  • The weather causes many problems

    Before I get into the article, I want to catch up on something I missed last week.  
    The eighth grade Colts did a fine job in the KBA state championships finishing in the Sweet Sixteen only a basket away from the Elite Eight.  
    Coach Glenn Lonaker’s charges beat teams from around the state and fell short by the one basket to the best team in Lexington.  
    The Colts finished 13th in the final state rankings which was higher than anyone in the Bluegrass Conference except for Scott County who was state champions.  

  • Harrison County Fillies tie for...

    On Feb 13, the Harrison County Fillies competed in the state bowling tournament finishing in a tie for third place.
    “The girls were ready to bowl,” said HCHS bowling head coach Petey Reynolds. “It was the most I have ever seen them ready at any competition.”
    The Fillies bowled one game of qualifying, consisting of two 4-women teams.
    The score wasn’t as good as the coaching staff had hoped but they ended up shooting a 961.

  • HCMS eighth grade Colts finish...

    Only a shot that rimmed in and out kept the Harrison County Colts from advancing to the Elite Eight in the KBA Middle School State Tournament.  
    The tournament, which was held in Lexington, saw the Colts advance into the Sweet 16 with wins in two pool play games and two tournament victories.  
    Harrison County won pool play games over E.J. Hayes of Lexington, 50-39, and South Laurel, 44-42, to advance into the tournament.  

  • Harrison County wrestlers second...

    When most teams in any sport finish second in the region, it is a cause for celebration.  
    That may not be so true for the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling squad.  
    After having their sights set on Johnson Central, to finish only three points behind them was disappointing for the Thorobreds.  

  • Bowlers Finish Fourth
  • Good things going on in Harrison...

    I heard the other day that some people consider the Democrat to be filled with negative news so this week I will be all positive.  
    The only question I have for the people who think and say this is have you paid attention to the world lately?  
    The Harrison County Middle School cheerleaders were repeat Bluegrass Conference winners along with winning the Region and finishing third in the state.  
    This competition over the weekend again established this group of girls as a dominant force in the middle school cheer circles.  

  • Larger squad competes Saturday...

    A larger group of Harrison County High School athletes traveled to Mason County Saturday to compete in the indoor track meet.  
    The meet featured nine girls’ teams and 10 boys’ so it was a good test for the athletes.  
    Field events were held along with hurdles and running events so the competition was similar to a spring meet.
