  • Pro teams need a quarterback

    While I realize that my title is not exactly a profound, brilliant statement, let me explain.  
    Sure, each and every team, pro or not, needs a quarterback and when the starter gets hurt it throws many teams into a tailspin.  
    However, professional teams seem to really hit the skids when their ace goes down.
    Some prime examples are taking place right now with the Cowboys, the Steelers and the Saints, and the Browns have also been affected.

    HCMS football season ends
    with losses to Grant County
    The Harrison County Middle School Colts finished the 2015 season Thursday evening in Ingles Stadium with a pair of losses to Grant County. The games were lost with identical 22-8 scores in favor of the visiting Braves.
    The seventh grade game was tied 8-8 at the half but Grant County’s running game proved too much for the Colts in the second half. The Braves scored twice on running plays after sustained drives.

    “What a great night of soccer,” exclaimed Coach Nick Hill. “We lost, but played the best, full 80 minutes of soccer that we have played all year.”  
    Hill’s comments came on the heels of the Thorobreds’ match in Lexington Thursday night with Lexington Catholic in which the Breds fell 2-1.  
    “I could not be more proud of these young men,” Hill continued. “We are playing our best soccer at just the right time.”

    The Harrison County Middle School girls are having quite a successful season even if the eighth grade team’s record doesn’t reflect it.  
    The sixth, seventh and eighth grades each have a team and play in the tough Bluegrass Conference south division.  
    The sixth grade finished its season 7-2 with a 5-1 mark in the south division.

  • Cross country runs in cold, rain...

    Mike Aldridge,

    Saturday was hardly a day with ideal conditions for a cross country meet. However, the Harrison County Middle and High School cross country runners competed in the Williamstown Invitational despite the conditions.  
    The high school had only two boys, Thomas Morris and Gannon Terhune, compete in the race with 101 other young men.  
    Morris ran the 5K race in 24:05 followed by Terhune in 26:57.
