    The Harrison County Fillies beat Nicholas County, Jeffersontown, Bryan Station and Robertson County twice to raise their season record to 12-3 after Tuesday’s games.  
    Last Wednesday the Nicholas County Lady Jackets fell to 8-7 on the year as Harrison County handed them an 11-0 loss in five innings.  
    The game was scoreless until the bottom of the third when Madison Polley singled and Nicholas County hurler Jonna Watkins could not find the plate, walking two.  

  • A ritual of spring

    A Ritual of Spring
    It is that time of year again when the top college players decide whether to stay in school or go on to the professional level.  
    Since John Calipari has been at The University of Kentucky, there have always been some players destined to leave.  
    This year was no exception. In fact, it was made ridiculous when the entire squad opted to put their name into consideration by the pros.  
    Of course, under the new rule, as long as they do not hire an agent they can still come back to school for the following year.
