  • Playoff determines Cynthiana...

    The Cynthiana Country Club Member/Member Tournament sponsored by Bank Trust went to a playoff before the team of Jim Fuller and Gary Philpott were able to grab the championship.  
    In an unusual development, Philpott was unable to return for the playoff and Fuller took on the duo of Gary Varner and Bob Whitaker for the title.  
    All involved shot par on the first hole before Fuller birdied the second to win the match.  

  • Stay in your car

    Personal responsibility and the need for it was never more apparent than a few weeks ago in Canandaigua, New York, when NASCAR star driver Tony Stewart hit and killed Kevin Ward Jr. during a sprint car race on a dirt track.  
    What led up to the accident and the accident itself has been widely talked about. There has been wild speculation sometimes out weighing the facts from the tragic accident.  
    What is almost certain is that Stewart’s car hit the back of Ward’s sending it into the barrier knocking the youthful driver out of the race.

  • Sports beat

    Fillies end 16 strokes better than Bourbon County
    The Harrison County Fillies only had three players available for Monday’s match with the Bourbon County Lady Colonels, but that was enough. The girls rolled to a 160-to-176 win at the Cynthiana Country Club.  
    Sarah Holland led the way with a nine-hole total of 46 with Sarah Durbin following with 52 and Morgan Nelly with 62. The rain-soaked course did not allow for much roll on drives, which elevated the scores on the drizzling afternoon.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Breds play Alumnus to shoot out...

    The alumni team was probably the youngest team ever to participate in the annual Thorobreds vs. Alumni soccer match and they made things really difficult for the 2014 Harrison County Thorobreds.  
    The alumni, coached by Charles Honeycutt, was made up of Stephen McCauley, John McCauley, Jordan Gasser, Kyle Foster, Taylor Bolin, Ben Anness, Cody Honeycutt, Hank Whalen, Jordan Kellione, Matt Mastin, Josh Young, Anthony Shirley, Tyler Feeback, Brandon Watkins, Richard Crowdy, Jeffrey Faulkner, and Joey Faulkner.  

  • Golfers have busy week, rained...

    The Harrison County golf teams have been busy playing and dodging the rain during the past week.  
    Sarah Holland began play with a solo performance in the George Rogers Clark Invitational on Sunday, Aug. 3, where she shot an outstanding round of 84 to finish in a tie for ninth place in this large tournament.
    On Monday, the Fillies played as a team in the CKC Tournament on the course at the Montgomery County Country Club.  The Fillies were seventh of the 10 teams playing shooting a 420 team score.  

  • Fillies battle Cougars in...

    The northern Kentucky schools are usually tough competition in soccer and the Conner Cougars were no exception Saturday when they faced the Harrison County Fillies.  
    The veteran Conner girls scored three goals before the Fillies could settle down. They won the scrimmage match 3-1 in the Pendleton County Soccerama.  
    The Cougars, who dressed seven seniors and seven juniors, attacked early and often in the first 25 minutes of the scrimmage before the Fillies showed some defensive organization and held them at bay.

  • Let’s let everyone play

    It seems like each week I need to comment on something before I get into my topic and this week is no exception.  
    The University of Kentucky’s basketball scrimmages being played in the Bahamas has a real local flavor.  
    All six games will be officiated by Harrison County natives John Hampton, Brent Hampton and Bart Lenox.  The three began their “tough” assignment Sunday and will finish this Sunday.
