  • Slow start heats up at Bracken

    In its last three football games, Eminence High School has faced a fair amount of adversity.
    Primarily, that adversity has been the broken left hand of quarterback Bradley Foree. But the Warriors battled through that difficulty and built up a 6-0 record heading into last week’s game at Bracken County.

    A district contest, the Warriors knew their game against the Polar Bears would be tough. Bracken County was sitting on a 5-1 record, having lost only their season opener.

  • Peyton makes the cut; finishes...

    MacKenzie Peyton got her first putter when she was just a year old.

    Now a teenager, Peyton has completed her second run in the state high school golf tournament in Bowling Green.

    On Saturday, the Henry County High School freshman finished the tournament with a 24-over-par 168, which put her in 28th place in the state.

  • Boys golf ends season on sour...

    Somewhere, midway through the season, the Henry County boys golf team lost its punch.

    The lack of punch showed, Henry County head coach Barney Sutley said.

    In the NCKC tournament, the boys finished fifth out of seven teams. The team’s best performance came from Nathan Parish, who shot an 84, about 12 strokes better than his average for the season.

    Senior Matt Ricketts also shot an 84, and the team’s other seniors each shot a 94. “So, definitely not as good as we could’ve done,” Sutley said.

  • HCHS boys soccer team ends tough...

    A 1-10 record is rarely taken well in any sport.

    But that’s where the Henry County Boys’ soccer team found itself at the end of the 2011 season.

    But instead of hanging their heads or bemoaning their lack of success, the team was upbeat.

    “It was a tough year,” head coach Rob Powars said. “I was worried that they were going to get down on themselves. But they tried to keep it pretty light. They knew how it was going to go.”

  • Henry wraps up regular season

    With 15 minutes to go in their game against Owen County, Henry County girls’ soccer coach Shannon Snider put Victoria Paynter and Emily Veigh up front, and told them go have fun.

    They did.

    On senior night, the two combined for a total of six of the team’s seven goals, and fellow senior Katie Setters chipped in a third as the Ladycats defeated Owen County 7-0.

    “They were pretty emotionally pumped up,” Snider said. “It was our best game this season.”

  • Ladycats sweep series

    It was the third game of the rematch. Eminence and Henry County were tied 22-22.

    In a gym that was buzzing from start to finish, the two volleyball teams went head to head for nearly 90 minutes. This was it — the Warriors chance to get revenge after falling to the Ladycats earlier in the season.

    A long set out gave Henry County a point. 23-22.

    A panic play gives the Ladycats another point. 24-22.

  • Peyton, Vaughn head to state

    For the second year in a row, MacKenzie Peyton is headed to the state golf tournament.
    And this year, senior teammate Ally Vaughn is going with her.

    Peyton and Vaughn were in the top seven golfers at last week’s regional tournament. Shelby County’s Jordan Webb, a close friend of Peyton’s, shot the tournament low of 71; Mercy’s Chau Tran shot a 75; Sacred Heart’s Katie Page shot a 76, as did Oldham County’s Meghan Theiss; Peyton shot a 79, as did Sacred Heart’s Mattie Hamilton; and Vaughn shot an 82.

  • Warriors stymie Raiders revenge...

    From their own 35 yard line, Eminence’s Bradley Foree looked to pass. But finding no receivers, he tucked the ball and plugged 20-yards up field, breaking up the attempted tackles of more than one defender.
    “God I hate that kid,” one Trimble County coach muttered in frustration

  • Friends For Michael 5k draws 72...

    The 15th Annual Friends for Michael 5K run/walk was held Saturday at Henry County Middle School. Seventy-two runners and walkers participated in this year’s event.

    Greg Woods, race director, would like to thank everyone who participated in the event and give a special thanks to all those who helped in preparing for the race.
