    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. 

  • Thorobreds tame the Panthers 86-...

    After a bit of a slow start, the Harrison County Thorobreds turned up the defense and ran off with a 30-point win at Augusta. 

    The 8-5 Breds trailed for much of the first period before superior athletic ability allowed them to run off seven straight to end the period and take an 18-11. 

    Malcolm Thomas scored the final points in this period with a three, a lay in and a put back to give his team the lead.

  • Fillies fall to Madison Central

    The best team in the 11th Region may be a title that can be disputed, but a really good, deep, talented team cannot be when one is talking about Madison Central. 

    The Harrison County Fillies found out all about that Saturday as they traveled to Richmond and battled the Lady Indians. 

    The first quarter’s tempo was to the liking of the Fillies as they were able to scrap and battle and only trail by five at the first stop.

  • The dish on NFL playoffs, UK...

    It’s official!! The Jets were given the playoff berth. The Ravens, Green Bay and Philadelphia earned the wild cards and the Jets were given theirs.   I hope that the Bengals and Colts lose the first game they play. 

    Bobby Feeback was the guest on Let’s Talk Sports Saturday morning on WCYN. Between the calls and other interruptions, he was able to give a good account of what goes on with a student athletic trainer.  

    While the job has many exciting moments, it is a demanding and time consuming venture.

    Freshman fall to Lexington Catholic 65-54

    In a game that was much closer than the score indicates the Harrison County freshman team lost to Lexington Catholic by a 65-54 score Monday night. The loss dropped the freshman Breds to a 6-3 record for the year

    Harrison County trailed by only four at the end of the first quarter, but fell victim in the second to some hot three-point shooting by the Knights. Catholic stretched the lead to 13 at the half, 41-28, using marksmanship and a pressing defense. 

  • Harrison grapplers second in...

    The Harrison County Invitational Wrestling Tournament, affectionately known as the Rumble on the Hilltop, was held last Wednesday, Dec. 30. 

    A field of 10 teams from six regions and two states, including many of the finest wrestlers in the area, met on the Hilltop. 

    The meet featured pool play with five teams in each pool and the winner and runner-up from each pool facing off for the team and individual championships. 

  • Fillies drop three of four games...

    The Somerset Lady Jumpers were said to be among the top teams in the 12th Region. The Harrison County Fillies were entering the Bourbon County tourney coming off a good showing in Prestonsburg. 

    This was the opening game for both teams in the tournament Saturday at 4 p.m. and looked to be a tight match.  It was hardly a game at all. 

    Somerset jumped out to a 12-0 lead and was really never threatened as they won by a 73-46 margin. 

  • Breds lose overtime battle in...

    “We did not deserve to win, we shot poorly. We looked tired, our guards looked tired,” lamented Coach Mike Reitz after his team fell to Webster County 41-39 in overtime Tuesday night. 

    This was the second game in as many nights for the Harrison County Thorobreds as they played in the National Guard Classic at LaRue County High School.

    Poor shooting was the problem, which was due to poor shot selection, for the most part. 

    Webster County has a good defensive team aided by its ability to play nine players without missing a beat.

  • Wrestling team wins 5, loses 6...

    In the Region 7 Super Duals, Harrison County had some outstanding individual efforts and results, but over all injuries and Murphy’s Law led to a not so pleasing team total. 

    In the 12-team duals hosted by Montgomery County, the Thorobreds were matched in two days against 10 of the 11 opponents. 

    Harrison County started with a good match against the host Indians as they defeated Montgomery County by a 57-27 score. This match had to be on or before Dec. 16.

    Fillies runners up at Prestonsburg tourney

    The Harrison County Fillies played hard against Pulaski County last Wednesday, but came up on the short end of the 76-66 score. The Lady Maroons won the championship of the Prestonsburg Invitational Tourney with a 25 point fourth quarter against the exhausted Fillies.  

    The Fillies were playing their third game in two days as was Pulaski County and just simply ran out of gas in the last half.
