  • Middle School Warriors drop...


    The Eminence Middle School football team played the Gallatin County Middle School football team at home on Aug. 25. The Warriors fought hard for a 20-14 win.
    Eminence found the end zone first on a 20-yard-run by Austin Perry late in the first quarter. Gallatin threatened late in the 2nd quarter but the Warriors held strong at the goal line as time ran out to take a 6-0 lead into halftime.

  • Bengals results

    The Bengals JV team got their first win of the season with a 26-13 win over the New Castle Chiefs. On offense, the Bengals were led by Eli Amiott with two touchdowns and 95 yards rushing. Tyler Boyer had a 50-yard touchdown run and a two point conversion. Ethan Lankford had 80 yards rushing. On defense the Bengals were led by Boyer with 12 tackles Lankford with 10 and a fumble recovery for a touchdown and Amiott had eight tackles.

  • How low can they go?

    Hosting Williamstown High School on Aug. 23, the Henry County Boys’ Golf team posted their lowest score of the season — a 169-214 win.

    Head Coach Barney Sutley said the score was a seven-stroke improvement off of the season’s best score to date.

    Trent Whitaker led the Wildcats with a 38 — his low round on the season so far — followed by Matt Ricketts with a 42, followed by Nathan Paris with a 43, and Garrett Black with a 46. Allen Dillon, who also played but whose score was not counted toward the team total, shot a 53.

  • Ladycats storm back with 3-0 week

    The opening game of their season left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Ladycats. It burned. It stung. It wasn’t forgotten.

    After their 0-6 loss to Spencer County on Aug. 18, the Henry County High School Girls Soccer team roared back — beating Carroll County 3-1; Whitefield Academy 8-1; and Jeffersontown 3-2; all in the same week.

    That initial loss served to, as coach Shannon Snider said last week, shake the dust off. Last week’s wins boosted morale.

  • Wildcats drop the ball

    In their 28-6 loss to Walton-Verona, the Henry County Wildcats may have had better luck wrestling with a greased pig.

    “We could not hold onto the football,” Coach Jason Spencer said. “The ball hit the ground at least 15 times. (We had) no ball security.”

  • Warriors win battle; lose the war

    The coach was screaming as loud as the Lady Warriors faithful — but not in a bad way.

    With each point, she screamed. With each point she clapped. And with some, she threw her head back and threw her fist into the air, caught in the joy of the moment.

    As the Warriors volleyball team inched its way forward and took the lead in the second game of its best-of-three match against Bardstown, Stephanie Barrows was screaming, cheering, pumping her fist along with players on the bench and fans in the crowd.

  • Warriors soar over Golden Eagles...

    Barely two minutes into their game against Shawnee High School, the Eminence Warriors started a trend. It was the Bradley Foree-Brandon Mitchell connection — a record-setting connection.

    Together, the two teamed up for five touchdown pass receptions. Those touchdowns broke a schoole record held by Ed Berry for the most touchdown receptions in one game. Eminence Head Coach Steve Frommeyer said Mitchell’s five touchdown receptions are tied for second in the state’s history.

    Bengels start season
    with win over Trimble County

    The Campbellsburg Bengals Varsity got the season started off great with a 14-0 win over the Trimble County Raiders. The Bengals got on the board when Clay Ingabrand recovered a fumble in the endzone for a touchdown. Extra point was no good. The second score came when the Bengals kept the ball the entire third quarter and at the beginning of the fourth quarter Brandon Tindle scored from 5 yards out.

  • Mitchell steps in at key moment

    General Manager

    It may have been the critical point in the game — keep Warrior momentum going and stifle the Colonels of Caverna.

    But the starting quarterback was out of the game — temporarily — with cramps.

    Eminence High School quarterback Bradley Foree had just left the game, and his return was questionable.

  • Anderson, First Spike games...

    General Manager

    They’re “volleyballed out,” according to head coach Stephanie Barrows, but the Eminence volleyball team is on a roll.

    In the First Spike Invitational Tournament, held at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center on Saturday, the Lady Warriors won the bronze division, giving them some much needed confidence heading into this week.

    The team played five games, spread among pool and tournament play. “The first little bit of it was pool play for fun,” Barrows said, while the second part was all business.
