  • Biography of Jock Sutherland out...

    Stuart Warner, a professor at Case Western Reserve University, has written a biography of Charles, “Jock” Sutherland entitled “Jock: A Coach’s Story,” which will be published by Wind Publications this month.  Warner also is a very accomplished writing coach, as he has written or edited three Pulitzer Prize- winning entries and edited three other Pulitzer finalists.

    This book is about the legendary Kentucky sports figure Jock Sutherland, who was the basketball coach at Harrison County for seven years.

  • Harrison County junior varsity...

    Led by eighth grader Jordan Doram’s 17-point, 10-rebound game, the Harrison County Fillies junior varsity defeated Deming to win the 38th District tournament Sunday. 

    Deming defeated Pendleton County to earn a spot in the finals, but the Fillies outscored them 43-37. Ashley Coppage added 12 points and Tiffany Snider had eight points and seven rebounds to also lead the way to victory. 

    Coach Christine Garnett said the whole team played very well in order to earn the victory.

  • District pairings set for...

    Tuesday, Feb. 23, will be the first night of action for both the Fillies and the Thorobreds in the 38th District tournament.  The tourney begins with Deming and Pendleton County facing off on Monday, Feb. 22. The girls’ game is at 6:30 p.m. and the boys’ game is at 8:15 p.m. Game times are the same for Tuesday when Harrison County and Nicholas County face each other in girls and boys action.

  • Thorobreds defeat St. Pat on...

    Harrison County’s four seniors had a memorable Senior Night as they led the Thorobreds to a victory Saturday night over the St. Patrick Saints 69-54. 

    Marcus Custard, Jared Martin, Malcolm Thomas and Zack Turner each started in the next to last home game of the year.

  • A super Super Bowl

    e from Indiana doesn’t make them a Colts fan anymore than being a cow makes you give milk. 

    It might be likely, but not necessarily a must. That is the way it is with me and the Colts. I was for the Colts, but New Orleans winning didn’t really bother me. If it had been the Steelers, now that would have been a horse of another color. In fact, one good thing about New Orleans winning was that a former Indiana Hoosier player made the big interception and scored the back-breaking points.

  • Cheerleading competition is...

    The last time I attended a cheerleader competition the boys’ state tournament was still being played in Louisville.  I think it was the year that Jeff Lamp and Lee Raker played for Ballard, which would have been 1977. They both went on to play for the University of Virginia, but that is another story. 

    Anyway, it has been a long time and that was the only competition that I have been to ever.     

    So, the competition Sunday on the Hilltop was something new for me and I found it quite interesting.

  • Grapplers shut down Dunbar on...

    In what Coach Riegel thought may have been the best match of the year, the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team defeated Paul Lawrence Dunbar 44-26 Wednesday night. 

    This was Senior Night for wrestlers Chris Brunker, Shaun Lenz, Josh Moss and Brett Williams and it was a real team effort.

    The match started with the heavyweights and Corey Bailey started the evening out right with a very smart match and a 2-0 overtime win.

  • Fillies drop home game to Clark...

    The Fillies never lead Monday night as Clark County took advantage of 25 Harrison County turnovers to win 49-42.

    The game was only tied at 2-2 as the Cardinals jumped out to a 15-4 lead near the end of the first period. Harrison County scored the last six points of the quarter to cut the lead to five at 15-10.

    The second period saw Clark County lead by as many as 13 points before the Fillies again cut it to nine at the half, 27-18.  Neither team really played inspired ball as they both shot poorly and made multiple turnovers.

  • Fillies, Thorobreds sweep...

    Homecoming 2010 was a double header victory for the Harrison County basketball programs. 

    Homecoming Queen Elizabeth Ford and King Christian Chasteen watched as first the Fillies and then the Thorobreds pulled out hard-fought victories over Pendleton County Friday night on the Hilltop.

    The Fillies jumped out to a quick 6-2 lead only to see the Lady Wildcats come back with a balanced attack to take the lead at 8-11 by the half way point of the first period. The score seesawed back and forth with the Fillies holding a one point margin at the first stop 16-15.
