  • Warriors continue track season...

    Sports editor

    The Eminence track team had just five athletes compete at the Harry Greschel Christian Academy Invitational over the weekend, but still managed to bring back to Eminence some eye-popping results.

    The 400-meter relay team of Ed Berry, TJ Cooper, Trey Lindsey and Tihon Durrett placed third; Berry won the long jump, placed second in the high jump and fifth in the triple jump; Cooper finished fifth in the high jump; and Jon Reed placed 16th in the long jump. In just their second track meet of the season, it was a good day for the Warriors.

  • Wildcats continue winning streak

    Sports editor

    The Henry County Wildcats, who haven’t lost a game since April 7, stretched their winning streak to eight straight heading into this week’s baseball action.

    Led by solid pitching, fielding and batting in four games last week, the Cats defeated Carroll County (5-4), Walton-Verona (10-0), Warren Central (3-2) and Bullitt East (9-3) to improve to an impressive 10-2 record. The last two games were part of the PTA Wooden Bat Classic, held in Elizabethtown over the weekend.

  • Shorthanded Cats led by Adams in...

    The Henry County Cats were missing some key ingredients Saturday when they participated in the Harry Greschel Christian Academy Invitational, but brought back to New Castle some impressive performances despite the low numbers.

    The track team was missing Brittany Crawford due to a strained hamstring and a number of other athletes due to grades, which made the results a bit skewed for the Cats.

    “I was proud of the ones that showed up and ran,” Henry coach Ricky Drawbaugh said afterwards. “They are continuing to improve every week.”

  • EHS Warriors improving, but...

    The Eminence baseball team is still searching for its first win of the season, but things are definitely looking brighter for the squad that took a state-record 58-0 beating from Anderson County two weeks ago.

    With a majority of its players back in the rotation - which added to the Anderson debacle - plus the addition of newcomers Nelson Hedges and Ed Berry, Eminence is showing signs of a team that could turn the tables on its 0-9 start.

  • Student comes before athlete

    When Henry County’s track team loaded the bus to head off to the Harry Greschel Christian Academy Invitational this past Saturday, nine athletes were missing due to poor grades. It definitely had an affect on the team’s performance that day, leaving them empty handed in most of the events and without enough athletes to field some relays.

    The Henry County Ladycats didn't get as many wins as they would have liked at the Sports Warehouse Classic - the premier tournament in the state, held at Owensboro Catholic High School over the weekend - but it wasn't a complete disappointed either.

    The Cats earned one win against "very tough" opponents, put themselves in position to win a few more games and, more importantly, improved their swing while facing some overpowering pitchers.

  • Trying times for Warriors

    The Eminence Warriors made history on the baseball diamond last Monday night - though it's not the kind they hope will land them a spot on the ESPN highlight show.

    In case you haven't heard, the Warriors took a lopsided 58-0 loss to Anderson County, which broke the Kentucky high school record for most runs scored in a single game, passing Powell County's 44 from 1986. And the 33 runs Eminence allowed during the first inning put Anderson at No. 2 in that category, trailing Middlesboro's 36 from 1984.

  • Henry girls finish second, boys...

    Jamie Graham won the high jump and triple jump, Brittany Crawford won the 100-meter hurdles, Jalie Adams won the shot put, and the host Henry County girls' team came away with a surprising second-place finish at the Wildcat Relays Saturday.

    On a chilly and windy day, Henry left with four first-place finishes and seven second-place finishes, which was good enough to earn the girls' team 104 points and runners-up honors, and the boys' team 36 points and seventh overall.

    After opening the season with three losses, the Eminence softball team got on the winning side of things in a big way Saturday afternoon, easily rolling past Caverna High School, 19-0.

  • Wildcats riding a four-game...

    Sports editor

    In their first full week of baseball games due to the inconsistent and unpredictable weather, the Henry County Wildcats are riding a four-game winning streak.

    During the Male Spring Break Tournament, the Cats lost to Male (5-1) last Monday, rolled past Muhlenberg South (9-1) Tuesday and defeated Seneca (5-1) Wednesday. They followed that with two wins in a double-header with Villa Madonna Saturday (5-2 and 16-0), which left them at 6-2 overall and on an upswing heading into this week.
