Today's Sports

  • Senior Cheerleaders

    Harrison County High School seniors Niki Whalen and Julie Henson finished their high school cheerleading careers when the basketball season ended Tuesday night.

  • District champions

    The tournament is called the “second season” for a reason.  
    What happened in the regular season has little bearing on what happens when it is for all of the marbles.  
    The proof of this surely can be found in the games this season and Thursday night between Pendleton County and the Harrison County Fillies.  
    The regular season match ups saw the Lady Cats defeat the Fillies easily both times by more than 20 points.  
    Thursday night after a 2-2 tie, the Fillies led all of the way and three times by as much as 21 points.

  • Roberts, Barnes lead HC archers...

    Eighth grader Madison Roberts and freshman Justin Barnes took overall top shooting honors at the NASP 8th Region shoot last Saturday at Harrison County Middle School.  
    A strong performance by all three HC divisions (high, middle and elementary) produced a sixth straight region title for the middle school while the elementary and high school each captured their third straight.  

  • Fillies, Thorobreds advance in...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds advanced to the championship games of the 38th District Monday night as they each won easily over Nicholas County.  
    The Fillies jumped out to a 10-0 lead and were never threatened as the Ladyjackets were ice cold from the field and could not prevent the Fillies from scoring.
    Nicholas County managed only 10 points for the half as they made only three of 17 attempts from the field.  

  • Barnett second, Shirley loses...

    Defending State Champion Brandon Barnett fell one match short of repeating as Thomas Buckman of Union County won an 8-4 decision in the championship match late Saturday night.  
    Barnett had been the Brandon Harrison County was used to up to this match as he worked his way into the finals.  
    He opened in the preliminaries by pinning Richie of Louisville Doss in 1:43 and followed with a 2:59 pin of Lynch of Newport.  

  • Some odd and ends during the...

    I had several comments on last week’s article about how the grandchildren remind me and others of me.
    I appreciate the kind words and also appreciate that someone reads this. I am thankful for the ability to be around them to know what they are doing.  
    Several things of note happened that I want to comment on this week.  
    First thing is Stephen Moses and Lee Kendall being selected to the 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame. Moses was the best shooter that I have seen in the past 35 years of watching Harrison County basketball.

  • Cheerleaders disappoint in...

    Cheerleading is difficult to explain.

    Kendall, Letcher, Moses in 2011 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame Class
    Three of the most outstanding local basketball figures in the area were named to this year’s hall of fame class in the 10th region. Dr. Stephen Moses of Harrison County, Lee Kendall of Harrison County and Greg Letcher of Nicholas County are three of the newest members of this prestigious hall.  

  • Thorobreds, Fillies end regular...

    Friday night it was the Thorobreds winning with just less than two seconds left in the game and Saturday night the Fillies hit the winning basket with 10 seconds left to end the regular season on a high note.
    The Thorobreds evened their record to 14-14 going into the 38th District Tournament Friday night when senior guard Eric Sanders hit a driving lay up with 1.6 seconds on the clock to give the Breds a 68-66 win over Montgomery County.
