  • Oldham beats Wildcats 6-1 in...

    The Henry County baseball team’s winning season hit an ending point on Monday night as the Wildcats took a 6-1 loss to Oldham County in the first round of the 8th Region tournament.

    After starting with an early-season 2-8 record, the Cats stepped up their play down the homestretch to even up their record and move ahead of the .500 mark. They finished second in the 31st District tournament to earn a berth into the regional tournament, then lost to Oldham in the opening round for a 16-14 record.

  • Fall on final hurdle alters...

    And just like that, it was over. With a single fall, history was altered and the final chapter was written to one of the best Henry County High School athletes.

    The story of Brittany Crawford had no state titles, but it did have plenty of feel-good moments with some blazing results that included school records, numerous wins and two second-place finishes against the best in the state. The one race she wanted so badly to win, she did not even get the chance to finish.

    For the full story, see this week's Henry County Local, available on newsstands across the county.

  • Henry’s 7-5 win over...

    The streak lives on.

    Each year since the Henry County softball team made the switch from the 30th District to the 31st District in the state’s 2006 realignment, the Ladycats have won the district title. This year was no different.

  • Grant ends HCHS softball season

    Through everything the Henry County softball program has been through — the ups and downs that come with a full season of games — the Ladycats accomplished all of their goals minus one.

  • Cooper wins high jump, ranked...

    Eminence’s TJ Cooper cleared the crossbar at 6-foot-2 at the Region 5 Championship on Saturday afternoon to become the regional champ in the high jump and advance to the Class A state meet one week later.

    He came through in the clutch. The senior set a personal best by three inches, was just one inch away from tying Ed Berry’s school record and extended Eminence’s streak of qualifying a high jumper for the state meet to six years. This Saturday at the University of Louisville, Cooper will get the chance to leave his mark as one of the best jumpers in Class A.

  • Tracksters compete at NCKTC...

    Brittany Crawford picked up four individual wins for Henry County, TJ Cooper was third in the high jump to lead Eminence, and both high schools got plenty of action at the North Central Kentucky Track Conference hosted by Walton-Verona last Thursday night.

  • Wildcats advance in tourney with...

    It was not the prettiest way to win a baseball game, but it was enough to get the job done when it matters the most.

  • Improved EHS girls end season

    It was not the ending first-year head coach Bill Covington was looking for, but he said the entire 2010 season was a success as the Eminence softball team won its most games in six seasons and appears to be on an upswing.

    The Lady Warriors, playing at host Anderson County on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament, lost to the Lady Bearcats 15-0 in three innings. It was the season finale for a squad that closed out the year with a 7-18 record, the most wins since Eminence had the same record in 2004.

  • Injured Ladycats back on track,...

    With a 5-0 win over Carroll County on Monday night, the Henry County Ladycats positioned themselves for a fifth consecutive 31st District softball championship – the victory advanced the Cats to Tuesday night’s finals against Owen County, which was past deadline and will be in next week’s Local.

    Playing at Owen County High School on Monday in the first of two opening-round games, the Ladycats got base runners on every at bat, held Carroll to just three the entire night and came away with the shutout win.

  • Crawford picks Campbellsville

    Wanting to help build a program instead of competing in an established one, Henry County track star Brittany Crawford picked Campbellsville University over the University of the Cumberlands, ending the speculation over which school she would attend.

    Crawford is still writing her final chapter to her high school athletic career with the state meet still one week away, but has already committed to Campbellsville. It was a school she really liked when she first took a trip to the campus as a freshman, and in the end the school she chose. It felt like the right place for her.
