    Former Eminence Warrior first baseman Todd Adams has continued his baseball career this year as a freshman for the Pikeville University Bears. Adams played first base and some outfield this year mostly for the JV team.

  • Lady Cats' win over Carroll...

    Though the baseball, softball and track seasons are now over, there were highlights aplenty.

    1.  The Henry County Lady Cats defeated the Carroll County Panthers in the district tournament to qualify for the regional tournament.

    The Lady Cats had only three seniors on this year’s team and no juniors but showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with in the future as they knocked the cover off the ball most of the season. The team had an up and down season that included a lot of good hitting and fielding miscues.
