  • Bowlers a mix of veterans and...

    The Harrison County Bowling Team hit the lanes in late October with a veteran girls’ team and a boys’ team full of youth. Coaches Kurt Burgan, Bonnie Parks and Johnny Curtis have several bowlers on both squads who have the potential to bowl 200-plus games on a regular basis, but some still lack the experience in competitive bowling.

    The girls are led by seniors Ashley Hatfield and Amanda Gaunce, who are both veterans of state tournament bowling. 

    According to Burgan, they are leaders of the team and are both very capable of bowling 200-plus games.

  • Cross country runners in two...

    The Harrison County Cross Country teams finished the season with two meets last week. In a meet at Berea College Thursday, Coach Danny Simpson’s squad ran in a comer’s event which had 10 teams pursuing the championship. 

    The Harrison boys finished sixth in one of the better performances of the year. Jacob Marsh led the way with a ninth place finish in a time of 19:51. Nathan Radford, David Roberts and Damon King also finished in the top 40 runners to help the Breds to the sixth place mark.

    Last Friday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Covington to take on new district foes, the Holmes Bulldogs.

  • I’m never too busy to...

    My weekend was full of wedding events, but I’m never too busy to think about sports. 

    The football Breds host a first round playoff game Friday night and I encourage all of you to go and support them. My football officiating crew will be calling a game somewhere other than here or I would go myself. The young people and the coaching staff deserve your support. 

  • Breds ground Flyers bringing...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Franklin County Friday night to take on former Coach Aaron Stepp and the Flyers.

    The Breds were fresh off back-to-back district wins, while the Flyers had dropped two straight and were eliminated from post-season play.

    As the game started, Franklin County looked to be taking out the frustrations of a one-win season on the Breds as they methodically marched down the field on an 11-play, 70-yard drive resulting in a 10-yard touchdown run by Ryan Timmons.

  • Sports writer reacquaints with...

    Each week I plan to express some opinion on a subject or two that matter to me that I hope the reader will find interesting.  Since it has been years since I wrote for the paper and the audience may have changed, let me reacquaint you with me. 

    I grew up in Tell City, Ind., a small Swiss German community. Tell City is home to some familiar names to University Of Kentucky fans. One of Rupp’s Runts, Tommy Kron, was from Tell City, as is Steve Lochmueller, who later played for Joe B. Hall.

    The Cynthiana Country Club was the site for the Harrison County High School Invitational Cross Country Meet on Oct. 22.  According to Coach Danny Simpson, “The grounds of the Country Club were ideal. Our athletes had their fastest or nearly their fastest times of the season. I was pleased with the way we ran and competed.”

    The varsity boys had their best performance of the year placing fourth in the overall team standings in a very strong field. Jacob Marsh medaled placing 19th in 18:52.
