    The Harrison County soccer Fillies traveled north two times in their most recent encounters with widely different results. 
    Thursday night Harrison County visited Pendleton County and came away with a 6-0 win.  Monday night Campbell County handed the Fillies a 5-0 loss, though two of the goals were scored after Coach Kevin Gaunce had substituted for every one of the starters and the Lady Camels’ starters remained in the fray.

    After a 0-0 tie with Bourbon County (3-6-2) last week the Harrison County Thorobreds again failed to get on the scoreboard, on Tuesday, losing to Model, 2-0.  
    The night began in a promising way as the Breds were moving the ball well and playing good defense.  Harrison County dominated the first half but they could not score.  At the half, the score was knotted at 0-0.

    Last year, was a learning year for Harrison County High School’s marksmanship team.

  • Big morning on the Hilltop, but...

    I thought that the Harrison County basketball community would be excited. This was an opportunity that few rural high school basketball programs have a shot at and one that will not come around often, if ever again.  
    Maybe I am naïve, a dreamer, or have my sights set too high. No, I don’t think so!  
    What am I going on about?  Last Saturday morning’s basketball clinic held by Northern Kentucky University head basketball coach Camryn Whitaker, her staff and all her players on the Hilltop for girls’ grades K-8.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds gave up 368 rushing yards to Rockcastle County as the 4-0 Rockets shot past the Thorobreds 42-13 on the Hilltop, Friday night.  
    The Thorobreds improved on their turnover problems of the previous four games only losing one fumble and throwing no interceptions but the offense could never get going.
