  • Chasteen, Thorobreds shut down Mustangs 6-1 Tuesday

    Senior hurler Christian Chasteen allowed only four hits and one run Tuesday evening on the Hilltop as the Thorobreds went to 10-2 for the year with a 6-1 win over Bishop Brossart. 

    The Mustangs began the day with a fine 11-2 season record and are among the teams thought to be a challenger for the region crown this year. 

    They were able to jump out on top as they plated their only run in the second as three singles sandwiched around a fielder’s choice sent third baseman Anthony Steffen in to score.  

  • Fillies win two of three at Laker Classic

    The Harrison County Fillies traveled on Thursday of spring break to play in the Laker Classic held at Russell County. The Fillies played two games on Friday to determine the seeds for Saturday’s single elimination tournament. 

    In the first game, Cumberland County’s Lady Panthers came in with a 3-3 record and a potent offense. Harrison County showed a little rust from the five-day lay off struggling defensively while Cumberland County was hitting as advertised.

  • The many faces of Elder Abuse

    To the editor:

    As America’s population grows older, we will witness an increase in a very unpleasant development that too often accompanies ageing. It’s called Elder Abuse. It can be perpetrated by caregivers, friends, family, and strangers. It can happen in aged care facilities, in the family home - wherever the aged victim may be - and it manifests itself in a variety of ways.

    Physical abuse consists of misuse of physical force which can result in bodily injury. Slapping, hitting, shaking, kicking, and excessive restraint are examples of this kind of abuse.

  • Breds undefeated as they head to Vegas

    The Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team won three more times last week to take its season record to 7-0 defeating Paris and Scott High on the road and Nicholas County on the Hilltop.

    Wednesday at Paris Ryan Durbin and Mason Fowler combined to allow only three hits in the abbreviated 10-run rule game. Fowler also homered in his one at-bat, and Eric Sanders tripled and drove in four runs to lead the Thorobreds attack. 

  • Opening day for the Reds and the new track

    In order of occurrence, I really enjoyed the inaugural track meet at the new track at the high school. 

    The pure joy from the Harrison County coaches that came from being the envy of the coaching community was great to see. Especially after years of having to travel to compete in top meets, the athletes and the coaching staff deserve to have this facility.  

    I thought that the meet was well run with a couple of exceptions, which I will not list because I know that the athletic department is also aware of them and is working for solutions.
