  • Baseball press box, fun and...

    I think for this week at least I will be less serious and try not to upset anyone with my column.  
    Hate mail is never any fun even if one expects to get it.   
    I will risk mentioning my high school alma mater though only because it leads into my thought for the day.  
    Last week I attended a high school baseball game in Tell City when I was traveling on business.  
    There were a couple of sharp contrasts between the game there and the games on the Hilltop, which I attend whenever I can to cover the Thorobreds.  

  • Harrison County track teams...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies track squads are doing well against good competition as the season shifts into high gear.  
    The Thorobreds have won three straight meets including the All Comers at the Athletic Complex on March 31 and the Rowan County Invitational held at Morehead State University last Saturday.
    The Fillies have also shown great promise finishing second in both meets.  

  • Thorobreds split games at home...

    Harrison County, Boone County and Louisville Male played a round robin affair on Friday and Saturday on the Hilltop in Cynthiana.  
    Boone County lost both of its games in the bottom of the seventh inning; the Breds split a pair and Male won two times to go home the overall winner.
    On Friday evening, the Thorobreds and Rebels faced off in what was anything but a pitcher’s dual.  
    Boone County gathered eight hits and nine runs while the Breds had 14 hits and 10 runs.  

  • Tennis teams battle Clark County...

    On Tuesday, March 29, the Harrison County tennis team traveled to Winchester to take on one of the region favorites in the George Rogers Clark Cardinals.  
    The final scores do not indicate the hard-fought matches as the Breds and Fillies showed some promise against the heavily favored Cards.  
    The Fillies lost by a 2-6 score though they were close in two matches.  
    No. 1 singles player Harley Sallee defeated the No. 1 Lady Card Kayla Harrison 8-5 to begin the afternoon, but the Fillies could only manage one more win for the day.  

  • Archers lead early, finish sixth...

    The Harrison County archery coaching staff was thinking of a potential state championship as the team scores came in early during the Kentucky State Archery Championships in Louisville on Saturday.  
    Like last year, Harrison County made the trip to Louisville in the early morning hours as they had the earliest flight, the tournament’s first, at 9 a.m.  

  • We should name the baseball field

    Now that basketball is over and the Volunteers aren’t playing on Summitt Court and the Oklahoma State Cowboys have shut down Sutton Court in Iba Hall, it is time for baseball.  
    A time when you drive on Pete Rose Way to get to a ball park and by a statue of Stan the Man to get to Mecca or Busch Stadium.  
    What’s my point with all of the names?  
    Out of all of these names on courts, stadiums and streets only one of these people is dead, that being Mr. Iba.  

  • Westside principal has special...

    When Jon Hoskins was growing up in Zionsville, Ind., he played all of the games in the back yard and driveway with the other boys in the neighborhood. Baseball, soccer, football and of course, living in Indiana, they played basketball.  
    Jon and his brother Bill and Bill’s best friend Brad Stevens, who lived nine houses away on South Maxwell, would always be involved in whatever game there was to be played on a particular day.  

  • Fillies lose two in Bracken...

    The Webber Farms/Bracken County Classic was good for the Harrison County Fillies in the past years. But the two-time defending champion Fillies were not blessed with a favorable schedule in this year’s tournament and lost two of three games.  
    The Fillies opened with an 8 p.m. start on Friday night against the eventual Classic winner Sacred Heart.  
    The Valkyries out of Louisville came in sporting a veteran team and a 4-2 record.
