    The Harrison County wrestling team’s major home meet, The Rumble on the Hilltop, has been rescheduled for Monday, Dec. 23.  
    The wrestling will begin at 11 a.m. in the Harrison County Middle School.  Coach Luke Tucker has been working to bring the teams back that were scheduled for the original Dec. 7 tournament. However, many teams had already filled their schedules.

    The Harrison County wrestling team, under the direction of Coach Luke Tucker, traveled to Paintsville Saturday to take part in the Johnson Central Dual Meet.  
    The Thorobreds battled Belfry, Montgomery County, East Ridge, Lee, Va, and the host Golden Eagles.  
    The Thorobreds defeated Belfry, 48-16, and East Ridge, 69-30, but fell to Montgomery County, 30-43, Lee, Va., 25-54, and the host Johnson Central squad, 18-63.

    For the first time the state cheerleading competition was held at the Alltech Center at the Kentucky Horse Park.
    The Harrison County cheerleaders competed in the small division and had things pretty much lining up for them as they prepared for their turn on the mat.  
    They had a great warm up and were prepared to take advantage of the fact that most teams that had already performed had fallen, leaving the door wide open for another Harrison County win.
    Coach Jessica Reynolds was excited as she watched the performance unfold.

  • Fillies roll past Williamstown,...

    Harrison County’ Fillies took what was a 10-point halftime lead to an easy 25-point (60-35) win Wednesday night over the Williamstown Lady Demons in their only home game of the season to date.
    The Fillies rolled out to a 13-4 advantage early before Williamstown changed to a 1-2-2 zone, which caused the Harrison County girls to become tentative.  

  • Thorobreds split weekend games...

    Only a last-second shot by St. Henry’s senior guard Nick Rechtin prevented the Harrison County Thorobreds from sweeping a weekend of basketball games in northern Kentucky Saturday night.  
    The Thorobreds dropped a 62-61 verdict on Rechtin’s last-second shot on Saturday after defeating Covington Holy Cross 73-58 the night before in Covington.
    On Friday night, the Breds jumped out to an early 15-3 lead and it looked as though they would blow the Indians out of their own gym.

    “It was a gut check for the other girls with Jordan (Doram) hobbled and they came through with a good effort,” surmised Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ 60-52 win at Nicholas County Monday night. “We showed more poise and confidence in the second half when we really needed it.”
    Senior center Jordan Doram led the Fillies to a 30-24 halftime lead with a splendid 21-point, 10-rebound first half performance.  

  • Jenkins resigns as Fillies...

    Harrison County is looking for a girl’s soccer coach following the resignation of head Coach Kim Jenkins after nine seasons at the helm of the Fillies.  
    Jenkins’ varsity tenure came after 16 years at the Harrison County Middle School.  
    Her overall record with the Fillies is 75-77-20 having won the last two district championships and finishing runners up in other seasons.  
    Jenkins notified her team of the decision late last week after careful consideration.
