  • Lady Cats power past Owen, 15-6

    Early in their game against Owen County on April 10, the Henry County Lady Cats found themselves in a hole.

    The Lady Cats scored a run to open the game, but Owen County struck back with five runs in their half of the first inning.

    But the Lady Cats came back, adding two runs each in the second and third innings. The Rebels briefly took the lead again in the bottom of the third inning, but the Lady Cats negated that, scoring 10 more runs the rest of the game, to take the 15-6 win.

  • Eminence digs deep, finds...

    With a 2-5 record, the start of the Eminence Warriors baseball season has been a little lackluster.

    But Warriors’ head coach Mark Payton sees glimmers of hope ahead.

    “I think our pitching and our defense are our strengths right now,” he said. “What needs to improve is our competitiveness and our focus.”

    Against Gallatin County on Thursday, April 12, the Warriors seemed to lose that focus, if just for a moment before going on to win their first Class A tournament game, 8-7.

  • Warriors pull out 4-3 win over...

    In previous seasons, it might not have turned out this way.

    Thursday afternoon, the Eminence Warriors pulled out a 4-3 win against Lexington Christian Academy.

    “We didn’t play particularly well, but we still found a way to win,” head coach Bill Covington said.

    The team lacked focus, Covington said, striking out nine times in the game — the poorest batting performance of the season. “We have not done that the entire year, even against some decent pitchers,” he said.

  • Youngest members shine for Cats...

    In their latest venture, a home meet on Tuesday April 10, some of the Henry County High School track team’s youngest members roared the loudest.

    Freshmen Destany Crawford and Jesse Mann got 1st place finishes in the 100-meter hurdles and pole vault, respectively, to lead the team.

  • Morris gets a turkey

    Chance Morris shot this 25lb 11 inch beard 1” spears turkey on a family farm this past Sunday, April 8. Chance is a sixth grade student at Henry County Middle School.

  • Baughman wins

    Henry Baughman won the 75 and over singles title in the Southern Hardcourt Tennis Championships, in Augusta, Ga., this past weekend. Baughman was seeded No. 1 and got a first-round bye, then defeated Jack Myers (Ga.) 61,-6-2 in the semi-finals. He defeated Dick Briggs (Ala.) 6-0, 6-1 in the finals for the championship.

  • Spring break trip nets ‘valuable...

    Though they spent their spring break in Florida, it was a working trip for the Henry County Lady Cats.

    After opening the 17th Florida Beach Bash with a 9-0 loss to Heath, the Lady Cats dropped four more games in the tournament against strong competition. It was, coach Jon Kasten said, a valuable experience as the team moves forward.

    After the Heath game, the Lady Cats faced Franklin, Ohio, in a side trip to the Coco Beach Expo on Tuesday, April 3.

  • Warriors off to 5-0 start

    Just five games into their season, the Eminence softball team is off to its best start in years — 5-0.

    “So far... we’ve made very, very few mental mistakes,” head coach Bill Covington said. “I can take a physical error a whole lot more than I can take a mental error, and we really have done a good job this year.”

    Covington said the Warriors are running the bases intelligently and making the right defensive throws. So far, he said, he can think of just one play “where we didn’t do the right thing.”

  • Cats split spring break games

    The Henry County baseball team would have had a busy spring break with four games scheduled, but Mother Nature wiped out two of those games. The Cats split the remaining two games against a pair of Louisville schools.

    On Tuesday, April 3, the Wildcats took on Christian Academy of Louisville for the second time this season. The Cats lost this meeting 9-6 despite a spirited seventh inning rally.

  • Short crew of track Cats sets...

    The Henry County Track team traveled to North Hardin High School to compete against some of the top teams in the state last Saturday.

    The team was short handed as many of the athletes were away on Spring Break, but many of those who competed had a good day.

    Destany Crawford, Cathryn Fischer and Jesse Mann set personal and season best records in multiple events. Fischer equaled her season best long jump and set a personal record in the 300-meter hurdles by 1.2 seconds.
