  • Thomas More College gets Byrone...

    Entering his senior season in the summer, Eminence’s Byrone Foree asked his football coaches what his chances were of playing at the next level.

    Larry Montgomery said Foree could not play football in college, that he hadn’t proved himself yet, but that he could prove him wrong. Mark Meadows went a different route, saying it was up to Foree if Foree could play in college, that it mattered what he had in his heart.

  • Coach Hunsaker says Cats are...

    Austin Hunsaker said his Henry County Wildcats have recently lost focus on the baseball field, resulting in two losses in their only games last week.

    Mental mistakes, Hunsaker said, have been an issue lately. After winning four of five games, the Wildcats lost to Owen County last Monday night, 9-8, then to Christian Academy-Louisville on Thursday, 9-2. They entered this week at 6-8 overall record.

    A majority of the games during the last two-week stretch have been canceled or delayed due to the weather, and since that time the Wildcats have back pedaled.

  • First win of season for EHS...

    Brandon Mitchell pitched his best game this season, his teammates backed him with no errors on the night and Bradley Foree drove in Eminence’s only two runs as the Warriors beat visiting Berea last Tuesday for their first win of the season.

    The Warriors lost their first six games to open the year, but were able to put it all together against a Berea squad that entered the game at 7-2.

  • Important games due up for...

    With important games due up for the Henry County softball team, coach Matt Wright said his squad is starting to play well at the right time.

    What is at stake for the Ladycats: another North Central Kentucky Conference championship, a sixth straight 31st District title and a first-ever 8th Region crown.

  • Two more wins for Eminence

    Continuing its best-ever start, the Eminence softball team bounced back from its first two losses of the season with two big wins last week.

    The Warriors opened the season winning their first four games, then lost two before beating both Sayre and Kentucky Country Day last Tuesday and Thursday nights for the 6-2 start.

  • Rain: go away!

    The site on Henry County’s track Saturday morning was not what it was planned to be when the April 23 date was set for the Wildcat Relays months ago.

    I had it highlighted on my calendar, and was looking forward to what was going to be the largest track meet in the county.

    There were supposed to be team tents set up around the track. There were supposed to be athletes running laps, jumping, throwing, passing batons. The stadium was supposed to be full of yelling spectators. The starters’ gun was going to be emptied of all its blank bullets.

  • Luke takes his ‘cool hand’ to...

    One of the most prolific passers to ever come out of Henry County has decided to play football at Thomas More College, making his choice to play for the Saints official on Friday in front of family, coaches and friends.

  • Doll makes his decision, headed...

    After debating if he wanted to play football at the next level, Henry County High School senior Dylan Doll decided that the answer was yes.

    Doll said he had always wanted to play football in college, but after his junior season had doubts if he wanted to play a sport or just focus on school. He finally made that decision just a few months ago and it was made official with a signing last Tuesday inside the high school’s Media Room.

    When Doll puts on the pads again for a football game, it will be for Campbellsville University, becoming a Tiger.

  • Ladycats hold off Owen, 5-4, in...

    The Henry County softball team jumped out to a comfortable 5-0 lead last Thursday night at Owen County, then held off the Rebels in the final inning for the one-run win, 5-4.

  • EHS softball drops first two

    The Eminence softball team opened its season at 4-0 for possibly its best start in program history, but dropped two games last week for a 4-2 record.

    The Warriors jump started the season with wins over Sayre, Kentucky Country Day, Williamstown and Frankfort, then took a 6-1 loss to Shelby County last Wednesday night and a 4-0 loss to Williamstown on Friday. The last loss was part of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament.
