    The Cynthiana Harrison County Recreation Department held its season-ending softball tournament with the Knockouts coming out on top, defeating Crush 10-9 in extra innings.  The Knockouts came from behind twice late to secure the win.

    The Bluegrass Storm 10U girls’ softball team finished as state runners up in the 2017 Kentucky Recreational State Tournament this past weekend in Georgetown.  
    Team members are Alyssa Hall, Baylee Hudgins, Owyn McCoy, Shyanne Ross, Allison Dye, Hayden Lunsford, Emma Hamm, Bella Persinger, Lynex Cummings, Samantha Furnish, Madison Delong, Skylar Turner, Kira Spalding, and Desiree Couve’.

    If you are a fan of golf the Cynthiana Country Club would have been a good place for you to be last Friday and Saturday.  Except for the absence of Anne Combs and Laurie Goodlett, the field for the Burley Belles had most of the better golfers in central Kentucky.  
    But the heat pushed the scores up for many of the women who played much better on Friday than Saturday.  Some did not play better on Friday but the majority did.
