  • Cheerleaders compete at state...
  • Lady Cats' season comes to...

    The Henry County Lady Cats were facing long odds when they met up with the Lady Wildcats of Gallatin County in the 31st district tournament semifinals Friday.

    Gallatin County came in as one of the winningest teams in the 8th Region. The Lady Cats came in without leading scorer Cheyenne Clark and with two one-sided losses to Gallatin on the season.

    But the Lady Cats came in with the hope for a David and Goliath-like upset.

  • Warriors stand tall despite size

     

     

    Eminence High School was the third smallest public school participating in regional tournaments around the state this week.

    Only Augusta (105 students) and Fulton City (108) beat Eminence’s 150 for the title of smallest school still taking on the big boys of high school basketball.

  • Rebels stop Warriors

    The Eminence Warriors found themselves putting on another rally against the Owen County Rebels Saturday night.

    But the rally fell short, as the Rebels took the district tournament crown, winning 58-50.

    The Warriors were behind by as much as 13 points early in the fourth quarter, but cut the margin to 5 points with 1:28 left in the game.

    With 53.3 seconds to go, Owen county missed two free throws that would have extended the lead back to 7 points. The Warriors rebounded the miss with a chance to cut even further into the lead.

  • Dixie floater lifts Warriors...

    With just a few seconds to go in the Warriors’ game against Gallatin County, Jalen Dixie drove left from the top of the key.

    With Gallatin defenders converging on him, he put up an off-balance floater that kissed off the glass and into the net, giving Eminence a tenuous 52-51 lead — with 7 seconds left in the game.

    Gallatin couldn’t capitalize on their next play — an open 3-pointer from the baseline — and time expired. For the first time since 1999, the Eminence Warriors were heading to the 8th Region tournament.
