  • Stepping back down to assistant

    Suzanne Cates will be on the sideline next spring for the Henry County High School softball team, but as an assistant coach.

    Following a record-breaking year as the team’s head coach, Cates has decided to step back down to assistant — a position she held for three seasons under Jon Kasten from 2006 to 2008. She sent in her resignation letter before the season was complete, then finished the schedule. Another head coach has not been named but HCHS Athletics Director Todd Gilley said one is in mind.

  • Farmer takes trips overseas...

    Joining a training camp in Ohio last month, followed by trips to Guatemala and Honduras through the Athletes in Action Sports Ministry program, it has been one busy summer for Larry Farmer. But it’s a summer he will not want to forget.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.
