  • Warriors try to find a way to win

    Through their opening three baseball games, the Eminence Warriors are still searching for their first win this season but coach Mark Payton says the potential is definitely there.

    The Warriors opened 2010 with a 17-1 loss to Anderson County on March 31, then took a 29-13 loss to Trimble County last Tuesday and a 20-2 loss to Williamstown on Thursday in the first round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament. All three outings followed a similar storyline with Eminence hanging close in the early innings before faltering down the stretch with late-game woes.
