  • Duo wins The Jungle for second...

    The Jungle winners Harrison County senior Anthony Shirley, left, and partner Wayne Taulbee were the winners of the annual The Jungle tournament at the Cynthiana Country Club. Pictured with the Jungle Cup and the winners is Tim Letcher, who made the presentation. The Jungle is named in memory of Tim’s father, the late Jim Letcher, and is sponsored by Palmer-Hampton Agency. This is the second year in a row that the duo has won the event.

  • Veterans return to bolster...

    Coach Danny Simpson has a group of veteran girls, though youthful, and could potentially have a strong group of veterans back for the boys’ cross country team as well.  
    The potential comes from last year’s leading scorer and fastest runner senior Jacob Marsh, who is currently being sidelined by a severe ankle sprain. Marsh suffered this sprain before the regional track meet last spring and is still being treated for the ailment.

    Wiley participates in IU soccer camp
    Thorobreds soccer player Logan Wiley participated in the Indiana University Soccer Camp held July 6-10. Wiley was one of 400 who were in Bloomington to learn at the premier soccer school in the Midwest.

  • Golf teams to face tough...

    Coach Jason Crisp has kind of a good news/bad news outlook on this year’s golf season.  
    In both the girls’ and boys’ teams he has several returning golfers, each of whom have shown great improvement in the early stages of practice.  The bad news is so do the other top teams in the region have their top players back and in the boys case, a tough team has been added.  
    The girls’ team returns all four starters from last year and the Fillies look to be much improved.  

  • The Tri-County Sluggers

    The Tri-County Sluggers baseball team were runners-up in the Summer Slam Tournament held in Harrodsburg, KY July 23-24. They compted in the 11 under division. Team members who competed are: Drew Davis, James Fryman, Jeremy Moran, Noah Gifford. Back Row:Spencer Morris, Jacob Thornton, Coach Kevin Morris, Spencer Free, Tyler Franklin and Ryan Smiley. Members who were unable to participate were Russ Judy, T.J. Whetsine, Coach Steve Judy and Coach Jeremy Whetstin.

  • Thorobreds tackling the defense...

    Coach Mark Carroll said he feels like his team was tired by the end of many games last year and believes the cause of this was too many people playing too many plays.  
    “Our goal is to have 21 people starting on defense and offense and only a couple going both ways to help us stay fresher,” said Carroll.  “Nick Slucher and Matt Carter are two of the players who will rotate both ways with the rest periods on offense where we are deeper.”  

  • Breds expected to be one of top...

    Nick Hill welcomes back a savvy group of veterans for his fifth year as head coach of the Harrison County Thorobreds soccer team.  
    Graduated from last year’s runner up team in the district are D. A. Wiglesworth, Austin Lail, Johnson Garrison and Eric Sanders.
    Each of these players had some particular skills that will have to be replaced by this year’s team as well as the quartet leadership and ruggedness.  
    The 14-5-2 Thorobreds from 2010 also finished third in the region and were very competitive in each match on the schedule.

  • How serious do we take ourselves...

    Patti and I went to Bardstown last weekend to see Amber Philpott and her family.  
    Well, actually we went to see the Wizard of Oz and Amber, Steve, Theresa and Gary were there, but I wanted to throw a famous name into my article;  a famous name other than the Wizard of Oz that is.  
    Imagine my surprise when Ozzie Smith wasn’t there at all and there was a play about a little girl from Kansas who was following a yellow brick road and there weren’t any Jayhawks or ball players of any kind.  

  • Harrison Cheerleaders have high...

    Jessica Reynolds has taken over the Harrison County cheer leading reins from DeDe Shirley and doesn’t expect to miss a beat.  
    “We have six great seniors back along with a talented group of juniors and sophomores,” she noted.  “Add seven exceptional freshmen and we have more than made up for our losses from last year.”  
    Not that Reynolds is taking the losses lightly.  Julie Henson and Niki Whalen are gone from last year’s team having graduated in the spring.
