  • Local offers new and improved website

  • Eminence Cross Country team prepares for regional championships

    The last time Eminence had a runner at the KHSAA State Cross Country Championships was in 2005 when Richard Sanford placed 43rd, while the last time the Warriors had a girl compete at the state meet was in 1999 when Casey Hargrove placed 52nd.

    Now, after a two-year streak for the boys' team and a seven-year streak on the girls' side, coach Scott McClamroch wants Eminence to be represented against the best in the state once again. But he knows it will take above-average performances to get the job done.
