Noticeable development may be in store for Flat Run Veterans’ Park in the near future.
Cynthiana Harrison County Parks and Recreation director Brad Steele made his way to Frankfort Tuesday, April 30, to submit two grants that could generate approximately $180,000 to be used at Flat Run Veterans’ Park.
When your team outhits the opponent 13 to eight and your power hitter hits two home runs the chances of winning should be pretty good.
However, when your team makes nine errors in eight innings your fortunes probably won’t be as good.
That was the case Tuesday night for the Fillies as they traveled to Montgomery County and dropped a 7-6 verdict in eight innings.
The Harrison County Fillies won four times this weekend en route to the championship of the McDonald’s/Thorobred Sportswear Tournament. Williamstown, Taylor County, Somerset, and the Lady Royals of Mason County were the worthy opponents of the Fillies and each came up on the short end of the score.
The tournament featured teams from four regions as the Grant County Lady Braves were also involved in the round robin style tournament.
The Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team posted a modest three-game winning streak until the championship game of the Harrison Memorial Hospital/McDonalds Classic where they dropped a game that was very winnable to East Jessamine.
After defeating Bourbon County last Monday the Breds were rained out of the scheduled doubleheader with Robertson County on Wednesday so they were idle until they opened the Classic facing Madison Southern on Thursday evening.
Coach Jim Carr has been pleased with many aspects of this year’s spring football at Harrison County High School.
Spring football is governed by the KHSAA as to length of practices and also how long the practices can be held during the off season.
The practices allowed are 10 two-hour practices which must be held over a 15-day period.
Middle schools may also hold practice but the athletes who are still in the eighth grade, though they will be freshmen next year, may not compete with the high school students.
I haven’t had a high opinion of the New York Jets really since Joe Willie Namath, but especially with Buddy Ryan’s son Rex as the head coach.
Buddy was a blow hard and a loud mouth but he had a sense of humor about him and wasn’t real vulgar.
Rex, on the other hand, has shot his mouth off, swore at every occasion and has put his foot in his mouth so many times he has athlete’s lips.
