  • EHS track ends year at region

    In what assistant track coach Steve Frommeyer described as a very promising year,

    Eminence’s track season came to an end at the Region 5 Championships last Tuesday night in Owen County as no Warrior qualified for the Class A state meet, hosted by the University of Louisville this Friday.

    The tracksters got a late start to the season, shortening the training time and total meets, starting after the school’s spring break and ending last Tuesday. Frommeyer said it was a good year.

  • Henry baseball, softball win...

    After the weather delayed and delayed and delayed the North Central Kentucky Conference baseball and softball tournaments, pushing both to the final weekend of the regular season with the district tournaments just days away, both Henry County teams are conference champions.

  • Districts to start

    They have arrived.

    The high school district tournaments for both baseball and softball start Monday night with games all across Kentucky. Here is a breakdown of all four county teams:

    The Henry baseball team plays Owen County (at Carroll County) on Monday at 8 p.m. in the opening round of the 31st District tournament. Owen beat Henry, 9-8, in a nine-inning thriller on April 18. Henry is 8-16 overall, while Owen is 8-16.

  • It’s eight straight wins for...

    Continuing what appears to be a perfect peak, the Henry County baseball team has extended its winning streak to eight games entering the final week of the regular season.

    In order of wins, the Wildcats beat Carroll County, North Oldham, Carroll and Gallatin County last week and are now 14-8 overall with the 31st District tournament starting on Monday night. The last loss for the Cats was against Christian Academy-Louisville on April 21, and they have now rolled off eight consecutive wins.

  • MOST WINS EVER?

    In what might be the most wins the Eminence softball team has ever had in a single season, the Warriors won three more games last week to surpass the 10-win mark and are now 11-7 overall.

    Since records were first kept by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in 1998, no Eminence softball team has won as many games as this year’s squad. In 2010 Eminence won seven games — its most since 2004 — and this year the Warriors have already done four better entering the final week of the regular season.

  • Ladycats seeded second in...

    When the Henry County softball team takes the field for the 31st District tournament on Monday night, it will be in an unfamiliar position — not as the top seed.

    The Ladycats have been the No. 1 seed and have won the district tournament the last five years — that’s each year since the state’s new alignment in 2006. But this year, they will have to take a different route to get that sixth title, playing as the No. 2 seed behind Gallatin County.

  • EHS baseball takes losses to...

    The Warriors lost two more games last week and are now 1-11 with the postseason just days away.

    The Eminence baseball team lost to Spencer County last Tuesday night, 15-1, then lost to Carroll County on Friday, 14-4. The Warriors beat Berea on April 19 and have lost the last five games. They play Shelby County (at Shelby) in the first round of the 30th District tournament on Monday night at 6 p.m.

  • Eminence track team finishes...

    Competing on the same track they will be at six days later — the site of this year’s Class A Region 5 Championship — the Eminence Warriors closed out the regular season at the Owen County All-Comers last Wednesday night.

    The Warriors had four athletes who participated in five events with Shelby Armstrong leading the way, finishing third in the 100-meter dash in 12.43 seconds and adding a fifth place in the long jump with a leap of 16 feet, 2 inches.

  • Cats race at NCKTC, North Hardin

    The Henry County track team closed out the regular season with the North Central Kentucky Track Conference last Thursday night and the North Hardin Invitational on Saturday, then competed in the Region 3 Championship on Tuesday and are awaiting the Class 2A state meet next week — for those athletes who qualified.

    It was a packed final few days of the regular season and start to the postseason. The state meet will be hosted by the University of Louisville next Thursday.

  • Impressive wins for Cats!

    Austin Hunsaker told his Henry County baseball players a few weeks ago that they had two choices, and that the fate of the season came down to what they chose — either continue to play poorly, like they were at the time, or play baseball the way they’re capable of to turn the ship around.

    They chose the latter.
