  • Breds close regular season...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds finished the regular season last week with two games on Wednesday and one on Friday as they headed into district play, which opened Monday.
    Region opponent Bishop Brossart was the first opponent on Wednesday as the Mustangs brought a good 19-11 record to the Hilltop.  
    Senior Justin Nutter went the seven innings for the Breds allowing eight hits and three runs (no earned runs) in the Thorobreds’ 10-3 win.  

  • Thorobreds win track region,...

    While qualifying 12 individuals and three relays for this Friday’s KHSAA state meet the Harrison County Thorobreds won the Class AA, Region 4 Meet Saturday outdistancing Lexington Catholic 126 to 108.  
    Covington Catholic was third with 76 points but the meet came down to a two-team battle for the biggest part of the day.  In fact, with the 4 x 400 relay and the triple jump remaining the score was tied between the two rivals.  

  • Breds win Senior Night battle...

    Six senior Harrison County baseball players and two stat girls were feted before the game Tuesday night as the Thorobreds hosted Campbell County on Senior Night.  
    Xavier Carter, Jeffrey Faulconer, Hunter Hill, Paul Jones, Justin Nutter and Josh Young were given commemorative baseball bats in honor of their senior year with the Thorobreds as well as scholarships from the Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association.  
    The stat girls, Abby Besson and Katelin Martin were given plaques in recognition of the service they have given to the program.  

  • Fillies close home season with...

    The Harrison County Fillies sent their three seniors off in style Monday night as they rolled past the Paris Lady Hounds, 9-2, on Shirley Field.  
    Seniors Lucinda Boyers, Tracey Hicks and Emalee Little were honored before the game on Monday.  
    Hicks then set the Paris girls down in order in the top of the first striking out two batters.  She then led off the Fillies’ half inning with a single and scored on Ashley Coppage’s double to give her team the lead.  

  • It’s a free country

    After a week off from Mike’s Minute I want to cover a couple of things in this one article.
    First, Harrison County lost one of its really good people last week when Gerald Reffett passed away at the young age of 61. I knew Gerald through his good wife Connie who played a role in the upbringing of our two daughters during their time in high school.  
    Connie was an assistant coach when Larry Allison was the Fillies’ basketball coach and both of the girls were involved either as a player (Amanda) or manager (Meghan).

  • Fillies rout Pendleton County 20...

    Thursday in the last district game before the tournament, the Harrison County Fillies defeated the Pendleton County Lady Cats 20-0 in three innings at Shirley Field.  
    Kecia Stephens pitched the three-inning affair for Harrison County allowing only two hits, hitting one batter and striking out three.  
    The Fillies gathered 14 hits in three innings with Coach Christine Garnett resting almost every starter after the first inning.

  • Kendall named new basketball...

    After 39 years of coaching, Harrison County basketball Coach Mike Reitz has retired.  Reitz’ retirement announcement came last Wednesday and by Friday Larry Kendall was named head coach.
    Kendall has served as an assistant coach for 17 years in the Harrison County system beginning with Mike Reitz in 1995-96 until 2001-2 when brother Lee Kendall took over as head coach.  
    Lee Kendall resigned in 2006-07 and Reitz came back through the past year with Larry Kendall as assistant for each of these seasons.

  • Breds losing streak at three

    Assistant coach Eddie Feeback said it quite well in a post game interview after the 13-3 loss to Madison Central Saturday night: “We don’t know what to do just yet to fix our hitting problems,” lamented Feeback. “We work on different issues in practice, but somehow the players revert back to the old way in the games. We will keep working until we get it right.”
    Friday night the Cooper Jaguars came to the Hilltop to begin the Hometown Pharmacy/Frank Shoop Classic with a 6-18-1 record and a five-game losing streak.
