Today's Sports

  • Middle school basketball
  • Cross country teams win trophies...

    It was cold and windy Saturday in Frankfort but that is apparently the weather the Harrison County Cross Country teams like as the varsity girls and boys each brought home trophies and a bevy of medals from the Capital View Classic.  
    The race was run at the Archives, which is a difficult, hilly course. Still, the Harrison County contingent including the middle school runners had some very good times.
    The Fillies finished second as a team in the competition as Franklin County won the team event.

  • Sports beat

    Coach Kim Furnish and her staff will be holding a series of clinics for girls third through fifth grade at the Harrison County High School gym beginning Saturday, Oct. 22. They will be held four consecutive weeks ending on Saturday, Nov. 12.
    The clinics will be instructional with the participants working one-on-one with the coaching staff and the varsity Fillies.  There will also be drills and team competition, which will be geared toward improving individual and competitive skills.  

  • I am making the most of my time

    We never know how long we have to be on earth so it is a great idea to make the most out of the time we have.  This fall I have been busier than ever with my work, which requires traveling to several states, writing for the paper, officiating football and coaching peewee football.  

  • Bluebirds fly by Breds in 68-0...

    The Highlands Bluebirds took 13 seconds to establish superiority Friday night as quarterback Patrick Towles hit Jac Collinsworth with an 80-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage to set the stage for the Bluebirds’ 68-0 win.  
    Highlands scored five more touchdowns in the first period and with five minutes still to play in the first half, had scored the points necessary for a continuous running clock for the rest of the game.
    The half time score was 48-0 in favor of Highlands.

  • Fillies win soccer Senior Night...

    Six seniors took the field Monday night on Senior Night at LeBus Field and were awarded by a sound thumping of Frankfort 4-0.  
    Seniors Mary Kate Davis, Katlynn Horschler, Natasha Ingram, Sara Jenkins, Andrea Livingood and Nikki Taylor were each recognized during the Senior Night ceremonies.  
    The game was a sound performance by the Fillies. While they scored four goals, they had many shots on goal that could have made the score much more lopsided.  

  • A wrap up to baseball 2011

    I was listening to Cincinnati radio Sunday morning after church and heard what was sort of an ominous remark concerning the Reds’ season, which made me think to write this.
    The program host noted that after last night (Saturday) the Reds were guaranteed a losing season for 2011.   
    When one considers the talent on the Reds, it seems hard to believe that they finished with a less than winning season. This had me thinking maybe I would consider each position and compare the player in Cincinnati to the rest of the National League.

  • Volleyball Fillies net win No....

    After beating Deming, who has one of the better records in the region, in straight sets last Thursday, the Harrison County Fillies had a big task in front of them Tuesday night on the Hilltop.  
    The George Rogers Clark Lady Cards came into Cynthiana with a modest 12-11 record earned during an early-season tough schedule. The Fillies had the additional pressure of Senior Night, which while a great night can distract a team from the job at hand.

  • Harrison’s Cross Country team...

    In true cross country style, the Berea course has a creek for the runners to run through as they travel the assigned route for the 5000 meter race.  
    This usually causes wet and slippery conditions and slower times, but the Harrison County team had some good times on Saturday.
