  • Henry Co. knocked out by...

    Playing against a middle school that doesn’t even exist, the Henry County Middle School football season came to an end on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Division 2 State Playoffs.

    Henry was perfect at 8-0 during the regular season, and beat Owen County and Western in the first two rounds of the playoffs. But against Lexington Catholic — a team composed of separate middle schools in the Lexington area but is allowed to play as a single team — Henry lost 14-12 to end what was a remarkable season. Maybe the best ever for HCMS.

  • EHS Hall of Fame inducts its...

    Highlighted by the 1939 boys’ basketball team, the Eminence Hall of Fame inducts its sixth class this weekend, in conjunction with the high school’s football game against Trimble County on Friday night.

  • MacKenzie Peyton headed to state!

    Winning the North Central Kentucky Conference championship for the first time since the 1990s, the Henry County boys’ golf team came through when it mattered the most.

    The Wildcats hosted the conference tournament last Tuesday at the Henry County Country Club, finishing with a four-person combined score of 339 to win by four strokes. It was the focal point of 2010.

  • Kasten trying to get individuals...

    After losing two district games last week and winning what could have been the deciding game for the conference championship, Henry County coach Jon Kasten said he has not been pleased with his team’s recent play on the volleyball court.

    The Ladycats were coming off five straight wins before dropping three of their next four. They are now 8-6 overall.

  • It’s a 61-0 win for...

    On a night with a lot riding on the line, the Eminence football team dominated Bracken County on Friday to open District Four play with a 61-0 victory.

    The Warriors entered the game at 1-3 and were still searching for their first win against an in-state school — the one earlier win came against Burch High School in West Virginia. It was also Eminence’s Homecoming Night and was the opener of a four-week stretch of games against district teams that determines who makes the postseason and who hosts playoff games.

  • Cats ready to move on after loss

    A week after upsetting Anderson County in what was one of the biggest wins for the Henry County football program, the Wildcats took a 49-13 loss to Owensboro Catholic on Friday night.

    It was not what coach Lyndon Johnson was looking for, especially coming off the huge win against Anderson.

    Owensboro Catholic was ahead 21-0 after the first quarter, scored the game’s first 28 points, did not allow the visiting Wildcats a touchdown until the second half, and cruised in for the 36-point victory.

  • Eminence gets another test from...

    The improving Eminence volleyball team played just one match last week, dropping its lone outing to Martha Layne Collins High School, 2-0, on Thursday night.

    Coach Stephanie Meadows was not pleased with her squad’s performance but did say she hopes they can come away from this game with a stronger desire to win, and play competitive against the top teams like Collins.

  • Wildcats drop ‘...

    Playing against the one team they had beaten this season, the Henry County Wildcats lost to Owen County, 3-0, last Thursday night in what was their final home soccer game of 2010.

    The Wildcats beat Owen on Aug. 19, but could not repeat with another win exactly five weeks later to drop their overall record to 1-10 heading down the final stretch.

  • Ladycats end streak with two...

    Ending their three-game winning streak — the longest ever for a soccer program started three years ago — the Henry County Ladycats dropped games to Oldham County and Spencer County last week.

    The Ladycats, who were coming off consecutive wins over Shelby County, Owen County and Bryan Station, took a 6-0 loss to Oldham last Monday night, then took an 11-2 loss to Spencer County on Thursday. The Cats are currently 4-5 overall.

  • Most wins in five years for EHS...

    The Eminence volleyball team’s 2-1 win over Bardstown High School last Thursday night gave the Lady Warriors four wins, their most in five years.

    This year, the improving squad has beaten Evangel Christian on Aug. 10, Bardstown on Aug. 26, Gallatin County on Sept. 7 and Bardstown again last week for a 4-10 overall record. With six matches still remaining, it’s already the best mark since 2005.
