  • Lady Cats sweep double-header

    In games so one-sided neither coach had much to say, the Henry County Lady Cats swept the Eminence Warriors in a double-header on Friday.

    The Lady Cats won both games, 10-0 and 18-0.

    In the first game of the doubleheader against Eminence the Lady Cats got a strong pitching performance from Krista Deburger.

    Deburger threw a no-hitter as she struck out 14 of 16 batters. She also had two hits in the game with two RBI’s. Vaughn also had two hits including a triple.

  • The good and bad of softball

    It was, Bill Covington noted dryly, a week that showed “the good and bad” of Eminence softball.

    Friday, the Warriors turned in a disappointing performance against Henry County. But just two days prior, they played what Covington said may have been their best game of the season, a 6-8 loss to Owen County.

    “We were behind 7-0 after two innings, and then we held them to one run the rest of the game,” Covington said. “We played really good defense.”

  • Cats breeze past Carroll, Fairdale


    Henry County’s Alex Miles delivers a pitch against Walton Verona on April 19, where he delivered a six-inning performance. Miles relieved Matt Ricketts in the Wildcats win against Carrollton, pitching the final three innings of the 5-1 win. Below, Jake Hartlage slides into second on an attempted steal.

  • Fall after tough seventh inning against Walton-Verona

    In a classic pitchers’ duel, the Henry County Wildcats earned a 5-1, come-from-behind win in 10 innings over Carroll County.

    Carroll County struck first in the April 17 game with a run in the bottom of the third, after loading the bases with two singles and a walk. Another single pushed across their only run of the game.

  • Cats relay despite weather, illness

    Despite warm temperatures this spring, the Henry County track team was hit by some of the coldest, wettest weather of the season when they hosted the Wildcat Relays on Saturday, April 21, and an all-comers meet on Tuesday, April 17.

    Injury and illness also plagued the Wildcats as several key members of the team missed the big day. On the previous Tuesday the Cats had a great day to host their third all-comers meet of the season.

  • The Cobras
  • State Champion

    Emma LaRoche, of Oldham County, competed Saturday at the USTA State Meet in Morehead. She won two state titles in her age category: State Champion, advanced beginner tumbling; and State Champion, beginner double mini. She won second place in novice trampoline, and received the high point award for tumbling.

    LaRoche is the great-granddaughter of Polly Troxell, of Eminence, and the granddaughter of Terry and Lewis LaRoche of Smithfield. Her parents are Melissa and Jerry LaRoche.
