Today's Sports

  • Sometimes I think I have lived...

    As I have grown older, I have come to realize that many things that other people do and/or say do not suit me.  Most of these do not involve sports so I don’t say or write much about it because this column is supposed to be about sports.
    I began Sunday evening thinking that I was going to write about my trip to the last SEC game of the year for the University of Kentucky baseball Wildcats.

    Three HCHS athletes honored
    Three Harrison County High School athletes won honors during the last weeks, two in track and one in tennis.
    Haley Carr was named Fillies Athlete of the Month for April for her contributions to the Fillies track team. This award is voted on by the female athletes of the school and is presented each month to a deserving senior.
    Senior Jacob Markley was selected by the 10th Region tennis coaches to be awarded the Sportsmanship Award for the region. The coaches vote during the 10th Region Tournament.

  • Thorobreds 20-11 after wins over...

    A couple of 20 win seasons in a row is the goal of most programs in high school baseball, but that is not the case in Harrison County.  
    The Thorobreds won Friday night in Carlisle to reach 20 wins for the 34th season in a row.  
    The Breds won No. 19 at Scott High the night before and dusted the Bluejackets 17-4 Friday for the magic 20.

  • Score 'N' More
  • Clifford, Markley state...

    Bryson Clifford and Jacob Markley, seniors at Harrison County High School, will get a chance to compete for the tennis state championship next Thursday at the Hilary Boone Tennis Complex at the University of Kentucky.  The two each finished third in the region losing to the No. 1 seeds in the region on Monday afternoon.
    Clifford battled Meredith Laskey of Highlands losing 0-6, 0-6 in sets that were much more contested than the score might indicate.  

  • Fillies come from behind for 7-6...

    The Harrison County Fillies spotted the Nicholas County Lady Jackets a 6-1 advantage after two innings and then came back for a 7-6 win Monday in Carlisle.  
    The big district game was a rematch of the April 22 game in Cynthiana where the Lady Jackets took a one-run win.  
    Walks and hit batters were the downfall for the home squad as the two Nicholas County pitchers combined for seven walks and five hit batters.  
    The Fillies managed only six hits as it is hard to establish a hitting routine with so few strikes being thrown.  

  • Breds break four-game losing...

    Harrison County’s four-game losing streak came to an end Tuesday night in Flemingsburg as the Breds defeated the Panthers (6-17) by a 7-4 score.
    On Monday night in a pitcher’s duel, Harrison County lost its fourth straight game by a 2-1 margin to Mason County.
    Harrison County’s John King and Mason County’s Michael Sutton each pitched scoreless baseball for the first six innings.  

  • Harrison County wins girls, boys...

    The track teams seemed to be coming together at the right time.  
    At least, that seemed to be the case on Thursday as the Fillies and Thorobreds were winners in the nine-team All Comers Meet at the athletic complex.  
    The Fillies scored 126 points to runner up Nicholas County’s 89 as they won the meet.
    After the Fillies, the meet was close as Paris followed Nicholas County with 80 points and George Rogers Clark came next with 79.  
    Pendleton County, Bourbon County, Sayre, Scott County and Bracken County trailed the field.

  • Title IX 42 years later

    When Title IX was first introduced as a part of the Education Amendment of 1972, the NCAA and many other institutions of education began gnashing of teeth and protesting as to how it would be the ruin of sports as we knew them at the time.  
    You see, there would be no way that the schools could afford to have the same schedules, pay for coaches, number of scholarships, same types of facilities and more for the female and male athlete.
