  • Coaches helping other country’s...

    Coach John Calipari has signed on to coach the Dominican Republic basketball team during the summer.  At least I think it’s the Dominican Republic and for the purpose of this article it doesn’t really make any difference because a foreign team is a foreign team.
    When basketball began as an Olympic sport and until just a few Olympics past, America dominated the game.  Even in the Cold War years the Russians had to cheat to beat us in 1972.  

  • Track teams finish 2nd at East...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies track teams are back at near full strength and it showed last Thursday as they each finished second in the East Jessamine All Comers Meet.  
    The Fillies were edged by Boyle County 73 to 70 as they were runners up in the five-team meet.  
    This meet, unlike some of the others the teams have competed in, featured teams with about the same enrollment as Harrison County.  

  • Fillies lose to Bullitt East...

    The McDonald’s Classic softball tournament held Friday and Saturday at Shirley Field featured teams from Casey County, Paris, Bourbon County, Mason County and Bullitt East along with the host Fillies.  
    One thing for sure, Coach Christine Garnett can never be accused of setting an easy road for her team as she opened with the sixth region powerhouse Lady Chargers of Bullitt East.

  • Thorobreds roll in McDonalds/...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds won three games in two days to improve their season record to 11-5 while winning the McDonalds/Harrison Memorial Hospital Classic.  
    The Breds opened the Classic with the Conner Cougars of Hebron, Ky. The Cougars jumped on Thorobreds’ starter Josh Morrison for five runs in one and two thirds innings as Morrison had trouble with his control.  
    The Cougars scored in the top of the first on a single, two Harrison County errors and a ground out to take the early lead.

  • Championship reunion Friday on...

    The State Champions from 1997 and 1998 will be honored Friday night before and during the Thorobreds game with Fleming County on the Hilltop.
    The festivities begin around 5 p.m. when the former players take batting practice and will continue through the game.  
    There is a junior varsity game scheduled before the introduction of the players, statisticians and coaches from the two teams. Event organizer Buddy Renaker has been working to contact the participants and said he has a positive response from 75 percent or more that expect to be in attendance.  

  • Fillies’ struggles continue,...

    The Harrison County Fillies played some of the better competition they have seen this year in the past week and came away with one win in three tries.  
    Fleming County, with a 9-4 record and Rowan County, who is currently 15-5, provided some stiff competition giving Coach Christine Garnett a better idea as to what her team needs to do before the district begins.
    The Fillies played host to the Lady Panthers of Fleming County on Thursday, April 28.  The visitors jumped out for nine runs in the top of the first and the Fillies could never recover.
