  • Thorobreds open season with 33-...

    Harrison County was 8-0 in its football win column against Grant County going into Saturday night’s Hometown Pharmacy/Thorobred Bowl tussle with the Braves.
    That record can now be 9-0 as the Breds rolled up 455 yards of total offense in a thorough 33-14 whipping of the neighbors to the northwest.  
    Senior quarterback Joe Korona was named player of the game for the Breds as he threw for 164 yards and ran for another 118 to lead the way for the Harrison County squad.  

  • Soccer Breds close out Thorobred...

    Coach Nick Hill was upbeat yet philosophical after the Thorobreds won their first match of the season in three tries on Saturday night.  
    “We could have been three wins and no losses if we would have played like we did tonight,” he said. “The players realized that the modified kickball they were playing was not going to win anything.”  

  • Fillies soccer loses to Boone,...

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Boone County last Wednesday and lost a 2-0 battle with the Lady Rebels.  
    Boone County scored early and the Fillies battled back with several near misses on goal during the match. Boone County scored again with four minutes to play with their second goal to pull out the victory.  
    The Lady Rebels stand at 3-1 for the year after Monday night’s 6-0 defeat of Fillies’ region rival Montgomery County.
    Monday night the Fillies played host to the undefeated Lady Jaguars of East Jessamine.  

  • Cheerleading experience great...

    I want to cover several different areas in this column and will start with the cheerleader camp held last week that culminated with the little ones getting to cheer at halftime of the Harrison County/Grant County football game.  
    My granddaughter, Cecilia, attended and participated in the camp and I believe was the youngest one there at just barely 4. She had a great time and was following along with the varsity cheerleaders pretty well the best I could tell.

    Volleyball team remains undefeated
    The Harrison County volleyball team rolled to a two-set victory Thursday night over a talented Fleming County squad 25-18 and 25-13. The second set was 17-5 when Coach Bill Faulkner began substituting more freely to gain experience for his younger players.  
    “We came out a little flat in the first set against really good competition,” said Faulkner following the game. “I reminded the team that we had worked too hard to play like this and they turned it around in the second set.”

  • Soccer Breds drop 4-0 opener to...

    The night got off to a late start with West Jessamine 30 minutes late for the first game and it never got any better for the Thorobreds as they fell 4-0 to Newport Central Catholic.  
    The first match of the Thorobred Classic was won by West Jessamine, 1-0, over Bourbon County in an affair marred with red and yellow cards throughout.  
    Bourbon County had one player dismissed for intentionally stepping on a West Jessamine player and with 49 seconds left in the game, playing one short caught up with them as they lost 1-0.

  • Fillies Soccer opens with 3-0...

    The youthful Harrison County Fillies started the new season Monday night with a hard-fought 3-0 loss to northern Kentucky power house Dixie Heights.  
    The 5A Lady Colonels were too powerful for the Fillies to hold out of the net.  
    The Fillies played well overall, but youth and inexperience at many positions led to their eventual downfall.  

  • Football Breds fall in final...

    Franklin County showed why it is the eighth rated team in 5A football on Friday night as they scored six times in the scrimmage in Frankfort against the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The Thorobreds had the ball first and ran some running plays with good results before changing gears and working on the passing game.  
    Using the scrimmage to find areas that needed work was the plan for the Thorobreds, and Coach Mark Carroll was satisfied that they have things to work on before the season starts on Saturday.
