    Natasha Ingram and Campbell Hall each brought home a third place finish Thursday in the KHSAA Class 2A Track Meet held at Owsley Frazier Park at the University of Louisville.  
    Ingram scored all 10 of the Fillies points as she placed third in the discus and fifth in the shot put.
    She threw the discus a personal best 111 feet, 5 inches, which is the fourth best throw in school history.

  • Thorobred Bowl picks up a title...

  • ESPN-Home to LeBron and the...

    Although this doesn’t go with the headline of my article, I must say this. Good-bye Jim Tressel.
    Before this is over, Ohio State will make Southern Cal look like Rose Hulman in the cheating category.
    Of course, Tressel’s former players and other Ohio State alums and apologists are saying what a great guy Tressel is and maybe that’s correct. But as far as the players go, if the coach doesn’t enforce the rules and lets you do whatever you want, then of course he’s a good guy.

  • Fillies fall in region play to...

    The Harrison County Fillies didn’t hit the ball hard often on Monday afternoon and when they did, it seemed to be right at a defender. The Fillies fell to George Rogers Clark, 4-0, in the 10th Region quarter finals.
    They managed only two hits and three base runners in the game and only threatened to score in the last inning.

    Breds’ soccer camp June 20-22

  • Baseball Breds finish at 18-9...

    The defending state champion Harrison County Thorobreds begin defense of their state championship this week after completing the regular season with an 18-9 record.
    Last week the Breds faced Campbell County on Thursday on the Hilltop and defeated the Camels by an 8-4 score.
    After starting pitcher Jordan Martin set Campbell County down in order in the top of the first, the Thorobreds’ Johnson Garrison hit a one-out home run in the bottom of the inning to give the Breds a 1-0 lead.

  • Fillies win fifth straight...

    The Harrison County Fillies won the 38th district title Tuesday evening by defeating the Nicholas County Lady Jackets 8-1 on Shirley Field. Both teams will advance to the 10th Region tournament next Monday at Pendleton County.  
    The Fillies victory was much more difficult than the score indicates as the game was scoreless until the Fillies scored an unearned run in the bottom of the third when Tracey Hicks reached first with two outs on an error by the shortstop and Ashley Coppage drove her in with a single.  

  • Fillies, Breds finish 5th in...

    Both the girls’ and boys’ track squads finished fifth in the tough Region 4 Track Regional held at the Athletic Complex Saturday.
    Four girls and 13 boys qualified to compete in the Class 2A state meet to be held this Thursday in Louisville.
    The first two finishers in each event automatically qualify for state and the rest qualify based on the top times compared to all regions in their particular class.

  • Has baseball’s interleague play...

    This week was the first round of play when the American League and National League teams play against each other.
    It seems like that there has been more chatter from managers and sportscasters in this year than before about the unfair aspects of the policy.
    Jim Leyland of the Tigers and Dusty Baker noted that they would prefer that the play between the leagues not be continued due to the difference in the leagues and the relative strength of the opposition each team is scheduled to play.

  • Fillies close out season with...

    The Harrison County Fillies finished the season Saturday working to get ready for the district tournament by hosting a round robin tournament Saturday at Shirley Field.
    During the week before that, the Fillies hosted region rival Bourbon County and went on the road to Lexington to face the Lady Knights of Lexington Catholic.
