  • Red hot Camels shoot past Breds...

    The team that many think is the team to beat in the 10th Region is defending champion Campbell County.  
    Friday night did nothing to change anyone’s thinking as the Camels beat Harrison County 85-58 in Mason County.  
    The opening game of the Mike Murphy Classic for the Breds saw the Campbell County team come out of the locker room on fire from the field shooting 62.5 percent in the first quarter.  

  • Lady Rebels smother listless...

    Boone County Lady Rebels’ coach, Nell Fookes, is in her 30th year as the mentor.  
    During those 30 years, her teams have been known for solid, error-free offense and a tight defense.  
    The 2014-15 edition, despite her claims to the contrary, appears to be out of the same mold.  
    On Friday night on the Hilltop, the Lady Rebels got off to a quick start taking an 8-0 lead.  
    The Fillies battled back to cut the lead to 10-6 at the end of the period but the die was set for the game.

  • Breds lose two close games, play...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds saw their record fall to 4-3 for the year as they lost two games last weekend.  Top-10-rated Holmes edged the Breds on Friday, 65-57, and undefeated Augusta shot their way past the Thorobreds Saturday, 72-64.
    On Friday night, the Breds started quickly, but Holmes used a rebounding edge to take a 19-14 lead by the end of the first quarter.  
    The Thorobreds were playing without forward Trenton Thompson, who is averaging 28 points per game, and more crucially in this contest almost six rebounds a game.  

  • Fillies snap skid with 68-45...

    Monday night was a good night to be a Fillie on the Hilltop as the Harrison County Fillies defeated Paris 68-45 to snap a four-game losing streak.  
    On top of the varsity victory, the junior varsity, led by Emma Darnell’s 13 points, won their first game of the season. Winning 32-26 over the Paris junior varsity.  
    The junior varsity had dropped three games last week 21-13 to Ryle; 38-14 to Nicholas County; and 26-16 to Dixie Heights.

  • Thorobreds finish second in...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team traveled to Paintsville Saturday morning and finished second in the Johnson Central Duals.  
    The Breds were undefeated in dual match ups beating Pikeville, 54-15, Sheldon Clark, 42-28, and Johnson Central “B,” 45-18.  
    The Breds accomplished this with several members of the team not wrestling due to injury and illness.  
    The 113- pound Michael Mattox, 170 lbs Colin Coy and 220 lbs Kellon Williams were winners in their weight classes.

  • Who would want this job?

    There are good and bad parts to every job but there are some jobs that are thankless in my eyes, especially in sports.  
    I thought about this last night when I was talking to Harrison County athletic director Brad Allison.  
    Take his job for instance.  There is an athletic event of some sort nearly every evening of the week and most weekends.  
    Either Brad or Scott Fields is in attendance for whatever is going on, especially at home, but also on the road at times.
