  • Ramblings on Sunday night

    I often wait until later in the week to write my column, but so much has happened I wanted to start on Sunday this week.  
    One of my favorite columns that I used to read is one by Dave Barry.  
    Barry is not in the Herald Leader they instead have champs like Mrs. Davis so I can’t read him anymore or don’t even know if he still writes.  
    One of the ways Barry used to write was to put together short thoughts about many different ideas and call them ramblings.  
    So this is a rambling edition of Mike’s Minute.

  • Harrison County Cross Country...

    Coach Danny Simpson’s Harrison County Cross Country teams have started the season with early success as they work to compensate for the short time for preparation.  
    “We have not had enough practice,” the long-time coach noted. “But at some point and time you have to compete. We obviously need a lot of work, but I like what I see.”
    Simpson’s remarks came after two good performances, especially by the Thorobreds.  The season began on Aug. 21 with a somewhat confusing all comers meet at Woodford County.

    The busy week for the Thorobreds golfers started last Thursday when one of the better golf teams in the area, Pendleton County, came calling at the Cynthiana Country Club.

  • Breds second in Soccer Classic,...

    After a bruising 1-0 defeat at the hands, head and feet of Bishop Brossart on Thursday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds returned the 1-nil favor as they defeated Campbell County in the final game of the Thorobreds Classic Saturday at LeBus Field.
    The match was full of ups and downs as the emotions and effort of the players on both teams seemed to go from high to low with little or no warning.  
    Because of the roller coaster-type effort, the Breds won by the close one-goal margin though they dominated play through out the match.  

  • Fillies trounce Dayton, lose a...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team wrapped up the first win of the season as they pounded Dayton, 8-0, Wednesday night at LeBus Field.  
    The match that was originally scheduled to be hosted by the northern Kentucky school was moved to LeBus Field because the Lady Devils’ field is not yet ready for play.  
    Sophomore Hannah Thomas and junior Haley Carr each had two goals for the Fillies in the match that was never close.  

  • Golfers working hard

    The Harrison County High School golf teams are busy working on their game and playing against some tough region competition.
    On Wednesday the Fillies traveled to the Pendleton County Country Club to face the Lady Wildcat golfers.  
    Sarah Holland again led the Fillies as the seventh grader shot a 55. Morgan Grose was the next top scorer as she and fellow freshman, Sarah Durbin, shot a 59 and a 61 while sophomore Morgan Nelly finished the scoring with a 69.  
    The Lady Wildcats bested the Fillies 187 to 242 in this nine-hole battle.
