  • Warriors ride energy from HCHS game to beat Brown

    The energy of the Henry County game carried through to the next night for the Eminence boys basketball team.

    On Wednesday, they hosted Brown, and handily defeated the visitors 77-59.

    A pair of games last week may have shown the Eminence girls’ basketball team how much they’ve improved since the start of the season.

    He even referred to the third quarter as the Ladycats’ nemesis. He even joked about not going to the locker room at halftime again.

    Senior Katie Setters helped Henry take a 12-5 lead in the first quarter, picking up half of the team’s points. But in the second, Henry County was outscored 10-7.
