  • 51st annual Joe Mooney...

    Saturday morning at 8 a.m. will be the official start for the 51st annual Joe Mooney Invitational, which features outstanding golfers from the surrounding area.  
    Dorothy Mooney will be there Saturday morning to usher the tournament in with 90-plus golfers teeing off with staggered tee times through out the morning and early afternoon.  

  • Cardinals edge Yankees with...

    The younger Cardinals hit the ball with authority and the whole team played good defense as they eased by the Yankees in Monday night Cal Ripken play.  
    Both teams entered the fray with 4-7 records and needed the win to get back on track for the season.  
    The Yankees scored first with a run in the top of the first on three walks and a ground out to second.  

  • Many events and so little time

    I know that time is a common problem for many sporting events as well as families that have children.  
    The problem is trying to be two places at one time or doing two events at once.
    I mentioned this in passing last week when I wrote about the track awards luncheon.  
    The number of athletes attending this luncheon was reduced significantly by basketball events for both boys and girls, soccer and baseball contests all going on at the same time or on the road.

  • A’s remain undefeated with 8-3...

    The A’s took their season record to 11-0 Friday night as they eased past the error-prone Cardinals, 8-3, in Cal Ripken action.  
    The A’s scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the first on a Jacob Craycraft single, a walk to Logan Cummins and an error by the Cardinal third baseman to take a lead they would never surrender.  
    Cummins pitched the complete game for the A’s allowing only one hit while walking eight Cardinals.  

  • Signing with Georgetown College
  • HCHS track holds post season...

    Coaches Danny Simpson and Robert Walker hosted the post-season awards program for the Fillies and Thorobreds track teams Saturday.  
    The event was held at the Harrison County Extension Office and featured a lunch before the ceremony.  Attendance was depleted some due to conflicting summer basketball, baseball and soccer events.  
    After lunch, Simpson began the program by thanking the track boosters especially Lesa Palmer, who heads up the group.  

  • Things I don’t understand

    I am constantly amazed by human behavior and how other people think and act on a daily basis as well as in sports.  
    This column will be dedicated to what I consider to be strange things in sports.
    A couple of the strange items happened Sunday night before and during the Reds visit to the Cubs at Wrigley Field.  
    First, the pregame lasted about 45 minutes, almost all of which talked about the resurgent Cubs and their “stars,” rookie Kris Bryant and first baseman Anthony Rizzo.
