  • Why do they play at Whitaker...

    All of us here in Harrison County are happy that the Thorobreds are once again where they belong, that is in the state tournament.  
    As I have often said about the Cardinals being in first in the central division of the National League it is their rightful place and the state tournament is Harrison County’s rightful place.  
    But why do they play at Whitaker Bank Park?

  • Kendall pitches Breds to region...

    Senior Brandon Kendall went the distance Tuesday night in pitching the Harrison County Thorobreds to an 8-1 semi final victory over Scott High in the 10th Region Championships.
    Kendall worked the seven innings allowing one run on six hits; striking out seven while walking three and hitting one batter.  
    Harrison County scored in the first when, with one out, Kendall hit a ball to right field which could have been caught but was missed by right fielder Seth Robinson for a two-base error.  

  • Breds roll into region...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds accomplished what Coach Mac Whitaker wanted, only just a little bit too fast.  
    After the opening region game with Bracken County, Coach Whitaker commented, “Jordan (Riley, starting pitcher) had everything going except his control, but we planned to use Nathan (Fryman) anyway to get some experience for him. I wanted to let Gus (Garrison) also get some time on the mound but we won the game too fast.”
    To be sure, Whitaker was happy to advance and if it was too early, so be it.

  • Fillies season ends with 7-3...

    The Harrison County Fillies saw the 2013 softball season come to an end Monday in Bourbon County as they lost a 7-3 verdict to the Lady Indians of Montgomery County.  
    The Fillies’ year ended with a 24-11 record as Montgomery County advanced with a 20-12 mark to play Campbell County on Tuesday.
    The Fillies reached the region opener by defeating the Nicholas County Lady Jackets (14-12) 14-4 in the district final at Pendleton County.  The Lady Jackets lost to Bishop Brossart in region play on Monday to also close out their season.

  • The merry month of May

    May signals the end of the school year and the beginning of summer with the unofficial start of summer, Memorial Day.  
    The end of school makes May the favorite month of many people, but that is not why it is one of my favorites.  
    May is the busiest sports month with baseball and softball wrapping up in high school, the college playoffs starting in both sports and the major league season getting into full swing.
