  • 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.

  • Eminence athletes have best...

    The Eminence Warriors had the most athletes they have had at a track meet in a long time and each of them set personal-best marks last Tuesday night at the Carroll County All-Comers.

    Shelby Armstrong was fourth in the long jump and Cody Gilbert was fourth in the shot put to lead Eminence in the seven-team meet. With Eminence getting a late start to the season and Casey Stamenkovic not being named the new head coach until just before the school’s spring break, athletes are still joining the squad.

  • Collins beats Eminence, 23-21,...

    Playing at Martha Layne Collins in the first meeting between the two schools, newly-formed Collins wasted little time in putting away the visiting Eminence Warriors last Thursday night, easily winning 23-1.

  • Cats beat W-Verona by one run,...

    In Henry County’s only baseball game last week, the Wildcats beat Walton-Verona, 4-3, on Thursday night.

    The Wildcats evened up their overall record to 6-6 entering this week and played Owen County on Monday night. Weather permitting, they play at Shelby County this Wednesday at 7:15 p.m. and host Christian Academy-Louisville on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.

  • Eric Phillips breaks school...

    Most of the athletes at the Harry Greschel Invitational were slowed by the windy and cold conditions all day Saturday, but not Eric Phillips.

    The Henry County senior had a career meet with a school record in the 1,600-meter run, followed by an impressive win in the 3,200-run and an anchor on Henry’s seventh-place 1,600-meter relay team at Christian Academy-Louisville. It was his second school record, going along with his 5,000-meter cross-country record he set in the fall, and gave him his first win at an invitational-sized meet.
