  • Thorobreds mercy rule Paris,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team improved to 3-7-2 with a win over Paris on Thursday and a tie with Model Tuesday night.  
    The Paris match was one that started slow, which concerned Coach Nick Hill.  
    “We are never sure which team is going to show up and the slow start worried me a little,” he said. “But we turned it on pretty quickly and made short work of the Paris team.”  
    Lance McIlvain, Josh Young and Grant Carr each scored in the first half as the Breds took a 3-0 lead into the intermission.  

  • Cross country runners post...

    Mason County’s course has always proven to be a fast course for Harrison County runners and Saturday was no exception.  
    Of course, the cooler temperature didn’t hurt any either as the varsity and middle school runners ran their better times of the year.  
    Freshman Brooke Frederick ran the 10th fastest time ever for a Fillies cross country runner as she toured the 5000M in 24:38.
    This was good enough for a 40th place finish in the 96-runner field.  

  • Breds fall to Colonels 35-28 as...

    Harrison County had a fumble and an interception in its last two possessions while Bourbon County scored to defeat the Thorobreds, 35-28, Friday night in Paris.  
    This was a record-setting night for Harrison County’s Nick Slucher as he broke the school record for all-purpose yards in a game and the career mark for kick-off return yardage. But all in vain.  
    Slucher had 362 all-purpose yards, which topped his own mark of 330 that was set last year against the same Colonels.  

  • Mike’s Minute

    If any or all of the expansion comes about that is being discussed, there are going to be some super conferences.  
    The way talk is today the Big East is going to suffer some losses and the remaining teams in the conference better get their collective bags packed to move themselves.  
    Over the weekend, Pittsburgh and Syracuse began to publicly make overtures toward the ACC and many, including Coach K, were welcoming them with open arms.  

  • Golf Breds finish sixth in...

    Harrison County seventh grader Reese Asher led the Harrison County Thorobreds to a sixth place finish in the Bluegrass Conference Tourney held last week in Mt. Sterling.  
    Asher shot a nine-hole total of 40 followed by fellow seventh grader Jake Jones and sophomore Myles Davis, who each shot 46.  
    Sophomore Sam Levi had a 48 to round out the scoring for Harrison County in the junior varsity affair.  

  • Fillies take third straight...

    The Harrison County Fillies soccer team edged Lafayette Monday night 1-0 at LeBus Field to win their third straight match and improve the season mark to 5-4-1.  
    The tough schedule that the young (for the most part) Fillies have undertaken this season is beginning to pay off as they are rounding into a team that can play the close game well.  
    Sophomores Haley Carr and Marly Jenkins combined for the goal against the Lady Generals as Carr buried Jenkins’ pass from the corner into the back of the visitor’s net.  

  • Golfers finish fourth in Central...

    Monday evening the Harrison County boys’ golf team toured the Mt. Sterling Country Club in their best effort of the year to finish fourth of seven teams with a team total 176 score.  
    This finish had the Breds defeating two teams, Montgomery County and Bourbon County, who had defeated them in dual meets this year.  
    Anthony Shirley shot a 38 to lead the Harrison County team in scoring followed by Shalyn Barnes (42), Zach Schneider (46) and Stephen Lemons with a 49.  

  • Harrison County Volleyball wins...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team is hitting stride as they head into the final three weeks of the regular season.  
    Despite losing in a lackluster performance Tuesday night at Lexington Christian, Coach Bill Faulkner sees a good light at the end of the tunnel.
    “The girls were a little out of sync tonight,” he noted after the loss. “Allison Cordray, our senior setter and team leader, was out with an illness and we really missed her.”  

  • Ten years ago, how we remember

    Sept. 11, 2001 is a day that changed the United States of America forever.  
    It has been interesting how the sports world has reacted to the 10th anniversary this week and the rumors around some of the action taken by the NFL.  
    First, let me promise you that my article will not be an apology to the Arab world for being pro American. In fact, anyone who knows me knows that I fly a flag at my home and don’t care who knows that American is right and if someone doesn’t like how we are there is an exit where they came into the country.  

  • Harrison County fumbles chance...

    The first quarter of the Mason County vs. Harrison County football game at the Athletic Complex Friday was a lesson in how not to play.  
    The first two possessions ended in fumbles and Mason County’s next possession climaxed with a safety for the hometown Thorobreds as Cory Webber tackled the punter in the end zone.  
    After the safety, the Royals’ free kick put the ball on the Mason County 35-yard line and a short run, a holding penalty and two incomplete passes found the Breds punting from the Royals’ 49.
