  • Wildcats continue roller-coaster...

    Playing its best baseball this season before dropping the next three games, the Henry County baseball team continued its roller coaster-like season last week with one win, three more losses and a 2-7 overall record.

    The Wildcats had its best offense game last Tuesday night in a 13-7 win over South Oldham, then took a 4-2 loss to Seneca on Wednesday and a 14-2 loss to Ballard Memorial on Friday — all three games were part of the Seneca Spring Break Bash. The Cats closed out the week with an 8-0 loss to Bishop Brossart on Saturday.

  • Wildcat Relays

    Erick Butler won the Male Athlete of the Meet award, Brittany Crawford was just 2.5 points away from being the Female Athlete of the Meet and the Henry County track team had possibly its best overall performance this season at the Wildcat Relays on Saturday.

    The Henry boys finished with 105 points for fourth in the team standings, while the Henry girls finished with 101.5 points for third. It was, by far, the most combined points Henry had scored in an invitational in 2010 and points the Cats in the right direction as the season progresses.

  • Ladycats go 5-1 in Florida Beach...

    Beating some top schools in a week packed with softball games, the Henry County softball team finished the Florida Beach Bash with a 5-1 record and are currently 10-1 overall.

  • North Oldham beats Henry, twice

    Entering the 2010 baseball season, Austin Hunsaker stressed the importance of having confidence and maintaining composure during a season full of question marks with a young, inexperienced team. Now, after two weeks that has included one win and four losses, he is stressing it even more to his Henry County squad.

  • Two meets in a three-day stretch

    Led by a combined 11 first-place finishes last week, the Henry County track team competed at the Shelby County All-Comers on Tuesday and the Henry County All-Comers on Thursday in a busy three-day stretch.

  • Big opening-day loss, but coach...

    Starting against Anderson County in the season opener last Wednesday night, Eminence baseball coach Mark Payton is trying to break his team’s mold of playing well in spurts with long, unproductive droughts.

    Payton said he was happy with his players against a team of Anderson’s caliber in the first game of 2010, but there were some stretches where his team fell apart. Eminence allowed 12 runs in the top of the third inning and Anderson drove away with a 17-1 win after five innings. It was Anderson’s seventh game of the season, and Eminence’s first.

  • Carroll win gives Cats 4-0 record

    Though Matt Wright warns the Henry County Ladycats are not where they need to be yet, he said they were able to put together their first “complete game” last Thursday night as they beat Carroll County 14-0 for a 4-0 start to the softball season.

  • Madness finished

    March Madness came to a finish on Monday night and, in the end, after the teams dwindled down to just two, it wasn’t decided until the final shot of the tournament.

    It was a fitting way to end this men’s NCAA basketball season, although the team most of America was rooting for came up one basket short of that Hollywood ending everyone seemed to be hoping for. Duke’s win wasn’t secured until Butler’s final shot was barely off target, allowing Duke to celebrate a 61-59 championship win.

  • EHS off to best start in five...

    For the first time in five years, the Eminence softball team started the season with a win and won two games in the opening week. It was just the start first-year head coach Bill Covington was looking for.

    The Lady Warriors beat Kentucky Country Day (13-6) last Wednesday night, lost to Waggener (23-11) on Thursday and beat Whitefield Academy (14-4) on Saturday for a 2-1 record after week one. It was the best start since 2005 when the Warriors were 2-0 through the first week and finished with a 6-13 overall record.

  • The Matt Wright era opens with...

    The Matt Wright era officially opened last week when the Henry County softball team defeated Carroll County on Tuesday and Harrison County on Saturday in what looks to be a promising year.
