  • Volleyball Fillies district...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball program is in its 12th year compared to the northern part of the region where they are in their 45th or so year.  
    Nevertheless, the improvement continues with Coach Bill Faulkner’s squad as last year they were 25-12 with a district championship and a semi-final berth against Ft. Thomas Highlands.
    The challenge for this year’s version of the Fillies volleyball girls is to continue the progress despite losing three starters from last year.  

  • Cheerleaders at a baseball game...

    I really appreciate the Harrison County cheerleaders and all of the hard work that they put into what is almost always a successful season.  
    I admire DeDe Shirley not only because she puts up with Greg but because of all of the hard work that she put into the cheerleading program while she was the guru.  
    I know that the coaches before her, Barb Snopek, Debbie Schmidt, Cathy Slucher, Jenny Nichols and all of the others did a great job of putting HCHS on the cheerleading map.

  • Thorobreds’ offense hopes to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds face a daunting schedule this season even more so with the addition of AAA state runner-up Belfry and must figure out a way to score more points.  
    One way is to improve the passing accuracy of returning starting quarterback Joe Korona.  
    “Joe’s pass completion percentage is a little misleading,” said third year Thorobreds coach Mark Carroll. “We had several dropped balls and ill run pass routes which led to incompletions that were no fault of Joe’s.”  

  • Get out your Hygrometer, it’s...

    Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it, as has been said by many and I’m sure Will Rogers or another famous wit probably said it first, but isn’t it true?  
    The heat of this summer seems to be worse than some others and it has wreaked havoc upon the coaches of all of the fall sports.  
    Practices have become very difficult to hold without rescheduling, having practice later in the day or having it inside.
