  • Warriors steal past Panthers


    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Carroll County Panthers Saturday night with a lot riding on the outcome of the game. The Warriors could clinch the number two seed for the district tournament with a win.

    But the team got bad news before the game even started when they found out that starter Justin Mitchell would have to miss the game with a knee injury. With Trevor Payton already sidelined, that meant Eminence would be playing with only 60 percent of their regular starting lineup.

  • Lady Cats down EHS


    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted their county rivals, the Eminence Warriors, Thursday night and came away with a 40-18 win but it wasn’t as easy as the score indicates.

    The Warriors came out hot and the Lady Cats were ice cold in the early going.

    The Warriors’ Kenya Vargas opened the scoring with a 3-pointer with 4:30 left in the opening period. Lyndsay Craigmyle followed with a 12-footer before Megan Payton hit one of two free throws for the Lady Cats with 3:15 left.

  • Wildcats end skid with two wins


    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Warsaw on Jan. 27 to play Gallatin County in a game with huge implications for the seeding of the district tournament. If Henry County won, they would guarantee themselves a spot in the semifinals as either a two or three seed. That meant they could avoid being relegated to playing an extra game to get the finals.

    Unfortunately for the Wildcats, severe foul trouble ruined their plans to take control of the their own destiny as Gallatin County won 64-56.

  • Warriors win round two, 67-64


    The Eminence Warriors traveled the short distance to their in-county rivals Henry County Jan. 20 and evened the season series at one game each by hitting some clutch shots down the stretch to pull out a 67-64 win.

    It was a game of contrasting styles as the Warriors tried to use their superior quickness to drive to the basket and create close range shots while Henry County tried to work the ball inside to take advantage of their superior size.

  • Lady Cats vanquish Lady Vikings


    The Henry County Lady Cats found their shooting eye for the second straight game as they pounded the visiting Valley Lady Vikings 70-36 on Jan. 20. After struggling with scoring for most of the season, the Lady Cats have set season highs in points in two consecutive games.

    “Early in the season, no matter who we played, we had trouble scoring,” Lady Cats coach Todd Gilley said. “Now we have scored in double figures in eight of the last 10 quarters. It’s nice to see that progression.”

  • Who's number 2?

    Before last night’s Henry County-Gallatin County matchup, which finished too late for today’s edition, the boys’ 31st District seeding picture was still very murky. Only Owen County knows their fate going into the district tournament. At 7-0, the Rebels will be the top seed and have a bye into the semifinals.

  • Cats fall to Dragons, Colonels


    After falling to Eminence on Jan. 20 the Henry County Wildcats faced the daunting task of taking on the South Oldham Dragons and the Oldham County Colonels on Friday and Saturday. The Wildcats came out on the short end in both games to fall to 8-12 on the season. Henry County is now mired in a six-game losing streak.
