  • Thorobreds lose two in early...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds gave a game away and lost another in the first games of the season in Florida this week.  
    The Breds fell to the Gulf Breeze Dolphins Monday night in an uncharacteristic display of poor fielding by a 5-3 score.  

  • Harrison County’s tennis team...

    Harrison County graduated the No. 1 Fillies doubles team in Polly Whalen and Jacqueline Young, the No. 1 Thorobreds singles player in Ross Smith and one half of the Breds No. 1 doubles team in Kalen Woosley.  
    The other half of that No. 1 doubles team, junior Ben McDonald, moved away so there are several holes to fill for second year coach Kara Mattox.  
    However, given these circumstances, the cupboard is far from bare.  

  • Florida trip entertaining but...

    The weather is wonderful and the hotel is great, but there is not a lot of time to relax and enjoy it.  
    Four grandchildren and a bunch of ball games does not allow for much “free” time.  
    I’m not complaining mind you, but when I am this busy little things set me off.  
    I am currently having problems with my iphone connection, which causes sending video issues and double and triple work, which sets me off.  

  • Thorobreds’ strength is depth in...

    When the football season was about half over, Harrison County Track Coach Robert Walker was a little down.  
    He had just witnessed half of his vaunted 400m relay team go down with knee injuries as Cory Nichols and Caleb Reeder were hurt during the pigskin season.  
    Couple this with the concern that club soccer might also take Josh Young and Ben Anness, the young and hard working talent, Walker was concerned about what the season might bring.  

  • Archers set sights on state...

    Coming off another dominating Region 8 sweep, Harrison County archers return to the competitive range at the Louisville International Convention Center March 29.  
    Almost 3,000 shooters from all over the Commonwealth look to descend on Louisville for this event. Harrison County, particularly the high school division, has high expectations individually and as a team.

  • Sports beat

    NKU softball improves to 14-8,
    7-1 in conference
    The Lady Norse of Northern Kentucky University improved their season mark to 14-8 with a sweep of Missouri S&T and a split with Drury last weekend. Harrison County alum Michelle Carson saw limited action in the four games playing third base in a back-up role for the Lady Norse.

  • Mike’s Minute


    The weather is wonderful and the hotel is great, but there is not a lot of time to relax and enjoy it.  
    Four grandchildren and a bunch of ball games does not allow for much “free” time.  
    I’m not complaining mind you, but when I am this busy little things set me off.  
    I am currently having problems with my iphone connection, which causes sending video issues and double and triple work, which sets me off.  

  • Defending champions have...

    When you are the defending state champion with the top rating in the state going into the season, the outlook should be rosy.  
    But as Coach Mac Whitaker explained, things aren’t always as they seem from the outside looking in.  

  • Fillies track returning veteran...

    Veteran track coach Danny Simpson returns 16 of the 21 starters from the regional team last year as the Fillies embark on the 2011 track season.  
    Gone are graduated runners Courtney Grannis, Ashley Lyons and Liz Ford, all of whom contributed to the team’s success last year.  
    “We didn’t lose many girls from last year, but the ones we did lose meant a lot to our team,” said Simpson.
