  • Middle school football teams...

    The Harrison County seventh grade football team saw its record drop to 4-1 for the season as they lost last Thursday to Bourbon County 30-20.
    The previous week on Sept. 8, the seventh grade squad improved to 4-0 as they defeated McNabb Middle by a 14-6 score.  Luke Slucher scored two touchdowns in this game and Malcolm Walker added an extra point.
    The eighth graders were on the Bourbon County three-yard line with a first down but could not score and fell to the home standing Colonels by a 28-24 margin to also sport a 4-1 record.  

  • Softball Fillies sponsoring...

    The most unusual fund raiser is being held by the Harrison County Softball Fillies to raise money for the upcoming softball season.  
    Potty Mania is being run by senior Fillies Tracey Hicks and Emalee Little along with other Fillies and is a fun way to raise money.  
    It works like this: A commode is placed in a yard and remains there until the home owner pays $10 to have it removed, pays $15 to have it removed and to designate the next victim  or pays $20 to have it removed, designate where it goes and it is guaranteed not to return.  

  • Fillies soccer loses 3-0 at...

    After three straight wins, the Harrison County Fillies went down to defeat last Wednesday night at the hands of the Montgomery County Lady Indians by a 3-0 score in Mt. Sterling.  
    “I told the girls that it was my fault that we lost,” said Fillies Coach Kim Jenkins. “They were not properly prepared for this match and that makes it my fault.”  

  • Thorobreds mercy rule Paris,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team improved to 3-7-2 with a win over Paris on Thursday and a tie with Model Tuesday night.  
    The Paris match was one that started slow, which concerned Coach Nick Hill.  
    “We are never sure which team is going to show up and the slow start worried me a little,” he said. “But we turned it on pretty quickly and made short work of the Paris team.”  
    Lance McIlvain, Josh Young and Grant Carr each scored in the first half as the Breds took a 3-0 lead into the intermission.  

  • Cross country runners post...

    Mason County’s course has always proven to be a fast course for Harrison County runners and Saturday was no exception.  
    Of course, the cooler temperature didn’t hurt any either as the varsity and middle school runners ran their better times of the year.  
    Freshman Brooke Frederick ran the 10th fastest time ever for a Fillies cross country runner as she toured the 5000M in 24:38.
    This was good enough for a 40th place finish in the 96-runner field.  

  • Breds fall to Colonels 35-28 as...

    Harrison County had a fumble and an interception in its last two possessions while Bourbon County scored to defeat the Thorobreds, 35-28, Friday night in Paris.  
    This was a record-setting night for Harrison County’s Nick Slucher as he broke the school record for all-purpose yards in a game and the career mark for kick-off return yardage. But all in vain.  
    Slucher had 362 all-purpose yards, which topped his own mark of 330 that was set last year against the same Colonels.  

  • Mike’s Minute

    If any or all of the expansion comes about that is being discussed, there are going to be some super conferences.  
    The way talk is today the Big East is going to suffer some losses and the remaining teams in the conference better get their collective bags packed to move themselves.  
    Over the weekend, Pittsburgh and Syracuse began to publicly make overtures toward the ACC and many, including Coach K, were welcoming them with open arms.  

  • Golf Breds finish sixth in...

    Harrison County seventh grader Reese Asher led the Harrison County Thorobreds to a sixth place finish in the Bluegrass Conference Tourney held last week in Mt. Sterling.  
    Asher shot a nine-hole total of 40 followed by fellow seventh grader Jake Jones and sophomore Myles Davis, who each shot 46.  
    Sophomore Sam Levi had a 48 to round out the scoring for Harrison County in the junior varsity affair.  

  • Fillies take third straight...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team edged Lafayette Monday night 1-0 at LeBus Field to win their third straight match and improve the season mark to 5-4-1.  
    The tough schedule that the young (for the most part) Fillies have undertaken this season is beginning to pay off as they are rounding into a team that can play the close game well.  
    Sophomores Haley Carr and Marly Jenkins combined for the goal against the Lady Generals as Carr buried Jenkins’ pass from the corner into the back of the visitor’s net.
