  • Breds and Fillies linksters...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds golf team got one round in and was washed out in the second round of the Franklin County Flyer Invitational on Monday and Tuesday this week.

    The 36-hole medal play event was to be played on Monday at Griffin Gate in Lexington and Tuesday at Juniper Hills in Frankfort.

    The Breds finished in the upper half of the 25 teams who competed after Monday’s round, but had the tournament washed out on Tuesday due to the torrential rains that hit the state.

  • Breds soccer to begin season...

    There’s no way to disguise the fact that the 2008 soccer year for the Harrison County Thorobreds was dismal.

    They finished the year with a 1-14 record. They were shutout nine times, including their last five regular season games and their district tournament loss to Montgomery County, 1-0. They began the season with seven straight losses, defeated Frankfort 1-0, then lost seven more games to wrap up the season. They scored only six goals all year, and never played a game when they scored more than once.

  • HCHS Volleyball team looks to...

    The 2009 edition of the Harrison County High School volleyball team lacks a proven setter, and that may be the only ingredient missing from a team that could advance deep into the coming post-season.

    “Our outside hitters and middle hitters are every bit as good as the best hitting teams we have had at Harrison County,” said Bill Faulkner, Fillies head coach since the inception of volleyball at HCHS. “Our only concern is how well we will be able to pass and set the ball… We lost some key players off last year’s team that we really relied on.”

  • Veteran Fillies anticipate 2009...

    It will be a hungry Harrison County Fillies soccer team that takes the field for the 2009 season.

    Coming off a 6-12-2 season in 2008, and a season ending 3-2 loss to Montgomery County in the 24th  District Tournament semi-finals, Coach Kim Jenkins thinks she has the senior leadership this year to turn that record around.

  • Dailey, Thomas to represent...

    Pitcher Logan Dailey and outfielder Malcolm Thomas are two of 18 underclassmen from across Kentucky that will represent the Commonwealth in a national baseball tournament that will be held in Plainfield, Ill., July 29-Aug. 1.

    Dailey, a junior-to-be in the 2009-10 school year, was the Harrison County Thorobreds top pitcher during the 2009 season, finishing the year with a record of 8-2 with an ERA of 1.30.

    He pitched a complete game shutout in the Breds 2-0 win over Louisville Trinity in the first round of the Forcht Bank/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament this spring.

  • 9-10s win district Little League...

    Twenty-one teams from seven different counties descended on River Road Park over the last two weeks to participate in the District 3 Little League Tournaments, hosted by the Cynthiana-Harrison County Recreation Department.
