  • 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.

    During last Thursday’s Henry County High School Awards Night, seniors Larry Farmer and Kaitlyn Foree were named the top athletes during the 2007-08 school year. Farmer won the Ross Wallace Outstanding Male Athlete for the second consecutive year, while Foree won the Bev Parrish Outstanding Female Athlete for the first time.

    Athletes were nominated by Athletics Director Todd Gilley and varsity coaches, then selected by a committee composed of Gilley, Principal Graham Weid, head coaches and counselors.

    Sports editor

    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.

  • Ninth Annual Jonathan Adams...

    The 9th Annual Jonathan Adams Memorial Run/Walk will be held this Monday — Memorial Day — starting at Eminence’s pool parking lot.

    The one-mile walk will start at 9 a.m., followed by a 5K run at around 9:30. The cost for participation is $10, and t-shirts will be given to the first 100 registered. There will also be door prizes that are supplied by many area businesses that sponsor the event each year. Proceeds go towards the Crusade for Children.

  • Baughman wins Southern Tennis...

    Henry Baughman of Smithfield won the prestigious Southern Open Tennis Championships — a Category II National Tournament in the men’s 70-and-older division in Jackson, Miss., May 15-18.

    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. Baughman then defeated Courtney Henderson of Texas (6-3, 6-2) in the semifinals, and Nick Mackarenko of Georgia (6-4, 6-0) in the finals. Mackarenko is the former No. 1 ranked player in the Southern.

  • Rockets blast away from EHS

    Sports editor

    The Shelby County Rockets scored four runs in the first inning, 16 in a big second, then added nine more in the third and two in the fourth for a dominating 31-0 performance over Eminence in the opening round of the 30th District tournament.

    Monday’s convincing win advanced Shelby to the district finals this Wednesday against either host Spencer County or Anderson County, while Eminence ended its season at 3-17 with its final chapter written to a disappointing year.

  • 31st District tourneys postponed...

    Sports editor

    The Henry County baseball and softball teams were scheduled to open the 31st District tournaments Monday night, but were pushed back a day due to the heavy rain they swept through Gallatin County and left the fields a mess.

    If the weather allowed, the teams opened district play Tuesday night instead, with the finals scheduled for Wednesday.

  • Warriors busy on the track with...

    When Monday morning rolled around, the Eminence track athletes probably had some tired legs. And for good reason.

    The team competed in three meets last week - Shelby County All-Comers Tuesday, Henry County All-Comers Thursday and Kentucky Country Day Invitational Saturday - while two of the athletes also play on the baseball team and they participated in the school's Field Day at the Family Activity Center in Shelbyville Friday.

  • EHS Warriors drop to a 3-14...

    The Eminence baseball team lost to Williamstown (9-3) last Monday and Burgin (11-0) Tuesday, which dropped the Warriors to 3-14 on the season - counting two forfeit wins.

    Against Williamstown, Eminence was in front after the first inning and the score was tied at 3 after the fifth, but the host Demons poured it on in the final two innings to score six runs and come away with the convincing six-run win.
