  • Indoor track continues, coaches...

    Members of the Harrison County track team began the indoor season in earnest Saturday as they traveled to Mason County to compete in one of the several events held before the outdoor season begins later in the year.  
    There were 15 girls’ teams and 18 boys’ squads competing in the first Mason County meet.  
    Harrison County’s girls finished sixth with 29 points led by sophomore Haley Carr, who had two second place finishes.  Carr ran the 55M hurdles in 09:92 and the 800M run in 3:09.21.  

  • Sports beat

    Middle school grapplers have 4 state
    competitors, 3 regional champs
    The Middle School Region held at Paul Blazer High School last Saturday became a stepping stone to the state for four of the Harrison County Middle School wrestlers. Taylor Bourassa, Colin Coy and Michael Mattox won region championships and Nathan Lopez finished third as each grappler qualified for the state championship held Feb. 4 in Mt. Sterling.  

  • Conference Champs
  • Schroder
  • Fillies split two games on the...

    The Harrison County Fillies, playing without two starters, defeated East Jessamine on Thursday and lost to Pendleton County on Friday, both on the Hilltop court.
    Sophomore center, leading scorer and rebounder Jordan Doram and senior guard Emalee Little missed both games with ankle injuries.   This left Coach Kim Furnish with a very youthful lineup to combat both the Lady Jaguars and the Lady Cats in the back-to-back games.

  • Yellowjackets sting Breds...

    A tough, aggressive, swarming bunch of Woodford County Yellowjackets ran over the Harrison County Thorobreds Tuesday night taking a 55-47 victory.  
    The first half was all Woodford County as they moved the ball on offense getting good shots and hitting them and played hard-nosed defense limiting Harrison County.  

  • Injuries doom Fillies, Lady...

    The long bus trip north began without senior guard Emalee Little so the Fillies knew they were going to be shorthanded. Little, who was injured in the Montgomery County game, was in therapy Tuesday as the bus pulled away pointing toward Conner.  But Harrison County was compensating for the absence at guard trailing by only one at 14-13 at the end of the first period facing the powerhouse Lady Cougars (17-4).  

  • Cheerleaders win region in small...

    The first time that Harrison County’s cheer team has been able to have two squads in the Regional KAPOS Competition was this past Sunday at Nicholas County.  
    The team divided into two squads, the small with 12 cheerleaders and the medium with 15. Four of the cheerleaders, two from each squad were named all region as they led their squads to outstanding performances.
    The small squad was named 10th Region Champions in their division.  

  • Eighth grade Colts advance to...

    The Harrison County Colts eighth grade team wrapped up an undefeated regular conference season Thursday night while the seventh grade team came up one game short.
    It took a tie breaker to determine the second place team that advanced to the tournament in the southern seventh grade division and Powell County’s team was the winner due to a victory over Bourbon County who was the division winner.  
    The seventh grade Colts put themselves in position to advance with a win over Bourbon Thursday night by hammering Conkwright on Wednesday 23-7.  

  • Great respect for Joe Paterno

    I saw a note on Facebook today that made me think about the legacy of Joe Paterno. Paterno, for anyone who has maybe been out of the country (world) in the past few months, was the football coach at Penn State since the ball was leather and not a pig’s bladder.  
    Two months ago, Paterno was removed as coach by the State College Pennsylvania institution people in charge because of what was perceived as inaction in light of an ugly sex abuse charge against one of his former assistants.
