  • Fillies win soccer Senior Night battle with Frankfort 4-0

    Six seniors took the field Monday night on Senior Night at LeBus Field and were awarded by a sound thumping of Frankfort 4-0.  
    Seniors Mary Kate Davis, Katlynn Horschler, Natasha Ingram, Sara Jenkins, Andrea Livingood and Nikki Taylor were each recognized during the Senior Night ceremonies.  
    The game was a sound performance by the Fillies. While they scored four goals, they had many shots on goal that could have made the score much more lopsided.  

  • A wrap up to baseball 2011

    I was listening to Cincinnati radio Sunday morning after church and heard what was sort of an ominous remark concerning the Reds’ season, which made me think to write this.
    The program host noted that after last night (Saturday) the Reds were guaranteed a losing season for 2011.   
    When one considers the talent on the Reds, it seems hard to believe that they finished with a less than winning season. This had me thinking maybe I would consider each position and compare the player in Cincinnati to the rest of the National League.

  • Volleyball Fillies net win No. 20 in Senior Night defeat of Clark County

    After beating Deming, who has one of the better records in the region, in straight sets last Thursday, the Harrison County Fillies had a big task in front of them Tuesday night on the Hilltop.  
    The George Rogers Clark Lady Cards came into Cynthiana with a modest 12-11 record earned during an early-season tough schedule. The Fillies had the additional pressure of Senior Night, which while a great night can distract a team from the job at hand.

  • Harrison’s Cross Country team ran fast times on Berea course

    In true cross country style, the Berea course has a creek for the runners to run through as they travel the assigned route for the 5000 meter race.  
    This usually causes wet and slippery conditions and slower times, but the Harrison County team had some good times on Saturday.

  • “The little brown church in the vale”

    It is difficult to think of personal things to write about in a column for a newspaper if you really think about it.
    I try every once in a while to have a more personal story, especially from my childhood, for some of the readers to try and relate to and other times I pick a topic in the community and just spill out my thoughts.
