  • Defense in second half propels...

    During the opening two quarters of the Monday night 38th District battle between Pendleton County and Harrison County, it looked like another typical rock’em sock’em game with the last one standing the winner.  
    But Harrison County came out in the second half playing an in-your-face defense that shut down the Wildcats and sent the Thorobreds to the championship game Friday with a 59-40 win under their belts.
    The game was played with a lot of energy and contact as one would think a game with 14 seniors involved would be.  

  • Fillies lose heartbreaker in...

    The first game of the 38th District Championship was a nail biter from the start with time running out on the Harrison County Fillies in the end for a 49 to 48 loss to the Pendleton County Lady Cats.
    Pendleton County jumped out to an early lead with sophomore McKayla Manor scoring eight of her 11 points in the first period.  
    Manor scored half of the Pendleton County points in the quarter as her team jumped out to a 16-12 lead at the quarter’s end.  

  • There is some time that I will...

    I was coerced Sunday to waste more time than I have wasted in I don’t know when.  
    It depends on one’s definition of “wasted time” but in my mind, I lost several hours.  
    NASCAR has not started yet so those of you who think that it is a waste of time to watch a bunch of cars drive in a circle, that wasn’t my time waster.  
    I like NASCAR and don’t consider that a waste of time especially if I am in attendance at the track.

    HCHS cheerleaders finish 12th in national competition, head to state finals Saturday
    The Harrison County High School Varsity Cheerleaders returned last week from a great performance in the national finals in Orlando, Fla. The girls, competing in the small squad division, placed 12th of the 42 teams in the division.  
    The girls advanced to the finals by completing one of the best rounds of the day in the semi’s advancing them on to Sunday night’s competition.  

  • Homecoming/Senior Night blowout...

    The delayed and rescheduled homecoming game and the end-of-the-season Senior Night festivities were very good Friday night except for one glaring omission. The Harrison County Thorobreds lost the game in a less than impressive outing leaving an emotional hole in the festivities.
    The night started very nicely with a chili supper/bake sale sponsored by Project Graduation, which was nearly a $1,000 success.  
    The junior varsity game was very well played going into overtime before the Montgomery County team edged the Thorobreds junior varsity 58 to 54.

  • Fillies defeat Augusta, lose at...

    The Harrison County Fillies wrapped up the regular season Friday night with a 60-31 loss at Bryan Station after beating Augusta 55-50 Wednesday on the Hilltop.  
    The Fillies end the season with a 5-21 record yet are an improving ball club.  
    On Wednesday, Harrison County overcame an outstanding performance from Augusta sophomore Jerica Kelsch who lit up the score board for 31 points.  
    Kelsch scored only two points in the opening period, which saw Harrison County lead 17-6 at the stop.  

  • Harrison County improves to 17-...

    Four Thorobreds scored in double figures Tuesday night as Harrison County began to right the ship with an 83-66 victory over Frankfort’s Panthers in Frankfort.  
    The Thorobreds started the game a little slow but then went on a 10-to-zero run and never surrendered the lead in the best shooting night that the Breds have had in two weeks.  
    Coach Larry Kendall started his “new’ line up and again it worked well for the Thorobreds.  

  • Lady Eagles wear down...

    The construction was only the beginning of the road blocks that the Harrison County Fillies would endure Monday night as they battled the Scott High Lady Eagles in a game pitting two 10th Region rivals.  
    The Fillies were working to continue their late-season improvement as they prepare for the opening game of the 38th District Tournament next Monday against Pendleton County.  
    The assignments facing the 16-10 Lady Eagles became tougher almost immediately as sophomore point guard Kassidy Cook went down with an apparent hamstring injury.  

  • The Wildcats will be better than...

    This week for the first time since really early in the season, the University of Kentucky Wildcats are rated in the top 25 of college basketball.  
    In the Associated Press poll, the Wildcats are seven points ahead of Tubby Smith’s Minnesota Golden Gophers for the 25th and last spot in the poll.  
    The USA Today Coaches poll does not have the Wildcats in it but there is probably some bias among the coaches.  
    I noticed that the coaches also had Indiana second to Duke instead of first like the Associated Press did in its poll.
