  • Thorobreds win, Fillies second...

    “We hosted a great meet and teams left happy,” said Coach Danny Simpson following Saturday’s 43rd annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet. “The Fillies would have liked to have won, but give credit to Lexington Catholic. They were the best girls’ team today.”
    The Harrison County Fillies came up 46 points shy of the team winning point total of 184 that the Lady Knights tallied as they won the girls’ part of the meet.

    After a couple of tough matches with Montgomery County and George Rogers Clark the Harrison County High School tennis team returned to the Hilltop  last Thursday as the boys’ and girls’ team bounced past the Colonels and Lady Colonels of Bourbon County.

    On this day only Kinsey King won an exhibition match for the Harrison County Fillies squad while the remainder went down to defeat.

  • First pitch
  • Everyone is special in one way...

    During the time we are on the earth each of us meets people who are special to us in one way or another.  
    Of course, our spouse, at least on the wedding day, and our children are always special, but I am referring to those who we are not related to, in love with or both.  
    This Friday evening the baseball alums are getting together for a little batting demonstration at 5:30 p.m. and then before the game the first team of Don Snopek’s coaching tenure will be honored along with Snopek.

  • ‘But he has been a model citizen...

    I had no clue how many people read my column. It’s kind of like Let’s Talk Sports on Saturday morning.  
    Patti can never figure out why people would listen to Ray and me, but too many people said something nice to her for her to deny it.  
    The same with the newspaper column. I had many people mention the little bit I put in last week about Mrs. Davis and it was all positive.  
    Of course, with Mrs. Davis it would have been hard to say otherwise, but people sometimes fool you.
