  • Tennis squads lose close match...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds and Fillies tennis teams continued the season Tuesday as they traveled to Campbell County to play the host Camel tennis squads.  
    The Fillies lost to the Lady Camels 1-4 as only the doubles team of Katie O’Neal and Bryson Clifford were able to get past the opponent.  
    They took out the Lady Camel’s duo of Baker and Clark 8-6.  
    Sara Barnett in No. 1 singles was close as she narrowly lost to Russell 4-8.  
    The Thorobreds were closer as they fell by a 2-3 score to the Camels.  

  • Breds fall in Winchester, rally...

    When a team’s starting pitcher goes the distance, striking out 10 batters and walking none, the chances of that team winning should be good.  
    That was not the case Thursday night in Winchester as the Harrison County Thorobreds lost to George Rogers Clark, 7-3.  
    The home-standing Cardinals gathered nine hits off Brandon Kendall and took advantage of four Thorobred errors as they scored their seven runs, four of which were earned.  

  • Fillies beat Walton Verona, romp...

    Thursday night the Harrison County Fillies visited northern Kentucky to play one of the better teams in the 9th Region, the Lady Bearcats of Walton Verona.  The No. 20 rated Lady Bearcats feature a veteran line up along with a talented sophomore hurler.  
    The Fillies started slowly with three of the first six batters striking out against the sophomore Hannah Thacker.

  • Breds blank Nicholas County...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds continued to play well following the spring break trip as they defeated Nicholas County 3-0 Monday night in Carlisle and Bracken County 8-0 Tuesday on the Hilltop.
    The Nicholas County game featured two of the better hurlers in the region as juniors J.D. Wagoner for Nicholas County and Jordan Martin for Harrison County hooked up in a pitchers’ duel.  
    Neither team scored until the top of the fourth though the Thorobreds threatened in the top half of the first.

    Mark Clifford, Lee Kendall and Kiley Vaughn will each become a member of the fence of honor.  
    “The Fence of Fame is our way of honoring former Breds baseball players and coaches for their outstanding contributions to the Breds baseball program,” said head Thorobreds Coach Mac Whitaker.

  • Fillies ease by Dunbar in eight...

    Tuesday night was a Fillies doubleheader made possible by wet fields on Monday night in Falmouth.
    Instead of playing the Lady Cats in Falmouth on that night the Pendleton County squad was the second half of a doubleheader Tuesday.  
    The first half of the doubleheader was a thriller as it went from a tie to a three-run deficit to a victory all in one inning.  
    The visiting Dunbar Lady Bulldogs scored in the top of the first on a one-out walk and an error to take a 1-0 lead.  

  • A visit with a wise person and...

    A few weeks ago Becky Martin from the Democrat staff called to let me know that a lady wanted my phone number in order to call me about how much she “liked” my articles.  
    Becky, suspecting that maybe liked wasn’t the right word, told the lady that she would give me the message.  
    I did return the call and believe it or not, she did like my columns.  

  • Errors, walks lead to 8-7 loss...

    Harrison County won one game of three in the Hanahan Invitational against some stellar competition last week.  
    The finale on Wednesday came against James Island, S.C., which resulted in an 8-7 loss for the Thorobreds.  
    Junior Brandon Kendall pitched for Harrison County and was in control for the first two innings allowing only one hit and two base runners.  
    In the top of the third, Harrison County put together four hits, a sacrifice, a walk and a James Island error to plate four runs to take the lead.
