  • Thorobred wrestlers undefeated...

    In the always complicated world of high school wrestling, the Harrison County wrestlers defeated five teams, lost to none and finished fourth by the total team points in the Conner Duals Saturday at the northern Kentucky school.  
    The Thorobreds defeated Conner, Newport, Grant County, Scott High and Cooper in their five head-to-head matches.  
    There were three other teams in the multi-team event that were also undefeated so total team score decided the winner.  

  • Breds fall in close one at...

    On Wednesday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds headed north to face one of the region favorites in the Mustangs of Bishop Brossart on their home floor.   
    The Breds, who have never won on this floor, battled hard against a huge height advantage and a cold shooting night to come away on the short end of the 36-34 final score.

  • Harrison County freshmen take...

    In a rare doubleheader on Wednesday, the Harrison County freshmen basketball team won twice to nail down the 38th District Championship.  
    Pendleton County was the host school and used both the regular and auxiliary gyms to play the opening round games and then finished the one-day championship with the final in the high school gym.  
    The freshmen Breds faced Nicholas County in the opening round and ran into a determined group of young Bluejackets early.  

  • Fillies lead entire game, defeat...

    The Harrison County Fillies had more than one opponent Friday night as they battled the Nicholas County Lady Bluejackets in Carlisle.  
    The other opponents were cold shooting from both the field and the three-point line and the ever-present foul trouble, which plagued the Fillies. Despite these issues and a valiant effort by Nicholas County, the Fillies were able to pull out a 51-45 win to improve to 7-18 for the year.
    Harrison County led at all stops in this game as the cold shooting didn’t start in the opening period.  

  • An apology, a congratulations...

    This week I need to start with an apology to Zach Pulliam. In last week’s article about the Harrison County Middle School Colts’ championship I incorrectly referred to Zach as his older brother Dillon.    
    I know myself, as someone who had a younger brother who had to constantly hear about how wonderful I was, the error was made more painful by the frequency of Dillon’s name being in print and Zach as a younger brother having his time in the sun taken away. I am sorry for the error and believe me I would not do this on purpose.

    Track team has another strong
    outing at Mason County Saturday

  • Thorobred bowlers remain...

    On Thursday the Harrison County bowling team traveled to Fleming County and split a match with the Panthers winning the boys’ match and losing the girls’.  
    The boys, led by Justin Mitchell and Zach Schneider, took five of seven games to win the match and remain undefeated with an 8-0 record for the season.  
    Mitchell had a two-game total of 421 followed by Schneider’s 418. James Snapp with 369, Gregory Dick with 368 and Justin Edens with 356 rounded out the top five Harrison County finishers in the boys’ competition.  

  • Breds take big district win over...

    Sophomore Dillon Pulliam scored 25 and senior Caleb Ford hit for 23 as the Harrison County Thorobreds defeated the Pendleton County Wildcats 73-61 Friday night on the Hilltop.  
    Even with the two big scorers leading the way, at least two other Breds made huge contributions to the victory.  Junior guard Scott Kendall played his best game of the season as he limited his turnovers especially in the second half and pitched in 14 points as well.  

  • Fillies drop close one to Lady...

    “We moved and we were active, but they were like trees in there, remarked Coach Kim Furnish following the Fillies’ loss to the Clark County Lady Cards Tuesday night. “When Jordan wasn’t in the game, we were simply outmanned.”  

  • Bowlers roll over Bourbon County...

    The Harrison County bowling team faced both schools from Bourbon County on Sunday and Monday with basically the same results.  
    In Lexington at Joyland on Sunday, the Thorobreds and Fillies were victorious over the bowling Colonels and Lady                        Colonels of Bourbon County.  
    The Fillies swept by the Bourbon County girls, 7-0, making their season record 33-9 in games and a perfect 6-0 match record.
