  • Breds play for Gateway Classic...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds knocked off two teams in different ways Saturday and Sunday and will play Monday night for the Gateway Classic Championship.  
    The Saturday match up with Worthington (Ohio) Kilbourne saw the Breds come from behind to win 52-50.  
    On Sunday night, Harrison County built a big lead and then held off the Montgomery County Indians 52-45.  
    The Breds’ win over the Indians gives them a season mark of 7-5 going into Monday night’s championship game with Lincoln County (10-1).

  • Fillies finish with win in...

    After dropping close games to Powell County and Pendleton County, the Harrison County Fillies won the seventh place game in the Mingua Beef Jerky Classic in Bourbon County Sunday.  
    Harrison County beat district rival Nicholas County, 44-41, to end a five-game losing streak.
    The Fillies’ effort was suspect in the Friday match with Powell County as they were out rebounded by the much smaller Lady Pirates 35-33.  
    Once again in this game, Harrison County could not find the range from the field or the foul line.

  • Professional football, great for...

    The National Football League is the most popular professional sports league in the United States and second place is not even close.  
    Major League Baseball used to be but the game is too slow for many, especially the young, and there are so many games it drags on a little.  
    Football has always managed to leave the fans wanting one more game, which is the goal of every sporting venue.  
    Professional basketball has way too many games and while they deny it, the players only play hard in spurts and sometimes not until the playoffs.  

  • Middle school wrestlers win 2 of...

    The Harrison County Middle School wrestlers have started the season with four multi-team meets taking first place in two of them.  
    The team is coached by Barry Zumwalt, Daniel Martin and James Simpson.  
    The first meet of the season was in late November at the Woodford County Invitational.  The Colts finished fifth in a 15-team meet to serve notice of better things to come.  

  • Fillies lose two more home games...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued their busy pre-holiday schedule by playing host to Trimble County on Monday, Dec. 22.   
    The night started well for Harrison County as the junior varsity led by sophomore Emma Darnell’s 13 points outclassed Trimble County 30-13.  This was the second win in a row for the junior varsity to improve to 2-4 for the season.
    The Fillies could not maintain the momentum that the junior varsity began as they fell 47-38 to the Lady Raiders.  

  • Breds enter Christmas with 5-5...

    Harrison County’s Thorobreds split the last two games of the Mike Murphy Classic in Maysville beating Newport and losing to Scott High. This evened the season record to 5-5 as the Breds took a three-day break for Christmas.
    The Newport game may have been the most exciting game of the year to date as senior forward Trenton Thompson’s free throw with nine seconds gave the Breds the win.  
    The game featured eight ties and 16 lead changes as neither team led by more than six points.

  • Christmas time again

    Christmas is not my favorite time of the year, not because I don’t believe that it is Christ’s birthday, but for other reasons.  
    The commercialization of Christmas and the ridiculous buzz about not saying Merry Christmas because it may offend someone, makes me tired.  
    Personally, I think if one is so easily offended they need to join “Bubble Boy” somewhere in isolation.  
    However, I do like the sports on Christmas and during the Christmas holiday.

  • Harrison County wrestlers win...

    Injuries and illness left the Harrison County Thorobreds short handed and weakened Saturday as they wrestled in the Rumble in the Hive.  
    The premier event, which is hosted by Louisville Central, featured some good teams from Jefferson and surrounding counties.  
    The Thorobreds faced powerful Meade County and came away with a 13-to-66 defeat.  
    In this dual match, the Breds had to forfeit in five weight classes, some that when everyone is healthy are the stronger weights for Harrison County.
