    Youth baseball/softball sign ups underway
    Darrell Baxter, Cynthiana-Harrison County Parks and Recreation director, announced that sign ups have begun for the youth baseball and softball programs.
    They will continue through Saturday, Feb. 28. Hours are 2-5 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays at City Hall gym.

  • HCMS eighth grade Colts finish...

    Only a shot that rimmed in and out kept the Harrison County Colts from advancing to the Elite Eight in the KBA Middle School State Tournament.  
    The tournament, which was held in Lexington, saw the Colts advance into the Sweet 16 with wins in two pool play games and two tournament victories.  
    Harrison County won pool play games over E.J. Hayes of Lexington, 50-39, and South Laurel, 44-42, to advance into the tournament.  

  • Harrison County wrestlers second...

    When most teams in any sport finish second in the region, it is a cause for celebration.  
    That may not be so true for the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling squad.  
    After having their sights set on Johnson Central, to finish only three points behind them was disappointing for the Thorobreds.  

  • Bowlers Finish Fourth
  • Good things going on in Harrison...

    I heard the other day that some people consider the Democrat to be filled with negative news so this week I will be all positive.  
    The only question I have for the people who think and say this is have you paid attention to the world lately?  
    The Harrison County Middle School cheerleaders were repeat Bluegrass Conference winners along with winning the Region and finishing third in the state.  
    This competition over the weekend again established this group of girls as a dominant force in the middle school cheer circles.  

  • Larger squad competes Saturday...

    A larger group of Harrison County High School athletes traveled to Mason County Saturday to compete in the indoor track meet.  
    The meet featured nine girls’ teams and 10 boys’ so it was a good test for the athletes.  
    Field events were held along with hurdles and running events so the competition was similar to a spring meet.

  • Fillies lose two more close...

    The final scores do not represent the closeness or the intensity of play but are losses nevertheless. The Harrison County Fillies fell to a season mark of 8-20 with home losses to Woodford County and East Jessamine last week.
    On Wednesday, the Fillies trailed by seven at the end of the first period and, though they managed to cut into the lead in each quarter, could not catch the Lady Yellowjackets of Woodford County.  
    Senior forward Chelsey Ford led the Woodford County scoring with 21 points and dominated the boards early for 10 rebounds.  

  • Neil Furnish hired as HCHS...

    Harrison County High School’s Class of 2000 graduate Neil Furnish was selected last week to become the head football coach at his alma mater.  
    Furnish, 33, has most recently been a member of the Bourbon County High School coaching staff. They have won two regional championships and a regional runner-up in the past three years.  
    Furnish has coached at Bourbon County since 2012 as head freshman coach, pass game coordinator, quarterbacks’ coach and defensive backs’ coach.
