  • Soccer Breds finish second in...

    The Tuesday night defeat of Holy Cross in shootout fashion was not enough to carry the Harrison County Thorobreds to the championship of their own Thorobred Classic as Bishop Brossart ran rough shod over the field for three wins and the trophy.  
    Thursday night was the face off between the two top teams in the Classic, the Breds and the Mustangs. The Mustangs scored first as the Breds, playing without Logan Wiley who received a red card on Tuesday and was out for this and the Bourbon County match, were working on finding the right combination.  

  • Thorobred golfers split 2...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds golfers lost a close match at Pendleton County last Wednesday before taking a match at Paris Monday night.
    The Pendleton County team is highly thought of in the region and Harrison County battled them tooth and nail before losing by eight strokes, 183 to 175.  
    Will Hicks lead the Thorobreds with 44 in the match played at the Pendleton County Country Club.  

  • One poor decision leads to a...

    I do not like to dwell on the negative so this week I am writing about a great decision that was made by the Cynthiana/Harrison County Parks and Recreation Board.  
    The decision to hire Darrell Baxter as the new director followed a mistake made in hiring someone that “is not from here.”  
    I am not always for hiring from within the county because for some jobs there may not be the best candidate here and being from here is not as important for some jobs as it is for the director of the Parks and Recreation.  

  • Cross country opens with...

    “I like what I see, said Coach Danny Simpson after the Harrison County cross country scrimmage at Woodford County. “Our athletes are working hard and working together to continue to improve.”  
    Simpson’s remarks came after both the Fillies and Thorobreds finished third in the multi-team scrimmage at Woodford County.  

  • Fillies win Glacier Invitational

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team ran its record to 8-1 for the season defeating Nicholas County on Thursday, winning five matches in sweeping the Glacier Invitational, losing to Bryan Station on Monday and defeating Pendleton County on Tuesday.
    The Nicholas County match was a three set win for the Fillies, 25-8, 25-13 and 25-10, as the Lady Jackets could not handle the ball for the most part through out the match.

    Local runners dominate
    Rod Run 5K
    The top three runners in both the women’s and men’s divisions were all Harrison County residents in the Rod Run 5K that was held on Saturday.  The race, with all proceeds going to the Refuge for Women, had 121 participants who ran from Bullard to Southern States and back. Kathy Brown of Cedar Ridge Health Campus was the race director and from all accounts did a wonderful job in her first year.
    There were 14 divisions for both female and male participants so there were a lot of winners.  

  • Soccer Breds clinch Holy Cross...

    The Thorobreds Classic Soccer Tournament had something for everyone Tuesday night unless one might be faint of heart.  

    There were more cards handed out than a night on the Dixie Queen, thunder (no lightning) which means delays and in the midst of all this some pretty good soccer for early season play.
