    Sophomore Dillon Arnold held Grant County to one hit Monday as the Harrison County Thorobreds defeated the home standing Braves 6-2. Arnold struck out five and walked just one as the Braves were retired in order in five of the seven innings. Grant County’s two runs came in the fourth when shortstop Hoyt Plunkett led off with a single and advanced around the bases on errors.  Centerfielder Damien Inggulis reached on an error and also scored an unearned run on a fielder’s choice.

    The Harrison County Middle School Fillies defeated Scott Middle 5-0 on Wednesday and Lexington Christian 2-1 Monday to advance to the finals of the Bluegrass Conference Tuesday night.
    The first round match with Scott Middle was played on a damp LeBus Field under a beautiful sky. The rain and drizzle ended by game time so the teams played a little conservatively at first to adjust to field conditions.

    Track and field athletes must participate in four regular season meets prior to the regional meet to be eligible to participate in the meet. The weather has been a huge obstacle for the Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds as they strive to meet that qualification.  

  • My faith is restored

    The political season has become such a name calling session on both sides I find my faith in my fellow man waning as each day goes by.
     But Sunday I had some hope pumped into my feelings and now I feel better. You might think that a person should be inspired after attending church. Well, I went to mass on Saturday and while inspired as always that was not the reason for my boost on Sunday.
