    The Harrison County High School wrestling team gets its season underway this Saturday competing in the North Oldham Duals in Oldham County. Harrison County will compete against the hosts, along with four teams out of Louisville–Jeffersontown, Iroquois, Manual and Fairdale.

  • Breds drop opener at Grant

    Long-range marksmanship by host Grant County doomed Harrison County on Tuesday night in the regular season opener for both boys varsity teams.

    Cody Kinman came off the bench for the Braves and torched the Thorobreds for five three-pointers as Grant County out-shot Harrison County from beyond the three-point arc 8-1, on their way to a 65-56 win.

  • Early mistakes doom Thorobreds

    Harrison County Coach Aaron Stepp knew that his team would have to play a nearly perfect game in order to beat Lexington Catholic in the second round of the AAAA football playoffs last Friday night.

    He knew that his team would need to control the ball offensively, run time off the clock, score on nearly every possession and keep the potent Knights’ offense off the field.

    His team could not afford to turn the ball over and could not afford to give the Knights any help with penalties.

  • Maroon and White Madness this...

    Harrison County High School’s winter sports teams will be unveiled to the public this coming Tuesday night on the Hilltop as Maroon and White Madness has been revived after a multi-year hiatus.

  • Breds host Knights in possible...

    For only the second time in school history, the Harrison County Thorobreds have won playoff games in back-to-back years.


    Last year, the Breds won three straight playoff games before losing in the Class AAAA semi-final round to eventual state champion Lexington Catholic.


    Last week, Harrison County upended West Jessamine 42-13 to earn a chance to play LexCath again.


  • Breds run past Colts in playoff...

    Two weeks ago, the Harrison County Thorobreds were shocked in their regular season finale by  West Jessamine 26-23, in a game that most had chalked up as a sure win.

    Most people, but not Harrison County coach Aaron Stepp.

    “I knew that West Jessamine was good enough to beat us then, but our players didn’t believe it,” said Stepp this past Monday. “They learned the hard way that the coaches were right and were bound and determined not to let it happen again.”

    ….And how.

  • Youth basketball gets underway...

    Fifteen different youth basketball teams will descend on the Hilltop this weekend as the hardwood season gets underway.

    Sponsored by the Cynthiana/Harrison County Youth Basketball Association, this weekend’s tournament will feature 15 teams in four different age groups from Harrison County, Paris, Scott County, Bracken County, Mason County and Lexington.

    All three Hilltop gymnasiums will be utilized on Saturday for pool play games, with single elimination tournaments being held on Sunday.

  • Plans underway for Antioch...

    Soon the turkey bones will be discarded and the Christmas decorations will be taken down on at least most homes and the Antioch Upward season for 2009 will be starting.

    The first practices start the week of Monday, Jan. 5 with leagues from kindergarten/first grade through fourth/sixth grade.
