  • Sunday: A day of rest

    I am disappointed to learn that the softball and baseball district tournament is going to be played next Sunday afternoon in both Carlisle and Falmouth.  
    The disappointment has nothing to do with where the games are being played, but the day that they are playing.  
    Sunday used to be for church attendance and a day of rest. Many of us can remember when games of all kinds except for professional were not played on Wednesday because that was prayer meeting night.

    The Harrison County Elementary and Middle School archery teams wrapped up the season with the 2016 NASP Nationals Thursday in Louisville.  
    The Harrison County Middle School team finished with a team total of 3,056, which ranked them 179 of 206 teams.

    The Class AA, Region 4 Track and Field Meet will be held this Friday in Pendleton County at the Phillip Sharp Middle School track.  
    The participants will be Bourbon County, Franklin County, Harrison County, Ft. Thomas Highlands, Holmes, Lexington Catholic, Pendleton County, Scott, and Western Hills. The teams from Region 4 have historically dominated the AA State meet and, according to posted times and performances, this appears to the case again this year.

    The Harrison County Thorobreds defeated Prestonsburg and East Carter but lost to Perry County Central in the Bill Orme Classic in Powell County Friday and Saturday.
    On Friday the 13th, the Black Cats of Prestonsburg brought a 20-9 record to the Powell County High School field to take on the Breds.  
    Junior Nathan Fryman allowed only one hit while striking out 10 and walking only one in a masterful performance against the hard-hitting 15th-Region power.

    Last Wednesday, the Harrison County Fillies tuned up for this past weekend’s Charger Classic by handing the Lady Bears of Bracken County a 15-1 loss on Shirley Field.  
    Macy Martin had a home run, a triple and four RBI to lead the Fillies.  
    Jami Davis pitched the five-inning game, giving up two hits and an unearned run.  Bracken County fell to 4-19 with the loss.

    Macy Martin hit two home runs, a double and a single while driving in seven runs to lead the Harrison County Fillies to a 22-5 rout of Nicholas County Monday in Carlisle.  
    The 38th District match up finalized the district tournament pairings for Sunday’s battle in Falmouth.  
    Like they did during the Charger Classic over the weekend, the Fillies jumped out to an early lead and just piled on for the five-inning verdict.

    The Harrison County Middle School soccer Fillies played last Tuesday in the finals of the Bluegrass Conference against Royal Springs.  
    The Fillies defeated Royal Springs 1-0 in the regular season but it was a real battle.  
    The championship game was again a battle and much more as the two teams fought to a second round of penalty kicks to decide the winner.
