  • A’s remain undefeated with 8-3...

    The A’s took their season record to 11-0 Friday night as they eased past the error-prone Cardinals, 8-3, in Cal Ripken action.  
    The A’s scored two unearned runs in the bottom of the first on a Jacob Craycraft single, a walk to Logan Cummins and an error by the Cardinal third baseman to take a lead they would never surrender.  
    Cummins pitched the complete game for the A’s allowing only one hit while walking eight Cardinals.  

  • Signing with Georgetown College
  • HCHS track holds post season...

    Coaches Danny Simpson and Robert Walker hosted the post-season awards program for the Fillies and Thorobreds track teams Saturday.  
    The event was held at the Harrison County Extension Office and featured a lunch before the ceremony.  Attendance was depleted some due to conflicting summer basketball, baseball and soccer events.  
    After lunch, Simpson began the program by thanking the track boosters especially Lesa Palmer, who heads up the group.  

  • Things I don’t understand

    I am constantly amazed by human behavior and how other people think and act on a daily basis as well as in sports.  
    This column will be dedicated to what I consider to be strange things in sports.
    A couple of the strange items happened Sunday night before and during the Reds visit to the Cubs at Wrigley Field.  
    First, the pregame lasted about 45 minutes, almost all of which talked about the resurgent Cubs and their “stars,” rookie Kris Bryant and first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

  • Fillies Soccer Camp
  • Score 'N' More
  • Harrison County soccer girls do...

    Club soccer is equivalent to AAU for basketball players and several of the Harrison County Middle School and High School players have participated this off-season to date.
    The U-17 Paris Springboks captured the President’s Cup title in their age group.  There are six Fillies on the team.  They are Amelia Bolin, Taylor Landrum, Laura Beth Ledford, Jordan McDaniel, Charlie Moore and Chandlyr Puckett.  
    The U-12 Paris Springboks, coached by HCMS and HCHS Assistant coach David McDaniel, also had a great season.

  • Some catching up to do

    A lot can happen in two weeks and I feel like I need to catch up after being in Alaska for the better part of the 14 days previous to writing this.  I also want to write a little about sports in Alaska.  
    It is another world from Kentucky.
    The Breds and Fillies both came up a little short in the region but both had good seasons and represented Harrison County well.  They also won their respective districts for what has to seem like the umpteenth time to the district competition.  

  • Summer programs in full swing at...

    The youth ball leagues, whether it be baseball or softball, are all in full swing at River Road Park.  
    Recreation director Darrell Baxter discussed the different positions that each league is in and some of the issues surrounding them.  
    “We have players not coming to games already in Little League,” bemoaned Baxter.  “This makes it hard on the coaches when parents do not bring the child or call to let the coach know he isn’t coming.”
