  • Cheerleaders perform well in...

    The Harrison County Cheerleaders did what no other squad accomplished in the state meet held in Bowling Green last weekend. 

    While competing very well and finishing seventh out of 16 in their medium squad division was a great success story there was even more impressive accomplishments.

    During the competition eight Stella S. Gibbs Scholarships were awarded to the 51 seniors who applied for the award. The criteria are based on ACT score, GPA and overall community involvement.

  • Breds advance in district play...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds avenged a triple overtime defeat in regular season by defeating the Nicholas County Bluejackets 57-51 in first round action in District 38 Tuesday night. 

    Nicholas County had defeated the Thorobreds on Dec. 11, 83-78, in three overtimes which put an extra emphasis on this already do-or-die game. 

    The first period was a Jekyll and Hyde performance by each team as first Harrison County took a 10-2 lead only to have Nicholas County come back to within two at the end of the period, 12-10.

  • Barnett brings home Region 7...

    Harrison County’s Brandon Barnett was the only state champion from Region 7, which is central Kentucky. 

    The Harrison County junior did his imitation of Rocky villain Ivan Drago, encouraged by Coach Mitch Mattox, and went for the blond hair style from the movie.

    Fortunately, he wrestled more like Rocky and brought home the state championship. 

  • Harrison County freshman 10th...

    The Harrison County freshman boys completed a most successful season by winning the 10th Region championship Sunday at Mason County. The youthful Breds defeated Montgomery County and Mason County to bring home the trophy.

    The semi-final match up against Montgomery County was really never close as Harrison County applied a full court press from the start and pulled away.  

  • Harrison County’s...

    Brandon Barnett was favored to win going into the 7th Region Tournament last weekend and he did not disappoint. Josh Moss was third seeded, but he defeated both the first and second seed to give Harrison County two regional winners. 

    The Thorobreds finished seventh in team points as Woodford County won its third straight regional crown.

  • Fillies lose two heartbreakers

    Unlike the snow, Harrison County’s Fillies couldn’t get the last shot to drop and lost heartbreakers on Friday and Saturday. Friday night at home the Fillies lost to Paris 51-49 and Saturday they traveled to West Jessamine and fell 44-41.

    Friday night the Lady Greyhounds jumped out to a big lead outscoring the Fillies 17-6 in the first quarter. More than half of the quarter was gone before the Fillies scored, and they were already down six points. 

  • Recreation baseball sign ups...

    Recreation baseball sign ups Saturday

    Harrison County Recreation Department director, Rick Chasteen, has announced that sign ups for this year’s baseball leagues will begin Saturday. The sign ups will be at Sports Unlimited from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 20.

    This includes Little League, coach pitch, tee-ball, instructional and pigtail softball.

  • Class sports are a huge mistake

    I saw where a couple of coaches were asking the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to look into having class baseball and other sports like they do football. 

    This would, of course, not include basketball which already has a class A tournament. Besides, the basketball tournament is the big cash cow that operates the rest of the tournaments that do not pay their own way. 

  • Royals trump Breds Friday night

    The Harrison County Thorobreds hosted one of the favorites to win the 10th Region Friday night and Mason County showed one and all why they are rated so highly.  

    In a game where Harrison County never led, Mason County pulled away to an easy 71-51 victory. Easy, not to say the Thorobreds didn’t try hard, but like the Clark County game, they never could get shots to fall early and just kept falling further behind. 

  • Wrestling region this weekend at...

    The large number of schools participating has caused the wrestling region to be changed to a Friday night and Saturday format. Friday night starts at 6 p.m.; Saturday at 10 a.m. 

    Harrison County will have four wrestlers in the top four seeds in their weight classes along with 11 others who will compete in hopes of grabbing some points for the Thorobreds.
