  • Wildcats finish season strong

    The Henry County Wildcats jumped on the host Trimble County Raiders early on Feb. 18 and then cruised to a 67-57 win.

    The Wildcats outscored the Raiders 21-8 in the first period before Trimble’s Michael Dunaway put on an offensive show to keep his team close.

    “We got up on them pretty good early,” Coach Enoch Welch said. “We executed well on offense and our defensive schemes were working.”

    The Raiders got their offense going by hitting four 3-pointers in the second period to win the quarter 20-18.

  • Lady Cats edged by Spencer 48-47

    The Henry County Lady Cats’ senior night looked like it was going to be a great one but the Spencer County Lady Bears had other ideas. The two teams squared off in New Castle on Feb. 19 in a game that had to be rescheduled because of winter weather.

    The Lady Cats scored the first ten points of the game and led 15-3 with 3:10 left in the opening period. Ashton Pennington had nine of the first 10 points on three 3-pointers in the first 2:10 of the game.

    “I loved our intensity to start the game,” Coach Todd Gilley said.

  • Warriors win three

    The Eminence Warriors hosted Carroll County on Feb. 17, exactly one week after being pummeled by the Panthers, 72-43, and came away with a hard-fought 51-45 victory.

    The Warriors used disciplined offense and tenacious half court defense to get out to an early lead and then had to weather a comeback from the Panthers.

    In the first period Jalen Dixie opened the scoring just 13 seconds into the game with a 3-pointer. Carroll scored the next four points to take the lead briefly before the Warriors took control.

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Louisville on Feb. 18 to take on Whitefield Academy where a slow start and pressure defense by the Lady Wildcats spelled doom for the young Warrior team. Whitefield came out on top 39-14.
    “We started out okay,” Coach Zach Adair said. “It was only 2-0 after three or four minutes but their 2-2-1 full court press started to cause us problems. We made one mistake and then it turned into two then three or four and the game got away from us.”
