  • Fillies continue close losses,...

    The saying ‘close but no cigar’ is getting all to familiar for the Harrison County Fillies as they dropped two more close games that were within their grasp.  
    On Saturday, the Fillies lost to Bourbon County (13-7) in Paris by a score of 52-49 in one of their better efforts of the season.  
    A couple of critical misses late in the game along with an abundance of fourth quarter turnovers spelled doom for the Harrison County quintet.

  • Wrestlers whip Bourbon County,...

    Harrison County won 10 of 14 matches in the Border Battle with Bourbon County Wednesday night in a 58-22 win over the Colonels.  
    There were four forfeit wins for the Breds compared to only two forfeit losses as Harrison County is beginning to recover from a season of illness and injury.  
    Kellon Williams in the 220 lbs class, won by a major decision (12-2) while the remainder of the Thorobreds’ wins were with falls.  

  • Is it in the rule book?

    My mentor in officiating and one of the best people ever, John Swinford had an answer to coaches not wanting a rule to be enforced.  
    He never, to my knowledge, actually used it but he had a great comeback when a particular rule was not liked by a coach.  
    John would say something like we should let each coach line out the rules from the book that they do not want called and see how that works out.  

  • Harrison County Middle School...

    The Harrison County Middle School sixth, seventh and eighth grade teams played at home with Powell County Thursday, at Bourbon County on Monday and again at home Tuesday with Paris.  
    This busy schedule included the first win of the year for the seventh grade Monday at Bourbon County and Eighth Grade Night Tuesday on the Hilltop.
    The sixth graders improved their season record to 9-5 with wins over Powell County, 25-13, Bourbon County, 29-19, and Paris, 29-12.  
    The sixth grade Colts have now won six straight games.  

  • Breds continue Jekyll and Hyde...

    When the Harrison County Thorobreds beat 10th Region power George Rogers Clark last Tuesday it looked like the long anticipated improvement to region contender had taken place.  
    Instead, Harrison County traveled to Bourbon County Thursday and played what may have been their worse game of the season.  
    The Thorobreds jumped out to the expected lead against the 6-10 Colonels rolling to a 13-3 advantage after three minutes.  

  • Gems sparkle at Jamfest Cheer...

    The Cynthiana Gems traveled to Indianapolis over the weekend for the Jamfest Cheer Supernationals.  
    The Gems have two divisions, the Amethysts and the Sapphires.  
    The Amethyst are the older group in Youth Level II while the Sapphires are the younger girls in Youth Level I. The girls range from ages 6-11 for the two teams.  
    The Supernationals saw the Sapphires bring home the second place trophy while the Amethyst were fifth overall despite an excellent second place in Sunday’s final.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Wrestlers finish 9th at North...

    The Harrison County High School wrestling team sent a group of nine wrestlers to Radcliff Saturday to battle in the North Hardin Invitational.  
    Illness and injury have plagued the grapplers as of late and has severely limited practice and meet participation.
    Three members of Harrison County’s wrestling team continued Saturday to compile an outstanding series of matches for the season.  
    Kellon Williams finished in first place with a decision over Hunter Ruber of Walton Verona and a pin over Josh Mullins of Newport.
