  • Lady Warriors try to dig out of early holes

    Sports editor

    For the Eminence softball team, it’s been a familiar scenario — getting behind in the first inning and trying to dig out of the early deficit. And this was no different last week as the Lady Warriors lost to Spencer County (10-0) Thursday and Bardstown (16-2) Friday in two home games.

    Eminence has lost every game they’ve trailed this season, with just one win coming against Caverna (19-0) April 12.

  • Ladycats winless at Capital City Classic

    Sports editor

    It wasn’t exactly what the Henry County Ladycats wanted, but their three loses at the Capital City Classic over the weekend wasn’t as bad as the loss column might indicate.

    Henry took a 3-1 loss to Scott County Friday, then turned around on Saturday and took a 3-2 loss to Assumption and 3-2 loss to Franklin. Assumption and Franklin are ranked just outside the top-25 in the latest Kentucky Softball Coaches Association Poll, while Scott is ranked fourth.

  • Wildcats get refocused after going flat

    Sports editor

    The Henry County Wildcats dropped two baseball games last week to leave them at a still impressive 12-4 mark, but it might have been just what the Cats needed after riding an eight-game winning streak.

    “I think our kids hit reality that every game is tough and a battle,” Henry coach Austin Hunsaker said. “We have to stay mentally focused every inning, every bat, every pitch. I think we learned that what we did in previous games doesn’t really matter.”

  • Warriors pleased with Shelby performances, coach says

    Sports editor

    Athlete per athlete, the Eminence Warriors might have had the best team performance at the Shelby County All-Comers last Tuesday night, scoring 44 points between five tracksters and finishing fifth in the team standings.

    The Warriors also left with a little more pride after producing five top-three finishes and one first-place. They were up against much larger schools, including Shelby County, Waggener, Male, Southern, Franklin County and Spencer County.

  • First win of season for Warriors

    The Eminence players hooted, hollered and gave high fives while jumping around the baseball field last Wednesday night. They couldn’t keep it in, not after they earned their first win of the season with a 7-4 outing over Evangel Christian.

    It was the Warriors first win in almost a year, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

  • Cats compete against some of the best teams in state

    Sports editor

    The Henry County track team had just eight athletes compete at the Eastern Relays, held at the University of Louisville’s track complex Saturday, but the Cats left Louisville with some of their best individual performances of the season.

  • In the interim

    General Manager

    In October 1997, Port Royal Baptist church asked former Campbellsburg Christian Church pastor Carl Rucker to serve as their interim pastor.

    They asked him to serve while they looked for a new pastor. Two weeks into his temporary stay, Rucker was approached again.

    “In the second week in November, they said ‘would you stay with us through December,’ to which I responded that I would,” Rucker said. “About the middle of December, they asked if I would stay with them through 1998.”
