The Harrison County tennis teams traveled north to Falmouth Tuesday to do battle with the girls and boys of Pendleton County.
The girls lost the match 2-3 with Sara Ledford winning 5-0 over Shoemaker in the number one singles match while Abby Cooper and Reagan Gorman took their doubles match over Rick and Miller 8-4.
Morgan Barker and Sabrina Goins dropped their singles matches while Faith Gant and Savannah Hedges lost a doubles match to Hughes and Hutchison of the Lady Cats.
A mixture of veterans and youth make up both the Thorobreds and Fillies tennis teams this season as Coaches Ron Markley and Austin Dacci start the 2014 season.
The Fillies have three seniors led by their number one singles player Bryson Clifford. Dacci expects Clifford to contend for the regional title and advance to the state tournament.
Clifford has been playing during the off season indoors and has honed her game well past last year.
I wanted to comment on the proposed parking lot, but I couldn’t find a way to make it a sports story so here we go with something else.
I sometimes forget how fanatical people get at this time of year when the pairings are announced for the NCAA tournament.
I realize that I have no dogs in the hunt since there are no Indiana schools in the tournament.
It would be hard to count the number of times that the good sports of the BBN have let me know this so it would be hard to not know it even if I was in or from Outer Mongolia.
The Harrison County boys and girls indoor track season wrapped up with the KTCCCA AA Indoor Track Championships in Mason County with some very good results.
It was incorrectly reported that the event was to be held in Louisville as part of the Mason Dixon Games.
The track in Louisville was condemned and Mason County stepped in and held the state championship meet on March 8, which was the first time in 50-plus years that it was not in Louisville.
Harrison County Coach Mac Whitaker picked up his 988th career win Saturday, but it wasn’t easy as his Thorobreds had to come from two runs down to defeat Grant County, 6-2.
The game was scoreless through the first three innings as Harrison senior hurler Nolan Brossart and Braves junior hurler Jason Goe were doing a masterful job on the mound.
Jordan Doram plays for victorious East Squad in all star game
Harrison County High School’s Jordan Doram was selected for and played in the East-West All Star Game Saturday in Bowling Green.
The all star game is part of the festivities around the state tournament, which was played in Diddle Arena with Butler of Louisville coming out of the championship game victorious over Elizabethtown.
D.J. Jenkins’ rousing last second shot to tie the game at halftime gave notice to Campbell County that the Harrison County Thorobreds were going to fight to the very last minute in the semi-finals of the 10th region tournament in Mason County Monday night.
“They came out hard and aggressive and we just couldn’t match up with them,” bemoaned Harrison County Coach Kim Furnish. “I have seen them play several times this year and they are getting better and better.”
