  • Breds coming together, win at...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds coupled the win at Pendleton County Friday with road wins at Fleming County on Saturday and Campbell County on Tuesday. The pair of wins gives the Thorobreds a 12-11 season record.  
    On Saturday the Breds came out a little flat after the win at Falmouth on Friday.  
    Harrison County took some questionable shots in the first period, which resulted in three-for-12 shooting for the period.  
    Meanwhile, Fleming County was making seven of 11 to take a 16-10 lead at the end of the stanza.  

  • Harrison County wrestlers place...

    The Harrison County wrestling Thorobreds finished higher than any other Harrison County wrestling team Saturday as they came in second in the Kentucky Wrestling Coaches Association State Duals.  
    The meet, which was held in Sturgis, Kentucky, featured an all star line up of teams from around the state competing in the small and large school categories.  
    The Breds were second to host Union County in the small team division.  
    Union County went on to defeat the winner of the large school division for the overall championship.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Last second basket gives Henry...

    The large Harrison County crowd that attended the game Tuesday night at Henry Clay came away with the same thought.  
    The Thorobreds snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  
    Harrison County, after trailing very early, led from the latter part of the first quarter until 2:55 was left in the game.  
    At that point, the Blue Devils took the lead 53-52.  Brock Jenkins then hit a three pointer to make the score 55-53 with just over two minutes to play.  

  • Fillies push Lady Camels, fall...

    The Harrison County Fillies trailed by as many as 10 points in the second half Monday night.  
    They rallied to cut the lead to one on two occasions but could not gain the lead in a 42-38 loss to Campbell County.  
    Free throws again played a large part in the Fillies loss as they made only four of 11 tries for the game.  
    Senior Whitney Gray, who led all scorers with 12 points, made all four of her free tosses and the rest of the Fillies were zero for seven.  

  • Two school records set in indoor...

    Senior Kassidy Cook set two Harrison County High School track records Saturday participating in an indoor meet at Mason County.  
    Cook won three events and finished second in one to lead the Fillies to a fifth place finish.  
    Harrison County took only a small group of athletes so team finishes are a bit misleading.  

  • The joy of being an athlete’s...

    This came to me partially during the trip back from Mason County Friday night.  
    I am writing on Monday morning when there is no school in Harrison County due to icy roads.  
    After trying to walk to the street, I totally agree on school being called today.
    I do question playing in Mason County Friday night. The weather people were calling for snow and increasingly more snow as the afternoon wore on and the weather pattern became clearer.
