  • The spirit of the season

    The Christmas Season is fast approaching and in basketball that means holiday tournaments.  
    Both the Fillies and Thorobreds are participating and, of course, they are playing at the same time in places far from each other.  
    This fact makes it very difficult to cover for both WCYN and the Cynthiana Democrat but fortunately the coaches give us a lot of help with facts and figures.  
    It is our intention to cover all sports as fairly as we can but when there is one of us it sometimes becomes a challenge.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Fillies’ struggles continue in...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued to struggle as they dropped a tough double overtime game on Friday to Nicholas County and then were beat by Lexington Christian Academy on Saturday night.
    The Nicholas County game was the opener of the girl/boy doubleheader with the neighbors to the east on Friday night in Carlisle.  
    As one might expect for a double overtime game, it was close throughout until the fourth period the Fillies were in the lead and at one point had a 12-point advantage.  

  • Rec Department

    Wrestling Thorobreds second in
    five-team Montgomery Duals
    Coach Luke Tucker summed up the day when he said, “The team did better than expected with all the injuries and sickness.”
    This was after a depleted Harrison County squad led by youngsters Michael Maddox and Colin Coy had worked their way to a second place finish in Mt. Sterling Saturday. Five starters were missing from the Thorobreds’ line up when the day began due to illness or injuries.  

  • Breds lose foul fest to Scott...

    In a ball game that saw 59 fouls called, five players disqualified with fouls and 68 free throws, the Scott High Eagles improved their season record to 3-2 as they edged Harrison County 83-79 on the Hilltop Tuesday night.  
    It was the first loss in three games for Harrison County who, according to Coach Larry Kendall, didn’t adjust to how the game was being called and were not able to get a flow going for the biggest part of the night.  

  • Bourbon County runs past...

    “Unlike against Calvary Christian, we fought hard all night tonight and never gave up,” praised Coach Kim Furnish after the Fillies’ 60-36 loss to the Bourbon County Lady Colonels Monday night.  “We made mistakes and turnovers, but we hustled all night, which I was pleased to see.”
    The Fillies battled the heavily favored Lady Colonels even for the first period, despite junior center Jordan Doram picking up two early fouls.  

  • Breds second to Bourbon Co. in...

    Coach Luke Tucker’s Harrison County wrestling team overcame some bad luck on Saturday to finish second thanks to some gritty performances by some young, up-and-coming wrestlers.  
    The bad luck was when freshman Nathan Lopez suffered a concussion in the semi’s of the 120 lb weight class and could not continue.  
    Lopez was a stalwart in the eighth grade last year and figured to score points in the meet on Saturday.  
    That was the bad news though for the Breds.  

  • Where are our priorities

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are off to a great start after the first two games, which is when this was written and that is wonderful.  They are playing an exciting brand of basketball, which is fun to watch and people should go support them.  
    But that is not what this article is about.  
    The University of Kentucky hired a new coach with a football family name, Mark Stoops, and that too is great.  Probably a good hire, at least one with a little imagination, but that is not what this article is about either.
