  • Cravens bags buck
  • Peyton's State Runner-up...

    1. It was easy to pick the top highlight of the season this year. MacKenzie Peyton’s runner-up performance at the state golf tournament was stellar but so was her whole season.

    The all-state golf selection system is one of the least subjective in high school sports, and because of that, a young athlete can be rewarded for their efforts even if they don’t come from a big-name program.

  • Chemistry is Key for EHS...

    Last year I wrote in this column that something special was brewing at Eminence High School.

    I think the young ladies on the Eminence Warriors volleyball team proved me right this year. They had a phenomenal season capped by a postseason run to the semifinals of the regional tournament.

  • Sports Brief-Hensley, Peyton...

    Seventh grader Maddie Hensley and junior Mackenzie Peyton were named to the 2013 All-5th Region team as voted on by coaches from the region.

    This is Peyton’s third all-region honor and Hensley’s first.

    Maddie Hamilton of Sacred Heart was named the player of the year and Leslie Bender of Sacred Heart was named coach of the year.

    Others on the team include Sarah Son of Christian Academy of Louisville, Meredith Moir of Sacred Heart, and Jordan Webb and Madison Thomas, both of Shelby County.

  • Warriors fall in first round

    A season marred by injuries is over for the Eminence Warriors, who fell to Bellevue 64-6 in the first round of the Kentucky High School Class A playoffs.

    Bellevue scored early and often in racking up 36 first-quarter points to put the game away early.

    The Warriors got on the scoreboard in the second quarter when DeMarcus Bailey ran it in from one yard out for the team’s only touchdown.

    A 45-yard pass from Jalen Dixie to Shelby Armstrong set up the touchdown run.

  • Changing the focus

     

    With the end of the fall sports season I was able to focus on college sports a little this weekend.

    After traveling to the Kentucky Horse Park for the State cross country meet on Saturday I headed to Commonwealth Stadium where I ‘enjoyed’ watching the Kentucky Wildcats play the Missouri Tigers with another old retiree, Terry Petree.

  • Redhounds down Wildcats 24-10

    Despite home-field advantage and giving their all, Henry County fell to Corbin, 24-10, in the first round of the Kentucky High School Class 3A playoffs.

    The Wildcats started strong and held a 10-3 advantage at halftime but could not keep the offense moving in the second half as Corbin rallied for the right to advance to the second round to play district rival Wayne County.

  • Logsdon competes in first state...

    Henry County High School sophomore Josh Logsdon competed in his first state cross country meet on Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park and finished the Class 2A meet in the middle of the pack at 135th out of 215 runners. Logsdon’s time was 19:14 on the moderately difficult state meet 5k course.
