  • 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.

  • Baseball Breds set sights on another banner year

    Most teams that graduate nine seniors from their baseball squad are deep into a rebuilding season and just hope to compete while the young players gain experience.  
    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost nine seniors, seven of who were pitchers at one time or another from 2011, and are reloading for another season that they hope ends at Whitaker Bank Park.  

  • Who decides where the teams play?

    There is always a lot of talk and questions asked about who makes the field of 68 for the NCAA tournament and what seeds they are, but seldom does anyone address the favoritism shown in where some of the teams play.  
    Fans of No. 1 seeds seem to think that they should have a home court or at least an area court advantage due to the fact that they are, in fact, the No. 1 seed.  
    I can buy that some though I would argue if you are in fact the No. 1 seed the site of the game shouldn’t matter.  

  • HCHS Fillies Softball
  • Fillies track, a mixture of talent for 2012

    Veteran Fillies Track Coach Danny Simpson is a positive thinker and motivator with the Fillies tracksters as they enter the outdoor portion of the 2012 track season.  
    Simpson simply states, “The potential is there to have our best team in years,” when he discusses the 2012 Fillies.  Simpson’s positive attitude is not one of false promise, however, as the Fillies are loaded in many of the events which make up a track meet.
