  • Breds advance in district 18-3...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds sent 24 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first Monday night on the way to an 18-3 walloping of Robertson County.  
    Harrison County struck for eight base hits, drew four walks, had five batters hit by a pitch while Robertson County committed five errors in the first inning.  
    The first four batters in the Harrison County half of the inning were hit by a pitch.  
    Coach Mac Whitaker played 21 players in the five-inning game, using five pitchers to subdue the Robertson County hitting attack.  

  • Tennis players compete in state...

    Bryson Clifford and Jacob Markley were each eliminated in the first round of the state tennis competition, but not before each played well against top competition.  
    Clifford faced off with Corbin’s Caroline Reedy and battled her way only to drop each set 6-3, 6-3.
    Markley’s opponent, Adam Slone of Lexington Christian, handled the Union College-bound senior, 6-1, 6-0, in sets in which the score does not tell the story of how difficult each point was to score.  

  • Fillies carry losing streak into...

    The Harrison County Fillies will bring a 16-15-1 record into 38th District play Tuesday following a Friday night loss to Lexington Catholic, 9-6, and three losses in the Estill County round robin Saturday.  
    The likely opponent in Tuesday’s 8 p.m. start district championship game will be 13-15 Nicholas County.  
    The Lady Jackets will first play 4-20 Pendleton County and be heavy favorites to dispatch the Lady Cats.

  • Thank goodness for volunteers

    After every track meet that is held in the athletic complex, Coach Danny Simpson always writes to me that he and Coach Robert Walker want to thank all of the parents and volunteers without whom the meet would have been very difficult to have.  
    This made me think of all of the volunteers that we have around our county in the sports world.
    Volunteer coaches come in many different styles.  

  • Score 'N' More
  • Breds breeze in Senior Night...

    Harrison County made Senior Night successful Monday with a 10-3 defeat of Franklin County on the Hilltop.  
    The evening began with the recognition of six seniors, five players and one stat girl. Stat girl Audrey Ramsey joined senior players Nolan Brossart, John King, Christian Persinger, Jordan Riley and Zach Royce on the field for the pregame ceremony and after the game for a reception.
    Franklin County and Harrison County had matched up only 11 days ago on the Flyers’ field with Franklin County winning by a 6-2 score.  

  • Plans made for Hall of Fame...

    The Cynthiana/Harrison County Baseball Alumni Association has two events coming up in June.
    On Saturday, June 14, a trip is planned for Alumni Association members and guests to a Legends game in Lexington with game time at 7:05 p.m.  
    Each person provides their own transportation for the trip, which will feature seats on the third base line and group recognition.  Ticket cost is $9 each.

  • Fillies split four games, host...

    The Harrison County Fillies lost to Henry Clay Thursday, 11-6, in nine innings and then went on the road Friday, Monday and Tuesday to win two of three.
    The Henry Clay game was tight throughout with the two teams trading the lead until the second extra inning.  
    The Lady Blue Devils (14-8) rallied with five runs for the win.
    The Fillies took an early lead facing Somerset when Sydney Motell singled with two outs in the first, Courtney Newsom doubled and Macy Martin singled to drive in Motell for a 1-0 lead after one inning.  

  • Breds third, Fillies fourth in...

    The weather Saturday mirrored the 2014 season as the Region 4, Class AA track meet was delayed for 90 minutes due to rain and lightning. Thanks to hard work of the coaches and volunteers, a quality event was staged.
    Highlands defeated defending champion Lexington Catholic in the girls’ meet by a narrow 154-to-147 margin.  Western Hills had 84 points to finish third follow closely by Harrison County with 80 points.  
    Franklin County, Scott, Holmes, Pendleton County and Bourbon County also competed though neither the Lady Cats nor Lady Colonels scored.
