  • Wildcats advance in tourney with...

    It was not the prettiest way to win a baseball game, but it was enough to get the job done when it matters the most.

  • Improved EHS girls end season

    It was not the ending first-year head coach Bill Covington was looking for, but he said the entire 2010 season was a success as the Eminence softball team won its most games in six seasons and appears to be on an upswing.

    The Lady Warriors, playing at host Anderson County on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament, lost to the Lady Bearcats 15-0 in three innings. It was the season finale for a squad that closed out the year with a 7-18 record, the most wins since Eminence had the same record in 2004.

  • Injured Ladycats back on track,...

    With a 5-0 win over Carroll County on Monday night, the Henry County Ladycats positioned themselves for a fifth consecutive 31st District softball championship – the victory advanced the Cats to Tuesday night’s finals against Owen County, which was past deadline and will be in next week’s Local.

    Playing at Owen County High School on Monday in the first of two opening-round games, the Ladycats got base runners on every at bat, held Carroll to just three the entire night and came away with the shutout win.

  • Crawford picks Campbellsville

    Wanting to help build a program instead of competing in an established one, Henry County track star Brittany Crawford picked Campbellsville University over the University of the Cumberlands, ending the speculation over which school she would attend.

    Crawford is still writing her final chapter to her high school athletic career with the state meet still one week away, but has already committed to Campbellsville. It was a school she really liked when she first took a trip to the campus as a freshman, and in the end the school she chose. It felt like the right place for her.

  • New Henry County Middle School...

    After discussions over the possibility of jump starting a Henry County Middle School baseball program during the previous few years, it was given life in 2010 and looks to continue in future seasons.

  • Rahm follows brother to KWC

    Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Zach Rahm has decided to play football for Kentucky Wesleyan College in the fall.

    Rahm decided with Kentucky Wesleyan a few months ago but made it official last Monday with a signing inside the high school’s Media Room. He will reunite with his older brother Josh, who graduated from Henry County in 2008 and currently plays for Wesleyan.

  • Warriors finished in 32-0 outing

    Suffering its biggest loss this season, the Eminence baseball team was dominated by Shelby County, 32-0 in five innings, on Monday night in the first game of the 30th District tournament.

  • Coach says EHS is still...

    After celebrating their best stretch of softball in at least a decade, the Eminence Lady Warriors dropped both of their games last week for a 5-9 overall record entering the second half of the season.

    The Lady Warriors, who were coming off three consecutive wins for the first time since scores were kept by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in 2002, lost to Carroll County (6-3) on Tuesday and Spencer County (12-2) on Thursday. Bill Covington, the new coach in charge of rebuilding the program, said his players are still progressing despite the two losses.

  • St. X meet preparation for region

    Led by first-place finishes from Brittany Crawford and Alexa King, the Henry County track team competed at the Coach Cooper/Brother Borgia Invitational hosted by St. Xavier High School all day Saturday. Afterwards, first-year Henry coach Sedrick Williams said the focus is shifting towards next Wednesday’s all-important regional championship.

  • 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.
