  • Harrison Co. wins at Woodford,...

    Monday’s and Tuesday’s games had a lot in common for the Thorobreds. In both games, the winning team came from behind with a big effort in the fourth quarter to win the game. 

    For each game, the winning team had a senior lead them by scoring a lot in the fourth quarter. Fortunately for the Thorobreds, that is where the similarity ended. 

  • Thorobreds race past Bourbon...

    In a game where the only question was the score, the Harrison County Thorobreds dashed by Bourbon County Friday night on the Hilltop. 

    The Breds scored the first six points and stretched that to a 15-6 first quarter score.  Malcolm Thomas scored eight points and had four rebounds in the first stanza to lead the Breds while Bourbon as a team scored six. 

  • Harrison wrestlers 3rd in...

    The Harrison County Wrestling team kept its good season going by taking third place in the 21-team Capitol City Classic Saturday. The Breds had three first place finishes, one second and one fourth to tally 139 total points. 

    The winners were Josh Moss in the 140 pound class, Chris Brunker in 145 pound and Brandon Barnett in the 189 pound class.

  • ‘Football is a rough...

    Kentucky is No. 1 and well deserving of the top spot. Okay, I got that over with.

    I watched the Vikings give the game to the Saints Sunday night with my wife and answered many interesting questions. Most of them concern Brett Favre and why he was getting hammered on almost every pass in the second half. 

    Can they do that? 

    Why does he stay in there and let them knock him down? 

    Peyton Manning ducks down to the ground when he sees them coming, why doesn’t Favre? 

  • Fillies split games over weekend

    Harrison County’s Fillies played perhaps their best game of the year Friday night, but came away on the short end of the score at Campbell County. 

    The Lady Camels, who are thought to be a top four team in the region, could never pull away and edged the Fillies 63-55. 

    Harrison County trailed by six at the end of the first period but a balanced attack for the most part brought the Fillies back in the second. At the half, the game was knotted at 23. 

  • Cheerleaders to host KAPOS 10th...

    The Harrison County Varsity Cheerleaders will host the 10th Region KAPOS competition on Saturday, Jan. 30. The doors will open at 9 a.m. for the 12-team event. Admission is $6 per person. The winners will advance to the state competition at Bowling Green on Feb. 20. Last Saturday, four of Harrison County’s cheerleaders competed in the Just Keep Dreaming Stunt Competition held at Bourbon County. Seniors Abby Cunningham, Emily Kendall and Samantha Shirley along with junior Julie Henson were in action during the meet.

  • Scott Eagles too tall for Fillies

    Scott High’s Eagles came to town Tuesday evening and defeated the Harrison County Fillies by a 44-33 margin. 

    The Fillies game plan was superb. The one thing that Coach Jason Crisp warned his team about came true in a big way. 

    “I told them if we could keep Stinson from having a big game, we could win this game,” Crisp said. 

    Unfortunately, sophomore Taylor Stinson took advantage of the Fillies’ double team defense on 6-foot-4 Lauren Tibbs and poured in 21 points for the night.

  • 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.
