  • Fillies run past Beechwood in...

    The first scrimmage of the season for the Harrison County basketball Fillies was held Saturday at Scott County High School.  
    The Fillies’ opponent was the Lady Tigers of Beechwood High School from the ninth region who is coming off a 17-11 season in 2010-11.  
    The Fillies started the game with a little show of nerves, but soon settled down and worked through the jitters.  

  • Thorobreds have high hopes as...

    Mike Reitz enters his 39th year of coaching this year with a highly regarded squad of Thorobreds returning to the Hilltop to try for another 10th region title.  
    Only one senior graduated from last year’s 15-16 team, point guard Eric Sanders, which lends much hope for a successful season.  
    The senior class has three veterans though one has not played much.  
    Three-year starter Caleb Ford is an all region player from a year ago leading the Thorobreds in scoring with 16 points per game in 2010-11.  

  • Local students participate in...

    Macy Robles and Mackenzie Shepard, Harrison County Middle School, and Justin Barnes and Lauren Shepard, Harrison County High School, had the opportunity to shoot in competition at the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) World Archery Tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla.

  • There should have been a quicker...

    Last week we all should have been focused on being thankful for the veterans who gave their all and continue to do so for our country.  
    There were many different ceremonies before the college games and professional games that were played this weekend, but none was any better than the one at Williamsburg High School Friday night.
    I was part of the officiating crew for the second round playoff game at the Whitley County school and witnessed this ceremony.

  • Sparks accepts position as...

    One of the rewards for a parent or a grandparent comes when an offspring takes advantage of the benefits they have earned or been given and makes a success of their life.
    Austin Sparks graduated from Harrison County High School in 2005 having lettered in baseball and golf while also maintaining a more than acceptable grade point average.  
    The son of Ray and Jennie Sparks and the grandson of Fannie and Joe Pat McKee and Lee and Nona Sparks, Austin was an honor role student and was active at Cynthiana Baptist Church while in high school.  

  • Thorobreds end season with 59-6...

    If one of your buses breaks down on the way to the game that is probably not a omen that better things are in store.  
    That was the case Friday night for the Harrison County Thorobreds football team.  One of the three buses broke down around Morehead causing the team to have to pile into the two remaining buses along with all of the equipment and finish the 80 or so miles to Ashland.
