  • Breds open season with a pair of wins

    Questions abound about the 2009 edition of the Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team. Will they be able to score runs? Will they be able to find an ace starting pitcher to replace Brandon Martin? Will their defense hold up?

    After the first two games of the regular season on Monday and Tuesday of this week, the answers are yes, yes and yes.

    Harrison County, ranked eighth in the state in the coaches’ pre-season poll, routed host Owen County on Monday, 18-0, then came back on Tuesday with a less-than-inspired 5-1 home opening win over Deming.

    The Harrison County Fillies got their softball season off on a winning note on Monday as they defeated visiting Campbell County in five innings, 10-0.

    It took Harrison County an inning or two to get their bats rolling, but when they did, it didn’t take long for them to make quick work of the Camels.

    Lorraine Dennie keyed a big second inning for Harrison County with a bases-loaded, bases-clearing double to stake Harrison County to an early lead.
