They played at home last night in a Senior Night match against Lexington Christian Academy and will host their week-delayed Fall Fling on Saturday.

  • Breds host Pendleton Saturday

    After an unscheduled week off, the Harrison County Thorobreds are back on the field this Saturday for their first district encounter of the season when they play host to Pendleton County.

    Last Friday, the Breds had their game with Bardstown cancelled as a district-wide flu epidemic forced school officials to dismiss from school on Thursday and Friday.

    The edict meant that all school activities were postponed as well.

  • Runners compete in Maysville

    On Saturday, the Harrison County High School cross country teams competed in the Mason County Invitational.

    The Breds finished 12th and the Fillies were 14th in the toughest invitational meet to date for HCHS.      

    “We had a good week of practice and before the meet, I gave all our athletes goals that I wanted them to achieve,” said HCHS coach Danny Simpson. “These goals were to run the fastest times they had run so far this season. Our runners achieved those goals and, in some instances, shattered them.”

    The Harrison County volleyball team began a swing through its district opponents on Tuesday night when the Fillies traveled to Brooksville and defeated Bracken County in two straight games, 27-25 and 25-8.

    “We played very poorly in that first game, but bounced back and played much better in the second game,” said HCHS coach Bill Faulkner.

    Faulkner said the Fillies were playing without regular setter Hillary Bennett who was suffering from the flu, but hitter Madeline Schroeder is closer to being 100 percent after returning from an injury.
