  • Shelby County ends Eminence’s...

    After a storm pushed the end of the season back one more night for both the Eminence baseball and softball teams, the Warriors were knocked out of the 30th District tournaments by Shelby County last Tuesday night.

    The baseball squad lost 16-0 and at the same Shelby complex the softball team lost 10-0. Both games lasted five innings, ended by the mercy-run rule.

  • Season over for Ladycats in...

    The season came to an end for the Henry County softball team on Monday with a 5-4 loss to Walton-Verona in the opening round of the 8th Region tournament.

    Trailing 4-0 heading into the sixth inning, the Ladycats rallied to even up the scoreboard but eventually lost by one run. The Cats ended the season as the runners-up in the 31st District tournament and with a 21-12 overall record.

    “I was proud of our girls today because they got down early and were able to fight back to make it a game,” Henry coach Matt Wright said afterward.

  • HCHS Track: Phillips finishes...

    Eric Phillips finished what was one of the best high school careers ever for a distance runner at Henry County and junior Cassey Fischer did what no Henry runner as ever done at the Class 2A State Meet on Thursday at the University of Louisville’s Cardinal Park.

    Phillips, who has written his name in the history books as the school-record holder at 1,600 meters earlier this season, capped off his high school running days with an 18th-place finish in the 1,600 and 16th in the 3,200 against the best in the state.

  • HCHS Softball's 31st...

    Ending the five years as the top team in the 31st District, the Henry County softball team lost to Gallatin County last Wednesday night to lose its first district tournament game since 2005.

    Playing at Carroll County High School, Henry’s 3-1 loss to Gallatin marked the first time the Ladycats had lost the district title since the state’s realignment, when they were placed from the 30th District to the 31st in 2006. They were 11-0 in the tournament since the switch, and had won the title in 2006-2010.

  • HC advances in 8th Region with...

    The Wildcats did not go ahead for good until the bottom of the sixth inning — when Jake Hartlage’s hit with two outs allowed Lance Williams enough time to cross home plate — and they held on to their 6-5 win in the opening round of the 8th Region tournament on Monday night.

    The Henry County baseball team won the 31st District title the week before and the Grant win gave the squad 20 wins on the season at 20-8, and kept them on a long winning streak that includes 14 straight victories.

  • Wildcats are 31st District...

    Completing the one goal that mattered the most, the Henry County baseball team defeated Owen County last Tuesday night and Carroll County on Wednesday to win the 31st District championship, bringing back to New Castle Henry’s first district title in three years.

  • Cats win 11 straight games!

    The wins keep piling up for the Wildcats, and just at the right time.

    The first of the streak came on April 29 in an 8-4 win over Oldham County, and 10 more followed during the next three weeks, leading through the rest of the regular season and into the 31st District tournament. That’s 11 consecutive wins, nearly a month without a loss.

  • Fischer, Phillips headed to...

    Cassey Fischer became the first runner from Henry County to qualify for the state meet in the three longest races on the track, Eric Phillips is making his first trip to state, and both distance specialists will be competing against the best in Class 2A this Thursday at the University of Louisville.

  • District tournament games pushed...

    Stormy weather conditions continue to hamper the 2011 baseball and softball seasons, right up to the end.

    As the postseason started on Monday night, a storm swept through the area, causing local first-round games to be delayed and eventually postponed until at least Tuesday. More storms are expected the rest of this week, leading up to Monday’s 8th Region tournaments. It might be a tricky postseason to get in all needed games.

  • EHS track ends year at region

    In what assistant track coach Steve Frommeyer described as a very promising year,

    Eminence’s track season came to an end at the Region 5 Championships last Tuesday night in Owen County as no Warrior qualified for the Class A state meet, hosted by the University of Louisville this Friday.

    The tracksters got a late start to the season, shortening the training time and total meets, starting after the school’s spring break and ending last Tuesday. Frommeyer said it was a good year.
