  • Plans made for Hall of Fame...

    The Cynthiana/Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association has two events coming up in June.
    On Saturday, June 14, a trip is planned for Alumni Association members and guests to a Legends game in Lexington with game time at 7:05 p.m.  
    Each person provides their own transportation for the trip, which will feature seats on the third base line and group recognition.  Ticket cost is $9 each.

  • Fillies split four games, host...

    The Harrison County Fillies lost to Henry Clay Thursday, 11-6, in nine innings and then went on the road Friday, Monday and Tuesday to win two of three.
    The Henry Clay game was tight throughout with the two teams trading the lead until the second extra inning.  
    The Lady Blue Devils (14-8) rallied with five runs for the win.
    The Fillies took an early lead facing Somerset when Sydney Motell singled with two outs in the first, Courtney Newsom doubled and Macy Martin singled to drive in Motell for a 1-0 lead after one inning.  

  • Breds third, Fillies fourth in...

    The weather Saturday mirrored the 2014 season as the Region 4, Class AA track meet was delayed for 90 minutes due to rain and lightning. Thanks to hard work of the coaches and volunteers, a quality event was staged.
    Highlands defeated defending champion Lexington Catholic in the girls’ meet by a narrow 154-to-147 margin.  Western Hills had 84 points to finish third follow closely by Harrison County with 80 points.  
    Franklin County, Scott, Holmes, Pendleton County and Bourbon County also competed though neither the Lady Cats nor Lady Colonels scored.

  • Sometimes I think I have lived...

    As I have grown older, I have come to realize that many things that other people do and/or say do not suit me.  Most of these do not involve sports so I don’t say or write much about it because this column is supposed to be about sports.
    I began Sunday evening thinking that I was going to write about my trip to the last SEC game of the year for the University of Kentucky baseball Wildcats.  

  • Sports beat

    Three HCHS athletes honored
    Three Harrison County High School athletes won honors during the last weeks, two in track and one in tennis.
    Haley Carr was named Fillies Athlete of the Month for April for her contributions to the Fillies track team. This award is voted on by the female athletes of the school and is presented each month to a deserving senior.
    Senior Jacob Markley was selected by the 10th Region tennis coaches to be awarded the Sportsmanship Award for the region. The coaches vote during the 10th Region Tournament.

  • Thorobreds 20-11 after wins over...

    A couple of 20 win seasons in a row is the goal of most programs in high school baseball, but that is not the case in Harrison County.  
    The Thorobreds won Friday night in Carlisle to reach 20 wins for the 34th season in a row.  
    The Breds won No. 19 at Scott High the night before and dusted the Bluejackets 17-4 Friday for the magic 20.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Clifford, Markley state...

    Bryson Clifford and Jacob Markley, seniors at Harrison County High School, will get a chance to compete for the tennis state championship next Thursday at the Hilary Boone Tennis Complex at the University of Kentucky.  The two each finished third in the region losing to the No. 1 seeds in the region on Monday afternoon.
    Clifford battled Meredith Laskey of Highlands losing 0-6, 0-6 in sets that were much more contested than the score might indicate.  

  • Fillies come from behind for 7-6...

    The Harrison County Fillies spotted the Nicholas County Lady Jackets a 6-1 advantage after two innings and then came back for a 7-6 win Monday in Carlisle.  
    The big district game was a rematch of the April 22 game in Cynthiana where the Lady Jackets took a one-run win.  
    Walks and hit batters were the downfall for the home squad as the two Nicholas County pitchers combined for seven walks and five hit batters.  
    The Fillies managed only six hits as it is hard to establish a hitting routine with so few strikes being thrown.  

  • Breds break four-game losing...

    Harrison County’s four-game losing streak came to an end Tuesday night in Flemingsburg as the Breds defeated the Panthers (6-17) by a 7-4 score.
    On Monday night in a pitcher’s duel, Harrison County lost its fourth straight game by a 2-1 margin to Mason County.
    Harrison County’s John King and Mason County’s Michael Sutton each pitched scoreless baseball for the first six innings.
