense which allowed for some good looks at the goal.

    Soccer Senior Night
    changed to Friday
    The Harrison County High School soccer team’s Senior Night has been changed to Friday, Oct. 2, to accommodate the opponent, Calvary Christian. This will also be Free Youth Night for any youth soccer league player who comes dressed in his/her jersey.
    One of the Calvary Christian player’s mother passed away on Tuesday and the visitation and ceremony is Thursday night. This was the only alternative date that would allow the match to be played with the Cougars.

  • How much is too much

    Coach Larry Kendall sent me an email the other day to let me know about the change in the basketball schedule in regards to the game with Collins in February.  
    It seems that the Thorobreds are going to play this game in Banker’s Life Arena in Indianapolis instead of on the Hilltop.  
    How about that for a change in destination?  
    What a great opportunity for the young men on the team, the coaches and the cheerleaders to get to play, coach and cheer on a professional floor.  
    What is the catch you might be thinking?
