    Fresh from the UCA National Cheerleading contest in Orlando, Fla., where they finished fifth in the nation, the Harrison County cheerleaders finished sixth in the KAPOS competition Saturday in Bowling Green.

    See RECORDS page ---The winds still blow from the north and many days produce cold temperatures and leaden skies, but now is the time to catch big muskellunge in the tailwaters below Cave Run, Buckhorn and Green River lakes.
    The smaller tailwaters give bank anglers and owners of small boats a chance at a trophy muskellunge.

  • Breds finish at home with 71-58...

    The last home game for the Harrison County Thorobreds Tuesday night was a great way to close out the season on the Hilltop.  
    A quick and athletic Frankfort Panthers squad provided the opposition and though the Breds never trailed, the Panthers never quit.  
    The Thorobreds hit their first four attempts from the field as they raced out to a 27-13 lead by the end of the first session.  
    Caleb Ford had 12 of his game-high 25 points in this opening period.  

  • Breds win Senior Night battle...

    Frankie Valli of Four Seasons fame sang a song in the late 60s or early 70s that had the lyric “Oh What a Night,” which describes the weekend for the Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    First the junior varsity beat Mason County with a come-from-behind overtime win, 46-42. Next, the varsity Breds went to two overtimes to beat Mason County, 53-51, for the first regular season win over the Royals in 16 years. Then on Saturday, the Thorobreds beat Paul Laurence Dunbar 62-61 in the Shoot for the Cure Classic at Nicholas County.  

  • Fillies win two straight heading...

    Senior Night for the Harrison County Fillies was a success as the three senior players went out with a win as the Fillies notched their ninth win of the season on Monday night.  
    This win was the second in a row and third of four games in February.  
    Scott High Lady Eagles were the opponent for the Valentine’s Day eve game and they put up a struggle for three quarters before a flurry of points in the fourth quarter gave the Fillies the 57-45 win.  
    The three-point shot was the downfall and the savior for the Fillies Monday.  

  • Harrison Co. cheerleaders soar...

    It was 2001 that the Harrison County cheerleaders last reached the final round of the UCA National Cheerleading competition in Orlando, Fla.  
    Never had the cheerleaders finished as high as they did last weekend though as they worked their way to fifth in the nation in the small squad division.  
    Coach Jessica Reynolds was ecstatic with the girls’ performance.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds freshman team finished the season with a sparkling 16-5 record as they defeated Bishop Brossart and then lost to Mason County in the regional tournament.

  • Shirley wins wrestling region...

    Senior Anthony Shirley led the way as the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestlers finished only 14 points away from third place in the 7th Region wrestling tournament at Western Hills Saturday.
