  • 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.

  • Magness, Hartlage are Honorable...

    According to head coaches across the state, Henry County seniors Luke Magness and Justin Hartlage were two of the best football players in Kentucky this season.

    The Courier-Journal’s 2010 All-State Football Team was announced the day after Christmas, and both Magness and Hartlage were selected All-State Honorable Mention. There were 165 coaches who voted for the players, who were split into First Team, Second Team, Third Team and Honorable Mention.

  • Jim McKee selected as one of top...

    Jim McKee of Port Royal was recently selected as one of the top track and field officials in the country, being named in a top-five list out of the 18,000 to 20,000 who were eligible.

    At the National Convention for Track and Field on Dec. 3 at Virgina Beach, McKee and four others were listed as potentials to win the Charles Ruter Award, which recognizes the top official in the country. There were 30 who were originally selected, and that list was eventually narrowed down to just five before the winner was named at the convention.

  • HCIT is back

    After a long layoff, Jason Holland brought back the Henry County Invitational Tournament when he was in charge of the boys’ basketball program a few years back. Now, Derek Springate is doing the same.

    It’s back!

    For the first time in three seasons, the Wildcats will host the HCIT, which used to be one of the top winter-break tournaments in the state, played in Roy L. Winchester Gym.
