  • Another 7th-inning EHS loss

    In what was the third and final time the Eminence softball team played Williamstown this season, the visiting Warriors lost in the bottom of the seventh inning, 6-5, on Thursday night.

    The Warriors beat Williamstown on April 5, then lost to the Demons in the first round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament on April 15 and again on Thursday night.
    The loss, which dropped the Warriors to 7-5 on the season, marked the second straight game that they have lost in the bottom of the seventh inning.

  • Eminence falters in 5th, 6th

    The Warriors just ran out of steam.

    With the game scoreless entering the fifth inning, Trimble County went on a spurt to score the first five runs on the night, then added five more in its next bat to beat Eminence 10-0 on Thursday.

    The Warriors held visiting Trimble scoreless through four innings before faltering down the stretch, allowing the 10 runs in just two innings, which ended the game after six with the mercy-run rule. It dropped the Warriors to 1-19 and gave Trimble its ninth win (9-7) on the season.

  • It starts on the track

    Now that the Kentucky Derby is over, and 20-1 Animal Kingdom surprised the field in becoming this year’s winner, it’s time to turn my attention from the four-legged racers to the two-legged ones.

    The postseason for high school sports in Kentucky starts next week with regional track meets being held all across the state — the anticipated postseason for baseball and softball start the following week with district tournaments. I will admit that it’s been one fast regular season, and the school year already nearing its end is shocking to me.

  • Big week for Henry County...

    With less than two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Henry County softball team still has some important games to get in.

    The Ladycats have three of those games on their radar this week — hosting Seneca for Senior Night on Wednesday, hosting Gallatin County on Thursday for the top seed in the 31st District tournament, and playing Walton-Verona (at Gallatin) this weekend for the North Central Kentucky Conference title.

  • Wildcats beat Oldham County, 8-4

    The Henry County Wildcats beat Oldham County, 7-8, on Friday night in what was the only baseball game for Henry last week due to the weather.

    The Wildcats entered this week at 7-8 overall and have 11 games remaining in the regular season before the 31st District tournament arrives later this month.

    Henry coach Austin Hunsaker could not be reached for comments about the Oldham game, and no stats were available by press time. The game was at Oldham and lasted eight innings.

  • Warriors already match last year...

    After playing one of its best games this season followed by one of its worse in a double header at Calvary Christian on Saturday, the Eminence softball team has now matched its total wins from last year and are an impressive 7-4 heading into this week.

    The Warriors were near-perfect in game one on Saturday, getting solid pitching from Brenna Raisor, defense from her teammates and hitting by everyone at the plate in a 11-1 win. But in a complete reversal after a 20-minute break between games, they took a 4-3 loss in game two.

  • Magness named sportsman

    There is more to Luke Magness than what you see on the football field — more than his powerful right arm that threw for a school-record 6,280 career passing yards at Henry County High School, or even his ability to use his mind to pick apart defenses.

    Magness was the top passer in Class 3A this season with 2,510 yards in the air. He was named the District Four Player of the Year his last two seasons of high school. He was selected and played in the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game. He was named All-State Honorable Mention.

  • Henry breaks records at Eastern...

    Cassey Fischer broke the school record for 1,600 meters, Eric Phillips lowered his own school mark in the same event and Tommy Williams set a new personal record in the triple jump as the Henry County track team competed at the Eastern Relays all day Saturday.

  • Cats play top teams in tourney

    Playing in their most competitive softball tournament in a long time, the Henry County Ladycats beat Nelson County on Friday night before losing to Eastern, Bullitt Central and Reidland on Saturday in the Bullitt County Invitational Tournament.

  • Thomas More College gets Byrone...

    Entering his senior season in the summer, Eminence’s Byrone Foree asked his football coaches what his chances were of playing at the next level.

    Larry Montgomery said Foree could not play football in college, that he hadn’t proved himself yet, but that he could prove him wrong. Mark Meadows went a different route, saying it was up to Foree if Foree could play in college, that it mattered what he had in his heart.
