  • Cross country season ends at...

    “The season ended a week early this year for the cross country team,” lamented Coach Danny Simpson. “I’m proud of our team and they did a great job, but we just didn’t have it today.”   
    The Fillies and the Thorobreds cross country squads traveled to Covington Saturday and in the bitter cold fell a little short of qualifying anyone for the state meet next week.  

  • Holmes routs Breds 56-8 to win...

    The extra ordinary situations that would have had to take place for the Harrison County Thorobreds to host a first round playoff game all started with “when we beat Holmes.”  
    Strangely enough, the other circumstances happened, but the Breds fell to Holmes so they will be on the road Friday as the playoffs begin.  
    Friday’s game was not in doubt for long. After the Breds took the opening kickoff back to the Holmes’ 48 on a nice 26-yard return by Nick Slucher, they failed to gain a yard and punted.  

  • Cross country finishes regular...

    Harrison County’s Cross Country teams finished the season Saturday in a meet that had a most unusual format.  
    In the KTCCCA Meet of Champions at Masterson Station Park, each team member ran in his or her grade level instead of running all in one group.  
    “I was happy with the results,” said Coach Danny Simpson. “There were some big, tough races, but we had some of our best times of the year.”  

  • Football is getting tougher

    Beginning next season, the Harrison County Thorobreds football district will be somewhat more difficult.  
    Next year, Harrison County’s district loses Bourbon County and Franklin County and gains Covington Catholic and Fort Thomas Highlands. To put this into perspective, I’ll give the ratings as they stand this year.  

  • HCHS bowling teams ready for...

    Coach Kurt Burgan and his Harrison County Bowling Team are preparing for another long and tough season of bowling.  
    “Even though the girls are young, we have some real potential, and the boys are almost all back from last year,” said Burgan. “We should be ready to make a run at the conference title by the end of the season.”  

  • Fillies Basketball has Shoot-a-...

    New Fillies’ Head Coach Piper Akin, her staff and the 2010-11 Fillies held a shoot-a-thon Friday to raise money for cancer research.  
    The Fillies raised money from sponsor pledges as they shot 100 shots from different locations on the floor.  The girls raised $225 for their efforts, which will go to the Breast Cancer Foundation.  

  • Middle school basketball girls...

    Playing in the Bluegrass Middle School Conference, Harrison County’s seventh and eighth grade teams wrapped up the season this week as the eighth played in Richmond and at Elkhorn Middle School. 

    The seventh grade finished their season placing third in the northern division of the conference. 

  • Harrison Co. hosts Cross Country...

    “Sometimes hosting a cross country meet is like homecoming,” said Coach Danny Simpson.  “Athletes are excited to be running at home and they lose focus. I give our teams credit, they helped run the meet, but they gave great efforts in their races.” 

  • One more baseball memory and...

    This year’s World Series features two teams who seemingly are not often in the Fall Classic.

  • Fillies fall in volleyball semi’...

    The Harrison County volleyball Fillies fell in straight sets Wednesday night to the Ft. Thomas Highlands Bluebirds to end their season. 

    The Fillies complete the year with an outstanding 25-12 record, winning the district and advancing to the semi finals of the 10th Region.
