    Senior Zack Day’s two-out two-RBI single in the bottom of the sixth lifted the Harrison County Thorobreds to a 4-3 win over Montgomery County in the 10th Region tournament Monday in Paris.  
    The win not only propelled the Breds into the semi finals on Wednesday against Scott High (16-17), but also avenged two regular season losses to the Indians.

    Camryn Whitaker spoke to the Cynthiana Lions Club Tuesday and as usual did a bang up job. She spoke to the Rotary Club the Thursday before but readily made the trip back to speak to the Lions.  
    Of course, the trip gave her another chance to be with her family as her mother Connie, dad, Mac and niece Harper were in attendance for the meeting.  
    There were several guests for the meeting along with the regular Lions so the upstairs meeting room at Biancke’s was full.

    When your team’s pitching allows one hit in two games, your fielders make no errors and your team scores 31 runs, the chances of winning are pretty good.  
    That is just what the Harrison County Thorobreds did Sunday and Monday in Carlisle as they swept past Robertson County and Nicholas County to win the 38th District tournament.
    On Sunday, the Breds used four pitchers to combine for a no hitter in blanking the Black Devils of Robertson County, 21-0.

    The track was slick and the weather cold for the running of the Class AA, Region 4 track meet at Sharp Middle School in Pendleton County Friday. The Fillies and the Thorobreds had four events qualify for the state meet this Friday at the University of Kentucky, which begins at 4:30 p.m.  
    The Thorobreds, with only 10 competitors, finished third overall coming in behind Highlands and Lexington Catholic.  

  • What is best for the kids?

    The political season is upon us, as if it ever really leaves, and each and every decision made will be because “it is the best for our kids.”  
    Well, in the first part of my thoughts this week I am going to address something that is not the “best for our kids” in the 38th District.

    Thursday afternoon on the Hilltop the Breds played what would be the last regular season game of the 2016 season.  
    The Bearcats of Walton Verona were the opponents as both teams were preparing for their respective district tournaments.  
    The visitors started the game well with a two-out solo home run by third baseman Garret Lelnkamp off Breds’ starter and winning pitcher Nathan Fryman.
