  • HCHS football team prepares for...

    Friday night at 7:30 p.m. the first look of the year at the football Thorobreds will take place in Ingles Stadium.  
    The football Breds will divide into two fairly equal teams and go at it for four eight-minute quarters officiated by a regular crew from the Central Kentucky Football Officials Association.  Other than the time per quarter, which is normally 12 minutes, the game will be played with nearly real game procedure.  

  • Volleyball season opens Tuesday...

    Coach Bill Faulkner faces many unknowns as he and the Harrison County Volleyball team hit the floor Tuesday night against St. Patrick’s on the Hilltop.  
    Gone are seven seniors from last year’s 29-9 district champion team.  
    Six of the seniors started every game last year with the seventh, Brittany Richardson, suffering an early season-ending injury.  
    The six seniors are Sara Barnett, Emily Cassell, Allison Cordray, Ashley McCarty, Jill Mounts and Madeline Schroeder.  

  • Vera Reed Tournament
  • The Olympics, then and now

    I have been watching the Olympic Games since I was 11 years old and can remember much of what happened in my early life.  
    The Games are different now with less obvious political overtones being one of the pluses while apathy being a minus.  
    Maybe we are not so different from the Soviet bloc of old which makes the athletes less endearing as they go about the “games” to gain personal fame and fortune.  

  • Harrison County cheerleaders set...

    Harrison County Cheerleader Coach Jessica Reynolds doesn’t want to rest on the laurels of last year.  
    “We had a wonderful year last year finishing fifth in the nation and sixth at state, but we cannot be satisfied with last year’s accomplishments,” she said Monday night. “It won’t be easy to improve but we love a challenge.”
    The second-year coach smiled as she stated what she hopes to see from this year’s squad.
