    Sports editor

    For the first time in a decade, the Henry County baseball team came away with a district championship last Thursday night, defeating the host Gallatin County squad to earn its first district title since 1998.

    Back then, names like Troy Jones, David Cox and Clint Smith filled the stat book to lead the Wildcats. But this year, it was Tyler Cox, Anthony Palmer, Ben Roberts and Tommy Wilson — all named to the All-District Team following the tournament — who led the charge.

    They seem an unlikely duo — the cost of gas and healthy eating. But the two combine as factors that could make places like the Henry County Farmers Market more attractive to county residents.

    The Henry County Farmers Market serves as a one-stop local solution to those problems, and it’s in the heart of Henry County.

  • Coach reaches milestone

    When Jon Kasten and his Ladycats celebrated a 10-0 victory over Harrison County May 10, it was more than just another check in the win column. It also marked the 100th time Kasten came out on top during his head coaching career on the softball field.

    True, a lot of what’s achieved on the field is because of the players. But sometimes, the coach should get the credit, too. Thanks to Henry County Athletics Director Todd Gilley, who pointed out Kasten’s achievements to me last week, this coach isn’t going unnoticed.

    After two and a half innings of play, the Eminence softball team’s season came to a screeching halt Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament.

    Playing the defending district champs, and one of the top teams in the entire 8th Region, the young Lady Warriors were no match for the overpowering Shelby County squad as the Lady Rockets went up early and cruised in for the 19-0 victory.

  • Kudos to Brownings for honoring veterans

    As we approach Memorial Day, National Military Appreciation Month is coming to a close. We shouldn’t need reminders to thank those who have given of themselves by joining the armed forces.

    And yet, it seems that year after year, we do need some sort of reminder.

    Kudos to Marlyn Browning and his employees. Last year, they started an event to thank veterans throughout the region for their service. The event started humbly with a parade, but continued to include food, music, a few speeches, and of course — honoring of the veterans who were there.

    In the only county showdown on the diamond this season, the Henry County Ladycats came away with a convincing 13-0 win over the Eminence Lady Warriors last Tuesday night.

    Henry’s Kaitlyn Foree ended her final home game of her career with a bang — pitching a perfect five innings and leading the Cats to an undefeated 9-0 home record this season. It was also Senior Night for Henry, and marked the last time Foree faced cross-town rival Eminence.
