  • Eminence Lady Warriors' top priority this season to be competitive with opponents

    Before Carter Martin can build a successful program at Eminence High School, he has to be competitive. Thats his motto, and hes sticking to it.

    Martin inherited a program last year that was coming off a 2-20 season under the guidance of Corey Scriber, and had won just 16 games the previous six seasons. And by the time Martins first season came to a halt with a 70-16 loss to Shelby County in the opening round of post-season action in February, his team had won just once.

  • EHS Warriors might play 11-man and 8-man football

    Sports editor

    Within the next few years, Eminence's football team might get back to what made the program successful during the 1990s - eight-man football. But coach Steve Frommeyer and his Warriors, who won numerous state eight-man titles and a few national crowns, want to continue in the 11-man, district-playoffs format, too.

    Now, they might get the chance to do both.

  • Wildcats playing past Turkey Day for the first time

    The price for Lyndon Johnson's amusing but realistic head painting before Friday's game - around 50 dollars. The price to fix the one-bar-up, one-down goal post following Henry County's 15-7 win over North Oldham - just Tim Rahm's hard work. The price for a hotel room in Paducah this Friday night - around 70 bucks.

    The price of watching the Wildcats storm the field in a history-making victory over the Mustangs - priceless.

    Priceless indeed.

    Sports editor

  • Check the radar - Wildcats will have to play through a Blue Tornado Friday night

    Sports editor

    Henry County's football players will have a long time to think about the state playoffs this Friday night - four and a half hours to be exact.

    That's how long the bus ride is expected to take to reach Paducah, which is plenty of time to get the Wildcats mentally fired up for the Class 3A, third-round showdown against the Paducah Tilghman Blue Tornados. The Wildcats hope to survive the storm.

    Landmark News Service

    Joe Schoenbaechler said he felt like a Louisville Cards fan standing center field inside Commonwealth Stadium on Monday night.

    But UK fans might have shown more mercy.
