  • Wildcats whip Warriors, 12-2


    The Henry County Wildcats had a light week in terms of how many games they played. But the two games they did play were very important in determining their postseason fate.

    First they traveled the three miles from HCHS to Eminence to take on their county rivals. Then they traveled to Owenton to take on another district rival. With two wins the Wildcats could take a big step toward the top seed in the district tournament.

    The Wildcats defeated the Warriors 12-2 March 29 before falling to the Rebels 8-0 the following evening.

  • Warriors lose, 3-2, to Burgin


    The Eminence Warriors finished off a busy week with a one-run loss at Burgin Friday night. The Warriors cut down on their errors with only one in the game. But it was a big one, according to Coach Tyler Gross.

    “The key to the game was in the fourth inning when we had two outs and we threw one away on a ground ball,” Gross said. “They scored two runs after that.”

  • HC track competes at North Oldham


    Cameron Johnson led the Henry County Wildcats track team with a win in the triple jump and a fourth-place finish in the long jump at the North Oldham Invitational Friday night. Connor Finley had a good showing in the 110-meter high hurdles as he finished third and the 300 hurdles where he placed sixth.

  • Lady Cats fall to Atherton,...


    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Shelbyville Mar. 29 to take on the Shelby County Lady Rockets and came away with a 10-0 five-inning loss.

    The Lady Cats managed just three hits in the game while the Lady Rockets pounded out 12 base knocks including a double and a triple.

    The Lady Cats committed just two errors in the game but they accounted for three unearned runs.

    Shelby scored a single run in the first, three in the third, four in the fourth and two in the fifth to end the game.

  • EHS nipped by Lady Demons


    The Eminence Warriors softball team traveled to Carroll County March 29 for a district seeding matchup and fell to the Lady Panthers 17-9.

    The Warriors started brightly by jumping on the Lady Panthers for three runs in the first inning but were victims of a bad second inning when Carroll scored 10 runs.

    The game was played fairly evenly the rest of the way but the damage had been done in that tough second inning.

  • Lady Cats show progress


    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Western Hills Lady Wolverines March 22 and fell 13-3.

    The game was close through the first four innings as Western Hills scored two runs in the first inning only to be matched by the Lady Cats when they came to plate in the bottom of the inning.

    Western Hills scored their first two runs with two outs on three Henry County errors and two base hits.

  • Warriors lose opener to Demons


    The Eminence Warriors baseball team opened their season at Williamstown March 21 and played solid baseball in the early going before a late fielding meltdown dashed their hopes for a victory.

    Williamstown scored two runs in the first inning with Cameron Mathis on the mound for the Warriors. Mathis walked three of the first six batters he faced in the inning then settled down and pitched well over the next four innings.

  • Pitchers lead Wildcats to three...


    The Henry County Wildcats shut out the Gallatin County Wildcats 6-0 behind a complete game three-hit pitching performance by Jaydon Berry March 22 in both teams’ first district game of the year.

    The 31st district teams agreed to play only one seeding game against each other, which made this an important early season game according to HCHS Coach Stuart Dill.

  • EHS bats show life despite loss


    The Eminence Warriors softball team played three games last week and showed significant improvement during the final game against Frankfort Thursday evening.

    The Warriors started the week with a 19-9 loss at home to Lloyd Memorial High School on March 21.

    The Warriors fell behind 3-0 in the first inning but came back for seven runs in the bottom of the second to lead by four runs.

    Lloyd broke the game open in the third and fourth innings with six runs in each inning.

  • Elite Eight or MMA?

    I hate to even attempt to analyze the games played this weekend in the NCAA tournament after my dismal performance in our Henry Hoopla contest, but I guess I’m still considered the resident expert so here goes.

    The Elite Eight was characterized by the sudden absence of referees in long stretches of those games. After a season of calling games closer and actually following through on the repeated attempts to move back to the free flowing game that college basketball used to be, the referees resorted to the old style of letting the teams hammer each other.
