  • Jenkins makes all region team,...

    The 8th Region Basketball Coaches Association released it’s all-region team last week and there was at least one surprise on that team. Or I should say not on that team.

    While Eminence High School’s Kemryn Jenkins deservedly made the team, Henry County’s Zach Hinkel did not.

    Jenkins was the region’s leading scorer at 27.4 points per game in the regular season. He shot 63.5 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from behind the 3-point arc. Those are staggering numbers for any player at any level and against any competition.

    “The guys came out with a wonderful attitude and good body language before the game,” EHS Assistant Coach Ray Valentine said. “I could tell they were ready to play, but came out slow and maybe rushed a couple of shots.”

    Tyler Gray scored inside for the Wildcats’ first basket with 6:01 left in the opening period before Shelby County hit two free throws to restore their five-point lead.

    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Northern Kentucky Saturday to take on the Villa Madonna Blue Lightning and came away with a 47-27 victory.

    The Lady Cats jumped on Villa Madonna early and led 12-4 going into the second period.

    “We opened up in our press defense and were able to create a lot of turnovers,” HCHS Coach Jim Hook said. “We did a good job of getting to the rim and drawing fouls too.”

    The Lady Cats kept the pressure up in the second period and led 26-12 at halftime.

    The Eminence Warriors played their last home game of the season Saturday night. With celebrations such as senior night and homecoming packing the schedule, they may have overlooked the on-court action a little.

    The Warriors led 12-10 after one period as Kemryn Jenkins scored nine points and Isiah Dixie hit a 3-pointer.

    After Josh Dotson hit one of two free throws to start the second period, Lloyd reeled off nine straight points to lead 19-13.

    The game started slowly with neither team scoring until Carroll hit two free throws with 5:35 left in the opening period.

    Kenya Vargas answered with a 3-pointer on the Warriors’ next possession to make it 3-2 with 5:09 left.
