  • Fillies’ Gray and Philpott on...

    Harrison County will have two Fillies players, Whitney Gray and Madison Philpott, on the Scholastic Ball Report this Saturday at 11:30 on WKYT Channel 27.  
    The show’s host, Gary Ball, contacted Coach Kim Furnish who will accompany the girls on Monday to inquire about the girls attending the program.      
    Gray, who is a senior, was a member of the Governor’s Scholar program last summer held at Murray State University. Whitney has a 4.1 GPA and has scored a 33 on the ACT.  

  • Was Sunday Peyton Manning’s last...

    Before I go into the demise of Peyton Manning I want to go into two other things.  
    First, rather than write an article about the change in the Harrison County Thorobreds roster, I am going to just comment with a few facts.  
    D.J. Jenkins is back on the Breds’ roster after attempting to transfer to play at Scott County.
    There will be no blame levied here.
    The KHSAA, after Harrison County appealed, ruled that he could not play at Scott County.  He is now enrolled at Harrison County High School and is eligible to play.  

  • Volleyball
  • First intercollegiate basketball...

    One of the student activities at MCTC/Licking Valley Campus is basketball. The team, the Hilltop Blues, has been playing an intramural schedule for the past two years. However, this week, Thursday, Jan. 15, at 6 p.m., the first intercollegiate basketball game is scheduled at City Hall.   
    The Hilltop Blues is a team made up of faculty, staff and students.

  • Fillies roll over Lady Eagles 62...

    The Harrison County Fillies used balanced scoring and excellent ball handling to defeat Lexington Christian, 62-39, Saturday in Lexington.  
    Harrison County, in the girls’ first televised game this year, jumped out to a 19-5 lead by the end of the opening quarter.  
    The visiting Fillies were red hot from the field as they made eight of 13 tries including a perfect two for two from behind the three-point line by Chelsea Ingram.  
    In the same time frame, the Lady Eagles were only two of 10 from the field.  

  • Breds even record with 62-55 win...

    “This was the best defense we played all year,” remarked head Thorobreds Basketball Coach Larry Kendall Tuesday after the Breds defeated George Rogers Clark, 62-55. “Sure we had a couple of miscues but overall it was good defense.”  
    The Thorobreds had just evened their season record to 8-8 holding the 12-4 Cardinals to 19 of 67 from the field. George Rogers Clark was a dismal one of 11 from beyond the three-point line to add to their poor accuracy totals.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Thorobreds record evens at 7-7...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds dropped the championship game of the Gateway Classic to Lincoln County, 82-51, in an “ugly” effort Monday night.  
    On Saturday, Cooper High School was the scene of a 72-60 loss, which evened the season record at 7-7.
    The Lincoln County game saw the Patriots score the first 15 points and never look back as they completely dominated play.  
    The score at the end of the first period was 26-4 as the Breds were cold from the field and Lincoln County was red hot.
