  • Baseball Breds set sights on another banner year

    Most teams that graduate nine seniors from their baseball squad are deep into a rebuilding season and just hope to compete while the young players gain experience.  
    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost nine seniors, seven of who were pitchers at one time or another from 2011, and are reloading for another season that they hope ends at Whitaker Bank Park.  

  • Who decides where the teams play?

    There is always a lot of talk and questions asked about who makes the field of 68 for the NCAA tournament and what seeds they are, but seldom does anyone address the favoritism shown in where some of the teams play.  
    Fans of No. 1 seeds seem to think that they should have a home court or at least an area court advantage due to the fact that they are, in fact, the No. 1 seed.  
    I can buy that some though I would argue if you are in fact the No. 1 seed the site of the game shouldn’t matter.  

  • HCHS Fillies Softball
  • Fillies track, a mixture of talent for 2012

    Veteran Fillies Track Coach Danny Simpson is a positive thinker and motivator with the Fillies tracksters as they enter the outdoor portion of the 2012 track season.  
    Simpson simply states, “The potential is there to have our best team in years,” when he discusses the 2012 Fillies.  Simpson’s positive attitude is not one of false promise, however, as the Fillies are loaded in many of the events which make up a track meet.  

  • Breds track squad looks to compete at the highest level

    Harrison County Thorobreds Track Coach Robert Walker is not one to talk a bigger game than he can play.  
    Walker generally understates his team’s abilities until they have proven on the track and in the field that they are able to perform to a high level.  
    So, when Robert Walker says the team’s strengths are “everything” one sits up and takes notice.

    * Cynthiana News, June 20, 1867 - “The races last Saturday in Paris were, as we learn from those who were present, very interesting. Quite a crowd was present. In the first race A.J. Hook’s horse beat W.W. Abbott’s horse. In the second race, Mr. Andrews distanced the whole party. In the third race, Wyatt entered a bay mare by Abdallah, and Abbott a bay mare by Abdallah. Abbot’s mare won the first heat.”
