  • Tucker named Harrison Co. High...

    Gene Bartow, Joe B. Hall and Mike Davis have nothing on Luke Tucker. Each of them were chosen to follow a legend in coaching when they assumed their respective jobs at UCLA, Kentucky, Indiana and Harrison County.  
    Tucker was named this week to succeed Russ Riegel as head coach of the Harrison County Wrestling Thorobreds. No one is more appreciative of his position than Tucker.  

  • Football winding down, it’s a...

    At the end of this week, high school football will wrap up another season and the only local team left is Jim McKee’s Scott County Cardinals, who play the No. 1 team in not only our state, but the nation; the Trinity Shamrocks.  
    Joining Scott County in the playoffs are two other teams from Harrison County’s tough schedule this year.  The Belfry Pirates and the Ft. Thomas Highlands Bluebirds are also playing on Saturday in Bowling Green.  

  • Fillies inexperience shows in...

    “Conner played 16 girls and was very athletic,” bemoaned Fillies Coach Kim Furnish. “We found out just how much work we have yet to do.”  
    Furnish said this after the Harrison County Fillies were defeated 80-51 by the Lady Cougars of Conner in the final scrimmage of the year Saturday afternoon. The scrimmage, which was played at Ft. Thomas Highlands, was 22-minute halves with a regular clock, which simulated as close to a regular season game as a scrimmage is allowed.  

  • Breds scrimmage Tuesday and...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds basketball team has the scrimmages behind them now as they wait in anticipation of Monday night’s trip to Simon Kenton.
    Tuesday the Breds traveled to Somerset to play the Pulaski County Southwest team who played in the 12th Region championship game last year.  
    The Warriors return all but two from that team plus have a talented freshman and sophomore group.  

  • HCMS football recap

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts 7th and 8th grade teams had very successful seasons in 2011.
    The 7th grade team finished the regular season with a record of 7-1 and placed second in the Bluegrass Conference. They played Scott County in a playoff game.  
    The 8th grade team had a 6-2 record and finished in a 3-way tie for second place in the conference. However, the tiebreaker system was not in their favor which prevented them from making the playoffs.

  • Following in her family’s...

    “I always knew I wanted to coach, began Camryn Whitaker,” It seemed like the natural thing to do.”  
    The former HCHS all-stater is in her first year as assistant coach to three-time Sun Belt Conference coach of the year Mary Taylor Cowles at Western Kentucky after tenures at Austin Peay and Missouri State University.

  • Seasons all run together...

    There is so much going on it is hard to focus, especially for an old guy like me.  
    Baseball just ended (did I mention that the Cardinals won and I told you so),  high school football has two more weeks, college football is nearing the end of the regular season, pro football is more than half done with its season and here comes basketball.  

  • Wrestlers open season with...

    The 2011-12 Harrison County wrestling season kicked off Saturday with both the high school and middle school wrestlers competing in scrimmages.  
    The high school squad traveled to Lexington for an afternoon of instruction and competition at Lafayette High School.  Coaches from the participating teams gave instruction in the various techniques of the sport before the teams squared off in individual battles.
