  • Hold your horses fans,...

    Listening to the announcers last night (Monday) during the rousing Boise State last touchdown drive, one would have thought that it was January 2011 and the national championship was being decided. 

    Sure the Broncos traveled across the country to play Virginia Tech on a neutral field in Landover, Md., and came away with a victory, but there are many things to consider. 

    First, as I said, this is September and no national champs in football are crowned in September.

  • Fillies soccer continues rough...

    After losing to Franklin County Thursday, 2-0, Harrison County Fillies Coach Kim Jenkins decided to try a new formation to generate more offense. 

    The Fillies were tied with the Flyers at the half nil-nil, but just could not score and Franklin County came away with the victory. 

    The Fillies then traveled to Bowling Green to play in the Purples Classic on Friday and played three games in 24 hours. The first opponent was the Lady Trojans of North Hardin, which came into the match with a 2-5 record, but defeated the Fillies 0-2.

  • Fillies fall to LCA Thursday,...

    The Harrison County Volleyball team keeps coming close, but was unable in the last two matches to pull out a win. 

    On Thursday, the Lexington Christian Lady Eagles visited the Hilltop and saw the Fillies take a hard-fought first set 27-25 to take a 1-0 lead in match play. However, the visiting Eagles came back for a 20-25 win in the second set to force the third. 

  • Shuttle service to be provided...

    A shuttle service will be available for the Harrison County – Newport Varsity Football game on Sept. 10, at the new Harrison County Athletic Complex.

    A shuttle bus will be located at the drive between Ingles Stadium and the Harrison County High School Student Parking lot. Shuttle service will begin at 6:30 p.m. The shuttle will leave every 15 minutes taking patrons to the Athletic Complex. The final bus prior to game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

    Junior varsity and freshman football

     

    handle Grant County

     

    In a rare Saturday morning game, the Harrison County freshman footballers defeated Grant County’s rookie Braves by a 16-6 margin at Ingles Field.  

     

    A pair of touchdown runs by DeShon Talbott and an extra point run by quarterback Zach Royce put the points on the board for Harrison County, which had a shutout until less than a minute left in the game when an ill-advised pass was picked off and ran back 60 yards by the Braves for their only points.  

  • Thorobreds ready to even their...

    Coach Mark Carroll will lead his football Thorobreds south about 13 miles Friday night to do battle with the 0-2 Paris Greyhounds seeking the Breds’ first victory of the young season. 

    Paris has been defeated by a total of 117-12 by Kentucky Country Day and Frankfort High in their first two outings, but Carroll is not over confident. 

    “As silly as this might sound,” the second year coach said, “they have just missed a lot of tackles, which has led to allowing all of those points. They have good speed and some talented players.”

  • Volleyball team beats Fleming...

    The Harrison County volleyball teams have been busy this past week, especially the non-varsity teams. 

    Last Thursday, all three Fillies squads played at Fleming County. The varsity won 2-0 (25-10, 25-10) to improve its record to 3-2 while Fleming County fell to 1-4 for the season. 

    In this contest, the Fillies were very aggressive scoring kills on 21 of their 42 attempts. 

    The Harrison County junior varsity improved to 3-2 as well as they also defeated Fleming County 2-0 (21-14, 21-13).

  • Fillies JV soccer wins first...

    The Fillies Soccer Junior Varsity defeated Frankfort High’s JV team Monday night 2-0 at LeBus Field. 

    The JV Fillies evened their season record to 1-1 with the victory, having lost last week to Boone County. Eighth grader Chelsea Ingram scored the first goal with 10:13 left in the first half on a power move up the middle and a kick into the corner last the Frankfort keeper.

    Thorobreds come back to take the match with Grant County 2-0

    It was a rough and tumble affair with both keepers making big stops all night as the Harrison County Thorobreds defeated the Grant County Braves 2-0 at Lebus Field on Tuesday, Aug. 24. 

    Fortunately for the home team, keeper Christian Carey stopped them all while the Grant County keeper let a shot by Kyle Foster in the first half and one by Taylor Bolin in the second half, into the nets for Harrison County goals. 

  • Marsh wins Frankfort meet to...

    In a busy first week for the Harrison County Cross Country team, junior Jacob Marsh took first place in the Frankfort All Comers Meet last Wednesday. 

    On a hot and dry day, both the Fillies and Breds varsity teams finished second to East Jessamine, but both squads gave a good accounting. 

    This meet also had races for the Harrison County Middle School teams as they matched up with seven other middle schools in both the boys and girls.
