Today's Sports

  • Winter sports show great promise

    The winter sports are upon us and today on the anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, given by that famous Hoosier Abraham Lincoln, I thought I would extol the virtues of the Harrison County High School teams.  
    As you know, the teams have been preparing themselves for the last several weeks to get started on the right foot.  

  • Bruce Stone Educational Merit...
  • Score 'N' More
  • Burgen named to Bowling Hall of...

    Kent Burgan of Harrison County was named to the Kentucky State Bowling Hall of Fame this month in ceremonies held in Owensboro.  
    Nominees are elected based on their service and or skill in the sport of bowling. They must also show, through their competitive skills, leadership and/or contributions that they have enriched the reputation and progress of the game of bowling.  
    Burgan was named in the performance category.

  • Is it bullying or harmless fun...

    Before I get into the topic of my article, I want to congratulate the Licking Valley Singers on another wonderful program this past Sunday.  
    The theme of the program was Songs of the Silver Screen and the songs all brought back memories of movies that I had watched when I was younger except for Somewhere over the Rainbow. Since I never saw The Wizard of Oz as a child I didn’t remember the song for that reason.  

  • Sports beat

    Cross country awards to be Nov. 17
    The Harrison County Cross Country post season awards program will be held Sunday, Nov. 17, at 1 p.m.   
    The program will be held at the Harrison County Extension Office meeting room. All high school, middle school athletes, friends and family are invited to attend. There will be a meal with the awards presented immediately afterward.

  • Carr competes in Saturday’s...

    Harrison County senior Grant Carr completed the third of his three fall sports on Saturday as he finished 57th of more than 200 runners in the Class AA State Cross Country Meet.  
    The event was held on the course at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday morning beginning at 11:30.  
    Carr finished his football career the night before in Paintsville and competed in the Saturday meet both sore and sleep deprived, but still made a good showing.  

  • Fry named Second Team All State...

    Harrison County senior Taylor Fry has been named to the All State East Second Team for the 2013 season.  
    Fry, who is going to play at the University of Tennessee Martin next year, played midfielder for the 38th District Champion Fillies.  
    She is known for her speed and her mastery of corner kicks amongst her many soccer skills.  
    Fry was joined on the East team by three members of state champion Notre Dame as well as Brandi Rice from 10th Region runners-up Campbell County.  

  • Golden Eagles fly past Breds in...

    The third-rated team in 4A left a real impression Friday night as they rolled past the Harrison County Thorobreds, 77-13, in the first round of the 2013 KHSAA playoffs.  
    The Johnson Central Golden Eagles used big runs and a tough defense to smother the Thorobreds before they could get started in the game played in Paintsville.
    The Thorobreds kicked off to begin the game with a squib kick, which Johnson Central recovered on their own 30-yard line.  

  • HCHS Dance Team

    The Harrison County High School dance team held an open rehearsal last week for members of the community to see the group routine prior to the first competition of the season on Saturday.
