  • Ladycats over Warriors in regular season finale

    The Henry County Ladycats started the regular season with a win over their cross-county rivals, and ended it just the same.
    The Ladycats beat Eminence on Dec. 3 in what was both team’s opener, and beat the Warriors again on Friday night, 68-19. Opening and closing the regular season with dominating wins, the Cats extended their winning streak over Eminence to 13 games, dating back to 2005.
    With the win, Henry improved to 13-12 overall, while Eminence dropped to 2-22. Both teams play in their district tournaments this week.

    Ending their seasons within a two-hour span on Monday night, both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams at Eminence High School wrapped up their 2010-2011 campaigns with losses in the first round of the 30th District tournament.
    What’s next for the two squads? Their coaches think positive things. And it’s hard to argue with what all is coming back.

  • Anderson eliminates Eminence boys

    Eminence’s best boys’ basketball season in five years came to a halt Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament as Anderson County forced the Warriors into 22 turnovers and knocked down plenty of long-range shots in a 69-45 win.
    It advanced Anderson to the semifinals of the district tournament, hosted by Spencer County High School, and ended Eminence’s season with a 10-18 record — its best since going 14-13 in 2006.

  • Tournament time arrives

    In a season that flew by way too quick, the end has arrived.

    High school basketball teams across Kentucky are wrapping up their regular seasons this week and the postseason is about to start all across the state.

  • 10th straight win over in-county rival for Cats

    In the final county basketball showdown this season between the two high schools in Henry County, the visiting Wildcats scored the game’s first 17 points and easily won 84-57 on Saturday night.

    Playing at Warrior Gymnasium, the Wildcats outscored Eminence 15-0 in the opening quarter and stretched that lead to 27 points by the end of the night. Henry also beat Eminence earlier in the season, 52-36, in a much-tighter game when Henry did not pull away until the final quarter. This time around, there was no doubt.
