  • Tennis squads lose at Montgomery Co., sweep Bracken

    The weather cooperated enough last week for the Harrison County tennis teams to play two matches with far different results.
     The Bracken County Polar Bears and Montgomery County Indians were the opponents for Coach Kara Mattox’s netters.
    The Polar Bears were no match for the Harrison County teams as the visiting Breds and Fillies swept to 5-0 victories.  
    The Fillies had a little more trouble than the Thorobreds as they had a couple of close matches before pulling out the wins.

  • Thorobreds win fourth in a row at Montgomery meet

    On what was probably the best weather day of the year, the Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies performed very well in the Montgomery County Invitational Meet.  
    The meet was held on Thursday, April 7, at the Indians’ beautiful new track facility.  
    The Fillies were led by the field events and hurdles as has been the case all season.  Natasha Ingram was a double winner taking the shot put and the discus, freshman Haley Carr won the 100M hurdles and Catherine Darnell leaped 29-feet-8½ inches to win the triple jump.

  • Baseball press box, fun and professional

    I think for this week at least I will be less serious and try not to upset anyone with my column.  
    Hate mail is never any fun even if one expects to get it.   
    I will risk mentioning my high school alma mater though only because it leads into my thought for the day.  
    Last week I attended a high school baseball game in Tell City when I was traveling on business.  
    There were a couple of sharp contrasts between the game there and the games on the Hilltop, which I attend whenever I can to cover the Thorobreds.
