  • Breds end streak, rout St. Henry 11-1 in five innings

    A two-game losing streak isn’t much for many teams, but it seems much longer to the Harrison County High School baseball program.  
    Add to the scenario that the steak came after six straight wins on the road and it is even more unlikely.
    That is all in the past now as the Thorobreds got back on track Tuesday night beating St. Henry’s Crusaders 11-1 in five innings.
    The game started poorly for the Breds as starting pitcher Justin Nutter was wild in the beginning walking the first two batters and throwing a wild pitch.  

  • Breds edge Scott High in eight innings, drop two at home

    The Breds dropped a 12-9 decision to Covington Holy Cross on Friday and then returned to the diamond Saturday to lose to Grant County, 7-4.

  • Fillies ice the Lady Bears in six Tuesday

    It was an 11-1 night on the Hilltop as the Harrison County Fillies joined the Breds in defeating their opponent 11-1 in varsity action.  
    The Fillies defeated Bracken County at Shirley Field in a game that was very similar to the action taking place on the adjacent baseball diamond.
    Bracken County scored in the top of the first off starter Tracey Hicks to take an early 1-0 lead. Hicks and Jami Davis combined for the next five innings to shut the Lady Bears offense down.  

  • Mike’s Minute

    Congratulations to the Kentucky Wildcats on the eighth national championship.  
    The young men spent their year in Lexington wisely, working hard and blending with a couple of more veteran players to make a really good team.   
    They deserve the accolades that are coming their way and will for the most part reap huge rewards when they go on to the next step in their professional career.
    How about the National Anthem before the championship game? I don’t think it was the worst rendition I have ever heard, but it is in the top three.

  • Thorobreds third, Fillies fourth in Montgomery meet

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Harrison County track team continued to find success in the early meets this spring as both the Fillies and Thorobreds finished near the top in the Montgomery County Invitational Track Meet.  
    The 12-team field was made up of AAA, AA and A teams with only the AAA teams besting the Harrison County athletes.  
    The Fillies’ fourth place finish was behind Henry Clay, Woodford County and Bryan Station in this meet as Henry Clay won the meet by only three points over Woodford County.

  • House, senate supports spending plan

    When the General Assembly began the 2012 Regular Session in January, there was little doubt what its biggest challenge would be: writing a two-year budget that could continue meeting the state’s critical needs in light of previous cuts totaling more than a billion dollars.
    On Friday evening, after weeks of discussion and several late nights working on a compromise, the House and Senate put its support behind a spending plan that will go a long way to achieving that goal.
