  • Harrison County baseball...

    Coach Mac Whitaker and the Harrison County Thorobreds baseball squad are preparing for a season full of games with top-notch competition. 

    The schedule not only has the much-anticipated trip to Las Vegas, but also many of the better teams of Kentucky to play both here and on the road. 

    The Bishop Gorman’s Easter Classic in Las Vegas will be held April 7-10, which will be after the Harrison County squad has already played at least seven games. Of course, all of the games are weather permitting.

  • Tennis team returns solid core...

    The Harrison County tennis coaches greeted a solid group of returning veterans as they prepare to begin another season on the Hilltop.

    First-year Coach Kara Mattox and her veteran assistant coaches, Betsy and Dr. Jim Clyde, Phyllos and Dr. Roy Ross, and conditioning coach Ron Markley have 20 girls and 11 boys competing for time in the upcoming matches.

  • Thorobreds’ season...

    The basketball season came to an end for the Harrison County Thorobreds Thursday night as they fell to George Rogers Clark in the opening game of the 10th Region tourney. 

    The game was never close as GRC scored the first eight points of the game, and after a Jared Martin three pointer, the next seven points to lead 15-3 at the end of the first period.

  • Harrison archers repeat as...

    The Harrison County archery program continued its dominance over the region as each team shot its way to the regional crown Saturday at Harrison County Middle School. The Region 8 tournament featured elementary, middle and high school competitors vying for the top five positions in each division. In addition to first place team honors, Harrison County won 26 of 30 individual awards.

  • The sun comes up the next day

    When I was a young boy growing up in the quaint river town of Tell City, Ind., I was involved in sports of all kinds.  Basketball was my favorite back then with baseball a close second. The grade school that I went to didn’t play football so, while I enjoyed watching it on television, I really didn’t have a lot of coaching until high school.

  • Faulkner leads Lady Govs to...

    After being a shooting guard and a pretty good one for her career, Brooke Faulkner accepted a new role at Austin Peay this season. The 2006 Harrison County graduate took the point guard spot, reluctantly at first, but grew into one of the finer point guards in the OVC.

    The proof is in the results as the Lady Govs are on their way to the NCAA tournament for the second straight year after winning the OVC Tournament Saturday night 69-60 over regular season champ Eastern Illinois.

    Pairings announced for

    10th Region boys

    The draw for the 10th Region Tournament was held Sunday and the Harrison County Thorobreds will open the first session Thursday at 6:30 p.m. facing region favorite George Rogers Clark. The two teams met in Clark County on Jan. 12, with the Cardinals handing the Breds an 86-29 defeat. George Rogers Clark’s record is 24-6 while the Breds come into the region with a 16-12 mark.

  • Lots of power returns for HCHS...

    Coach Christine Garnett will field a team of veterans for the 2010 softball season at Harrison County High School. This is a team of veterans that can really hit the ball for power and a high average that also has senior leadership. 

    Sure, gone from last year’s team which finished 29-5 are two talented players, Brittany Murphy and Charley Hatfield, but seven starters return. 

    Murphy and Hatfield were players with experience from their middle school days forward and both good batters and team leaders. 

  • Sportsmanship: When did we lose...

    It may have started disappearing when athletes started doing little dances to draw attention to themselves when they scored a touchdown. It may have started disappearing when soccer players took their shirts off and ran around the field after they scored.

    I don’t know when sportsmanship went away, I just know it’s gone. 

    Sure players line up after basketball games to shake hands, and football coaches walk across the field to shake hands after a game, at least in college and professional games, but it is for show and not sincere in most cases.
