  • Wildcats beat Panthers in double...


    The Henry County Wildcats and Carroll County Panthers split their regular season contests with both teams winning in the friendly confines of their gymnasiums. So it was only fitting that that the two teams meet on a neutral court in Owen County to decide the season series with a chance to play for a district championship and a berth in the regional tournament at stake. 

    When the game got under way it was intense from the opening tip with the lead seesawing back and forth by the quarter.

  • EHS tops Lady Cats in district...


    The Eminence Warriors took on the Henry County Lady Cats in the first round of the 31st District basketball tournament and came from behind to win and advance to the semifinals.

    The Warriors fell behind early, as they could not make a field goal in the first period.

    The Lady Cats’ Savannah Medley scored the first basket of the game on an inside move before Ella White scored on a 12-footer to make it 4-0. White struck again with a move along the baseline to make it 6-0 before Katherine Buckler hit a free throw.

  • Warriors fall to Rebels in...


    The Eminence Warriors squared off against the Owen County Rebels Feb. 19 in the first round of the 31st District tournament and fell to the host school, 78-70. The Warriors, who had defeated the Rebels twice during the regular season, fell behind by double digits early in the game but dug their way out of the hole to take the lead briefly in the second half.

    The Warriors played most of the game without the services of starter Josh Dotson who left the game in the opening minutes because of a back injury.

  • Wyatt Finnell signs with Thomas...


    Henry County High School student-athlete Wyatt Finnell signed a letter of intent to play for the Thomas More Saints’ football team next season.

    Finnell, a wideout on the Wildcats’ football team this season, signed in front of family and friends in the HCHS library Feb. 9.

    Finnell said signing with the Saints was an easy decision.

  • Warriors wallop Wolverines, 74-63


    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Walden Wolverines in their final home game of the season and celebrated senior night with an 11-point victory.

    Both teams got off to a slow start after senior night festivities but Trey Gregory’s put back got the Warriors ahead with 5:52 left in the first period.

    After Walden tied it, Josh Dotson scored on a layup to give the Warriors the lead for good.

    The Warriors finished the opening period leading 10-6 before opening up the offense in the second period.

  • EHS girls defeat Villa Madonna,...


    The Eminence Warriors girls basketball team travelled to northern Kentucky Friday night to take on the Villa Madonna Blue Lightning and came away with a win that was more lopsided than the score indicates.

    Eminence jumped out to a 26-9 lead after one period of play as senior Tavi West exploded for 14 points in the opening quarter. West hit three 3-pointers in the opening frame.

  • Lady Cats down Trimble


    The Henry County Lady Cats took on the host Trimble County Lady Raiders Feb. 13 and came away with a seven-point victory in a low-scoring affair.

    Henry County led by three points at 9-6 after the first period. Their defense was even stingier in the second period as they outscored the Lady Raiders 8-2 to lead 17-10 at halftime.

    The Lady Raiders improved in the third period and outscored Henry County 12-6 to pull within one point going into the final period of play.

  • Wildcats lose to Trimble,...


    The Henry County Wildcats travelled to Bedford Feb. 13 to take on the Trimble County Raiders for the third time this season. The Wildcats had won the previous two meetings between the teams but the third time was the charm for the Raiders as they defended their home court with a 51-44 victory.
