  • Archers set sights on state...

    Coming off another dominating Region 8 sweep, Harrison County archers return to the competitive range at the Louisville International Convention Center March 29.  
    Almost 3,000 shooters from all over the Commonwealth look to descend on Louisville for this event. Harrison County, particularly the high school division, has high expectations individually and as a team.

  • Sports beat

    NKU softball improves to 14-8,
    7-1 in conference
    The Lady Norse of Northern Kentucky University improved their season mark to 14-8 with a sweep of Missouri S&T and a split with Drury last weekend. Harrison County alum Michelle Carson saw limited action in the four games playing third base in a back-up role for the Lady Norse.  

  • All Region Team
  • Mike’s Minute


    The weather is wonderful and the hotel is great, but there is not a lot of time to relax and enjoy it.  
    Four grandchildren and a bunch of ball games does not allow for much “free” time.  
    I’m not complaining mind you, but when I am this busy little things set me off.  
    I am currently having problems with my iphone connection, which causes sending video issues and double and triple work, which sets me off.  

  • Defending champions have...

    When you are the defending state champion with the top rating in the state going into the season, the outlook should be rosy.  
    But as Coach Mac Whitaker explained, things aren’t always as they seem from the outside looking in.  

  • Fillies track returning veteran...

    Veteran track coach Danny Simpson returns 16 of the 21 starters from the regional team last year as the Fillies embark on the 2011 track season.  
    Gone are graduated runners Courtney Grannis, Ashley Lyons and Liz Ford, all of whom contributed to the team’s success last year.  
    “We didn’t lose many girls from last year, but the ones we did lose meant a lot to our team,” said Simpson.  

  • Harrison County’s tennis team...

    Harrison County graduated the No. 1 Fillies doubles team in Polly Whalen and Jacqueline Young, the No. 1 Thorobreds singles player in Ross Smith and one half of the Breds No. 1 doubles team in Kalen Woosley.  The other half of that No. 1 doubles team, junior Ben McDonald, moved away so there are several holes to fill for second-year coach Kara Mattox.  
    However, given these circumstances, the cupboard is far from bare.  

  • NCAA and Sweet Sixteen, it’s the...

    This is one of my favorite times of the year.  
    It’s when the high school players put it all on the line at Rupp Arena for the state championship and the college players do the same for the NCAA championship.  
    This year’s NCAA has a Cynthiana flavor as John Michael Reitz takes his training skills to Denver as the Morehead State Eagles battle the Louisville Cardinals, and both of the Hampton men will be officiating in the “Big Dance” -- John in Tampa and Brent in Chicago.

  • 'Breds & Fillies:...

    Cynthiana Democrat sports writer Mike Aldridge is in Pensacola, Fla., following the Breds and Fillies on their spring break tour.

    Mike will be sending updates on ballgames along with video of the players and coaches. Visit the website for the most recent happenings with Harrison County’s baseball and softball teams.  New photos will be added to the slide show at the left and videos will go at the bottom of the story, newest on top.

  • Breds fall to Cardinals in...

    On Jan. 19, George Rogers Clark’s cardinals rolled into Cynthiana and ripped the Thorobreds by a 73-55 margin in a game that wasn’t as close as the score indicated.  
    Friday’s regional battle was expected by many, including the Cardinal fans, to be more of the same.  
    The lay-down-and-die message never made it to the Thorobreds or the coaching staff at Harrison County though and the Thorobreds gave the state’s third rated team all they wanted and more in the 63 -53 tussle at the Mason County High School Field House.
