  • Soccer Breds rebound to beat...

    “What a turnaround, compared to the Sayre performance,” exclaimed Coach Nick Hill. “We had a great intensity tonight; you could see it in their eyes.”  
    That was Coach Hill’s first statement after the Thursday night 6-nil destruction of the Grant County Braves at the Athletic Complex.  
    The first score came with only 29 seconds played as after the Braves had the opening possession, the Breds quickly took the ball away and 13 to 14 passes later, the ball was in the net.  

  • Volleyball Fillies split two...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team traveled north to Campbell County and was defeated by the Lady Camels in three straight sets, 10-25, 13-25 and 18-25.  
    According to Coach Bill Faulkner, the speed of the match was a problem for the Fillies.  
    “We were never able to get into our offense because they exploited us with their jump serves. We couldn’t get our block to the outside, which really hurt us,” Faulkner said.
    Jordan Doram had seven kills and four blocks in this match.  

  • Fillies win two straight with...

    Sophomore goal keeper Chelsea Ingram posted her forth and fifth shutouts of the year as the Harrison County Fillies won 2-0 Saturday at Walton Verona and 5-0 at home Monday night over Paris.
    Senior Randi Schweitzer scored one goal and freshman Amelia Bolin the other as the Fillies ran into a difficult brand of defense at Walton Verona.
    Marly Jenkins had the lone Harrison County assist.  
    The home standing Bearcats play a trapping defense that is a little unusual and the Fillies struggled some to find shots.  

  • Saddled with injuries, Breds...

    With six players in street clothes on the side line, Coach Jim Carr had to wonder how many more players can be injured.  
    He found out Friday night when, as with the score tied late in the third quarter at 22-all, sophomore speedster Deshon Talbott went down with a knee injury and the Breds fell to the Mason County Royals 39-22 in Maysville.  
    The Breds seemed to lose focus for a short period of time, just long enough for the Royals to score twice and make the Breds go strictly to the air taking the visitors out of their game plan.  

  • Raising money for the food pantry

    The Harrison County High School Bred’s soccer team recently held a food drive to support the local Food Pantry. A generous amount of food items and $253 were presented to the pantry. Thanks to Walmart, Ken’s Market and all who donated to make the food drive a success.

  • Mike’s Minute

    Sports are a very important part of many people’s lives, including mine.  
    But I believe that there are occasions that call for remembering other things that are much more important. Such is the case this week when we reflect on the 11th anniversary of the cowardly attack made by Muslim radicals on New York and the World Trade Center.  
    The many people whose lives were lost and others whose lives were forever changed should be in our utmost thoughts and prayers during this week especially if not at all times.

    Thorobreds golfers continue
    struggles in two matches

    The Harrison County boys’ golf team traveled again to Mt. Sterling on Saturday and competed in the 25-team Montgomery County Invitational.  
    After playing within 14 strokes of the Indians in the last match at the Cynthiana Country Club, the Breds’ scores escalated to a 377 team score for a 22nd place finish of the 25-participating squads.  

  • Harrison runners second at...

    Tuesday, Sept, 4, was another hot, muggy day in central Kentucky, so the Harrison County cross country squad traveled to Woodford County for a four-team meet.  
    Both Harrison County squads finished second in the meet despite running their third meet in six days.  
    Ross and Harry Smith led the Breds as they finished fourth and fifth in a strong performance by the brothers.  
    The winning time of 17:52 was turned in by Adam Smith of Berea beating the Smith brothers times by a little more than two minutes.  

  • Soccer Breds win at Bourbon,...

    There were some similarities in the Thursday soccer match at Bourbon County and the home match Tuesday against Sayre.  
    Both scores were 1-nil after being scoreless at the half. In both games the Thorobreds started slow and after each game Coach Nick Hill was unimpressed with the results.  

  • Rough schedule continues as...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds continued their difficult early schedule Friday night as they visited last year’s 6A state runners up Scott County.  
    Though the final score was 61-6, the score really did not indicate the effort that the Thorobreds extended in the loss.  
    Scott County scored on its first possession as it took over on the Harrison County 5-yard line following a blocked kick.  
    The Thorobreds took the opening kick off to their own 30-yard line before giving the ball up with the punt.
