  • Free throws haunt the Breds in...

    “The difference was our free throws,” bemoaned Coach Larry Kendall after the Breds 54-53 loss to Scott in the 10th Region semi-final Monday night.  
    The game, played in the Field House at Mason County, saw Harrison County lose in a game that had eight ties and seven lead changes.  
    In the end, nine of 17 from the free throw line, including two misses with less than 30 seconds to play, cost the Thorobreds a chance to face Campbell County in Tuesday night’s championship game.  

  • Fillies tennis has high hopes,...

    The Harrison County High School tennis team has a plethora of upperclassmen with the Fillies and a squad of only four boys to tackle the season.  
    The first match is scheduled for Monday, March 16, on the Hilltop with Bourbon County and the teams are working hard in preparation.
    The Thorobreds return three players as freshman Luke Bradford along with eighth graders Isiah Stiltner and Boston Pergram bring the experience of 2014 to the courts this season.

  • Who should be in the Field of 68?

    I will have to give Mark Story of the Herald Leader credit for spurring me to write this article.  
    It was after I read his article that I thought, ‘How wrong can one guy be?’ and decided to write this.  
    His article stated that Murray State should not be left out of the NCAA tournament and Indiana and Texas put into the fray.  
    Heck no Murray State should not be in the tournament. But neither should Indiana or Texas. That would be unless they win their conference tournament, which they will not.  

  • Breds upset Mason County, faced...

    The Saturday evening match up saw five ties and six lead changes in the nip-and-tuck battle.
    Seniors Trenton Thompson and Robbie Stroub scored all of their first-half points in the opening quarter as the Breds hustled out to a 19-14 lead.

  • Fillies season ends with 60-42...

    The 38th District Champion Harrison County Fillies could not match up with the Lady Eagles of Scott High Tuesday night losing 60-42 in the 10th Region quarterfinals.  
    The Fillies’ season ends with a deceiving 10-21 record while Scott advances at 20-9.
    The Fillies jumped out to a 6-1 lead to start the game but the speed and physical play of Scott soon wore Harrison County down.  
    By halftime, Scott led 27-15 and the Fillies were in an uphill battle.
