Today's Sports

  • Score 'N' More
  • Remembering when I had potential

    I have not always admired athletes who worked hard every day though they, in the end, did not accomplish much.  
    I thought of this today when I read that Colt McCoy had lost the starting quarterback job to Brandon Weeden after what really wasn’t a very long tryout period.  
    McCoy stated that he was the first man at practice and the last one to leave and would continue to work hard as the back up.  
    That is sort of Tim Tebow-like, which in my youth would have made me disdainful to say the least.

  • Cross Country looks to improve...

    Coach Danny Simpson has two state qualifiers returning for the 2012 season and some others returning who have been out for a while, which gives hope for an improved season in 2012.  
    Only Jacob Marsh graduated from last year’s squad and Jacob was injured for the entire year so it is much like the team is back with a few exceptions.  
    Three seniors are on each the Fillies and Thorobreds squads with similar situations facing both squads.

  • Football Hall of Fame honors...

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Football Alumni Association added four more names to the Hall of Fame, recognized a family of supporters and gave two scholarships Saturday evening at the ninth annual banquet held at the high school.
    After Rev. Kenneth Newby offered the blessing, attendees were treated to a meal served by the current football team members.

  • HCHS football team prepares for...

    Friday night at 7:30 p.m. the first look of the year at the football Thorobreds will take place in Ingles Stadium.  
    The football Breds will divide into two fairly equal teams and go at it for four eight-minute quarters officiated by a regular crew from the Central Kentucky Football Officials Association.  Other than the time per quarter, which is normally 12 minutes, the game will be played with nearly real game procedure.  

  • Volleyball season opens Tuesday...

    Coach Bill Faulkner faces many unknowns as he and the Harrison County Volleyball team hit the floor Tuesday night against St. Patrick’s on the Hilltop.  
    Gone are seven seniors from last year’s 29-9 district champion team.  
    Six of the seniors started every game last year with the seventh, Brittany Richardson, suffering an early season-ending injury.  
    The six seniors are Sara Barnett, Emily Cassell, Allison Cordray, Ashley McCarty, Jill Mounts and Madeline Schroeder.
