  • Some odd and ends during the...

    I had several comments on last week’s article about how the grandchildren remind me and others of me.
    I appreciate the kind words and also appreciate that someone reads this. I am thankful for the ability to be around them to know what they are doing.  
    Several things of note happened that I want to comment on this week.  
    First thing is Stephen Moses and Lee Kendall being selected to the 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame. Moses was the best shooter that I have seen in the past 35 years of watching Harrison County basketball.

  • Cheerleaders disappoint in...

    Cheerleading is difficult to explain.

    Kendall, Letcher, Moses in 2011 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame Class
    Three of the most outstanding local basketball figures in the area were named to this year’s hall of fame class in the 10th region. Dr. Stephen Moses of Harrison County, Lee Kendall of Harrison County and Greg Letcher of Nicholas County are three of the newest members of this prestigious hall.  

  • Thorobreds, Fillies end regular...

    Friday night it was the Thorobreds winning with just less than two seconds left in the game and Saturday night the Fillies hit the winning basket with 10 seconds left to end the regular season on a high note.
    The Thorobreds evened their record to 14-14 going into the 38th District Tournament Friday night when senior guard Eric Sanders hit a driving lay up with 1.6 seconds on the clock to give the Breds a 68-66 win over Montgomery County.

  • Breds drop Senior Night game to...

    The Frankfort Panthers won their 20th game of the year Tuesday night as they hustled past the Harrison County Thorobreds, 69-59, on the Hilltop in Cynthiana.  
    The win gives Frankfort a 20-8 season record while the loss dropped Harrison County to 13-14 for the year.  
    The Thorobreds scored the first two points of the game, which would be their only lead of the game.   

  • Fillies win 2 of 3 games,...

    The Harrison County Fillies are getting things going the right way as the district tournament gets closer to tipping off.  
    The Fillies lost last Wednesday to St. Patrick, but then traveled to Paris and upset the Lady Hounds on Friday and romped over the Lady Colts of West Jessamine on Saturday.  
    The Fillies fell victim to foul shooting in the St. Patrick game as they were whistled for 19 fouls to the Saints’ nine leading to a big difference in free throw attempts.  

  • 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 seventh grade team earned the third spot by traveling to Nicholasville on Thursday and defeating the West Jessamine team, 41-31.  
    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.
