  • 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. 

  • A tale of two halves: Breds fall...

    By Mike Aldridge

    The Harrison County Thorobreds dug themselves a hole Friday night in their battle for a home game in the upcoming playoffs. 

  • Tailgating on the Hilltop, let...

    Some friends of mine go to Commonwealth Stadium at 10 a.m. for a 7:30 p.m. kick off and another friend and his lovely wife have a blue bus that goes up sometimes on Friday night for a Saturday game. 

    What in the world?!! You might say. There must be something going on besides football.

    Absolutely not. It is football college style and they are going so early and buying a bus and painting it blue, redecorating with a sofa and recliners and other home-style objects so they will be ready to tailgate.

  • Playoff time and great memories

    The playoffs are set and the eight teams left will decide this year’s championship. 

    I think that the American League is wide open with Tampa Bay maybe the slight favorite. The National League has the Phillies as a clear cut favorite but the Giants could come in to surprise. 

    It will be really interesting with the World Series favorite being from the American League unless the Phillies do win the National League.  Then the Phillies should be the favorite due to H2O, Halladay, Oswalt and Hammels, the pitching trio who could dominate any team.
