  • Thorobreds third, Fillies fourth...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County track team continued to find success in the early meets this spring as both the Fillies and Thorobreds finished near the top in the Montgomery County Invitational Track Meet.  
    The 12-team field was made up of AAA, AA and A teams with only the AAA teams besting the Harrison County athletes.  
    The Fillies’ fourth place finish was behind Henry Clay, Woodford County and Bryan Station in this meet as Henry Clay won the meet by only three points over Woodford County.

  • Thorobreds win fifth straight...

    Senior Justin Nutter got his first start on the mound Tuesday and things didn’t go exactly as planned as the first-year Thorobred was wild, walking three, hitting one batter, giving up two hits and one run in two and one third innings.  
    On the other hand, the struggles on the hill didn’t bother his hitting any as he went three for four and drove in four runs in the Thorobreds 9-1 defeat of the Fleming County Panthers Tuesday in Flemingsburg.  

  • Fillies battle Grant County to 7...

    The Harrison County Fillies battled the Lady Braves of Grant County Thursday night in Dry Ridge to an unusual verdict in high school softball.  
    The game ended in a seven-all tie due to darkness. Grant County does not have lights.    The tie makes the Fillies record 0-1-1 while Grant County is 1-1-1.  (Since this game the Lady Braves have won four in a row and now stand at 5-1-1).  

  • Tennis team bounces Bourbon Co....

  • Carr new football coach at HCHS

    When the search for a new football coach began at Harrison County, one name was heard often among the people who were on the outside looking in.  
    That name was Jim Carr.  
    Carr has been named and has accepted the job of head football coach at Harrison County High School and is beginning to move forward.  
    He began Monday afternoon by holding meetings with the returning high school and middle school players.  At each school the principal introduced Carr to the players.

  • Now it’s baseball season

    With baseball’s opening day only a little more that a week away (at the time of this writing), I am getting excited about another year of ups and downs for all of the fans of Major League Baseball.  
    There has been a great deal of movement by players from team to team in the off season and dollars thrown around like confetti.  
    During the time between the last out in the 2011 World Series and 2012 spring training, the Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers alone spent more than one half billion dollars on player contracts.
