  • Spring game close as Maroon edges White

    The maroon players defeated the white squad in an evenly matched scrimmage, 21-14, in the Harrison County High School spring game Thursday evening.  
    The game, played on Lawson Field in Ingles Stadium, was the first for the Neil Furnish Thorobreds on the Hilltop.  The game featured two 20-minute halves played with a running clock with 40 players dressed for the occasion.  
    The baseball players who also play football along with a couple of track athletes and a few injured players did not participate in the scrimmage.

  • Football back behind the scene for a while

    The Spring Football Game and the NFL draft brought football off of the back page and back to the front for a couple of weeks.  
    The draft takes four days and is more highly watched and discussed than the NBA playoffs and regular season baseball though the “real” games aren’t for another few months.  
    Having UK’s Bud Dupree go to the Steelers was very pleasing to me as a Steelers fan.  Dupree has what it takes to be a really good defensive player in Pittsburgh and the Steelers style of play fits him very well.

  • Tennis region wraps up season for Harrison County

  • Harrison County wins two of three in Owensboro tournament

    South Spencer Lady Rebels of Rockport, Indiana, beat the Fillies 10-0 in five innings Friday night, but the Fillies rebounded to beat two Kentucky teams for a successful trip to the Owensboro Catholic Tournament.
    The Fillies had just arrived on site and were forced to play without a chance to warm up, which contributed to South Spencer scoring four runs in the first and two in the second.  
    Harrison County was only able to muster two hits while the Lady Rebels, who were playing their second game of the day, smashed out 13 hits to score their 10 runs.
