  • Golf teams sweep Nicholas County...

    A best round ever by junior Katelin Martin propelled the Harrison County girls’ varsity golf team to a victory over Nicholas County Tuesday night. 

    Martin, who shot a 50 for the nine holes, led her team to a 111 to 117 win. Kristen Aubrey added a 61 to make up the team total while Katherine Chumley shot 69.

  • Brotherly love and sports, like...

    Sunday night as I watched the Manning brothers, Peyton and Eli, play against one another, it reminded me of many years ago and playing with my brothers.

    I have two brothers, one deceased who was two years older than me and my brother John who is two years younger than I. 

    Yes, the middle child, which explains much I know but never mind that.

    We also have a sister, Sarah Jane, who is the youngest of the four and lives in North Carolina.

  • Thorobreds 3-1 after late...

    In a game where two thirds of Harrison County’s offensive plays were rushes, a big Joe Korona to Shane Fowler touchdown hook up spelled the difference as the Breds edged past Scott High 28-22 Friday night. 

    The game, which was played at Dixie Heights’ beautiful complex, was close throughout.

    Harrison County successful in

    fall tennis league

    A group of Harrison County students began play in the Fall Tennis League last weekend and met with some grand success. Juniors Charlie Smith and Wes Barnett took a pair of matches from Lafayette’s singles players by 8-2 and 8-1.  Fellow junior Ben McDonald and freshman Jacob Markley took the doubles action 8-1. 

  • Harrison Co. Cross Country...

    The hot weather and some related illnesses had Harrison County Cross Country Coach Danny Simpson guessing a bit on Saturday in Mason County. 

    “We generally run well on this course, but with our top runner for the varsity boys out with an illness and the other health-related challenges we have had this week, I wasn’t sure what to expect,” he noted. 

    Both the varsity boys and girls finished in the back of the standings, the boys 14th and the girls 12th. 

  • Fillies soccer ties undefeated...

    Wednesday night the stars must have been in line for the Walton Verona Lady Bearcats as they dodged the bullet and remained undefeated by forcing a tie with the Harrison County Fillies 1-1. 

    The Fillies out-shot the home team by a 12-9 margin and many of the shots missed were point blank opportunities that just missed. 

  • Fillies win Dink Scott...

    “We are really starting to come around,” a pleased Fillies’ Volleyball Coach Bill Faulkner said after the Fillies swept past Madison Southern 2-0 (25-16, 25-11) Tuesday night. “We are learning our roles and starting to have some fun with everyone contributing.” 

    The Fillies, fresh from winning the six-game Dink Scott Memorial Tournament in Mt. Sterling on Saturday, handled the Lady Eagles (8-9) without much difficulty.

  • Thorobreds tie Franklin, Rowan...

    Soccer is a much more physical game than anyone realizes until a game or two are watched.

    The Harrison County versus Franklin County match at LeBus Field last Thursday night certainly proved this. 

    Yet, as physical and almost out of control as it appeared, only one card was issued and that was a red card to Breds’ fullback junior Anthony Shirley. This was in the second half with 26-plus minutes left in the contest and put the home squad at a decided disadvantage.

    Middle school cross country

    does well in Frankfort meet

    The Harrison County Middle School Cross Country teams each finished fourth of nine teams in the Frankfort All Comers race last Wednesday. 

    The 1500M course is one that the teams had competed on earlier in the year and nearly every member bettered the time that they had run before on Wednesday.

    Each race, both the girls’ and boys’, had more than 100 participants. In the girls’ race Harrison County’s Amelia Bolin finished first with an excellent time of 6:15.8. 

  • What is wrong with this picture?

    Sunday in another disappointing outing for Bengal fans; the Bengals lost again to the Patriots. 

    The loss wasn’t an upset particularly, but the way the game was played should have been upsetting to Bengal hierarchy, Marvin Lewis and the Bengal nation. 

    The team, though expressing supreme confidence that it would win, put about as poor of an effort forth in the game, especially in the first half, that I have seen for a while by players not in Ram outfits.
