  • HCHS student of the week: Jessie Carothers

    Jessie Carothers is 16 years old and a sophomore.

    Your principal says you’re career and college-ready, where do you want to attend college?
    Northern Kentucky University is a good option or U of L. I will major in orthodontics and minor in agriculture business. “Mrs. Davie (ag teacher) is so passionate, she made me like it,” Carothers said.

    What’s your career choice?
    I want to be an orthodontist. I’ve had braces twice and my orthodontist always keeps it upbeat.


    In what might be the most wins the Eminence softball team has ever had in a single season, the Warriors won three more games last week to surpass the 10-win mark and are now 11-7 overall.

    Since records were first kept by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in 1998, no Eminence softball team has won as many games as this year’s squad. In 2010 Eminence won seven games — its most since 2004 — and this year the Warriors have already done four better entering the final week of the regular season.

  • Ladycats seeded second in district

    When the Henry County softball team takes the field for the 31st District tournament on Monday night, it will be in an unfamiliar position — not as the top seed.

    The Ladycats have been the No. 1 seed and have won the district tournament the last five years — that’s each year since the state’s new alignment in 2006. But this year, they will have to take a different route to get that sixth title, playing as the No. 2 seed behind Gallatin County.

    The groom-elect graduated from Kings High School in 2005 and from Georgetown College in 2009. He is employed as a loan processor at United Bank in Georgetown.

  • Eminence track team finishes regular season

    Competing on the same track they will be at six days later — the site of this year’s Class A Region 5 Championship — the Eminence Warriors closed out the regular season at the Owen County All-Comers last Wednesday night.

    The Warriors had four athletes who participated in five events with Shelby Armstrong leading the way, finishing third in the 100-meter dash in 12.43 seconds and adding a fifth place in the long jump with a leap of 16 feet, 2 inches.
