  • Breds soccer ties Grant Co.,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are winless to date but not because they are not putting out an effort. 

     The Breds played undefeated Grant County to a 0-0 tie on August 30 in Grant County despite having several good shots on goal.  

    The game was very physical with the Thorobreds showing great restraint so as to not retaliate on some hits.  

  • Fillies win three more matches,...

    The Harrison County Fillies continue to play some really good volleyball as they defeated Fleming County Tuesday Aug. 30, Augusta last Thursday and Mason County Tuesday night.

    In Fleming County the Panthers put up a battle losing in three sets 25-15, 25-20 and 25-17.  

  • All is not lost

    I believe that only in Kentucky is one football loss the end of all hope for a winning season. That doesn’t include all teams but only the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Harrison County lost two games early to teams that if we played again we would more than likely beat and all was not lost on the Hilltop.  

    The Wildcats lost a game Saturday night that many felt was in the win column before the game and certainly by half time many were very confident.

  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors:...

    As the carefree days of summer give way to the first days of September, it’s finally starting to feel like fall in Kentucky.

    A cold front promised to break the stranglehold of heat and humidity just as wingshooters returned to dove fields for the traditional Sept. 1 season opener.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds golfers played in a 19-team tournament on Saturday at Laurel Oaks in Mason County.  

    The Breds, led by Peyton Browning’s 76 and Jake Jones’ 77, finished sixth in the talent-laden event.  Reese Asher with 84 and Kody Barrett with 86 rounded out the Breds’ scoring for a team total of 323.  Anthony Vascotto played and shot a 92.

    The Harrison County volleyball teams continue to pile up wins at each level of play.  

    Thursday at Mason County, the freshman won in straight sets, 21-16 and 21-14.  

    The junior varsity eased past the Royals’ junior varsity, 21-17 and 21-13. 

    The varsity team improved to 8-1 with a straight set win over the Royals, 25-13 and 25-6.    

  • What should go unreported

    There are hundreds if not thousands of plays made in sports in any given week and it is up to the media (the national media for the most part) to report what they feel news worthy.  

    I say the national media because local media whether it is sports or news have a specific focus in reporting.

    There are lots of examples of good things to report that do not get reported nationally and also many not-so-good things that are written about until one wants to scream ‘enough already.’
