  • 'Jackets sting Cats


    With 61 players on their roster, the Woodford County Yellowjackets are deep.
    That depth, plus size and speed, hurt the already injured Cats as they travelled to Versailles Friday and came up short against the 5A Yellowjackets, 44-6.
    The 5A Yellowjackets proved to be too deep and athletic for the Wildcats.

  • Still smarting from Calss A loss, Warriors fall to Carroll 3-1

    The Eminence Warriors volleyball team appeared to be a step slow, possibly still smarting from their Class A tournament defeat to Walton, as they hosted the Carroll County Lady Panthers on Aug. 27.

    The Warriors lost the match 3-1 and fell to 2-1 in district play.

    The opening game started with a missed serve by the Warriors and they never fully recovered. Although the game was close in the early stages, the Warriors could not put a run together.

  • Short on depth, Lady Cats drop two games

    Short on depth already, the Henry County Lady Cats soccer team had even less to play with as nagging injuries shortened the roster even further for the young team.

    “We are getting better as a team but we’re young and the inexperience is showing,” Coach Brandie Stivers said. “The injuries are hurting us the most however.”

    Without the services of midfielder Izzy Miller, the Lady Cats fell 3-0 to Carroll County.

  • Boys golf lose to Shelby

    Young players led another Henry County golf team last week. This time, on Aug. 27, fifth-grader Alex Hadden led the team with a 48, as the boys’ golf team fell to Shelby County 186-217.

    Other performances on the team include 8th grader Dillon Allen and fifth grader Isaac Klempner, who each shot 51; freshman Connor Lyons shot 67. Also competing but not figuring in the scoring were Shayne Strong who shot 70 and Tyler Tingle who shot 72.

  • Lady Cats rely on youngsters, beat Oldham

    An already young Lady Cats golf team was even younger last week as its oldest player sat out a home match against Oldham County.

    Coach Willie Peyton decided to have MacKenzie Peyton, his best and oldest player, sit out the home match against Oldham County in order to allow her to focus on a big tournament coming up this weekend. He also wanted to be able to give another of his young players the opportunity to score in a varsity match.

    The move paid off as the Lady Cats pulled out a 219-222 victory over Oldham County at the Henry County Country Club.

    Troopers found  Bibelhauser, 61, of Smithfield dead from a gunshot wound to the head.

  • Portrait artist to do Coach D mural

    Clint Hedges loves doing portrait art.

    Unlike a landscape piece where a tree can be a few inches off from its original spot, a portrait of a grandmother’s face must be exact or Hedges feels like he hasn’t given his client their money’s worth.

    The eyes and nose must be spaced exactly to her true features or the whole picture is off. Hedges loves that kind of challenge.
