  • Warriors repel Rebels; now 4-0

    For the first time since 2009, the Eminence Warriors defeated the Owen County Lady Rebels.

    In that time, the Warriors hadn’t taken a game, let alone a match, from the Lady Rebels.

    But Thursday night, the Warriors made history, and extended their record to 4-0.

    The win came in a decisive fifth game, the team’s second in three days.

  • EHS picks 5 to blast Caverna

    A new defensive formation paid off big in the form of five interceptions as the Eminence Warriors conquered Caverna 22-0 in their season opener.

    Key to the win was a strong performance by the Eminence secondary, which picked off five Caverna passes, part of a 6-2 turnover battle.

    “We used a new defensive formation that we have been working on in the spring and summer and it worked out well for us,” head coach Steve Frommeyer said. “Five different players intercepted passes.”

  • Mustangs run roughshod over...

    It was the first quarter that hurt.

    As the Henry County Wildcats squared off against the North Oldham Mustangs Saturday night in Goshen, they were down early, and had trouble recovering in what became a 38-7 Mustangs victory.

    North Oldham started off with a 71-yard touchdown run on their first rushing play of the night.

    Later in the first quarter, Henry County gave up a 45-yard punt return to go down 14-0.

  • Lady Cats pick up 1st win

    After a pair of rough losses to Shelby County and Collins, the Henry County Lady Cats bounced back with solid teamwork to get their first win of the season at Gallatin County.

    The Lady Cats were so strong, they took out Gallatin County 3-0 in the best-of-five match, that featured a dominant 25-9 second game.

    Henry County got off to a slow start in the first game by going down 3-0.

  • Is something special brewing at...

    I know it’s early and, as an old coach, I’m leery of getting excited about early season success, but I get the feeling that the Warriors volleyball team just might be a special group this year.

    The team chemistry seems great, their energy level is high and while the focus still comes and goes a little, it is pretty consistent for this early in the season. The players all have a great will to win which is probably the most important ingredient for team success.

  • Instructional Basketball League

    Cornerstone Christian Academy will have a fall instructional league beginning Saturday, Sept. 15. It will run four Saturdays until Oct. 6. Each week will have two hours of instruction followed by a game.

  • Dees to hit the diamond for...

    Former Eminence high school softball player Shelby Dees will be joining the Georgetown College Tigers’ softball team when play begins in 2013.

    Along with Sandy Young of Allen County-Scottsville and Rachel Simms of Bullitt East, Dees rounds out a strong recruiting year for the Tigers.

    According to Georgetown Coach Thomas Thornton in a news release, these three players will add versatility to the team.

  • History-making Olympics

     

    The 30th Olympiad is now in the history books and it will be remembered for many things, including all the athletes who will be remembered as the best their respective sports have ever produced. Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps and the beach volleyball duo Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh all cemented their place in Olympic and sporting history with dominating performances yet again.

  • Warriors serve up a 2-0 record

    After the kill shot she fired over the net dropped to the floor, Tiffany Thomas pumped her fist and roared.

    The shot sealed the second win in a row for the Warriors as they downed the Waggener Wildcats 25-22, 25-20, and gave Eminence its best start since 2005. It also capped an electric second-game comeback, which included a crucial nine-serve run by Emily Coomes.

    Coach Stephanie Barrows credited strong play at the net and Coomes’ serves in the second game as key moments in the closely contested match.

  • Lady Cats lose focus, fall to...

    Despite getting off to a good start against the Lady Demons of Williamstown, the Henry County Lady Cats dropped their season opener last week.

    The Lady Cats got off to a good start, winning the first game 25-18, but then stumbled in games 2 and 3, 18-25, 21-25, to lose their first match of the season.
