  • Breds win Senior Night battle...

    Frankie Valli of Four Seasons fame sang a song in the late 60s or early 70s that had the lyric “Oh What a Night,” which describes the weekend for the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    First the junior varsity beat Mason County with a come-from-behind overtime win, 46-42. Next, the varsity Breds went to two overtimes to beat Mason County, 53-51, for the first regular season win over the Royals in 16 years. Then on Saturday, the Thorobreds beat Paul Laurence Dunbar 62-61 in the Shoot for the Cure Classic at Nicholas County.  

  • Fillies win two straight heading...

    Senior Night for the Harrison County Fillies was a success as the three senior players went out with a win as the Fillies notched their ninth win of the season on Monday night.  
    This win was the second in a row and third of four games in February.  
    Scott High Lady Eagles were the opponent for the Valentine’s Day eve game and they put up a struggle for three quarters before a flurry of points in the fourth quarter gave the Fillies the 57-45 win.  
    The three-point shot was the downfall and the savior for the Fillies Monday.  

  • Harrison Co. cheerleaders soar...

    It was 2001 that the Harrison County cheerleaders last reached the final round of the UCA National Cheerleading competition in Orlando, Fla.

    Coach Jessica Reynolds was ecstatic with the girls’ performance.

    Five other wrestlers qualified for the state tournament held this weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park in the Alltech Arena.  

  • This is not Thanksgiving but it...

    Before I get into my thought for the week I want to add a Valentine worst gift story that makes some of the others pale.  
    When Ben Hyatt wrote the story last week I’m sure he couldn’t have imagined that someone as smooth and loved by women like me could have a story that would be worthy but here we go.  
    Patti and I lived in Michigan for the longest nine months in history before moving to Cynthiana in April 1976.

Mikayla Fryman with 261, Heather Randolph with 239, Rebecca Switzer with 230 and Jessica Wilson with 224 were instrumental in the victory as well for the Fillies.  

  • Thorobred wrestlers undefeated...

    In the always complicated world of high school wrestling, the Harrison County wrestlers defeated five teams, lost to none and finished fourth by the total team points in the Conner Duals Saturday at the northern Kentucky school.  
    The Thorobreds defeated Conner, Newport, Grant County, Scott High and Cooper in their five head-to-head matches.  
    There were three other teams in the multi-team event that were also undefeated so total team score decided the winner.  

  • Breds fall in close one at...

    On Wednesday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds headed north to face one of the region favorites in the Mustangs of Bishop Brossart on their home floor.

  • Harrison County freshmen take...

    In a rare doubleheader on Wednesday, the Harrison County freshmen basketball team won twice to nail down the 38th District Championship.  
    Pendleton County was the host school and used both the regular and auxiliary gyms to play the opening round games and then finished the one-day championship with the final in the high school gym.  
    The freshmen Breds faced Nicholas County in the opening round and ran into a determined group of young Bluejackets early.
