  • Tied for 1st in state, Berry...

    General Manager

    Just what Ed Berry had for breakfast last Tuesday, Steve Frommeyer doesn’t know, but the Eminence High School senior apparently ate his Wheaties.

    In a track meet at Kentucky Country Day, Berry competed in just four events. He won three. He jumped and ran away with four personal bests. He even set a school record.

    “(Ed) probably had his best overall meet of his career,” Frommeyer said. Even teammate John Reed picked up a personal best.

  • HCHS track sends four to Eastern...

    Four Henry County athletes attended the Eastern Relays Saturday, April 25.

    Brittany Crawford placed fourth overall in the 100-meter hurdles, while Cassie Fischer completed in the one and two mile races, but coach Jacob Crowe did not have their results.

    Crowe said the team’s pole vaulters did not perform well, after previously meeting personal records.

    “They’ve moved up in poles, met their personal records, met their goals,” Crowe said. “We bought new poles and they’re still adjusting to them.”

  • Bagdad 5K

    The Bagdad Days 5K run/walk is Saturday, May 9, at 8 a.m. To pre-register, contact Phyllis Bailey at (502)747-5256 or pbailey01@insightbb.com.

  • Sandman is ‘classic...

    I turned on the television last Wednesday night, flipped the station to ESPN Classics and scrolled to the right to see what was coming on that night — it’s a ritual I do daily, along with the History Channel and Versus.

  • Ladycats are in it to win it

    Sports editor

    The Ladycats’ defense kept them in it and their offense won it last Thursday night as Henry County’s softball team came away with a thrilling 5-3 win over Grant County.

    It took an extra inning and a heroic hit by Taylor Clark to seal the win for the Ladycats, who were trailing 3-0 after the second inning, tied the game during a big fourth-inning bat, and went ahead in the bottom of the eighth.

  • Baughman wins Bocage

    Henry Baughman of Smithfield won the 70-and-over singles title of the 41st annual Bocage Invitational Category 2 National Tennis Championships in Baton Rouge, LA.

     

  • HCHS Baseball defeats Owen County

    The Henry County Wildcats defeated Owen County 10-1 Friday, April 17. Coach Austin Hunsaker could not be reached for an interview, and did not return messages left for him before press-time.

  • Determination

    General Manager

    After a brutal loss at Spencer County, it could have been an easy thing for the Eminence High School softball team to hang its head.

    But not these Lady Warriors, not this time.

    After falling 16-0 to Spencer County last Tuesday in a wet, cold game that was called after just three innings, the Lady Warriors hit the road Thursday to play Evangel Christian, a team that to that point was undefeated.

  • Berry, Cooper jump personal...

    General Manager

    Six feet, two inches.

    It’s the second best high jump in the state. And it’s a personal best for Eminence High School’s Ed Berry.

    Last week, Berry and teammate T.J. Cooper took their high jump skills to Oldham County where the two placed first and second respectively. Cooper’s jump cleared 5’8” — also a personal best.

  • Ladycats finish what they...

    In a not-so-ideal situation, the first four innings were played on Thursday, April 2, the final three innings were played on Saturday, April 11, and the Henry County softball team came away with a 7-0 win over Carroll County.
