    The win makes the season record 2-0 with the next game Saturday night at McCreary County Central (0-2).

  • Eagles glide past Thorobreds...

    The Scott High Eagles made a four-point half time lead a 14-point lead at the end of three quarters and went on to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds, 70-54 Tuesday night in Cynthiana.  
    The Breds’ inexperience reared its ugly head again in the third period as nine costly turnovers in the stanza helped limit the Breds to only seven points while the Eagles hit for 17.  
    “We played hard,” noted Coach Mike Reitz. “We have to learn to value each possession more and make better passes.  This will come with time.”  

  • Fillies begin new season with 53...

    The Piper Akin era began Tuesday night on the Hilltop with a hard-earned victory over the Frankfort Lady Panthers, 53-47.  
    The Fillies took the lead from the start and never trailed as they opened with a 5 to 0 run and never allowed the visitors to get closer than four points after the Lady Panthers’ Sheree Brown hit a three to cut the lead to 5-3.  
    Again the Fillies went on a run this time scoring 10 straight to take a 15-3 advantage.  
    The first year coach was obviously pleased to begin her career with a win.  

  • Thorobreds drop opener to Simon...

    The youth-laden Harrison County Thorobreds ran into a veteran group of Simon Kenton Pioneers Monday night as they lost the season opener 68-47.   
    The Breds held their own for the first half as they battled the eighth region favorite to a 31-all stand still.  
    The Breds actually out rebounded the bigger, more physical Pioneers in the first half while making some key shots to pull even at the end of the opening two periods.  

  • I’m ready for some season limits

    I love sports. I particularly like high school, most college sports, the NFL and major league baseball.  
    I wouldn’t give a plugged nickel for pro soccer or hockey. But even the sports I love need to cut back on their seasons.
    If you think about it, we are currently playing high school football, basketball and wrestling. There is college soccer, basketball, football and other college sports being played along with pro football and basketball. Pro basketball will go way into the baseball season next June.   
    It is just too much.

    Breds scrimmage at Rupp Saturday
    to open season
    The season didn’t open officially until Monday night, but the Harrison County Thorobreds had an exceptional opportunity to begin Saturday morning at Rupp Arena.  
    The Breds scrimmaged against the Green County Dragons coming away with a 41-27 victory. Green County, much like the Thorobreds, suffered severe losses by graduation and were playing five new starters. Harrison County took advantage of this and using pressure,, caused 19 turnovers 11 of them steals.  

  • Middle school begins boys’...

    Harrison County’s Middle School boys’ basketball season began Wednesday evening at the middle school with the Bracken County Polar Cubs as the opponent.  
    The seventh grade game opened the evening and it didn’t take long for Harrison County to establish superiority. Zack Pulliam scored eight of his team high 21 points in the opening period as the seventh grade Colts doubled the score 12-6 in the first quarter.   
    Brock Jenkins had nine in the second period as the lead was stretched to 10 points at the half, 29-19.  

  • Wrestling has mixture of...

    As 55-year veteran coach Russ Riegel puts it “Experience is the word. We have a really great bunch of athletes in grades six through 12. For the first time in my 18 years, we have a program of athletes who want to be wrestlers.”  
    Of course, some of the experience is in the coaching staff. Riegel’s 55 years (the last 18 at HCHS) and No. 1 assistant Luke Tucker’s eight years gives the Harrison County staff an edge on most of the competition.  

  • Cross Country awards program...

    The Harrison County Cross Country program held its annual awards program Saturday at the County Extension Office.
