  • Girls’ golf completes busy week

    In a field of 105 players and 17 teams, two Henry County Lady Cats placed in the top 15 at the Anderson County Invitational golf tournament Saturday.

    Boyle County won the event with Taylor County finishing second. The Lady Cats did not figure in the team scoring because Coach Willie Peyton is limiting the big tournaments to his more experienced players.

  • HCHS Lady Cats win in OT on PKs

    In thrilling fashion, the Henry County Lady Cats soccer team picked up its first win of the season Monday night.

    Tied at 1-all with Carroll County at the end of regulation, the teams went into overtime — as a district seeding game, a draw was out of the question.

    The Cats and Panthers played two five minute overtime periods but still were tied.

    That meant the game would go to penalty kicks and the two teams would get five spot kicks apiece to determine a winner.

  • Warriors repel Rebels; now 4-0

    For the first time since 2009, the Eminence Warriors defeated the Owen County Lady Rebels.

    In that time, the Warriors hadn’t taken a game, let alone a match, from the Lady Rebels.

    But Thursday night, the Warriors made history, and extended their record to 4-0.

    The win came in a decisive fifth game, the team’s second in three days.

  • EHS picks 5 to blast Caverna

    A new defensive formation paid off big in the form of five interceptions as the Eminence Warriors conquered Caverna 22-0 in their season opener.

    Key to the win was a strong performance by the Eminence secondary, which picked off five Caverna passes, part of a 6-2 turnover battle.

    “We used a new defensive formation that we have been working on in the spring and summer and it worked out well for us,” head coach Steve Frommeyer said. “Five different players intercepted passes.”

  • Mustangs run roughshod over Wildcats

    It was the first quarter that hurt.

    As the Henry County Wildcats squared off against the North Oldham Mustangs Saturday night in Goshen, they were down early, and had trouble recovering in what became a 38-7 Mustangs victory.

    North Oldham started off with a 71-yard touchdown run on their first rushing play of the night.

    Later in the first quarter, Henry County gave up a 45-yard punt return to go down 14-0.

  • Lady Cats pick up 1st win

    After a pair of rough losses to Shelby County and Collins, the Henry County Lady Cats bounced back with solid teamwork to get their first win of the season at Gallatin County.

    The Lady Cats were so strong, they took out Gallatin County 3-0 in the best-of-five match, that featured a dominant 25-9 second game.

    Henry County got off to a slow start in the first game by going down 3-0.

  • Is something special brewing at EHS?

    I know it’s early and, as an old coach, I’m leery of getting excited about early season success, but I get the feeling that the Warriors volleyball team just might be a special group this year.

    The team chemistry seems great, their energy level is high and while the focus still comes and goes a little, it is pretty consistent for this early in the season. The players all have a great will to win which is probably the most important ingredient for team success.

    Cornerstone Christian Academy will have a fall instructional league beginning Saturday, Sept. 15. It will run four Saturdays until Oct. 6. Each week will have two hours of instruction followed by a game.
