  • Cross country competes in two...

    Last Monday, the Harrison County High School and Middle School cross country teams ran at Pendleton County in a four-team meet.  
    The meet consisted of Augusta, Nicholas County, the host Pendleton County and Harrison County.  
    Pendleton County won the boys’ and girls’ high school meets while Harrison County’s Middle School boys won the middle school meet.  
    The girls finished in 13, Abby Cooper; 15, Tamara Lunsford; and 19, Chelsea Bowman in the 21-runner meet.  

  • I might worry too much

    I wanted to write about the golf weekend at Perry Park, but I learned that just as with Las Vegas, what happens at Perry Park stays at Perry Park.  
    Let me just say that I was disappointed in how visitors to the three golf courses take care of the course.  
    It concerns me that Americans have gotten so lazy that they cannot pick up after themselves, but I guess looking at the sides of the road in Harrison County I should not be surprised.

  • Fillies win first set, lose...

    Coach Bill Faulkner noted before the season started that his scheduling was a little off when he scheduled Lexington Christian, Villa Madonna and Campbell County for three straight matches beginning with the Lady Eagles last Tuesday.  
    However, his young Fillies volleyball squad put a scare into the Blue Lightning of Villa Madonna Thursday when they rolled to a 25-20 win in the first set.  
    The Fillies did this though they did not serve particularly well during the set.  

  • Thorobreds drop home opener and...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team dropped to 0-3-1 last week as they lost twice to the Cardinals.  
    Tuesday night’s home opener with the George Rogers Clark Cardinals started well as Logan Wiley’s goal with about 10 minutes played put the Thorobreds on top 1-nil.  
    George Rogers Clark, with some physical play, scored twice before the half for a 2-1 lead after the first 40 minutes.  
    It took only 49 seconds into the second half for Wiley to put his second goal into the net with an assist from Brock Jenkins.  

  • Fillies drop soccer match to...

    Bishop Brossart’s Lady Mustangs showed that they are ready to defend the 10th Region title as they rolled by the Harrison County Fillies 8-0 Wednesday in northern Kentucky.  
    The Fillies were unprepared at first due to a schedule change which moved the varsity game ahead of the junior varsity due to Brossart’s field not having lights.  
    Harrison County’s varsity had 20 minutes to get off of the bus, change into their gear and prepare for the match.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Breds tie Bourbon County 2-2 on...

    On a day when a steady down pour made play questionable, the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team visited with Bourbon County to renew the rivalry.  
    On Thursday, there was water standing in puddles, especially on the south end of the field, which ended up as a key factor in the match.  
    The Thorobreds started strong, which pleased Coach Nick Hill.  
    “We did not start well against Campbell County and I was glad to see the focus was there for this night,” he noted.   

  • Golfers continue improvement...

    The Harrison County golf team has been making strides of improvement while dodging the rain that has become so frequent during the early evenings.  
    Beginning with Thursday, Aug. 14, when the Breds defeated Bourbon County, both teams have been on a roll.  
    In that match played on the Cynthiana Country Club course, Reese Asher’s 37 was good enough for medalist and Jake Jones, along with Will Hicks, each shot 38 to propel the Thorobreds.  

  • Fillies tie Anderson County 1-1...

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled to Lawrenceburg last Wednesday night and after a 45-minute delay, due to a wet field, did battle with the Lady Bearcats.  
    Both teams were tentative as the field conditions were less than ideal, motivating the players to proceed with caution.
