  • Cats win 11 straight games!

    The wins keep piling up for the Wildcats, and just at the right time.

    The first of the streak came on April 29 in an 8-4 win over Oldham County, and 10 more followed during the next three weeks, leading through the rest of the regular season and into the 31st District tournament. That’s 11 consecutive wins, nearly a month without a loss.

  • Fischer, Phillips headed to...

    Cassey Fischer became the first runner from Henry County to qualify for the state meet in the three longest races on the track, Eric Phillips is making his first trip to state, and both distance specialists will be competing against the best in Class 2A this Thursday at the University of Louisville.

  • District tournament games pushed...

    Stormy weather conditions continue to hamper the 2011 baseball and softball seasons, right up to the end.

    As the postseason started on Monday night, a storm swept through the area, causing local first-round games to be delayed and eventually postponed until at least Tuesday. More storms are expected the rest of this week, leading up to Monday’s 8th Region tournaments. It might be a tricky postseason to get in all needed games.

  • 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.
