  • Breds third in Mike Murphy...

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    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.

  • Both bowling teams 2nd in...

    West Jessamine edged both the Fillies and Thorobreds bowling teams to win the six-team tournament held in Danville last Saturday.  
    The tournament was sponsored by the Boyle County Rebel teams, who also competed with two teams.  
    The other participants along with Harrison County,  West Jessamine and Boyle County were Montgomery County and East Jessamine.  
    The Fillies averaged 167 per game, which is very good as their total pin count was 3,665 for the 22 baker games.  

  • Christmas gifts for NFL teams

    After a Sunday afternoon of shopping with my four grandsons I am really in the Christmas spirit. So much so that for the next two weeks I will be making Christmas wishes for the NFL and College football and basketball teams.
    Many teams are in need of a healthy quarterback while a few have had some good play from back ups most have not which makes the wish list quarterback heavy.
    Strangely enough one of the injured quarterbacks whose back up played the best was Chicago’s Jay Cutler who hails from Santa Claus, Ind.

    Rumble on the Hilltop rescheduled for Monday
    The Harrison County wrestling team’s major home meet, The Rumble on the Hilltop, has been rescheduled for Monday, Dec. 23.

  • Wrestlers win 2 of 5 in Dual...

    The Harrison County wrestling team, under the direction of Coach Luke Tucker, traveled to Paintsville Saturday to take part in the Johnson Central Dual Meet.  
    The Thorobreds battled Belfry, Montgomery County, East Ridge, Lee, Va, and the host Golden Eagles.  
    The Thorobreds defeated Belfry, 48-16, and East Ridge, 69-30, but fell to Montgomery County, 30-43, Lee, Va., 25-54, and the host Johnson Central squad, 18-63.  

  • Injury leads to 7th place for...

    For the first time the state cheerleading competition was held at the Alltech Center at the Kentucky Horse Park.
    The Harrison County cheerleaders competed in the small division and had things pretty much lining up for them as they prepared for their turn on the mat.  
    They had a great warm up and were prepared to take advantage of the fact that most teams that had already performed had fallen, leaving the door wide open for another Harrison County win.
    Coach Jessica Reynolds was excited as she watched the performance unfold.

  • Fillies roll past Williamstown,...

    Harrison County’ Fillies took what was a 10-point halftime lead to an easy 25-point (60-35) win Wednesday night over the Williamstown Lady Demons in their only home game of the season to date.
    The Fillies rolled out to a 13-4 advantage early before Williamstown changed to a 1-2-2 zone, which caused the Harrison County girls to become tentative.
