  • Lasting Memories from spring...

    Some outstanding individual performances highlighted the spring sports season for me this year.

    At the top of my list is the courage and pain threshold shown by Aly Stanley. Stanley injured the posterior cruciate ligament in her knee while the Lady Cats’ softball team was on their spring break trip to Florida. She sat out a couple of games because of the injury and then resumed playing, although for a time she only pitched.

    Eventually, she went back into the batter’s box, too, but was replaced by a courtesy runner when she reached base.

  • Collins outslugs Lady Cats, 11-7

    The Henry County Lady Cats rallied from a five-run deficit only to see Collins come up with a couple of late home runs to seal a quarterfinal victory in the Eighth Region tournament at Simon Kenton on Memorial Day.

    It was all Collins early as they built a 4-0 lead through the first 3.5 innings.

  • Cats' youth highlight...

    The 2015 spring sports season brought a surprising performance from a very young Henry County baseball team, a powerful display from the Henry County softball team, familiar faces making state in track and two teams at Eminence still trying to build something.

    The Henry County Lady Cats’ softball team won the 31st district championship last week with a 4-0 win over Carroll County in the first round and a 10-0 five-inning win over Owen County in the championship game. It was the Lady Cats first district title since 2010.

    The Henry County Wildcats defeated Owen County 5-0 on May 12 to move into the championship game of the 31st district tournament against host Carroll County. The Wildcats fell to the Panthers 7-2 but qualified for the 8th region tournament as the runner-up.

    Henry County High School track athletes Morgan Miller, Cameron Johnson, Patrick Cravens and Connor Finley traveled to Lexington Friday to compete in the 2015 Kentucky State Track Championship.

    Miller was the only female competitor for Henry County. The senior cleared eight feet on her third attempt but barely brushed the bar off in her three attempts at eight feet, six inches to finish in 12th place.

    Finley finished first in his heat of the 110-meter hurdles and 12th overall with a season-best time of 16.76.

  • Gallatin defeats Warriors

    sports@hclocal.com

    The Eminence Warriors baseball team faced Gallatin County in the first round of the district tournament May 18 and fell to the Wildcats 10-0 in six innings.

    The Warriors were held to one hit in the game and Gallatin County had 14 hits.

    But the statistics were deceptive as Eminence hit several hard balls right at the defense and Gallatin County got the benefit of several bloop hits that found empty space. The Wildcats played almost flawless defense while the Warriors had two errors.

  • EHS girls fall to Carroll

    The Eminence Warriors softball team traveled to Owen County on May 18 to take on the Carroll County Lady Panthers in the 31st District tournament. The Lady Panthers prevailed 7-1.

    Carroll scored a run in the bottom of the first. After the leadoff hitter reached on an error, the second batter put down a successful bunt to put runners on second and third. The number three hitter doubled to drive home the game’s first run.

  • Storm fins home in Henry County

    sports@hclocal.com

    The Kentucky Storm semi-pro football team is entering its third year of existence and has finally found a place to play in Henry County.

    The team has been based in Henry County for the past two years but did not have a football field to play on in the county. The first season, the team played at Daniel Field in Shelbyville and last year they played at Flaget Field in Louisville.

    This year the team will play at the football field in the Henry County Recreation and Services Park in New Castle.
