  • Campbellsburg White Sox claim...

    The Campbellsburg White Sox picked a good time to peak as they swept through the Henry County Youth Baseball Leagues 8-10 division with a perfect 4-0 record in the double-elimination tournament, ending with a 17-7 win over the Pleasureville Bulldogs last Monday night at Pleasureville's field.

  • Chris Cole wins Rod and Club...

    When a storm swept through the Henry County area last Saturday at 5 p.m., two hours before the scheduled start of the Henry County Rod and Gun Club fishing tournament, it shrunk the turnout to just 37 less than half of the number of fishermen and women that fill the lakes bank at a typical tournament.

    But in the end, after 12 hours of non-stop fishing, the predicted bad weather had stayed away in a turn of events that left those along the bank pleased. And the severe thunderstorm watch that lasted until 2 a.m. never flourished.

  • Swinging for the fence

    Between chasing the always elusive butterflys, drawing circles in the dirt and the sound of laughter, the young and enthusiastic players in the Pleasureville T-Ball League finished their season last Thursday evening. The players, age 4-7, played each Thursday at Pleasureville’s baseball field.

    Shortly after winning his 100th game on the diamond, Jon Kasten decided to step down from his coaching position for Henry County’s softball team.

    Kasten will back away from the program after leading the Ladycats to a 17-14 season, the 31st District title and a third straight appearance in the 8th Region tournament, where the squad lost to Shelby County (8-5) in opening-round action.

  • Nationals come from bottom...

    The Nationals erased four earlier losses to the Renegades with two surprising wins at New Castles field Monday night to claim the championship in the Henry County Youth Baseball Leagues 11- and 12-year-old division.

    The Renegades beat the Nationals to win the title last summer, then followed with a perfect season that included four more wins over the Nationals two in the regular season, one in the annual Spring Fling Tournament and one in post-season action that dropped the Nationals to the losers bracket.

  • Idea for stories, anyone?

    Im at a crossroad. I can either write about past athletes, teams or coaches like Ive done the past three summers or choose another un-thought-of topic that I just cant grasp yet. Im hoping you can help me out a bit.

    For the first time since the turn of the century, Henry County High School will get its chance to shine against some of the smaller schools across the state in the All “A” Classic, which includes tournaments held annually in most of Kentucky’s high school sports.

    Under near-perfect weather, Eminence’s Stillwater Lake hosted Kentucky’s first water ski competition of the season Saturday with a smaller turnout than normal.

    Just 18 skiers competed in the slalom-only event, which was down more than 20 percent from previous years. But there were still plenty of solid performances for the first competition of the season.
