    The Harrison County Thorobreds were unable to hang on to a five-point lead inside the last two minutes, and lost its opening-round game to Montgomery County on Saturday in the 10th Region Tournament at the Bank of Kentucky Center.

    Harrison County survived some early game jitters and managed to work its way to a 51-46 lead with 1:45 left in the game, but saw three straight empty trips seal its doom in a 55-52 loss.

    HCHS indoor track

    Two weeks ago. several Harrison County track team members participated in an indoor meet at Mason County.

    Three Harrison County athletes placed in their respective events at the big meet that included several teams from Kentucky and Ohio.

    Catherine Darnell was 4th in the high jump, clearing 4-4, Danni Kemplin was 8th in the 55 meter hurdles with a time of 10.45 seconds and Caleb Reeder was 8th in the 55 meter hurdles with a time of 9.36 seconds.

  • Deming falls to Fillies and Breds

    They took distinctly different routes to get there, but both the Harrison County Fillies and Harrison County Thorobreds enjoyed textbook starts to their respective post-season journeys.

    Both HCHS teams won 38th District championships as the weekend got started, the Fillies 39-26 over Deming on Thursday, and the Breds 62-54 over Deming on Friday.

  • Breds face Montgomery in...

    The first time Harrison County and Montgomery County played this year, both teams were trying to gather some much-needed momentum heading into post-season play.

    In their last regular season game, Harrison County dropped that home-court decision to the Indians, 55-45. In that contest, Harrison County fell behind early, made a run in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t seal the deal.

    As fate would have it, the same two teams play again, this time in a do-or-die situation in the first round of the 10th Region Tournament this Saturday in northern Kentucky.

  • Barnett, Moss place in state...

    Four of Harrison County’s seven qualifiers for the KHSAA State Wrestling Meet finished with winning records last weekend, with two of those grapplers earning medals in their respective weight classes.

    Sophomore Brandon Barnett led the way for Harrison County with a seventh place finish in the 171 pound weight class. He finished the tournament with a 4-2 record

    Junior Josh Moss took eighth place in the 135 class and finished with a 4-3 record.

  • Fourth quarter fells Fillies in...

    The Harrison County Fillies nearly pulled the upset of the year on Tuesday night in the first round of the 10th Region Tournament, held on the Hilltop.

    For three quarters, Harrison County executed their game-plan to near perfection and had an unlikely 35-31 lead over highly-regarded Clark County.

    The fourth quarter was a different story altogether, however. The Cardinals played flawlessly down the stretch, converted their free throws and outscored the Fillies 32-12 for a deceptive 63-47 win.

  • 10th Region semis tonight on...

    The girls 10th Region Basketball Tournament resumes tonight on the Hilltop with a pair of semi-final games. The winners of tonight’s games will square off for the 10th Region title  Friday night with a trip to the Sweet Sixteen at Diddle Arena in Bowling Green on the line.

  • HCHS cheerleaders fourth at state

    The squad of 21 girls took fourth place overall last Saturday in Bowling Green in the Super Large Division with a total of 10 teams competing.

    “I knew and the girls knew that this would be a close competition,” said HCHS coach DeDe Shirley on Tuesday afternoon. “It would come down to hitting all parts of our routine and looking clean to the judges.”
