    Soccer scrimmage ends in a tie,

    season starts Tuesday at LeBus Field

    Both the varsity and junior varsity scrimmage games ended in a 1-1 tie Tuesday night at LeBus Field. The games were delayed at the start by the heat index and started about an hour late. Kyle Foster scored late in the varsity match on an assist by Josh Young to tie the game. 

    In the junior varsity, Jordan Gasser scored a corner kick but the opposition came back to tie. 

  • Eighth grade Colts to continue...

    Eight grade Colt football coaches Jim Carr and Mark Jenkins are in their second year of coaching together with the soon-to-be Thorobreds. 

    “Our job is to prepare the young men to play high school football with a focus on technique and fundamentals,” said Coach Carr. “We will be doing the same things as the varsity Thorobreds with the offense and defense.” 

    The eighth graders are in their second week of practice with a three-day mini camp under their belt already.

  • Breds defeat alums 5-2 in soccer...

    For the first time since 1999, the varsity Breds defeated the alums in the annual pre-season scrimmage. 

    Kyle Foster and Joe Thomas each scored two goals for the Breds and Taylor Bolin added one as the better conditioned Thorobreds out classed the veterans. 

  • Scrimmage set for Friday with...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds football squad heads northeast to Rowan County Friday night for a 6 p.m. scrimmage. 

    This will be a full-contact scrimmage with three regular 12-minute quarters and one quarter with a continuous clock, so not to be a regulation game. There will be no extra periods. 

    Ticket prices are $4 for adults and $2 for students.  After last Friday’s Maroon/White game, many questions have been answered and some mistakes noted and corrected, but the special teams still have some questions. 

  • Sportsmanship in high school,...

    Before every high school football game, a sportsmanship statement is read to the players and over the public address system in the stadium. 

    Because it is long and there is a lot of noise, it is often not heard in the stadium and many officials choose to paraphrase rather than read the whole statement to the captains. 

    As football season approaches, I thought it would be appropriate to write it in my column so if someone actually reads my column, they will know what is being said on Friday night.

  • Fillies Volleyball opens season...

    The Harrison County Fillies dropped a hard fought match Monday night to the Lady Pirates of Powell County, two games to one. 

    Powell County returned seven seniors and eight juniors from last year’s 17-9 squad and took revenge for the 2-0 loss handed them in the 2009 season by the Fillies. 

    The Lady Pirates won the first game in overtime, 24-26, as the Fillies led early, 5-2, but fell behind and fought to tie at 24 each before falling.

    Maroon and White Scrimmage is Friday at Harrison County Sports Complex

    The regular football season is two weeks away and the Harrison County Thorobreds are preparing by having the annual Maroon and White Scrimmage Friday night at 7 p.m. 

    The night will begin with the freshmen and some of the junior varsity squad dividing into two teams and playing for the first one-half hour. 

    The varsity Breds will then take the field and play a scrimmage using a split squad much as they did during the camp at Campbellsville University last weekend. 

  • NASCAR: The sport is becoming...

    I like to watch NASCAR on television almost as well as going to the races. I have been lucky enough to go to Bristol and Talladega to see live races and have also been to an Indy car race in Lexington, Ohio. 

  • Breds ready to take the...

    With a year of the new Mark Carroll offense under their belt, the Harrison County Thorobreds offense is ready to set the tempo and put some points on the board this season. 

    Last year was a learning process for the team and coaches alike, but this year everyone knows each other and the offense better and plan to make scoring a regular occurrence. 

    This year’s team will be missing some key elements from last year.

  • Golfers start season with tough...

    The Harrison County boys’ golf team took to the links for the first time this year on Monday and Tuesday and finished 18th in a 24-team field in the Flyer Classic. 

    The two-day event, which featured the top teams in the central Kentucky and Louisville areas was played at the Griffin Gate Golf Course and Juniper Hills Golf Course. 

    Coach Jason Crisp was a little disappointed with the first day’s scores, but the team came back on the second day with a respectable 322 compared to Monday’s 335.
