  • Wildcats fall to Gallatin, 61-53

    When the Henry County Wildcats hosted District 30 rivals Gallatin County on Jan. 28, poor free throw shooting by the host Wildcats was their ultimate downfall. Henry County hit just 10 of 25 free throws for 40 percent while the visiting Wildcats hit 24-32 for 75 percent.

    “We missed 15 free throws and lost by eight points,” Coach Enoch Welch said. That tells the whole story.”

  • BUSY week end with close loss to...

    The Eminence girls’ basketball team had a busy week, playing four games in five days last week. The week started with a 43-8 loss at KCD on Jan. 27 followed by a 60-13 loss at West Jesamine. On Thursday the Warriors hosted cross-county rivals Henry County and fell 50- 15 and ended with a 42-33 loss to Beth Haven on Friday that showed that the Warriors’ offensive game is improving heading into the final weeks of the season.

    The Bearcats got off to a strong start and were ahead 14-4 at the end of the first period.

  • Lady Cats defeat Warriors

    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Warsaw on Jan. 29 to take on the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats and fell 58-37. The Lady Cats trailed by just nine points at the break but a slow start in the third quarter sealed the game for Gallatin County.

    In the first period the Lady Wildcats jumped out to a 13-5 lead but Henry County came back in the second period and played them evenly. The Lady Wildcats were only able to add one point to their lead going into the locker room.

  • Third time not a charm for...

    The Eminence Warriors found themselves in an unusual situation when they hosted the Owen County Rebels on Jan. 29. The game was the third straight in which the Warriors and Rebels had faced off because of a scheduling fluke and bad weather.  The Rebels won a regular season matchup on Jan. 16 by a score of 57-44. They defeated the Warriors 72-71 in the first round of the All A Classic on Jan. 22 and then came back to Eminence after both teams lost games due to weather cancellations to play again a week later.

  • Warriors fall to Rebels in All A

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Owen County Rebels on Jan. 22 in the first round of the All A Classic after losing to the Rebels just six days earlier in a similar scenario.

    Whether you attribute it to a hot start for the Rebels or a slow start for the Warriors, the first period of both games was the downfall for Eminence.

  • Dragons slay Wildcats

    After 11 days without a game due to the frigid, snowy weather, the South Oldham Dragons could not have been blamed if they had come into the Roy L. Winchester Gymnasium in New Castle on Friday night a little cold, but that was not the case. They lit up the Henry County Wildcats with hot shooting and tenacious defense in their 81-54 win.

  • Wishful Thinking

    This ridiculous weather has left me with a lot of extra time on my hands this week. Local teams played only two games this week out of the six that were scheduled. So I have had more than enough time to think and that is always dangerous.

    I am going to share some of these thoughts with you. I know you didn’t ask, but here it is anyway.

  • Wildcats defeat Warriors 65-47

    Round two of the inter-county rivalry was played in Eminence on Jan. 14, and the Henry County Wildcats came out on top against the host Warriors again after defeating them earlier in the year. But this time the outcome was a little better for the Warriors, who lost to the Cats by 25 points in New Castle in early December.

    This version of the rivalry started slowly with neither team being able to find the basket in the first 90 seconds of the game.
