  • Warriors find their swing against Paris

    In a week where the Eminence Warriors struggled with hitting, they perked up with a strong 10-3 win over Paris.

    “We knocked the leather off the ball in this game,” head coach Mark Payton said, noting that the team hit .411 on the game, one of their best performances of the season.

    Paris jumped out to a 2-0 lead in what Payton said has become a pattern for the Warriors: get down early, settle down, come back.

  • Lady Cats avenge Gallatin loss

    The Henry County Lady Cats were still smarting from an 11-0 spanking at the hands of Gallatin County when they took the field against the team from Warsaw on Wednesday, April 25.

    The pain reliever for that spanking would be a defeat over their district rivals in the first round of the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament.

    And that’s exactly what they did, despite finding themselves in a hole early. They fought back to get the 5-4 victory in extra innings.

  • Warriors 2-1 in tough week

    In a steady rain, the Eminence Warriors put a 13-2 hurtin’ on Bardstown High School last week.

    The Warriors got out to an early lead, and built upon it in the shortened game. Morgan Smith had two hits, Kelsie Craigmyle had a hit; Brenna Raisor had a hit; and Shelby Dees, Covington said, hit the ball well. The team’s defense was strong, he added, and the team committed just one error.

    Picking up where they left off on March 19, the Henry County Wildcats swept a double-header against Grant County on Friday.

    The first game on the night was a continuation of a game that began on March 19, but was suspended due to darkness after eight innings tied at 4-4. The Wildcats had had a 4-1 lead going into the seventh but allowed three runs in the inning to force the game into extra innings. After a scoreless eighth inning the umpires stopped play.
