  • 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.

    Track teams finish sixth
    at Bryan Station meet
    The Fillies and Thorobreds track teams finished sixth at the Bryan Station All Comers Track Meet last Wednesday in Lexington.  
    Spring break and illness hampered the squads greatly as both were a shadow of their former selves. Neither team won an event but Fillies hurdler Haley Carr did grab a second in the 100M hurdles. Taylor Fry continued to perform well as she was third in the 1600M run in 5:54.18. Carr was also fourth in the 300M hurdles and freshman Mia Lail was fourth in the 100M hurdles.

  • Fillies finish road tip with...

    The Harrison County Fillies lost a 2-1 contest at Todd County Monday coming home from the spring break tournament in Tennessee.  
    The Lady Rebels (5-15) scored a run in the first and second and held off the Fillies to win the closely played contest.  
    “Too many walks and errors,” bemoaned Coach Christine Garnett as the Fillies hurlers gave up five free passes and hit one batter while the defense committed three errors behind them.

  • Breds open Hanahan Tournament...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds took advantage of a solid pitching performance by junior Jordan Martin and four extra base hits to defeat Chardon, Ohio, 3-2, in the Hanahan Invitational in South Carolina.  
    Martin went the seven-inning distance allowing seven hits while striking out six and walking two.  
    Harrison County scored two runs in the top of the first on a single by Xavier Carter, a sacrifice and back-to-back doubles by Brandon Kendall and John King.  

  • Fillies split four games in...

    “It was a good experience for the girls to play in a tournament atmosphere and hopefully they learned from it,” remarked Fillies head softball coach Christine Garnett following the last of four games in Clarksville, Tenn., over the weekend. “I saw some fight in our girls. We were down early in a couple of games and they fought back each time.”
    The Fillies started the tournament facing West Creek, Tenn.
