  • Fillies golfers defeat Bourbon...

    On Wednesday, Sept. 17, the Fillies golfers traveled to Paris and took on the Bourbon County Lady Colonels on the Houston Oaks Golf Course.  
    Harrison County won the match by a narrow six-stroke margin thanks largely to medalist Sarah Holland who fired a 46 in the nine-hole event.  
    Seventh grader Anna Midden was next for the Fillies as she shot a 56, followed by Sarah Durbin (58) and Christina Wilson (60).  Morgan Nelly, Kenzie Jones and Tori Aubrey also played for the Fillies.

  • Who or what is the moral compass...

    I am having so much fun as of late I hate to write a serious article, but this has been weighing on my mind and I feel the need to share.
    When I was a youngster back in the Middle Ages I never once thought of a sports person as a hero or someone that was going to show me right from wrong.  
    Don’t get me wrong, I admired athletes for their ability in their chosen fields and wanted to play like them but that was it.  
    They were playing a game and not being a role model for me.  

  • Central Shaolin Martial Arts Test
  • Cross Country teams do well in...

    Last Tuesday’s Bourbon County All-Comer’s Meet saw Thorobreds runner Ross Smith lead the pack as he won the 26-competitor run in 18:30 for the 5,000M.  
    The Thorobreds did not have enough runners to compete for the team championship, which was unfortunate since Daniel Craig was 10th and Shane Palmer 15th, which would have been a good score.  
    The Fillies were also short some runners for the girls’ 5,000M run.  
    Abby Cooper led the Fillies with a 12th place finish followed by Tamara Lunsford and Chelsea Bowman.

  • Colonels run up 49-0 win over...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds continued to show some improvement but after a solid first quarter defensively they fell to Bourbon County, 49-0, Friday night on the Hilltop.  
    The Breds recovered Bourbon County’s on-side kick to start the game at the Harrison County 48-yard line.  
    Christian Sinckler gained five yards on the first play from scrimmage but from that point forward, the Breds would not be able to run the football with any success.

    Thorobreds’ JV run over Bourbon County Monday

  • Soccer Breds roll past Simon...

    Brock Jenkins and Logan Wiley scored second-half goals as the Harrison County Thorobreds shook off the malaise of Saturday to get past Simon Kenton, 2-0, on the Pioneers’ home field.
    “I usually do not schedule Saturday games,” noted Coach Nick Hill. “The players are out of their routine and generally start slow and this was no exception.”  
    Hill said he felt like his team could have well been down by a couple of goals at the half instead of the 0-0 score.  

  • Some improvement in loss at...

    Despite the 49-7 defeat at the hands of the Mason County Royals (4-0) Friday night, some light could be seen at the end of the tunnel for Harrison County’s football Thorobreds.
    After falling behind 21-0 in the first period, the Breds played much more competitively for the rest of the game — especially in the second half.
    Mason County’s Rico Hill had a career night. The senior running back scored four times in the first half on running plays for the veteran Mason County line up.
