    Gab Hatterick and Laurel McDaniel’s hat tricks and stellar defensive play led the Harrison County Middle School Fillies to a 7-0 win Tuesday night over Lexington Christian Academy on the Hilltop.  
    This Eighth Grade Night match win brings the Fillies record to 6-0-1 for the season.

    Senior Grant Bennett was not his own worst enemy Monday as he pitched against the 13-3 Scott County Cardinals in Georgetown.  
    He gave up just six base hits and walked four while throwing two wild pitches as the Cardinals won 10-0 in five innings.  His and his teammates fielding was the big problem as they combined for seven errors with Bennett picking up three of them.  

  • Busy times on the Hilltop

    The action on the Hilltop has been at a fever pitch for some time and will be even busier this weekend.  
    It will not be as busy as it would have been with the Vernon Bibb softball tournament cancelled but still there will be a lot going on.  
    The action all started with the 60th Annual Lions Auction followed by the Rotary/Relay for Life pancake breakfast and the Frankie Taylor Memorial Easter Egg Hunt.

    Tuesday, April, 11 was the date for the battle between the two not perfect but undefeated girls’ soccer teams in the Bluegrass Conference.  
    Woodford County came to the Hilltop with an identical record as the Fillies at 3-0-1.  
    Along with Woodford County came steady rain which brought a very wet field.  The Fillies struck first as Kylie Hudgins played a nice ball to Laurel McDaniel who beat the Woodford keeper to the spot for a 1-0 lead.

  • What could have been or what...

    I just returned from New York City and Waverly, Tennessee, for two completely different reasons and while traveling came up with some good ideas for a column.  
    Unfortunately, at my advanced age, I forgot most of them but the last idea is still fresh in my mind.  
    The New York trip was to accompany the HCHS Class of 2017 on their Senior Trip, which was a very enjoyable venture.  
    The trip was well planned and executed and we were fortunate to have a great guide in the city and a very good bus driver in the city.
