  • Rahm follows brother to KWC

    Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Zach Rahm has decided to play football for Kentucky Wesleyan College in the fall.

    Rahm decided with Kentucky Wesleyan a few months ago but made it official last Monday with a signing inside the high school’s Media Room. He will reunite with his older brother Josh, who graduated from Henry County in 2008 and currently plays for Wesleyan.

  • Warriors finished in 32-0 outing

    Suffering its biggest loss this season, the Eminence baseball team was dominated by Shelby County, 32-0 in five innings, on Monday night in the first game of the 30th District tournament.

  • Coach says EHS is still...

    After celebrating their best stretch of softball in at least a decade, the Eminence Lady Warriors dropped both of their games last week for a 5-9 overall record entering the second half of the season.

    The Lady Warriors, who were coming off three consecutive wins for the first time since scores were kept by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in 2002, lost to Carroll County (6-3) on Tuesday and Spencer County (12-2) on Thursday. Bill Covington, the new coach in charge of rebuilding the program, said his players are still progressing despite the two losses.

  • St. X meet preparation for region

    Led by first-place finishes from Brittany Crawford and Alexa King, the Henry County track team competed at the Coach Cooper/Brother Borgia Invitational hosted by St. Xavier High School all day Saturday. Afterwards, first-year Henry coach Sedrick Williams said the focus is shifting towards next Wednesday’s all-important regional championship.

  • Thought I hit the jackpot

    I kept a close eye on horse No. 4 in this year’s Kentucky Derby — from the sprint out of the gate to the mid-race jostling for position to the dash to the finish.

    Hours before the race was set to start, I drew No. 4 in two separate pots and had placed a few more bets on him, or so I thought at the time. While at a friend’s house in Trimble County, my eyes were zeroed in on No. 4.

  • Postseason starting

    Brace yourself, the postseason has arrived.

    Baseball and softball teams across Kentucky start district tournaments Monday night and, weather permitting, finish them a few days later. It’ll be the season finales for most, while for others it’ll be a stepping stone to a regional-tournament appearance and possibly the state playoffs.

  • Tracksters continue to get better

    Shelby Armstrong won the long jump while Corey Roberts won the shot put — both in the middle school division — and the Eminence track team continued to improve at the Henry County All-Comers last Thursday night.

    The high school and middle school athletes competed against each other in the weekday meet, but the results were divided out after the competition. Afterwards, coach Steve Frommeyer said he was very pleased with his athletes. There’s not many of them, but they continue to progress as the end of the season draws near.

  • Ladycats are NCKC champs!

    After beating Walton-Verona in an emotional finale to the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament last Wednesday night, the Henry County Ladycats jumped, cheered and gave high fives. They couldn’t keep it in, not after they were denied the claim as the top team in the conference the previous two seasons.

  • Henry baseball 13-12 heading...

    Preparing for the fast-approaching postseason, which starts Monday night, the Henry County baseball team picked up wins No. 12 and 13 last week to take its overall record above the .500 mark at 13-12.
