  • Tough week for Ladycats; lose to Shelby, Gallatin

    It was a rough week for the Ladycats of Henry County. After falling 35-44 at home against Shelby County, Henry County fell hard at Gallatin, 27-76.

    Missed free throws were critical in the Shelby game, Henry County head coach Todd Gilley said.

    “We were 11 of 30 from the free throw line,” he said. “We got beat by 9. It didn’t take long to figure out that if we’d hit our free throws, we would’ve won.”

    Gilley said missing that many free throws is mental, and a symptom of frustration on the part of the players.

  • Cats hang on for narrow victory at EHS

    From the tip-off to the final free throw, last week’s rivalry game between Eminence and Henry County was intense.

    “I knew there was a rivalry and knew it would be intense. It lived up to the billing.

  • Warriors pick up first win, drop Lady Aces

    The Eminence Warriors picked up their first win with a 49-30 performance against Frederick Fraize Friday night.

    “I thought we gave a really good effort,” head coach Bill Covington said.

    But 16 missed foul shots in the first half alone, meant the Warriors didn’t win by as wide a margin as they could have.

    “We should’ve won by a much larger margin,” he said. “That’s something we’re going to concentrate on this week.”
