  • Feeback accepts position with...

    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.

  • Have some pride out there

    One of the favorite clichés for the assistant football coach to scream at players following a less than admirable play is to “Have some Pride.”  
    Let’s examine that saying in case after being screamed at for 40 straight minutes the young player even comprehends what is being spat at him.  
    Pride in the dictionary is a noun meaning “feeling of one’s personal worth; justly proud; best of a group, conceit; group of lions.”  

  • Harrison cross country runs well...

    The Harrison County Fillies were third and the Thorobreds sixth in Saturday’s Berea Invitational Meet as the season reaches the half way point.  
    Freshman Taylor Harney led the Fillies as she had her best race finishing 27th in 27:44.  
    Caylin Mattox was right behind Harney finishing 28th with Abby Cooper 30th, Kayla Joy 36th, Tamara Lunsford 37th and Chelsea Bowman 40th in the 5000M run.  
    The race was run on a slower course which winds through the woods and beside a creek in a picturesque setting that the runners enjoy.  

  • Harrison County volleyball...

    Last week was an extremely busy one for the Harrison County Fillies volleyball team, but one that saw them win six of eight matches and take third place in the Dink Scott Tournament in Mt. Sterling.
    The Villa Madonna Blue Lightning were guests of the Fillies on Thursday night and, according to Coach Bill Faulkner, his girls may have been too gracious as hosts.  
    “I felt like we should have won the Villa Madonna match,” he explained. “We just made some silly mistakes and had some bad service attempts.”

  • Score 'N' More
  • Fillies losing streak at 3 as...

    The season is winding down and the Harrison County Fillies are finding the schedule tougher and scoring very difficult as the tournament nears.  
    “We are having trouble connecting,” said Coach Kim Jenkins after Monday’s game in Falmouth. “Tonight we outshot Pendleton County 10 to eight but just didn’t hit enough.”  
    The Fillies began the losing streak with last Monday’s tough 0-2 loss to Campbell County who is rated in the top 20 state wide.  

  • Special teams, defense let down...

    The trip to Williamsburg was a long one that became a lot longer Friday on the way home as the Thorobreds returned to Cynthiana with a 50-20 loss on their record.  
    The Yellow Jackets (3-2), who are the eighth-rated team in the State 1A standings, scored the first three times that they had the ball and led at the half by 30-14 before they outscored the Breds 20 to six in the second half for the final 50-20 score.

  • Soccer Breds lose to Newport CC...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team lost a tough battle Thursday night to the state’s 17th ranked team in Newport Central Catholic, 1-0, on what would have to be pure bad luck.  
    Playing on a wet field for the first time this season, the Thorobreds’ goal keeper, Christian Carey, slipped coming out of goal to field a ball and the visiting team kicked one in for the game’s only point.  

  • HCMS harriers compete in...

    The Harrison County Middle School Cross Country team traveled to Frankfort on Wednesday last week and participated in the Frankfort Middle School’s All Comers Meet.  
    The nine-team boys’ and seven-team for girls’ meet featured middle schools from Frankfort, Lexington, Lawrenceburg and Versailles as well as the Harrison County team.  
    The girls’ team saw Sierra Ecklar, once again, finish near the front as she was 11th of the 90 runners in the 1500M run.  

  • Fillies sweep volleyball matches...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team won two matches this week with straight set wins over Grant County Monday and George Rogers Clark Tuesday night.
    Monday night the Fillies played as well as they have in a while, according to Coach Bill Faulkner.  
    “We played with more confidence and with more focus than we had for a while.,” said the veteran coach.
