  • 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.

  • HCHS to host track clinics at...

    Henry County High School track coach Sedrick Williams and his high school athletes will host track clinics for the younger kids in the county on Friday, May 21. They will be at New Castle Elementary at 9 a.m., at Eastern Elementary at 12:15 p.m. and at Campbellsburg Elementary at 2 p.m.

    Also, a track meet for those athletes will be hosted on the high school’s track on Tuesday night, June 1, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Contact the schools for more information.

  • Pole vaulters win at Sundown

    The Henry County track team got a big boost from its pole vaulters at the “Sundown” Invitational last week as seniors Travis Farmer and Alexa King won the event to help lead the Cats.

    The “Sundown” Invitational was hosted by Oldham County High School on Thursday night, but because the school does not have a pole vault mat, that event was moved to North Oldham High School and switched to Wednesday night instead.

  • Juggled lineup continues to...

    When coach Matt Wright scheduled a tough stretch of games late in the season, he was hoping to use it as an opportunity to test his team against top-caliber opponents just before the postseason arrived. But what happened last week was not what he had envisioned.

  • Three more baseball wins for...

    The Henry County baseball team started the 2010 season losing four of its first five games and eight of its first 10. Lately, things have changed inside the Henry dugout.

    After that first 10-game stretch, the Wildcats have won seven of nine, including three straight last week that continues to point the Cats in the right direction and at the right time.

    They are just one game away from .500 with a 9-10 overall record — something that seemed far fetched in mid-April when the Cats were struggling to get in the win column.
