    Thunder Run tryouts

  • Fillies take a step back in loss...

    After the game Monday night in Mason County, Fillies’ Assistant Coach Chris Reffett said that the coaches felt like the team took a step backward in the stifling loss.  
    “We thought that we had made some improvement with our ball handling and ability to withstand defensive pressure, especially after Saturday’s game, but tonight it was like we had never worked on it at all,” he concluded.
    The Fillies began the game with one of the worst quarters of the season.

  • Young Fillies lose three in...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued their early season struggles on Friday and Saturday as they dropped games to Shelby Valley, Dixie Heights and Middletown, Ohio.
    Shelby Valley brought an 8-1 record into the tournament being regarded by most as the best team in the 15th Region.  
    They did nothing to make anyone think differently as they used the strength of four three pointers in the first quarter to sprint out to a 20-5 lead and were never threatened in the 70-38 win.  

  • New Year’s resolutions

    When you get to be my age there have been many chances to make great and meaningful changes/improvements at the beginning of the year.  
    I never have been able to resolve to lose weight, quit swearing etc., so this year all of my resolutions are going to be sports related.
    The first one would be easy for some people but has always been hard for me.  
    That will be to continue to follow a sport after “my team” is eliminated.  

  • Thorobred wrestlers battle teams...

    The youthful Harrison County wrestling team spent the pre-Christmas weekend wrestling against teams from Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia in a tournament held near Knoxville.  
    The Breds finished with one victory and four losses as they were matched against veteran teams from the tri-state area.  
    The Thorobreds lost to two teams where they were within one match of turning the defeat into a team victory.  Both Alcoa and Dobyns Bennett, Tenn., edged Harrison County, Alcoa by 40-36 and Dobyns Bennett by 47-41.  

  • Breds split four, finish 6th at...

    Poor free throw shooting in the fourth quarter Sunday sent the Harrison County Thorobreds down to a 65-59 defeat to Rowan County and sixth place in the Lake Cumberland Holiday Hoops Classic.  
    The Breds had previously defeated Louisville Southern, 67-41, and Louisville Manual, 65-64, while losing to Somerset, 66-48, in the four day tournament.  
    The Classic began on Thursday night with the game against the Trojans of Louisville Southern.
