  • 2014-15 Basketball Season Review

    The 2014-15 basketball season is in the history books and it was a mixed bag of highs and lows for local teams. 

  • Winter storm delays tournament

    Remember January? Very little snow, mild temperatures? Ring a bell? 

    By the end of that month we were beginning to think that predictions of a bad winter were way off. And then February and early March happened.

    Does anyone remember the last time an entire week of basketball was cancelled across most of the state? It happened the week before the district tournament.

  • Henry Hoopla

    It is time for our annual Henry Hoopla NCAA basketball bracket contest. This year we are going digital, which gives our players the ability to go online and enter their picks directly.

    The Henry County Wildcats’ baseball team traveled to Gallatin County March 24 for their first district game of the season and came back for a 6-5 win.

    Bodie Clark was on the mound for the Wildcats and struggled through three and two-thirds innings as his team’s defense allowed three unearned runs and two earned runs before Daniel Murray and Jaydon Berry relieved and helped the Cats to victory.

    Gallatin County got on the scoreboard first with a run in the second inning with only two base hits.

  • Warriors fall to Raiders, Tigers

    The Eminence Warriors’ baseball team got their season underway on March 23 when they faced Trimble County and their ace pitcher Michael Duanway. Dunaway pitched five strong innings to get a no-hitter and the Raiders took advantage of the young Warriors’ mistakes to win 16-0.

    Dunaway struck out 11 of the 16 batters he faced. Trevor Payton reached on an error by the Raider’s shortstop to give the Warriors their only base runner of the game.

  • Blue Bloods go to Indy

    After all the first and second round upsets this NCAA tourney has come down to four of college basketball’s traditional powers: Kentucky, Wisconsin, Michigan State and the team whose name we do not speak.

    Some people may argue that Wisconsin should not be included as a basketball blue blood because they were a non-factor in the tournament for nearly 50 years, but Dick Bennett and Bo Ryan have made the Badgers into a powerhouse team in the last 15 years or so.

    Savannah Mertz, a transfer from Eminence, hit a 3-run homer on her first swing as a Lady Cat in the bottom of the first to put the Lady Cats up 5-1. Shelby Ray added another 3-run home run in the second inning to make the score 9-1. The Lady Cats eventually scored seven more runs in the inning to lead 16-1 going into the third inning.
