  • Henry can't four-peat as...

    Sports editor

    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.

  • 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.

  • Lady Warriors try to dig out of...

    Sports editor

    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.”
