  • Score 'N' More
  • Thorobreds start fast, rout...

    On paper, the Harrison County vs. Nicholas County game looked like a one-sided affair. On the floor, it was a one-sided affair as the Thorobreds started fast, scoring 28 points in the first period to rout the Bluejackets 84-54.  
    Junior forward Zack Pulliam scored all 11 of his game points in the first quarter to lead the Thorobreds.  
    Senior forward Trenton Thompson scored nine of his game total of 17 in the opening period as the Thorobreds were constantly beating the Jackets down the floor.  

  • Fillies advance to district...

    The two teams split their two previous meetings this season and Monday night’s game was close throughout as the Harrison County Fillies edged past Nicholas County, 35-31.  
    The game was the opening match up in the 38th District Tournament hosted by Robertson County.  
    Harrison County’s junior forward, Madison Philpott, had perhaps her finest game as she played an aggressive style scoring 18 points and grabbing six rebounds.  
    Senior guard Chelsea Ingram was also in double figures with 10 points.  

  • HCMS cheerleaders repeat as...

    On Saturday, Feb. 14, the Harrison County Middle School cheerleaders competed in the Bluegrass Conference Cheer Competition.  
    The Harrison County squad was the defending champion in the event so they came into the competition with high expectations and a target on their back.  
    The girls held up their end of the bargain winning first place in the small division and also won the grand champion overall.  

  • The weather causes many problems

    Before I get into the article, I want to catch up on something I missed last week.  
    The eighth grade Colts did a fine job in the KBA state championships finishing in the Sweet Sixteen only a basket away from the Elite Eight.  
    Coach Glenn Lonaker’s charges beat teams from around the state and fell short by the one basket to the best team in Lexington.  
    The Colts finished 13th in the final state rankings which was higher than anyone in the Bluegrass Conference except for Scott County who was state champions.
