  • Harrison County track team wins...

    The Harrison County track team, both the Fillies and Thorobreds, continued to perform well in two meets last week.  
    The first home meet of the season on Thursday was a seven-team meet for the girls and a six-team contest for the boys.  Each of the Harrison County teams finished first by large margins in the contest held at the Athletic Complex.
    The Fillies had 10 first place finishes, four in the relays, as they scored 165 points to 92 for the second place squad from Madison Southern.

  • Joy in others misery

    There are many ways for people to find joy in this world. Wildcat fans are ecstatic with the eighth national championship and well they should be.  
    In fact, according to a writer for the Herald Leader, they are now destined to surpass the University of California at Los Angeles in total NCAA championships.

    Archers fifth in middle school state,
    sixth in high school
    A year that was thought to be a rebuilding one for the Harrison County Middle School archery team appears instead to be a reloading year.  
    Several talented eighth grade archers moved on to the high school last May, but those remaining took up where they left off by finishing fifth out of 49 teams in the state tournament.  
    The middle school team had a balanced attack with all involved shooting for good scores. So good in fact, that the squad was only 18 points from second.

  • Breds end streak, rout St. Henry...

    A two-game losing streak isn’t much for many teams, but it seems much longer to the Harrison County High School baseball program.  
    Add to the scenario that the steak came after six straight wins on the road and it is even more unlikely.
    That is all in the past now as the Thorobreds got back on track Tuesday night beating St. Henry’s Crusaders 11-1 in five innings.
    The game started poorly for the Breds as starting pitcher Justin Nutter was wild in the beginning walking the first two batters and throwing a wild pitch.  

  • Breds edge Scott High in eight...

    After playing solid defensively for six straight victories, the Harrison County Thorobreds gave up 10 unearned runs in two games losing two straight at home after defeating Scott High on Thursday night, 3-1, in eight innings.  
    The Breds dropped a 12-9 decision to Covington Holy Cross on Friday and then returned to the diamond Saturday to lose to Grant County, 7-4.

  • Fillies ice the Lady Bears in...

    It was an 11-1 night on the Hilltop as the Harrison County Fillies joined the Breds in defeating their opponent 11-1 in varsity action.  
    The Fillies defeated Bracken County at Shirley Field in a game that was very similar to the action taking place on the adjacent baseball diamond.
    Bracken County scored in the top of the first off starter Tracey Hicks to take an early 1-0 lead. Hicks and Jami Davis combined for the next five innings to shut the Lady Bears offense down.  

  • Mike’s Minute

    Congratulations to the Kentucky Wildcats on the eighth national championship.  
    The young men spent their year in Lexington wisely, working hard and blending with a couple of more veteran players to make a really good team.   
    They deserve the accolades that are coming their way and will for the most part reap huge rewards when they go on to the next step in their professional career.
    How about the National Anthem before the championship game? I don’t think it was the worst rendition I have ever heard, but it is in the top three.
