  • Carr resigns as HCHS head...

    Harrison County is looking for a new football coach.  Jim Carr resigned Wednesday and told his players on Thursday.  
    Part of Jim’s reasoning was the fact that the head coach needed to be in the high school.  
    I agree, though I didn’t realize how important it was until we tried to do the job without a coach in the school.  
    I also believe that the new coach needs to have previous head coaching experience and if possible should be a graduate of HCHS.

    Freshmen open season with loss to Mason County
    The Harrison County freshman team traveled to Maysville Wednesday for their first game of the season.  
    Absent was first-year coach Colin Duffie, who was ill, so Thorobreds head coach Larry Kendall was pressed into duty. The Harrison County team struggled for the night with shooting accuracy and turnovers as they fell to the Royals, 51-24.  
    The Harrison County boys seemed out of sync without their coach and could not get into a routine.  

  • Harrison County Cross Country...

    The Harrison County High School cross country team held its awards ceremony last week. Coach Deanna Lunsford gave the awards to the following athletes:  Shane Palmer was honored with the senior award.  Palmer, Ross Smith and Abby Cooper received the Academic All State Awards.
    Awards were given to the most outstanding performer on the Fillies and Thorobreds. Cooper was first on the Fillies with Tamara Lunsford second.  The boys had a tie for first between Daniel Craig and Ross Smith with Shane Palmer finishing second.

  • Breds best Indians in overtime...

    Brock Jenkins hit a lay up with three seconds left in overtime to propel the Harrison County Thorobreds to a 74-72 win over Madison Central Monday night in Richmond.  
    Jenkins made two free throws with four seconds left in regulation. This put the game into overtime as the Breds lost a seven-point lead midway through the quarter and had to battle back.  
    Madison Central (2-2) jumped out to a 13-9 lead by the end of the first quarter as the Thorobreds shot only three of 15 from the field in the opening stanza.  

  • Breds bounce Bluejackets, lose...

    Harrison County’s Thorobreds didn’t look too smooth winning, but win they did Friday night over Nicholas County.  
    The very physical game produced a couple of technical fouls and a lot of contact in the 71-to-54 Thorobreds’ victory.
    Trenton Thompson scored 11 of his game high 17 points in the first quarter as the Thorobreds pulled out to a 20-13 lead after the first eight minutes were played.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • HCMS Colts struggle in games...

    In the eight games played since last Thursday by the Harrison County Middle School teams only the sixth grade team has won and then only one time.  
    The youngest of the Colts lost a 32-27 game with McNabb on Thursday but came back to defeat Scott County Monday night, 31-30.  
    Then the Colts lost to Robertson County for the second time this year by a 20-13 score Tuesday night.  
    One of the positive things about the sixth grade games is the balanced scoring. In each game at least four players scored and most of the time more.  

  • Thompson’s 33 points leads Breds...

    Senior Trent Thompson scored 22 points in the first half and finished with a game high 33 to lead the Harrison County basketball Thorobreds to a 64-48 win over St. Patrick Tuesday night on the Hilltop.
    The game was close throughout the first half with St. Patrick jumping out to as much as a five-point lead early before the Breds regained the lead at the end of the first quarter.  
    St. Patrick’s senior forward, Andrew Sticklen, scored 11 points in the opening period to put the Saints down only one point at 21-20 at the quarter’s end.  

  • Wrestlers finish fifth in 12-...

    Harrison County’s wrestling team, with varsity and middle school athletes, started the season with an impressive performance at Bryan Station Saturday.  The Thorobreds finished fifth in the 12-team meet.
    Five of the returning veteran wrestlers were undefeated while newcomers Chase Blanton and Malcolm Walker were also standouts, according to Coach Luke Tucker.  

  • Fillies roll over Scott County...

    Coach Kim Furnish’s Harrison County Fillies rolled out to a big lead and cruised to an opening night win over the Scott County Lady Cardinals Monday on the Hilltop.  
    The Fillies led at the end of each quarter expanding the lead in each eight-minute segment except for the fourth quarter. The Harrison County girls tired a little and the Lady Cards edged a little closer in the final 62-49 game.
    The second quarter was about two minutes old when the Fillies scored eight straight points to take a 13-to-12 advantage to 21-13.
