  • Breds take bite from Bulldogs,...

    Last Friday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Covington to take on new district foes, the Holmes Bulldogs.

    With both teams already earning a home playoff game, this contest would determine the  No. 1 seed in the upcoming postseason. Holmes prevailed, handing Harrison County a 23-7 defeat.

  • I’m never too busy to...

    My weekend was full of wedding events, but I’m never too busy to think about sports. 

    The football Breds host a first round playoff game Friday night and I encourage all of you to go and support them. My football officiating crew will be calling a game somewhere other than here or I would go myself. The young people and the coaching staff deserve your support. 

  • Breds ground Flyers bringing...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds traveled to Franklin County Friday night to take on former Coach Aaron Stepp and the Flyers.

    The Breds were fresh off back-to-back district wins, while the Flyers had dropped two straight and were eliminated from post-season play.

    As the game started, Franklin County looked to be taking out the frustrations of a one-win season on the Breds as they methodically marched down the field on an 11-play, 70-yard drive resulting in a 10-yard touchdown run by Ryan Timmons.

  • Sports writer reacquaints with...

    Each week I plan to express some opinion on a subject or two that matter to me that I hope the reader will find interesting.  Since it has been years since I wrote for the paper and the audience may have changed, let me reacquaint you with me. 

    I grew up in Tell City, Ind., a small Swiss German community. Tell City is home to some familiar names to University Of Kentucky fans. One of Rupp’s Runts, Tommy Kron, was from Tell City, as is Steve Lochmueller, who later played for Joe B. Hall. 

  • Harrison County hosts...

    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. Our athletes had their fastest or nearly their fastest times of the season. I was pleased with the way we ran and competed.”

    The varsity boys had their best performance of the year placing fourth in the overall team standings in a very strong field. Jacob Marsh medaled placing 19th in 18:52.

    The Harrison County freshman team will host Grant County at Ingles Stadium Thursday night beginning at 6 p.m. The young Harrison County squad has a similar record to the JV and hopes to improve when they host the freshman Braves.

  • 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. The Camels scored the last six points to end the Fillies season. 

  • 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.
