  • ‘But he has been a model citizen...

    I had no clue how many people read my column. It’s kind of like Let’s Talk Sports on Saturday morning.  
    Patti can never figure out why people would listen to Ray and me, but too many people said something nice to her for her to deny it.  
    The same with the newspaper column. I had many people mention the little bit I put in last week about Mrs. Davis and it was all positive.  
    Of course, with Mrs. Davis it would have been hard to say otherwise, but people sometimes fool you.  

  • Sports beat

    43rd annual Harrison Co.
    Invitational Track Meet
    this Saturday
    Harrison County High School will host its annual invitational track meet this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. at the Harrison County Athletic Complex.  
    The coaches will meet at 9:45 a.m. with the field events beginning promptly at 10 a.m. At least 12 teams will be participating with many of the better area teams expected to contend for the titles.  

  • Thorobreds first, Fillies third...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies with their squads nearly in tact showed why they are considered contenders in the region this year with a fine performance at Scott County last Tuesday.  
    The Thorobreds raced to a big win over seven other opponents in winning the meet with nearly 60 points more than the closest competitor.  
    Harrison County brought home eight first place finishes, six seconds and 11 third place finishes in dominating the event.  

  • Fence of Fame honors

    This Friday night on the Hilltop, three of Harrison County’s baseball finest were honored with having their name added to the Harrison County Baseball Fence of Fame last week on the Hilltop. Mark Clifford, Lee Kendall and Kiley Vaughn will each become a member of the fence of honor.  
    The Fence of Fame honors former Breds baseball players and coaches for their outstanding contributions to the Breds baseball program.

  • Tennis squads lose close match...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies tennis teams continued the season Tuesday as they traveled to Campbell County to play the host Camel tennis squads.  
    The Fillies lost to the Lady Camels 1-4 as only the doubles team of Katie O’Neal and Bryson Clifford were able to get past the opponent.  
    They took out the Lady Camel’s duo of Baker and Clark 8-6.  
    Sara Barnett in No. 1 singles was close as she narrowly lost to Russell 4-8.  
    The Thorobreds were closer as they fell by a 2-3 score to the Camels.  

  • Breds fall in Winchester, rally...

    When a team’s starting pitcher goes the distance, striking out 10 batters and walking none, the chances of that team winning should be good.  
    That was not the case Thursday night in Winchester as the Harrison County Thorobreds lost to George Rogers Clark, 7-3.  
    The home-standing Cardinals gathered nine hits off Brandon Kendall and took advantage of four Thorobred errors as they scored their seven runs, four of which were earned.  

  • Fillies beat Walton Verona, romp...

    Thursday night the Harrison County Fillies visited northern Kentucky to play one of the better teams in the 9th Region, the Lady Bearcats of Walton Verona.  The No. 20 rated Lady Bearcats feature a veteran line up along with a talented sophomore hurler.  
    The Fillies started slowly with three of the first six batters striking out against the sophomore Hannah Thacker.

  • HCMS Soccer
  • Breds blank Nicholas County...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds continued to play well following the spring break trip as they defeated Nicholas County 3-0 Monday night in Carlisle and Bracken County 8-0 Tuesday on the Hilltop.
    The Nicholas County game featured two of the better hurlers in the region as juniors J.D. Wagoner for Nicholas County and Jordan Martin for Harrison County hooked up in a pitchers’ duel.  
    Neither team scored until the top of the fourth though the Thorobreds threatened in the top half of the first.
