  • Score 'N' More
  • Wrestlers finish 9th at North...

    The Harrison County High School wrestling team sent a group of nine wrestlers to Radcliff Saturday to battle in the North Hardin Invitational.  
    Illness and injury have plagued the grapplers as of late and has severely limited practice and meet participation.
    Three members of Harrison County’s wrestling team continued Saturday to compile an outstanding series of matches for the season.  
    Kellon Williams finished in first place with a decision over Hunter Ruber of Walton Verona and a pin over Josh Mullins of Newport.  

  • HCMS cheerleaders finish third...

    Saturday at Eastern Kentucky University the Harrison County Middle School cheerleaders competed against the other 13 region winners from around the Commonwealth.  Only region winners are eligible to compete for the state championship and the HCMS squad won its regional title in November and went on to finish third Saturday.  
    The cheerleaders, coached by Kenzie Whalen Leathers, performed advanced stunt sequences and tumbling skills during their routine. They had nearly a clean routine until one side of the pyramid fell on the very last part of the routine.  

  • Colts play at home, Frankfort...

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts played host to Royal Springs Thursday and traveled to Frankfort and Paris on Monday and Tuesday as they continue a very busy schedule.

    Harrison County will have two Fillies players, Whitney Gray and Madison Philpott, on the Scholastic Ball Report this Saturday at 11:30 on WKYT Channel 27.  
    The show’s host, Gary Ball, contacted Coach Kim Furnish who will accompany the girls on Monday to inquire about the girls attending the program.      
    Gray, who is a senior, was a member of the Governor’s Scholar program last summer held at Murray State University. Whitney has a 4.1 GPA and has scored a 33 on the ACT.  

  • Was Sunday Peyton Manning’s last...

    Before I go into the demise of Peyton Manning I want to go into two other things.  
    First, rather than write an article about the change in the Harrison County Thorobreds roster, I am going to just comment with a few facts.  
    D.J. Jenkins is back on the Breds’ roster after attempting to transfer to play at Scott County.
    There will be no blame levied here.
    The KHSAA, after Harrison County appealed, ruled that he could not play at Scott County.  He is now enrolled at Harrison County High School and is eligible to play.  

  • Volleyball
  • First intercollegiate basketball...

    One of the student activities at MCTC/Licking Valley Campus is basketball. The team, the Hilltop Blues, has been playing an intramural schedule for the past two years. However, this week, Thursday, Jan. 15, at 6 p.m., the first intercollegiate basketball game is scheduled at City Hall.   
    The Hilltop Blues is a team made up of faculty, staff and students.
