    The 2015 Harrison County Football coaching staff is a combination of a few coaches from previous years and many new coaches.  
    Neil Furnish is in his 11th season as a coach, but his first as a head coach, thus this will be the first staff he has compiled.  
    One constant among the coaches is that most of them are Harrison County graduates or Harrison County natives.

    Most coaches who graduated eight seniors would be crying the blues, but not Harrison County’s Thorobreds soccer coach Nick Hill.  
    “I am looking forward to this season and expect great things out of this group,” Hill said last week. “We have some great leaders who are really stepping up and making each other and every one else work hard.”

    The Harrison County golf team began a most ambitious schedule last week with matches on four different venues.  
    The Pendleton County Tournament, played on the course of the Northern Kentucky Golf Club, was the setting for the first outing for the Fillies and the Thorobreds on Friday.
    The Thorobreds had their most successful tournament in Coach Jason Crisp’s eight-year tenure as they finished second in the 12-team tournament.

    Harrison County’s volleyball coach Bill Faulkner likes to use the Bluegrass State Games as a measuring stick to see what his team needs to work on before the regular season gets under way.  
    This year’s games presented a perfect opportunity as the Fillies ran into some stiff competition yet fared well for the most part.  

  • They are traded like cattle and...

    The Major League Baseball trade deadline is fast approaching and already the Reds have sent Johnny Cueto to the Kansas City Royals.  There have been a few other trades but Cueto is the first really big-name player, sorry Aramis Ramirez, to be traded in this “trading period.”  
    Ramirez was traded to the Pirates from Milwaukee last Thursday for a couple of minor league prospects and is probably, next to Cueto, the best player to be moved during the trading deadline time period.

    Two annual events this weekend: Maroon/White Madness
    and Hall of Fame banquet
    The Harrison County Thorobreds football team returned Monday afternoon from camp at Eastern Kentucky University with some bumps and bruises.  
    “I have some kids who need to heal for our scrimmage on [Friday] Aug. 14 and the first game on the 21st,” said Coach Neil Furnish. “We have changed the Maroon-White game to an open practice to facilitate the healing.”

    Coach Deanna Lunsford, in her second year at the helm of the Harrison County cross country team, welcomed 11 veteran runners to begin the 2015 season.  
    While veteran, the runners are still fairly young with only one senior and two juniors in the lineup.  
    Senior Tamara Lunsford along with juniors Abby Cooper and Sandra Brock are the only older runners. Brock is in her first year.  

  • Mentor-youth dove hunt sign-ups...

    Registration for mentor-youth dove hunts sponsored by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will begin Monday, Aug. 10.
    These hunts include specially set-aside fields for adults wishing to take up to two youths (ages 15 and younger) dove hunting. The number of hunters in each field is limited, with spaces reserved by calling Kentucky Fish and Wildlife to register. Slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
