  • 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.  

  • Sports beat

    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.  

  • Thorobreds in championship of...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds came back from a 13-day lay off and played their way into the championship game of the North American Stainless/Carroll County Tourism Basketball Classic with two victories.  
    The Breds took the floor Monday against the 4-1 Barbourville Tigers in the second game of the first round.  
    Harrison County showed definite signs of rust as the team turned the ball over frequently beginning the game. Early in the second quarter they found themselves behind 26-13.

  • HCMS wrestlers off to fast start

    The Harrison County Middle School Wrestling team is off to a good start in the first half of the season.  
    After three consecutive weekends of travel the squad has come away with three top five finishes.
    Dec. 4 was a dual meet tournament at Woodford County with Boyle County, Anderson County, Conner and the home team, Woodford County. The meet opened with the Colts battling the perennial powerhouse Yellowjackets and falling in a tough match.  

  • Christmas week brings back fond...

    I just saw a segment of 60 Minutes featuring people with memories that were so detailed they could remember everything that ever happened to them and at exactly what time it occurred.  
    I can remember many things that happened in my youth especially at Christmastime. Christmas in my family meant Christmas Eve with the Aldridge family. Since my dad was one of nine children, there could be anywhere between 50 to 80 people in a small house though we never noticed it being crowded.
