  • Harrison County track teams run...

    The Harrison County High School track teams continued this unusual season last week participating in the Scott County All Comers on Tuesday afternoon.
    The Tuesday meet was followed by the weather-delayed Harrison County Invitational on Thursday.  
    At Scott County, the Thorobreds had one of their finest performances of the year as they won the meet beating several teams who they had trailed on other occasions.
    Four first place finishes led the way for the Thorobreds as Coach Robert Walker tried some new combinations that worked out well.

    Northern Kentucky softball season
    ends with losses
    in regional
    The Northern Kentucky Lady Norse ended the season last week as they lost two heart breakers in the regional in Saginaw, Mich. The Lady Norse lost to Saginaw Valley State 1-0 on a suicide squeeze in the bottom of the seventh on Monday and then came back on Tuesday to drop another 1-0 game to Ashland.

  • Donkeyball draws crowd despite...

    I would be remiss if I didn’t comment on the donkey basketball game held at the middle school on Friday, May 6.  
    Erin Butler did an outstanding job organizing and putting the event together.  It was well run and very well attended even though there was a softball game, baseball game and a tennis match going on at the same time.  
    Marshall’s Tractor Supply was the winning team though there was not a Marshall on a donkey.  They ran rough shod (donkey term) over Southern States in the championship game.

  • Jet’s John Conner visits with...

    Former University of Kentucky fullback and current New York Jet John Conner visited the Harrison County High School weight room Friday afternoon and talked to the football team.  
    Coach Mark Carroll and 27 of his players were on the Hilltop to gain some wisdom and conditioning tips from Conner and Clif Marshall of Ignition, who brought Conner in to speak to the players of his alma mater.  

  • Breds sweep Nicholas, Fleming...

    The rain finally let up enough so the Harrison County Thorobreds could get some games in and the defending state champs took full advantage of the opportunity.  
    Thursday evening district competitor Nicholas County was the opponent for the second time this year, this time on the Hilltop.
    The results were similar to the 15-0 loss that the Bluejackets suffered at home on April 21 as the Breds took an 11-0 victory in five innings.   

  • 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.
