  • Volleyball Fillies roll over...

    The Harrison County Volleyball Fillies won an easy home victory over Madison Southern’s Eagles, 25-6 and 25-10, on Thursday evening.  
    “We played well,” briefly stated Coach Bill Faulkner.  “The girls are continuing to improve on their passing and setting the ball for some kills.”  
    Junior Jordan Doram had nine kills to lead the Fillies with fellow juniors Samantha Adkins and Ellie McLaren chipping in with four kills each.  
    Senior setter Alyssa Campbell had a nice game with 18 assists.

  • Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl...

    The Jim Carr era of Harrison County football did not start the way it was planned or desired by the Harrison County High School Thorobreds.  
    The inability to stop Sheldon Clark on third and fourth down led to a 28-13 defeat for the Breds in the second Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl.  
    The Thorobreds took the opening kick off and marched down the field from their own 40 to the Sheldon Clark 31 before turning the ball over on downs.  

  • How can we help?

    In his first post game interview as a high school coach, Jim Carr made mention that our opposition was bigger and stronger than we were and if you attended the game, he didn’t need to tell you that.  
    It was evident by looking at the teams and seeing the dominance of Sheldon Clark’s line early in the game.  
    Harrison County was better conditioned and played more evenly in the second half, but the difference was critical when one considers the outcome of the game.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Soccer Breds begin season with 6...

    The Thorobred Classic began Tuesday evening with two matches that did not turn out to be very close.  
    In the opening game, Bishop Brossart (1-0) rolled past Campbell County (0-1) by a 4-nil score.  
    The host Thorobreds (1-0) then scored three goals in the first 15 minutes against the Frankfort Panthers (0-1) and went on to a 6-1 win.  
    Senior fullback Ben Anness took all of 58 seconds to score the first goal of the season for the Thorobreds on a corner kick.  

  • Volleyball Fillies lose twice,...

    The trip to Villa Madonna last Thursday didn’t turn out well as the Fillies were swept two straight by the home Blue Lightning squad, 9-25 and 19-25.  
    The win made Villa Madonna’s record 2-1 while the Fillies evened up their season mark to 1-1.  
    The Fillies junior varsity also dropped two straight 10-21 and 12-21.
    On Monday evening, the Fillies hosted the Lady Pirates of Powell County in a game that disappointed Coach Bill Faulkner.  

  • Fillies battle Lady Bearcats to...

    On Monday night, the Harrison County Fillies opened the 2012 soccer season by hosting the Anderson County Lady Bearcats. The Lady Bearcats featured a veteran line up of tall and talented players.  
    The Fillies had several scoring opportunities in the first half but could not push one across while Anderson County played a physical style which led to much contact.  
    Harrison County took advantage of their speed advantage to have the opportunities that they had but just couldn’t get one into the goal.  

  • Breds football shows improvement...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Grant County Friday night for a three-way scrimmage with the host Braves and the East Jessamine Jaguars.  
    The scrimmage was scoreless for the night as defense and the format of the scrimmage made it difficult to cross the goal line.
    Each team played the other with the offense running 10 plays from their own 30-yard line in an attempt to score.  
    The Thorobreds had a couple of opportunities to score early, but did not do so and ended the evening scoreless.
