  • Still some good things going on

    Before I get into my article I want to apologize to Grant Carr and his family for omitting Grant in my article about the Collins game where I listed the seniors that started the game.  It should have read the five seniors that started Dillon Pulliam, Mason Ritchie, Landon Palmer, Grant Carr and long-time manager Russell Crosthwaite.  
    Sometimes I can blame my mistakes on the people working at the paper, but this time I’m afraid it was all me.

  • Cynthiana Gems-Sapphires doing...

    The ages 6-11 Cynthiana Gems-Sapphires have competed in five competitions since July and have finished no less than second overall in the events.  
    The team participates in the Universal Cheerleaders Associ-ation and the National Cheerleaders Association.  They began in July in Nicholas County where they were first place winners in their Youth Level 1 division and Overall Grand Champions for All-Stars.  
    The following contest was a UCA tournament where they were selected first in the Youth Level 1 division.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Fillies, Breds roll into...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds disposed of their opponents from Pendleton County Tuesday night with one-sided victories in the 38th District semi finals.  
    The games, which were played in Falmouth, saw the Fillies hold the Lady Cats to 18 points in a 44-to-18 romp and the Thorobreds whip the Wildcats 64 to 36.
    The first game of the night started slow with Harrison County holding a 6-to-4 lead at the end of the first period.  

  • Fillies, Thorobreds battle...

    There are no moral victories especially after a team has led for a good portion of the game. However, when one considers the competition, Friday’s games at Montgomery County might be considered a moral victory, at least for the Fillies.
    The Fillies started Friday’s game against the Lady Indians by playing with the same control as they have the last few games.  
    Coach Kim Furnish’s squad controlled the tempo of the game and played some steady defense to take a 9 to 5 lead at the end of the first stanza.  

  • Mattox finishes 7th in state...

    Harrison County’s 106-pound wrestler, freshman Michael Mattox, finished seventh in his weight class Friday and Saturday at the KHSAA State Championship Meet held at the Kentucky Horse Park.  
    Mattox suffered a one-point loss in a decision on Friday night to Ansar Kurbanov of Louisville Iroquois to put him into the consolation bracket. He battled back Saturday winning three straight before losing to Dallas Ochsenbein of North Oldham in his fourth match of the day.

  • Youth Basketball
  • One man’s decision, sometimes

    The last few Harrison County basketball games that I have watched and some games on television have brought me to this conclusion.  The game is too difficult to officiate so let the players call their own fouls like we do in backyard and school ground games.  
    Or at least we used to when we played backyard and school ground games before hand-held electronic devices.  
    This would first eliminate the block/charge foul.  

  • Sports beat

    Track athletes continue
    improvement at Mason Co.
    Coaches Danny Simpson’s and Robert Walker’s Harrison County track runners traveled to Mason County for the third in the series of indoor track meets last Saturday.  
    Junior Kassidy Cook ran the second fastest all-time Harrison County at the 55M distance as she covered the distance in 9.35 seconds. Cook finished third in the event. She also ran the 55M dash in 8.10, which is also the second fastest for a Fillie at that distance.  

  • Doram selected First Team All...

    Harrison County senior Jordan Doram has been selected first team All-10th Region by the coaches of the 10th Region schools.  
    She is joined on the first team by Sarah Futscher of Bishop Brossart, Erica Rogers of Montgomery County, Sandra Skinner of George Rogers Clark and Asia Sims of Bourbon County.  
    Doram was the only Harrison County player listed on the three all region teams or the honorable mention list.
