    Nick Slucher leads the charge in 2013 Born to Run
    When 331 runners start a race it has to be like a Calvary charge. That was how many runners there were in the 2013 Born to Run, sponsored by the Cynthiana-Harrison County Chamber of Commerce.  

  • Cross country teams run in Grant...

    The Harrison County varsity, middle school and sixth grade and under cross country teams ran at Sherman Elementary School course Saturday in the Grant County Invitational.  
    One of the reasons that Coach Danny Simpson decided for his team to run in this event is the regional meet will be held there in November.  The meet was another meet filled with top competition which made for tough sledding for the Harrison County runners.
    The Thorobreds had the best performance of the Harrison County squads.  

  • Alumni charity game and some...

    Alumnus in the Webster dictionary is described as graduate of a college or university.  
    The UK Alumni Charity Game played on Monday night was kind of misbilled was it not?  
    Before you get all enraged because I said something about the glorious Wildcats, the charity part of the night was tremendous and Coach Calipari and the players who took their time to come and play are to be commended for doing so when they could have stayed home and been just as popular as they were before.   

  • Fillies lose in last minute to...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team lost a tough one Monday night on the Hilltop as Bourbon County kicked the ball over the outstretched arms of the Harrison County goal keeper, Chelsea Ingram, with 1:04 left in the match for a 3-2 win.  
    The Lady Colonels had scored in the first half with only one minute and 40 seconds gone on a penalty kick when it was ruled that the Fillies had a hand ball in the box.  
    Eight minutes later, Bourbon County was the recipient of another special call this time resulting in a direct kick and a score.  

  • Golfers have busy week with 2...

    The Harrison County Fillies golf team had one match last week defeating Bourbon County on Wednesday at Houston Oaks Golf Course in Paris.  
    The Fillies continued their improved play as they were 11 strokes better than the Lady Colonels 230-241.  
    Sarah Holland again led the Harrison County girls as she shot a 46 for the nine-hole match. Morgan Nelly was next with 58 followed by Kenzie Jones who had a 62 and Sarah Durbin who shot 64.  

  • Harrison County shuts out Rowan...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team improved its season record to 5-2 Tuesday night with a 4-0 shut out of Rowan County in the Athletic Complex.  
    During this game Coach Nick Hill saw a lot of bright spots and some good play from some new faces.  
    The varsity game was first Tuesday night due to the Vikings limited roster and the Harrison County 11 started a little slowly.  

  • Breds bowled over by Indians’...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds suffered their first loss Friday night as the Montgomery County Indians ran over the Breds for the 28-19 win.  
    The victory was the first for Montgomery County as they improved to 1-2 in the young season while the Breds dropped to 2-1.
    Harrison County took the opening kickoff and ran nine plays before they gave the ball up on a Taylor Bolin punt down to the Montgomery County 12-yard line.  

  • Breds roll up 453 total yards in...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds made their season record 2-0 for the first time since 2007 as they outscored Gallatin County 34-24 Sunday in the Commonwealth Counseling Bowl at Grant County.  
    The Breds won their first-ever Sunday game with a balanced attack that put 453 total yards on the board 216 rushing and 237 through the air.  
    Quarterback Robbie Stroub threw 17 times completing 13 for the yardage and had one pass intercepted after it was tipped as he played a complete ball game.  

  • Breds record 4-2 with win over...

    The Harrison County soccer Breds defeated Mason County Thursday in the Athletic Complex to run their record to 4-1 for the young season.  
    This was a match where the Thorobreds worked on their attacks from the back.  
    Possession and communication continued to be the focus of the coaches for the night as they prodded the players to work on these keys to victory.  
    The Breds jumped out to a 4-0 halftime lead with the focus at the half on a shutout for the night.  

  • HCHS cross country begins season...

    The Harrison County cross country teams ran at Asbury College Tuesday in the Chick-Fil-A Invitational and again Saturday at Ryle High School’s Invitational Meet.  
    The weather for both events was hot, brutally so, and very humid causing some asthma and allergies to make things difficult for the runners.
    The Asbury College meet had several quality opponents to compete against as well as the weather conditions, but still, the young runners showed improvement both over last week’s scrimmage and this same course a year ago.
