    The Eminence Warriors opened the baseball season with a home game against the Thomas Nelson Generals Friday night and came away with a 7-4 loss despite taking an early lead.

    Marshall Metten got the Warriors off to a good start in the bottom of the first after pitcher Jared Golden struck out three and gave up one hit in the top of the inning.

    Metten, a freshman, smacked a two-run home run to centerfield with one out and fellow freshman Matthew Hamilton on second base. It was Metten’s first at-bat in a high school game.

  • 36 degrees? Play ball!

    Jon Kasten of HCHS and Tye Lawson of EHS are pretty clever for athletic directors. A certain local sportswriter sent a somewhat desperate email to them Friday that was supposedly from the weather-related illness coordinator of the KHSAA.

    The email attempted to make them believe that games for Friday had been cancelled due to the new KHSAA wind chill index, similar to the heat index table used to decide whether fall sports teams can play or not when it is hot as blazes in mid-August.
