  • Henry softball wins five straight games

    After splitting its first two games of the season, coach Matt Wright said his Henry County softball team needed to focus more, limiting errors in the field and having a good mental approach at the plate. And after playing six more games last week, Wright said Henry did just that.

    The Ladycats strung together five straight wins, beating Walton-Verona, Owen County, Carroll County, Upper St. Clair (PA) and Anderson County, and lost to a tough Union County squad to leave them at 6-2 on the season. The final three games were part of the Oldham County Spring Break Classic.

    It wasn’t the prettiest mens’ NCAA basketball tournament this year, but it sure was exciting.

  • Eminence 21, Sayre 1

    In what was the Eminence softball team’s biggest win in eight years, the Warriors opened the season in impressive fashion last Wednesday night with their 21-1 victory over Sayre in Lexington.

    The 21 points in a single game and the 20-point margin of victory was the most productive single-game scoring performance since the Warriors beat Evangel Christian 22-0 on April 1, 2003. It was the Warriors only game last week, which points them in the right direction with a season full of possibilities remaining.

    Anderson used a big third inning to score eight runs, and ended the game with the 10-run mercy rule after five innings. And two days later, Owen jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and ended the game after six innings with the mercy rule.
