  • Harrison County uses 4-run first to beat Wildcats 8-3 Tuesday

    The Harrison County Thorobreds began where they left off Monday night by striking for four runs on four hits, a sacrifice and a walk in the first inning Tuesday to defeat Pendleton County, 8-3.  
    The game, played on the Hilltop, saw the Wildcats bring a six-game winning streak into the contest. In fact, the last Wildcats’ loss was to Harrison County, 6-0, on April 1 in Falmouth.
    C.J. Claypool led off the bottom of the first with a single followed by a single by Brett Persinger, a sacrifice by Robbie Stroub and a two-RBI single by John King.

  • 1,000 wins, Thorobreds 11 Royals 1 in six innings

    It just wasn’t like every other night on the Hilltop.  
    There were extra people attending who cannot come to every game.
    The aura of some that have gone before was there even some who have left us and gone to the great reward.  Former players were there even players that did not play for Coach Mac Whitaker but wanted to be there for the milestone.  
    The game was decided for all practical purpose in the second inning as the Thorobreds scored two runs in each of the first two innings to lead 4-0.  

  • Alumni Night is Friday on the Hilltop

  • Poor turnout for P&Z meeting to discuss sign regulations

  • I find that I agree with Coach Calipari

    Often I am told on the street, at Biancke’s, and other places that people find that they agree with what I may have written or said on the radio and that the fact that they agreed with me frightened them a bit.  
    I guess I understand, although what I write or say makes perfect sense to me so it still baffles me somewhat that people may not agree with me.  
    Anyway, on Thursday morning when I was traveling to Crofton, Ky., and listening to Coach Calipari, I found myself agreeing with him which surprised me some though I wasn’t frightened.
