  • Rockets shut down Breds, 17-0

    The Harrison County Thorobreds found out first hand exactly how hard a rock is on Friday night in Mt. Vernon.

    In a non-district football match up, the homestanding Rockcastle County Rockets shut down the Harrison County offense, found just enough offense of its own, and defeated the Breds, 17-0.

  • Balanced attack leads Breds past...

    When Aaron Stepp took the reins of the Harrison County Thorobreds football program, his reputation preceded him. He had developed one of the most prolific passing attacks in the state while at Clay County.

    Harrison County fans thought they would see the day arrive when footballs filled the air on Friday night and the new scoreboard at Ingles Stadium would be more than broken in.

  • Soccer seasons end for Breds and...

    Neither the Harrison County Fillies nor Thorobreds will advance to the 10th Region Tournament next week, as both were eliminated in the semifinals of the 24th District Tournament at Stonerside Field earlier this week in Paris.

    The Thorobreds were knocked out of the post-season on Monday night as they were defeated by top-seeded Montgomery County 1-0.

  • Runners romp at Williamstown

    The Harrison County High School cross country teams traveled to Williamstown for the Williamstown Invitational on Saturday.

    On the boys’ side, all varsity and JV runners medaled as Harrison County ran against just the host, Williamstown.

  • Whalen finishes 14th in state

    It didn’t play out quite like she envisioned it, but the end result was just fine for Polly Whalen.

    Whalen, a junior golfer at Harrison County High School, finished her rain-shortened first round on Wednesday last week, had a quick lunch, then went right back on the course for another 18 holes of golf in the Leachman Pontiac-Buick-GMC/KHSAA Girls’ State Golf Tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club.

  • Runners compete at Dunbar...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies cross country teams traveled to Masterson Station Park in Lexington on Saturday for the Dunbar Invitational. Both teams enjoyed the outstanding weather and followed up with top-notch finishes.

    The varsity boys had one of their best races of the year and placed sixth in a 10-team field.

  • Breds, Fillies prep for district...

    Both the Harrison County Thorobreds and Harrison County Fillies have one more regular season game on their respective schedules, with both 24th District Soccer Tournaments set to begin at Stonerside Field in Paris.

    Both teams are looking to try and snare some momentum heading into the post-season, and both teams will get a final chance to do that tonight.

  • Golf championship hampered by...

    Polly Whalen was only able to get in three holes in the first round of the Leachman Pontiac- Buick - GMC/KHSAA Girls’ State Golf Championship at the Bowling Green Country Club on Tuesday.

    Whalen, a junior at Harrison County High School, was scheduled to tee off at 1:15, CST, on Tuesday afternoon, but didn’t hit her opening tee shot until 5:15. At about 11 a.m. heavy rain, thunder and lightening forced suspension of play. By 3:30 p.m., the thunder and lightening had left the area, and the players were sent back on the course in a steady rain.

  • Mistakes doom Breds, LexCath...

    It was the classic case of moving from the penthouse to the outhouse for the Harrison County Thorobreds this past Friday night.

    Two weeks ago, after a slow start, the Breds enjoyed a big second quarter and romped past the Bourbon County Colonels, 49-14. All but the first two minutes of the second half was played with a running clock after Harrison County extended its initial lead to 45 points.

  • Fillies on uptick as District...

    The Harrison County Fillies are saving their best for last with the 38th District Volleyball Tournament looming on the horizon.

    Harrison County has been on a roll over the past three weeks, suffering only two losses since Sept. 13, both of them to highly regarded area teams. Their only losses in that time period have come to Lexington Catholic and Villa Madonna.
