  • Trial by media, not how it is...

    Ben Roethlisberger’s guilt remains in question. If nothing else, he is guilty of extremely poor judgment and of being too big for his britches. However, no state or federal laws contain any punishment for poor judgment, being a jerk, or any other things that are known for sure about Big Ben. 

    We can speculate about what he actually did with the young woman who was in the bar though she was under age. Of course, I know that being underage is not reason enough to be mistreated, I am just saying she was somewhere she wasn’t supposed to be. 

  • Good weather, 34 teams and...

    The 41st annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet caught a break from Mother Nature Saturday as the rain held off until the last event making the weather nice for the highly anticipated meet. 

    The field of 34 teams featured schools which figure to be very much in contention for regional and state honors at the end of the year.  

    This was the first invitational meet at the Harrison County Athletic Complex and coaches, athletes and fans continue to lavish praise upon the facility.

  • Thorobreds beat Pendleton 12-2...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds came back a little rusty from the week long lay off, but still were able to defeat the Pendleton County Wildcats 12-2 Tuesday afternoon.  

    Harrison County scored five runs in the bottom of the second on two hits, three walks and two Wildcat errors to start the rout. 

    The Wildcats did come back in the top of the third as they put together a hit, a walk and a fielder’s choice followed by another single to pick up their only earned run of the game.

  • Tennis team continues successful...

    Monday night at the Harrison County tennis courts, the Fillies and Thorobreds tennis teams smashed out a win over Nicholas County taking 11 of 12 matches. 

    The match featured an unusual mixed pairs win for Ashlyn Techau and Jade Jenkins as they defeated a boys pair of Scalf and Fryman for the Bluejackets. The boys matches were extremely one sided as all matches, but one was a 6-0 win for Harrison County. The other match was a 6-1 win. 

  • Fillies roll to 10th straight 10...

    Shirley Field once again hosted a tournament-type game as the atmosphere was electric for the Lexington Catholic versus Harrison County game.

    Catholic, sporting a modest 10-8 record entering the contest, is still highly regarded as a contender for district and regional crowns. They have played tough competition from eight of the regions in the state and have given a good account of themselves. So don’t let the record fool you, this is a quality opponent. 

  • Thorobreds rally falls short...

    When the Covington Scott Eagle players woke up Tuesday morning they probably pinched themselves to see if what happened Monday night was a dream. 

    After all, they had played in Harrison County against the powerful Thorobreds, who were 12-3 while they had a 6-10 season record, and Harrison County hardly ever loses at home. 

    Well, it wasn’t a dream as Scott High rolled to the Hilltop Monday afternoon and took home an 8-7 victory over Harrison County. 

  • Track teams participate in two...

    The Harrison County track teams ran into some tough competition in the Scott County all comers meet Tuesday, April 13. 

    This meet was one day after the teams returned from spring break and the rust was apparent. On top of the lay off, the teams participating were some of the area’s best, which led to the Thorobreds and Fillies not scoring as well as hoped.  Despite the rustiness, the Fillies finished third in the girls’ competition which had 10 teams trying for points.

  • Thorobreds hit four home runs in...

    Harrison County improved to 13-4 Tuesday night with a 10-5 home victory over the Bourbon County Colonels. 

    The Colonels entered the fray with a 13-4 mark of their own and with Harrison County on a two-game losing streak, figured to give the Breds a real tussle.

    Harrison County Invitational

    Track Meet Saturday

    The 41st annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet is this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m.

    The field for this meet always contains the most promising athletes in the central and north central part of the state in nearly every event.

  • Fillies take extra inning...

    The setting was much like a district or region game on the Hilltop at Shirley Field Thursday night. 

    Paul Laurence Dunbar brought a misleading 5-5 record in to face the 8-2 Fillies in a key contest for both teams.   

    A key contest for Harrison County because it was a good measuring stick to see where they stood in comparison to the state’s better programs, and key for Dunbar to bounce back from a disheartening defeat at the hands of the best team in Lexington, the Lafayette Lady Generals by a narrow 4-0 score.
