  • HCHS Tennis splits with St....

    The Harrison County tennis teams were busy on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday playing matches with St. Patrick’s, Bourbon, Grant and Mason counties.
    Wednesday evening the Thorobreds rolled over the Saints of St. Patrick by a 3-0 score as the visitors forfeited two matches.  
    Luke Pawley defeated Evan Kalb 8-3 and Florian Caroff beat Logan Kalb 9-7 in the singles matches.  
    Luke Bradford and Austin Merriman defeated the Kalb duo 8-5 in the doubles competition.
    The Fillies lost to St. Patrick’s girls 2-3.  

  • 1,000 wins, Thorobreds 11 Royals...

    It just wasn’t like every other night on the Hilltop.  
    There were extra people attending who cannot come to every game.
    The aura of some that have gone before was there even some who have left us and gone to the great reward.  Former players were there even players that did not play for Coach Mac Whitaker but wanted to be there for the milestone.  
    The game was decided for all practical purpose in the second inning as the Thorobreds scored two runs in each of the first two innings to lead 4-0.  

  • Alumni Night is Friday on the...

    The annual Alumni Night will be held this Friday beginning at 5 p.m. on the Hilltop preceding the Harrison County Thorobreds hosting the Lewis County Lions, which begins at 7 p.m.  
    The Cynthiana-Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association will be there to greet each returning player as they return to the baseball field to reminisce and watch the current team do battle.  

  • I find that I agree with Coach...

    Often I am told on the street, at Biancke’s, and other places that people find that they agree with what I may have written or said on the radio and that the fact that they agreed with me frightened them a bit.  
    I guess I understand, although what I write or say makes perfect sense to me so it still baffles me somewhat that people may not agree with me.  
    Anyway, on Thursday morning when I was traveling to Crofton, Ky., and listening to Coach Calipari, I found myself agreeing with him which surprised me some though I wasn’t frightened.

  • Fillies spank Fleming County 10...

    After a slow start to the season the Harrison County Fillies won their sixth straight game Monday with a come-from-behind win over Fleming County.
    The Fillies spotted the Lady Panthers two runs in the second inning. They answered by scoring five times in the fourth inning and again in the sixth for the 10-3 win.
    Fleming County posted a single run in the seventh inning, but that was all they could muster.

  • Thorobreds drop third straight...

    Harrison County pitching walked seven, hit three batters and gave up nine hits in a 12-0 loss to South Laurel on Friday.  
    The Thorobreds also made four errors as they picked the wrong time to have a poor outing.  
    South Laurel came in with a 9-1 record and took control early scoring four times in the first and five more in the second inning.  
    Harrison County used seven pitchers with only Mark Taylor able to pitch effectively. The Cardinals’ sophomore Braden Miller allowed just three hits and a walk in the complete game effort.  

  • Track squads in two meets,...

    The Harrison County Fillies and Thorobreds were able, for the first time all season, to compete in two meets in one week along with having a full week of practice.  
    They competed in a nine-team meet Tuesday, April 8, in Woodford County and came back Saturday for a huge meet in Lexington at Tates Creek.  
    The Fillies finished third in the Woodford County event with junior Kassidy Cook winning both the 100M hurdles and the high jump. Cook also took fourth place in the long jump.
