  • Archery barely misses state

    Competing against the largest region in the Kentucky, the Eminence archery club finished fourth out of 29 teams at the Sixth Region tournament over the weekend, missing an automatic qualifying team spot into the state tournament by just one place.

  • EHS basketball moves to 31st

    The Warrior-Wildcat rivalry just got more heated.

    In what was the only change to the 8th Region for the 2011-12 basketball season, and one of only three changes in the whole state, Eminence has made the jump from the 30th to the 31st District.

    When Shelby County split into two high schools this year, the 30th District had five teams: Shelby, newly-formed Martha Layne Collins, Spencer County, Anderson County and Spencer. Meanwhile, the 31st District had four teams: Henry County, Gallatin County, Owen County and Carroll County.

  • Semifinals set for Monday night...

    The Henry County Wildcats continued their postseason run on Wednesday night, dominating Collins for much of the game in a 52-49 win to advance to the semifinals of the 8th Region tournament.

    The Wildcats won their first district championship since 1971 one week earlier, and then started regional play with a win in the first-ever meeting against newly-formed Collins. The visiting Titans ended their inaugural season with an 18-12 record and an early exit in the postseason, while the Wildcats improved to 17-14 and play Oldham County in the semifinals on Monday.

  • Ladycats end season against Owen

    It wasn’t the ending coach Todd Gilley was looking for, but he said his Henry County girls’ basketball team played well for 28 out of 32 minutes against Owen County in the first round of the 31st District tournament last Tuesday night.
    Those four minutes were just too costly.

  • Henry advances to district...

    With so much riding on the line last Wednesday night — the opportunity to guarantee a spot in the 8th region tournament and to advance to the district finals — it took the Henry County Wildcats a little longer to get rolling. But once they did, it was over quickly.
    Playing in the first round of the 31st District tournament, at Henry County, the host Wildcats only trailed a short time but it took them a while to put away Carroll for good.

  • Henry opens 8th Region against...

    In what will be the first-ever meeting between Henry County and newly-formed Martha Layne Collins, the two schools will open the 8th Region tournament at 6:30 p.m. this Wednesday.
    Henry won the 31st District and enters the regional tournament with a 16-14 overall record, while Collins was runners-up in the 30th District and enters at 18-11. With Shelby County splitting into two high schools this year, keeping Shelby and forming Collins, this will be Henry’s first action against the Titans.

  • It’s been 40 years for Cats

    When the final horn sounded late Saturday night, signaling the end of a thrilling 67-61 win for Henry County, the Wildcats rushed to center court, screamed out, gave high fives, jumped in the air and cheered after what was one of the more memorable wins in a long time. The Cats couldn’t keep it in, not after being silenced for 40 years.

  • WILDCATS ARE DISTRICT CHAMPS!...

    The Henry County boys’ basketball team erased a 40-year drought in a memorable game on Saturday night, but it took an overtime to do it.
    For the first time since 1971, the Wildcats can call themselves district champs, after beating Gallatin County in the finals, 67-61. The two teams were tied at 50 at the end of regulation, and Henry outscored visiting Gallatin 17-11 in the overtime to claim the title — the program’s first in exactly 40 years.

  • Wildcats trying for first...

    Trying for their first district championship in exactly 40 years, the Henry County Wildcats will get the chance to claim that title this week at home.
    The Wildcats, who finished the regular season at 14-14, play Carroll County on Wednesday at 6 p.m., and a win would advance them to the final game against either Owen County or Gallatin County on Saturday at 7 p.m. The last time Henry won district was in 1971.

  • Ladycats over Warriors in...

    The Henry County Ladycats started the regular season with a win over their cross-county rivals, and ended it just the same.
    The Ladycats beat Eminence on Dec. 3 in what was both team’s opener, and beat the Warriors again on Friday night, 68-19. Opening and closing the regular season with dominating wins, the Cats extended their winning streak over Eminence to 13 games, dating back to 2005.
    With the win, Henry improved to 13-12 overall, while Eminence dropped to 2-22. Both teams play in their district tournaments this week.
