  • Saddled with injuries, Breds...

    With six players in street clothes on the side line, Coach Jim Carr had to wonder how many more players can be injured.  
    He found out Friday night when, as with the score tied late in the third quarter at 22-all, sophomore speedster Deshon Talbott went down with a knee injury and the Breds fell to the Mason County Royals 39-22 in Maysville.  
    The Breds seemed to lose focus for a short period of time, just long enough for the Royals to score twice and make the Breds go strictly to the air taking the visitors out of their game plan.  

  • Raising money for the food pantry

    The Harrison County High School Bred’s soccer team recently held a food drive to support the local Food Pantry. A generous amount of food items and $253 were presented to the pantry. Thanks to Walmart, Ken’s Market and all who donated to make the food drive a success.

  • Mike’s Minute

    Sports are a very important part of many people’s lives, including mine.  
    But I believe that there are occasions that call for remembering other things that are much more important. Such is the case this week when we reflect on the 11th anniversary of the cowardly attack made by Muslim radicals on New York and the World Trade Center.  
    The many people whose lives were lost and others whose lives were forever changed should be in our utmost thoughts and prayers during this week especially if not at all times.

    Thorobreds golfers continue
    struggles in two matches

    The Harrison County boys’ golf team traveled again to Mt. Sterling on Saturday and competed in the 25-team Montgomery County Invitational.  
    After playing within 14 strokes of the Indians in the last match at the Cynthiana Country Club, the Breds’ scores escalated to a 377 team score for a 22nd place finish of the 25-participating squads.  

  • Harrison runners second at...

    Tuesday, Sept, 4, was another hot, muggy day in central Kentucky, so the Harrison County cross country squad traveled to Woodford County for a four-team meet.  
    Both Harrison County squads finished second in the meet despite running their third meet in six days.  
    Ross and Harry Smith led the Breds as they finished fourth and fifth in a strong performance by the brothers.  
    The winning time of 17:52 was turned in by Adam Smith of Berea beating the Smith brothers times by a little more than two minutes.  

  • Soccer Breds win at Bourbon,...

    There were some similarities in the Thursday soccer match at Bourbon County and the home match Tuesday against Sayre.  
    Both scores were 1-nil after being scoreless at the half. In both games the Thorobreds started slow and after each game Coach Nick Hill was unimpressed with the results.  

  • Rough schedule continues as...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds continued their difficult early schedule Friday night as they visited last year’s 6A state runners up Scott County.  
    Though the final score was 61-6, the score really did not indicate the effort that the Thorobreds extended in the loss.  
    Scott County scored on its first possession as it took over on the Harrison County 5-yard line following a blocked kick.  
    The Thorobreds took the opening kick off to their own 30-yard line before giving the ball up with the punt.  

  • Cross Country teams travel to...

    On Thursday, the Harrison County cross country teams competed in the 12-team Chick-Fil-A Invitational at Asbury College in Wilmore.  
    The results were not as good as hoped. Although the athletes ran hard, they didn’t finish well. Both the varsity girls and boys finished 11th of the 12 teams.  
    Erin Bradford was the leader at the finish for the Fillies as she finished 32nd in 26:06 for the 5000M race. Brooke Frederick, 40th, Bailey Caudill, 54th, Caylin Mattox, 75th, and Tabitha Iles, 84th, were the top five finishers for the Fillies.  

  • Time to predict the Super Bowl...

    I believe that it is fun to predict what might happen given that no one knows who will be injured, fired or such as that.  I am going to do this for the NFL, broken down by division, until I get to the Super Bowl.  
    NFC East: Toughest division from top to bottom in the NFC.  
    I think the Eagles will win this division because they have the best coach and some great athletes.
