  • MIKE’S MINUTE: There will always...

    People always say when someone complains about Kentucky weather to just hang around an hour or so and it will change.  
    Change is inevitable as time never stops and so the sports scene in Harrison County is changing.  

  • Two holes-in-one recorded...

    Donna Jacobs and John Kennedy each scored a hole in one recently at the Cynthiana Country Club.  Jacobs’ gem was shot on Tuesday on the 89-yard par three 13th hole. She used an 8 iron for the spectacular shot, which was witnessed by playing partner Barbara Snopek.
    Kennedy used a hybrid three club for his 186 yard hole in one also on the 13th hole. Kennedy’s ace, which was scored on Saturday, was witnessed by Mitchell Judy, David Mattox and Robbie Cox.

  • Breds close regular season...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds finished the regular season last week with two games on Wednesday and one on Friday as they headed into district play, which opened Monday.
    Region opponent Bishop Brossart was the first opponent on Wednesday as the Mustangs brought a good 19-11 record to the Hilltop.  
    Senior Justin Nutter went the seven innings for the Breds allowing eight hits and three runs (no earned runs) in the Thorobreds’ 10-3 win.  

  • Thorobreds win track region,...

    While qualifying 12 individuals and three relays for this Friday’s KHSAA state meet the Harrison County Thorobreds won the Class AA, Region 4 Meet Saturday outdistancing Lexington Catholic 126 to 108.  
    Covington Catholic was third with 76 points but the meet came down to a two-team battle for the biggest part of the day.  In fact, with the 4 x 400 relay and the triple jump remaining the score was tied between the two rivals.  

  • Breds win Senior Night battle...

    Six senior Harrison County baseball players and two stat girls were feted before the game Tuesday night as the Thorobreds hosted Campbell County on Senior Night.  
    Xavier Carter, Jeffrey Faulconer, Hunter Hill, Paul Jones, Justin Nutter and Josh Young were given commemorative baseball bats in honor of their senior year with the Thorobreds as well as scholarships from the Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association.  
    The stat girls, Abby Besson and Katelin Martin were given plaques in recognition of the service they have given to the program.  

  • Fillies close home season with...

    The Harrison County Fillies sent their three seniors off in style Monday night as they rolled past the Paris Lady Hounds, 9-2, on Shirley Field.  
    Seniors Lucinda Boyers, Tracey Hicks and Emalee Little were honored before the game on Monday.  
    Hicks then set the Paris girls down in order in the top of the first striking out two batters.  She then led off the Fillies’ half inning with a single and scored on Ashley Coppage’s double to give her team the lead.  

  • It’s a free country

    After a week off from Mike’s Minute I want to cover a couple of things in this one article.
    First, Harrison County lost one of its really good people last week when Gerald Reffett passed away at the young age of 61. I knew Gerald through his good wife Connie who played a role in the upbringing of our two daughters during their time in high school.  
    Connie was an assistant coach when Larry Allison was the Fillies’ basketball coach and both of the girls were involved either as a player (Amanda) or manager (Meghan).

  • Fillies rout Pendleton County 20...

    Thursday in the last district game before the tournament, the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Pendleton County Lady Cats 20-0 in three innings at Shirley Field.  
    Kecia Stephens pitched the three-inning affair for Harrison County allowing only two hits, hitting one batter and striking out three.  
    The Fillies gathered 14 hits in three innings with Coach Christine Garnett resting almost every starter after the first inning.
