  • Harrison County archers continue...

    Two years ago the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) added an invitation-only tournament to successful archers across North America. It is now the largest archery tournament in the world; attracting almost 5,000 students from across the United States and Canada.

    Harrison County is now turning some heads as they placed 8th in the middle school division out of 65 invited teams. Their elementary division (only 6th grade) placed 13th out of 58 teams. High school archers placed 37th out 84 teams. 

  • American Red Cross swimming/...

    Screening and registration for classes will be held Wednesday, May 27 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. at the Cynthiana Country Club pool. Bring a bathing suit and towel. Fees for each class will be $25 payable at registration. If after registering for a class, a student is unable to participate in that class the fee will be refunded.

  • Post-season to begin for HCHS...

    The Harrison County Breds and Fillies track teams will compete Saturday in the Class AA, Region 4 Track Meet at Paul L. Dunbar High School in Lexington. The meet is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. and is expected to last through mid-afternoon.

  • The streak ends, Fillies fall to...

    The fourth time was the charm for the Bourbon County Colonels on Tuesday night as they finally got over the hump and defeated visiting Harrison County, 8-4.

    The loss for the Fillies ends an impressive 21-game winning streak and dropped their record on the year to 27-4.

    Earlier in the year, Harrison County defeated Bourbon County three times, twice by close scores and once in a blow out.

  • Tracksters 2nd at Scott Co.

    The Harrison County track teams had only one meet last week. They ran at Scott County on Tuesday, but the Fleming County Invitational was rained out on Friday.

    Both the Breds and Fillies  placed second out of 11 teams at the Scott County All Comers. The boys (132 pts.) finished second to Scott County (199.5), but well ahead of third place Woodford County’s 69 points.

  • Breds edge Camels in extras

    The Harrison County Thorobreds earned what could be the kind of win that just may catapult them into another long post-season run on Tuesday night in Northern Kentucky.

    With less than one week until district tournament play begins, Harrison County scored twice in the top of the eighth inning and knocked off home-standing Campbell County, 7-5. It was the Breds second win in a row, in a string of difficult regular-season ending games.

  • Ducks Unlimited sportsmans night...

    The South Licking Ducks Unlimited will have a sportsmans night out on Saturday, May 16 at the Cynthiana Country Club. Doors open at 6 p.m., dinner served at 7 p.m. Single, $25; Greenwing (under 18), $15.

    Wear a hunter orange or camo shirt and get a chance to win a gun. For tickets call 234-2969 or 859-588-9628.

  • Tracksters prepping for regionals

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies track teams are on the last lap of the regular season with the regional track meet two weeks away.

    Both the Breds and Fillies competed at Dunbar High School in Lexington on Saturday in the Bearcat/Bulldog Invitational, with that regional meet as a primary impetus.

  • Fillies continue winning ways

    The Harrison County Fillies softball team won its fourth consecutive regular season tournament last weekend and look to maintain its momentum heading into post-season play in two weeks.

    Harrison County has an overall record of 22-3 and has won 16 games in a row. They have won 21 of its last 22 since starting the year with a 1-2 record after the first week of the season.

    The Fillies went 3-0 and won their own McDonald’s Derby Classic Tournament over the weekend.

  • Slumping Breds fall to Creekers

    Harrison County baseball coach Mac Whitaker is not a happy man.

    With just more than a week and a half left in the regular season, his Thorobreds have still not shown the consistency, especially at the plate, that his previous championship teams have had.

    Tuesday night on the Hilltop, his Thorobreds were soundly defeated by visiting Tates Creek, 9-1, as their season record slipped to 15-7.
