  • Halfway point for NCAA...

    The conference seasons are just beginning for the college basketball teams and there have already been many surprises and a lot of excitement.  
    It is apparent that on a given day or night there are probably 20 teams that could put the five or six wins together that it takes to win the March Madness tournament.  

  • Cynthiana Sin The’ Shaolin...
  • Harrison County Football Alumni

    The Harrison County Football Alumni will hold a meeting on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. at the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office. The meeting is to prepare for the annual banquet to be held in August.
    Hall of Fame inductees, time of banquet and any other business will be discussed.

  • Thorobreds second in HCIWT with...

    Harrison County’s wrestling team hosted its annual Harrison County Invitational Tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 28. and came away with the second place team trophy.  
    With what Coach Luke Tucker called “an indication of hard work paying off,” the Thorobreds defeated Western Hills, Dunbar, Ashland and Bullitt East during the grueling five dual match afternoon.
    The tournament-winning Bryan Station Defenders were the only team to defeat Harrison County by winning some extremely close matches in the finals.  

  • Breds cage Panthers 77-59 in...

    Senior Caleb Ford scored his 1,000th point early in the second period Tuesday night on the way to a game high 29 points, and sophomore Dillon Pulliam hit for 21 as the Harrison County Thorobreds ran over the Augusta Panthers 77-59 in Augusta.  
    The Breds never trailed as junior guard Jordan Stubbs shook his season-long shooting slump in the first period hitting for eight of his 11 points for the game early.  

  • Fillies defeat East Jessamine,...

    The Harrison County Fillies finished 2011 playing in the Lady Wolverine Christmas Tournament at Western Hills High School on Wednesday and Thursday last week.  
    On Wednesday, the Fillies overcame a sluggish first half to defeat the Lady Jaguars of East Jessamine by a 59-46 score.  
    This victory placed the Fillies in the fifth/sixth place game against the Lady Eagles of Leslie County on Thursday.  The Fillies lost this game by a narrow 45-43 margin in a most difficult way, yet in a promising fashion as well.

  • The second day of the new year...

    It has happened again. The bad thing is that more than one thing that shouldn’t happen at all has happened again.  
    The first repeat offense is the annual egg laid by the Big Ten in the bowl games. By early evening Monday, only Michigan State had won in five games in which the conference teams participated during the day with only Wisconsin still to finish in the Rose Bowl as I write this.  
    Before today, Iowa and Northwestern lost while Illinois and Purdue won and Michigan will play later in the week.

    Middle School Colts win games
    with Clark Middle Monday
    The Harrison County Middle School Colts hosted the Clark Middle Eagles Monday on the Hilltop and both the seventh and eighth grade teams improved their records.
    The seventh grade rolled to an 11-point halftime lead only to see the visitors cut the lead to four as the game wound down to the end. The Colts were able to connect on just enough free throws to hold off the Eagles and come away with a 34-25 victory.

  • No gifts at Gateway Holiday...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds found the competition quick and tenacious at the Gateway Holiday Tournament in Mt. Sterling last week losing to Marshall County and Male while defeating Owen County.  
    Wednesday afternoon the Breds faced the then 9-0 Marshals of Marshall County and lost by a 62-46 score in a game where they were never really a threat.  
    The Marshall County defense took senior Caleb Ford out of his game with a face guarding defense that frustrated Ford and left the Breds looking for scoring.  

  • Grapplers finish 16th in high...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestlers tuned up for the annual Harrison County Invitational Wrestling Tournament by competing last week in the Lafayette tournament in Lexington.  
    The Lafayette tourney is compiled of the top teams in the state including schools from 10 different regions, 26 teams overall.  
    The Thorobreds were 16th of 26 teams totaling 80 points.  
    The meet was won by Simon Kenton followed by Anderson County, Lafayette and North Hardin.
