  • Jeffries spends summer with Hoyas

    Derek Jeffries, junior at Henry County High School, played center and power forward for the Basketball Academy of Louisville 16U BA Hoya Elite team.

    The team was made up of players selected from tryouts of more than 45 players. The final team of 12 came from the 1st, 6th, 7th and 8th Regions.

    Derek was busy in April, May and July traveling around the country to compete in elite AAU/travel team tournaments with 75 or more teams in this division from Florida to Michigan and Texas to Canada.

  • Looking for more players

    In an effort to attract more football players to a struggling Henry County Youth Football League, most notably the Eastern Colts, the deadline for signups has been extended to Aug. 19.
    Players report to JAM Day this Saturday for weigh ins and to submit a completed roster — which in the past served as the cutoff point for players to join one of the five teams in the league — but they can continue to signup during the next two weeks.
    Overall, the numbers are alarmingly down from past seasons in the HCYFL, lower than they’ve been in years.

    Hosting a tournament on the opening day of the 2011 golf season Monday, the Henry County Ladycats were third in the team standings and their top golfer MacKenzie Peyton was third individually against a 21-team, 73-player field.
    Playing on the same Henry County Country Club course that will host the regional tournament after the regular season in September, Sacred Heart won the team title with 317 combined points, Owen County was second at 355 and Henry was third at 367. There were 21 teams represented and 14 full teams.

  • MAY 25, 1967: Jim Green sets...

    LEXINGTON, Ky — Those who watched sprinter Jim Green set three state records Saturday in Lexington, in the Class A Track and Field Meet know what the Eminence youth meant when he said:
    “There wasn’t anybody to push me, so I was just running against the clock.”
    Green had the crowd of about 1,500 buzzing at the University of Kentucky’s Sportscenter when he left his opposition far back in the 100, 220 and 440-yard dashes.
    Green provided Eminence with its only scoring punch with his three victories (worth six points each).

  • April 19, 1989: Wildcats walk...

    Usually when the Eminence Warriors and the Henry County Wildcats meet on the diamond, the game features plenty of hitting and action. The first contest between the two rivals had plenty of action but the Wildcats took advantage of eight walks given up by the Warriors to take a narrow 8-7 victory.
