  • Middle School teams split with...

    The eighth grade Harrison County Colts picked up their first Bluegrass Conference win Thursday night as they edged the West Jessamine Colts, 57-55, in a hard-fought contest.  
    The game was close throughout as West Jessamine led by four at the end of the first period and by one at the half time intermission.  
    The Harrison County team had an individual player get hot in each different quarter to lead the team.  

  • Wrestlers lose tight match to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team came close to winning again, but fell short as they dropped a dual match to Henry Clay, 30-43, Tuesday night.  
    The night started out slowly as the weigh-in scheduled for 6 p.m. did not take place until nearly 7 p.m. as the Henry Clay wrestlers arrived individually and sporadically.  Once the weigh-in was out of the way, the match started with the 130 pound class.  
    In this match, eighth grader Noah Mitchell was pinned by Ayoub of Henry Clay with 3:29 gone in the match.  

  • What I know, what I think

    Risking a copyright infringement with Mark Story I have opinions on some stories that have made the news lately.  I believe that Story will overlook this even if there is a similarity to some of the structure of his column.  
    Story’s father, Ray, was a friend of my late brother Jim when my brother was chairman of the Hardin County School Board.

    Bowlers split with Bourbon County Sunday
    The Harrison County bowling team split its matches with Bourbon County Sunday, but the girls’ team is coming closer to winning each week.  
    On Sunday, the Lady Colonels edged the Fillies bowlers by only a 3-4 score winning total points by only 172 pins. The Fillies took the second and fourth head-to-head matches and the first Baker’s game. They only lost the second Baker’s game by five pins or the total pins would not have mattered.  

  • Reds Fest 2010-11

    On Friday night I traveled north to the Duke Energy Center to participate for the second time in Reds Fest.  
    Though it may be hard to believe, the Reds actually want Ray Sparks and me to be part of the show as we interview Reds players in front of a live audience.
    This year we started with Bronson Arroyo followed by Jay Bruce and Mike Leake.   
    One of the best parts of this experience is how truly nice these men are to us and to the fans that stand and listen to the interviews.

  • Harrison’s short handed...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team began the season Saturday as it hosted the Rumble on the Hilltop.  
    Ten teams braved the cold and the snow, which greeted them as they began their trip to Cynthiana.  
    Assistant Coach Luke Tucker was in charge of the tournament and worked with the teams to keep the matches going and allow for a good tournament.  

  • Fillies make it two straight...

    The 2010-2011 Fillies’ season  continued on the right path Monday night as the Harrison County girls won a road game at Bourbon County, 54-45, over the Lady Colonels.  
    The win makes the season record 2-0 with the next game Saturday night at McCreary County Central (0-2).  
    The loss dropped the Lady Colonels to 1-2 after defeating Deming and losing to Maysville St. Patrick, both on the road.

    Winter tennis team tops Scott County in weekend match
    Charlie Smith, Ben McDonald and Jacob Markley continue the winter tennis season with a team victory over Scott County this weekend.

  • Eagles glide past Thorobreds...

    The Scott High Eagles made a four-point half time lead a 14-point lead at the end of three quarters and went on to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds, 70-54 Tuesday night in Cynthiana.  
    The Breds’ inexperience reared its ugly head again in the third period as nine costly turnovers in the stanza helped limit the Breds to only seven points while the Eagles hit for 17.  
    “We played hard,” noted Coach Mike Reitz. “We have to learn to value each possession more and make better passes.  This will come with time.”  

  • Fillies begin new season with 53...

    The Piper Akin era began Tuesday night on the Hilltop with a hard-earned victory over the Frankfort Lady Panthers, 53-47.  
    The Fillies took the lead from the start and never trailed as they opened with a 5 to 0 run and never allowed the visitors to get closer than four points after the Lady Panthers’ Sheree Brown hit a three to cut the lead to 5-3.  
    Again the Fillies went on a run this time scoring 10 straight to take a 15-3 advantage.  
    The first year coach was obviously pleased to begin her career with a win.
