  • 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.

  • Baseball is wrapping up regular...

    For those of us who are Major League Baseball fans this is the most exciting time of the year.  Pennant races are into the last week and this year we have both American and National League wild cards going down to the wire.  
    The division winners are almost all secured with four of the six divisions locked up and the other two nearly won as well.  
    The two Central divisions are still up for grabs with Detroit and St. Louis holding an edge going into the last week.

  • Breds return to form with 1-0...

    After the loss in Winchester on Tuesday, Sept. 17, traveling to Sayre on Thursday was not considered to be a good thing since the Spartans owned a win over George Rogers Clark in a match that was played only a week or so before.  
    However, Coach Nick Hill was able to inspire his players with the prospect and the Thorobreds grabbed a 1-0 win in Lexington.
    This match was played earlier in the evening than most and with no junior varsity since the Sayre facility is without lights.  

  • Fillies wallop Wolverines 4-0,...

    Using a prolific corner kick offense, the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Western Hills Lady Wolverines 4-0 Wednesday night in the Athletic Complex.  
    It was a dual win for the Fillies as the junior varsity began the night with a 1-0 win over Western Hills as Lexie Fryman scored with 9:04 left in the first half and the defense led by keeper Olivia Partin held off the junior varsity Lady Wolverines.
