  • Breds go to 2-0 with victory over Bishop Brossart Tuesday

    The friendly confines of the Hilltop saw senior pitcher Jordan Riley pitch perhaps his finest game as a Thorobred Tuesday as he sat down Bishop Brossart on four singles for a 5-2 Harrison County win.  
    Coach Mac Whitaker’s 989 career win came in typical Harrison County style except for a couple of errors that allowed an unearned run in the top of the second inning.  

  • Fillies fall in season opener to Lady Camels

    “We hit the ball hard, but right at them and didn’t get timely hits. We let too many bloop hits fall for them. It is just the first game and while I am not happy, I know the girls can improve and get a lot better.”  
    These were some of Fillies Coach Christine Garnett’s thoughts after Tuesday night’s 7-5 loss at the hands of Campbell County on the Lady Camels’ field.  
    While there were bright spots, too many routine plays got away from the Fillies that make the difference in winning and losing.

    Morgan Barker and Sabrina Goins dropped their singles matches while Faith Gant and Savannah Hedges lost a doubles match to Hughes and Hutchison of the Lady Cats.

    The Fillies have three seniors led by their number one singles player Bryson Clifford. Dacci expects Clifford to contend for the regional title and advance to the state tournament.  
    Clifford has been playing during the off season indoors and has honed her game well past last year.  

  • This is no parking lot story, but the best that I could do

    I wanted to comment on the proposed parking lot, but I couldn’t find a way to make it a sports story so here we go with something else.  
    I sometimes forget how fanatical people get at this time of year when the pairings are announced for the NCAA tournament.
    I realize that I have no dogs in the hunt since there are no Indiana schools in the tournament.  
    It would be hard to count the number of times that the good sports of the BBN have let me know this so it would be hard to not know it even if I was in or from Outer Mongolia.  

  • Track runners finish indoor season strong, begin outdoor at Woodford

    The Harrison County boys and girls indoor track season wrapped up with the KTCCCA AA Indoor Track Championships in Mason County with some very good results.  
    It was incorrectly reported that the event was to be held in Louisville as part of the Mason Dixon Games.
    The track in Louisville was condemned and Mason County stepped in and held the state championship meet on March 8, which was the first time in 50-plus years that it was not in Louisville.
