  • Thorobreds tackling the defense...

    Coach Mark Carroll said he feels like his team was tired by the end of many games last year and believes the cause of this was too many people playing too many plays.  
    “Our goal is to have 21 people starting on defense and offense and only a couple going both ways to help us stay fresher,” said Carroll.  “Nick Slucher and Matt Carter are two of the players who will rotate both ways with the rest periods on offense where we are deeper.”  

  • Breds expected to be one of top...

    Nick Hill welcomes back a savvy group of veterans for his fifth year as head coach of the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team.  
    Graduated from last year’s runner up team in the district are D. A. Wiglesworth, Austin Lail, Johnson Garrison and Eric Sanders.
    Each of these players had some particular skills that will have to be replaced by this year’s team as well as the quartet leadership and ruggedness.  
    The 14-5-2 Thorobreds from 2010 also finished third in the region and were very competitive in each match on the schedule.

  • How serious do we take ourselves...

    Patti and I went to Bardstown last weekend to see Amber Philpott and her family.  
    Well, actually we went to see the Wizard of Oz and Amber, Steve, Theresa and Gary were there, but I wanted to throw a famous name into my article;  a famous name other than the Wizard of Oz that is.  
    Imagine my surprise when Ozzie Smith wasn’t there at all and there was a play about a little girl from Kansas who was following a yellow brick road and there weren’t any Jayhawks or ball players of any kind.  

  • Harrison Cheerleaders have high...

    Jessica Reynolds has taken over the Harrison County cheer leading reins from DeDe Shirley and doesn’t expect to miss a beat.  
    “We have six great seniors back along with a talented group of juniors and sophomores,” she noted.  “Add seven exceptional freshmen and we have more than made up for our losses from last year.”  
    Not that Reynolds is taking the losses lightly.  Julie Henson and Niki Whalen are gone from last year’s team having graduated in the spring.
