  • Fillies drop games to Tates...

    Coach Kim Furnish was sure that the Fayette Tournament was good for her team.  
    “Mariah Nichols’ injury was not good at all, but we learned quite a lot about the rest of the team in this tournament,” said the first-year coach. “We played two Lexington schools with largely an eighth grader, two freshmen, a sophomore and two seniors and improved each day.”  
    Nichols suffered her second concussion of the year on Monday afternoon against Boyle County and will be sidelined until mid-January more than likely.  

  • Fillies fall to Boyle County,...

    Monday evening started out with a 13-point run by the Lady Rebels of Boyle County and the Harrison County Fillies could not recover as they lost to the 7-2 12th Region opponent 71-58.  
    Sophomore center Jordan Doram picked up two fouls in the first minute and a half of the first period which caused her to have to leave the game with the score 10-4 in favor of the Lady Rebels.  
    Fouls were not the problem for the Fillies on this night however, but 23 first-half turnovers did them in for the game.  

  • Eighth grade remains undefeated...

    Harrison County’s Middle School teams are going in different directions at the end of 2011 as the eighth grade remained undefeated and the seventh grade lost four straight last week.  
    The eighth grade team began the period with a 50-28 blowout of Bourbon County.  
    Zach Pulliam led the way with 15 points, followed by Jovon Williams who netted 13.  Brock Jenkins contributed eight points while distributing the ball from the point guard position as the Colts led by as many as 27 points during the game.

  • Harrison County wrestlers...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestlers traveled to Newport Saturday and won five of five duals at the Newport Dual Meet.  
    The Breds took down Scott County, Holmes, Newport, Boone County and Grant County in what Coach Luke Tucker called “Taking care of business.”  
    “We have to get ready for a huge tournament in Lexington next week and this was an excellent preparation for that,” Tucker said. “Some of the top teams and individuals in the state will be there.”  

  • Have you heard enough about Tim...

    If ESPN radio would take the words Tim and Tebow from their broadcasts there would be about 12 hours of silence each day on the air waves.  
    Many of the broadcasters who openly predicted that Denver made a huge mistake drafting him now can’t praise him enough.
    The joke is that so many of them did not really want him to succeed so as not to counter their precious predictions.  

  • Fillies pressure Hounds for win...

    On Wednesday, the Harrison County Fillies grabbed their second win of the year as they utilized both a full- and half-court press against the Lady Hounds.  
    The presses caused several Paris turnovers and led to easy baskets for the Fillies early. The Fillies also carried out their offensive plan better than in some earlier games moving the ball well especially in transition.

    Bowlers continue domination of
    opponents, roll over Clark County
    Coach Petey Reynolds’ Harrison County High School bowlers defeated the girls’ and boys’ teams of Clark County Thursday at the Winchester bowling facility.  
    The Fillies bowlers won five of seven matches to remain undefeated as a team for the season with a 3-0 record. The Harrison County girls have won 16 of 21 matches in the year.  

  • Cynthiana Storm
  • Breds even record with 73-33...

    In a game that saw them take a 19-1 first-quarter lead, the Harrison County Thorobreds evened their season record at 3-3 with a 73-33 win over Mt. Olivet Deming Tuesday night.  
    It was a student “Black Out” on the Hilltop with a great crowd for a week night ball game and the Breds rewarded their following with a good overall team effort.
    The Thorobreds began the game with full and half court presses causing Deming turnovers and easy Harrison County baskets.  
    Senior forward Caleb Ford had 18 first-half points to lead the Breds.  

  • Homecoming a sweep for Fillies,...

    Lauren Jackson and Chris Muntz reign as Harrison County Homecoming Queen and King and they witnessed victories by both the Fillies and Breds over Nicholas County neighbors.
    The Fillies won by a 50-37 margin for their first victory of the season.  
    The Lady Jackets were playing without two starters, juniors Shannon Bretz and Reesa Martin, and the Fillies took advantage of some inexperienced players to jump out to an 11-4 first quarter advantage.
