  • Invitational Cross Country meet...

    The annual Harrison County Invitational Cross Country Meet will be held this afternoon at the Cynthiana Country Club.

    According to Harrison County coach Danny Simpson, the CCC venue is a fan favorite.

    “Spectators and teams really like coming to this meet,” said Simpson. “It is a challenging course for the runners and it is fan friendly as spectators can see almost the entire race and not have to move around a whole lot.”

  • Breds ice historic come-from-...

    Last Friday night, the Bourbon County Colonels invaded the Hilltop for an all-important district game against the Thorobreds. The Colonels entered the game with a record of 4-3 overall and 1-1 in the district while the Breds were 3-4 and 1-0 in district play.

    On top of all this, it’s Bourbon County. For as long as these two schools have existed, it has been THE rivalry game that you throw out all the records and just go “at it.”

    Regardless of the sport, it’s like the Cowboys vs. Redskins, Yankee’s vs. Red Sox, UK vs. Louisville.

    This past Friday’s Harrison/Bourbon clash on the Hilltop was arguably one of the most exciting high school football games I’ve seen. Huge momentum swings, dramatic plays, a last second field goal. You name it, this game had it. It reminds me of why high school sports are so fun. Unlike the sros and sometimes college, high school sports are so unpredictable and for $5, it’s pretty cheap entertainment.

    As mentioned in this week’s story, this was the largest comeback in Harrison County football history for victory as they trailed 21-0.

  • Fillies take on Lady Colonels in...

    A Kassy Barnett goal barely eight minutes into the game stood up as Harrison County got past St. Patrick, 1-0, in the first round of the four-team Girl’s 12th Regional Soccer Tournament at Stonerside Field in Paris on Tuesday night.

    In the first game on Tuesday night, Bourbon County had an easy time with Grant County, blitzing the 23rd District runner-up, 7-1.

  • Breds trample Wildcats in final...

    It had been two weeks since the Thorobreds had taken to the gridiron due to a flu epidemic that forced Harrison County Schools to close. Eager to shake off two straight home losses, the Breds were chomping at the bit after this unexpected hiatus to get back on track. Add to the mix that the game was moved to Saturday because of alumni activities as well as it being the first district contest and you had to wonder what effect it would have on Coach Mark Carroll’s team.

    The Breds have struggled a bit this season on converting extra points, but not last Friday against Pendleton County where they used three different kickers to combine for a perfect five for five. Daniel Klapheke and Joe Korona were both two for two and Justin Fryman was one for one.

    The 100-yard interception return last week by Malcolm Thomas broke 40-plus year old record of Tom Dixon, who returned one 90 yards back in the mid 60’s.

  • Fillies’ volleyball...

    The Fillies volleyball team will battle Deming for the district title tonight at 7 p.m. at Bracken County.

    Despite a win or lose, Coach Bill Faulkner said the team will head to regionals next week at Campbell County.

    “I think we’re the top three or four in the region if we play like we’ve been playing,” Faulkner said Wednesday morning.

    Faulkner said several teams in the region are suffering from the loss of good players - an injury loss at Highlands and the loss of five Division 1 seniors at Newport Catholic.

  • Fillies continue in district play

    One soccer season has ended, while another forges ahead.

    The Fillies are still alive in 24th District play and the boys ended their season on Monday.

    The Fillies defeated George Rogers Clark 2-1 on Tuesday in the first round of the district, which is being held at Clark County.

    “It was a good win,” said Coach Kim Jenkins. “I knew it was going to be tough to beat them a second time.”

  • Kendall stepping down as writer

Now, he is also announcing his retirement as The Cynthiana Democrat sports correspondent. Kendall has agreed to continue until the position is filled.
