  • Thorobreds rally falls short...

    When the Covington Scott Eagle players woke up Tuesday morning they probably pinched themselves to see if what happened Monday night was a dream. 

    After all, they had played in Harrison County against the powerful Thorobreds, who were 12-3 while they had a 6-10 season record, and Harrison County hardly ever loses at home. 

    Well, it wasn’t a dream as Scott High rolled to the Hilltop Monday afternoon and took home an 8-7 victory over Harrison County. 

  • Track teams participate in two...

    The Harrison County track teams ran into some tough competition in the Scott County all comers meet Tuesday, April 13. 

    This meet was one day after the teams returned from spring break and the rust was apparent. On top of the lay off, the teams participating were some of the area’s best, which led to the Thorobreds and Fillies not scoring as well as hoped.  Despite the rustiness, the Fillies finished third in the girls’ competition which had 10 teams trying for points.

  • Thorobreds hit four home runs in...

    Harrison County improved to 13-4 Tuesday night with a 10-5 home victory over the Bourbon County Colonels. 

    The Colonels entered the fray with a 13-4 mark of their own and with Harrison County on a two-game losing streak, figured to give the Breds a real tussle.

    Harrison County Invitational

    Track Meet Saturday

    The 41st annual Harrison County Invitational Track Meet is this Saturday beginning at 10 a.m.

    The field for this meet always contains the most promising athletes in the central and north central part of the state in nearly every event.

  • Fillies take extra inning...

    The setting was much like a district or region game on the Hilltop at Shirley Field Thursday night. 

    Paul Laurence Dunbar brought a misleading 5-5 record in to face the 8-2 Fillies in a key contest for both teams.   

    A key contest for Harrison County because it was a good measuring stick to see where they stood in comparison to the state’s better programs, and key for Dunbar to bounce back from a disheartening defeat at the hands of the best team in Lexington, the Lafayette Lady Generals by a narrow 4-0 score. 

  • Little League season: A time for...

    Saturday marks the beginning of the 2010 Little League season in Harrison County at the River Road Park. All teams are scheduled to play and, weather permitting, will start the season off with a bang. 

    I will be watching with great interest the plight of the Auto Systems team since our oldest grandson, Hayden is playing on that team.

    The other two grandsons are in coach pitch so that too will be a regular destination.  That is unless the princess CeCe decides that we don’t need to go, but that too is another story.

    Thursday at the

    Harrison Co. Athletic Complex

    The Harrison County track Fillies and Thorobreds will host a nine-team all comers meet Thursday at the new complex on the Hilltop. Participating in the meet will be Nicholas County, Bracken County, Campbell County, Carroll County, Bryan Station, Scott County, Pendleton County, Paris and the host Harrison County. 

    This will be another step toward preparing the boys’ and girls’ squads for the upcoming tough Harrison County Invitational as well as the region and state meets.

  • Lee Greenwood could write this...

    Remember the Lee Greenwood anthem “God Bless the USA?” 

    I’m singing now, but you can’t hear it: “I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free.” 

  • Fillies skin Wildcats Tuesday...

    The Harrison County Fillies got back on the winning track Tuesday night with a 17-0 beating of the Pendleton County Wildcats.

    The game was the first pitching victory for senior Rachel Hatfield as she no-hit the home team in five innings. For the game, she gave up six walks and struck out 12 with only one ball hit fair by Pendleton County. That was a ground ball to second base which resulted in an out. 

  • Tennis squads close at Campbell...

    The Harrison County tennis team hit the road immediately after returning from spring break visiting Campbell County on Monday and Paris on Tuesday night. 

    They were unable to win either of the matches, which now brings the season record to 3-3 with a trip to Pendleton County on Wednesday and a home match with St. Pat on Thursday still to come this week.

    Campbell County’s match started off on a positive note as No. 1 singles player Ross Smith bested Russell of Campbell 6-3, 6-2 in the first match.
