  • We should name the baseball field

    Now that basketball is over and the Volunteers aren’t playing on Summitt Court and the Oklahoma State Cowboys have shut down Sutton Court in Iba Hall, it is time for baseball.  
    A time when you drive on Pete Rose Way to get to a ball park and by a statue of Stan the Man to get to Mecca or Busch Stadium.  
    What’s my point with all of the names?  
    Out of all of these names on courts, stadiums and streets only one of these people is dead, that being Mr. Iba.  

  • Westside principal has special...

    When Jon Hoskins was growing up in Zionsville, Ind., he played all of the games in the back yard and driveway with the other boys in the neighborhood. Baseball, soccer, football and of course, living in Indiana, they played basketball.  
    Jon and his brother Bill and Bill’s best friend Brad Stevens, who lived nine houses away on South Maxwell, would always be involved in whatever game there was to be played on a particular day.  

  • Fillies lose two in Bracken...

    The Webber Farms/Bracken County Classic was good for the Harrison County Fillies in the past years. But the two-time defending champion Fillies were not blessed with a favorable schedule in this year’s tournament and lost two of three games.  
    The Fillies opened with an 8 p.m. start on Friday night against the eventual Classic winner Sacred Heart.  
    The Valkyries out of Louisville came in sporting a veteran team and a 4-2 record.

  • Fillies drop opener in Florida,...

    The Harrison County Fillies took an early lead but couldn’t hold it as the highly regarded Pace High School Patriots pulled out a 7-2 win Monday evening.  
    The Patriots won their 10th game of the year against four defeats while the Fillies lost their first chance of the year.  
    Sophomore Ashley Coppage opened the second inning with her first home run of the year as the Fillies took an early 1-0 lead.

  • Fillies JV win over West Florida...

    Lucinda Boyers drove in six runs with a four hits in five at bats game to lead the Harrison County junior varsity Fillies over West Florida 12-8 in Pensacola, Fla., Tuesday night.  

  • Thorobreds lose two in early...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds gave a game away and lost another in the first games of the season in Florida this week.  
    The Breds fell to the Gulf Breeze Dolphins Monday night in an uncharacteristic display of poor fielding by a 5-3 score.  

  • Harrison County’s tennis team...

    Harrison County graduated the No. 1 Fillies doubles team in Polly Whalen and Jacqueline Young, the No. 1 Thorobreds singles player in Ross Smith and one half of the Breds No. 1 doubles team in Kalen Woosley.  
    The other half of that No. 1 doubles team, junior Ben McDonald, moved away so there are several holes to fill for second year coach Kara Mattox.  
    However, given these circumstances, the cupboard is far from bare.  

  • Florida trip entertaining but...

    The weather is wonderful and the hotel is great, but there is not a lot of time to relax and enjoy it.  
    Four grandchildren and a bunch of ball games does not allow for much “free” time.  
    I’m not complaining mind you, but when I am this busy little things set me off.  
    I am currently having problems with my iphone connection, which causes sending video issues and double and triple work, which sets me off.
