  • Harrison County’s...

    Brandon Barnett was favored to win going into the 7th Region Tournament last weekend and he did not disappoint. Josh Moss was third seeded, but he defeated both the first and second seed to give Harrison County two regional winners. 

    The Thorobreds finished seventh in team points as Woodford County won its third straight regional crown.

  • Fillies lose two heartbreakers

    Unlike the snow, Harrison County’s Fillies couldn’t get the last shot to drop and lost heartbreakers on Friday and Saturday. Friday night at home the Fillies lost to Paris 51-49 and Saturday they traveled to West Jessamine and fell 44-41.

    Friday night the Lady Greyhounds jumped out to a big lead outscoring the Fillies 17-6 in the first quarter. More than half of the quarter was gone before the Fillies scored, and they were already down six points. 

  • Recreation baseball sign ups...

    Recreation baseball sign ups Saturday

    Harrison County Recreation Department director, Rick Chasteen, has announced that sign ups for this year’s baseball leagues will begin Saturday. The sign ups will be at Sports Unlimited from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 20.

    This includes Little League, coach pitch, tee-ball, instructional and pigtail softball.

  • Class sports are a huge mistake

    I saw where a couple of coaches were asking the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to look into having class baseball and other sports like they do football. 

    This would, of course, not include basketball which already has a class A tournament. Besides, the basketball tournament is the big cash cow that operates the rest of the tournaments that do not pay their own way. 

  • Royals trump Breds Friday night

    The Harrison County Thorobreds hosted one of the favorites to win the 10th Region Friday night and Mason County showed one and all why they are rated so highly.  

    In a game where Harrison County never led, Mason County pulled away to an easy 71-51 victory. Easy, not to say the Thorobreds didn’t try hard, but like the Clark County game, they never could get shots to fall early and just kept falling further behind. 

  • Wrestling region this weekend at...

    The large number of schools participating has caused the wrestling region to be changed to a Friday night and Saturday format. Friday night starts at 6 p.m.; Saturday at 10 a.m. 

    Harrison County will have four wrestlers in the top four seeds in their weight classes along with 11 others who will compete in hopes of grabbing some points for the Thorobreds.

  • Harrison County freshmen take...

    The Harrison County boys’ freshman basketball team defeated both Pendleton and Nicholas counties to win the 38th District Championship last week.

    The games were played in Nicholas County last Thursday. The first game saw the young Thorobreds pull out to a 12-point lead in the first period and continue to add to it as the game progressed. The Breds, once again, used their superior bench to keep fresh players in the game to out man the freshman Wildcats.  

  • Biography of Jock Sutherland out...

    Stuart Warner, a professor at Case Western Reserve University, has written a biography of Charles, “Jock” Sutherland entitled “Jock: A Coach’s Story,” which will be published by Wind Publications this month.  Warner also is a very accomplished writing coach, as he has written or edited three Pulitzer Prize- winning entries and edited three other Pulitzer finalists.

    This book is about the legendary Kentucky sports figure Jock Sutherland, who was the basketball coach at Harrison County for seven years.

  • Harrison County junior varsity...

    Led by eighth grader Jordan Doram’s 17-point, 10-rebound game, the Harrison County Fillies junior varsity defeated Deming to win the 38th District tournament Sunday. 

    Deming defeated Pendleton County to earn a spot in the finals, but the Fillies outscored them 43-37. Ashley Coppage added 12 points and Tiffany Snider had eight points and seven rebounds to also lead the way to victory. 

    Coach Christine Garnett said the whole team played very well in order to earn the victory.

  • District pairings set for...

    Tuesday, Feb. 23, will be the first night of action for both the Fillies and the Thorobreds in the 38th District tournament.  The tourney begins with Deming and Pendleton County facing off on Monday, Feb. 22. The girls’ game is at 6:30 p.m. and the boys’ game is at 8:15 p.m. Game times are the same for Tuesday when Harrison County and Nicholas County face each other in girls and boys action.
