  • Thorobreds remain undefeated...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds are undefeated for 2015 as they rallied to beat Paris Wednesday 8-6 in Paris, and swept a doubleheader from Robertson County Monday on the Hilltop.
    The home-standing Greyhounds used a single, two walks and two errors to take a three-run lead in the bottom of the first off Logan Kellione.  The Breds tied the score in the second on a two-run home run by Zach Day and an RBI by Noah Mitchell.
    Paris scored a single run in the second to regain the lead and then added two more runs in the third for a surprising 6-3 advantage.  

  • Fillies win thriller over Bishop...

    With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, it looked like extra innings were inevitable. However, a walk to Shelby Ishmael, a base hit by Madison Coppage and a sinking line drive hit for Jami Davis scored Ishmael for a 5-4 win for the Fillies over Bishop Brossart.  
    Davis’ hit was just out of the reach of Katie Reis, who dove for the ball in an all out effort to prevent the run from scoring.  
    The Lady Mustangs took a 2-0 lead in the second when first baseman Elizabeth Martin drove in two runners with a two-out single.  

  • Breds drop first game 7-5 to...

    The Harrison County Thorobreds lost for the first time in 2015 Tuesday night to the Pendleton County Wildcats, 7-5, in Falmouth.  
    Wildcat senior hurler Josh Brown went the distance for the win striking out six, walking one and allowing eight base hits.  
    His teammates played very suspect defense committing six errors, but the Wildcats still managed a victory.
    The Thorobreds struck for two runs in the top of the first on a base hit by Noah Mitchell, a walk to Luke Slucher and a single by Zach Day.  

  • A mixture of youth and...

    The Fillies and Thorobreds have massive losses from last year as they face the 2015 track season.  
    Gone from the Fillies squad are Caylin Mattox, Haley Carr, Kayla Joy and Courtney Jackson.  
    These girls represented almost sure points each meet in the hurdles, relays, distance races, the shot put and the discus.  
    Added to these losses is the loss of Hannah Thomas, who is recovering from surgery or surgeries. Thomas is a talented sprinter and a valuable part of the relays.

  • Fillies tennis defeats Lady...

    The Harrison County Fillies tennis team defeated George Rogers Clark last Tuesday night, 5-2, and followed that with a Friday sweep of Paris to continue their impressive start in the new season.  
    Unfortunately, the short-handed Thorobreds suffered losses to both of these opponents.
    The Cardinals defeated the Thorobreds 0-4 and the Paris squad won by a 1-3 count.
    The Tuesday battle with George Rogers Clark saw Gracey Roberts win 6-2, 6-4, Alexis Lanza, 8-0, Melony Dunaway, 8-0, and Casey Newcomb, 6-4.  

  • Breds finish tied for 22nd in...

    Note: This article was written for last week’s Cynthiana Democrat but didn’t get sent to the editor.
    Eleven Harrison County wrestlers did battle in the KHSAA State Wrestling Championship but only four scored points as the Thorobreds tied for 22nd with Christian County, Iroquois, and Meade County with 35 points.
    At 113 lbs., Michael Mattox was the team leader finishing fifth as he defeated Austin Cook of St. Xavier in the fifth place match.  

  • Fillies 6th, Breds 9th in...

    The Woodford County “Luck O the Irish” track meet featured a strong field from the central Kentucky area.  
    “This may turn out to be one of our toughest tests all year,” noted Fillies’ Coach Danny Simpson. “We usually start with a little smaller meet but this 12-team field was a powerhouse.”  
    Despite a limited amount of time for preparation, the Fillies and Thorobreds performed well.  
    The Fillies finished sixth led by Kassidy Cook.  

  • ACC best like it or not

    Trent Thompson closed out his high school career Saturday with another double double in the East/West All Star Game. His 24 points and 10 rebounds led his East team, which lost by a few points to the West.
    After Harrison County lost, I was for Owensboro Senior High to win the state tournament, which they did on Sunday.  
    When I was growing up in Tell City, Owensboro was a state power and I believe that basketball is better in the Commonwealth when the western part of the state is more competitive.
