    The Harrison County High School wrestling team made quick work of the Bourbon County Colonels on Jan. 31 in Paris.  The Breds won the dual match 69-8.  
    Some highlights of the win were Tayvone Williams picking up a varsity win at 120 lbs.  Tyler and Brent Hudgins continue to dominate their weight classes and Bubba Jackson won the heavyweight match.

    The Harrison County Fillies played three times this past week and won by big margins in all three.  The Wednesday night encounter at Madison Central was the closest game with the Fillies winning, 60-47.
    Harrison County started a little slowly Wednesday as they showed a little nervousness both in their shooting and ball handling.  The Fillies trailed by a 13-10 score after one quarter behind four of 12 shooting which, fortunately, included two three-pointers.

    The Harrison County archery team finished highly in the rankings in the Harrison County Spring Fling held Saturday at the Harrison County Middle School.   
    The HCMS team scored the highest with a first and third in the girl’s competition and a second and fourth in the boy’s.  

  • Credit where credit is due

    The entry to Cynthiana needs some work, both on north and south 27 and on 62.  
    How many state championships has Harrison County High School won? More than the number of famous writers and directors that have attended school in Harrison County.  
    I have no problem with the signs recognizing them. We should do that. We need to properly recognize the state baseball champions.
    We have the signs or at least we used to have one set of signs.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds basketball woes continue as they dropped three more games, two very winnable contests and one to third-ranked Madison Central.
    Thursday’s Madison Central contest on the Hilltop was never a game.  The powerhouse Indians led 29-7 after one quarter and were never threatened.  The final score of 80-35 was an accurate portrayal of the game.

    Coach Neil Furnish and two of his staff, Josh Ashbrook and Van Isaac, held the annual awards ceremony for the Thorobreds football team Sunday in the Harrison County High School auditorium.  
    Each class was introduced beginning with the large freshman class and ending with the senior class of only five players.  
    The seniors were last so Furnish could be more detailed about their accomplishments during their career with the football team.
