    The Lady Camels of Campbell County continued the defense of their 10th Region Soccer title Wednesday as they defeated the Harrison County Fillies 7-0 in Claryville.
    The Fillies finished the season with a 10-7 record as Coach Kevin Gaunce’s squad faced a tough schedule in 2015.  
    The Fillies battled the Lady Camels on an even basis for the first part of the match, with Campbell County scoring its first goal on a corner kick after six minutes had been played.

  • Has HCHS football turned the corner?

    Friday night in Bourbon County, the Breds and Colonels played one of the most exciting high school games I can remember.
    The Thorobreds overcame the third largest deficit in school history to come back and win 43-36. The Colonels led by 15 points in the second period before the Breds came back to win.
    Last year this game was 49-0 on the Athletic Complex field, which was a really huge disappointment for all concerned on the Harrison County side of the ledger.
    So what has changed?

  • Indian summer unfolding this autumn?

    I heard the weather forecaster mention the chance of an Indian summer last week and it got me thinking about this old print my father had hanging in his office.
