  • Henry bounces back from S. Oldham loss to beat Shelby

    A one-win, one-loss week might make some coaches grit their teeth. Not Shannon Snider.

    The Henry County Girl’s Soccer team head coach found the silver lining in the team’s 0-10 loss to South Oldham on Aug. 29.

    “We played really, really hard the whole game, which, a few years ago, wasn’t necessarily happening with that type of team,” he said. “We put out a good effort the whole 80 minutes.”

  • Henry falls to Woodford, now 0-3

    It happened almost in slow motion.

    Moments after Woodford County ran in its first touchdown, freshman Mason Fish was in the backfield, waiting to receive the ensuing kickoff.

    Fish churned toward the Henry County 35-yard line, on what appeared to be a solid run. Then, with a Yellowjacket wrapped around his waist, it happened... the ball popped out, stripped by the enemy. This, after a week of practices that no doubt focused on protecting the football at all costs.

  • Ladycats fight for win against Williamstown

    After the first game of their match against Williamstown, it would have been easy for the Henry County High School volleyball team to give up.

    They fell hard in the first game of the match, 13-25. But volleyball matches are fought in a best of three format, and the Ladycats saved their best for the second and third games.

    Henry County jumped out to an early, and commanding, 9-2 lead in the second game, and they never looked back.

  • A new color for the Warriors: Teal

    After a good week leading into the last games of August, the Eminence High School Volleyball team had trouble finding its rhythm last week.

    The Warriors fell 0-2 to Trimble County; 0-3 to Christian Academy of Indiana, 0-2 to Collins and 0-2 again to Trimble in the All A Classic to round out the week on Saturday.

    It was a tough pill to swallow.

    “It is hard, and it gets them down,” head coach Stephanie Barrows said. “It gets them back down into that losing mentality.”

  • 9/11/01 will forever be remembered

    There are only a handful of days in which a whole country collectively remembers what it was doing.  Some have been high points in our history, like V-E and V-J Day at the end of World War II and Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.  And some have been moments we wish had never occurred, like Pearl Harbor, President Kennedy’s assassination, and the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001.

    For those old enough to remember that last date, it seems hard to believe that 10 years have slipped by since that cool and clear morning.
