    Brian Royalty, a Cynthiana resident who has seen some success in stock car racing around Kentucky and in West Virginia, decided to branch out a bit last fall.

    He and his father/car owner/crew chief, Keith Royalty, headed for Hickory Speedway in Hickory, N.C., a track which bills itself as The Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars. Thats not an idle boast. A lot of the southern good ol boys have started or nurtured their careers at Hickory.

  • Breds send 10 to state

    The 2008 high school wrestling season came to and end last week with the 2008 KHSAA State Wrestling Tournament being held Feb. 14 16 in the states capital at the Frankfort Civic Center.

    Harrison County was represented in the event by 10 wrestlers and ended up placing 15th in the overall team standings for the double-elimination tournament.

    This was a great team effort and it showed how well-balanced we were even without a 119 lbs. or 285 lbs. entry in the championships, said Harrison County coach Russ Riegel. We were a really good team.

  • Breds cant spoil Cardinal senior...

    Harrison runners compete

    at Mason County indoor

    On Saturday, Feb. 16, Coach Danny Simpson and two Harrison County hurdlers traveled to Mason County to compete in an indoor track meet with a 20-team field.

    I was hoping to take a full team, but the combination of snow days and flu days didnt give us many days of practice the last two weeks, said Simpson.

  • Breds slip past Bluejackets in...

  • HCHS bowlers finish regular...

    The Harrison County High School girls and boys bowling teams took to the lanes for their last regular season match of the year on Sunday, traveling to Georgetown to face-off with Scott County.

    In each of the regular four-person team games, the girls recorded solid wins. In the two Baker games, the girls continued the good play, winning both convincingly.
