  • 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.

  • College football begins this week

    The questions remain unanswered and some of them will not be answered for sometime, but the anticipation is killing me. 

    Is Joker Phillips the right man to replace Rich Brooks?  Is Hartline the best choice for quarterback? How about Charlie Strong? Can he do for Louisville what he was a part of in Florida?  Is Strong starting the right quarterback after Louisville had its own three way competition? Will my Hoosiers improve as much as some experts say they will and make me sorry that I quit getting season tickets? 

  • HCHS golfers continue to improve...

    The Harrison County golfers have competed in a variety of different ways with the Fillies and the junior varsity as well as the varsity Breds playing in several matches. 

    On Wednesday, Aug. 25, the junior varsity faced Paris’ varsity and were defeated by 30 seven strokes. 

    It was valuable experience for the young group of junior varsity players, many of whom will make up the varsity for several years.

  • Middle school football drops two...

    The first-ever Bourbon County Colonel Classic was held Saturday afternoon as the seventh and eighth grade teams of Harrison and Bourbon counties met on the gridiron.  Bourbon County came away victorious in both games winning the seventh grade game 14-8, and the eighth grade game 44-20.

    The seventh grade team, coached by Eric Reed and Randolph Thomas, played very well, according to middle school head Coach Jim Carr. 

    “The touchdown that was called back on a procedure penalty was the difference in this game,” he noted.

  • Fillies Soccer continues to face...

    Harrison County’s Fillies continue to battle some of the top competition in the state as they work through the 2010 season. 

    On Sunday, the Fillies traveled to North Oldham High School to face the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers. 

    Elizabethtown, with a 3-1 record, defeated the Fillies by a 3-0 score as they scored twice in the first half on direct kicks. 

    One of these goals came as the Fillies’ defender slipped and fell allowing access to the goal.

  • Crows and crow have their places...

    I really have nothing to say about the bird called a crow, but the title was so catchy I had to use it. I do have something to say about eating crow. 

    Don’t take this as a surrender or a change of heart, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due.   

    The Reds of Cincinnati have played better baseball with more success than I ever dreamed possible, especially with Dusty Baker as manager.
