    Rumbles, to some, means a battle when two groups or more come together in an all out war.  It is usually not one-sided.  
    The Rumble on the Hilltop, Saturday, had 18 participants but one team, the Harrison County Thorobreds, was the clear cut winner from the start while the remaining 17 rumbled for second place and lower.  

  • Outlaws U9
  • College football’s top four

    As much as I like controversial situations I don’t believe that I would want to be on the committee that decides the top four teams in the final college football poll.
    There is potential for several teams with legitimate claims to one of the spots to be left out while one of maybe less talent gets into the final four.
    It will be easy to eliminate some teams who before this past weekend had hopes to be in the final four.  
    Notre Dame may have been the highest rated team that laid an egg Saturday. The Fighting Irish are out of it.

     The Harrison County wrestling team will open the 2017-18 season with the annual Rumble on the Hilltop this Saturday morning, beginning with weigh-ins at 9 a.m.  
    This is an individual bracketed tournament with every effort to separate returning state participants to assure top notch wrestling in the semi-finals and finals.

    The Harrison County Fillies with three players in double figure scoring and two with double figure rebounds rolled past Tates Creek Monday night in Lexington, 65-32. 
    The Fillies jumped out to a 19-9 first quarter lead as junior Madison Kellione scored 11 of her game high 23 in the opening stanza.  Both teams showed some first game jitters with 15 turnovers in the first period with the Lady Commodores committing nine of the miscues.

    Lexington Christian Academy’s team was highly thought of going into last night’s season opener on the Hilltop against the Harrison County Thorobreds.  The Eagles of Region Eleven did nothing to change that opinion as they defeated the Breds,  71-51.
    It wasn’t easy for three quarters as the Breds overcame their rebounding deficit and height disadvantage to stay within 10 points until late in the third period.

    Northern Kentucky University is very much in the minds of Harrison County sports fans these days.  
    Christian Carey just wrapped up an outstanding soccer career at the school.  Shelby Roberts is bowling for the NKU bowling team and of course, Camryn Whitaker continues to be the mastermind behind the Lady Norse basketball team as she coaches them through the perils of Division One basketball.
