    Monday night the Harrison County Thorobreds dropped their second game of the year when three errors, a walk and a base hit led to four runs in the top of the seventh inning to hand Nicholas County a 6-5 win.  The game was played on the Hilltop though originally scheduled to be in Carlisle.  
    Chris O’Neal went seven innings for the Breds allowing seven hits and just two earned runs.

    The Bourbon County Lady Colonels second baseman sophomore Kaylyn Barnett led off the game Tuesday on Shirley Field with a home run and it was down-hill from there for the Harrison County Fillies.  
    The 1-4 Fillies were pummeled 16-0 on the night in a game where when they did have scoring opportunities fate seemed determined to not let them score.

    Coach Kevin Gaunce saw a match that was dominated by his team Tuesday night in Versailles, but the Harrison County Middle School Fillies lost 2-1.  Woodford County had only four shots on goal in the first half but went into the break with a 2-0 advantage.  
    The second half was more of the same.  The home squad did not have a single shot on goal but held off the determined Fillies for the 2-1 victory.

    The Harrison County High School tennis Fillies won their second sweep of the season but the Breds lost a close match to Campbell County on the Hilltop, Monday.  
    On a cool, cloudy day the players braved the elements and battled the visitors from the north on the courts at HCHS.

  • It is good to be home

    Vacation is nice but being home is always better even though our weather makes it less appealing.  
    I thought that I was entered in a NASCAR race coming home from Florida including some big backups in which I assumed that someone was black flagged.  As you know if you travel I-75 the speed limit appears to be a suggestion and not one that is taken seriously.  
    I did see a couple of vehicles trading paint as they say but other than that the 900-mile race home in one day was uneventful.

    Boyle County and Ryle pummeled Harrison County pitching for 22 hits and 24 runs in games played on Shirley Field, Friday.  The Fillies managed 15 hits in the two games but fell behind early in both and could not overcome the deficits.  
    Harrison County hoped to pull out a win over the Boyle County team that eliminated them in last year’s state tournament.  But the Lady Rebels scored 14 times in the first four innings to defeat the Fillies 14-2.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team remained undefeated in Kentucky as they improved to 5-1 defeating both Grant County and Pendleton County last week on the Hilltop.  In both games the Breds had double digit base hits and committed only one error.
    In Friday’s first game the Grant County Braves rolled onto the Hilltop with a 3-0 record having outscored their opposition 30-12 in the first three games of the season.

    University of Kentucky announces Summer Baseball Camp schedule
    There will be four separate Wildcat Baseball Camps, which are open to all children enrolled in first through eighth grades.
    There will be both full-day and half-day camp options offering the opportunity for each camper to develop his baseball skills in a fun and positive learning experience.
    The UK staff will teach each player baseball fundamentals, drill work specifically designed to improve each camper’s offensive and defensive skills, and also simulated game situations.

  • We need warm weather, please

    My apologies for the paucity of sports this week. In filling in for the vacationing Mike Aldridge, I failed to realize that all my sports contacts have somehow disappeared.
    I was on the Hilltop on Saturday, and saw the first inning of the Fillies softball game against Menifee County.  Harrison County scored 16 runs in the first inning and wound up winning 20-0.
    I tried to find information on who did what in that game, just because everyone likes to see their name in the paper, especially when it’s good stuff that goes in there.
