  • Breds end streak, rout St. Henry...

    A two-game losing streak isn’t much for many teams, but it seems much longer to the Harrison County High School baseball program.  
    Add to the scenario that the steak came after six straight wins on the road and it is even more unlikely.
    That is all in the past now as the Thorobreds got back on track Tuesday night beating St. Henry’s Crusaders 11-1 in five innings.
    The game started poorly for the Breds as starting pitcher Justin Nutter was wild in the beginning walking the first two batters and throwing a wild pitch.  

  • Breds edge Scott High in eight...

    After playing solid defensively for six straight victories, the Harrison County Thorobreds gave up 10 unearned runs in two games losing two straight at home after defeating Scott High on Thursday night, 3-1, in eight innings.  
    The Breds dropped a 12-9 decision to Covington Holy Cross on Friday and then returned to the diamond Saturday to lose to Grant County, 7-4.

  • Fillies ice the Lady Bears in...

    It was an 11-1 night on the Hilltop as the Harrison County Fillies joined the Breds in defeating their opponent 11-1 in varsity action.  
    The Fillies defeated Bracken County at Shirley Field in a game that was very similar to the action taking place on the adjacent baseball diamond.
    Bracken County scored in the top of the first off starter Tracey Hicks to take an early 1-0 lead. Hicks and Jami Davis combined for the next five innings to shut the Lady Bears offense down.  

  • Mike’s Minute

    Congratulations to the Kentucky Wildcats on the eighth national championship.  
    The young men spent their year in Lexington wisely, working hard and blending with a couple of more veteran players to make a really good team.   
    They deserve the accolades that are coming their way and will for the most part reap huge rewards when they go on to the next step in their professional career.
    How about the National Anthem before the championship game? I don’t think it was the worst rendition I have ever heard, but it is in the top three.  

  • Thorobreds third, Fillies fourth...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County track team continued to find success in the early meets this spring as both the Fillies and Thorobreds finished near the top in the Montgomery County Invitational Track Meet.  
    The 12-team field was made up of AAA, AA and A teams with only the AAA teams besting the Harrison County athletes.  
    The Fillies’ fourth place finish was behind Henry Clay, Woodford County and Bryan Station in this meet as Henry Clay won the meet by only three points over Woodford County.

  • Archer winners

    Members of the Harrison County Archery team competed in the Region 7 Shoot Out at Western Hills High School in Frankfort on March 24.  Those receiving medals were HCMS sixth grader Matthew McCarty.

  • Thorobreds win fifth straight...

    Senior Justin Nutter got his first start on the mound Tuesday and things didn’t go exactly as planned as the first-year Thorobred was wild, walking three, hitting one batter, giving up two hits and one run in two and one third innings.  
    On the other hand, the struggles on the hill didn’t bother his hitting any as he went three for four and drove in four runs in the Thorobreds 9-1 defeat of the Fleming County Panthers Tuesday in Flemingsburg.
