  • If the conferences all realign,...

    Here is my idea for realigning the conferences. 

    There would be four conferences. One for the student athletes, two for kind of middle of the road schools and one for pro’s in waiting.

    First, the student athlete conference.  Some teams are obvious: Vanderbilt, Northwestern and Duke would make up the core of the actual student athlete conference along with Stanford.

  • New track facility something to...

    We may be bragging too much, but I doubt it. 

    The Harrison County Athletic Complex is just a really good track facility which is a fact, not a boast. 

    I spent the entire regional track meet Saturday in the broiling sun watching some outstanding performances and also watching the reaction of the visiting athletes and coaches. 

  • Breds trounce St. Pat 14-2, move...

    The Harrison County Baseball Breds jumped all over Maysville St. Patrick Monday afternoon and advanced in the 10th Region Tournament by a 14-2 margin. 

    Eric Sanders started the run production when he doubled in the bottom of the first and score on Jared Martin’s single. 

    The onslaught was in full force in the bottom of the second as the Breds scored nine runs on seven hits, two walks and two St. Patrick errors.  Hunter Hill, Matthew Dye each had run-scoring doubles and Josh Moss, Christian Chasteen and Shane Fowler each drove in runs with singles.

  • Ashbrook signs with White Sox,...

    Former Harrison County Thorobred and Morehead State Eagle star J.D. Ashbrook signed Monday with the Chicago White Sox.  

    Head area scout for the White Sox, Phil Gulley, was in Cynthiana Monday morning to sign Ashbrook at Biancke’s Restaurant downtown. 

    Ashbrook is to head immediately to Bristol, Va., to check in Wednesday, June 16, for a four day mini-camp before the season gets underway on June 22.

  • Fillies fall to Clark in region...

    The Harrison County Fillies ended a spectacular season last Wednesday night as they fell in the region championship game, 11-2, to George Rogers Clark. 

    The 32-9 Lady Cards advance to the state championship in Owensboro this Friday to face 29-11 Ashland Paul Blazer.  

    The Fillies’ season ended with a 31-8 record.

  • Fillies win Thursday/Friday game...

    It took 23 hours to play the fourth inning in the championship game of the 38th District Softball Championship between Nicholas County and Harrison County. 

    The reason it happened is still not exactly clear but it happened never the less. 

  • Track team ends regular season,...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds track squads ended the regular season Thursday on the Hilltop with very good performances and look now to improve on this effort Saturday in the Region 4 meet. 

    The Thorobreds finished second of eight teams Thursday trailing only powerful Scott County. En route to this impressive performance, the Breds had five first place performances and five seconds. 

    Harrison County dominated the relays winning the 800m relay and finishing second in the 3200m relay and the 400m relay.

  • Lady Colonels upset Fillies 4-3...

    Bourbon County’s Lady Colonels scored four unearned runs in the third inning and made them stand up to take a 4-3 win over the Harrison County Fillies Thursday night.  It was the last regular season home game for the Fillies, who fell to 28-7 with the loss. 

    Bourbon County improved to 15-13 with the win and a date at against the Montgomery County Lady Indians Monday night in the district.

  • What the kids don’t...

    I made my first trip to the Coach Pitch portion of River Road Park last night, which brought back memories of only a few short years ago when Steve Slucher and I coached the Cardinals. 

    In fact, last night the Cardinals were in one of the games I watched and they were still wearing the helmets that my daughter, Amanda, cleaned up and painted for us to use. 

    The Mudcats, Riley’s team, lost to the Cardinals in a good game where fun was had by almost all.
