  • Soccer Breds edge Cardinals,...

    In a couple of big rivalry games, the Harrison County Thorobreds Soccer team faced George Rogers Clark and Montgomery County in their last two matches. 

    On Thursday in Winchester, rough play was the norm as the Breds defeated the Cards for the first time is some time. 

    “We have always played pretty well against them, but never quite good enough to win,” admitted Coach Nick Hill.  “This year we broke that curse.”

  • Fillies offensive struggles...

    The Harrison County Fillies played Campbell County at the new Athletic Complex on Wednesday night and, despite out-shooting the Lady Camels 13 to six, lost the contest 2-1. 

    The Fillies led the 25th rated Lady Camels 1-0 at the half, but lost key fullback Nikki Taylor to an ankle injury and had to play the second half with a different line up. 

    Though Coach Kim Jenkins thought the Fillies adjusted well, they still came away with a disappointing 2-1 loss.

  • 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.
