    Middle School Colts win games
    with Clark Middle Monday
    The Harrison County Middle School Colts hosted the Clark Middle Eagles Monday on the Hilltop and both the seventh and eighth grade teams improved their records.
    The seventh grade rolled to an 11-point halftime lead only to see the visitors cut the lead to four as the game wound down to the end. The Colts were able to connect on just enough free throws to hold off the Eagles and come away with a 34-25 victory.

  • No gifts at Gateway Holiday...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds found the competition quick and tenacious at the Gateway Holiday Tournament in Mt. Sterling last week losing to Marshall County and Male while defeating Owen County.  
    Wednesday afternoon the Breds faced the then 9-0 Marshals of Marshall County and lost by a 62-46 score in a game where they were never really a threat.  
    The Marshall County defense took senior Caleb Ford out of his game with a face guarding defense that frustrated Ford and left the Breds looking for scoring.  

  • Grapplers finish 16th in high...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestlers tuned up for the annual Harrison County Invitational Wrestling Tournament by competing last week in the Lafayette tournament in Lexington.  
    The Lafayette tourney is compiled of the top teams in the state including schools from 10 different regions, 26 teams overall.  
    The Thorobreds were 16th of 26 teams totaling 80 points.  
    The meet was won by Simon Kenton followed by Anderson County, Lafayette and North Hardin.  

  • Fillies lose opener in Lady...

    The Lady Rebels of Boyle County spotted the Harrison County Fillies a five-point lead in the first period and then turned on the defensive pressure to rout Harrison County 79-55 Tuesday afternoon in Frankfort.  
    The game was the second of the day in the Lady Wolverine Christmas Tourney hosted by Western Hills High School.  
    The Fillies had lost to Boyle County last Monday in Lexington during the Fayette County tourney and had hoped to be able to handle the pressure better this go around.  

  • Breds win two of three games in...

    Winning two of three games is not a bad week before Christmas, but Coach Mike Reitz was not pleased.  
    “We had a 14-point lead against Heritage with seven minutes to play and lost the game,” lamented the veteran coach. “They hit 12 threes for the game and six in the last quarter.”  
    The Thorobreds perimeter defense failed to get a hand in the face of seniors Cody Wagner and Corey Stroub who combined for the six treys in the final quarter to lead the Maryville Heritage team to a 77-72 win over the Thorobreds.  

  • New Year’s wishes for 2012

    I want to give a Top 10 list much like the one that is given on late night television by one of the other famous Hoosiers.  My list will consist of things I would like to happen for me personally as well as in local sports.  
    I am going to leave off everyone being healthy and the like because that goes without saying.  
    10. For one year, everyone in the United States thinking about what is best for the country and not what is best them personally.  

  • Fillies drop games to Tates...

    Coach Kim Furnish was sure that the Fayette Tournament was good for her team.  
    “Mariah Nichols’ injury was not good at all, but we learned quite a lot about the rest of the team in this tournament,” said the first-year coach. “We played two Lexington schools with largely an eighth grader, two freshmen, a sophomore and two seniors and improved each day.”  
    Nichols suffered her second concussion of the year on Monday afternoon against Boyle County and will be sidelined until mid-January more than likely.  

  • Fillies fall to Boyle County,...

    Monday evening started out with a 13-point run by the Lady Rebels of Boyle County and the Harrison County Fillies could not recover as they lost to the 7-2 12th Region opponent 71-58.  
    Sophomore center Jordan Doram picked up two fouls in the first minute and a half of the first period which caused her to have to leave the game with the score 10-4 in favor of the Lady Rebels.  
    Fouls were not the problem for the Fillies on this night however, but 23 first-half turnovers did them in for the game.  

  • Eighth grade remains undefeated...

    Harrison County’s Middle School teams are going in different directions at the end of 2011 as the eighth grade remained undefeated and the seventh grade lost four straight last week.  
    The eighth grade team began the period with a 50-28 blowout of Bourbon County.  
    Zach Pulliam led the way with 15 points, followed by Jovon Williams who netted 13.  Brock Jenkins contributed eight points while distributing the ball from the point guard position as the Colts led by as many as 27 points during the game.

  • Harrison County wrestlers...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestlers traveled to Newport Saturday and won five of five duals at the Newport Dual Meet.  
    The Breds took down Scott County, Holmes, Newport, Boone County and Grant County in what Coach Luke Tucker called “Taking care of business.”  
    “We have to get ready for a huge tournament in Lexington next week and this was an excellent preparation for that,” Tucker said. “Some of the top teams and individuals in the state will be there.”
