    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Bedford May 11 to take on the Trimble County Raiders and came away on the short end of a 10-0 score line. Trimble County pounded out nine hits and took advantage of walks and an error to score four runs in the first, one in the second, two in the third and three in the fourth to end the game on the 10-run rule.

    EHS managed just two hits, a double by Cameron Mathis and a single by Alec Spraybury.

  • Rain foils coaches' plans

    Rain is a good thing. I understand that. Without water we couldn’t exist. Some parts of the world could use the rain right now because of drought.

    Not us though. We’ve had plenty of rain. In fact if you are a softball and baseball fan, coach or player, you just wish the rain would stop long enough to get a game in.

    The Henry County softball and baseball teams are among those who are sick and tired of H2O falling from the sky.

    Inclement weather made last week very important for the Henry County Lady Cats as they played four games against district foes that would ultimately decide the seeding of the 31st District tournament.

    The Lady Cats took care of business by sweeping a doubleheader from Gallatin County on May 2, coming from behind against Carroll County on May 4 and winning versus Eminence Friday at home.

    The Henry County Wildcats had another week of rained out games but managed to play well in the one game in between weather systems last week. Henry County defeated the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats 1-0 on April 25 in Louisville when Jaydon Berry pitched a shutout. Berry was back on the mound again Thursday and gave up one unearned run as the Wildcats had an easier time with the Bearcats this time around.

    Henry County allowed the Bearcats a run in the top of the first inning on a single, a two-base error and another single.

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Fort Knox May 2 to take on the Eagles and lost by one run after falling behind early and coming back to make it a close game.

    Fort Knox jumped on the Warriors for four runs in the bottom of the first and two more in the bottom of the second to take a 6-1 lead. The Warriors’ only run in that stretch came in the top of the second when Trey Gregory singled and came home on a hit by Alec Spraybury.

    Henry County High School senior Gavin Jameson signed a letter of intent Friday to play basketball for the Thomas More Saints next year in a ceremony in the Henry County High School Library.

    Jameson, an all-region selection for the Wildcats this year, will join former teammate Austin Young on the Saints’ roster next season.

    When asked about his opportunity to play at the collegiate level, Jameson said, “I’m just ready to get down there and start playing.”

  • HCHS track hosts all-comers meet

     

    The Henry County High School track team won both the boys and girls competitions at home May 3 in an all-comers meet with Trimble County, Iroquois and Eminence.

    Several Wildcats won events, but the performance of the day was turned in by Connor Finley who ran the 110-meter hurdle race in 16.1 seconds to beat two competitors from Trimble County. It was Finley’s best time of the season.

    The Transylvania University softball team is experiencing a successful season and former HCHS Lady Cat Krista DeBurger is a big part of that success.

    The Pioneers are 25-10 on the season and have won 14 straight games. They lead the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference with an 13-1 record.

    DeBurger leads the conference with 14 home runs, is second with 41 RBIs and second with a .440 batting average. Her .548 on base percentage and 1.000 slugging percentage also lead the conference.

    A week after throwing a two-hitter against district rivals Carroll County, Jaydon Berry was back on the mound facing the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats.

    Berry once again limited his opponents’ chances and the Wildcats got another timely hit from Connor Smith to win 1-0.

    Berry struck out eight batters, walked three and allowed five hits. The Henry County defense helped strand all eight Bearcat base runners on base in the game to give Berry his second shutout of the season.
