  • The royal wedding went fine without us, let’s focus on a local level

    I feel the need to remind everyone that even though there is tons of breaking national news currently being talked about, we still need to remember local news as well.
    When I was in college, I took a class called Community Leadership Development 320, better known to the students as “What’s in the news.”
    The class was taught by the very enthusiastic Dr. Randy Weckman, who by my understanding, might be the No. 1 person to call when you want to know what is going on around the world.

    The State Champions from 1997 and 1998 will be honored Friday night before and during the Thorobreds game with Fleming County on the Hilltop.

  • Fillies’ struggles continue, Garnett sees improvement

    The Harrison County Fillies played some of the better competition they have seen this year in the past week and came away with one win in three tries.  
    Fleming County, with a 9-4 record and Rowan County, who is currently 15-5, provided some stiff competition giving Coach Christine Garnett a better idea as to what her team needs to do before the district begins.
    The Fillies played host to the Lady Panthers of Fleming County on Thursday, April 28.  The visitors jumped out for nine runs in the top of the first and the Fillies could never recover.  

  • Harrison track team in Dunbar meet Saturday

    Weather continues to be a factor for the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track teams as they prepare for the upcoming region meets.  
    The number of meets and practices that the athletes have been able to compete in have seriously hampered the ability to prepare for the type of competition in this region.  Added to this, on Saturday there were illness, injury and academic obligations which had a skeleton crew going to Dunbar.
    The Fillies did quite well despite the lack of depth they usually have and finished fifth.

    Friday will be an evening of excitement on the Hilltop as the 1997 and 1998 champions return for a special night.  Wouldn’t it be nice if the school would name the Whitaker Park, Herrington Field and Snopek Press Box that night?   
    Buddy Renaker has been working on the special night and believes 75 percent of the players, stat people and coaches will be there along with their families and others.
