  • Defense returns eight starters...

    Coach Mark Carroll is in his second week of practice with the 2010 Harrison County Thorobreds football team and is optimistic about the chances for the season.  

    The Thorobreds return six senior and two junior starters from last year’s defense and have six other players who contributed last year with more expected from them this year.

  • Golf teams present different...

    Harrison County High School golf coach Jason Crisp is in his second year of coaching the boys’ golf team and will be coaching the girls’ team for the first time this season. 

    The teams are as different as night and day. The girls have virtually no varsity experience while the boys return four of their top five from last year. Crisp had tryouts for the boys’ team while there are only four girls so there was no need for a tryout.

  • Football season is officially...

    I always know when football season arrives.  Officially for me and unofficially for others, the season arrives when the first meeting of the CKFOA is held.  The CKFOA is the Central Kentucky Football Officials Association and the first meeting was Monday.

    In order to officiate a sanctioned high school football game in Kentucky, a person has to be registered with the KHSAA and with an association like the CKFOA, which is responsible for training and assigning officials to the games.

  • HCHS cross country looks to...

    “Last year we worked hard but the competition was very tough and we were disappointed in our finish,” Coach Danny Simpson lamented during a discussion of the upcoming season for the Harrison County Cross Country team.  “We had a lot of injuries and in the region we compete in a team has to be at its best to compete.”

  • Baseball trip is fun for all of...

    Last weekend was the annual Aldridge baseball trip made by my daughter, Amanda, sister, Sarah Jane, brother, John, nephew, Jeremy and me.  This was the third annual trip and probably the most uneventful. 

    We left Friday, drove to Pittsburgh, went to Cleveland on Saturday and back home Sunday. It was quite a quick trip but fun and interesting. 

    The first year we traveled to New York City and Philadelphia. Last year we went to Mecca (St. Louis) and this year to the two cities already mentioned.

  • Volleyball hopes to improve on...

    Harrison County’s Volleyball fortunes soared last year as the Fillies were 38th District Champs and made it to the region semi-finals, losing to then-17th-ranked Campbell County. 

    The Lady Camels went on to be upset in the region finals by Newport Central Catholic due in some way to the effort they had to put out to defeat Harrison County. 

  • Soccer girls return strong core...

    When you lose to graduation an all state player and three other major contributors to the team it is hard to think that you will be successful the next year. 

    But optimistic would be a good term for Harrison County Fillies’ Soccer Coach Kim Jenkins. Despite the loss of the four players, Shelby Clifford, Lorraine Dennie, Ashley Lyons and first-team all-state Courtney Grannis, Jenkins has high hopes for 2010.
