    Henry County High School track coach Sedrick Williams and his high school athletes will host track clinics for the younger kids in the county on Friday, May 21. They will be at New Castle Elementary at 9 a.m., at Eastern Elementary at 12:15 p.m. and at Campbellsburg Elementary at 2 p.m.

  • Pole vaulters win at Sundown

    The Henry County track team got a big boost from its pole vaulters at the “Sundown” Invitational last week as seniors Travis Farmer and Alexa King won the event to help lead the Cats.

    The “Sundown” Invitational was hosted by Oldham County High School on Thursday night, but because the school does not have a pole vault mat, that event was moved to North Oldham High School and switched to Wednesday night instead.

  • Juggled lineup continues to...

    When coach Matt Wright scheduled a tough stretch of games late in the season, he was hoping to use it as an opportunity to test his team against top-caliber opponents just before the postseason arrived. But what happened last week was not what he had envisioned.

  • Three more baseball wins for...

    The Henry County baseball team started the 2010 season losing four of its first five games and eight of its first 10. Lately, things have changed inside the Henry dugout.

    After that first 10-game stretch, the Wildcats have won seven of nine, including three straight last week that continues to point the Cats in the right direction and at the right time.

    They are just one game away from .500 with a 9-10 overall record — something that seemed far fetched in mid-April when the Cats were struggling to get in the win column.

  • Both EHS teams win, on same...

    For the first time in six years, both the Eminence baseball and softball teams won on the same night and on their home fields.

    While the baseball squad was beating Evangel Christian 5-2 last Tuesday night, on the adjacent softball field the Lady Warriors were beating Williamstown 11-10. It was the first time both teams got wins on the same night at home since they defeated Carroll County on May 13, 2004.

  • 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.
