  • Breds rout Garrard Co. 10-5, E. Jessamine 11-0 to begin season

    Harrison County began the baseball season on the road Saturday and came home with a 10-5 win over Garrard County.  
    The Thorobreds’ bats rocked the Lions’ pitching for 11 hits, including four home runs scored in the first five innings to cage the Lions.  
    Starting Thorobreds’ pitcher Jordan Martin began the hit parade with a two-run home run in the top of the first, scoring Zach Royce who had walked ahead of him.

  • Harrison County track teams begin season with a win for the boys, fifth for Fillies

    The Woodford County All Comers Meet last Saturday was the earliest meet Fillies Track Coach Danny Simpson can remember competing in for as long as he has been coaching at Harrison County.  The results for the early entry were good to very good for the two squads as the Fillies were fifth of 11 teams and the Thorobreds won the 12-team boys’ competition.  
    Coach Robert Walker was high on his team’s performance especially considering the points the new track athletes scored and the work his whole group put forth.  

  • NCAA working down to select few

    Only one short Sunday ago there were 68 teams with the big dream of cutting down the nets in New Orleans on April 2.  
    Only 16 remain with many of the favorites being pushed aside by “much lesser” opposition.  
    I for one did not shout with glee when Duke lost to Lehigh or when Missouri was bested by Norfolk State. It is good for the under dogs to win now and then to keep them full of hope at the possibility of that one shining moment, so it doesn’t upset me when it happens.
