  • HC Ladycats pick up pace late in...

    With the 31st District softball tournament just over the horizon, the Henry County Ladycats picked up their pace last week with wins over Holy Cross (2-0) Monday and Harrison County (10-0) Saturday, while taking a loss to Trimble County (6-0) Tuesday without five varsity starters.

    Following the 2-1 week, the Ladycats improved to 13-12 with the district tournament starting this Monday at Gallatin County. Henry, who has won the tournament in 2006 and 2007, will play the host Gallatin squad at 5:30 p.m.

    Few Henry County athletes are offered a chance to play at the next level, fewer take that offer, fewer join a college team long enough to play that first game, fewer come back for a second season, and still fewer play a complete four seasons.

    After school hours, on a typical day, Larry Farmer can been seen running laps around the track, sprinting along the backstretch or gutting out grueling intervals. It's a routine that has brought the Henry County High School student from an average middle school runner with signs of potential to possibly the best distance runner the school has ever produced.

    Watching from the sideline, Jon Kasten has seen Kaitlyn Foree throw thousands of pitches in a Henry County uniform. Strikes, balls and everything between. Kasten in the dugout and Foree in the pitcher’s circle — the way it’s been since Kasten took over the head coaching duties in 2004 and Foree moved into the spotlight as the team’s No. 1 pitcher in 2006.

    For the first time in nearly four years, the Henry County Ladycats did not hold up the championship trophy of the North Central Kentucky Conference following the final contest of the seven-team, single-elimination style tournament.

    Henry — who won the NCKC in 2005, 2006 and 2007 — was defeated by Trimble County (7-6) last Wednesday in the semifinals, which left the Ladycats empty handed. Meanwhile, Trimble defeated Walton-Verona (5-2) in the finals to claim the title.

    The Eminence softball team took a 12-2 loss at Carroll County last Tuesday night, which dropped the Lady Warriors to 1-9 on the season with just two weeks remaining until the 30th District tournament.

    But the future is continuing to look promising as the freshman team, composed of middle school and freshman players, almost defeated Trimble County Thursday. The younger Lady Warriors were in front  8-6 heading into the final inning before they took a slim 9-8 loss. It showed Eminence what the future could hold.

    The Eminence baseball team’s 7-4 win over Evangel Christian on April 23 sparked a three-game winning streak for the Warriors, though the Evangel victory remains the only legit win so far this season.

    Following the Evangel contest, Eminence earned forfeit victories over Louisville Collegiate the following day and Bethlehem High School a few days later. Statistically, it moved the Warriors ahead of last year’s 2-20 record.

    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.
