  • Thorobreds drop close game to...

    The Harrison County basketball Breds lost Tuesday on the Hilltop to the tough Bishop Brossart Mustangs 56-50.  
    The Breds led throughout most of the first quarter when they may have played their best basketball of the season.  They took as much as a seven point lead as they limited themselves to only two turnovers for the period and shot 50 percent from the field.  

  • Fillies lose at Clark County...

    Monday night the Harrison County Fillies met probably the best team in the 10th Region and came away with a 60-41 loss against the powerhouse Clark County Lady Cards.  
    The game was tied early at two, but the Lady Cards scored the next 16 straight and took a 20-3 first quarter lead.  
    The Fillies continued to battle, but the home standing Lady Cards were just too powerful and deep at every position.

  • HC grapplers 21-16 after tough...

    The Harrison County wrestling team traveled to Danville Saturday and finished third in its pool.  
    In the dual tournament set up, the top two teams from each pool go on to the championship round.  
    Harrison County was placed in pool A with five other top teams. They were Boyle County, Newport, Wayne County, Perry County Central and Anderson County. The six teams in pool A were the top teams there and were all in the same pool.

  • Pre-game ceremonies: The great,...

    In the past week I have witnessed the best pre-game ceremony ever, a touching and very appropriate one and one that I would describe as pitiful, disrespectful and just plain uncalled for.
    Being a little under the weather on Saturday, I stayed home, in the house all day except for going out to pick up the paper on the driveway.  
    If there would have been someone to do that I wouldn’t have done that either. I do not get sick often and therefore do not operate well when I do.

  • Fillies, Breds lose at Pendleton...

    It was all Pendleton County Friday night as they retired a jersey, honored a teacher/ administrator and won two ball games over rival Harrison County in the girl/boy doubleheader.  
    The Cancer Awareness Night games also featured a presentation by former UK player Mark Krebs about his book covering the struggles of his family with his mother’s cancer diagnosis and eventual death.  
    The Fillies and Lady Cats opened the evening with a game that, after a couple of early lead changes, was all Lady Cats.

  • Breds start slow fall to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds came out of the locker room ice cold Tuesday night, fell behind Woodford County by as much as 13 points early and never could recover as they lost to the Yellowjackets 58-53 on the Hilltop.  
    The Thorobreds only made one field goal in 14 attempts in the first period to fall behind by 16-3 at the first period’s end.  
    The start was so devastating, in fact, that the Breds were not outscored in any other period, but never led in the game.  

  • Fillies win two at home over...

    The Harrison County Fillies improved their season record to 10-9 with home victories over Campbell County on Saturday and Bourbon County Monday night.
    The games were as different as the opponents as the Fillies stopped a Campbell County 15-0 start with a 55-49 victory Saturday night.  
    It was one day short of a month that the Lady Camels had blistered the Fillies by a 68-46 score in the Edwardo’s Classic at Pendleton County as they went on to win that tournament.  

  • Tri-meet with Scott and Anderson...

    It was state champion Brandon Barnett’s senior night on the Hilltop last Wednesday as the wrestling Thorobreds faced Anderson County and Scott County in a three-team tri match.  
    If only the Thorobreds could have matched their team captain and senior leader, the score would have been more favorable, but that wasn’t to be on this night.  
    Barnett pinned his two opponents on his special night in 28 and 42 seconds in the manner the Harrison County fans are growing to expect.  

  • Bad language nothing new, should...

    Poor John Calipari. He is more than likely in the most high pressure job in the country where the fan base is living in the prehistoric basketball ages expecting the world every year and he is being chastised for swearing at a player on national television.   
    Fans are generally in agreement that they like Calipari, some because anyone would have been better the Billy Gillespie, some because they didn’t like the type of offenses that either Gillespie or Tubby Smith used, but almost everyone likes him one way or the other.
