  • Spring break trip nets ‘valuable...

    Though they spent their spring break in Florida, it was a working trip for the Henry County Lady Cats.

    After opening the 17th Florida Beach Bash with a 9-0 loss to Heath, the Lady Cats dropped four more games in the tournament against strong competition. It was, coach Jon Kasten said, a valuable experience as the team moves forward.

    After the Heath game, the Lady Cats faced Franklin, Ohio, in a side trip to the Coco Beach Expo on Tuesday, April 3.

  • Warriors off to 5-0 start

    Just five games into their season, the Eminence softball team is off to its best start in years — 5-0.

    “So far... we’ve made very, very few mental mistakes,” head coach Bill Covington said. “I can take a physical error a whole lot more than I can take a mental error, and we really have done a good job this year.”

    Covington said the Warriors are running the bases intelligently and making the right defensive throws. So far, he said, he can think of just one play “where we didn’t do the right thing.”

  • Cats split spring break games

    The Henry County baseball team would have had a busy spring break with four games scheduled, but Mother Nature wiped out two of those games. The Cats split the remaining two games against a pair of Louisville schools.

    On Tuesday, April 3, the Wildcats took on Christian Academy of Louisville for the second time this season. The Cats lost this meeting 9-6 despite a spirited seventh inning rally.

  • Short crew of track Cats sets...

    The Henry County Track team traveled to North Hardin High School to compete against some of the top teams in the state last Saturday.

    The team was short handed as many of the athletes were away on Spring Break, but many of those who competed had a good day.

    Destany Crawford, Cathryn Fischer and Jesse Mann set personal and season best records in multiple events. Fischer equaled her season best long jump and set a personal record in the 300-meter hurdles by 1.2 seconds.

  • Baughman finishes third

  • Lady Cats split a pair with...

    Before heading to the beach for spring break, the Henry County Lady Cats split a pair of games with district rivals.

    The Henry County softball team played district rivals Carroll County and Gallatin County last week before heading south to compete in the 17th Annual Florida Beach Classic at Fort Walton, Florida.
