    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County High School football team held its annual banquet Thursday night at the Elk’s Club with more than 100 people in attendance.  
    The awards ceremony featured a meal prepared by David Turner consisting of beef and pork barbeque and desserts furnished by the parents.  
    Coach Jim Carr was the master of ceremonies in the two-hour meal and program.

    Meet the Breds and Fillies
    Friday, Nov. 16
    It’s time to kick off another basketball season for the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds. The annual Meet the Breds and Fillies night will be held Friday, Nov. 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the high school gym.

  • Football season is over for...

    This weekend marked the end of a tough season for the Harrison County football Thorobreds and, for all practical purposes, the football Wildcats, too.
    In a season that was the first for Jim Carr as head coach, the Thorobreds had everything from injuries to defections to go with a youthful team.
    There were high points and low points, which I will examine here.
    First, the high points beginning with the actual hiring of Carr.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Breds fifth, Fillies seventh in...

    The high expectations and hopes that the Harrison County cross country teams went to the regional with were not realized though the athletes performed well in many cases.  
    The weather was cold and dreary, which, according to Coach Danny Simpson, the runners were not quite prepared for.  

  • Golden Eagles fly over Breds...

    The few Harrison County fans that braved the trip to Paintsville Friday night must have wondered one thing for sure. That would be if this is the eighth best team in 4A how good are the other seven?  
    The Golden Eagles ran over the Breds in every facet of the game Friday night en route to a 68-14 first round of the playoffs win where they scored the first five times they touched the ball.
    Only 56 seconds were played before junior Jordan Young picked off a Robbie Stroub pass and took it 38 yards for the first Johnson Central score.  

  • Youthful Fillies look to speed...

    Kim Furnish enters her second year as head coach of the Harrison County Fillies with some definite changes in mind.  
    The line up will change because three starters from last year’s 10-22 squad are gone.  
    The trio averaged in double figures between the three of them so the points will be missed as well as team leadership.  
    Kelsey Cummins was the point guard for three years, Mariah Nichols, the second leading scorer and Emalee Little was capable of having big scoring nights.

  • Band plays final scene of James...

    The final three weeks of the Harrison County High School Marching Throbreds’ season played out like any one of the many James Bond movies that the band portrayed in its 2012 competition show, Espionage:  The Music of James Bond.  
    The characters provided by Ian Fleming and the vision provided by the Broccoli family set the backdrop for a season full of thrills for the band.  
    The culmination of the season had all of the ups and downs shared by the many thrillers that bear the James Bond name.
