    Seniors Anthony Shirley and Shawn Tobin were close but neither made it to the podium and the Harrison County wrestlers went scoreless in the state meet last weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park.  

  • College referee’s don’t get paid...

    Before I go into my main topic of the week, I want to mention an award that my brother John received last Friday.  
    Only John’s wife and daughters were aware of his being named to the North Hardin Basketball Hall of Fame last Friday for his contributions over several years to the program.  

  • Fillies drop overtime battle to...

    In a game that was close throughout, the Harrison County Fillies lost an overtime thriller to Bryan Station of Lexington Friday in the season finale on the Hilltop.  
    The Lady Defenders, who were at one time highly rated this year, used man-to-man pressure and quickness to forge ahead early, but the Fillies handled the pressure well to stay in striking distance.  
    Bryan Station held the first quarter advantage at 15-8 but the Fillies chipped away at the margin and cut the lead to four at 27-23 by halftime.

    Harrison County cheerleaders finished
    sixth Saturday in Bowling Green
    Fresh from the UCA National Cheerleading contest in Orlando, Fla., where they finished fifth in the nation, the Harrison County cheerleaders finished sixth in the KAPOS competition Saturday in Bowling Green.  
    The Harrison County squad faced many of the same teams they defeated in Florida and came away one point from the fifth place slot.  

  • Tri-County Sluggers
  • Kentucky Afield Outdoors

    See RECORDS page ---The winds still blow from the north and many days produce cold temperatures and leaden skies, but now is the time to catch big muskellunge in the tailwaters below Cave Run, Buckhorn and Green River lakes.
    The smaller tailwaters give bank anglers and owners of small boats a chance at a trophy muskellunge.

  • Breds finish at home with 71-58...

    The last home game for the Harrison County Thorobreds Tuesday night was a great way to close out the season on the Hilltop.  
    A quick and athletic Frankfort Panthers squad provided the opposition and though the Breds never trailed, the Panthers never quit.  
    The Thorobreds hit their first four attempts from the field as they raced out to a 27-13 lead by the end of the first session.  
    Caleb Ford had 12 of his game-high 25 points in this opening period.
