  • Second quarter dooms Fillies at...

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Brooksville and lost their battle with the Polar Bears, 51-37, last Wednesday night.  
    The Fillies were facing one of the better players in the 10th region in Sara Sticklin, the six-foot junior guard, along with a considerable disadvantage in height. Despite this, Harrison County jumped out to an early 4-0 lead and battled even for the most part in the first period trailing by only four at the break.

  • Thorobreds start fast, hold off...

    The Augusta Panthers may have been a slight favorite heading into Tuesday night’s battle with Harrison County, but the start of the game doomed them to failure.  
    The Thorobreds scored the first eight points of the game and jumped out to a 12-point lead at the end of the first period.
    Harrison County hit on 44 percent of its field goal attempts in the opening stanza to 14 percent for Augusta.  
    The Breds also dominated the boards early as well as the entire first half taking a six-rebound margin into halftime.

  • Fillies win two of three to...

    The Harrison County Fillies completed 2010 by splitting the four games they played in the Paris-Bourbon County Holiday Classic last week.  
    They opened the tournament with the game reported last week, the 60-45 loss to Ohio County. The Fillies battled the Bell County Lady Cats on Thursday morning after the Region 13 power lost a tough game to Lafayette 49-35 in a game where they could not buy a basket early.  

  • 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.
