  • Breds drop dual to Bourbon,...

    In something of an upset, Harrison County was nipped by visiting Bourbon County last Wednesday at Southside Elementary, 34-33.

    Harrison County coach Russ Riegel shouldered much of the blame for the Breds close loss to the Colonels.

    “No question, I played it too close to the vest and probably didn’t evaluate Bourbon County’s talent very well,” explained Riegel. “I would say that evaluating their talent and guessing wrong probably caused the loss to Bourbon County.”

  • HCHS Cheerleaders win 10th...

    Congratulations to the  Harrison County High School cheerleaders for an outstanding performance on Saturday Jan. 10, at Mason County High School. Harrison County won the Super Large Cheerleading Division at the KAPOS 10th Region Cheer Competition. 

    According to the Kapos web-site, “They (Harrison County) had outstanding execution and spirit throughout their two and one half minute routine.”

    Harrison County will now advance to the KAPOS State At-Large Championships to be held in Bowling Green on Feb. 14.

  • Saints beat Fillies

    After going 3-1 in Bourbon County’s Kentucky Bank Holiday Tournament to wrap-up the 2008 portion of this season’s schedule, the Harrison County Fillies have found the sledding tough through two games in 2009.

    On Monday night, Harrison County traveled to Maysville and was defeated by a very good St. Patrick squad, 59-46.

    Harrison County fell behind early and could never quite catch up with the Saints.

  • Cards fly past Breds, 75-52

    The visiting Clark County Cardinals blew open a close game in the third quarter and cruised past the Harrison County Thorobreds on Tuesday night, 75-52.

    Harrison County, currently ranked seventh in the 10th Region, jumped on the region’s top-ranked team in the first three minutes of the game, but struggled to stay within striking distance for the rest of the first half.

    The Thorobreds led 9-3 in the early going, but needed a Ryan Puckett three-pointer inside the last minute of the first period to trail 15-14 at the quarter break.

  • Second half dooms Fillies in...

    Down 14-4 at one point in the first quarter, Harrison County fought back and led host Tates Creek at halftime on Monday night, 26-25. To start the second half, the Fillies were awarded two free throws after it was discovered that a Tates Creek player was not in the official score book.

    Charley Hatfield made one of those charity tosses to give Harrison County a 27-25 lead.

  • Breds roll as Reitz notches...

    Don’t look now, but the Harrison County Thorobreds may be raising a few eyebrows within the 10th Region.

    On Tuesday night, the Breds returned to the Hilltop for their second home game of the season and didn’t disappoint the crowd with an 82-59 rout of visiting Augusta.

    Balanced scoring, solid outside shooting and improved rebounding by the home team proved to be too much for the Panthers to handle. It was the second time within a two-week period that Harrison County has upended Augusta.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds were scheduled to battle the host Bracken County Polar Bears Tuesday afternoon to round out the First National Bank Holiday Classic.

    Prior to the Bracken County match-up, the Thorobreds had claimed one victory in three outings in the classic.

    On Friday, Dec. 26, the Breds fell short against Lewis County, 72-68.

    The Thorobreds had five players in double figures, but the outcome still left HCHS lagging behind.

  • Fillies claim fifth place in...

    The Harrison County Fillies ended the 2008 portion of their schedule on a high note with a fifth place finish in the Kentucky Bank Holiday Classic at Bourbon County.

    The Fillies won three out of four games in a field of 16 teams to claim their No. 5 spot.

    Senior Charley Hatfield was named to the Classic’s all-tournament team having led scoring for the Fillies.

    “I thought the kids played well,” said Coach Jason Crisp.

  • Harrison wrestlers take two of...

    The Christmas break brought Harrison County wrestlers to the mats in the Region 7 Super Duals in Lexington Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 22 and 23, but couldn’t give the Breds a state duals berth.

    Harrison County won two of its five matches during the two-day event.

    On Monday, Harrison County opened against Woodford, which it has done at least three consecutive years.

    Woodford claimed the first match 52 to Harrison’s 21.

    HCHS Coach Russ Riegel said there were some bright spots in the match.
