  • Four straight wins for the HC...

    Putting together their first winning streak of 2010, the Henry County Wildcats beat Owen County (9-4) last Monday night, Christian Academy-Louisville (8-7) last Tuesday night and Grant County (4-0) on Wednesday — the baseball team started the streak with a win over Walton-Verona (11-3) the week before for four straight.

    They lost two games to Kentucky Country Day (6-5, 3-0) on Saturday, but the four-game winning streak showed the team’s progress and where they could be headed. It was just what coach Austin Hunsaker was looking for.

  • Ladycats are 14-5 at midway point

    The Henry County softball team went 1-2 last week, and Matt Wright said he was pleased with all three outings, which left his team at 14-5 overall with the postseason one month away.

    While the season reached the midway point, the Ladycats lost to Grant County (3-0) last Tuesday night, and beat Trimble County (10-0) on Wednesday and Walton-Verona (8-3) on Thursday.

  • I sure do miss the rivalry

    I was ready for this one.

    I had my schedule all planned out: a pre-game story on the upcoming Henry County-Eminence baseball showdown to increase the hype in this week’s issue, followed by in-depth coverage complete with plenty of pictures next week. I even highlighted the game in the Spring Sports Preview released last month as a must-see game.

    April 28 was a day I had circled, but I was wrong.

  • It’s a first win for...

    After starting out with six straight losses, the Eminence baseball team won its first game of the season last Monday night in a 11-2 outing over Silver Grove.

    It was not only the first check in the win column, but the best overall game the Warriors have played this season. They finished with 14 hits, committed just one error and Brandon Mitchell was solid on the mound. It was, in the words of head coach Mark Payton, the first complete game they have put together.

  • EHS softball on longest streak...

    Entering his first season in charge of the Eminence softball team, Bill Covington had one focus in mind — building the program with progress throughout the entire season. He took a big step up last week.

  • Woods picks Kentucky Wesleyan...

    After helping lead the Henry County girls’ golf program to its current top-notch status, Samantha Woods has decided to continue her golf career with Kentucky Wesleyan College next school year.

    The Henry County High School senior decided on Kentucky Wesleyan a few months ago but made it official with a signing inside the high school’s Media Room last Tuesday at noon. She becomes the first Henry golfer to sign with a college team since April Hayden and Nikki Chilton committed to Georgetown College in 2005.

  • First time out for EHS

    After a delay in opening the 2010 track season, the Eminence Warriors officially started the season at the Oldham County All-Comers last Thursday night.

    Steve Frommeyer, the team’s head coach who is also the school’s principal and head football coach, said he was pleased with Eminence’s performance, especially considering he mostly had middle schoolers competing at the high school-level meet. For most of the Eminence athletes, it was their first-ever meet and just the second time they had been on a track.

  • The Henry County track team...

    After a busy week packed with races, the Henry County track team will now get back to the track to focus on training.

    The Cats competed at the Western Hills Middle School All-Comers last Wednesday, the Oldham County All-Comers on Thursday, the Harry Greschel Christian Academy Invitational on Saturday and the Shelby County All-Comers on Tuesday, making for a busy stretch of races. Sedrick Williams, the new head coach, said all the racing has made the training suffer, and now wants to focus his attention on the days between meets.

  • Warriors play best game of...

    In their best baseball game this season, the Eminence Warriors batted .303 as a team, had 10 hits, struck out twice and committed just two errors. But it wasn’t enough as the Warriors took a 15-13 loss to Berea on Saturday afternoon in an offensive-dominated showdown.

    Berea scored 11 runs in the third inning alone and held off Eminence in the final inning to win by two runs. It was an improvement for the Warriors, who dropped to 0-5 with the loss.

  • Ray Graham excited about...

    The new guy in charge of continuing the recent success of the Henry County High School football program got the chance to showcase his team for the first time last Wednesday night.

    Ray Graham and his Wildcats concluded the allowable 10 days of spring training with a Red-White football game. It offered a glimpse into what 2010 holds for the Cats, and gave Graham the opportunity to watch his future players in game-like situations.
