  • Fillies pitching coach Philpott retires after long career

    There will be an empty spot in the corner of the Harrison County Fillies dugout next season and a bucket seat missing an occupant. 

    After a total of 15 years of high school softball coaching, most spent as a pitching coach, Gary Philpott has decided that the past year was his last. 

    The 15 years of softball coaching in high school is only the tip of the iceberg as far as Philpott’s coaching career goes.

  • If the conferences all realign, will the NCAA be history?

    Here is my idea for realigning the conferences. 

    There would be four conferences. One for the student athletes, two for kind of middle of the road schools and one for pro’s in waiting.

    First, the student athlete conference.  Some teams are obvious: Vanderbilt, Northwestern and Duke would make up the core of the actual student athlete conference along with Stanford.

  • New track facility something to be proud of on the Hilltop

    We may be bragging too much, but I doubt it. 

    The Harrison County Athletic Complex is just a really good track facility which is a fact, not a boast. 

    I spent the entire regional track meet Saturday in the broiling sun watching some outstanding performances and also watching the reaction of the visiting athletes and coaches.

    * Log Cabin, Feb. 17, 1905 - “‘Tact’ is the subject of a lecture to be given here next Tuesday by Mary Patton Hulton of Cincinnati under the auspices of the Daughters of the Confederacy. The proceeds are to be used to purchase markers for Confederate graves at Battle Grove Cemetery and at Johnson Island. The Shelby News says ‘Tact’ was given by Hulton to a most enthusiastic people. It is a most captivating talk over-running with mirth and luminous with sense.”’

    The onslaught was in full force in the bottom of the second as the Breds scored nine runs on seven hits, two walks and two St. Patrick errors.  Hunter Hill, Matthew Dye each had run-scoring doubles and Josh Moss, Christian Chasteen and Shane Fowler each drove in runs with singles.
