  • Thorobreds wrestle to 5th place...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team defeated Montgomery County, University Heights and Baden, Ohio, en route to a 3-2 mark and a fifth place finish in the Simon Kenton Duals Saturday.  
    Noah Mitchell rolled through the meet with a 5-0 record while Mason Fryman and Justin Williams were 4-1 losing by narrow margins.  
    The Breds were boosted by the return of senior Anthony Shirley who won the 100th match of his career.  

  • Fillies win over Mason County,...

    The week’s basketball action did not start out well for the Harrison County Fillies as they dropped a 69-28 Thursday night game to the Lady Bears of Bracken County.  
    The 8-5 visiting Lady Bears out-played the Fillies in every aspect of the game to take the victory.
    However, on Saturday night a different Harrison County team took the floor in Maysville St. Patrick’s tiny gym and played the 8-8 Lady Saints to a close game losing by one at 49-48.  

  • HCMS Colts clinch Southern...

    On Monday night, the Harrison County Middle School Colts eighth grade version continued to record victories as they added Powell County to their list of conquests.  
    Playing their third game in five days, the eighth grade squad ran off 10 straight points to open the second half and never looked back in defeating the eighth grade Pirates on the Bucs’ home floor.  
    Only three players scored for the Colts, led by Zach Pulliam who netted 16 points.  Brock Jenkins added 12 and Jovon Williams scored six points.

  • Halfway point for NCAA...

    The conference seasons are just beginning for the college basketball teams and there have already been many surprises and a lot of excitement.  
    It is apparent that on a given day or night there are probably 20 teams that could put the five or six wins together that it takes to win the March Madness tournament.  

  • Cynthiana Sin The’ Shaolin...
  • Harrison County Football Alumni

    The Harrison County Football Alumni will hold a meeting on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 2 p.m. at the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office. The meeting is to prepare for the annual banquet to be held in August.
    Hall of Fame inductees, time of banquet and any other business will be discussed.

  • Thorobreds second in HCIWT with...

    Harrison County’s wrestling team hosted its annual Harrison County Invitational Tournament on Wednesday, Dec. 28. and came away with the second place team trophy.  
    With what Coach Luke Tucker called “an indication of hard work paying off,” the Thorobreds defeated Western Hills, Dunbar, Ashland and Bullitt East during the grueling five dual match afternoon.
    The tournament-winning Bryan Station Defenders were the only team to defeat Harrison County by winning some extremely close matches in the finals.  

  • Breds cage Panthers 77-59 in...

    Senior Caleb Ford scored his 1,000th point early in the second period Tuesday night on the way to a game high 29 points, and sophomore Dillon Pulliam hit for 21 as the Harrison County Thorobreds ran over the Augusta Panthers 77-59 in Augusta.  
    The Breds never trailed as junior guard Jordan Stubbs shook his season-long shooting slump in the first period hitting for eight of his 11 points for the game early.  

  • Fillies defeat East Jessamine,...

    The Harrison County Fillies finished 2011 playing in the Lady Wolverine Christmas Tournament at Western Hills High School on Wednesday and Thursday last week.  
    On Wednesday, the Fillies overcame a sluggish first half to defeat the Lady Jaguars of East Jessamine by a 59-46 score.  
    This victory placed the Fillies in the fifth/sixth place game against the Lady Eagles of Leslie County on Thursday.  The Fillies lost this game by a narrow 45-43 margin in a most difficult way, yet in a promising fashion as well.

  • The second day of the new year...

    It has happened again. The bad thing is that more than one thing that shouldn’t happen at all has happened again.  
    The first repeat offense is the annual egg laid by the Big Ten in the bowl games. By early evening Monday, only Michigan State had won in five games in which the conference teams participated during the day with only Wisconsin still to finish in the Rose Bowl as I write this.  
    Before today, Iowa and Northwestern lost while Illinois and Purdue won and Michigan will play later in the week.
