  • 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.  

  • Cross Country teams travel to...

    On Thursday, the Harrison County cross country teams competed in the 12-team Chick-Fil-A Invitational at Asbury College in Wilmore.  
    The results were not as good as hoped. Although the athletes ran hard, they didn’t finish well. Both the varsity girls and boys finished 11th of the 12 teams.  
    Erin Bradford was the leader at the finish for the Fillies as she finished 32nd in 26:06 for the 5000M race. Brooke Frederick, 40th, Bailey Caudill, 54th, Caylin Mattox, 75th, and Tabitha Iles, 84th, were the top five finishers for the Fillies.  

  • Time to predict the Super Bowl...

    I believe that it is fun to predict what might happen given that no one knows who will be injured, fired or such as that.  I am going to do this for the NFL, broken down by division, until I get to the Super Bowl.  
    NFC East: Toughest division from top to bottom in the NFC.  
    I think the Eagles will win this division because they have the best coach and some great athletes.

    Volleyball Fillies lose fifth straight
    match 2-0 to Lexington Christian Thursday
    The Harrison County Volleyball Fillies’ ball handling was again a problem as the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles raced past them on the Hilltop Thursday night.  
    The undefeated Lady Eagles won in two straight sets 25-16 and 25-10 to improve their record to 4-0 for the year.  (Since this game the Lady Eagles have improved to 9-0)  

  • Soccer Breds tie Indians at...

    In what Coach Nick Hill referred to as “the entire team firing on all cylinders,” the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team tied Montgomery County 0-0 last Thursday at the Athletic Complex.  
    A nice crowd from both schools witnessed an intense battle from the opening kick, which saw the Thorobreds take the action to the Indians in an unusually physical game for the Breds.  

  • Thorobreds bowled over in Pike...

    It appeared to be a small college team playing a bowl game Friday night in Belfry in the second game of the Pike County Bowl.  
    After Pike County Central unmercifully ran up the score on helpless Phelps, 62-6, the band struck up the Belfry fight song and out came about 100 red-clad football players to ready themselves for battle.  
    This was a high school football atmosphere that stories are written about in the how to do it books.

  • Fillies shutout Lady Flyers...

    Senior Johnna Marshall and freshman Millie Wiglesworth each scored as the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Franklin County Lady Flyers at the Athletic Complex last Wednesday evening.  
    “I am really proud of how hard the girls work,” said Coach Kim Jenkins. “We defeated a really good team tonight.”  
    The Lady Flyers and the Fillies battled to a 2-2 tie on Aug. 11 in a scrimmage at Frankfort so the improvement was obvious.
