    The 12U Kentucky Stampede girls’ softball team began 2018 play last weekend by playing three games in a round robin tournament in Lincoln County.  
    Stampede opened play with Express from Whitley City.  Stampede got on the board first with a three-run second inning.  
    Allison Dye, Emma Hamm, Desiree Couve and Kira Persinger had consecutive singles to score three. Couve and Persinger had RBI while Couve scored the third run on a passed ball.

    The Harrison County Middle School Fillies with seventh-grader Reese Shirley scoring a first-half hat trick eased past Bourbon County Tuesday night 5-1. 
    The Fillies took only two minutes to get on the scoreboard as Kylie Hudgins dribbled down the right side and laid off a cross that Shirley flicked, left-footed into the net.

  • Maybe we can get back to the way...

    Friday’s parade of the summer time sports was a grand idea brought along by Parks and Recreation Director Barry Zumwalt.
    The baseball, softball and soccer youngsters with their coaches walked for a few blocks around town before heading for the ball park and the opening day of the different leagues.
    This made me think about how it used to be at the River Road Park and even before that up on what is now the practice area for football and on Shirley Field.

    It would have been hard to add more tension to the 38th District fast pitch game played Tuesday on Shirley Field in Cynthiana.  
    The Nicholas County Lady Jackets were on the Hilltop to avenge a 12-2 loss they had suffered in Carlisle just two weeks prior to Tuesday.  The Fillies were coming off a tough 11-8 loss the night before to 38th District rival Pendleton County.  Both teams needed to win the game.
