  • 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.

  • Heartbreak on the Hilltop,...

    Pendleton County led for one tenth of one second Friday night, but that was enough to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds in the final game of the 38th District Tournament 61-60.  
    The Thorobreds dominated the game until the middle of the fourth quarter, leading by 20 points once in the final period before the inability to make free throws cost them the game.  
    Harrison County jumped out to a 5-0 lead on a Tyler Wagner basket and the first of Dillon Pulliam’s six three pointers.  

  • The sun will come up; and come...

    If I am repeating myself from a time ago, please forgive me, but the boys’ district championship game begs for an old saying. When a person is young things seem bigger than they do when you look back on them after a few years.
    “Time heals all” and “The sun will come up tomorrow” are two old sayings that are frequently used after a particularly difficult time or event has taken place.

    Bowl game set for 2011
    football season
    The Harrison County Thorobreds football schedule has been released for 2011 and it features two bowl games for Coach Mark Carroll’s squad.  
    The first bowl game is the first-ever Thorobred Bowl, which will also have a corporate sponsor to be named later. This two-game bowl will feature the Rockcastle County Rockets facing the Sheldon Clark Cardinals in the first game and the host Thorobreds and the Grant County Braves in the nightcap.  

  • Senior Cheerleaders

    Harrison County High School seniors Niki Whalen and Julie Henson finished their high school cheerleading careers when the basketball season ended Tuesday night.

  • District champions

    The tournament is called the “second season” for a reason.  
    What happened in the regular season has little bearing on what happens when it is for all of the marbles.  
    The proof of this surely can be found in the games this season and Thursday night between Pendleton County and the Harrison County Fillies.  
    The regular season match ups saw the Lady Cats defeat the Fillies easily both times by more than 20 points.  
    Thursday night after a 2-2 tie, the Fillies led all of the way and three times by as much as 21 points.

  • Roberts, Barnes lead HC archers...

    Eighth grader Madison Roberts and freshman Justin Barnes took overall top shooting honors at the NASP 8th Region shoot last Saturday at Harrison County Middle School.  
    A strong performance by all three HC divisions (high, middle and elementary) produced a sixth straight region title for the middle school while the elementary and high school each captured their third straight.  

  • Fillies, Thorobreds advance in...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds advanced to the championship games of the 38th District Monday night as they each won easily over Nicholas County.  
    The Fillies jumped out to a 10-0 lead and were never threatened as the Ladyjackets were ice cold from the field and could not prevent the Fillies from scoring.
    Nicholas County managed only 10 points for the half as they made only three of 17 attempts from the field.  

  • Barnett second, Shirley loses...

    Defending State Champion Brandon Barnett fell one match short of repeating as Thomas Buckman of Union County won an 8-4 decision in the championship match late Saturday night.  
    Barnett had been the Brandon Harrison County was used to up to this match as he worked his way into the finals.  
    He opened in the preliminaries by pinning Richie of Louisville Doss in 1:43 and followed with a 2:59 pin of Lynch of Newport.  

  • Some odd and ends during the...

    I had several comments on last week’s article about how the grandchildren remind me and others of me.
    I appreciate the kind words and also appreciate that someone reads this. I am thankful for the ability to be around them to know what they are doing.  
    Several things of note happened that I want to comment on this week.  
    First thing is Stephen Moses and Lee Kendall being selected to the 10th Region Basketball Hall of Fame. Moses was the best shooter that I have seen in the past 35 years of watching Harrison County basketball.
