  • Wrestlers finish high at Tates...

    Harrison County’s wrestlers led by junior Brandon Barnett’s first place finish took seventh of 21 teams at the Tates Creek Invitational Saturday.  Sophomore Anthony Shirley and senior Chris Brunker each took a second place medal to add to the Breds tally.

    The match featured some of the better teams in the area with both complete units and individuals who will be top competitors for state honors. 

  • Lady Bears cool Fillies on the...

    Harrison County’s defense held Bracken to 21 points for the first three periods Wednesday night but the Lady Polar Bears scored 18 in the final period to pull out a 39-36 victory.   

    The game, which was played Jan. 6, was a free throw shooting contest as Bracken County went to the line 36 times hitting on 22. 

  • Thorobreds hammered at Clark, 86...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds faced the highly rated George Rogers Clark Cardinals Tuesday night in Winchester and were given a sound beating, 86-29. 

    The Cardinals came into the game sporting a 13-4 record, having played a tough schedule which included the King of the Bluegrass in Louisville.  There was no doubt that they had earned the lofty ranking as they pulled away from the start in this outing.

    Clark scored first on a basket by Robbie Stenzel but Jared Martin connected on a three to give Harrison County its first and only lead of the evening. 

  • Barnett death is loss for...

    Harrison County lost a really good man last week when Kenton Barnett passed away. 

    I would say when a person looks in the dictionary under gentle giant you might see his picture.   

    Since I am not a native, as most know, I only knew Kenton for a short time, but I never met a better man. I put him right there with John Swinford as people who are class gentlemen.

  • Thorobreds tame the Panthers 86-...

    After a bit of a slow start, the Harrison County Thorobreds turned up the defense and ran off with a 30-point win at Augusta. 

    The 8-5 Breds trailed for much of the first period before superior athletic ability allowed them to run off seven straight to end the period and take an 18-11. 

    Malcolm Thomas scored the final points in this period with a three, a lay in and a put back to give his team the lead.

  • Fillies fall to Madison Central

    The best team in the 11th Region may be a title that can be disputed, but a really good, deep, talented team cannot be when one is talking about Madison Central. 

    The Harrison County Fillies found out all about that Saturday as they traveled to Richmond and battled the Lady Indians. 

    The first quarter’s tempo was to the liking of the Fillies as they were able to scrap and battle and only trail by five at the first stop.

  • The dish on NFL playoffs, UK...

    It’s official!! The Jets were given the playoff berth. The Ravens, Green Bay and Philadelphia earned the wild cards and the Jets were given theirs.   I hope that the Bengals and Colts lose the first game they play. 

    Bobby Feeback was the guest on Let’s Talk Sports Saturday morning on WCYN. Between the calls and other interruptions, he was able to give a good account of what goes on with a student athletic trainer.  

    While the job has many exciting moments, it is a demanding and time consuming venture.
