  • Harrison wrestlers Barnett,...

    The Region 7 wrestling meet at Dunbar Friday and Saturday decided who was to advance to the state meet this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Frankfort.  
    Two of the participants are no surprise as 189 lb defending state champ Brandon Barnett and the hard-fighting 112 lb Anthony Shirley will advance to the meet at the Frankfort Convention Center.  
    Barnett finished undefeated for the year at 41-0 despite most teams avoiding him during the season after he returned from his ankle injury.  

  • Middle school regular season...

    The seventh grade middle school Colts ended their regular season last week by winning the last two games and finishing third in the very tough Bluegrass Conference.

    The Colts led by seven points at the half only to see West Jessamine rally in the third period to take a one-point lead. The Colts tightened the defense and held their opponent to three points while they were scoring 11 to post the 10-point win.  

  • Are my grandchildren me made...

    Before I get to my topic, I want to say congratulations to Dillon Pulliam.  
    On Saturday, playing against LaRue County, Dillon set the single game freshman scoring record for Harrison County High School when he scored 29 points to lead the Thorobreds.  
    Pulliam made nine three point shots, which tied the school record and another field goal to total his points.   The previous freshman record was held by Tony Talbott, who scored 22 points in a game as a first year player. The three point co-record holder is Kris Reitz.

  • Thorobreds lose at Mason County...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds fell below .500 for the first time since the Bishop Brossart game Friday night as the Thorobreds were defeated 57-33 by the Mason County Royals.  
    The loss dropped the season record to 12-13 for the Breds while the Royals improved to 13-12. The cold shooting Breds took a 3-0 lead on Dillon Pulliam’s three pointer and played the game tight until half way through the first period when the Royals took the lead at 7-6 and never trailed again.

    Defense and team play leads Breds over Deming Thursday 71-62
    The 38th District became more confusing Thursday night as the Harrison County Thorobreds travelled to Mt. Olivet and beat Deming 71-62.  
    Deming defeated Pendleton County last week and Pendleton County defeated Harrison County the week before which leads to the opinion that the district championship is up for grabs.  

  • Homecoming is a sweep for...

    Homecoming royalty Jessica Clevinger and Shane Fowler witnessed a double-header sweep by the Fillies and Thorobreds Friday night as Harrison County took both games from Nicholas County.
    The Fillies used a quick start to bury the Lady Bluejackets early and were never threatened in their 48-33 victory.  
    Juniors Kelsey Cummins and Mariah Nichols scored six points each to help the Fillies to a 17-5 lead at the end of one stanza.  

  • 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.
