    On a muddy course and in less-than-ideal conditions, the Eminence cross-country team continued its season over the weekend with the South Oldham Dragon Invitational on Saturday.

    Eminence coach Scott McClamroch said his runners had to overcome the mud on the course and cool temperatures.

  • ‘Pink Out’ on Friday

    When the Henry County High School football players sprint out to take the field in their regular-season finale this Friday night, they will be trying to bring more attention to cancer.
