  • Bracket challenge indeed

    To say that this year’s NCAA tourney has been a challenge for me is to put it mildly. First of all, I decided to change to a different website for our Henry Hoopla contest this year.

    I made this decision last year after we had several people tell me they had trouble accessing the CBSSports.com site for March Madness.

    The Eminence Warriors softball team traveled to Danville High School to take on the Lady Admirals in their first game of the season Friday.

    After four innings the Lady Admirals led just 3-1, but the Warriors’ defense let them down in the later innings as they fell 9-3.

    Danville scored two runs in the third when they led off with a walk, followed with a single, got a sacrifice fly and singled.

    The Warriors got a run in the top of the fourth when Madison Dockter stole home to make it 2-1.

    The Henry County track team traveled to Louisville Christian Academy to participate in the Harry Greschel Invitational meet Saturday in cold, wet conditions that had some events such as the 110-meter high hurdles cancelled.

    If the first game of the season is any indicator, the 2016 Henry County Lady Cats will be an offensive machine again this year.

    The Lady Cats pounded out 10 hits and scored 12 runs in their first game of the season against the Thomas Nelson Generals at home Friday night.

    The Lady Cats got off to good start as they put out the Generals 1-2-3 in the first inning and then came to the plate and scored two runs to take an early lead.

    The Generals rallied in the third inning to score three runs and take the lead.
