  • Bourbon County runs past Breds...

    “We just could not tackle them,” said Harrison County High school football coach Jim Carr. “They just ran through our tackles, which made for a long night.”
    For the third opponent in a row, the Harrison County Thorobreds’ defense could not keep the other team from scoring on a consistent basis as the Bourbon County Colonels rushed for 253 yards and five touchdowns and threw for three more in a 64-21 rout of the Thorobreds.  

  • Thorobreds fall to Royals Friday...

    “I thought that we were farther along than this,” said a visibly disappointed Harrison County Football Coach Jim Carr. “They ran all over us.”
    Carr’s remarks came after the 41-19 loss to Mason County Friday night in the Athletic Complex before a really good Homecoming crowd that saw Caylin Mattox and Jacob Markley crowned queen and king.  

  • Breds soccer record is 7-3 after...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are busy matching up with region opponents as they prepare for another long run into the post season.  
    Last Thursday night in Falmouth the Breds started with district rival Pendleton County and came away with a 3-0 win.  
    This match was controlled by Harrison County from start to finish which, according to Coach Nick Hill, is the first time this season that the Breds have had such a grip on a battle.  

  • Fillies shutout Paris Lady...

    The Harrison County Fillies bounced back from the heartbreaking defeat last Monday to Bourbon County to defeat Paris 4-0 in Paris Monday night.  
    It took only eight minutes of the game for Harrison County to score the first goal when Taylor Fry won the ball about 20 yards out and beat the Paris defenders to sink the goal in the left corner.  
    This gave the Fillies a lead that they would never surrender.

    Freshmen defense too much for
    Bourbon County
    Despite losing running back Luke Slucher on the first play of the game, the Harrison County freshmen defeated Bourbon County 13-0 Monday night on Lawson Field. Slucher, who was taken from the field via ambulance, returned before the end of the junior varsity game and appears to be ready to play next Monday when the freshmen host Montgomery County in Ingles Stadium.

  • Let’s put Jeff Gordon in the...

    At the risk of receiving another unsigned critical letter by some gutless wonder, I will once again state my opinion of the current state of “fairness” in sports.  
    This time the bosses of NASCAR have changed the rules around in order to keep one of the media darlings involved in the chase.  
    The original set up of the chase was that the top 12 drivers in the standings after the race in Richmond would be the ones that are in the chase.  

  • Fillies volleyball wins close...

    The Harrison County Fillies volleyball team played host to the Bracken County Lady Bears Wednesday evening and came away with a 2-sets-to-1 victory over the tall and talented Bracken County girls.  
    The Harrison County squad used some good passing to take the first set 25-15 and appeared to be on the way to a straight set win.
    Bracken County turned the tables on the Fillies using some clutch hitting from the middle to edge Harrison County 20-25 to force the third set.  

  • HCHS cross country runners show...

    “This is a meet where our athletes like the course,” noted Coach Danny Simpson. “It is fast and rolling and on this cool, dry day, we had our best team performance of the year.”
    For the fourth straight meet the field was crowded with nearly 200 runners in each race so the going was tough in the crowd.  
    According to Simpson, it was like a state meet with the numbers and the talent so it was a good experience for the athletes.
