  • Wrestlers win Rumble, finish...

    Harrison County’s wrestlers won the eight-team Rumble on the Hilltop last Monday at the Harrison County Middle School edging Bourbon County and Campbell County.
    The Thorobreds scored 57 points to the Colonels’ 51 and the Camels’ 50 in a make up of the tournament originally schedule for Dec. 7.  
    The Thorobreds won only three of the 13 classes and took second in four. The 170-lb. Mason Fryman, 182-lb. Clay Arthur, and 220-lb. Kellon Williams won their weight classes.

  • Fillies beat Rowan County, lose...

    The Harrison County Fillies were a little slow out of the gate but regrouped and won a hard-fought nail biter Friday over Rowan County, 55-52, in their first game in the Bourbon County Holiday Classic.  
    In a poorly played first half, the lethargic Fillies found themselves trailing 23-13 when sophomore Madison Philpot scored six of eight Fillies’ points to close the gap to two points.

  • Fillies drop 2 more at Republic...

    On Sunday and Monday at the Republic Bank Classic, the Harrison County Fillies continued to struggle with their ball handling, especially against the Mason County Lady Royals on Sunday.
    After a 29-turnover performance against a very talented Simon Kenton team on Saturday, the Fillies came back to commit 28 versus the Lady Royals.
    The turnovers resulted in 27 points for the Mason County squad en route to their 64 to 43 defeat of the Fillies.

  • Breds lose two of three in...

    If close counted for anything in basketball the Harrison County Thorobreds would have a stellar record. While winning one of three in the Republic Bank Classic held at Lexington Catholic, which began last Thursday Harrison County was close to winning each game but only pulled out the Clinton County match up.

  • Holiday tournaments; Let’s have...

    The Fillies and Thorobreds have each played in two holiday tournaments this Christmas season, which is great competition and also a good experience for the players. No matter the wins and losses it is something that they (the players) will remember for a long time.
    The girls traveled to Lexington for the first tournament and to Paris for the second while the boys went to Maysville and Lexington.

    Despite giving up 24 points due to not having a wrestler in four weight classes, the Harrison County Thorobreds finished sixth of 16 teams at Louisville Central Saturday.  
    “We did well considering we gave up the four classes,” said Coach Luke Tucker. “That spots the others points that we have to overcome.”  
    Tucker was especially happy with the efforts of Michael Mattox, Chase Highlander, Nathan Lopez, Clay Arthur, Kellon Williams, and Dominic Walker.  

  • Fillies split two games in...

    Some years, beating Augusta High School in basketball wasn’t such a big deal, but lately, under Coach Jason Hinson, the Panthers are a force to be reckoned with in 10th Region basketball.  
    That fact makes the Harrison County Thorobreds’ 75-68 win over Augusta Saturday night in the third place game of the Mike Murphy Classic even more important.  
    The way the Thorobreds accomplished the feat was also important as they played more as a team with a 32-minute effort.
