  • The pressure is finally off

    Before the topic, I want to recognize a couple of Harrison County people who distinguished themselves in the Kentucky District Tournament of the National Speech and Debate Association held in March at Centre College.  
    Former Harrison County student and all around famous guy Colmon Elridge was awarded the first Alumni of the Year award by the district.  
    Elridge is a 1999 graduate of Harrison County High School who attended St. Edward Catholic School.  

  • Breds rip Bluejackets in five...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds, smarting from their first loss of the season Tuesday, romped past Nicholas County, 10-0, on Wednesday.  
    Sophomore Nathan Fryman went the distance for the Breds giving up three hits, striking out nine without walking a batter.  
    The Thorobreds made one error in the game.
    Nicholas County threatened in only the fourth when Dillon Webb singled with two outs, Aschten Saunders reached on an error and Christian George singled to load the bases.  

  • Breds two for two in Florida,...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved their season record to 8-1 early this week with two wins in Florida.  
    On Saturday, senior Mark Taylor hurled a complete game backed by good defense as the Thorobreds defeated Crestview 8-4.  
    The Breds used timely hitting to score two runs in both the first and third innings before plating four in the fifth to put the game away.  
    Senior catcher Robbie Stroub led the Harrison County hitting attack going two for three. Stroub also had his first home run of the year and drove in three runs.

  • Thompson signs to play...
  • Fillies improve to 4-3 with wins...

    Wednesday night on Shirley Field the Harrison County Fillies made quick work of the Bracken County Lady Bears in a three-inning 16-0 rout.  
    Junior Jami Davis allowed only two hits, both in the first inning, as she shut down the Lady Bears (0-2).  
    Bracken County had back-to-back singles with one out in the top of the first but Davis struck out the next two batters to end the game’s only threat.
    Harrison County scored four times in the bottom of the first on five hits including three doubles in a row with two outs.  

  • The most exciting week in sports?

    The NCAA tournament winds down to the last three games, the Masters is played and baseball starts all in the span of one week.  
    One could argue that this is the year’s most exciting week of sports.  
    Individually, Super Bowl week or the World Series might challenge one of the three, but put together this week’s events are hard to surpass.
