  • Freshmen remain undefeated...

    Luke Slucher and Dalton Moore took turns scoring on short touchdown runs as the Harrison County freshman football team improved to 6-0 with a 26-0 win over Lewis County.  
    The score was 12-0 at the half with Slucher scoring first on a two-yard run followed by an identical run by Moore for the second score.  
    Both point-after kicks were no good.  
    In the second half, Slucher carried one in from seven yards out and Moore finished the touchdowns with a three-yard romp.  

  • Breds soccer defeats Grant...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team went on the road Thursday traveling to Dry Ridge to take on the Grant County Braves.  
    The Breds played very well from the start of this match as they attacked from the first whistle and did not let up.  
    The first goal came in the first half as Jesse Klapheke just out-hustled the opponent to a pass from Noah Mitchell.  Mitchell took the ball from three defenders to get the ball to Klapheke and Jesse blew it past the goal keeper.  

  • Highlands flies past Thorobreds...

    The No. 1-ranked team in Class 4A showed that its ranking was no mistake as the Bluebirds ran over the Harrison County Thorobreds 77-0 Friday night in Fort Thomas.  
    The Bluebirds scored on 10 of their 11 offensive possessions as the Thorobreds’ defense continued to have trouble tackling their opponents.  
    It wasn’t only tackling though as the Bluebirds showed anyone who wanted to see how a well-oiled football machine plays the game.  

  • This brings back memories

    I saw in the Lexington paper that Ron Bevars has retired as basketball coach at North Hardin High School.  
    I realize that many of you do not know him or recognize the name but some of you do and this brings back a flood of memories for me.  
    My late brother, Jim, was chairman of the Hardin County School Board for four or five terms and Bevars became a good friend of his and of his family.  

  • Breds third, Fillies fourth in...

    The Bracken County “Iceberg” Special Cross Country Meet was held Saturday, but had there been an iceberg, there surely would have been some flooding. The hot, humid weather and the rough terrain made for some treacherous footing which made running difficult.  
    Senior Grant Carr found the surface to his liking, however, as his performance in his mother’s old stomping grounds was good enough for second place.

    loses a close match at Brossart
    The Harrison County volleyball team eased past district rival Robertson County Thursday night in a straight set win 25-11, 25-22, 25-18. The 3-0 win was due to a good display of passing, setting and ball handling, according to Coach Bill Faulkner.  
    “Robertson County has a nice team with some good size and we had to play well to beat them in straight sets,” he noted. “It is always important to win the district matches.”

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    When you might think of a Rocky Mountain horse the first thought would be of a breed which would be prominent in the western states near the Rocky Mountains.  
    Well, as Lee Corso would say, “Not so fast my friends.”  
    Harrison County is one of the more established areas in the country of the breed that is known for its sure footedness and good temperament.

    By Stepahnie Cole, EKU public relations
    RICHMOND, Ky. – In the heat of two Texan summers, Bobby Feeback rubbed shoulders with some Cowboys in the fields. The football fields, that is.
    Now, after two summer-long, pre-season internships with the team, Feeback, an Eastern Kentucky University senior athletic training major from Cynthiana, has accepted a two-year seasonal position with the Dallas Cowboys.
