Today's Sports

  • Class sports are a huge mistake

    I saw where a couple of coaches were asking the Kentucky High School Athletic Association to look into having class baseball and other sports like they do football. 

    This would, of course, not include basketball which already has a class A tournament. Besides, the basketball tournament is the big cash cow that operates the rest of the tournaments that do not pay their own way. 

  • Royals trump Breds Friday night

    The Harrison County Thorobreds hosted one of the favorites to win the 10th Region Friday night and Mason County showed one and all why they are rated so highly.  

    In a game where Harrison County never led, Mason County pulled away to an easy 71-51 victory. Easy, not to say the Thorobreds didn’t try hard, but like the Clark County game, they never could get shots to fall early and just kept falling further behind. 

  • Wrestling region this weekend at...

    The large number of schools participating has caused the wrestling region to be changed to a Friday night and Saturday format. Friday night starts at 6 p.m.; Saturday at 10 a.m. 

    Harrison County will have four wrestlers in the top four seeds in their weight classes along with 11 others who will compete in hopes of grabbing some points for the Thorobreds.

  • Harrison County freshmen take...

    The Harrison County boys’ freshman basketball team defeated both Pendleton and Nicholas counties to win the 38th District Championship last week.

    The games were played in Nicholas County last Thursday. The first game saw the young Thorobreds pull out to a 12-point lead in the first period and continue to add to it as the game progressed. The Breds, once again, used their superior bench to keep fresh players in the game to out man the freshman Wildcats.  

  • 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.
