  • Wrestlers take four of five at...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team showed great improvement Saturday as they participated in the Simon Kenton Duals.  
    This always-tough meet saw the Breds take matches from Anderson County, Badin, Ohio, Male and Central of Louisville while losing to Top 10 team Henry Clay.  
    The Blue Devils feature eight seniors of the 14 wrestlers giving them quite an advantage over most competitors.  

  • A perfect situation (in my mind)

    I am writing this on my 65th birthday so keep in mind that when one gets older he could forget things, add to things and outright dream them up.  
    If you are one of the elderly, you may or may not recognize these problems but you might ask some who are around you.  Patti’s birthday is tomorrow but she is not even close to my age as she was a child bride.
    The perfect situation that I would like to address is the lack of intramural basketball played in the Harrison County Middle School.  

  • Breds lose overtime battle with...

    The Republic Bank Classic did not do much for Harrison County’s won-loss record as the Thorobreds lost three of the four games they played in the event.  
    However, the Breds learned a lot about who they are and how far they can go as the Harrison County boys played almost well enough to win all four games.  
    They opened with the five-point loss to the host and eventual winner Lexington Catholic before defeating nine-game winner Clinton County.

  • Wrestlers win Rumble, finish...

    Harrison County’s wrestlers won the eight-team Rumble on the Hilltop last Monday at the Harrison County Middle School edging Bourbon County and Campbell County.
    The Thorobreds scored 57 points to the Colonels’ 51 and the Camels’ 50 in a make up of the tournament originally schedule for Dec. 7.  
    The Thorobreds won only three of the 13 classes and took second in four. The 170-lb. Mason Fryman, 182-lb. Clay Arthur, and 220-lb. Kellon Williams won their weight classes.

  • Fillies beat Rowan County, lose...

    The Harrison County Fillies were a little slow out of the gate but regrouped and won a hard-fought nail biter Friday over Rowan County, 55-52, in their first game in the Bourbon County Holiday Classic.  
    In a poorly played first half, the lethargic Fillies found themselves trailing 23-13 when sophomore Madison Philpot scored six of eight Fillies’ points to close the gap to two points.

  • Fillies drop 2 more at Republic...

    On Sunday and Monday at the Republic Bank Classic, the Harrison County Fillies continued to struggle with their ball handling, especially against the Mason County Lady Royals on Sunday.
    After a 29-turnover performance against a very talented Simon Kenton team on Saturday, the Fillies came back to commit 28 versus the Lady Royals.
    The turnovers resulted in 27 points for the Mason County squad en route to their 64 to 43 defeat of the Fillies.
