  • Breds finish fifth in ‘Rumble on...

    “I thought we wrestled well, but I am not happy with the results,” said first-year head coach Luke Tucker. “We will have to continue to practice hard in order to improve.”  
    Tucker’s youthful grapplers took one championship and three runners up in the eight-team meet, which was won by Scott High of Covington.  
    Senior Eric Kiskaden was the lone winner for the Breds as he rolled through the 195 lb class to win the title.  

  • Bluegrass Conference play...

    The Harrison County Middle School eighth grade basketball team remained undefeated in Bluegrass Conference play as they won games with McNabb Middle School and Powell County.  
    Coach Jamie Cases’ stalwarts started slowly on Thursday but poured on the coal in the second half to handily defeat McNabb 53-33.  
    Jovon Williams hit for 16 points to lead the Colts while Zach Pulliam was also in double figures with 12 points.

    The high school football season is over now with state champions crowned in all six classes last weekend in Bowling Green.  
    I was right on five of six, missing the Hazard win over Mayfield in Class A. Three of Harrison County’s opponents from last season were in the finals with only Highlands winning a championship.

    Senior Cody Chambers couldn’t miss Tuesday night as his 23-point effort led the Simon Kenton Pioneers to a tight 63-61 win over the Harrison County Thorobreds in Independence.  
    Despite the fact that the Breds shifted the defense to Chambers’ side of the floor he still made contested shots that led to a 40-32 halftime advantage for the home team.
    The second half saw the Breds switch to a match up zone playing much tougher defense causing the Pioneers to become very deliberate taking only close-in shots.  

  • Tucker named Harrison Co. High...

    Gene Bartow, Joe B. Hall and Mike Davis have nothing on Luke Tucker. Each of them were chosen to follow a legend in coaching when they assumed their respective jobs at UCLA, Kentucky, Indiana and Harrison County.  
    Tucker was named this week to succeed Russ Riegel as head coach of the Harrison County Wrestling Thorobreds. No one is more appreciative of his position than Tucker.  

  • Football winding down, it’s a...

    At the end of this week, high school football will wrap up another season and the only local team left is Jim McKee’s Scott County Cardinals, who play the No. 1 team in not only our state, but the nation; the Trinity Shamrocks.  
    Joining Scott County in the playoffs are two other teams from Harrison County’s tough schedule this year.  The Belfry Pirates and the Ft. Thomas Highlands Bluebirds are also playing on Saturday in Bowling Green.  

  • Fillies inexperience shows in...

    “Conner played 16 girls and was very athletic,” bemoaned Fillies Coach Kim Furnish. “We found out just how much work we have yet to do.”  
    Furnish said this after the Harrison County Fillies were defeated 80-51 by the Lady Cougars of Conner in the final scrimmage of the year Saturday afternoon. The scrimmage, which was played at Ft. Thomas Highlands, was 22-minute halves with a regular clock, which simulated as close to a regular season game as a scrimmage is allowed.
