  • Thorobreds win first game with...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds won their first game of the season Friday night and by doing so qualified for the Class 4A playoffs in District 7.  
    The Thorobreds traveled north to Pendleton County Friday and ran over the Pendleton County Wildcats 28-0 in an impressive second-half performance.
    Both teams opened up slowly on offense as the Wildcats took the opening kick off and were three plays and out and the Breds returned the favor on their first possession.  

  • Recreation: Do we all not...

    While running the risk of repeating some of Louis Kendall’s letter to the editor of last week, I want to put my two cents worth into the recreation or lack of recreation in Harrison County.
    First, I will contend that we cannot offer too much.  
    Look at the success of the yoga and Zumba classes that are going on in different parts of town plus the number of ladies who go to Curves for exercise.  

  • Harrison County Invitational...

    If Coach Danny Simpson had known that several of his runners were going to fall ill last week, he wouldn’t have set such a rigorous schedule.  
    “Two meets in three days is too much, especially with sick runners,” said the coach. “This was not smart scheduling on my part.”
    The Harrison County Invitational was held at the Cynthiana Country Club on Thursday with five girls’ teams, four boys’ teams and three middle school squads participating.

    Colts football season ends with
    heart breaker at Georgetown Middle
    Football, like life, does not allow one to pick the times that you are not up to your best performance. In fact, most times when you are not at your best is the time when you most need to be. That was the case for the Harrison County eighth grade Colts Thursday when they traveled for the semi final rounds of the playoffs to Georgetown Middle.  


    By Jamie Baker-Nantz
    A third and fourth grade Grant County Youth Football team will not be finishing its season or playing in this year’s playoffs.
    The team, the Blue Mighty Pros, have been suspended from the league for the remainder of the season, causing a firestorm of emotions from parents, boosters and league officials.
    The controversy started last fall when Craig Ruber, coach of the Blue Mighty Pros, gave some of his players a Walton-Verona jersey and told them to urinate on it.

  • HCMS teams rout Powell County

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts closed out the regular season Thursday night with a double header win over Powell County.  
    First, the seventh grade squad built a 20-6 lead in the third quarter and then held off the seventh grade Pirates for a 28-18 win. Max Ogden scored three times for Harrison County and Brice Henderson once as the Colts made good use of the line’s blocking as they ran the ball successfully.

    clinic on Saturdays beginning Oct. 20
    The Harrison County High School varsity basketball Fillies are hosting a clinic for girls K-5 on Saturday mornings beginning Oct. 20. The Saturday morning clinics will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. for four Saturdays through Nov. 10.

  • Baseball continues without Reds...

    I would have enjoyed the National League Championship Series more if the Reds would have been playing the Cardinals.  
    I really believe that they are the two best teams in the National League despite the Giants winning the series with the Reds.  
    Injuries are part of every sport and sometimes they come at the worst time like the injury to Johnny Cueto, but I still believe the Reds had the better lineup even without him.  

  • Harrison County wrestling faces...

    Coach Luke Tucker begins his second year as head varsity coach with a young but veteran group of young men returning to the wrestling mat.  
    Gone from last year are four senior wrestlers who scored many points in their years at Harrison County, each of whom will be hard to replace.
