  • GRC Classic brings out the best...

    There was one common theme for the Harrison County cross country teams, both the high school and middle school, in the GRC Classic Saturday in Winchester. That was each squad had their best team showings and some improved individual performance as well.
    The greatest success was with the middle school girls as they won the team title in the four-team event.  
    The middle school girls out ran Rowan County, Conkwright and Clark Middle to take the title by a 14-point margin.

  • Harrison Co. soccer teams end...

    Freshman keeper Chelsea Ingram recorded her seventh and eighth shut outs of the season in the victories.

  • Irish sports, bowling and what...

    Patti and I are going to Ireland next week and I feel like I am going into a time warp as far as sports go.  Other than rugby, soccer and bowling, what other sports are considered to be Irish friendly.  
    Sure, Notre Dame is the Fighting Irish, but as far as I know all sports involving people from Ireland have fighting Irish in them. People used to say “What if I went to a fight and a European soccer match broke out?”

  • Breds can’t match Bulldogs’...

    There once was an advertisement on radio and television about driving too fast, which ended with “Speed Kills.”  
    The Harrison County Thorobreds found out Friday night that speed is hard to deal with and that bad luck comes in different forms.  
    The Thorobreds started the evening in Covington with four senior starters out with injuries.  
    Seniors Matt Carter, Joe Korona, Tyler Martin and Nick Slucher were each injured in the Highlands game last week and sat the game with Holmes out Friday night.

  • Soccer Breds edge Wildcats 3-2

    Last Thursday the Harrison County soccer Breds traveled to take on the Pendleton County Wildcats in Falmouth.  
    Coach Nick Hill was concerned more than usual before the match as he was without both junior Ben Anness and senior Josh Young and the Wildcats have been a nemesis for the past few years.  
    The Breds started off slowly and were a goal down before Anthony Shirley took a Kyle Foster pass and nailed it to the back of the net to tie at one each.   

  • Fillies maintain even record...

    Last Wednesday the Harrison County Fillies soccer team played host to one of the top teams in the region, George Rogers Clark, and were defeated by a 4-0 score.  
    The match was not as one sided as the score would indicate, but again the Fillies could not connect on good scoring opportunities.  Combine that with the fact that three of the four GRC goals were of the flukiest nature and the match is a tight, competitive battle.
