  • Track team runs into tough competition at Scott County

    By Mike Aldridge, Sports writer
    The Scott County All Comers had several really good teams and the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds were not sharp on Tuesday, which brought about less than the desired results for the local athletes.  
    “There was some good competition, but we were just not sharp,” remarked Fillies Coach Danny Simpson.
    The Fillies finished fifth of the 10 teams, only 24 points out of first, but were not as intense as the veteran Simpson would have liked.  

  • Little League time is here

    It is the wettest April on record, with storms every day it seems, yet Little League is scheduled to start Saturday.  
    I hope it is able to start because when it does all of the wet weather will just be a memory. We will forget, or at least put in the back of our mind, all of the problems we are having today with the constant bad weather and rain.  
    Little League times remind me of when I was that age and played for the Tell City Chair Company.

    When Dan and Bernadette Bashinski left Cynthiana to go back to Wisconsin, no one could have even imagined the course that this would put their young daughter Sarah on in order to fulfill her destiny.  
    Oldest brother Brian, who is 10 years Sarah’s senior, was a cross country and track athlete for the Thorobreds and Sarah watched his races and greatly admired her brother’s skill and determination.  
    Brian went on to Marquette University, but didn’t compete for the Warriors due to classroom requirements, but still ran for enjoyment.

    Breds swarm Bluejackets 15-0 Thursday in Carlisle
    The Harrison County Thorobreds lit up three Nicholas County pitchers for 16 hits and 15 runs Thursday en route to a 15-0 district win in Carlisle.  
    Coach Mac Whitaker used five pitchers to try to keep everyone as sharp as he can during this rainy part of the schedule.  The Breds were to play three games in Elizabethtown over the weekend and again Monday night at home versus Bracken County. Unfortunately, all of these games were cancelled or postponed due to the weather.
