  • HCHS Softball's 31st...

    Ending the five years as the top team in the 31st District, the Henry County softball team lost to Gallatin County last Wednesday night to lose its first district tournament game since 2005.

    Playing at Carroll County High School, Henry’s 3-1 loss to Gallatin marked the first time the Ladycats had lost the district title since the state’s realignment, when they were placed from the 30th District to the 31st in 2006. They were 11-0 in the tournament since the switch, and had won the title in 2006-2010.

  • HC advances in 8th Region with...

    The Wildcats did not go ahead for good until the bottom of the sixth inning — when Jake Hartlage’s hit with two outs allowed Lance Williams enough time to cross home plate — and they held on to their 6-5 win in the opening round of the 8th Region tournament on Monday night.

    The Henry County baseball team won the 31st District title the week before and the Grant win gave the squad 20 wins on the season at 20-8, and kept them on a long winning streak that includes 14 straight victories.

  • Wildcats are 31st District...

  • Cats win 11 straight games!

    The wins keep piling up for the Wildcats, and just at the right time.

    The first of the streak came on April 29 in an 8-4 win over Oldham County, and 10 more followed during the next three weeks, leading through the rest of the regular season and into the 31st District tournament. That’s 11 consecutive wins, nearly a month without a loss.

  • Fischer, Phillips headed to...

    Cassey Fischer became the first runner from Henry County to qualify for the state meet in the three longest races on the track, Eric Phillips is making his first trip to state, and both distance specialists will be competing against the best in Class 2A this Thursday at the University of Louisville.

  • District tournament games pushed...

    Stormy weather conditions continue to hamper the 2011 baseball and softball seasons, right up to the end.

    As the postseason started on Monday night, a storm swept through the area, causing local first-round games to be delayed and eventually postponed until at least Tuesday. More storms are expected the rest of this week, leading up to Monday’s 8th Region tournaments. It might be a tricky postseason to get in all needed games.

  • EHS track ends year at region

    In what assistant track coach Steve Frommeyer described as a very promising year,

    Eminence’s track season came to an end at the Region 5 Championships last Tuesday night in Owen County as no Warrior qualified for the Class A state meet, hosted by the University of Louisville this Friday.

    The tracksters got a late start to the season, shortening the training time and total meets, starting after the school’s spring break and ending last Tuesday. Frommeyer said it was a good year.

  • Henry baseball, softball win...

    After the weather delayed and delayed and delayed the North Central Kentucky Conference baseball and softball tournaments, pushing both to the final weekend of the regular season with the district tournaments just days away, both Henry County teams are conference champions.

  • Districts to start

    They have arrived.

    The high school district tournaments for both baseball and softball start Monday night with games all across Kentucky. Here is a breakdown of all four county teams:
