    HCHS cheerleaders finish 12th in national competition, head to state finals Saturday
    The Harrison County High School Varsity Cheerleaders returned last week from a great performance in the national finals in Orlando, Fla. The girls, competing in the small squad division, placed 12th of the 42 teams in the division.  
    The girls advanced to the finals by completing one of the best rounds of the day in the semi’s advancing them on to Sunday night’s competition.  

  • Homecoming/Senior Night blowout...

    The delayed and rescheduled homecoming game and the end-of-the-season Senior Night festivities were very good Friday night except for one glaring omission. The Harrison County Thorobreds lost the game in a less than impressive outing leaving an emotional hole in the festivities.
    The night started very nicely with a chili supper/bake sale sponsored by Project Graduation, which was nearly a $1,000 success.  
    The junior varsity game was very well played going into overtime before the Montgomery County team edged the Thorobreds junior varsity 58 to 54.

  • Fillies defeat Augusta, lose at...

    The Harrison County Fillies wrapped up the regular season Friday night with a 60-31 loss at Bryan Station after beating Augusta 55-50 Wednesday on the Hilltop.  
    The Fillies end the season with a 5-21 record yet are an improving ball club.  
    On Wednesday, Harrison County overcame an outstanding performance from Augusta sophomore Jerica Kelsch who lit up the score board for 31 points.  
    Kelsch scored only two points in the opening period, which saw Harrison County lead 17-6 at the stop.  

  • Harrison County improves to 17-...

    Four Thorobreds scored in double figures Tuesday night as Harrison County began to right the ship with an 83-66 victory over Frankfort’s Panthers in Frankfort.  
    The Thorobreds started the game a little slow but then went on a 10-to-zero run and never surrendered the lead in the best shooting night that the Breds have had in two weeks.  
    Coach Larry Kendall started his “new’ line up and again it worked well for the Thorobreds.  

  • Lady Eagles wear down...

    The construction was only the beginning of the road blocks that the Harrison County Fillies would endure Monday night as they battled the Scott High Lady Eagles in a game pitting two 10th Region rivals.  
    The Fillies were working to continue their late-season improvement as they prepare for the opening game of the 38th District Tournament next Monday against Pendleton County.  
    The assignments facing the 16-10 Lady Eagles became tougher almost immediately as sophomore point guard Kassidy Cook went down with an apparent hamstring injury.  

  • The Wildcats will be better than...

    This week for the first time since really early in the season, the University of Kentucky Wildcats are rated in the top 25 of college basketball.  
    In the Associated Press poll, the Wildcats are seven points ahead of Tubby Smith’s Minnesota Golden Gophers for the 25th and last spot in the poll.  
    The USA Today Coaches poll does not have the Wildcats in it but there is probably some bias among the coaches.  
    I noticed that the coaches also had Indiana second to Duke instead of first like the Associated Press did in its poll.

  • Fillies win district battle with...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued their late-season improvement as they defeated the Nicholas County Lady Jackets Wednesday evening, 39-28, in the first game of the girl/boy doubleheader on the Hilltop.  
    On Saturday night the Lady Crusaders of St. Henry handed the Fillies a 56-51 defeat in a physical battle again in the Hilltop gym.

  • Thorobreds lose two of three,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds have seen their once sparkling 14-5 record crumble to a 16-11 mark losing five of their last seven games, which caused Coach Larry Kendall to change the starting line up Saturday when the Breds traveled to Martha Layne Collins High School.
    The Thorobreds started the past week with a loss at Estill County (12-14) in a performance that was less than desired to say the least.
