  • Cats conquer Archives


    The Archives Course in Frankfort was the site of the 29th annual Capitol View Classic and the Henry County cross country team competed there for the first time in several years.
    Many runners and coaches consider it one of the toughest courses in the state with long up hill runs and steep down hills. In fact the information packet sent out by organizers call it the infamous Archives course. Most runners don’t go there expecting to set personal records-they just want to survive it.

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Carroll County on Sept. 24 to take on the Lady Panthers and lost in 4 games, 20-25, 17-25, 25-5, 18-25.
    “We did not play well,” Coach Stephanie Barrows said. “The girls went into this game not focused and ready to play. The only game they showed up in was the 3rd game when they won 25-5. They didn’t play as a team or even communicate. We need to work on offense and defense. We need to work on our communication and ability to get focused for the games.”
