  • It’s a first win for...

    After starting out with six straight losses, the Eminence baseball team won its first game of the season last Monday night in a 11-2 outing over Silver Grove.

    It was not only the first check in the win column, but the best overall game the Warriors have played this season. They finished with 14 hits, committed just one error and Brandon Mitchell was solid on the mound. It was, in the words of head coach Mark Payton, the first complete game they have put together.

  • EHS softball on longest streak...

    Entering his first season in charge of the Eminence softball team, Bill Covington had one focus in mind — building the program with progress throughout the entire season. He took a big step up last week.

  • Woods picks Kentucky Wesleyan...

    After helping lead the Henry County girls’ golf program to its current top-notch status, Samantha Woods has decided to continue her golf career with Kentucky Wesleyan College next school year.

    The Henry County High School senior decided on Kentucky Wesleyan a few months ago but made it official with a signing inside the high school’s Media Room last Tuesday at noon. She becomes the first Henry golfer to sign with a college team since April Hayden and Nikki Chilton committed to Georgetown College in 2005.

  • First time out for EHS

    After a delay in opening the 2010 track season, the Eminence Warriors officially started the season at the Oldham County All-Comers last Thursday night.

    Steve Frommeyer, the team’s head coach who is also the school’s principal and head football coach, said he was pleased with Eminence’s performance, especially considering he mostly had middle schoolers competing at the high school-level meet. For most of the Eminence athletes, it was their first-ever meet and just the second time they had been on a track.

  • The Henry County track team...

    After a busy week packed with races, the Henry County track team will now get back to the track to focus on training.

    The Cats competed at the Western Hills Middle School All-Comers last Wednesday, the Oldham County All-Comers on Thursday, the Harry Greschel Christian Academy Invitational on Saturday and the Shelby County All-Comers on Tuesday, making for a busy stretch of races. Sedrick Williams, the new head coach, said all the racing has made the training suffer, and now wants to focus his attention on the days between meets.

  • Warriors play best game of...

    In their best baseball game this season, the Eminence Warriors batted .303 as a team, had 10 hits, struck out twice and committed just two errors. But it wasn’t enough as the Warriors took a 15-13 loss to Berea on Saturday afternoon in an offensive-dominated showdown.

    Berea scored 11 runs in the third inning alone and held off Eminence in the final inning to win by two runs. It was an improvement for the Warriors, who dropped to 0-5 with the loss.

  • Ray Graham excited about...

    The new guy in charge of continuing the recent success of the Henry County High School football program got the chance to showcase his team for the first time last Wednesday night.

    Ray Graham and his Wildcats concluded the allowable 10 days of spring training with a Red-White football game. It offered a glimpse into what 2010 holds for the Cats, and gave Graham the opportunity to watch his future players in game-like situations.

  • It’s a tough week for...

    Heading into last week, the Eminence Lady Warriors knew it was going to be a tough stretch of softball games. And they were right.

    Playing against two teams ranked top-25 in the state and another team that has the best record in the entire 8th Region, Eminence lost all four games to drop its record to 2-6 on the season. The girls survived the week, head coach Bill Covington said, and they came through with their heads up.

  • After the six games, Henry...

    Considering 3-3 a “bad week” shows where the Henry County softball program is at — a place where the expectations are high and each loss hurts.

    The Ladycats, in a big week of games, beat Holy Cross (5-2) last Monday night, beat Gallatin County (12-1) on Tuesday night, lost to Owen County (2-0) on Thursday, lost to George Rogers Clark (5-2) on Friday, beat Magoffin County (15-0) on Saturday morning and lost to Western Hills (4-0) on Saturday afternoon. The last three games were part of the Capital City Showcase in Frankfort.

  • Enjoying this weather, and...

    I don’t need a thermometer to tell me it’s feeling hot outside.

    I can’t help but to be happy this time of the year — with the nice weather, finally, and spring sports now in full force. I try to be in a bad mood and it just isn’t working. No joke.
