  • Breds drop Senior Night game to...

    The Frankfort Panthers won their 20th game of the year Tuesday night as they hustled past the Harrison County Thorobreds, 69-59, on the Hilltop in Cynthiana.  
    The win gives Frankfort a 20-8 season record while the loss dropped Harrison County to 13-14 for the year.  
    The Thorobreds scored the first two points of the game, which would be their only lead of the game.   

  • Fillies win 2 of 3 games,...

    The Harrison County Fillies are getting things going the right way as the district tournament gets closer to tipping off.  
    The Fillies lost last Wednesday to St. Patrick, but then traveled to Paris and upset the Lady Hounds on Friday and romped over the Lady Colts of West Jessamine on Saturday.  
    The Fillies fell victim to foul shooting in the St. Patrick game as they were whistled for 19 fouls to the Saints’ nine leading to a big difference in free throw attempts.  

  • Harrison wrestlers Barnett,...

    The Region 7 wrestling meet at Dunbar Friday and Saturday decided who was to advance to the state meet this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Frankfort.  
    Two of the participants are no surprise as 189 lb defending state champ Brandon Barnett and the hard-fighting 112 lb Anthony Shirley will advance to the meet at the Frankfort Convention Center.  
    Barnett finished undefeated for the year at 41-0 despite most teams avoiding him during the season after he returned from his ankle injury.  

  • Middle school regular season...

    The seventh grade middle school Colts ended their regular season last week by winning the last two games and finishing third in the very tough Bluegrass Conference.  
    The seventh grade team earned the third spot by traveling to Nicholasville on Thursday and defeating the West Jessamine team, 41-31.  
    The Colts led by seven points at the half only to see West Jessamine rally in the third period to take a one-point lead. The Colts tightened the defense and held their opponent to three points while they were scoring 11 to post the 10-point win.  

  • Are my grandchildren me made...

    Before I get to my topic, I want to say congratulations to Dillon Pulliam.  
    On Saturday, playing against LaRue County, Dillon set the single game freshman scoring record for Harrison County High School when he scored 29 points to lead the Thorobreds.  
    Pulliam made nine three point shots, which tied the school record and another field goal to total his points.   The previous freshman record was held by Tony Talbott, who scored 22 points in a game as a first year player. The three point co-record holder is Kris Reitz.

  • Thorobreds lose at Mason County...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds fell below .500 for the first time since the Bishop Brossart game Friday night as the Thorobreds were defeated 57-33 by the Mason County Royals.  
    The loss dropped the season record to 12-13 for the Breds while the Royals improved to 13-12. The cold shooting Breds took a 3-0 lead on Dillon Pulliam’s three pointer and played the game tight until half way through the first period when the Royals took the lead at 7-6 and never trailed again.

    Fillies fall at Bryan Station, 67-49
    The Harrison County Fillies traveled south to Lexington Tuesday night to battle one of the top teams in the area in the Bryan Station Lady Defenders. Bryan Station, now at 22-4, has lost two times to Scott County, one time to Casey County (21-4) and once to Rockcastle County (26-1) during this season.

    Defense and team play leads Breds over Deming Thursday 71-62
    The 38th District became more confusing Thursday night as the Harrison County Thorobreds travelled to Mt. Olivet and beat Deming 71-62.  
    Deming defeated Pendleton County last week and Pendleton County defeated Harrison County the week before which leads to the opinion that the district championship is up for grabs.
