  • Fillies revenge earlier loss by...

    Sept. 8 was more than a month ago, but the day was fresh on the minds of the Harrison County Fillies since that was the date of their 4-1 loss to the Lady Colonels of Bourbon County.  
    Monday night the chance for revenge was available and the Fillies took advantage by defeating Bourbon County 1-0 in the opener of the 10th Region girls’ soccer tournament.  The loss ended Bourbon County’s season with a 19-4 record.  

  • HCHS JV finishes 6-0 with 41-0...

    Monday night’s game on Lawson Field at Ingles Stadium saw the Harrison County junior varsity football team complete a perfect season with a 41-0 trouncing of the Pendleton County Wildcats.  
    The Harrison County team will not compete in the conference playoffs though they are the regular season JV champs because they are not playing a freshman schedule.  
    This made the Monday night game the final match up of the season.

  • Volleyball Fillies sweep into...

    Led by the powerful kills of senior Amber Darnell, the passing of junior Casey Wallace and the serving of eighth grader Emma Gooden, the Harrison County Fillies defeated Robertson County Tuesday in straight sets.

    The Fillies won 25-9, 25-22 and 25-14 to sweep by the Lady Devils.
    Harrison County jumped out to a big 12-4 lead early in the first set and coasted to the win.

  • Fillies beat Mason County in...

    After last week’s 3-0 loss to Franklin County at LeBus Field, Coach Kevin Gaunce was looking for a complete 80-minute effort from his Harrison County Fillies.  
    He got just that Monday in the opener of the 38th District tournament in Maysville.  
    A key stop on a penalty kick by goal keeper Chelsea Ingram propelled the Harrison County Fillies to a 3-1 win over Mason County Monday night as the Fillies advanced to the finals scheduled for Wednesday.  

  • JV football 5-0 with 41-6 win...

    The Harrison County junior varsity football team traveled to Vanceburg Monday evening and routed the Lewis County Lions, 41-6.  The win gives the Breds a 5-0 record for the junior varsity season.
    Justice Moore started the game off right with a return for a touchdown on the opening kick off.  
    Austin Jackson’s extra point made it 7-0 and the Breds were on their way.

  • The world is full of mud

    I was not unfortunate enough to have to serve in Vietnam so what I know about it comes from reading, watching television and talking to those who were there.  
    I understand that during the monsoon season, it was awfully muddy in Vietnam.  
    While not nearly as important, it was also awfully muddy in Cynthiana on Friday night.  
    The soldiers could really do nothing about the mud, neither could the football players on Friday night.
