The Harrison County Thorobreds appear to have hit a mid-season batting slump as they totaled only five hits in each of the last three games winning one and losing two.
Last Wednesday, the Breds played host to Paris winning a nip-and-tuck battle 4-3.
The Greyhounds led on two separate occasions before Harrison County rallied in the fifth for two runs and the win.

Reading the information about the five “power” conferences’ decision to pay their scholarship athletes made me think of how it used to be.
This is not to be confused with the current movement to pay players in college, but instead a decision to add to the scholarship benefits.
According to the article I read, other scholarship students who are not on athletic scholarships already receive additional money that they can use as they see fit. This is in addition to room and board, books, fees and supplies.
The Fillies finished third and the Thorobreds sixth in the 10-team Woodford County All Comers Meet on Tuesday, April 14. The meet, which was held on a cool wet day, was shortened due to darkness on the overcast afternoon.
Kassidy Cook led the way for the Fillies winning the 100M hurdles, the high jump and the long jump. She was also second in the triple jump.
Freshman Mersadeez Dietrich was third in the long jump with senior Mia Lail fifth as Harrison County dominated that event.
The Harrison County Fillies were feted at the year-end banquet held last Wednesday evening.
Coach Kim Furnish and her assistant coaches spoke of the good year with the district championship and some of the players’ individual accomplishments.
Furnish was quick to praise her three departing seniors. The seniors are Kelsey Roberts, Whitney Gray and Chelsea Ingram. Gray and Roberts have been in the Fillies program from 2010 through 2015 while Ingram has a year on them beginning in 2009.
