  • Eminence moves on in All ‘A’

    In what Chris Nethery describes as one of the focal points of the entire basketball season, Eminence beat Williamstown, 56-52, last Wednesday night to advance to the semifinals of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament.

    It also gave the Warriors three straight wins — the first time that has happened in five seasons, dating back to February 2006. But moving on in the All “A” Classic, designed for the smallest 125 schools in Kentucky, was most important to Nethery.

  • Schroeder gets hot in 18-point final quarter

    Ben Schroeder got the hot hand last Tuesday night, knocking down four three-pointers and scorching Oldham County for 18 points in a frantic final quarter.

    But visiting Oldham held on to its lead in the closing minutes, beating Schroeder’s Henry County squad 57-50. Shroeder finished the night with 28 points and six three-pointers, and his late-game spurt put the Wildcats in contention against one of the top teams in the 8th Region.

  • Eminence girls drop ‘winnable game’ by 30

    Both teams were playing for their second win this season, but it was Augusta who came away with that second check in the win column with Saturday’s 53-23 victory over visiting Eminence.

    Augusta improved to 2-8; the Eminence Warriors dropped to 1-16. The Warriors’ one win this season was over Evangel Christian on Dec. 7, and since that time they have lost 15 straight. They were scheduled to play Evangel again last Friday but it was canceled because of the snow. It might be made up if a day can be scheduled.

  • Lumberyard to close Jan. 31

    On Jan. 31, Barnett Lumber Company’s retail operation will close. Owners Harold and Mary Bratton have decided to retire, though the construction side of the company will live on, with their son Craig Bratton at the helm.
