  • Playoffs begin tomorrow on...

    The Harrison County High School football Thorobreds will be seeking a bit of revenge tomorrow night as the KHSAA football playoffs begin statewide.

    The Breds ended the regular season with a so-so 5-5 mark, but did manage to sweep all three of their district contests and won the regular season district championship with wins over Pendleton County, Bourbon County and Franklin County.

  • Puckett makes state with 5th...

    Senior cross country runner Ryan Puckett earned his fifth trip to the KHSAA State Cross Country Championship with a fifth place finish in the class AA regional meet held on Saturday at A.J. Jolly Park in Campbell County.

    Puckett and the other 63 men’s runners overcame the elements on a cold and windy day that were less than ideal for cross country running.

  • Breds, Fillies prepping for...

    Mike Reitz and Jason Crisp have a lot in common. Both hail from Floyd County; Reitz from tiny Martin and Crisp from Prestonsburg. Both attended the University of Kentucky. Both are now head coaches at Harrison County High School.

    The similarities between the two don’t end with their backgrounds. Both are facing similar situations as the head coaches of the Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies, respectively.

  • Regional cross country meet this...

    The Harrison County High School Thorobreds and Fillies will compete in the Class AA, Region 4 cross country meet Saturday at A.J. Jolly Park in Campbell County. The varsity girls race is slated to begin at 10:30 a.m., with the varsity boys to follow at 11.

    Harrison County will compete against Bourbon County, Covington Catholic (boys), Franklin County, Highlands, Holmes, Lexington Catholic, Lloyd Memorial, Pendleton County and Western Hills.

    This year, Harrison County was moved from AAA, representing the largest schools in the state, to AA, the second largest.

  • Slow start dooms Breds

    Regardless of the sport, it is always difficult to bounce back the week after an emotional, draining victory and play well against a perceived lesser opponent.

    Once again, this exact scenario played out, this time with the Harrison County Thorobreds being victimized.

  • Volleyball ends with successful...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team saw its highly successful 2008 season come to an end on Tuesday night after being eliminated from post-season play by 16th ranked Campbell County in the semi-final round of the 10th Region Tournament in Mt. Sterling.

    The Fillies fell behind early in the first game of the best-of-three series, 14-6, but mounted a comeback, before eventually losing 25-21. In the second game, the Camels flexed their collective muscles and dominated the Fillies, winning 25-8.

  • Breds take district title in OT...

    Prior to last Friday night, the Harrison County Thorobreds football team had never won an overtime contest. They had lost all four OT games they had been involved in, dating back to 1981.

    They are now 1-4 in games that were not decided in regulation time.

    On Friday night, the Harrison County defense came up big, time and again, and a Van Isaac 10-yard touchdown scamper sealed the win on the Breds first offensive play in OT to secure the Breds first district football title since 2001, beating visiting Franklin County, 13-7.
