  • Thorobreds run past Wildcats in...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds started slowly Friday at Pendleton County. They trailed at the half 7-0 before running over the home squad for three scores in the first six minutes of the third quarter. They ended with a 20-7 scrimmage win.  
    The game, which was a defensive struggle early, started 30 minutes late as Harrison County was notified of a later start when they arrived on site to play at 7 p.m.  
    Pendleton County picked up a first down on the first drive, but was forced to punt on the next series.  

  • Fillies begin Gaunce era with 5-...

    The Coach Kevin Gaunce era began last night in Maysville with the Harrison County Fillies making quick work of the Lady Royals with a 5-1 victory.  
    Junior Amelia Bolin waited about five minutes before she broke clear of the defense and got into position for a point blank shot.  
    The ball bounced off the corner post, but freshman Kelby Gaunce was there to score her first varsity goal for the 1-nil lead.  
    Shortly after this goal, Bolin scored her first goal of the season on a perfect throw from senior Hannah Thomas.

  • Fillies volleyball slips past...

    After the freshman squad and the junior varsity lost two games to none, the Harrison County Volleyball Fillies took the varsity match 3-1 over the Pendleton County Lady Cats.  
    The match played in Falmouth was a very spirited affair with a good contingent of students and parents on hand to cheer on the home team.  
    Still the Fillies were able to prevail 25-20, 22-25, 25-22, 25-23 to open the season in a positive manner.  

  • Mercer County wins final...

    The last scrimmage of the pre-season was held on LeBus Field last Friday with the Breds going down to defeat to the Mercer County Titans, 6-2.  
    The match was a tale of two halves as Harrison County jumped out to an early lead with good passing and offensive runs.  
    The Thorobreds scored about 20 minutes into the match on a goal by Jesse Klapheke as he volleyed a rebound off the goal post into the net for a 1-nil advantage.  
    The offense continued to push the issue as they scored again five minutes later on a goal by Logan Wiley.  

  • HCMS Colts lose opener to...

    The Harrison County Middle School Colts traveled to Winchester Thursday for a football doubleheader with the newly formed Campbell Junior High School.  
    Clark Middle and Conkwright Middle have combined to make one very large junior high school in Winchester.  
    The seventh grade team lost, 38-0, after getting down at the half by 30-0.  
    Campbell was using its superior size and speed to take advantage of the young Colts early in the game.

  • Playoff determines Cynthiana...

    The Cynthiana Country Club Member/Member Tournament sponsored by Bank Trust went to a playoff before the team of Jim Fuller and Gary Philpott were able to grab the championship.  
    In an unusual development, Philpott was unable to return for the playoff and Fuller took on the duo of Gary Varner and Bob Whitaker for the title.  
    All involved shot par on the first hole before Fuller birdied the second to win the match.  

  • Stay in your car

    Personal responsibility and the need for it was never more apparent than a few weeks ago in Canandaigua, New York, when NASCAR star driver Tony Stewart hit and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race on a dirt track.  
    What led up to the accident and the accident itself has been widely talked about. There has been wild speculation sometimes out weighing the facts from the tragic accident.  
    What is almost certain is that Stewart’s car hit the back of Ward’s sending it into the barrier knocking the youthful driver out of the race.

  • Sports beat

    Fillies end 16 strokes better than Bourbon County
    The Harrison County Fillies only had three players available for Monday’s match with the Bourbon County Lady Colonels, but that was enough. The girls rolled to a 160-to-176 win at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    Sarah Holland led the way with a nine-hole total of 46 with Sarah Durbin following with 52 and Morgan Nelly with 62. The rain-soaked course did not allow for much roll on drives, which elevated the scores on the drizzling afternoon.
