    Pitching was to be the strength of the Harrison County Thorobreds in 2016 along with team defense.  
    Hall-of-Fame coach Mac Whitaker was looking forward to welcoming back veterans on the mound and in the majority of the fielding positions.  
    Certainly the six seniors who graduated would be missed with catcher Robbie Stroub going to The University of the Cumberlands to join John King and starting pitcher Mark Taylor moving on to Lincoln Trail Community College.

    Coaches Austin Dacci of the Fillies and Ron Markley of the Thorobreds have different challenges facing them for the new tennis season.  
    Dacci lost three good senior players from last year’s squad in Casey Newcomb, Sarah Ruth Besson and Alycia Schaum.  
    Yet, Dacci’s 2016 Fillie’s tennis team figures to be in the top three or four teams in the 18-team region.

  • Some good ideas

    The basketball tournament is in the third week now and as a close observer I have some good ideas.  
    Most of the action surrounding a tournament other than the games themselves is orchestrated by the KHSAA with the local schools having some input through their athletic directors.  Here are some things that I would like to see regarding the tournaments.  
    I would like for the district to be held at the school that is the best equipped to run it, not just take turns because that is “fair.”
