  • Enjoying this weather, and...

    I don’t need a thermometer to tell me it’s feeling hot outside.

    I can’t help but to be happy this time of the year — with the nice weather, finally, and spring sports now in full force. I try to be in a bad mood and it just isn’t working. No joke.

  • Warriors try to find a way to win

    Through their opening three baseball games, the Eminence Warriors are still searching for their first win this season but coach Mark Payton says the potential is definitely there.

    The Warriors opened 2010 with a 17-1 loss to Anderson County on March 31, then took a 29-13 loss to Trimble County last Tuesday and a 20-2 loss to Williamstown on Thursday in the first round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament. All three outings followed a similar storyline with Eminence hanging close in the early innings before faltering down the stretch with late-game woes.

    HCHS Football

    Ray Graham, preparing for his first season as the Wildcats head football coach, announced that his Henry County High School football team will have its spring game this Wednesday starting at 7 p.m.

    Graham said there will be an admission price of either $1 or $2. Everyone in the community is invited to watch the 2010 Wildcats in action under the lights. Graham takes over the football program from Chris Engstrand, who resigned shortly after the season.

  • Frankfort gives EHS second loss

    After losing to Frankfort 11-0 last Tuesday night at home, Eminence coach Bill Covington said Frankfort is the best softball team he has faced so far.

    Frankfort went ahead early and stretched its lead to 11-0 after five innings, ending the contest two innings short with the mercy-run rule. Frankfort opened the season with a 13-0 win over Lexington Christian the night before for a 2-0 start; Eminence evened its record at 2-2.

  • Wildcats continue roller-coaster...

    Playing its best baseball this season before dropping the next three games, the Henry County baseball team continued its roller coaster-like season last week with one win, three more losses and a 2-7 overall record.

    The Wildcats had its best offense game last Tuesday night in a 13-7 win over South Oldham, then took a 4-2 loss to Seneca on Wednesday and a 14-2 loss to Ballard Memorial on Friday — all three games were part of the Seneca Spring Break Bash. The Cats closed out the week with an 8-0 loss to Bishop Brossart on Saturday.

  • Wildcat Relays

    Erick Butler won the Male Athlete of the Meet award, Brittany Crawford was just 2.5 points away from being the Female Athlete of the Meet and the Henry County track team had possibly its best overall performance this season at the Wildcat Relays on Saturday.

    The Henry boys finished with 105 points for fourth in the team standings, while the Henry girls finished with 101.5 points for third. It was, by far, the most combined points Henry had scored in an invitational in 2010 and points the Cats in the right direction as the season progresses.

  • Ladycats go 5-1 in Florida Beach...

    Beating some top schools in a week packed with softball games, the Henry County softball team finished the Florida Beach Bash with a 5-1 record and are currently 10-1 overall.

  • North Oldham beats Henry, twice

    Entering the 2010 baseball season, Austin Hunsaker stressed the importance of having confidence and maintaining composure during a season full of question marks with a young, inexperienced team. Now, after two weeks that has included one win and four losses, he is stressing it even more to his Henry County squad.

  • Two meets in a three-day stretch

    Led by a combined 11 first-place finishes last week, the Henry County track team competed at the Shelby County All-Comers on Tuesday and the Henry County All-Comers on Thursday in a busy three-day stretch.

  • Big opening-day loss, but coach...

    Starting against Anderson County in the season opener last Wednesday night, Eminence baseball coach Mark Payton is trying to break his team’s mold of playing well in spurts with long, unproductive droughts.

    Payton said he was happy with his players against a team of Anderson’s caliber in the first game of 2010, but there were some stretches where his team fell apart. Eminence allowed 12 runs in the top of the third inning and Anderson drove away with a 17-1 win after five innings. It was Anderson’s seventh game of the season, and Eminence’s first.
