    Officer Phillip Parham of the Eminence Police Department was first on the scene and confirmed to dispatch that smoke was coming from the building.

  • Lady Cats overcome slow start to dominate Williamstown 43-28

    Sitting on a bus for more than an hour didn’t seem to help the Henry County Lady Cats get off to a great start at Williamstown on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

    After six minutes, the Lady Cats were down 9-5, giving up easy baskets. Head Coach Todd Gilley didn’t like the slow start and wasn’t buying a long bus ride as an excuse. So he called a timeout.

    After the timeout, the Lady Cats turned up the heat and went on an 18-2 run, paving the way for a 43-28 win.

  • Dragons scorch Wildcats with hot shooting

    From the beginning, one thing was clear: the Dragons were on fire.

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the South Oldham Dragons Thursday night, and found that their opponents had the hot hand for shooting, as they fell 80-54 in a game of streaks.
    South Oldham opened the game in a full court press and jumped out to a 13-0 lead, taking advantage of four turnovers on Henry County’s first five possessions.

  • Lady Cats down Warriors 68-18

    With a suffocating defense, the Henry County Lady Cats swept their 2011/2012 series with the Eminence Warriors, 68-18 on Thursday night.

    That defense helped the Lady Cats jump out to an early lead, and they never looked back.
    Henry County opened in a full court press, forcing several turnovers that were converted into easy buckets. The Lady Cats were up 14-0 lead after five minutes.

    Sherry Brees got the Warriors’ opening basket with 2:45 left in the quarter, and the period ended with Henry leading 17-3.

  • Warriors fight for pride, defeat Trimble

    For 9.5 minutes their pride was in question: Were the Eminence Warriors at Trimble County to play and represent their school, or were they not?

    After a dismal first quarter where the Warriors were down 19-7, they came back, and cut their deficit to 10 points by halftime, going into the locker room down 20-31 against a team that narrowly beat them to open the season.

  • Evangel gives Warriors a pop quiz

    Basketball, like most sports, is a series of tests.

    Some you ace, some you don’t. Most you have ample time to study for.

    But Friday night, against Evangel Christian, the Eminence Warriors took a pop quiz against a completley different class... and passed with a 55-50 win.

    In what co-head coach Bill Covington described as “a very interesting game,” the Lady Eagles put three new starters on the court, including a 6’3” post player.

  • Public record for the week of Jan. 25

    • Wesley Beverly Jr., 30, Port Royal, and Tracy Lynn Beverly, 27, Eminence.
