  • Fillies season over as they drop...

    In what could only be called a lackluster performance, the Harrison County Fillies lost the first round of the 38th District to Nicholas County, 42-33.

    The Bluejackets, who lost to the Fillies 63-46 on Dec. 14, dominated this game. Harrison County’s only offensive threat all night was senior Kaitlin Johnson who scored 16 points on four three pointers and four-of-six from the line. 

    Nicholas County jumped out to a 6-0 lead at the start as senior Petria Mitchell beat the defense down the floor for some easy baskets.

  • Fillies run afoul in Powell...

    In a game where the home team shot 54 free throws, the Harrison County Fillies dropped an overtime thriller to Powell County, 82-78, Thursday night. 

    The game featured an outstanding scoring performance by Fillies senior Kaitlin Johnson as she scored 29 points in the losing effort. 

    Harrison County jumped out to an early four-point lead and stretched it to five at one point before Powell County came back to tie the score at the end of the first quarter at 16.

  • Thorobreds close out regular...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds ended the regular season with a 15-11 record as they won their last two games last week. The Breds traveled to Frankfort on Wednesday night and came away a 67-61 winner in a hotly contested game. They followed that game with a win at Montgomery County Friday night 58-32 putting forth an exceptional effort.

    On Wednesday, the Thorobreds trailed only by an early 2-0 deficit before scoring eight straight and taking a lead they would not relinquish for the evening except for a tie at 57 late in the game.

    The first period was a Jekyll and Hyde performance by each team as first Harrison County took a 10-2 lead only to have Nicholas County come back to within two at the end of the period, 12-10.

  • Barnett brings home Region 7...

    Harrison County’s Brandon Barnett was the only state champion from Region 7, which is central Kentucky. 

    The Harrison County junior did his imitation of Rocky villain Ivan Drago, encouraged by Coach Mitch Mattox, and went for the blond hair style from the movie.

    Fortunately, he wrestled more like Rocky and brought home the state championship. 

  • Harrison County freshman 10th...

    The Harrison County freshman boys completed a most successful season by winning the 10th Region championship Sunday at Mason County. The youthful Breds defeated Montgomery County and Mason County to bring home the trophy.

    The semi-final match up against Montgomery County was really never close as Harrison County applied a full court press from the start and pulled away.  

  • 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.
