  • Time to get outside for spring...

    Yes, it’s that time. I can hear it, see it, feel it and smell it. Spring sports are among us once more.

    Like always at this time of the year, I’m eager. Eager for the bats to start cracking, to watch the pop flies go soaring, to feel the sunshine and to smell the freshly-cut grass. You have to love spring, and nothing reminds me more of this than the Spring Sports Preview I release each March.

    With the first track meet now behind them and a long list of meets still left, new coach Sedrick Williams and his Henry County Cats are eager to get the program headed in the right direction.

    Williams took over the Henry track team in February with a long-term approach for a program that has had three head coaches in as many years. His focus: building a foundation and progressing each year.

  • From the Sideline

    Players to Watch

    TJ Cooper: The Eminence High School senior has qualified for the Kentucky State Track and Field Championship in the high jump and looks to lead a track program that was in doubt this spring. The speedster, who rushed for more than 1,000 yards during football season in the fall, said he is focusing on the sprints.

    The high school baseball season starts this week and Austin Hunsaker says his Henry County Wildcats are very coachable and are more prepared for games, compared to previous seasons when the weather put a damper on pre-season play.

    Sports editor

    Finishing last season with an impressive 24 wins and winning their fourth straight 31st District title, the Henry County Ladycats are now ready to make the jump to the next level. Matt Wright, who was named Suzanne Cates’ replacement after her resignation, is the one in charge to get the job done.

  • EHS track continues at least one...

    After restarting the Eminence High School track team five years ago, Steve Frommeyer announced the program will continue this spring.

    Frommeyer, who is the school’s principal and head football coach, has decided to continue the program after students showed enough interest. He will be the head coach for a team that has struggled with numbers the last few seasons. There are around 12 athletes wanting to join the squad.

  • Hoopla... it’s back!

    It’s Henry Hoopla time, again.

  • Gilley makes the Wright choice

    Keeping a familiar face in charge of one of the most successful teams in the county, Henry County High School Athletics Director Todd Gilley hired Matt Wright to head the school’s softball program.

    Wright has been an assistant coach for the Ladycats for three seasons (2006-2008) and was the head football coach at Beth Haven for one season (2008). He takes over the program from Suzanne Cates, who resigned last June following her one year in charge. In what Gilley describes as an easy choice, Wright was hired just one month later.

  • Shelby beats South for 8th...

    Playing inside Henry County High School’s legendary Roy L. Winchester Gym for the 47th straight year, Shelby County beat South Oldham in the finals of the boys’ 8th Region tournament last Tuesday night.

    The Rockets, who will represent the region in the Sweet 16 State Basketball Tournament this week, won the regional title two years ago but were beaten by Anderson County on a last-second shot in 2009. They play the state’s top-ranked team, Ballard, in the opening round of the state tournament Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. inside Rupp Arena in Lexington.
