    The bus ride home from Walton-Verona on Tuesday night was a happy one for the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team.

    The Bearcats scored the lone goal in the first half to take a 1-0 lead to intermission.

    Ten minutes into the second half, Jonathan Noble scored a goal to knot the score, then 5 minutes later Kaleb Mattox gave the Breds the lead.

  • Harrison County girls forge...

  • Breds outlast Newport, 20-14

    Anytime you can go into the lion’s den of Northern Kentucky football and come home with a win, a notch can be placed on your belt.

    Coach Mark Carroll and his Harrison County High School football team can break out the leather tools and start notching, after the Thorobreds overcame turnovers and turned back home-standing Newport on Friday night 20-14.

  • On a roll

    Since losing to Scott County in the finals of the Scott County Invitational last weekend, the Harrison County Fillies soccer team has been gathering momentum, heading down the stretch of the regular season.

    Last Wednesday, the Fillies notched their biggest win of the season as they dumped perennial regional contender Clark County at LeBus Field, 4-1.

    Harrison County never trailed in the contest and allowed only a penalty kick goal to the Lady Cards that spoiled the shutout.

  • Whalen second at Grant Co....

    Harrison County senior golfer Polly Whalen appears to have her game rounding into form at just the right time.  With the regional tournament just three weeks away, Whalen had another solid finish last weekend in a one-day tournament.

    Whalen carded a 78 on Saturday at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Crittenden, good enough for a second place finish in the 65-player field in the Grant County Classic.

Young, a red-shirt freshman, played for the Toppers in their 63-7 loss to the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville.

    The Harrison County cross country teams traveled to Asbury College for the AJ Special last Thursday, with both teams coming away with improved performances.

    “It was a big, tough invitational, but we ran very well,” said HCHS coach Danny Simpson. “I had challenged our athletes to improve their times from the Pendleton County Meet. They did that and more with most of our runners improving 2-3 minutes over their previous meet.”
