  • First EHS football signing since...

    It was no joke. When Shiven Harris signed to play football for Kentucky Wesleyan College on April Fool’s Day, Eminence High School got its first football signing in almost 10 years.

    There have been others from EHS who have, and continue to play football at the next level — notably Zach Young at Eastern Kentucky University and Ed Berry at the University of Kentucky — but Harris becomes the first to actually sign a letter of intent to play for a college since Marcus Wright signed with Kentucky State University in 2002.

  • Bats come alive for Wildcats

    Austin Hunsaker said his main objective last week during Henry County’s spring break was to come together as a team. After winning two of three games at the Seneca Spring Break Tournament, scoring an impressive 39 runs during the stretch, he said his Wildcats did just that.

  • Eminence starts 0-4

    The Eminence baseball team has dropped its first four games of the season and had a short stay in the 8th Region All “A” Classic with an opening round loss.

    The Warriors lost to Anderson County (12-1) in the opener on March 29, and followed with losses to Owen County (13-2), Trimble County (6-3) and Gallatin County (3-0) for the 0-4 start.

  • Updates on spring sports

    Now that the weather appears to be a little kinder to us — I did get a suntan during my needed weekend getaway to Cumberland Lake — it’s time to take a look over the first few weeks of the spring season. There have been plenty of highlights.

  • Henry softball wins five...

    After splitting its first two games of the season, coach Matt Wright said his Henry County softball team needed to focus more, limiting errors in the field and having a good mental approach at the plate. And after playing six more games last week, Wright said Henry did just that.

    The Ladycats strung together five straight wins, beating Walton-Verona, Owen County, Carroll County, Upper St. Clair (PA) and Anderson County, and lost to a tough Union County squad to leave them at 6-2 on the season. The final three games were part of the Oldham County Spring Break Classic.

  • UConn and Crowe are winners

    It wasn’t the prettiest mens’ NCAA basketball tournament this year, but it sure was exciting.

    And after what was probably the ugliest game of all in the finale, Connecticut beat Butler, 53-41, late Monday in a horrid shooting night and the fate of this year’s tournament and Henry Hoopla contest were sealed.

  • Martin leaves program

    After Carter Martin decided to step away from his position as the Eminence girls’ basketball team’s head coach, Bill Covington and Jackie Elliot have been announced as co-head coaches of the program.

    Covington is Eminence’s head softball coach, Elliot is his assistant and, as a packaged deal, both will be head coaches of the basketball team starting next season.

  • Eminence 21, Sayre 1

    In what was the Eminence softball team’s biggest win in eight years, the Warriors opened the season in impressive fashion last Wednesday night with their 21-1 victory over Sayre in Lexington.

    The 21 points in a single game and the 20-point margin of victory was the most productive single-game scoring performance since the Warriors beat Evangel Christian 22-0 on April 1, 2003. It was the Warriors only game last week, which points them in the right direction with a season full of possibilities remaining.

  • Wildcats win two, but drop two...

    The Henry County baseball team opened and closed last week with wins, dropped two one-run games in two days, and are 3-5 overall two weeks into the season.

  • Eminence baseball opens season...

    The first two games of the season for the Eminence baseball team followed a similar storyline, and both ended in 11-run losses.

    The Warriors opened with a 12-1 loss to Anderson County last Tuesday night, then took a 13-2 loss to Owen County on Thursday. It gives the Warriors a 0-2 record entering the second week.

    Anderson used a big third inning to score eight runs, and ended the game with the 10-run mercy rule after five innings. And two days later, Owen jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and ended the game after six innings with the mercy rule.
