  • Slucher returns to line up,...

    After sitting out two games with an injury suffered in the Highlands game, senior running back Nick Slucher returned to the Harrison County line up in a big way Friday night scoring four times in the Thorobreds’ 44-20 smashing of Pendleton County.  
    Harrison County scored three times in the first half after a sluggish start and then stretched the lead to 37-6 before the reserves came in to finish the game in the latter part of the fourth period.

    “I am very proud of this group of young men,” said Coach Nick Hill after the championship game loss to Montgomery County. “They could have laid down when the record was 3-7-2, but they didn’t. Instead they fought back and made a real run at the region championship.”
    The Harrison County Soccer Thorobreds began the game and played the entire match with an intensity that Coach Hill had not seen all season.

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The trip to Ireland had many good features including a visit to the Guinness Storehouse where a revolving bar gives visitors a bird’s eye view of all of Dublin.  
    In fact, in the first 36 hours of our visit I had made it to Guinness and the Jameson Distillery, which I imagined would be the highlights of the trip. I was wrong.  
    The people on the tour and the inhabitants of Ireland made the trip worthwhile.  That is saying something since we were on airplanes for more than 17 hours, which is not fun.

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team dropped a two-set match to Bishop Brossart last Tuesday to end a very successful season in the opening round of the regional tournament.  
    The district champion Fillies lost to Brossart  25-14, 25-16 in matches that could have gone either way.  
    Newport Catholic (23-6) went on to win the region as expected and will play Caldwell County (29-7) Friday night in the state tournament at Bellarmine.

    Cross country meet postponed until
    Thursday due to weather
    Coach Danny Simpson likes the Cynthiana Country Club course for a meet but the weather was just too bad to hold the annual Harrison County Invitational last week.  
    “It rained two inches on Wednesday and then was drizzling and cold Thursday so we decided to try for a better day,” said Simpson. “We want to give the athletes their best chance for success and even on this fine course today wasn’t it.”

    Harrison County’s Soccer Breds are advancing in the regional tournament after Monday’s defeat of the Pendleton County Wildcats,  2-1, in the opening round.
    “The game was very physical and played with a lot of emotion by both teams,” said Coach Nick Hill. “It was a hard-fought battle with a lot of ups and downs for both teams.”
    About 15 minutes into the game, Harrison County scored its first goal when Kyle Foster crossed a ball into the box and Jordan Gasser got just enough foot on it, to redirect the ball into the side net.
