  • Black History: Odd Fellows older than derby

    By Brad Bowman

    The Odd Fellows Lodge, formally Washington Lodge #1513, in New Castle stands not just as a part of Henry County’s Black History, but as a pillar of values for its members.

    The lodge on 32 South Main Street in New Castle will celebrate its 142nd anniversary in August. The organization began in 1872, three years older than the Kentucky Derby, and the fraternity bought the present New Castle building in 1886. The Odd Fellows also own and operates a nonprofit cemetery in New Castle.

  • Warriors' season ends against Owen

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team played Owen County in the opening game of the 31st District Tournament on Monday night in Carrollton and came out on the losing end of a 57-6 score.

  • Warriors defeat Panthers, 71-65

    The 2013-14 basketball season has been a tough one for the Eminence Warriors boys’ basketball team but in the last week the team has come together to play their best basketball of the season.

     The Warriors got a six-point victory over the host Carroll County Panthers in the first round of the 31st District Tournament on Monday night for their fourth consecutive win.

    The winning streak started with a win over Carroll County seven days before this victory but the two games couldn’t have been more different.

  • Wildcats finish season strong

    The Henry County Wildcats jumped on the host Trimble County Raiders early on Feb. 18 and then cruised to a 67-57 win.

    The Wildcats outscored the Raiders 21-8 in the first period before Trimble’s Michael Dunaway put on an offensive show to keep his team close.

    “We got up on them pretty good early,” Coach Enoch Welch said. “We executed well on offense and our defensive schemes were working.”

    The Raiders got their offense going by hitting four 3-pointers in the second period to win the quarter 20-18.

  • Lady Cats edged by Spencer 48-47

    The Henry County Lady Cats’ senior night looked like it was going to be a great one but the Spencer County Lady Bears had other ideas. The two teams squared off in New Castle on Feb. 19 in a game that had to be rescheduled because of winter weather.

    The Lady Cats scored the first ten points of the game and led 15-3 with 3:10 left in the opening period. Ashton Pennington had nine of the first 10 points on three 3-pointers in the first 2:10 of the game.

    “I loved our intensity to start the game,” Coach Todd Gilley said.

  • Warriors win three

    The Eminence Warriors hosted Carroll County on Feb. 17, exactly one week after being pummeled by the Panthers, 72-43, and came away with a hard-fought 51-45 victory.

    The Warriors used disciplined offense and tenacious half court defense to get out to an early lead and then had to weather a comeback from the Panthers.

    In the first period Jalen Dixie opened the scoring just 13 seconds into the game with a 3-pointer. Carroll scored the next four points to take the lead briefly before the Warriors took control.

  • Warriors close with three losses

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Louisville on Feb. 18 to take on Whitefield Academy where a slow start and pressure defense by the Lady Wildcats spelled doom for the young Warrior team. Whitefield came out on top 39-14.
    “We started out okay,” Coach Zach Adair said. “It was only 2-0 after three or four minutes but their 2-2-1 full court press started to cause us problems. We made one mistake and then it turned into two then three or four and the game got away from us.”
