    The improvement in the Harrison County Thorobreds that was apparent last week in Grant County was not on the field Friday as the Breds lost 47-7 to Newport Central Catholic (2-3).
    The Breds (1-4) took the opening kickoff and picked up a quick first down on a Brock Jenkins pass to Jovon Williams, but then fell apart offensively.

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team went to Scott High in Covington Thursday night with a nice 14-8 record,  but came home licking its wounds after dropping two straight sets to the Lady Eagles.
    The home-standing Lady Eagles improved to 19-1, winning their 18th straight match with a 25-9, 25-7 advantage.
    The Fillies were overwhelmed by the tall, talented Scott High squad.

    Saturday Coach Deanna Lunsford and the Harrison County High School and Middle School Cross Country teams headed for Maysville to run in the Mason County Invitational.  
    The teams did not have enough individual runners so there are no team scores.  
    The sixth grade boys competed with 74 other runners with Justin Turner finishing 10th in the 2K run.  
    Daniel McNees was 40th and Kyle Sheppard 65th.  

  • They should not have said that

    In this modern age of communication there are statements made by coaches and others that they know will be quoted as well as statements made that for some reason they believe will not be reported.  
    More often than not, the statements come back to haunt or at least bite the speaker. There are two examples of such statements that just occurred over the weekend.  
    The first and most glaring was the “Old Ball Coach” Steve Spurrier’s remark a few years ago that the University of Kentucky would never beat him in football.
