  • Harrison wrestlers return strong...

    Frank Sinatra sang the song “High Hopes” in 1959 but Old Blue Eyes didn’t have anything on Harrison County wrestling Coach Luke Tucker.  
    The veteran coach and his assistants have a returning group that includes 10 state qualifiers from 2013-14 and a couple of newcomers that could make the Thorobreds a regional contender in every weight class.
    Last year the Thorobreds finished third in the region behind Johnson Central and Montgomery County.  The goal for the Breds is to pass these two and become region champs in 2014-15.

  • Campbell County eliminates...

    Regional favorite and eventual 10th Region Champion Campbell County defeated the youthful Harrison County Fillies Wednesday evening.  
    The semi-final round of the tournament that was held in Winchester saw both Campbell County and Bishop Brossart advance over Harrison County and George Rogers Clark for an all 37th District final.  
    Campbell County then repeated as the 37th District winner by defeating Brossart 2-1 in the 10th Region finals.

  • Harrison County hosts annual...

    The Harrison County High School and Middle School cross country teams were the hosts of the annual Harrison County Invitational Meet last Thursday.  
    The meet, which was held at the Cynthiana Country Club, featured teams from Pendleton County, Grant County, Lexington Christian, Owen County, Nicholas County and Bourbon County.
    The Harrison County Middle school teams had enough runners to compete for the team trophies finishing third in the girls’ competition and second in the boys’.  

  • Life is short, then you’re gone

    St. Louis Cardinal outfielder Oscar Taveras’ death Sunday made me think about how quickly a person can go from upright to six feet under.  
    Here was a 22-year-young man with an extremely promising future and everything to live for losing his life in a car accident along with his 18-year-old girlfriend. What a shame.  
    This was a terrible accident but as callous as it sounds “accidents happen.”  

  • Springboks Fall season U12 Girls...
  • Sports beat

    Friday is Senior Night for HCHS football

    Tailgating will begin at 6 p.m., outside the entrance gate. It will be sponsored by Dr. Rick Arnold with Randolph Thomas and Matt Moore cooking hot dogs, steaks and other great eats.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Thorobreds fall to Colonels...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds offense once again fizzled to a stop gaining only five total yards Saturday afternoon in a 56-0 loss to the Covington Catholic Colonels.  
    The big Colonel defensive line dominated the youthful Thorobreds making running and passing difficult all afternoon.  
    Penalties were also an issue as the Thorobreds were flagged for 81 yards on nine infractions.  
    Covington Catholic scored on their first possession after the Breds picked up one first down and punted the ball away in the game’s opening series.  

  • Springboks U-10 soccer teams...

    The Springboks had two Under-10 girls soccer teams travel to Beaver Creek, Ohio, last weekend to take part in the BSA Haunted Classic Soccer Tournament.  
    The tournament had 336 girls’ teams, ages 8 to 14, and included teams from Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan and Indiana.  
    The Springboks white team, which had four Harrison County players along with two from Bourbon County and two from Scott County, finished second in their division.  

  • Soccer Breds grab 38th District...

    The weather tried to prevent it, but eventually the Harrison County Thorobreds won the 38th District Soccer Championship defeating Pendleton County, 3-2, Saturday afternoon in Falmouth.  
    The Breds defeated Mason County, 7-0, in Thursday’s first match of the district tournament sending the Royals home with a season-ending mark of 0-14.  
    The field was sloppy but not the quagmire that would have been if the match had been played on Tuesday as originally scheduled.
