  • Warriors advance to finals

    The Warriors’ run in the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament lasted until the final day, when the Eminence boys’ basketball team lost to Gallatin County in the finals — lasting longer than most had thought.

  • Three OTs for Ladycats

    Friday was a long night for the Henry County girls’ basketball team at Trimble County High School as all three games — freshman, junior varsity and varsity — went into overtime and Ally Vaughn ended her junior season with a broken finger.
    Trimble won the freshman game, Henry won the JV game and Trimble won the varsity game in three close calls that stretched out the night. The Ladycats lost 56-54 in varsity action.
    “It was a very long night,” Henry coach Todd Gilley said. “I will say our players battled the entire time.”

  • EHS girls drop two

    With two more losses last week, the Eminence girls’ basketball team is 1-18 on the season and is still searching for a win since beating Evangel Christian on Dec. 7.
    The Warriors lost to Moore on Thursday, 70-27, and Carroll County on Saturday, 72-13, to stretch out their streak to 17 straight losses. They played Shelby County on Tuesday night, and close out the regular season with games against Spencer County, Portland Christian, Newport and Henry County.

  • Henry Baughman goes into Tennis...

    Henry Baughman of Smithfield strolls into my office every once in a while, tells me about his most recent tennis tournament — undoubtedly another win — and oftentimes I write a brief about it for the paper. Sometimes I turn it into a story. But his most recent feat is more worthy than that.

  • Spencer joins the Wildcats

    Breaking news: Kentucky’s new football alignment has added Spencer to Class 3A District Three, joining Henry, Central, LaRue and Elizabethtown. No, not Spencer County.

  • Henry County goes with Jason...

    After sorting through nearly 50 applicants in a search for the new Henry County High School head football coach, the school announced Monday afternoon that Jason Spencer will take over the program.

    Spencer becomes the fourth coach within the last year. Chris Engstrand resigned last January, Ray Graham was hired in February, Graham resigned in June, and Lyndon Johnson was named the head coach in July with a one-year agreement.

  • Eminence moves on in All ‘A’

    In what Chris Nethery describes as one of the focal points of the entire basketball season, Eminence beat Williamstown, 56-52, last Wednesday night to advance to the semifinals of the 8th Region All “A” Classic tournament.

    It also gave the Warriors three straight wins — the first time that has happened in five seasons, dating back to February 2006. But moving on in the All “A” Classic, designed for the smallest 125 schools in Kentucky, was most important to Nethery.

  • Schroeder gets hot in 18-point...

    Ben Schroeder got the hot hand last Tuesday night, knocking down four three-pointers and scorching Oldham County for 18 points in a frantic final quarter.

    But visiting Oldham held on to its lead in the closing minutes, beating Schroeder’s Henry County squad 57-50. Shroeder finished the night with 28 points and six three-pointers, and his late-game spurt put the Wildcats in contention against one of the top teams in the 8th Region.

  • Eminence girls drop ‘winnable...

    Both teams were playing for their second win this season, but it was Augusta who came away with that second check in the win column with Saturday’s 53-23 victory over visiting Eminence.

    Augusta improved to 2-8; the Eminence Warriors dropped to 1-16. The Warriors’ one win this season was over Evangel Christian on Dec. 7, and since that time they have lost 15 straight. They were scheduled to play Evangel again last Friday but it was canceled because of the snow. It might be made up if a day can be scheduled.

  • Change of plans

    I had it all planned out. I was going to take the family to watch the Globetrotters at the KFC Yum! Center this past Sunday, enjoy all the action on the court, and try my best to write a column about the experience afterward.
