  • 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. 

  • Track teams compete at Scott...

    The Harrison County track teams competed in two very competitive track meets last week and gave a good performance despite some trying circumstances. Illness and injury have hampered the squads as they approach the last week of the regular season. 

    This was a problem at the Scott County meet on Tuesday and again at Dunbar Saturday. 

    The Dunbar meet was also affected by the tragic loss of life of Brittany Cordray who was a classmate and friend of many of the athletes on both squads.

  • Thorobreds race past Mustangs...

    It was like the Kentucky Derby of baseball as the Harrison County Thorobreds and the Bishop Brossart Mustangs met in Alexandria Monday night. 

    One of the horses is still in the starting gate though as the Thorobreds smashed the Mustangs 19-2 in an abbreviated game. 

    Jared Martin pitched the five innings for Harrison County, allowing the two earned runs in the fourth on Bezold’s two run homer, striking out two, walking none and giving up six hits.

  • Fillies finish second in...

    The Harrison County Fillies saw their 13-game winning streak come to an end Friday night as they fell to the Conner Cougars (15-6) 3-1 in the opening game of the Woodford County Tournament. 

    But the loss may not be the worst thing that happened in this game. Senior shortstop and team leader Rachel Hatfield was carted from the field and taken by ambulance to the hospital with an injured ankle in the third inning with the Fillies trailing 1-0. 

    The complete nature of the injury is not known at this writing, but Hatfield missed the remainder of the tournament.

    Fillies clinch region berth with win over Nicholas County

    The Harrison County Fillies clinched a berth in the 10th region tournament with a win at Nicholas County Thursday night. 

    The win clinched the first-round bye in the three-team district and means the Fillies will be in the region tournament, which they host at Shirley Field beginning May 31. The Fillies gathered 10 hits, three walks and took advantage of four Lady Bluejacket errors to score the seven runs. Senior Kaitlyn Shepherd had four hits to lead the Fillies.

  • Royalty takes to the track

    Brian Royalty of Cynthiana simply overpowered the field to win the 30-lap feature for the Bee Creek Recycling Late Model Series at Corbin Speedway on Saturday evening, May 8.

    Royalty started on the outside of the front row for the main event, beat polesitter Gregg Carby of Lexington into the first turn at the drop of the green flag and was in control for the rest of the way.

    Russell Smith of Williamsburg managed to move past Carby for second place in the third and fourth turns on that first lap, but was unable to closely challenge Royalty.

     

  • Tennis teams dominate Bourbon Co...

    Last week was a busy week for the Harrison County tennis team as they played matches Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. 

    Bourbon County was the first opponent and both the boys and girls beat the Colonels. 

    The boys won all nine matches: six singles and three doubles contests. 

    The girls had a little more difficulty winning three of the six singles and sweeping the two doubles matches.
