  • Breds stay perfect with two close wins last week

    The Harrison County baseball Breds won two games last week as the weather continued to put a damper on the season.  
    Harrison County shutout Montgomery County 2-0 on Friday and then came back on Saturday to win an extra-inning game at Lewis County 2-1.  
    The Owen County game scheduled for Monday, the Bellevue game scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday’s game with Mason County will all have to be rescheduled if they are to be played as the weather was just too lousy to play the games.

  • Wind, cold and competition make tough day for track team at Western Hills

    Saturday’s Wolverine Open was the epitome of an all comers track meet because the good ones all came to run in it.  
    Well, maybe not all of the good ones, but a good enough representation that Coaches Danny Simpson and Robert Walker said the competition was like the state meet.  
    “The 16-team field was as large and as tough as the state meet,” said Simpson. “We were able to get more athletes involved today, and it was a good experience for them.”

  • Fillies begin year with three straight wins, play Bracken Thursday

    The Harrison County Fillies, sporting a preseason state ranking of  No. 25, began the season last week with three victories over familiar opponents.  
    Tuesday night Harrison County used a four-run second-inning, and a three-run fifth to put the game away against the Lady Braves of Grant County.  
    Grant County (0-3) scored in the first inning to take a 1-0 lead, but Harrison County tied it in the bottom half at 1-1.  

  • It is too cold in Minnesota anyway

    I have the greatest respect for 3M and what that company means to Cynthiana.  
    With that stated, what in the heck is wrong with the University of Minnesota?  
    Quick, name me one basketball player that played there.   Couldn’t do it could you?  
    The best known basketball player from the Minneapolis school other than Kevin McHale is probably Dave Winfield and he played pro baseball.
