  • Cross country opens season with...

    Coach Danny Simpson liked what he saw in the first week of competition for the 2011 Harrison County High School and Middle School cross country teams.  
    They opened the week with a dual meet in Frankfort with Scott County where first place was taken by Harrison County in both the boys and girls races and finished the week with a good showing in a large meet in Covington.
    Tuesday was to be an all comers meet and several middle school teams were there, but Scott County and Harrison County had the only varsity teams.

    Middle school volleyball team
    defeats West Jessamine in opener
    The Harrison County Middle School volleyball girls opened the season at home Monday night with a victory over West Jessamine in both the varsity and junior varsity matches. The young Fillies, who are coached by Whitney Criswell and Lonnie Tolson, defeated a very tough experienced program in West Jessamine.

  • Thorobreds open season with 33-...

    Harrison County was 8-0 in its football win column against Grant County going into Saturday night’s Hometown Pharmacy/Thorobred Bowl tussle with the Braves.
    That record can now be 9-0 as the Breds rolled up 455 yards of total offense in a thorough 33-14 whipping of the neighbors to the northwest.  
    Senior quarterback Joe Korona was named player of the game for the Breds as he threw for 164 yards and ran for another 118 to lead the way for the Harrison County squad.  

  • Soccer Breds close out Thorobred...

    Coach Nick Hill was upbeat yet philosophical after the Thorobreds won their first match of the season in three tries on Saturday night.  
    “We could have been three wins and no losses if we would have played like we did tonight,” he said. “The players realized that the modified kickball they were playing was not going to win anything.”  

  • Fillies soccer loses to Boone,...

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Boone County last Wednesday and lost a 2-0 battle with the Lady Rebels.  
    Boone County scored early and the Fillies battled back with several near misses on goal during the match. Boone County scored again with four minutes to play with their second goal to pull out the victory.  
    The Lady Rebels stand at 3-1 for the year after Monday night’s 6-0 defeat of Fillies’ region rival Montgomery County.
    Monday night the Fillies played host to the undefeated Lady Jaguars of East Jessamine.  

  • Cheerleading experience great...

    I want to cover several different areas in this column and will start with the cheerleader camp held last week that culminated with the little ones getting to cheer at halftime of the Harrison County/Grant County football game.  
    My granddaughter, Cecilia, attended and participated in the camp and I believe was the youngest one there at just barely 4. She had a great time and was following along with the varsity cheerleaders pretty well the best I could tell.

    Volleyball team remains undefeated
    The Harrison County volleyball team rolled to a two-set victory Thursday night over a talented Fleming County squad 25-18 and 25-13. The second set was 17-5 when Coach Bill Faulkner began substituting more freely to gain experience for his younger players.  
    “We came out a little flat in the first set against really good competition,” said Faulkner following the game. “I reminded the team that we had worked too hard to play like this and they turned it around in the second set.”
