  • Colts drop pair to Georgetown,...

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts lost two games to Georgetown Middle School Monday night.  
    The seventh grade continued winless as they lost 69-13.  Ethan Lewis and Tayshaun Custard were the leading scorers with three points each.  Isaiah Mann and Blake Robinson each added two points.  
    The seventh grade record is now 0-13.
    The eighth grade Colts, in the words of Coach Glenn Lonaker, “just got out-physicaled.”

  • Wrestlers continue tough...

    The Harrison County High School wrestling team continues to battle a lack of numbers as it competes in some of the more prestigious meets across Kentucky.  
    Injuries and members quitting have caused difficulties in team scoring as the Breds are unable to compete in each weight class.  
    The same problem that plagued football has also been an issue for the wrestlers with many of the same young men that left football doing the same with the wrestling team.

  • A disappointing ending

    Before I go into the football playoffs in the NFL I want to congratulate Trenton Thompson for setting the single game record for points scored for Harrison County High School.  
    Thompson’s 43 points against Cooper Saturday night broke the record of 42 held jointly by Keller Works and Jerry Fogle.

    The Bengals and Steelers both left the playoff race rather unceremoniously over the weekend.  
    Pittsburgh lost to the Ravens in a home game and a game which they were favored to win.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Wrestlers take two of three in...

    With Woodford County and Simon Kenton hosting tournaments on the same day, it was hard to find quality teams to compete in the Harrison County Duals.  
    Campbell County, Boyd County and Grant County answered the bell Saturday morning as the field for the dual meet.  
    The Thorobreds took two of three contests defeating Boyd County 60-0 and Grant County 45-18 while dropping a close match with Campbell County 36-42.

  • Breds play for Gateway Classic...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds knocked off two teams in different ways Saturday and Sunday and will play Monday night for the Gateway Classic Championship.  
    The Saturday match up with Worthington (Ohio) Kilbourne saw the Breds come from behind to win 52-50.  
    On Sunday night, Harrison County built a big lead and then held off the Montgomery County Indians 52-45.  
    The Breds’ win over the Indians gives them a season mark of 7-5 going into Monday night’s championship game with Lincoln County (10-1).

  • Fillies finish with win in...

    After dropping close games to Powell County and Pendleton County, the Harrison County Fillies won the seventh place game in the Mingua Beef Jerky Classic in Bourbon County Sunday.  
    Harrison County beat district rival Nicholas County, 44-41, to end a five-game losing streak.
    The Fillies’ effort was suspect in the Friday match with Powell County as they were out rebounded by the much smaller Lady Pirates 35-33.  
    Once again in this game, Harrison County could not find the range from the field or the foul line.

  • Professional football, great for...

    The National Football League is the most popular professional sports league in the United States and second place is not even close.  
    Major League Baseball used to be but the game is too slow for many, especially the young, and there are so many games it drags on a little.  
    Football has always managed to leave the fans wanting one more game, which is the goal of every sporting venue.  
    Professional basketball has way too many games and while they deny it, the players only play hard in spurts and sometimes not until the playoffs.
