It attracted some of the top slalom competitors in the area, including Stillwater owner and state record-holder Leon Leonard.

    When Jarrod Singleton scored the first goal of the game last Tuesday night on Henry County’s home field, the Wildcats looked destined to win the school’s first boys’ soccer game after starting their inaugural season with two losses. Eventually, the team’s first lead of the season was erased and the visiting squad from Fairdale High School left with a 6-3 win. It was the first time HCHS hosted a boy’s soccer game in school history.

    For most of the Eminence cross country runners, Saturday’s Shelby County Invitational was their first time in an official race and, for the most part, it showed. The Warriors had conservative starts, miscalculated paces and were intimidated from the get-go, coach Scott McClamroch said. But now, with a race out of their way, McClamroch expects them to show improvements during the rest of the season.

    The Henry County cross country team took to the course for the first time this season Saturday at the Shelby County Invitational, and coach Ricky Drawbaugh was impressed with what he saw from the boys’ team, along with the three individuals he had running on the girls’ side.

  • Frommeyer gets credit for win 200

    Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed my time out of state in Gatlinburg last week, which was a needed vacation as my first real get-away in nearly two years. But I missed a whole lot while I was gone: I didn’t check my e-mail for six days; never got online; didn’t find out the scores of any of the local high school games; and never once tuned in to ESPN. My wife was proud — even though she got to watch the HGTV channel numerous times while we were in our cabin in downtown boonieville.

    For the first time this season, Henry County and Eminence met on the volleyball court last Tuesday night as the host Ladycats controlled the scoreboard from the start and cruised in for the 2-0 win in the best-of-three series.

    Henry never trailed during the county showdown and ended the match ahead 25-5 and 25-13. The Ladycats improved their early-season record to 3-2 with the win, while the Lady Warriors dropped to 0-5. For Eminence, a team trying to rebuild after a 2-19 season, the nerves might have got the best of the young but usually enthusiastic players.

    When Saturday morning arrives, the Henry County and Eminence cross country teams will be loading buses to take the short trip to Shelbyville to run in the Shelby County Invitational season openers for both squads in the second week of races across Kentucky.

    The Shelby Invitational will offer elementary, middle school, junior varsity and varsity races on a challenging course located across the street from East Middle School. The annual meet features some of the top schools from around the area.

    For the first time in a long time, Henry County High School will have a team playing in an All A Classic state tournament when the Ladycats take to the golf course against some of the top smaller schools across the state Sept. 13 in Richmond.

    Henry had been ruled ineligible to play in the All A Classic since 1999, but after the guidelines were changed to allow the smallest 125 schools to play in various tournaments, regardless of size, Henry became eligible this school year.
