  • Fillies soccer welcomes eight returning starters to make a run at region

    Harrison County Fillies soccer coach Kim Jenkins won’t need any help identifying her players as they begin practice for the 2013 soccer season.  
    She has seven seniors and eight returning starters from last season’s 11-5-5 team.  
    The seven seniors returning are Elizabeth Brooks, Haley Carr, Madison Dixon, Taylor Fry, Jaclyn Fryman, Marly Jenkins and Madelyn Judy.  Add returning goal keeper Chelsea Ingram and the Fillies have speed and veteran leadership plus a stingy goal keeper to keep hopes high for a grand season.

  • HCHS and HCMS to begin football practice Monday

    Dr. Chris Kerns greeted more than 25 middle school players and Coach Jim Carr close to 55 high school players for the first official day of football practice for 2013.
    The numbers will be greater for both once the Toyota shutdown is over and also when baseball players can report following summer ball.
    Coach Kerns was excited with the attitudes of his young players.  

  • Golf teams working hard to gain needed experience

    Both the Thorobreds and Fillies golf teams have a list of returning players for Coach Jason Crisp’s sixth year at the helm of the Harrison County program.  
    Each team lost one player from last year, Kristin Aubrey for the Fillies and Daniel Klapheke for the Thorobreds.  
    Both teams will miss the contributions that the departed players made, but each also has several veterans to take the reins.

  • Royalty takes Karl Jones Memorial 100 for Corbin Speedway Late Model Series

    Brian Royalty of Cynthiana led all but one lap of the Karl Jones Memorial 100 for the Corbin Speedway Late Model Series on Saturday evening, July 13, but that doesn’t mean that his victory came easy.
    For the first 11 laps, he had to hold off Jason Jones of London in a side-by-side battle for the lead, and that pattern was repeated after each double-file restart following four caution periods.

  • Indecision and poor decisions

    In this week of the Major League All Star game and around the beginning of fall sports for Harrison County High School, I am going to have one final say about the Recreation Department and the Little League season since baseball is all that has been played this year for the most part.  
    First, on Monday the decision was made to not finish the make up games and also to not have a season-ending tournament.  
    This I expect was made because of the number of people on vacation since the season generally would be long over.
