  • Scrimmage set for Friday with...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds football squad heads northeast to Rowan County Friday night for a 6 p.m. scrimmage. 

    This will be a full-contact scrimmage with three regular 12-minute quarters and one quarter with a continuous clock, so not to be a regulation game. There will be no extra periods. 

    Ticket prices are $4 for adults and $2 for students.  After last Friday’s Maroon/White game, many questions have been answered and some mistakes noted and corrected, but the special teams still have some questions. 

  • Sportsmanship in high school,...

    Before every high school football game, a sportsmanship statement is read to the players and over the public address system in the stadium. 

    Because it is long and there is a lot of noise, it is often not heard in the stadium and many officials choose to paraphrase rather than read the whole statement to the captains. 

    As football season approaches, I thought it would be appropriate to write it in my column so if someone actually reads my column, they will know what is being said on Friday night.

  • Fillies Volleyball opens season...

    The Harrison County Fillies dropped a hard fought match Monday night to the Lady Pirates of Powell County, two games to one. 

    Powell County returned seven seniors and eight juniors from last year’s 17-9 squad and took revenge for the 2-0 loss handed them in the 2009 season by the Fillies. 

    The Lady Pirates won the first game in overtime, 24-26, as the Fillies led early, 5-2, but fell behind and fought to tie at 24 each before falling.

    Maroon and White Scrimmage is Friday at Harrison County Sports Complex

    The regular football season is two weeks away and the Harrison County Thorobreds are preparing by having the annual Maroon and White Scrimmage Friday night at 7 p.m. 

    The night will begin with the freshmen and some of the junior varsity squad dividing into two teams and playing for the first one-half hour. 

    The varsity Breds will then take the field and play a scrimmage using a split squad much as they did during the camp at Campbellsville University last weekend. 

  • NASCAR: The sport is becoming...

    I like to watch NASCAR on television almost as well as going to the races. I have been lucky enough to go to Bristol and Talladega to see live races and have also been to an Indy car race in Lexington, Ohio. 

  • Breds ready to take the...

    With a year of the new Mark Carroll offense under their belt, the Harrison County Thorobreds offense is ready to set the tempo and put some points on the board this season. 

    Last year was a learning process for the team and coaches alike, but this year everyone knows each other and the offense better and plan to make scoring a regular occurrence. 

    This year’s team will be missing some key elements from last year.

  • Golfers start season with tough...

    The Harrison County boys’ golf team took to the links for the first time this year on Monday and Tuesday and finished 18th in a 24-team field in the Flyer Classic. 

    The two-day event, which featured the top teams in the central Kentucky and Louisville areas was played at the Griffin Gate Golf Course and Juniper Hills Golf Course. 

    Coach Jason Crisp was a little disappointed with the first day’s scores, but the team came back on the second day with a respectable 322 compared to Monday’s 335.

  • Limited-time special on season...

    The Harrison County High School athltic department has announced a special ticket price for the chair back section of the football stadium. 

    Beginning today through Tuesday, Aug. 17, at the close of school, tickets for the four-game season at the Harrison County Athletic Complex will be on sale for $25 each for the chair back section. Regular game time ticket price for these seats is $10 each so there is a $15 savings per ticket. 

  • State champions’...

    The State Champion Harrison County Thorobreds will be honored in the high school auditorium Friday night, Aug. 6 at 7 p.m. 

    The State Champions Salute will feature a highlight film of the championship season along with player recognition.  Former Cincinnati Red World Series player and New York Met Gold Glove second basemen Doug Flynn will be the speaker for the evening. 

    This salute is being held in lieu of a banquet for the players so that the public can participate and enjoy the festivities and rewards of a state championship.

  • Defense returns eight starters...

    Coach Mark Carroll is in his second week of practice with the 2010 Harrison County Thorobreds football team and is optimistic about the chances for the season.  

    The Thorobreds return six senior and two junior starters from last year’s defense and have six other players who contributed last year with more expected from them this year.
