  • 2010: A year full of thrilling...

    While the world continued to spin around during 2010, full of the usual scandals and over-played headlines — often times pertaining to athletes — our local teams were making their own stories.

  • Cats third at own HCIT

    Ending the year in style — and maturing as a basketball team along the way — the Wildcats finished third in their own Henry County Invitational Tournament last week.

    They lost to Frankfort (60-53) in the opening game of the HCIT, but went on to win three straight, over Williamstown (67-48), Letcher County Central (41-39) and Boyle County (49-36), to finish third in the standings out of eight teams.

  • Ladycats are even at 5-5...

    Shaking off a four-game drought, the Henry County girls’ basketball team has now won three of its last four and evened up its overall record at 5-5 entering the new year.

    The Ladycats lost to John Hardin (53-45) in the opener of the First Citizens Bank Classic last Monday, then beat Atherton (54-28) and Iroquois (42-21) the following two days in the tournament hosted by North Bullitt High School.

  • EHS still trying to put four...

    Chris Nethery said his Eminence boys’ basketball team is still trying to put four solid quarters together in one game, resulting in four losses in three days at the Shirley Kearns Invitational at Model High School last week.

    The Warriors lost to Model (74-34) on Tuesday, Garrard County (58-42) and Pineville (52-44) on Wednesday, and Whitefield Academy (65-44) on Thursday to leave the invitational winless in four tries. They dropped to 2-10 on the year.

  • Lady Warriors drop four at KCD...

    After losing all four games in the KCD Holiday Classic last week, the Eminence girls’ basketball team has now dropped nine straight and is 1-10 this season.

    The Lady Warriors lost to Sayre (47-13) on Monday, host Kentucky Country Day (48-28) on Tuesday, Shawnee (48-31) on Wednesday and Brown (36-27) on Thursday in four consecutive days to close out 2010. Their one win this year was against Evangel Christian on Dec. 7, and since that time have dropped nine straight.

  • My own Christmas story...

    I admit: I broke a Christmas tradition this year, and I’m not too thrilled about it. The streak has ended.

    For the first time in a long time — so many years that I actually have no idea when — I did not watch “A Christmas Story” in its entirety. Yes, I know, this is not acceptable and will never happen again.

  • Lineup change sparks Warriors,...

    After a 47-36 loss to Somerset in the opening game of the Monticello Holiday All “A” Shootout last Monday night, Eminence head coach Chris Nethery decided to juggle the lineup in an attempt to spark his boys’ basketball team.
    It worked.

  • Henry County Invitational...

    In the only holiday tournament in the county this year, the Henry County boys’ basketball team is hosting the Henry County Invitational this week.

    The eight-team tournament started Tuesday and lasts all day Wednesday and Thursday inside Roy L. Winchester Gym. It marks the first time the HCIT is being played in a few years, which used to be one of the premier early-season tournaments in the area.

  • Wildcats win just one of four at...

    Henry County boys’ basketball coach Derek Springate said it was an up-and-down performance for his Wildcats at the Arby’s/KFC Holiday Classic at McCreary Central last week, where his team won just one of four games on four consecutive days.

    The Wildcats lost to Calvary Christian of Florida on Monday (71-66), Miami Senior of Florida on Tuesday (81-56) and Wayne County on Wednesday (94-62) before closing the tournament with a win over Rockcastle County on Thursday (64-48).

  • Vaughn scores 53, hits 11 threes...

    Junior sharp shooter Ally Vaughn scored a combined 53 points in three games last week but the Ladycats struggled as a team, winning one of three in the Pinkham Lincoln-Mercury Christmas Tournament at John Hardin High School over a three-day stretch.
