  • 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.  

  • NCAA and Sweet Sixteen, it’s the...

    This is one of my favorite times of the year.  
    It’s when the high school players put it all on the line at Rupp Arena for the state championship and the college players do the same for the NCAA championship.  
    This year’s NCAA has a Cynthiana flavor as John Michael Reitz takes his training skills to Denver as the Morehead State Eagles battle the Louisville Cardinals, and both of the Hampton men will be officiating in the “Big Dance” -- John in Tampa and Brent in Chicago.

  • 'Breds & Fillies:...

    Cynthiana Democrat sports writer Mike Aldridge is in Pensacola, Fla., following the Breds and Fillies on their spring break tour.

    Mike will be sending updates on ballgames along with video of the players and coaches. Visit the website for the most recent happenings with Harrison County’s baseball and softball teams.  New photos will be added to the slide show at the left and videos will go at the bottom of the story, newest on top.

  • Breds fall to Cardinals in...

    On Jan. 19, George Rogers Clark’s cardinals rolled into Cynthiana and ripped the Thorobreds by a 73-55 margin in a game that wasn’t as close as the score indicated.  
    Friday’s regional battle was expected by many, including the Cardinal fans, to be more of the same.  
    The lay-down-and-die message never made it to the Thorobreds or the coaching staff at Harrison County though and the Thorobreds gave the state’s third rated team all they wanted and more in the 63 -53 tussle at the Mason County High School Field House.

  • What to do with scorers and the...

    The issue of where the score keeper and media people should sit came to a head Thursday night during the regional battle between Pendleton County and Montgomery County.  
    When Omar Prewitt was brought back into the game 40 seconds after he had been disqualified for his fifth foul, there was never a better example of how important it is to have communication between the official scorer and the visiting scorers.

    releases 2011 schedule
    On Saturday, March 5, the Harrison County track teams competed in the most prestigious indoor track meet in the Tri-State area as they battled in the Mason Dixon Games at Broadbent Arena in Louisville.  
    “We were excited to see how we would compete against the best teams in the state,” said Coach Danny Simpson.  “Our athletes did a great job and we had our best meet of the season.”

  • Lady Indians hold off Fillies,...

    The 2010-11 Fillies season ended Tuesday night as the Montgomery County Lady Indians defeated Harrison County 65-54 in the 10th Region Tournament.  
    The Fillies never led in the game, which had two ties in the first quarter, but it was far from being an easy night for the Lady Indians.  
    It was a night of runs as each team had scoring streaks that either kept the other team at bay or cut into a big lead to make a close game.
