    Last Wednesday the Harrison County Middle School Fillies completed an undefeated season and clinched the number one seed for the Bluegrass Conference tournament.  
    They defeated Grant County 10-0 in a match that saw the mercy rule implemented with just four minutes played in the second half.  
    Kylie Hudgins had four goals and two assists, Gab Hatterick had two goals and two assists, and both Molly Perkins and Reece Shirley added one goal and one assist.

    “Archie made me an offer that I couldn’t refuse,” was the explanation from Clif Marshall when asked about moving to Bloomington, Indiana to become the Director of Athletic Performance for Indiana University’s new basketball coach Archie Miller.  
    Marshall had previously worked with Miller’s Dayton Flyers during the 2015 season when the Flyers won the Atlantic 10 championship.

    The Harrison County track teams participated in a meet at Henry Clay last Tuesday and again in Lexington at Bryan Station on Saturday.  
    The Tuesday meet saw only a few Harrison County athletes participate to gain a needed meet requirement.  
    The Fillies did not score at Henry Clay and the Breds picked up eight points to finish 13th.

  • Why some names and not others

    When I write the sports news, I am often amused and confused about the nicknames and mascots of high schools and colleges.  
    Most, if not all of you, are aware of the politically correct crowds dabbling in making school mascots completely milk toast and bland so as not to offend the most sensitive whiner in the country.  
    They have failed miserably with this though they did manage to change Marquette University from the Warriors, which is in no way offensive, to the Golden Eagles. Yet, the Golden State NBA team is still the Warriors.

    The annual Alumni Night with the Fence of Fame presentations is scheduled for Friday night when the Breds face the Conner Cougars of the Ninth Region.  
    The Alumni Night festivities include former players participating in a modified home run derby and batting practice.  All former players are encouraged to come up and take a few swings.  Coach Mac Whitaker assures batters that pitches will be down the middle at a reasonable speed.

    It looked like the Fillies were going to give a gift to Montgomery County Tuesday night as they entered the seventh inning trailing 15-7.  The visiting Harrison County squad had committed seven errors in the first four innings of the game and allowed the host Lady Indians to score 13 runs with only five of them earned.
