  • Let’s have a parade and a pageant

    Finally we have the right attitude for the beginning of football season.  
    Anticipating the beginning of football is much like waiting for Christmas presents or your wedding day or in my case something to eat that doesn’t say “diet” this or that.  
    The opening of football is one of the best times of the year. No more waiting for the sound of the cheerleaders and the band. No more waiting for the whistle to start the kickoff.  The time is here.

  • Breds tie Bluegrass United in...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team had its final tune up for the regular season Thursday night as they faced off with Bluegrass United.  
    Bluegrass United is a club team made up of players who are high school age or slightly older and are not currently on any teams in the central Kentucky area due to being home schooled or other factors.
    Kyle Foster scored the only Thorobreds’ varsity goal of the evening with about 30 seconds left in the first half off of a volley that was served from a corner kick.

    to start with a parade

  • Tri-County Sluggers
  • Thorobreds edge alumni team 4-3...

    As Coach Nick Hill put it, “The alumni team came out in full force packed with super stars of the past and we had the closest game in several years.”  
    This was how it went in the annual Harrison County Alumni game Friday night at LeBus Field.  
    The past players line up was made up of the Whalen crew, (Rus, Hank, John and Isaac), Duncan Bell, Dr. Larry Bishop, Johnny Mac Dawson, Seth Barnes, Dustin French, Austin Lail, John McEwan, Jarod Morrison, Petey Reynolds and the Wiglesworth duo (Andy and D.A.).  

  • Football Breds on target for...

    “I think we are right where we should be at this point of the preseason,” said Coach Mark Carroll after the Maroon/White scrimmage Friday night at the new Athletic Complex. “We were able to evaluate at each position in order to place the right player in the right spot.”
    The Friday night event, in front of several hundred fans, featured the jv/freshman offense playing against their defensive counterparts for two segments followed by the varsity squad doing the same.  

  • Harrison volleyball team wins...

    The Harrison County volleyball team lost twice early in the Bluegrass State games on Friday night, but roared back for five straight wins before falling to Green County.  
    The loss in the semi finals placed the Harrison County squad in third overall, which awarded them a bronze medal.  
    Senior Ashley Cordray set the ball well the entire tournament according to head coach Bill Faulkner.  

  • Youth football off to a good...

    I’ve spoken with Coach Mark Carroll on several occasions about the youth football program in Cynthiana/Harrison County during the last year.  
    Keep in mind I have not been all that involved nor do I assume to know what problems are real and what is only perceived to be a problem.  The problem with a perceived problem is that it gets its own legs and becomes a real problem sometimes when it is in fact really nothing.
