  • 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.

  • Breds enter district with 16-...

    The last time Harrison County lost a baseball game was April 19 at home against Scott High. 

    Since that time, the 28-4 Breds have won 16 in a row and look to add another district championship this week to the many they have already won. 

    An away game on Wednesday at Clark County and senior night on the Hilltop Thursday night closed out the regular season. 

    The Cardinals, who feature the second best record in the 10th Region, were on a two-game losing record coming into the game at 26-7 for the year.

  • Tennis wraps up season with...

    The Harrison County tennis teams finished up the season with first round wins and second round losses in the regional last week. 

    The boys’ singles had the Smith brothers, Charlie and Ross, each win a match and lose one. 

    Ross, by virtue of the draw, had a first round bye, won the second round 6-0, 6-0, but lost in the third round to the No. 2 overall seed Freyberger of Highlands.

  • Thorobreds win district 12-0 as...

    “We expect a performance like this when he takes the mound,” said Coach Mac Whitaker of Logan Dailey.  “He did a great job and the defense made some nice plays behind him. Hunter did a good job behind the plate, too.” 

    These remarks came after the Harrison County Thorobreds blanked the Nicholas County Bluejackets 12-0 in five innings in Carlisle Tuesday afternoon. 

  • Fillies claim Lady Eagle Classic...

    The Harrison County Fillies took a far superior won/loss record into the Lady Eagle Classic than did any of the other six competitors.  

     

    This time, the season records held significance as the Fillies swept four games and took home the championship of the Classic.  

     

    The records of the teams competing were Harrison County (23-5), Bath County (14-13), Lexington Christian (5-15), Menifee County (7-16), Raceland (16-14), Whitesville Trinity (8-15), and Whitley County (12-16).

  • How about those Reds

    If the season ended today (I am writing this on Monday), the Cincinnati Reds would be in first place in the National League Central Division. 

    This is as difficult to believe as it would be if the Cubs were in first. What is wrong with Dusty Baker? He has made several errors in judgment, batting the wrong guy, taking the pitcher out too soon or not soon enough etc; but wow not even Dusty has been able to derail this bunch of Red Legs.

  • Fillies take Senior Night win...

    The Harrison County Fillies improved their season record to 28-5 with a tense 5-4 win over Bracken County Tuesday night. 

    Seniors Michelle Carson, Lorraine Dennie, Rachel Hatfield and Kaitlyn Shepherd were honored at the game and each was able to contribute to the win. 

    This game was Hatfield’s return from her ankle injury in a pinch hitting role in the bottom of the fifth.

    The game was tied until the bottom of the third when Dennie led off with a double and scored on Carson’s senior night home run.

  • Thorobreds win Bulldog Classic...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds keep adding to Coach Mac Whitaker’s career-win total as they won the rain-shortened Bulldog Classic at Lawrence County on Saturday after routing the Paris Greyhounds Thursday on the Hilltop. 

    The Lawrence County Bulldog Classic featured the top teams in three regions as the Breds top the 10th region, Belfry and Lawrence County top the 15th and Boyd County along with Ashland head the 16th region.
