  • Wrestling’s Border Battle goes...

    Dwayne Moore’s Senior Night, introduction of the middle school wrestlers and the match with rival Bourbon County made for an exciting night on the Hilltop last Wednesday.  
    The highly anticipated Border War match caused the venue to change from the Southside gym to the Harrison County High School facility to accommodate the crowd.  
    The night began with score keeper Amanda Lopez singing a stirring rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, which set the tone for the exciting evening of wrestling.  

  • Thorobred wrestlers finish...

    In a dual meet dominated by the powerful northern Kentucky schools, the Harrison County High School wrestling team finished second in a six-team meet. The meet was well run, taking four and one half hours to complete with each team wrestling the others.  
    Ryle High School was the overall winner followed by the Thorobreds.  
    The Breds were hampered all day with forfeits in three weight classes due to an illness, a wrestler competing in the middle school state meet and in the 140 lb class just no one to wrestle.

  • Colts muscle past Breds, 65-52...

    The team rebounding totals are really misleading for Tuesday night’s game between Harrison County and West Jessamine.
    The totals show the The team rebounding totals are really misleading for Tuesday night’s game between Harrison County and West Jessamine.
    The totals show the Thorobreds winning the battle on the boards when eye witness accounts would doubt the accuracy of the facts.  
    West Jessamine’s Colts dominated the Breds’ big men early as they ran out to a 25-14 first quarter lead.

  • Middle school basketball wrap up

    The Harrison County Middle School seventh and eighth grade boys’ basketball played three games each the first three days of February.  
    This number of games resulted from weather problems, which have hindered efforts to get these games played.  
    Each of the teams won two of the three games that they played.
    The seventh graders open the week with a 39-31 loss to the Scott County Middle Cardinals. In this game, the Colts jumped out to an early lead, but turnovers allowed the Cardinals to come back and take a 19-13 halftime lead.  

  • Football is over and baseball is...

    When the Super Bowl ended Sunday night, it marked the football season’s end and the beginning of baseball.
    Here in Cynthiana we have already had the Reds’ Caravan at Angilo’s, sponsored by the Red’s affiliate WCYN, and the Lexington Legend’s visit to Biancke’s last Thursday also in cooperation with the radio station.  
    Both of the visits and the end of football indicates that it is time to oil the glove and the batting gloves, polish the cleats and get ready for baseball.  

  • Thorobreds drop close game to...

    The Harrison County basketball Breds lost Tuesday on the Hilltop to the tough Bishop Brossart Mustangs 56-50.  
    The Breds led throughout most of the first quarter when they may have played their best basketball of the season.  They took as much as a seven point lead as they limited themselves to only two turnovers for the period and shot 50 percent from the field.  

  • Fillies lose at Clark County...

    Monday night the Harrison County Fillies met probably the best team in the 10th Region and came away with a 60-41 loss against the powerhouse Clark County Lady Cards.  
    The game was tied early at two, but the Lady Cards scored the next 16 straight and took a 20-3 first quarter lead.  
    The Fillies continued to battle, but the home standing Lady Cards were just too powerful and deep at every position.

  • HC grapplers 21-16 after tough...

    The Harrison County wrestling team traveled to Danville Saturday and finished third in its pool.  
    In the dual tournament set up, the top two teams from each pool go on to the championship round.  
    Harrison County was placed in pool A with five other top teams. They were Boyle County, Newport, Wayne County, Perry County Central and Anderson County. The six teams in pool A were the top teams there and were all in the same pool.

  • Pre-game ceremonies: The great,...

    In the past week I have witnessed the best pre-game ceremony ever, a touching and very appropriate one and one that I would describe as pitiful, disrespectful and just plain uncalled for.
    Being a little under the weather on Saturday, I stayed home, in the house all day except for going out to pick up the paper on the driveway.  
    If there would have been someone to do that I wouldn’t have done that either. I do not get sick often and therefore do not operate well when I do.

  • Fillies, Breds lose at Pendleton...

    It was all Pendleton County Friday night as they retired a jersey, honored a teacher/ administrator and won two ball games over rival Harrison County in the girl/boy doubleheader.  
    The Cancer Awareness Night games also featured a presentation by former UK player Mark Krebs about his book covering the struggles of his family with his mother’s cancer diagnosis and eventual death.  
    The Fillies and Lady Cats opened the evening with a game that, after a couple of early lead changes, was all Lady Cats.
