  • Colts complete regular season in Pendleton Co.

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts completed the regular season Wednesday night as they battled the Wildcats of Phillip A. Sharp Middle School.  
    The HCMS eighth grade team will advance to the Bluegrass Conference Tournament as they host Georgetown Middle Tuesday night.  
    The winner of that game will face Scott County Middle on Thursday with the finals at Elkhorn on Friday.
    The sixth grade Colts jumped out to a 6-1 lead after one quarter and pulled steadily away for a 33-23 victory.  

  • This and that

    The Class “A” Basketball tournament is over with both the girls’ and boys’ tournament winners hailing from the 9th Region.  
    Covington Holy Cross and Newport Central Catholic were the winners.  
    Newport Central Catholic won for the third straight year, which sounds like it is time for a move up to the next level. I would propose that when a team wins the Class “A” that they have to move to a higher class for at least one year.  
    This would help give the non-recruiters a chance to win one now and then.  

  • Cook sets another hurdle record in Wildcat Classic

    Senior Kassidy Cook broke another of Katelyn Gray’s Harrison County High School hurdles records Saturday, this time in the 60M hurdles.  
    Cook was competing along with some others from the track team in the Wildcat Track Classic held at the University of Kentucky.  
    The Wildcat Track Classic had competitors from around the state with some events sporting as many as 100 athletes.  
    Cook finished second in the 60M hurdles in a photo finish with a time of :09.29 seconds.  
    Gray’s 2007 record was :09.71.

  • Harrison County girls win bowling region, advance to state finals

    The Harrison County girls’ bowling team won the region last weekend and will compete for the state championship as a team on Friday the 13th.  
    The state meet will be held at Eastland Lanes.  
    The Harrison County team members are Shaylee Carter, Jessica Wilson, Andra Gaunce, Josie Vaughn, Shelbi Morris, Brooklyn Fryman, Kelsi Whitson, Miracle Switzer, Alexys Switzer and Tara Ross.   
    The boys’ team also bowled well finishing fifth in a very strong field.  

  • Colts lose opening conference tournament game to Georgetown

    Georgetown Middle School used a 10-point fourth-quarter advantage to break a tie and win the opening game of the Bluegrass Conference tournament 56-46 over the Harrison County Colts.  
    The game was tight through out as Georgetown held only a three-point lead with about three minutes to play.  
    The visiting team made a four-point play out of a technical foul and took a seven-point lead which was too much for the Colts to overcome.  

  • Cynthiana needs growth, but a tax is not the answer

    By Scott Grannis,
    Guest Editorial
    Throughout my life I recall my father saying “you can’t fight City Hall.”
    But when push came to shove, he did. I believe, as I think he did, not only that you can, but as a conscientious citizen, you must.
    Government rarely does a good job policing itself, so it is our jobs as citizens, to observe and speak out when a wrong is being committed. It is in that guise I write today.

  • Philpott leads Fillies to consecutive wins over Williamstown and Augusta

    Harrison County junior Madison Philpott changed her jersey number from 20 to 23 and the Fillies won two straight games for the second time this season.
    On Monday, the Fillies took an early lead and went on to defeat Williamstown (12-9) by a 50-42 score.  
    Philpott scored eight of Harrison County’s first 12 points as she played with confidence that she hadn’t shown this season.  
    Senior Kelsey Roberts, who started in place of Chelsea Ingram who missed the game with an illness, came up big in the first half as well.
