  • Travis Martin, No. 13, helps the...

    Sitting down during his normal pre-game routine just before the start of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Association baseball tournament in Berea, Travis Martin was so surprised he was named to the KIAC Second-Team that he wasn’t even ready to receive his award. But, after his name was called, the Asbury College sophomore quickly put on his cleats, stood up and hurriedly walked over to receive the award.

    For the 2007 Henry County High School graduate who turned a rocky start at Asbury into landing a starting position in less than two years, it was a shocker.

  • July 4th ruined by the rain

    Saturday was a sad, sad day in the Kendall household.

    I had already decided to write my column this week about a wiffleball game I had been planning the last couple of months. With the anticipation of the game in mind for a while now, I had envisioned some good story lines — maybe I would pitch a no-hitter or hit a game-winning homer. Heck, I thought about taping the game and making a highlight reel, maybe the top-10 plays. I was ready.

  • It's a 2nd trip to the...

    In her final try at earning a spot in the US Kids World Championships this year, MacKenzie Peyton held her emotions in check to shoot her best score and advance to the World Championships at Pinehurst Golf Course in North Carolina next month.

  • Eminence Coach 'D'...

    Six months after the sudden passing of Dewayne Douglas, the new Coach D Park in his remembrance is open in full throttle. It’s definitely worth taking a look at.

  • Martin wins Ladies Invitational...

    Louisville’s Krissy Martin has won the Henry County Country Club Ladies Invitational for the second time in three years, finishing three strokes ahead of Eminence’s Carolyn Adcock in a 36-person field last Wednesday afternoon.

    Martin finished with a 70 for 18 holes to win the championship flight, while Adcock finished at 73 for second and Joan Waldrup finished at 81 for third. Martin won the Ladies Invitational in 2007, Adcock won it in 2008 and Martin has now won it again in 2009 in the see-saw results. Martin plays at Nevel Meade Golf Course in Prospect.

  • Finally, I have an answer

    Every year after the Bev Parrish Outstanding Female Athlete and the Ross Wallace Outstanding Male Athlete winners are named, I hear the same question: who’s Ross Wallace? And every year I have the same response: not sure. Now, after some long-overdue research, I have the answer.

  • Yankees champs, again

    The Henry County Yankees came through in the clutch against the Eminence Rockies in the championship game of the Henry County Youth Baseball League Major League Division, scoring two runs in the top of the fifth inning to break open a tie and holding on for a slim 8-7 win.

  • Best kept secret in Henry Co.

    The Henry County Rod and Gun Club has been the best kept secret in Henry County for years, club president Ken Case said, but now he wants to get the secret out.

    For just $50 annually, a family can enjoy the luxury of a fish-stocked lake, hunting and camping seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Since Case became president in 2007, the membership has soared to its current 160 members. The club is looking to increase that number by 2010.

  • Springate named new coach

    Inside the high school’s cafeteria Monday night, Athletics Director Todd Gilley announced Derek Springate as the new boys’ basketball coach at Henry County High School.

    Springate, who was an assistant coach at West Jessamine last season, replaces Jason Holland, who left for Oldham County last month following five seasons at HCHS. After combing through all the applicants — including some impressive resumes — Gilley said Springate stood out the most.
