  • 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.

  • Shaky start for young Wildcats

    After finishing the first week with a 1-2 record, Henry County baseball coach Austin Hunsaker said his Wildcats need to play less tight and minimize mistakes in what he describes as a shaky start to a long season.

  • Former Henry players, teams...

    To help remember former players and motivate future ones, Henry County High School revealed several softball banners on Saturday before the Ladycats beat Harrison County 8-7.

    The new banners, which recognize past players and teams, will be placed around the softball field with the possibility of more banners being added as the program continues its quest to be a regional power.

  • Tracksters get needed experience

    Some of the top Kentucky track teams converged in Louisville for the Lenny Lyles Classic all day Saturday, and Henry County was right in the mix.

    It was an eye opener for the Cats, who officially started the 2010 season at the Carroll County All-Comers the week before but for many it was the first time going against so many top athletes in such an intense environment. Sedrick Wiliams, the team’s new head coach, hopes to use the meet, hosted by Central High School, as motivation.
