  • Case, Feeback lead Breds to win...

    It may or may not be a cliché, but coaches, seemingly since the beginning of time, are fond of saying that teams are only as strong as their seniors.

    Last Wednesday, the Harrison County Thorobreds got strong play from two of their seniors, defeated Beechwood in the second game of their best-of-three series, 3-0, and advanced to their second straight “Elite Eight,” this week at Applebee’s Park in Lexington.

  • Grid Breds progressing nicely

    For the second straight year, spring football practice for the Harrison County Thorobreds proved to something less than spectacular.

    Last year, Ray Graham was on his way to retirement and new coach Aaron Stepp was not yet on board to take the reins. This year, Stepp resigned to accept the head coaching position at Franklin County and the next “new” coach, Mark Carroll was not yet hired.

  • Burley Belles Tournament next...

    The 42nd Annual Burley Belles Golf Tournament, one of the oldest and most respected women’s golf tournaments in the state, will be held at the Cynthiana Country Club next Wednesday and Thursday.

    Cynthia Powell will be seeking to defend her title from 2008, and add to her already impressive resume of 10 Burley Belles championships. Last year, Powell carded a two day total of 138 (68, 70) to finish six under par and easily outdistance second place finisher Anne Combs (146)

  • Lion’s, Kiwanis tie...

    On Tuesday night, everything was, and was not, settled as the Little League regular season came to end at River Road Park.  Lion’s Club and Kiwanis both finished the year with eye-popping 16-2 records.

    Both teams will get byes into the second round in the post-season tournament that got started last night.

    Last night, the four teams that finished seventh thru 10th in the regular season standings, played each other in two “play-in” games. Tonight, the eight remaining teams will play four games to determine the tournament semi-finalists.

  • Oldham seeks repeat at CCC

    University of Kentucky golfer Derek Oldham will attempt to win his second consecutive Men’s Invitational Golf Tournament this weekend at the Cynthiana Country Club.         

    Oldham, a senior-to-be in the coming school year, outlasted five-time winner Bart Lenox last year in the tournament by two strokes.

    “The Cynthiana Country Club is a fun course to play,” said Oldham on Tuesday night. “I know Bart and Mike (Lenox) well and enjoy playing with them.”

    Future Fillies Volleyball Camp

  • Fillies fall to Montgomery

    The winningest season in the history of Harrison County High School fast-pitch softball came to an end last week as the Fillies dropped a 6-2 decision to host Montgomery County in the semi-final round of the 10th Region Tournament.

    Harrison County, the home team on the scoreboard, surrendered two runs in the top of the first inning, and could never get their offense untracked against two Lady Indian pitchers.

  • Tennis, basketball awards...

     The Harrison County High School tennis teams had their end-of-season awards banquet on Friday night.              

    Co-coaches Betsy Clyde and Phyloss Ross handed out several awards to the Fillies and Thorobreds.

    The Bred Award and Fillie Award were voted on by team members and went to the boy and girl player who best exemplified qualities of leadership, sportsmanship and team play. Miranda Turk received the award for the girls while Ross Smith and Cody Landrum shared the award for the boys.
