  • Scrimmages promising for local...

     With the Henry County Wildcats two days away from opening the football season and the Eminence Warriors nine days from their first gridiron battle, it looks like a few things can be taken away from last Friday night’s scrimmages.

    But remember that scrimmages don’t always paint an accurate picture of a team. Maybe the teams were trying some new things. Or maybe they had some key players nursing minor injuries that kept them from taking part. Or maybe they had a hard time getting fired up for a game that doesn’t count.

  • Exciting times for soccer,...

     The fall sports season started last week with HCHS boys and girls golf teams playing in several events. This week volleyball starts with the Eminence Warriors playing three matches. HCHS volleyball starts next Monday as do HCHS boys and girls soccer.

    As I put together my master calendar of sporting events, I went through the usual mixed emotions of excitement, anticipation and fear.

  • Trip to the ballpark a learning...

     Editor’s note: This is a cautionary tale of the failure of a father to properly educate his child on the finer points of America’s pastime. There may be some embellishment of the facts in the story.

    A certain sportswriter recently walked into his home to hear these words from his 17-year old daughter:

    “Hey dad, do you want to go to a Louisville Bats game?”

    The sportswriter paused, picked his jaw off the ground, wiped the surprised look off his face and said, “Sure honey, that would be great!”
