  • Carr new football coach at HCHS

    When the search for a new football coach began at Harrison County, one name was heard often among the people who were on the outside looking in.  
    That name was Jim Carr.  
    Carr has been named and has accepted the job of head football coach at Harrison County High School and is beginning to move forward.  
    He began Monday afternoon by holding meetings with the returning high school and middle school players.  At each school the principal introduced Carr to the players.

  • Now it’s baseball season

    With baseball’s opening day only a little more that a week away (at the time of this writing), I am getting excited about another year of ups and downs for all of the fans of Major League Baseball.  
    There has been a great deal of movement by players from team to team in the off season and dollars thrown around like confetti.  
    During the time between the last out in the 2011 World Series and 2012 spring training, the Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers alone spent more than one half billion dollars on player contracts.

    Archers success continues with wins
    over Franklin County opposition
    Though the winter was mild, the Harrison County Archery teams still had a match that had to be made up due to icy weather conditions. This match was made up on March 17 when the middle school hosted Bondurant of Frankfort and the high school archers entertained the Western Hills Wolverine squad.

  • Breds rout Garrard Co. 10-5, E....

    Harrison County began the baseball season on the road Saturday and came home with a 10-5 win over Garrard County.  
    The Thorobreds’ bats rocked the Lions’ pitching for 11 hits, including four home runs scored in the first five innings to cage the Lions.  
    Starting Thorobreds’ pitcher Jordan Martin began the hit parade with a two-run home run in the top of the first, scoring Zach Royce who had walked ahead of him.  

  • HCMS Soccer
  • Fillies Soccer
  • Harrison County track teams...

    The Woodford County All Comers Meet last Saturday was the earliest meet Fillies Track Coach Danny Simpson can remember competing in for as long as he has been coaching at Harrison County.  The results for the early entry were good to very good for the two squads as the Fillies were fifth of 11 teams and the Thorobreds won the 12-team boys’ competition.  
    Coach Robert Walker was high on his team’s performance especially considering the points the new track athletes scored and the work his whole group put forth.  

  • NCAA working down to select few

    Only one short Sunday ago there were 68 teams with the big dream of cutting down the nets in New Orleans on April 2.  
    Only 16 remain with many of the favorites being pushed aside by “much lesser” opposition.  
    I for one did not shout with glee when Duke lost to Lehigh or when Missouri was bested by Norfolk State. It is good for the under dogs to win now and then to keep them full of hope at the possibility of that one shining moment, so it doesn’t upset me when it happens.
