    In perhaps its greatest feat yet, the Henry County softball team completely dominated the 31st District this season in route to its third straight 31st District championship.

    The Ladycats 10-0 win over Owen County in the finals last Thursday night left them a perfect 9-0 against district opponents and, more impressively, they outscored the three opponents 107-0.

    For the first time in a decade, the Henry County baseball team came away with a district championship last Thursday night, defeating the host Gallatin County squad to earn its first district title since 1998.

    Back then, names like Troy Jones, David Cox and Clint Smith filled the stat book to lead the Wildcats. But this year, it was Tyler Cox, Anthony Palmer, Ben Roberts and Tommy Wilson — all named to the All-District Team following the tournament — who led the charge.

    Eminence’s Ed Berry had his best day on the track at the Class A, Region 2 championships in Bardstown Saturday — when it mattered the most.

  • Coach reaches milestone

    When Jon Kasten and his Ladycats celebrated a 10-0 victory over Harrison County May 10, it was more than just another check in the win column. It also marked the 100th time Kasten came out on top during his head coaching career on the softball field.

    True, a lot of what’s achieved on the field is because of the players. But sometimes, the coach should get the credit, too. Thanks to Henry County Athletics Director Todd Gilley, who pointed out Kasten’s achievements to me last week, this coach isn’t going unnoticed.

    After two and a half innings of play, the Eminence softball team’s season came to a screeching halt Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament.

    Playing the defending district champs, and one of the top teams in the entire 8th Region, the young Lady Warriors were no match for the overpowering Shelby County squad as the Lady Rockets went up early and cruised in for the 19-0 victory.

    In the only county showdown on the diamond this season, the Henry County Ladycats came away with a convincing 13-0 win over the Eminence Lady Warriors last Tuesday night.

    Henry’s Kaitlyn Foree ended her final home game of her career with a bang — pitching a perfect five innings and leading the Cats to an undefeated 9-0 home record this season. It was also Senior Night for Henry, and marked the last time Foree faced cross-town rival Eminence.

    In his first matchup, Baughman defeated Willis Anderson of North Carolina (6-4, 7-6). Anderson is currently ranked No. 2 in the 9-state Southern.
