  • Henry County winning the numbers game

    Please excuse the following column as I see an opportunity to indulge my numbers nerd side.

  • Wildcats move to 6-1


    Powered by strong pitching from Jaydon Berry and timely hitting, the Henry County Wildcats recorded their first district win of the season March 21 at Gallatin County.

    Berry pitched a complete-game four-hit shutout while striking out ten and walking only one batter.

    The Wildcats got on the scoreboard in the first inning without the benefit of a base hit.

  • Warriors improving


    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Erlanger Mar. 21 to take on the Lloyd Memorial Juggernauts and came away on the short end of a 3-0 score.

    A two-run home run for Lloyd in the bottom of the first did most of the damage in the game as Andrew Coomes pitched well the rest of the way. He gave up only one unearned run over the next four innings before Trenton Smith closed out the game with a perfect inning in the bottom of the sixth when he struck out all three Lloyd batters.

  • Lady Cats rally past J-town, beat Walton

    The Lady Bearcats got on the scoreboard first with a solo home run in the bottom of the second.

    The Lady Cats took the lead in the bottom of the fourth.
