  • Wildcats need a consistent bat,...

    In familiar fashion, the Henry County Wildcats relied on their pitching to keep them in two close baseball games last week, but their offensive output came up just shy as the Cats took back-to-back one-run losses.

    The Wildcats, who are on a three-game skid after winning 10 of 11 games, lost to Gallatin County (5-4) last Wednesday and Williamstown (4-3) Thursday, which left them at 12-6 with a few weeks remaining in the regular season.

    After a slow start, Eminence’s hard work is starting to pay off. Now, coach Steve Frommeyer hopes the team’s momentum will carry over for the rest of the season — accumulating with the Class A, Region 3 Championships the week of May 19 and the Kentucky State Track and Field Championships May 30-31.

    “Right now, our athletes are really excited about track, and it’s something I want to build off of,” Frommeyer said after his squad competed in the Carroll County All-Comers last Thursday afternoon.

  • Yikes! It's a bit scary

    I’m not going to lie, I’ve had enough panic attacks lately to keep me huffing and puffing for days. After trying to ride my bicycle to work and home on a daily basis, I’ve learned that I’m no macho man. Us skinny, muscleless guys usually aren’t, but it just took me a few weeks of biking on the Henry County roads to figure that out.

  • Going for fourth NCKC title

    Sports editor

    The Henry County softball team moved one step closer in winning its fourth straight North Central Kentucky Conference Tournament last Wednesday night when the Ladycats defeated Carroll County in first-round action.

    The Ladycats, who won their first NCKC title in 2005, wasted no time in putting away the Lady Panthers, scoring nine runs in the first inning and pulling away to a 16-0 victory after three innings of play.

    For the Eminence softball team, it’s been a familiar scenario — getting behind in the first inning and trying to dig out of the early deficit. And this was no different last week as the Lady Warriors lost to Spencer County (10-0) Thursday and Bardstown (16-2) Friday in two home games.

    Eminence has lost every game they’ve trailed this season, with just one win coming against Caverna (19-0) April 12.

  • Ladycats winless at Capital City...

    Sports editor

    It wasn’t exactly what the Henry County Ladycats wanted, but their three loses at the Capital City Classic over the weekend wasn’t as bad as the loss column might indicate.

    Henry took a 3-1 loss to Scott County Friday, then turned around on Saturday and took a 3-2 loss to Assumption and 3-2 loss to Franklin. Assumption and Franklin are ranked just outside the top-25 in the latest Kentucky Softball Coaches Association Poll, while Scott is ranked fourth.

  • Wildcats get refocused after...

    Sports editor

    The Henry County Wildcats dropped two baseball games last week to leave them at a still impressive 12-4 mark, but it might have been just what the Cats needed after riding an eight-game winning streak.

    “I think our kids hit reality that every game is tough and a battle,” Henry coach Austin Hunsaker said. “We have to stay mentally focused every inning, every bat, every pitch. I think we learned that what we did in previous games doesn’t really matter.”

  • Warriors pleased with Shelby...

    Sports editor

    Athlete per athlete, the Eminence Warriors might have had the best team performance at the Shelby County All-Comers last Tuesday night, scoring 44 points between five tracksters and finishing fifth in the team standings.

    The Warriors also left with a little more pride after producing five top-three finishes and one first-place. They were up against much larger schools, including Shelby County, Waggener, Male, Southern, Franklin County and Spencer County.

  • First win of season for Warriors

    The Eminence players hooted, hollered and gave high fives while jumping around the baseball field last Wednesday night. They couldn’t keep it in, not after they earned their first win of the season with a 7-4 outing over Evangel Christian.

    It was the Warriors first win in almost a year, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

    The Henry County track team had just eight athletes compete at the Eastern Relays, held at the University of Louisville’s track complex Saturday, but the Cats left Louisville with some of their best individual performances of the season.
