  • Lady Cats defeat Sayre, Shawe

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Sayre Lady Spartans on Thursday night and came away with a 48-43 victory.

    The Lady Cats built a sizable lead in the second and third periods after falling behind in the first period 9-6.

    “The first quarter was just a feeling out quarter for both teams,” Coach Todd Gilley said. “It wasn’t like either team was playing poorly even though we weren’t scoring, we weren’t playing poorly.”

  • Warriors fall to Model

    The Eminence Warriors would probably just as soon forget their trip to Richmond on Saturday to take on the Richmond Model Patriots. The Warriors were without leading scorer Jalen Dixie, who is serving a two-game suspension for his ejection in the Henry County game, and DeMarcus Bailey who sprained his ankle in practice on Thursday night.

    Add to that what Coach Chris Nethery described as a lack of effort and poor shooting and you have a recipe for a blowout loss, which is what happened to the Warriors as they fell to the Patriots 60-31.

  • EHS Girls Drop Two

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team hosted the Collegiate Amazons on Thursday night and fell 57-22.

    The Warriors got off to a slow start as they struggled with the Amazons’ full court press. Collegiate scored on layups off their press mixed with 3-point shots and free throws to take a 19-1 lead after the first period.

    The game continued on the same path to start the second quarter as Collegiate scored the first seven points to make it 26-1.

  • Warriors down Raider; Dixie...

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Bedford on a wintry Saturday night after having their opening home game with Gallatin County postponed on Friday night due to bad road conditions.

  • Wildcats Roll in Week One

    The Henry County Wildcats celebrated their home opener against the Western Hills Wolverines on Thursday night with a dominating 61-19 victory. The Wildcats were led in scoring by Austin Young with 14 points, but it was the depth of the Wildcats that overwhelmed the Wolverines.

    The game started at a frenetic pace but neither team could find their shooting touch early and after four minutes the score stood at 4-4. But the Cats went on a 13-0 run to finish the opening period and never looked back.

  • Lady Cats split pair to open...

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Lady Wolverines of Western Hills on Thursday night and looked like they were on their way to a second straight victory to open the season when the wheels came off.

    After a slow start that found the Lady Cats trailing 15-10 at the end of the first period, the team played very well for 2.5 quarters before Western Hills put on a furious rally to send the game into overtime. The Lady Wolverines pulled away in the extra period for a 56-51 win.

  • Warriors fall to Paris

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Paris to take on the Paris High School Lady Hounds on in their season opener on Saturday and fell 40-5.

    The Warriors had trouble with the Lady Hounds’ pressure defense and committed numerous turnovers that led to easy baskets.

    The Warriors’ half court defense kept it close early according to Coach Zach Adair.  “Our 3-2 zone defense wasn’t bad. It was 6-0 about halfway through the first period. What killed us were turnovers that were converted into points.”
