    The Cynthiana Country Club was the site for the Harrison County High School Invitational Cross Country Meet on Oct. 22.  According to Coach Danny Simpson, “The grounds of the Country Club were ideal.

  • Soccer girls fall to Bourbon in...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team had a throw in bounce the wrong way allowing Bourbon County to have a numbers advantage to score the only goal in the regional final Thursday at Bourbon County.   

    In a game where the Fillies executed the game plan almost flawlessly, the errant bounce spelled defeat. Coach Kim Jenkins remarked how well the Fillies played together as a team and deserved a better fate than they received. 

  • Volleyball finishes season 30-9

    llies volleyball team ran into a top 25 Campbell County Camel squad Wednesday night and was defeated 25-8 and 25-20.  According to Coach Bill Faulkner the girls started out a little timid against the host team of the region, but rallied in the second game leading up until 20-19.

  • Invitational Cross Country meet...

    The annual Harrison County Invitational Cross Country Meet will be held this afternoon at the Cynthiana Country Club.

    According to Harrison County coach Danny Simpson, the CCC venue is a fan favorite.

    “Spectators and teams really like coming to this meet,” said Simpson. “It is a challenging course for the runners and it is fan friendly as spectators can see almost the entire race and not have to move around a whole lot.”

  • Breds ice historic come-from-...

    Last Friday night, the Bourbon County Colonels invaded the Hilltop for an all-important district game against the Thorobreds. The Colonels entered the game with a record of 4-3 overall and 1-1 in the district while the Breds were 3-4 and 1-0 in district play.

    On top of all this, it’s Bourbon County. For as long as these two schools have existed, it has been THE rivalry game that you throw out all the records and just go “at it.”

    Regardless of the sport, it’s like the Cowboys vs. Redskins, Yankee’s vs. Red Sox, UK vs. Louisville.

  • Ramblings from Ray

    This past Friday’s Harrison/Bourbon clash on the Hilltop was arguably one of the most exciting high school football games I’ve seen. Huge momentum swings, dramatic plays, a last second field goal. You name it, this game had it. It reminds me of why high school sports are so fun. Unlike the sros and sometimes college, high school sports are so unpredictable and for $5, it’s pretty cheap entertainment.

    As mentioned in this week’s story, this was the largest comeback in Harrison County football history for victory as they trailed 21-0.

  • Fillies take on Lady Colonels in...

    A Kassy Barnett goal barely eight minutes into the game stood up as Harrison County got past St. Patrick, 1-0, in the first round of the four-team Girl’s 12th Regional Soccer Tournament at Stonerside Field in Paris on Tuesday night.

    In the first game on Tuesday night, Bourbon County had an easy time with Grant County, blitzing the 23rd District runner-up, 7-1.

  • 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.
