  • Breds split with Mason Co. and...

    After an exciting junior varsity game won in two overtimes, 61-55, by Mason County, the big crowd on the Hilltop was pumped for a tight game between the two varsity squads.  
    The crowd got what they paid for but it took the Thorobreds a quarter to deliver their end of the bargain.  
    Once again, Harrison County got off to a slow start caused largely by eight turnovers and poor shot selection.  
    The visiting Royals jumped out to a 20-to-7 lead after one quarter behind their big men, seniors Dorian Henry and Jake O’Mara.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Breds extend win streak to four...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds improved to 13-11 for the season by winning their fourth straight game Friday night, 85-72, over Bracken County.  
    The Thorobreds put four players in double figures in the game with senior Trenton Thompson’s triple double leading the way.  
    Thompson had 24 points, 15 rebounds and 10 blocked shots in a yeoman’s effort. D.J. Jenkins score 19 points while Zack Pulliam added 15 and Jordan Kenney scored 11.  

  • Fillies derail Lady Engineers in...

    It took a team effort and a couple of three-point plays for the Fillies to defeat Estill County Monday night in Irvine, 46-45.  
    Chelsea Ingram made a three-point shot with 11 seconds to go in regulation to tie the score at 41 to send the game into overtime.  
    Madison Kellione made an old-fashioned three-point play with eight seconds to play in overtime for the final 46-45 score.

  • Wrestlers compete at...

    Coach Luke Tucker thinks that his Harrison County wrestlers can compete for the region title Saturday at Belfry.  
    “Johnson Central and Montgomery County are both highly regarded,” admitted Tucker. “But I believe that we are capable of winning the title.”
    The Charger Classic at Jeffersontown last Saturday was the last warm up before the region at Belfry so the Breds’ coach rested some people.  

  • What happens to a legacy?

    Dean Smith, the legendary former coach of the University of North Carolina, passed away Sunday just three weeks short of his 84th birthday.  
    Smith was a coaching icon, having been at the helm of the Tar Heels for 36 years from 1961-1997.
    The Tar Heels were perennial national powers during his time, winning two national championships and playing in 11 Final Fours.  
    Advanced dementia was reportedly the major contributor to Smith’s death, which, though there probably isn’t a good way to die, this is one of the worst.

  • Winning streaks over for Fillies...

    Saturday night took a toll on the two-game winning streak of the Fillies and the four-game streak of the Thorobreds as both lost on the road.  
    The Fillies dropped a 57-48 verdict to Bishop Brossart in Alexandria as they fell behind early and could not catch up.  
    The Thorobreds trailed by 11 at the half but Collins went on a 17-to-2 run to open the second half for the 63-51 win.
    Brossart scored the first six points of the Fillies’ contest before senior Whitney Gray scored with nearly two minutes gone in the game.
