Today's Sports

  • We need to go back to...

    There are many reasons that I believe we need to go back to having intramural teams in the seventh and eighth grades.  
    The first reason and probably the most important is to have more of our youth involved in an extra curricular activity.
    Young people change a great deal in the years between sixth grade and the end of high school, and the way it works right now, once the “selection” of the traveling squads is made that’s all there is for the students who are not picked.  

  • Breds’ victory chances run afoul...

    After dropping a close game to Lewis County and routing Morgan County, the Harrison County Thorobreds were facing the task of playing the home team, the Polar Bears, in Wednesday’s game in the National Bank Classic.  
    The Breds were no match for center Todd Jefferson as the 6-foot-5 senior scored 30 points for the game, 18 in the first half as the Polar Bears took a 40-31 half time lead.  
    Senior guard Andrew Cummins added 20 points in the 68-63 Bracken County victory.

    1991 Regional Champions to be honored
    at Jan. 15 basketball game
    The Harrison County High School Regional Champs will be honored Saturday, Jan. 15, during the Williamstown game.  
    There will be a reception for the players, cheerleaders, coaches and support staff as well as a video tribute to the Thorobreds.  There will also be videos of the 37th District and 10th Region Championship games.  
    Recognition of the participants will be made between the junior varsity and varsity contests.  

  • Thorobred wrestlers wrap up...

    The Region 7 super duals were held last week at Henry Clay High School on Wednesday and Thursday.  
    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestled five matches on each day, a grueling schedule.  
    Lafayette was the surprise winner of the meet defeating perennial power Woodford County with the host Blue Devils finishing third.  
    Harrison County was in the middle of the pack winning five matches and losing six.  

  • Profile of an assistant

    At the suggestion of one of the varsity coaches, I am going to do a series of articles on the assistant coaches of the various sports at Harrison County High School.
    The first coach is Fillies Basketball assistant Kim Furnish.  
    Kim is the youngest child of Jim and Teresa Furnish and a 2002 graduate of Harrison County High School.  
    She played basketball at Harrison County for Coach Mac Whitaker and started on both the 2000 and 2002 Regional Champion teams.  

  • Breds in Bracken tournament,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are finishing 2010 by playing in a tournament in Bracken County.  
    The tournament began on Monday with the Breds facing the Lewis County Lions of the 16th region at 4:45 p.m.  
    The Lions brought a 5-4 record into the game with a line up that included eight seniors to face the inexperienced Thorobreds.
    It didn’t take long for the Lions to show their poise and senior leadership as they handled the Harrison County trap and press with little difficulty.  

  • Ohio County too much for Fillies...

    The three-time defending third region champion Ohio County Lady Eagles had their hands full for three quarters of the game before pulling away from the Harrison County Fillies, 45-60, Tuesday night.  
    This was the last game of the first day of the Paris-Bourbon County Holiday Classic held at Bourbon County High School.   
    The Fillies led at the end of the first quarter by one as both teams had trouble getting going.  

  • New Year’s resolutions or how...

    2010 is nearing its end and a lot of people at the end of any year make a list of changes or improvements that they hope to make for the New Year.
    I am going to list some sports related changes that I would like to see along with some others that I would like to make for me and others.
    The first change I would like to see is all sports to get rid of challenges of the officials’ calls by coaches.

    Gallatin Co. runs past short handed Breds 71-45
    The Harrison County Thorobreds, playing their third game in three days, came up short last Wednesday night as the Gallatin County Wildcats won the 2010 North American Stainless/Carroll County Tourism Classic championship game 71-45.  

  • Fillies split games in Pendleton...

    The Harrison County Fillies won on Monday and lost on Tuesday in the Edwardo’s Classic Tournament in Falmouth.  
    The tournament is actually a round robin affair with the Fillies playing Grant County, Pendleton County and Campbell County in successive nights.
    The junior varsity squads also play so it is an excellent opportunity for all of the teams to get some work in and gain experience.  
    The Monday night battle was a tale of two halves as the Fillies were lethargic to start the game with the Lady Braves of Grant County.
