  • Cynthiana Sin The’ Shaolin test...

    The Cynthiana Shaolin Sin The’ Karate Club gave advancement test to students eligible for rank advancement. Students test four times a year, once each quarter. The students must demonstrate their knowledge of the Shaolin system by performing kata, weapons, and sparring.

  • Soccer Breds hold off alumni...

    Thursday, Aug. 2, was the annual alumni game for the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team and the alums turned out in large numbers to play.  
    Twenty-two former Thorobreds took the field at various times during the match and gave the good crowd their money’s worth.  
    Due to the heat (and KHSAA regulations) the contest was played in four 20-minute quarters rather than two 40-minute halves to give more rest and water breaks.  

  • Fillies soccer wins final...

    The Harrison County Fillies scored early and often Tuesday evening as they pounded district rival Mason County 7-0 in a final tune up before the regular season. Sophomore Hannah Thomas scored two goals and handed out four assists to lead the Fillies as they cruised past the Lady Royals.  

  • Friday night scrimmage at Grant...

    There were 20 items written on the board that needed to improve after the Friday night Maroon/White battle at Ingles Stadium.  
    Coach Jim Carr and his staff found some positives as well on Friday, but presented the team with a list of needed improvements on Monday.  
    High on the list was center to quarterback exchanges as there were several failures with this technique during the scrimmage.  
    Both quarterbacks, Zach Royce and Robbie Stroub, found the snap difficult to deal with at times Friday.  

  • Golfers play in tournament over...

    The Harrison County High School golf team started the season off with a very aggressive and busy schedule.  
    Last Thursday both the girls and boys played in tournaments, the girls in Mason County, the boys at Old Silo in Montgomery County.
    The Fillies finished fourth of nine teams in the “B” division of the Mason County tournament played at the Maysville Country Club.  
    Led by Sarah Holland’s 49 they totaled a team total of 239 compared to the 189 total by division winner Villa Madonna.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Remembering when I had potential

    I have not always admired athletes who worked hard every day though they, in the end, did not accomplish much.  
    I thought of this today when I read that Colt McCoy had lost the starting quarterback job to Brandon Weeden after what really wasn’t a very long tryout period.  
    McCoy stated that he was the first man at practice and the last one to leave and would continue to work hard as the back up.  
    That is sort of Tim Tebow-like, which in my youth would have made me disdainful to say the least.

  • Cross Country looks to improve...

    Coach Danny Simpson has two state qualifiers returning for the 2012 season and some others returning who have been out for a while, which gives hope for an improved season in 2012.  
    Only Jacob Marsh graduated from last year’s squad and Jacob was injured for the entire year so it is much like the team is back with a few exceptions.  
    Three seniors are on each the Fillies and Thorobreds squads with similar situations facing both squads.

  • Football Hall of Fame honors...

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Football Alumni Association added four more names to the Hall of Fame, recognized a family of supporters and gave two scholarships Saturday evening at the ninth annual banquet held at the high school.
    After Rev. Kenneth Newby offered the blessing, attendees were treated to a meal served by the current football team members.
