  • Lady Cats fall to Valkyries in 8 innings

    The Henry County Lady Cats opened their season at home on March 18 and fell to Sacred Heart 5-4 in eight innings.

    The Lady Cats struck first when they scored a run in the bottom of the second. Katie James laid down a suicide squeeze bunt with two outs to score Alison Harmon who was running for Madison Rabourn. Rabourn singled with one out to start the rally.

  • Wildcats down Demons for 1st win

    The Henry County Wildcats managed to squeeze in three games last week despite the wintry weather in the middle of the week and got their first victory of the season with an 8-0 win over Williamstown on Friday night.

    The Wildcats got good pitching and enough offense to get the win according to Coach Stuart Dill.

    We pitched really well,” Dill said. “We only walked two batters the entire game. Dakota Estes pitched four complete innings and Blake Prather pitched the last three.

  • Warriors lose opener to Frankfort

    The Eminence Warriors opened their season at home on Friday and fell to the Frankfort Panthers 10-5. The young Warriors showed much improvement over last season both offensively and defensively in their debut. The Panthers beat the Warriors 11-1 in five innings last season.

    The game started poorly for the Warriors as Frankfort hit a home run on the second pitch of the game and went on to add three more runs in the inning.

  • Warriors drop two to open the season

    The Eminence Warriors opened the season with two home games last week. On Thursday night the young Warrior squad fell to Carroll County 15-0 and Friday Whitefield Academy defeated them 17-0.

    Coach Jerry Martin is trying to build the team almost from scratch and is attempting to set the tone of playing winning softball first.

    “We have to get rid of the defeatist attitude first,” Martin said. “We had some kids who expected to get beat before we went on the field. We should never accept defeat until it happens.”
