  • Violence in sports, how long...

    I spent Monday this week working in Indiana, which gives me a lot of time to listen to the radio while in the car.
    I listen mainly to sports radio but now and then will venture over to the news, which generally depresses me so I don’t listen for any long periods of time.
    Monday the news had quite a bit about the soccer official who was killed when an irate player hit him in the side of the head and killed him on April 27 in Utah.

  • Fillies error away Tuesday game...

    When your team outhits the opponent 13 to eight and your power hitter hits two home runs the chances of winning should be pretty good.  
    However, when your team makes nine errors in eight innings your fortunes probably won’t be as good.  
    That was the case Tuesday night for the Fillies as they traveled to Montgomery County and dropped a 7-6 verdict in eight innings.  

  • Fillies win McDonald’s Thorobred...

    The Harrison County Fillies won four times this weekend en route to the championship of the McDonald’s/Thorobred Sportswear Tournament.  Williamstown, Taylor County, Somerset, and the Lady Royals of Mason County were the worthy opponents of the Fillies and each came up on the short end of the score.  
    The tournament featured teams from four regions as the Grant County Lady Braves were also involved in the round robin style tournament.  

  • Breds runners up in HMH/...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds baseball team posted a modest three-game winning streak until the championship game of the Harrison Memorial Hospital/McDonalds Classic where they dropped a game that was very winnable to East Jessamine.  
    After defeating Bourbon County last Monday the Breds were rained out of the scheduled doubleheader with Robertson County on Wednesday so they were idle until they opened the Classic facing Madison Southern on Thursday evening.  

  • Spring football wraps up Friday...

    Coach Jim Carr has been pleased with many aspects of this year’s spring football at Harrison County High School.  
    Spring football is governed by the KHSAA as to length of practices and also how long the practices can be held during the off season.  
    The practices allowed are 10 two-hour practices which must be held over a 15-day period.  
    Middle schools may also hold practice but the athletes who are still in the eighth grade, though they will be freshmen next year, may not compete with the high school students.
