  • Harrison County wrestlers open...

    Harrison County High’s grapplers began the 2009-2010 season with an impressive 57-18 beating of the Madison Central Indians in Richmond Wednesday night. HCHS won 11 of the 14 bouts, four by forfeit. Madison Central is in only the second year of wrestling and Coach Russ Riegel feels that they will be a formidable opponent in coming years. 

  • Compliments to Red’s...

    I was surprised to see the number of people at Red’s Fest last Friday night. It was held at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati, which is a huge facility. There must have been 5,000 people there, most in Red’s garb and probably, all but me, big Red’s fans. 

    I will say that the Reds staff in charge of our interview area were really nice people and very helpful. Interviewing is not what I do best, but they did what they could to make us feel at home. 

  • Fillies defeat Bourbon for...

    The Harrison County Fillies picked up their first victory of the young season with a 57-47 win over Bourbon County Monday night on the Hilltop.   The Fillies improve their season record to 1-1, while Bourbon County drops to 1-2. 

    Bourbon County scored first on a 3-point basket by Sparks, but the Fillies tied it with 5:30 left in the period and at 4:42 left, took a lead on Kaitlin Johnson’s first 3-pointer of the game.

    Harrison freshmen runner-up in

    Bourbon tourney

    The Harrison County freshman boys, under the direction of Coach Larry Kendall, finished second Saturday in the Bourbon County Freshman Tourney. 

    Lexington Catholic bested the young Breds in the third game of the day by a 71-46 margin.

  • Wrestlers ready to tackle new...

    With the new season beginning Dec. 2, the Harrison County wrestling team is anxious to get started. 

    Coach Russ Riegel’s squad has some top notch veterans returning but, at the same time, lost heavily to graduation and other issues. 

    Graduated are five wrestlers who participated in the state meet during their high school careers.

    Breds open season at Commodore Classic

    The Harrison County Thorobreds open the 2009-10 basketball season Friday at 6 p.m. in Lexington. The Breds will be involved in the opening game Friday against the Somerset Briar Jumpers of the 12th region in the Commodore Classic held at Tates Creek High School.   

  • Harrison County basketballers...

    The 2009-10 edition of the Harrison County Thorobreds will be a mix of veterans and some talented, but unseasoned youth.  

    One veteran is long-time Harrison County coach Mike Reitz, who along with assistants Billy Custard, Larry Kendall, Dr. Stephen Moses, and Ronnie Spicer will work to blend this mix into a competitive force by March. 

    Seniors Marcus Custard, Jared Martin, Malcolm Thomas and Zack Turner are some of the experienced players who Reitz is counting on for leadership. 

  • Fillies turnover game at...

    The Harrison County Fillies opened the 2009-10 basketball season with a 46-36 loss Tuesday night at Frankfort High School. 

    The Fillies played even the first quarter despite committing eight turnovers in the first frame, many of the unforced variety. The first period also saw senior center Sherese Doram pick up two fouls, which put her on the bench for the remainder of the half. 

  • Tell City 78, Cannelton 30...

    I want my grandchildren and yours to experience this.  It won’t be exactly the same because the schools are different, the times are different, but the thrill can be the once in a lifetime experience that I remember.  

    When I was growing up in Tell City, Ind., a small river town in the southern part of the state, 30 miles from Owensboro, high school sports was king. Tell City isn’t all that small, about 10,000 people in its most populated time, but it is not all that big either. 

  • Final rec league basketball...

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Recreation Department will be having basketball sign-ups this Saturday at Sports Unlimited from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. This will be the final sign-up for kindergarten through sixth grade.
