Today's Sports

  • Cheerleading experience great...

    I want to cover several different areas in this column and will start with the cheerleader camp held last week that culminated with the little ones getting to cheer at halftime of the Harrison County/Grant County football game.  
    My granddaughter, Cecilia, attended and participated in the camp and I believe was the youngest one there at just barely 4. She had a great time and was following along with the varsity cheerleaders pretty well the best I could tell.

    Volleyball team remains undefeated
    The Harrison County volleyball team rolled to a two-set victory Thursday night over a talented Fleming County squad 25-18 and 25-13. The second set was 17-5 when Coach Bill Faulkner began substituting more freely to gain experience for his younger players.  
    “We came out a little flat in the first set against really good competition,” said Faulkner following the game. “I reminded the team that we had worked too hard to play like this and they turned it around in the second set.”

  • Colts Football
  • Soccer Breds drop 4-0 opener to...

    The night got off to a late start with West Jessamine 30 minutes late for the first game and it never got any better for the Thorobreds as they fell 4-0 to Newport Central Catholic.  
    The first match of the Thorobred Classic was won by West Jessamine, 1-0, over Bourbon County in an affair marred with red and yellow cards throughout.  
    Bourbon County had one player dismissed for intentionally stepping on a West Jessamine player and with 49 seconds left in the game, playing one short caught up with them as they lost 1-0.

  • Fillies Soccer opens with 3-0...

    The youthful Harrison County Fillies started the new season Monday night with a hard-fought 3-0 loss to northern Kentucky power house Dixie Heights.  
    The 5A Lady Colonels were too powerful for the Fillies to hold out of the net.  
    The Fillies played well overall, but youth and inexperience at many positions led to their eventual downfall.  

  • Football Breds fall in final...

    Franklin County showed why it is the eighth rated team in 5A football on Friday night as they scored six times in the scrimmage in Frankfort against the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The Thorobreds had the ball first and ran some running plays with good results before changing gears and working on the passing game.  
    Using the scrimmage to find areas that needed work was the plan for the Thorobreds, and Coach Mark Carroll was satisfied that they have things to work on before the season starts on Saturday.  

  • HCHS golfers pick up win at...

    The Harrison County Thorobred golfers got into the win column for the first time this year at Mason County last Wednesday as they edged the Royals 167 to 171.  
    Shalyn Barnes was the medalist for the Breds with a 39 followed by Anthony Shirley with a 41, Stephen Lemons, 43 and Zach Schneider, 44.
    The Fillies dropped their match 163 to 182.  
    Seventh grader Sara Holland led the Fillies with a 54, Katelin Martin with 60 and Katherine Chumley 68 rounded out the scoring.  
    Mason County’s Jordan Fordge was the medalist with a 47.

  • Volleyball off to a 3-0 start...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team began the 2011 season like Coach Bill Faulkner hoped they would by sweeping to three straight wins.  
    The Fillies traveled to Montgomery County (1-2) on Thursday and defeated the Indians 2-0, (25-14, 25-13) and dominated play in most aspects of the game.  
    The junior varsity dropped its opener in two straight 2-0.  The freshman squad won in its first outing by taking two of three games.  

  • Let’s have a parade and a pageant

    Finally we have the right attitude for the beginning of football season.  
    Anticipating the beginning of football is much like waiting for Christmas presents or your wedding day or in my case something to eat that doesn’t say “diet” this or that.  
    The opening of football is one of the best times of the year. No more waiting for the sound of the cheerleaders and the band. No more waiting for the whistle to start the kickoff.  The time is here.
