  • Fillies fall in season opener to Lady Camels

    “We hit the ball hard, but right at them and didn’t get timely hits. We let too many bloop hits fall for them. It is just the first game and while I am not happy, I know the girls can improve and get a lot better.”  
    These were some of Fillies Coach Christine Garnett’s thoughts after Tuesday night’s 7-5 loss at the hands of Campbell County on the Lady Camels’ field.  
    While there were bright spots, too many routine plays got away from the Fillies that make the difference in winning and losing.  

  • Tennis teams split with Pendleton Co. in Tuesday match

  • HCHS tennis teams hopeful to build on last season’s improvement

    The Fillies have three seniors led by their number one singles player Bryson Clifford. Dacci expects Clifford to contend for the regional title and advance to the state tournament.  
    Clifford has been playing during the off season indoors and has honed her game well past last year.  

  • This is no parking lot story, but the best that I could do

    I wanted to comment on the proposed parking lot, but I couldn’t find a way to make it a sports story so here we go with something else.  
    I sometimes forget how fanatical people get at this time of year when the pairings are announced for the NCAA tournament.
    I realize that I have no dogs in the hunt since there are no Indiana schools in the tournament.  
    It would be hard to count the number of times that the good sports of the BBN have let me know this so it would be hard to not know it even if I was in or from Outer Mongolia.  

  • Track runners finish indoor season strong, begin outdoor at Woodford

    The Harrison County boys and girls indoor track season wrapped up with the KTCCCA AA Indoor Track Championships in Mason County with some very good results.  
    It was incorrectly reported that the event was to be held in Louisville as part of the Mason Dixon Games.
    The track in Louisville was condemned and Mason County stepped in and held the state championship meet on March 8, which was the first time in 50-plus years that it was not in Louisville.

  • Baseball Breds begin 2014 with 6-2 win over Grant County Saturday

    Harrison County Coach Mac Whitaker picked up his 988th career win Saturday, but it wasn’t easy as his Thorobreds had to come from two runs down to defeat Grant County, 6-2.
    The game was scoreless through the first three innings as Harrison senior hurler Nolan Brossart and Braves junior hurler Jason Goe were doing a masterful job on the mound.
