  • Feeback trains the Wildcats

    When he was playing football for the Harrison County Thorobreds, Bobby Feeback was a kicker and punter.  Never in his wildest dreams did he think that in one short year he would be in Jordan Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala., with the Kentucky Wildcats. But there he was, one of 12 student trainers who keep the football Cats in tip top shape, taped, wrapped, stretched and ready to go.

  • Breds football coach needs to...

    I really like Harrison County’s new football coach, Mark Carroll. He seems like a hard working, sincere young person, who really has the players’ best interests at heart.  He does have an extremely difficult job to do and some problems that are long in need of fixing to address. He also has some new issues that have been caused by the building of the new stadium and the growing pains associated with that venture.

  • Youth Basketball on the Hilltop...

    Basketball teams from the third grade to the eighth grade will invade the hilltop this weekend for the Hoopin at the Hilltop Youth Basketball Tournament. The tourney begins at 9:15 Saturday morning on three courts and expands to four courts at 12:30 when Harrison County’s third grade team meets Pendleton County at Southside gym. 

    Play will be at the high school and on two middle school floors in addition to the Southside gym. There are 10 games on the high school floor, 11 on each of the middle school floors and seven games at Southside, all on Saturday.

  • Cross country season ends at...

    Both of the Harrison County cross country squads saw the season come to an end Saturday as they competed in the regional at the Archives course in Frankfort.

    Although this course is considered to be one of the tougher ones in the state, nearly the entire team ran the best time on it Saturday, but still could not qualify for the state meet. 

    Harrison County competes in one of the most talented regions in the state in AA with many of the teams running outstanding times.

  • Colts strip Breds’...

    On Friday night the very first football playoff game in the new stadium took place between the Harrison County Thorobreds and the West Jessamine Colts. The Breds entered the game with a 5-5 record, while the Colts were 8-2, with losses only to Boyle County and Lexington Catholic.

    The sparse crowd was barely settled in before West Jessamine went on a seven-play, 63-yard drive resulting in a 23-yard touchdown run by Colt halfback Parker Ball. The Colt’s were on top 7-0 with barely over three minutes gone by.

  • Harrison Co. Fillies look to...

    Second year Head Coach Jason Crisp is counting heavily on his four seniors to lead the Fillies as they strive to improve on last year’s 10-20 season. 

    “They have to be the ones to show the younger players how to score, defend and rebound,” he remarked. 

    The four are led by veteran point guard Lorainne Dennie, who Crisp said needs to be the leader on and off the floor. 

    “She has to score more yet look for assists and cut down on turnovers,” said Crisp. 

  • Cornhole tournament planned for...

    The Harrison County High School Bowling team will host a cornhole tournament for Saturday, Nov. 21 at Eastside Elementary School. Sign-ups will begin at 10 a.m. with games beginning at 11. There will be a blind draw for partners. The cost will be $20 per team with a 50 percent payback. Snacks, hotdogs and drinks will be available.

    Proceeds to benefit the HCHS Bowling team.

    Garnett advances to NAIA championship

    Luke Garnett advanced to the NAIA Cross Country Championships in Vancouver, Wash., with a sixth place finish Saturday in Louisville.  Garnett ran in the Mid South Conference Meet at E.P. Sawyer Park Saturday and had a time of 27:18 in the 8000M race. 

  • Inflated salaries buy the pennant

    I love baseball.

    All kinds of baseball, from Little League to Major League and all in between. I find t-ball and coach pitch a little tedious, but when my grandsons are playing, I watch them. 

    What I don’t like is the way major league baseball is going right now. In fact, it has been going this way for a while. The Yankees have a payroll of $221 million. The next closest to them is Boston at $120 some million or close to that. 

  • HCHS cheerleaders qualify for...

    When your team finishes fourth of five, normally that doesn’t sound too good.  However, when the competition is made up of nationally ranked squads, it makes the result much more satisfying. 

    That was the situation for the Harrison County cheerleaders Saturday as they participated in the Bluegrass Regional in Lexington. 

    The competition, North Laurel, Bishop McCort and Louisville Male, are all highly rated and exceptional cheer squads.
