  • Football not as fast-paced as it...

    Heres another example of you-cant-always-believe-what-you-see.

    On Tuesday night before the Breds soccer game with Grant County, I had a nice long visit with one of the referees for the contest, Alan Southerland.

    After seeking Alan out to pay him for his services that evening and introducing myself to him, it took about a nanosecond to realize that he was originally from somewhere other than Central Kentucky.

  • Fall sports update at HCHS

    The Harrison County High School volleyball team got back to its winning ways on Tuesday night hosting Madison Southern and coming away with an easy win 25-14 and 25-15.

    The freshman Fillies and JV Fillies also bested the Lady Eagles in their two preliminary contests.

    We played much better and are showing signs of improvement, said HCHS coach Bill Faulkner. We have a young team this year and will have our ups and downs, but are gaining valuable experience.

  • Breds take 2-1 loss against...

    In boys soccer, the Breds lost a heartbreaker to district rival Pendleton County on Tuesday night, 2-1. The host Wildcats scored first, but Harrison County answered with a goal by Jake Jenkins at the 15 minute mark of the second half to knot the score at 1-1.

    Bobby (Feeback) played a nice through ball to Jake who outran a defender to the ball and scored, is how Harrison County coach Nick Hill explained the Breds lone goal.

  • Bad week for HCHS sports

    As far as wins and losses go, it hasnt been the best week for Harrison County High School sports teams.

    However, tough competition and close games should payoff for the Thorobreds and Fillies as their respective seasons progress.

    On Monday night, the Harrison County Fillies ran into a buzz saw and were defeated by a strong Lexington Christian Academy team 4-0 in Lexington.

    The 14th ranked Eagles scored three first-half goals to take control of the game, but Harrison County coach Kim Jenkins was anything but disappointed with the efforts of her team.

  • Fillies unable to settle Lady...

    On Tuesday, while the girls volleyball team dropped a tough decision to Pendleton County in downtown Falmouth, the Fillies volleyball team took one on the chin against the Lady Cats on the hill at Pendleton County High School.

    Coming off easy wins over Nicholas County and East Jessamine to start the regular season, Harrison County was victimized by its inability to settle in and play its game against Pendleton County.

    The host LadyCats won two straight over the Fillies in the best of three series, 25-22 and 25-19.

  • Breds shut out Bluejackets in...

    The Aaron Stepp Era of Harrison County football got off to a solid start last Friday as the Breds scored on their first offensive play from scrimmage in a 18-0 win over host Nicholas County in both teams first pre-season scrimmage of the year.

    The Breds went on defense first in the 10-play opening sequence and held the Bluejackets out of the end zone.

    Taking over on their own 30 yard line for its 10 play possession, Harrison County wasted no time in showing the Thorobred faithful what the 2008 offense would look like.

  • Fall sports underway on Hilltop

    The Harrison County High School Thorobreds football coaching staff was encouraged following Tuesday nights practice, especially coming on the heels of a few less-than-stellar workouts.

    I wasnt happy at all at how we had been practicing over the last week or so, said first-year Breds coach Aaron Stepp on Tuesday night. None of our older kids had really established themselves as good leaders for us, and I felt like we werent making much progress in a lot of areas. But Tuesday night, things started coming together a little better.
