  • Fillies, Thorobreds sweep...

    Homecoming 2010 was a double header victory for the Harrison County basketball programs. 

    Homecoming Queen Elizabeth Ford and King Christian Chasteen watched as first the Fillies and then the Thorobreds pulled out hard-fought victories over Pendleton County Friday night on the Hilltop.

    The Fillies jumped out to a quick 6-2 lead only to see the Lady Wildcats come back with a balanced attack to take the lead at 8-11 by the half way point of the first period. The score seesawed back and forth with the Fillies holding a one point margin at the first stop 16-15. 

  • Brossart’s defense too...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds went up U.S. 27 north Tuesday night and went down to defeat at the hands of the Bishop Brossart Mustangs, 61-35. 

    Brossart’s physically and mentally tough style was more than the Breds could overcome  at least on this occasion.

    Brossart’s senior star Jacob Rieger scored the first nine points for the Mustangs while Harrison County could only answer with a basket from Eric Sanders and one from  Jared Martin to trail by 9-4 after only a few minutes were played.

  • Cheerleaders heading for state...

    The Harrison County Cheerleaders are on their way to the state after winning the 10th Region Medium Division title Sunday at Harrison County High School. 

    The event, which was postponed from Saturday, had schools in five different divisions demonstrating great skill and determination in a two-and-one-half-minute cheering exercise.

    Judges from over Kentucky, excluding the 10th region, witnessed some outstanding shows of balance, technique and over all cheerleading talent as they made the decision as to which squads would advance to the state.

    The Harrison County High School Pep Club and Project Graduation have added some activities to the basketball schedules for the Breds and Fillies.

    On Friday, Feb. 5, admission has been reduced to $2 for the Fillies vs. Paris match up on the Hilltop. On Saturday, the $2 admission will carry over for the Breds vs. St. Pat. Game times for both nights are 6 p.m. for the JV and 7:30 for varsity. For the rest of the year the concession stand will be offering a by-one, get-one deal on hot dogs.

  • Harrison Co. wins at Woodford,...

    Monday’s and Tuesday’s games had a lot in common for the Thorobreds. In both games, the winning team came from behind with a big effort in the fourth quarter to win the game. 

    For each game, the winning team had a senior lead them by scoring a lot in the fourth quarter. Fortunately for the Thorobreds, that is where the similarity ended. 

  • Thorobreds race past Bourbon...

    In a game where the only question was the score, the Harrison County Thorobreds dashed by Bourbon County Friday night on the Hilltop. 

    The Breds scored the first six points and stretched that to a 15-6 first quarter score.  Malcolm Thomas scored eight points and had four rebounds in the first stanza to lead the Breds while Bourbon as a team scored six. 

  • Harrison wrestlers 3rd in...

    The Harrison County Wrestling team kept its good season going by taking third place in the 21-team Capitol City Classic Saturday. The Breds had three first place finishes, one second and one fourth to tally 139 total points. 

    The winners were Josh Moss in the 140 pound class, Chris Brunker in 145 pound and Brandon Barnett in the 189 pound class.

  • ‘Football is a rough...

    Kentucky is No. 1 and well deserving of the top spot. Okay, I got that over with.

    I watched the Vikings give the game to the Saints Sunday night with my wife and answered many interesting questions. Most of them concern Brett Favre and why he was getting hammered on almost every pass in the second half. 

    Can they do that? 

    Why does he stay in there and let them knock him down? 

    Peyton Manning ducks down to the ground when he sees them coming, why doesn’t Favre? 

  • Fillies split games over weekend

    Harrison County’s Fillies played perhaps their best game of the year Friday night, but came away on the short end of the score at Campbell County. 

    The Lady Camels, who are thought to be a top four team in the region, could never pull away and edged the Fillies 63-55. 

    Harrison County trailed by six at the end of the first period but a balanced attack for the most part brought the Fillies back in the second. At the half, the game was knotted at 23.
