    On Monday, Harrison County opened against Woodford, which it has done at least three consecutive years.

  • Harrison grapplers take first in...

    The Harrison County High School wrestling team showed marked improvement last weekend and went 4-1 overall in the Nelson County Duals on Saturday, tying for the best mark of the day in the six-team tournament.

  • Busy schedules planned for Breds...

    The Harrison County High School basketball Thorobreds and Fillies will have plenty of opportunities to improve over the next few weeks of 2008.

    The Breds earned their first victory of the season last Friday night as they got off to a blazing start and knocked off homestanding Nicholas County, 76-47.

    Senior forward Ryan Puckett hit three first quarter three-pointers to get the Breds out of the starting gate quickly and led Harrison County with a career-high 24 points. The win improved the Breds’ record to 1-3.
