  • Marsh wins Frankfort meet to...

    In a busy first week for the Harrison County Cross Country team, junior Jacob Marsh took first place in the Frankfort All Comers Meet last Wednesday. 

    On a hot and dry day, both the Fillies and Breds varsity teams finished second to East Jessamine, but both squads gave a good accounting. 

    This meet also had races for the Harrison County Middle School teams as they matched up with seven other middle schools in both the boys and girls.

  • College football begins this week

    The questions remain unanswered and some of them will not be answered for sometime, but the anticipation is killing me. 

    Is Joker Phillips the right man to replace Rich Brooks?  Is Hartline the best choice for quarterback? How about Charlie Strong? Can he do for Louisville what he was a part of in Florida?  Is Strong starting the right quarterback after Louisville had its own three way competition? Will my Hoosiers improve as much as some experts say they will and make me sorry that I quit getting season tickets? 

  • HCHS golfers continue to improve...

    The Harrison County golfers have competed in a variety of different ways with the Fillies and the junior varsity as well as the varsity Breds playing in several matches. 

    On Wednesday, Aug. 25, the junior varsity faced Paris’ varsity and were defeated by 30 seven strokes. 

    It was valuable experience for the young group of junior varsity players, many of whom will make up the varsity for several years.

  • Middle school football drops two...

    The first-ever Bourbon County Colonel Classic was held Saturday afternoon as the seventh and eighth grade teams of Harrison and Bourbon counties met on the gridiron.  Bourbon County came away victorious in both games winning the seventh grade game 14-8, and the eighth grade game 44-20.

    The seventh grade team, coached by Eric Reed and Randolph Thomas, played very well, according to middle school head Coach Jim Carr. 

    “The touchdown that was called back on a procedure penalty was the difference in this game,” he noted.

  • Fillies Soccer continues to face...

    Harrison County’s Fillies continue to battle some of the top competition in the state as they work through the 2010 season. 

    On Sunday, the Fillies traveled to North Oldham High School to face the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers. 

    Elizabethtown, with a 3-1 record, defeated the Fillies by a 3-0 score as they scored twice in the first half on direct kicks. 

    One of these goals came as the Fillies’ defender slipped and fell allowing access to the goal.

  • Crows and crow have their places...

    I really have nothing to say about the bird called a crow, but the title was so catchy I had to use it. I do have something to say about eating crow. 

    Don’t take this as a surrender or a change of heart, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due.   

    The Reds of Cincinnati have played better baseball with more success than I ever dreamed possible, especially with Dusty Baker as manager. 

  • First-half turnovers spell...

    Nine turnovers and 15 penalties make it very hard to win. 

    It only took six seconds to get a five-yard penalty, which set the tone for the first half. 

    The Harrison County Thorobreds opened the scoring after the teams each had the ball one time without success. Eric Lewis intercepted a Matt Tuttle pass on the 10-yard line and ran it back to his own 30. 

    On the next play, back-up quarterback Tyler Martin, playing wide receiver, hit Shane Fowler on a 70-yard end-around pass play to make it 6-0 Harrison County.

  • Volleyball evens record at 2-2...

    Thursday night’s volleyball matches left Coach Bill Faulkner a little out of sorts after George Rogers Clark beat the Harrison County Fillies in two straight games to win the varsity match 2-0. 

    The Fillies dropped the first set 20-25, but had a 23-20 lead in the second only to lose by 23-25 to end the match. 

    “I was disappointed that we had a three-point lead and lost it,” said Faulkner. “We will work on this as a team.”

  • Golfers have matches with...

    Last Thursday, the junior varsity, the middle school and the Fillies golf teams traveled to the Carnico Country Club to face the Nicholas County Bluejacket squads. 

    The boys’ JV took the victory by a 30-stroke margin as they defeated Nicholas County 152 to 182. Jake Jones was rewarded for the hard work that he did last summer as he was the medalist for the day with a score of 44. 

    Zach Hernandez added a 52 and Peyton Browning a 54 for the Breds’ JV. Chris George led Nicholas with a 49.
