    Last week the Harrison County Thorobreds wrestlers traveled to Taylor County, Frankfort and Fern Creek, on consecutive days, and fared very well.   
    On Wednesday at  the Taylor County Duals, the Breds defeated Henry Clay 49-30, Taylor County 39-30 and McCreary Central 52-29.  Brent Hudgins was 3-0 in the meet.

    The Harrison County Fillies improved their season mark to 8-2 with three hard fought wins in the Jack Burford Chevy Christmas Classic in Richmond last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  The Fillies were one of two teams in the 10-team tournament to go undefeated.  
    The host school, Madison Central (5-5) also was 3-0 defeating Frederick Douglas (4-7), Menifee County (6-3) and Belfry (7-4).

  • We need girls’ softball fields,...

    Last week I put an article into the paper going over the plans for some adventuresome softball people that plan to raise funds to build a softball park for girls’ softball.  
    I think it is a good idea but what are the chances this will happen?  
    There are many obstacles in the way some of which should not be obstacles but probably will be anyway.

  • The joys of coaching

    I sat down beside Harrison County’s basketball coach Larry Kendall Saturday night before the Harrison County junior varsity played Anderson County.  
    The Thorobreds are currently 1-6 (1-5 at that time) and Larry has a lot on his mind.  He did not discuss with me any of what I am going to write but I have seen coaches in his predicament many times and it is not a good feeling.  
    The season is not lost but when you look down the road, not a lot of “certain wins” are staring you in the face.

    The Harrison County bowling teams visited Danville Saturday to compete in the Boyle County Baker Bonanza.  
    The Fillies came away as the tournament champions after winning 14 Baker matches by a large score.  Harrison County was top-seeded after the preliminary round.  They soundly defeated number four seed Taylor County in the semi-finals in three games and then dispatched Apollo in the championship game in four games.

    The Harrison County girls’ softball project has entered a philanthropic partnership with the Bluegrass Community Foundation to seek donations for community development of the construction of three youth softball fields in Harrison County.  The parks would be at Flat Run Veterans Park. 
    During the past four years the group states that they have watched the local youth girls’ softball league grow tremendously with 2017 seeing 135 girls participating.
