    Bowlers split with Bourbon County Sunday
    The Harrison County bowling team split its matches with Bourbon County Sunday, but the girls’ team is coming closer to winning each week.  
    On Sunday, the Lady Colonels edged the Fillies bowlers by only a 3-4 score winning total points by only 172 pins. The Fillies took the second and fourth head-to-head matches and the first Baker’s game. They only lost the second Baker’s game by five pins or the total pins would not have mattered.  

  • Reds Fest 2010-11

    On Friday night I traveled north to the Duke Energy Center to participate for the second time in Reds Fest.  
    Though it may be hard to believe, the Reds actually want Ray Sparks and me to be part of the show as we interview Reds players in front of a live audience.
    This year we started with Bronson Arroyo followed by Jay Bruce and Mike Leake.   
    One of the best parts of this experience is how truly nice these men are to us and to the fans that stand and listen to the interviews.

  • Harrison’s short handed...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds wrestling team began the season Saturday as it hosted the Rumble on the Hilltop.  
    Ten teams braved the cold and the snow, which greeted them as they began their trip to Cynthiana.  
    Assistant Coach Luke Tucker was in charge of the tournament and worked with the teams to keep the matches going and allow for a good tournament.  

  • Fillies make it two straight...

    The 2010-2011 Fillies’ season  continued on the right path Monday night as the Harrison County girls won a road game at Bourbon County, 54-45, over the Lady Colonels.  
    The win makes the season record 2-0 with the next game Saturday night at McCreary County Central (0-2).  
    The loss dropped the Lady Colonels to 1-2 after defeating Deming and losing to Maysville St. Patrick, both on the road.

  • Eagles glide past Thorobreds...

    The Scott High Eagles made a four-point half time lead a 14-point lead at the end of three quarters and went on to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds, 70-54 Tuesday night in Cynthiana.  
    The Breds’ inexperience reared its ugly head again in the third period as nine costly turnovers in the stanza helped limit the Breds to only seven points while the Eagles hit for 17.  
    “We played hard,” noted Coach Mike Reitz. “We have to learn to value each possession more and make better passes.  This will come with time.”  

  • Fillies begin new season with 53...

    The Piper Akin era began Tuesday night on the Hilltop with a hard-earned victory over the Frankfort Lady Panthers, 53-47.  
    The Fillies took the lead from the start and never trailed as they opened with a 5 to 0 run and never allowed the visitors to get closer than four points after the Lady Panthers’ Sheree Brown hit a three to cut the lead to 5-3.  
    Again the Fillies went on a run this time scoring 10 straight to take a 15-3 advantage.  
    The first year coach was obviously pleased to begin her career with a win.  

  • Thorobreds drop opener to Simon...

    The youth-laden Harrison County Thorobreds ran into a veteran group of Simon Kenton Pioneers Monday night as they lost the season opener 68-47.   
    The Breds held their own for the first half as they battled the eighth region favorite to a 31-all stand still.  
    The Breds actually out rebounded the bigger, more physical Pioneers in the first half while making some key shots to pull even at the end of the opening two periods.  

  • I’m ready for some season limits

    I love sports. I particularly like high school, most college sports, the NFL and major league baseball.  
    I wouldn’t give a plugged nickel for pro soccer or hockey. But even the sports I love need to cut back on their seasons.
    If you think about it, we are currently playing high school football, basketball and wrestling. There is college soccer, basketball, football and other college sports being played along with pro football and basketball. Pro basketball will go way into the baseball season next June.   
    It is just too much.

    The season didn’t open officially until Monday night, but the Harrison County Thorobreds had an exceptional opportunity to begin Saturday morning at Rupp Arena.

Green County, much like the Thorobreds, suffered severe losses by graduation and were playing five new starters.
