  • EHS baseball takes losses to...

    The Warriors lost two more games last week and are now 1-11 with the postseason just days away.

    The Eminence baseball team lost to Spencer County last Tuesday night, 15-1, then lost to Carroll County on Friday, 14-4. The Warriors beat Berea on April 19 and have lost the last five games. They play Shelby County (at Shelby) in the first round of the 30th District tournament on Monday night at 6 p.m.

  • Eminence track team finishes...

    Competing on the same track they will be at six days later — the site of this year’s Class A Region 5 Championship — the Eminence Warriors closed out the regular season at the Owen County All-Comers last Wednesday night.

    The Warriors had four athletes who participated in five events with Shelby Armstrong leading the way, finishing third in the 100-meter dash in 12.43 seconds and adding a fifth place in the long jump with a leap of 16 feet, 2 inches.

  • Cats race at NCKTC, North Hardin

    The Henry County track team closed out the regular season with the North Central Kentucky Track Conference last Thursday night and the North Hardin Invitational on Saturday, then competed in the Region 3 Championship on Tuesday and are awaiting the Class 2A state meet next week — for those athletes who qualified.

    It was a packed final few days of the regular season and start to the postseason. The state meet will be hosted by the University of Louisville next Thursday.

  • Impressive wins for Cats!

    Austin Hunsaker told his Henry County baseball players a few weeks ago that they had two choices, and that the fate of the season came down to what they chose — either continue to play poorly, like they were at the time, or play baseball the way they’re capable of to turn the ship around.

    They chose the latter.

  • Cats have seven 1sts at NCKC

    Finishing with seven first-place showings at the North Central Kentucky Conference Championships last Tuesday night on its home track, the Henry County squad finished third in the team standings in both the boys and girls results.

    Cassey Fischer and Eric Phillips won two individual events apiece, while Destany Crawford, Darien Ingram and Jesse Mann added one each. Henry also finished with two second-place and six third-place outings.

  • Another 7th-inning EHS loss

    In what was the third and final time the Eminence softball team played Williamstown this season, the visiting Warriors lost in the bottom of the seventh inning, 6-5, on Thursday night.

    The Warriors beat Williamstown on April 5, then lost to the Demons in the first round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament on April 15 and again on Thursday night.
    The loss, which dropped the Warriors to 7-5 on the season, marked the second straight game that they have lost in the bottom of the seventh inning.

  • Eminence falters in 5th, 6th

    The Warriors just ran out of steam.

    With the game scoreless entering the fifth inning, Trimble County went on a spurt to score the first five runs on the night, then added five more in its next bat to beat Eminence 10-0 on Thursday.

    The Warriors held visiting Trimble scoreless through four innings before faltering down the stretch, allowing the 10 runs in just two innings, which ended the game after six with the mercy-run rule. It dropped the Warriors to 1-19 and gave Trimble its ninth win (9-7) on the season.

  • It starts on the track

    Now that the Kentucky Derby is over, and 20-1 Animal Kingdom surprised the field in becoming this year’s winner, it’s time to turn my attention from the four-legged racers to the two-legged ones.

    The postseason for high school sports in Kentucky starts next week with regional track meets being held all across the state — the anticipated postseason for baseball and softball start the following week with district tournaments. I will admit that it’s been one fast regular season, and the school year already nearing its end is shocking to me.

  • Big week for Henry County...

    With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Henry County softball team still has some important games to get in.

    The Ladycats have three of those games on their radar this week — hosting Seneca for Senior Night on Wednesday, hosting Gallatin County on Thursday for the top seed in the 31st District tournament, and playing Walton-Verona (at Gallatin) this weekend for the North Central Kentucky Conference title.

  • Wildcats beat Oldham County, 8-4

    The Henry County Wildcats beat Oldham County, 7-8, on Friday night in what was the only baseball game for Henry last week due to the weather.

    The Wildcats entered this week at 7-8 overall and have 11 games remaining in the regular season before the 31st District tournament arrives later this month.

    Henry coach Austin Hunsaker could not be reached for comments about the Oldham game, and no stats were available by press time. The game was at Oldham and lasted eight innings.
