    In the opening game of the tournament the Cats jumped out to a 1-0 lead against Trigg County. The game seesawed back and forth with Trigg County going up 4-2 heading into the sixth inning.

  • DeBurger slugging for Transy

    When Krista DeBurger played softball for the Henry County Lady Cats most fans that followed the team thought of her as a pitcher first. But DeBurger was also one of the best hitters on the team in her senior season and she is using her hitting prowess to make a big contribution to her college team, the Transylvania Pioneers.

    DeBurger, a freshman, is leading the team in home runs with five, batting average (.396) and RBIs (18). She also leads the team in slugging percentage and on-base percentage.

  • UK's improbable run to the...

    I have to say it again. I didn’t see it coming. The Kentucky Wildcats’ gave me no indication that they could make a glorious run to the championship game of the NCAA tournament.

    When you look at the regular season run-in all you see is losses and lackluster performances.

    On Feb. 27, the Cats lost to Arkansas in overtime. One might say losing in overtime to Arkansas isn’t so bad. But it was a home game. The Cats don’t lose SEC home games,but they did this year…twice. The Gators got ‘em by 10 points in February.

  • Wildcats fall to Bearcats in 8...

    The crazy spring weather continued to wreak havoc on the Henry County Wildcats’ baseball season. For most of the season it has been snow that has either cancelled games or made it impossible to practice outside. This time it was the wind.

    Coach Stuart Dill said the wind made some fly balls almost unplayable in Henry County’s 8-7 extra inning loss to Anderson County on Thursday in Lawrenceburg.

  • Lady Cats win three in a row

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Walton-Verona Bearcats on May 24 and came away with a 2-1 win that was not decided until the final out of the game. The Lady Cats’ Aly Stanley played a big role on the mound and at the plate as she scored the winning run in the fifth inning after getting a base hit and stealing second and third, then coming in on a hit by Paige DeBurger. Stanly went the distance on the mound, giving up six hits, four walks and striking out six. The Bearcats only run came in the seventh inning and was unearned.

  • Brackets and more brackets

    Let me start by saying I am an extremely lucky man. Take my complaining with a grain of salt. I have a great family and a job that I enjoy 95 percent of the time.

    Until this year’s March Madness began I would have said 100 percent of the time. But this year I have had to work on the Henry Hoopla brackets a lot more. Last year I had a little more help. And last year we did not have nearly as many entrants.

  • Warriors fall to Greyhounds

    The young Eminence Warrior baseball team continued to struggle last week as they dropped games to Trimble County 11-1, Owen County 13-1 and Paris 11-1. However, the Warriors are showing improvement from last year.

    In the game against Paris Friday night Eminence trailed by just three runs going into the fifth inning. Through four innings the Warriors had only one error and had not given up any walks. Austin Jones and Jalen Dixie showed good command of the strike zone and the defense held behind them. But in the fifth inning the Warriors’ defense fell apart.

  • Warriors fall to Frankfort

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Frankfort Lady Panthers on Mar. 26 and fell 20-1.

    Daphna Dale scored the Warriors’ run in the second inning and Samantha Thompson got the RBI.

    The Lady Panthers scored 10 runs in the first inning, one in the second, three in the third and six in the fourth.

    Eminence fell to 0-5 on the season while Frankfort improved to 1-3.
