  • Brossart edges Breds in physical...

    The Hilltop gym was a buzz last Wednesday night as a good crowd anticipated the regional rivalry being renewed between the Bishop Brossart Mustangs and the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The junior varsity preliminary set the stage as the Breds, after trailing for the majority of the game, came back for a 47-38 win in a tough, physical battle.  
    Junior Grant Carr led the way with 14 points as defensive pressure was the key ingredient in the come-from-behind win.

  • It is the most important thing...

    When you live to be relatively old, you run into people who affect how you think and what is important and what isn’t.  
    Most of the time these people are your elders so they pass on before you do leaving you to mourn and also reflect on what it was that made them so important to you.  
    This happened to me again this week as my long time friend and fellow football official John Swinford passed away.
    John was many things to many different people, a husband, a friend, a father, a brother, as well as just an all around good man.

    Corinth Lake to remain closed
    through Feb. 16
    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is extending the closure of Corinth Lake in Grant County through Feb. 16.
    Fisheries biologists with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife plan to spray the 96-acre lake with a chemical designed to eliminate gizzard shad. The chemical treatment was originally scheduled to occur this week, but is being delayed due to poor weather conditions. The treatment has been rescheduled for next week if weather conditions allow.

  • HCHS Freshmen win 3rd straight...

    The Harrison County High School freshman team three-peated in the district tournament Thursday night as they won for the third consecutive year.  
    The district tournament was hosted by Nicholas County and the first-year Bluejackets were the first opponent for the young Thorobreds.  
    This was the second meeting for the two teams this season.    
    On Thursday night, the young Harrison County boys featured a balanced attack to lead for the entire game.  

  • Breds lose at Campbell Co., win...

    The old saying “He who laughs last, laughs best” could have been changed to “He who has last run laughs best” on Wednesday night when the Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Campbell County to battle the Camels.  
    This was a game of runs and the Camels had the last one as they pulled out a hard-fought 67-58 win over the Breds.  
    This was the second of three games that the Breds have played without starting center, senior Tyler Wagner.

  • Bowlers finish season on high...

    “We had a great year this season rebounding from the loss of some great bowlers from last year,” said Coach Petey Reynolds about the 2012-13 Harrison County Bowling team. “The kids took the challenge and stepped up on both sides.”
    The individuals stepped up in a big way last weekend at Eastland Lanes in Lexington.  
    For the Thorobreds, the four top average bowlers from the season competed in the region and ended the day bowling against one another for the region championship.  

  • Fillies lose 2 more with losses...

    The Harrison County Fillies continued to struggle during the season with losses at Pendleton County Friday night, 54-48, and a disheartening 82-50 loss to George Rogers Clark on Monday night.  
    On Friday night, Pendleton County took advantage of five first quarter Fillies’ turnovers and their own dominant rebounding to lead 20-11 at the end of the first quarter.  
    Only six Lady Cat miscues in the opening period kept them from taking a bigger advantage.

  • A dream come true

    There has been a lot going on lately with family life much of it not so good which made this article easier to write.
