  • Breds shut out Bluejackets in...

    The Aaron Stepp Era of Harrison County football got off to a solid start last Friday as the Breds scored on their first offensive play from scrimmage in a 18-0 win over host Nicholas County in both teams first pre-season scrimmage of the year.

    The Breds went on defense first in the 10-play opening sequence and held the Bluejackets out of the end zone.

    Taking over on their own 30 yard line for its 10 play possession, Harrison County wasted no time in showing the Thorobred faithful what the 2008 offense would look like.

  • Fall sports underway on Hilltop

    The Harrison County High School Thorobreds football coaching staff was encouraged following Tuesday nights practice, especially coming on the heels of a few less-than-stellar workouts.

    I wasnt happy at all at how we had been practicing over the last week or so, said first-year Breds coach Aaron Stepp on Tuesday night. None of our older kids had really established themselves as good leaders for us, and I felt like we werent making much progress in a lot of areas. But Tuesday night, things started coming together a little better.

  • Football alumni banquet coming up

    Be prepared for some fine storytelling, exaggerated or not, when the Harrison County Football Alumni Association hosts its annual Hall of Fame Induction and Banquet at Harrison County High School cafeteria on Aug. 9.

    With more than 250 members, the HCFAA is undoubtedly the largest, most active and most productive sports support group in Harrison County.

  • Hilltop News - Elevated heat...

    On Tuesday, the Harrison County High School football team got some housekeeping business taken care of, but didnt take the field at all due to the combination of heat and humidity that raised the heat index above an acceptable level.

    With the heat-related deaths of several high school, collegiate and professional football and soccer players in the last few years, it has become a state mandate, and rightfully so, that every high school sports team, regardless of the season, must monitor and record the heat index.

  • Local girls capture Kick It 3v3...

    As of Monday night, Rick Chasteen is no longer the interim recreation director for the Cynthiana/Harrison County Recreation Department. Instead, the 58-year-old local resident is now the full-time recreation director for the CHCRD.

  • COMMENTARY: Ticket prices...

    A little clarification is perhaps needed to explain the somewhat new and revamped athletic ticket policies at Harrison County High School.

    First, it is important to understand that our athletic department at HCHS is almost 100 percent self sufficient. Fortunately, we have had in the past, and continue to have now, a central office and board of education that is understanding of the importance of athletics to our community, our school and, most importantly, to our student athletes.
