  • Back from Ireland and the...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The trip to Ireland had many good features including a visit to the Guinness Storehouse where a revolving bar gives visitors a bird’s eye view of all of Dublin.  
    In fact, in the first 36 hours of our visit I had made it to Guinness and the Jameson Distillery, which I imagined would be the highlights of the trip. I was wrong.  
    The people on the tour and the inhabitants of Ireland made the trip worthwhile.  That is saying something since we were on airplanes for more than 17 hours, which is not fun.  

  • Volleyball ends season with...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team dropped a two-set match to Bishop Brossart last Tuesday to end a very successful season in the opening round of the regional tournament.  
    The district champion Fillies lost to Brossart  25-14, 25-16 in matches that could have gone either way.  
    Newport Catholic (23-6) went on to win the region as expected and will play Caldwell County (29-7) Friday night in the state tournament at Bellarmine.

    Cross country meet postponed until
    Thursday due to weather
    Coach Danny Simpson likes the Cynthiana Country Club course for a meet but the weather was just too bad to hold the annual Harrison County Invitational last week.  
    “It rained two inches on Wednesday and then was drizzling and cold Thursday so we decided to try for a better day,” said Simpson. “We want to give the athletes their best chance for success and even on this fine course today wasn’t it.”

    Harrison County’s Soccer Breds are advancing in the regional tournament after Monday’s defeat of the Pendleton County Wildcats,  2-1, in the opening round.
    “The game was very physical and played with a lot of emotion by both teams,” said Coach Nick Hill. “It was a hard-fought battle with a lot of ups and downs for both teams.”
    About 15 minutes into the game, Harrison County scored its first goal when Kyle Foster crossed a ball into the box and Jordan Gasser got just enough foot on it, to redirect the ball into the side net.

  • Another loss plagues Breds’ 2011...

    By Ray Sparks, Sports guest writer
    After three road games and a “bye” week sandwiched in between, the Harrison County Football Thorobreds were anxious to return to familiar surroundings on the Hilltop.
    After six straight losses, the Breds were looking to get back in the win column for the first time since the Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl on Aug. 20. Unfortunately, the Covington Catholic Colonels had other plans.

    The cross country team returns to action this week with the Harrison County Invitational on Thursday at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    “We have a large field of talented teams and there should be great competition,” said Coach Danny Simpson noting that Clark, Mason, Grant and Pendleton counties and Henry Clay head the field.
