  • 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.

  • Ramblings from Ray

    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

    At the end of the 2009 school year, Lee Kendall announced his retirement as a classroom teacher for Harrison County High School. He was, however, continuing his athletic director duties. Now, he is also announcing his retirement as The Cynthiana Democrat sports correspondent. Kendall has agreed to continue until the position is filled.

  • Sanders struggles on back nine

    Junior golfer Eric Sanders was in good shape to make the cut at the Leachman Buick/Pontiac/GMC/KHSAA Boys’ State Golf Championships on Tuesday at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    He was seven over par on the day with two holes to play, but finished with a triple bogey and double bogey for an 18-hole score of 84.

    “That probably won’t make the cut, but we’ll stay down here for another day, just to make sure,” said HCHS golf coach Jason Crisp.

  • Post-season tournaments set for...

    Three Harrison County fall sports teams will play their initial post-season tournaments next week, all on the road.

    The Fillies volleyball team will go into the 38th District Volleyball Tournament with the best overall record in the 10th Region, a 20-6 mark at press time. They played at home last night in a Senior Night match against Lexington Christian Academy and will host their week-delayed Fall Fling on Saturday.

  • Breds host Pendleton Saturday

    After an unscheduled week off, the Harrison County Thorobreds are back on the field this Saturday for their first district encounter of the season when they play host to Pendleton County.

    Last Friday, the Breds had their game with Bardstown cancelled as a district-wide flu epidemic forced school officials to dismiss from school on Thursday and Friday.

    The edict meant that all school activities were postponed as well.

  • Cynthiana Sin The’...

    Members of the Cynthiana Sin The’ Shaolin Karate Club have had a busy summer and fall. Grand Master Sin Kwang The’ from California visited the school and tested members for rank advancement.

  • Sanders, Whalen advance to State...

    In brutally windy conditions on Monday, two Harrison County High School golfers qualified as individuals for their respective state golf tournaments next week in Bowling Green.

    Junior Eric Sanders shot 76 at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Crittenden, and was one of three individual qualifiers from the Region 8 Tournament to the Leachmann Buick/Boys’ State Golf Championships that will be held at the Bowling Green Country Club next Tuesday and Wednesday.
