Today's Sports

  • Things I don’t understand

    I am constantly amazed by human behavior and how other people think and act on a daily basis as well as in sports.  
    This column will be dedicated to what I consider to be strange things in sports.
    A couple of the strange items happened Sunday night before and during the Reds visit to the Cubs at Wrigley Field.  
    First, the pregame lasted about 45 minutes, almost all of which talked about the resurgent Cubs and their “stars,” rookie Kris Bryant and first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

  • Harrison County soccer girls do...

    Club soccer is equivalent to AAU for basketball players and several of the Harrison County Middle School and High School players have participated this off-season to date.
    The U-17 Paris Springboks captured the President’s Cup title in their age group.  There are six Fillies on the team.  They are Amelia Bolin, Taylor Landrum, Laura Beth Ledford, Jordan McDaniel, Charlie Moore and Chandlyr Puckett.  
    The U-12 Paris Springboks, coached by HCMS and HCHS Assistant coach David McDaniel, also had a great season.

  • Some catching up to do

    A lot can happen in two weeks and I feel like I need to catch up after being in Alaska for the better part of the 14 days previous to writing this.  I also want to write a little about sports in Alaska.  
    It is another world from Kentucky.
    The Breds and Fillies both came up a little short in the region but both had good seasons and represented Harrison County well.  They also won their respective districts for what has to seem like the umpteenth time to the district competition.  

  • Summer programs in full swing at...

    The youth ball leagues, whether it be baseball or softball, are all in full swing at River Road Park.  
    Recreation director Darrell Baxter discussed the different positions that each league is in and some of the issues surrounding them.  
    “We have players not coming to games already in Little League,” bemoaned Baxter.  “This makes it hard on the coaches when parents do not bring the child or call to let the coach know he isn’t coming.”

  • Baseball Hall of Fame inducts...

    Saturday, June 27, is the date for the third class of the Cynthiana-Harrison County Baseball Alumni Hall of Fame induction.  
    Another important date looms closer though as the deadline for discounted tickets is this Saturday, June 13. Tickets are $15 per adult and $5 for children under 10 if purchased by June 13. If not, the cost is $20 per adult and $10 per child under 10 years old.  
    Tickets may be purchased at Terry Jones’ A Action Pest Control on US 27 South or from Jimmy Fuller at the pro shop of the Cynthiana Country Club.  

  • Dandi-Lions edge Bandits 10-9 in...

    The Dandi-Lions improved to 2-0 in the young season as they edged the Bandits, 10-9, in Pigtail action Tuesday night.  
    The Dandi-Lions are coached by Jeff and Beth Delong, Steve and Kim Bowlin and Joe Hamm.  
    The Bandits, who played their first game Tuesday, are coached by Michael and Maria Coy, Aubrey Dye, Derrick Dye, and Brandon Turner.
    The game was close early as the Dandi-Lions led 3-2 after the first inning.  
    Desiree Couve had a two-RBI double in the first inning to spark the scoring.
