  • Ten years ago, how we remember

    Sept. 11, 2001 is a day that changed the United States of America forever.  
    It has been interesting how the sports world has reacted to the 10th anniversary this week and the rumors around some of the action taken by the NFL.  
    First, let me promise you that my article will not be an apology to the Arab world for being pro American. In fact, anyone who knows me knows that I fly a flag at my home and don’t care who knows that American is right and if someone doesn’t like how we are there is an exit where they came into the country.  

  • Harrison County fumbles chance...

    The first quarter of the Mason County vs. Harrison County football game at the Athletic Complex Friday was a lesson in how not to play.  
    The first two possessions ended in fumbles and Mason County’s next possession climaxed with a safety for the hometown Thorobreds as Cory Webber tackled the punter in the end zone.  
    After the safety, the Royals’ free kick put the ball on the Mason County 35-yard line and a short run, a holding penalty and two incomplete passes found the Breds punting from the Royals’ 49.

    Cross country runners
    participate in Born to Run
    Twenty-two of the nearly 400 runners in the Cynthiana-Harrison County Chamber of Commerce Born to Run were members of the Harrison County Cross Country team.  
    The race, which was won by David Robeson of the Bullard team, was for runners of all ages and covered the 5K distance in times of 18 minutes, 20 seconds to 1 hour, 3 minutes and 27 seconds.    

  • Born to Run 5K
  • Breds lose a couple of close...

    In what would have to be fate, the Harrison County Soccer Thorobreds dropped two one-goal losses to George Rogers Clark and Sayre on Thursday and Tuesday nights.
    The GRC loss was a very physical-style game which featured offensive domination by the Thorobreds that resulted in a 15-2 shot on goal advantage but still a loss for the Breds.  
    A mental lapse early gave the Cardinals a lead but right before half Daniel Klapheke tapped in a screaming shot by Kyle Foster to make the game a tie at the intermission.

  • Soccer Breds drop two matches to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds Soccer team continued to lose some tough matches this week as they fell to Scott County (5-1-1) by a 5-0 score and to undefeated Rowan County (5-0-2) by a 2-1 score on Tuesday. Both games were played at LeBus Field.  
    The Scott County match particularly baffled Coach Nick Hill.
    “We revert back to our modified kick ball and did not at all go by the game plan,” he lamented. “We are having communication issues where we seem to know what to do in practice, but it does not transfer over to the games.”  

  • Cardinals soar over Thorobreds...

    The undefeated and high flying Scott County Cardinals scored three touchdowns and a field goal in the second quarter en route to a 52-0 win over the Harrison County Thorobreds Friday night in Georgetown.  
    The 3-0 Cardinals have outscored their opponents by a 152-12 margin in their three wins this season as they had previously defeated Seneca and Webster County, both in Georgetown.

  • Cross country season busy...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County cross country teams continued to run a busy schedule even though the heat index was near cancellation levels last week.  
    Thursday found both the high school and middle school teams in Wilmore at the Asbury College/Chick fil A Meet.
    The Harrison County squads were instructed by Coach Danny Simpson to run conservatively in the heat, which resulted in not as favorable results as one may have hoped for in this meet.
