  • Young Fillies lose three in...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued their early season struggles on Friday and Saturday as they dropped games to Shelby Valley, Dixie Heights and Middletown, Ohio.
    Shelby Valley brought an 8-1 record into the tournament being regarded by most as the best team in the 15th Region.  
    They did nothing to make anyone think differently as they used the strength of four three pointers in the first quarter to sprint out to a 20-5 lead and were never threatened in the 70-38 win.  

  • New Year’s resolutions

    When you get to be my age there have been many chances to make great and meaningful changes/improvements at the beginning of the year.  
    I never have been able to resolve to lose weight, quit swearing etc., so this year all of my resolutions are going to be sports related.
    The first one would be easy for some people but has always been hard for me.  
    That will be to continue to follow a sport after “my team” is eliminated.  

  • Thorobred wrestlers battle teams...

    The youthful Harrison County wrestling team spent the pre-Christmas weekend wrestling against teams from Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia in a tournament held near Knoxville.  
    The Breds finished with one victory and four losses as they were matched against veteran teams from the tri-state area.  
    The Thorobreds lost to two teams where they were within one match of turning the defeat into a team victory.  Both Alcoa and Dobyns Bennett, Tenn., edged Harrison County, Alcoa by 40-36 and Dobyns Bennett by 47-41.  

  • Breds split four, finish 6th at...

    Poor free throw shooting in the fourth quarter Sunday sent the Harrison County Thorobreds down to a 65-59 defeat to Rowan County and sixth place in the Lake Cumberland Holiday Hoops Classic.  
    The Breds had previously defeated Louisville Southern, 67-41, and Louisville Manual, 65-64, while losing to Somerset, 66-48, in the four day tournament.  
    The Classic began on Thursday night with the game against the Trojans of Louisville Southern.  

  • Fillies win first victory at...

    Coach Kim Furnish said after Wednesday’s game that she had finally got the demon off her back.  
    Maybe it was a Lady Demon because Furnish and her Harrison County Fillies picked up their first win of the season over the Lady Demons of Williamstown, 70-56, Wednesday.  
    The win improved the Fillies to 1-6 and dropped the freshman-laden Lady Demons to 3-6 for the season.

  • Thorobreds split games in Stop...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played some of their better basketball of the young season as they lost a tight game on Friday to Covington Holmes and then won a cliff hanger on Saturday with Russell.
    Friday saw the Breds lose to the host school, Holmes, 82-73, after a hard-fought game that saw Harrison County give one of the state’s top teams all they wanted for the contest.  
    The Breds took an early lead in the game and led late into the first period before Holmes went on an 11-point run to take a 16-10 lead to a 16-21 deficit.  

  • Let’s have a Happy New Year and...

    When the Fillies traveled to Williamstown last Wednesday and won their first game of the year, I was reminded of what a good home court advantage can do for a high school team.  
    While it is true that the Lady Demons lost this home game, what little crowd that was in attendance supporting them made its presence known.
    When the Fillies went to the locker room for final instructions before the game, the Williamstown band practiced a 30-second song and a one minute ditty while the teams were in the locker room.
