  • Pirates big plays scuttle...

    “We have to get to the point where we eliminate the big plays and we can win games like this one,” commented Coach Mark Carroll after Friday’s 34-7 loss to Belfry. “It’s a learning process and we just didn’t come up with the big defensive plays when we needed them.”

  • Volleyball Fillies fall to 5-2...

    Harrison County has a very good volleyball team. Just how good remains to be seen, but Coach Bill Faulkner likes the potential.  
    “We lost our last two matches to two of the better teams we will see in our region,” said Faulkner after the Tuesday night loss at home to Campbell County.  “We played right with Campbell County and actually thought we won the second set until the penalty was called.”  
    The penalty was for a hand in the net, which converted a 25-23 win to a 24-all tie and an eventual 24-26 loss for the Fillies.

  • Breds soccer team loses tough...

    In a very energetic and contrasting match, the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team fell by a 2-1 margin at Montgomery County on Thursday.  
    The first half was all Montgomery County on offense as the Indians ran their action plan well and were constantly putting heat on the Thorobreds’ defense.  
    A couple of defensive lapses by the Breds, and the Indians took a 2-0 lead into the half.  
    The contrast came in the second half as the Thorobreds took over with the ball and had the home team back on its heels the entire period.  

  • Harrison County’s Thorobred...

    Harrison County’s Thorobred golfers continued with four matches last week in all of which they played very competitively.  
    The Fillies too had one match where they were edged by Montgomery County last Tuesday by a 162-174 score. In this match, senior Katelin Martin led the way with 54 with Kristen Aubrey shooting a 56 and Sarah Holland 64.
    The Fillies next match is Wednesday at Pendleton County followed by a match at Nicholas on Thursday.

  • Good judgment and college...

    When a football team is in the huddle, the quarterback is the one who calls the play whether he makes the decision or it is sent in from the sidelines.
    When the team gets to the line of scrimmage, he then decides whether the play call will be successful against the defensive formation or an audible needs to be called.  
    If you are a fan or a member of the team you hope that the quarterback’s judgment is sound and the decisions he makes will be the right ones.   

  • Cross country opens season with...

    Coach Danny Simpson liked what he saw in the first week of competition for the 2011 Harrison County High School and Middle School cross country teams.  
    They opened the week with a dual meet in Frankfort with Scott County where first place was taken by Harrison County in both the boys and girls races and finished the week with a good showing in a large meet in Covington.
    Tuesday was to be an all comers meet and several middle school teams were there, but Scott County and Harrison County had the only varsity teams.

  • Thorobreds open season with 33-...

    Harrison County was 8-0 in its football win column against Grant County going into Saturday night’s Hometown Pharmacy/Thorobred Bowl tussle with the Braves.
    That record can now be 9-0 as the Breds rolled up 455 yards of total offense in a thorough 33-14 whipping of the neighbors to the northwest.  
    Senior quarterback Joe Korona was named player of the game for the Breds as he threw for 164 yards and ran for another 118 to lead the way for the Harrison County squad.  

  • Soccer Breds close out Thorobred...

    Coach Nick Hill was upbeat yet philosophical after the Thorobreds won their first match of the season in three tries on Saturday night.  
    “We could have been three wins and no losses if we would have played like we did tonight,” he said. “The players realized that the modified kickball they were playing was not going to win anything.”
