  • Breds soccer welcomes back 14...

    Coach Nick Hill has a veteran, talented group back for the 2012 Harrison County Thorobreds Soccer squad including eight seniors.  
    When one adds the six juniors, many  of whom played a lot of minutes last year, he has a formidable team to begin the season.  
    Last year’s 9-9-2 record was somewhat disappointing though the Breds always face a tough schedule and had some injury issues along the way.  

  • Enough already

    What has been going on at Penn State University has been some of the most vile and sick incidents in recent memory and yet the Paterno family refuses to let the findings stand and move on with what is left of their life.  
    The report issued by former FBI Director Louis Freeh was 267 pages of damnation of the Penn State football program as well as the president of the university and its athletic director.  

  • Ashbrook, Toomey win Jungle...

    The Jungle was filled with excitement this weekend and it wasn’t the normal lions and tigers or the Bengals making the noise.  
    Former HCHS baseball players J.D. Ashbrook and J.P. Toomey won the 2012 Jungle two-man tournament with a total score of 195 for the 36-hole event.  
    The tournament, which is named for the late Jim Letcher, featured 80 players in a triple format contest.

    Kendall fires second no-hitter
    in Cincinnati on Friday
    Friday the 13th was an unlucky day for the Ohio Blades baseball team as they were no-hit by Brandon Kendall in an 18 and under tournament held in the Queen City.  
    Kendall, who will be a senior at Harrison County High School this year, struck out four batters and walked two while pitching his second no hitter. This was the first complete game pitching outing for Kendall since his injury in the regional championship game last spring.

  • HCHS Track
  • Burley Belles battle course and...

    Cynthia Powell of Winchester, playing out of Andover Golf Course, won the Championship Flight in the 2012 Burley Belles on Sunday coming from behind to defeat Frankfort’s Donna McNeil by two strokes.  
    It was Burley Belle championship number 12 for Powell and it is doubtful any of the others were more challenging.  
    Although three of the championship flight withdrew due to the heat, including defending champ Anne Combs, the competition and the heat were formidable foes.  

  • CCC to host ‘The Jungle’ this...

    The Cynthiana Country Club will host the fourth annual “The Jungle” tournament this weekend beginning with practice rounds on Friday.  
    The event, sponsored by Palmer-Hampton Insurance and Real Estate, is named after the late Jim Letcher, who was an active member of the Cynthiana Country Club and instrumental in the success of this and many other events involving the whole community.  
    Letcher died on July 17, 2009, and the tournament has borne his name since that time. The tournament is the former member/guest contest.

  • Baseball half over, goodbye Andy

    The half way point of the baseball season is here with the All Star Game played Tuesday night in Kansas City marking that dividing line.  
    It is actually a little more than half with teams having already played 84 or 85 games of the 162-game season. But if you throw in the month of playoffs, it is less than half way for many of the teams.  
    To date, the big spenders, with the exception of the Yankees, are not in first place in their division.
