Today's Sports

  • It’s time to take the...

    It’s down to the final four in the NFL and I was surprised by three of the four winners.  So I will not talk about that this week except to say I am for the Colts and Saints. I am willing to overlook Drew Brees being Purdue alum because there are two Indiana University players on the Saints. 

    I wish more people would go to the high school ball games.

    The basketball gym does not have a track to stay off of, there isn’t a bad seat in the house and the product in both boys and girls is entertaining. 

  • Bred’s wrestlers...

    In what Coach Russ Riegel determined to be the low point of the season the Harrison County Thorobred wrestling team was soundly defeated Wednesday at Campbell County. The Breds faced the Camels of Campbell County and a team from Mt. Healthy of Ohio.

    The first session of the day with Campbell found the Bred grapplers only winning two matches as they fell by a 64-10 margin. 

  • Camels send Breds to third...

    Malcolm Thomas’ running lay up with 1.8 seconds left fell off the rim and the Harrison County Thorobreds went down to defeat at the hands of the Camels of Campbell County Tuesday night. 

    This was the third straight defeat and the second where Harrison County felt like it should have won. 

    The Breds led at the end of the first quarter after trailing early in the game.  Thomas hit for seven points in the first period as the Breds took a 14-11 lead.

    Indoor track action in full swing

    Harrison County has begun the indoor track season participating in an event at Mason County last Saturday. Caleb Reeder was victorious in the 55 meter hurdles in 09.16 seconds and finished eighth in the 55 meter dash. 

  • Fillies stop losing streak at...

    The Harrison County Fillies played Montgomery County last Wednesday, Mason County Saturday and traveled to Deming on Tuesday night as they worked through a busy stretch of the schedule.

    Montgomery County faced a determined Fillies squad who played them tough the entire night.

    In this turnover-plagued game, the heavily favored Lady Indians struggled against the Harrison County zone for the majority of the time.  Harrison trailed by only one at the end of the first period and were still only one down at half 24-23.

    Youth teams travel

    this weekend

    to Fleming County

    The Harrison County third through the sixth grade teams will hit the road again this weekend for a tournament in Fleming County. 

  • Wrestlers finish high at Tates...

    Harrison County’s wrestlers led by junior Brandon Barnett’s first place finish took seventh of 21 teams at the Tates Creek Invitational Saturday.  Sophomore Anthony Shirley and senior Chris Brunker each took a second place medal to add to the Breds tally.

    The match featured some of the better teams in the area with both complete units and individuals who will be top competitors for state honors. 

  • Lady Bears cool Fillies on the...

    Harrison County’s defense held Bracken to 21 points for the first three periods Wednesday night but the Lady Polar Bears scored 18 in the final period to pull out a 39-36 victory.   

    The game, which was played Jan. 6, was a free throw shooting contest as Bracken County went to the line 36 times hitting on 22. 

  • Thorobreds hammered at Clark, 86...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds faced the highly rated George Rogers Clark Cardinals Tuesday night in Winchester and were given a sound beating, 86-29. 

    The Cardinals came into the game sporting a 13-4 record, having played a tough schedule which included the King of the Bluegrass in Louisville.  There was no doubt that they had earned the lofty ranking as they pulled away from the start in this outing.

    Clark scored first on a basket by Robbie Stenzel but Jared Martin connected on a three to give Harrison County its first and only lead of the evening. 

  • Barnett death is loss for...

    Harrison County lost a really good man last week when Kenton Barnett passed away. 

    I would say when a person looks in the dictionary under gentle giant you might see his picture.   

    Since I am not a native, as most know, I only knew Kenton for a short time, but I never met a better man. I put him right there with John Swinford as people who are class gentlemen.
