  • 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.

  • Fillies win district battle with...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued their late-season improvement as they defeated the Nicholas County Lady Jackets Wednesday evening, 39-28, in the first game of the girl/boy doubleheader on the Hilltop.  
    On Saturday night the Lady Crusaders of St. Henry handed the Fillies a 56-51 defeat in a physical battle again in the Hilltop gym.

  • Thorobreds lose two of three,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds have seen their once sparkling 14-5 record crumble to a 16-11 mark losing five of their last seven games, which caused Coach Larry Kendall to change the starting line up Saturday when the Breds traveled to Martha Layne Collins High School.
    The Thorobreds started the past week with a loss at Estill County (12-14) in a performance that was less than desired to say the least.  

  • 38th District drawing deja vu

    The drawing for the 38th District Tournament took place Monday in the cafeteria of Harrison County High School.  
    Athletic Director Brad Allison was in charge of the proceedings which had an all too familiar theme.  
    The meeting began with Pendleton County’s Athletic Director Keith Smith proposing a plan to seed and have revenue sharing.  
    This plan was to allow Nicholas County and Robertson County to make more money on the tournament while Harrison County and Pendleton County would make significantly less.  

  • Breds are too little, too late...

    A lackluster beginning led to a bad ending Tuesday night as the Harrison County Thorobreds lost by a 60-57 score at Estill County.  
    The Breds lost the game despite hitting on five of eight three-point attempts in the final period when they cut the lead to one point before falling by the final three-point margin.  
    Harrison County had a final attempt with less than four seconds to play but junior Dillon Pulliam’s three-point attempt was short and time ran out on the Thorobreds.  

  • HCMS Wrestling
  • Brossart edges Breds in physical...

    The Hilltop gym was a buzz last Wednesday night as a good crowd anticipated the regional rivalry being renewed between the Bishop Brossart Mustangs and the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The junior varsity preliminary set the stage as the Breds, after trailing for the majority of the game, came back for a 47-38 win in a tough, physical battle.  
    Junior Grant Carr led the way with 14 points as defensive pressure was the key ingredient in the come-from-behind win.

  • It is the most important thing...

    When you live to be relatively old, you run into people who affect how you think and what is important and what isn’t.  
    Most of the time these people are your elders so they pass on before you do leaving you to mourn and also reflect on what it was that made them so important to you.  
    This happened to me again this week as my long time friend and fellow football official John Swinford passed away.
    John was many things to many different people, a husband, a friend, a father, a brother, as well as just an all around good man.
