  • Who turned on the lights in this...

    On the virtual eve of the 2012-13 high school basketball season and all of the excitement that is expected this year in Harrison County in both the girls’ and boys’ programs, I want to report on my Friday night experience in Harlan County.
    I think sometimes some Kentuckians look down their noses at our brothers and sisters in the southeastern part of the state.
    “Barefoot Hillbillies” they are called by some of the liberal blue bloods in some cases.  

  • Fillies drop scrimmage with...

    The Frankfort scrimmage was a growing experience for the young Harrison County Fillies as they were paired with one of the best girls’ basketball teams in the 8th Region, South Oldham.  
    The Lady Dragons were region runners-up last season and return four seniors and three juniors from that squad.  Coach Christy Higdon’s squad put a lot of pressure on the Fillies’ guards, which led to problems right off the opening tip.

  • HCMS takes on Scott County in...

    Shelbi Morris dives for the ball Tuesday as the HCMS Fillies took on Scott County.

  • Breds split scrimmages, prepared...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds played two scrimmages last week in preparation for Wednesday’s opener at Maysville St. Patrick’s tiny gymnasium.  
    The Warriors of Pulaski Southwestern visited the Hilltop last Tuesday night for the first scrimmage and the Breds traveled to Grant County on Saturday and played the Braves.
    The Tuesday scrimmage featured last year’s state semi finalists in the Warriors and while they graduated four seniors, they still look formidable.

  • ‘Meet the Breds and Fillies’ has...

    Several hundred fans filled the stands Friday night as the winter sports program participants at Harrison County High School were introduced and, in basketball’s case, scrimmaged for the spectators.
    The evening was started with an introduction of Coach Luke Tucker’s wrestling squad, who came to the high school gym straight from practice at Southside.  
    This was followed by a couple of the bowlers from the Harrison County High School bowling team and the mention of the archery group who were not in attendance.

  • Fillies lose scrimmage to East...

    Basketball’s regular season is fast approaching and the Harrison County Fillies are working hard to prepare.  
    The young Harrison County girls traveled to Scott County Saturday to face the Lady Jags of East Jessamine in a scrimmage-formatted game.
    The junior varsity Fillies played two 10-minute halves with a continuous clock, which barely allowed for any basketball to be played.  
    The final score was 13-10 in favor of East Jessamine in the abbreviated contest.  
    Kassidy Cook led Harrison County with six points.

  • A Thanksgiving tradition from...

    The shopping is done for the big Thanksgiving meal and watching Patti carry it all in made me think of the good old days when I was young and the traditions that we had.

    Thorobreds scrimmage Southwestern
    Tuesday, travel to Grant Co. Saturday
    The Harrison County Thorobreds were scheduled to scrimmage Tuesday (too late for this edition) on the Hilltop against the best team in the 12th Region, the Southwestern Warriors.  Southwestern played on Saturday morning last winter in the state semi finals before losing to eventual state champ Trinity and have many of those players returning for this year
