  • HCIT is back

    After a long layoff, Jason Holland brought back the Henry County Invitational Tournament when he was in charge of the boys’ basketball program a few years back. Now, Derek Springate is doing the same.

    It’s back!

    For the first time in three seasons, the Wildcats will host the HCIT, which used to be one of the top winter-break tournaments in the state, played in Roy L. Winchester Gym.

  • Cats start districts perfect

    Henry County got off to a perfect start in 31st District play last week, beating Carroll County (67-46) on the road Tuesday and Owen County (56-42) at home on Friday.

    The two wins gave the boys’ basketball team a 2-0 start against district teams and propelled them to the top of the district standings against Owen (4-2 overall, 2-1 district), Gallatin County (2-3, 1-1) and Carroll (2-3, 0-3). Henry is 2-2 after opening the season with losses to Western Hills and Walton-Verona and the two district wins.

  • Tournaments set during break for HCHS and EHS

    If the snow stays away long enough to play, the local high school basketball teams will be participating in area tournaments during winter break from school.

    The snow that has blanketed Henry County the last week left seven games in the county either delayed or canceled, and is threatening to disrupt even more entering the new year. Between Henry County High School and Eminence High School, there are six tournaments scheduled for the break. Additional snow is expected this weekend.

  • Warriors stray from game plan in 71-37 Collins loss

    The Warriors were trailing Martha Layne Collins by just two points midway through the second quarter last Tuesday night when they strayed away from their game plan, allowing the newly-formed high school to pull away to an easy 71-37 win.

  • Without Samantha Congleton, Lady Warriors drop two more ballgames

    Without the strong inside presence of Samantha Congleton in the Western Girls Holiday Classic on Saturday, the Eminence girls’ basketball team dropped two games within a few hours of each other.
    Congleton had to miss the day with a strained knee, but coach Carter Martin said he expects her back this week. Her absence on Saturday was felt as the Lady Warriors lost two games in a combined score of 102-55.

  • Ladycats lose first district games

    Dropping their first two 31st District outings of the season, the Henry County Ladcyats evened up their basketball record at 2-2 and lost a pair of important early-season games.

    Jessica Booher combined for 28 points in the two-game stretch to lead the Ladycats, but the Cats lost to Carroll County (43-35) last Tuesday night on the road and to Owen County (64-46) on Friday at home. They play Gallatin County later in the season, and all three teams a second time to seed the district tournament, which Henry hosts in late February.

  • Blake Hoagland: A dream come true!

    Going from rural New Castle to downtown Louisville landed him a state title, but he hasn’t forgotten where it all started.
    When Central won the Class 3-A state football championship on Dec. 4 — the third title for Central in the last four years — a former Henry County High School student played a key role in the dominating 46-7 win over Belfry.

  • snow days come early for EIS, HCPS

    First-year EIS school superintendent Buddy Berry said nobody he has talked to remembers taking a snow day this early in the school year.

    “This year we’ve had three days off before Christmas,” he said.

    One of those days were weather-related with up to 1/2 inch of ice making roads treacherous.

    The other was due to two water main breaks at the school.

    Berry, however, isn’t worried about making instructional time up. “It’s not hard to get the days made up,” he said.
