    The Harrison County Fillies played the third-rated Campbell County Lady Camels close for a little more than a quarter, before falling, 70-43 Monday, in Alexandria.
    The constant defensive pressure from the Campbell County defense was too much for the Fillies as they committed 24 turnovers on the night.  23 of those miscues came in the first three quarters before Campbell County took their starters out for the final eight minutes.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds basketball teams pulled off a three game sweep of Bracken County Tuesday night.  The freshman team won 43-35, the junior varsity held on for a 46-43 win and the varsity rolled past the Polar Bears 71-42.
    Junior guard Quenton Turley led the way for the Thorobreds who took an early lead and incrementally stretched it to the final 29 point margin.  Turley had a career high 28 points to spark the Breds. 

  • Tough time for writing

    The past few weeks each year are always a hard time for me to write an article, but it has been especially hard this year.
    My NFL boycott has robbed me of my Sunday afternoon past time and I will not write about pro games that I have not seen. Too much opinion versus facts in others writings and musings about games.
    There are few people that just tell it like it is and do not add personal prejudices into their dialogue. The NFL is not the only distraction this year during the time right after Christmas.

    The weather finally allowed the Powell County Lady Pirates to make it to the Monticello Heights Gym on the Hilltop Wednesday to face the Harrison County Fillies. 
    The game was scheduled for Monday but the two teams and the weather could not get together until Wednesday evening following the Senior Night activities for the Harrison County wrestling team.

  • The art of keeping score

    For the past 45 years, Larry White has kept score for the Harrison County Thorobreds.  He began with road games in 1972 and continues today to be the scorekeeper for the Harrison County boys’ team.  
    He missed 41 games during that time with a heart attack among the legitimate reasons to miss.  
    Larry keeps the book the way the book is supposed to be kept.
