  • Harrison County basketballers...

    The 2009-10 edition of the Harrison County Thorobreds will be a mix of veterans and some talented, but unseasoned youth.  

    One veteran is long-time Harrison County coach Mike Reitz, who along with assistants Billy Custard, Larry Kendall, Dr. Stephen Moses, and Ronnie Spicer will work to blend this mix into a competitive force by March. 

    Seniors Marcus Custard, Jared Martin, Malcolm Thomas and Zack Turner are some of the experienced players who Reitz is counting on for leadership. 

  • Fillies turnover game at...

    The Harrison County Fillies opened the 2009-10 basketball season with a 46-36 loss Tuesday night at Frankfort High School. 

    The Fillies played even the first quarter despite committing eight turnovers in the first frame, many of the unforced variety. The first period also saw senior center Sherese Doram pick up two fouls, which put her on the bench for the remainder of the half. 

  • Tell City 78, Cannelton 30...

    I want my grandchildren and yours to experience this.  It won’t be exactly the same because the schools are different, the times are different, but the thrill can be the once in a lifetime experience that I remember.  

    When I was growing up in Tell City, Ind., a small river town in the southern part of the state, 30 miles from Owensboro, high school sports was king. Tell City isn’t all that small, about 10,000 people in its most populated time, but it is not all that big either. 

  • Final rec league basketball...

    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Recreation Department will be having basketball sign-ups this Saturday at Sports Unlimited from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. This will be the final sign-up for kindergarten through sixth grade.

  • Stadium lights on after being...

    The brilliant light coming from the Hilltop is not the luminous North Star. It’s the lights from the new athletic complex.

    According to David Case, director of facilities with the Harrison County School District, lights at the new stadium were not functioning at their capacity and had to be replaced.

    The lights were recently tested and determined that they were not illuminating the field and track as guaranteed.

  • Football’s Black Sunday

    Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving when the stores open early ... real early, for the beginning of the Christmas season. Black Sunday was today for the fans of the teams from the northern division for the American Football Conference.

    Thorobreds play Augusta

    in Saturday Scrimmage

      The 2009-2010 edition of the Harrison County Thorobreds took to the court for the first scrimmage of the year Saturday in Pendleton County. The opponent was the hoopsters from Augusta. 

    The scrimmage consisted of a 40-minute running clock, which according to Coach Mike Reitz, was not conducive to an old-fashioned scrimmage.

    Basketball Breds open in

    Pendleton Panorama

    The Harrison County High School Basketball Thorobreds open the scrimmage season with an appearance in the Pendleton County Panorama Saturday at 3 p.m. The Panorama features seven games overall, four boys’ games and three girls’. 

    It starts at noon with Silver Grove and The Lady Jackets of Nicholas County, followed by the Nicholas boys facing off with Williamstown. 

  • Feeback trains the Wildcats

    When he was playing football for the Harrison County Thorobreds, Bobby Feeback was a kicker and punter.  Never in his wildest dreams did he think that in one short year he would be in Jordan Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala., with the Kentucky Wildcats. But there he was, one of 12 student trainers who keep the football Cats in tip top shape, taped, wrapped, stretched and ready to go.

  • Breds football coach needs to...

    I really like Harrison County’s new football coach, Mark Carroll. He seems like a hard working, sincere young person, who really has the players’ best interests at heart.  He does have an extremely difficult job to do and some problems that are long in need of fixing to address. He also has some new issues that have been caused by the building of the new stadium and the growing pains associated with that venture.
