    The general consensus among the people on the Hilltop Thursday, Friday and Saturday was “We didn’t know how good these teams were.”

  • Baseball, Mother’s Day and hot dogs

    Mother’s Day Weekend was a mixed bag of feelings for me for some reason, especially this year. 

    My mother’s birthday was May 7 so that coupled with Mother’s Day itself made it a little more difficult. Yet, with my wonderful wife and two daughters, who are great mothers in their own right, I was blessed and lucky as I could be. 

    My mother was a great sports fan and was not passive at all about what teams she liked and which ones she didn’t.

  • Track teams find going difficult at Bryan Station Invitational

    The Harrison County High School track teams found going difficult as they competed in the Bryan Station Invitational on Saturday. 

    It had been an unusually difficult week of preparation as the Woodford County meet having been called off and school being out two days kept regular practice at a minimum. 

    Add the cold temperatures and high winds of Saturday to the mix and conditions were less than favorable for the Fillies and Thorobreds competitors. But compete they did... a finishing in eighth place in the girls and 10th in the boys of the 17-team field.
