    Henry County scored all the runs they would need against Spencer County in the first inning on May 9, and then relied on pitching and defense the rest of the game to come away with a victory that avenges one of their five losses this season.

    Daniel Murray pitched seven innings for the Wildcats and allowed only two hits while walking one and striking out three batters. The Wildcat defense committed one error but did not allow a Spencer County base runner past first base the entire game.

    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.
