  • Classy end for a coach who will...

    I will say there’s very few people — if any — happy that Chris Engstrand has decided to leave the Henry County High School football program, but nobody can blame him. How can they?

    Engstrand’s official decision to leave came on Jan. 11 with a letter of resignation to HCHS Athletics Director Todd Gilley. His wife, Jaime, lost her father in November and they decided to move closer to her mother in Larue County. Like he has preached to his players during the last four seasons, family is a first priority.

  • It’s second win for...

    The Eminence Warriors put their second check in the win column in dominating fashion Saturday night, jumping out to a big early lead and winning 88-51 over Riverside Christian.

    The Warriors started the basketball game on a 13-0 run, led 33-10 after the first quarter, 56-24 at the half and cruised in for the unchallenged 37-point victory. Eminence coach Chris Nethery said the teams decided to play with a running clock during the final two quarters to speed up the game and prevent injuries. Besides timeouts, the clock continuously ticked down the final 16 minutes.

  • 31st District knotted up in 3-...

    With Henry County’s 59-44 win over Gallatin County Saturday afternoon, the boys’ 31st District is now in a three-way tie for the top spot in next month’s district tournament.

  • Wildcats pull away after close...

    It took more than 25 minutes for the Henry County Wildcats to outlast their cross-county rivals Eminence, then they put it in overdrive.

    On paper, host Henry was big favorites over Eminence in the first clash of the two high schools this boys’ basketball season. But the first three quarters featured an Eminence team that would not back down. The Warriors jumped out to an early 12-5 lead, were in front 14-10 after the first quarter and led for much of the first half last Thursday night inside Roy L. Winchester Gym.

  • Highland Renaissance 24-Hour Race

    The Highland Renaissance site in Eminence will host a 24-hour footrace on March 13-14, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday and finishing at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

  • Rivalry full of nerds

    I had no idea so many students in the county were such comedians. I sure got a laugh last Thursday night at the boys’ basketball showdown between Henry County and Eminence inside Roy L. Winchester Gym.

    I hadn’t seen so many taped glasses, plaid clothes, bow ties, pocket protectors, short pants or suspenders since I was an elementary-aged dreamer thinking it was so cool to be a nerd after watching “Revenge of the Nerds” for the umpteenth time.

  • Eminence girls have a short stay...

    The Eminence girls stay in the 8th Region All “A” Classic was a short one this year as the basketball squad was knocked out in the opening round with a 64-28 loss to Williamstown last Tuesday night.

  • Henry Co. girls get back on track

    In their only basketball game last week, the Henry County Ladycats jumped back on the winning side with a 53-41 victory at Grant County on Saturday night.

    The Ladycats, who were coming off important losses to 31st District teams Carroll County and Owen County the week before, improved to 7-8 with the Grant win. Grant dropped to 6-10.

    Grant scored eight of its first nine possessions and was ahead 16-13 after the first quarter. Henry then held Grant to just 25 points the rest of the way, winning by 12 points.

  • The Highland Renaissance 24-Hour...

    The Highland Renaissance site in Eminence will host a 24-hour footrace on March 13-14, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday and finishing at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

  • HC hosts a double double-header

    Henry County High School was jam-packed with basketball games Saturday night with a double double-header against Owen County.

    The Henry boys’ varsity team played Owen at 6 p.m. inside legendary Roy L. Winchester Gym, and at the same time the girls’ junior varsity teams were playing in the newer auxiliary gym. Then, the roles were reversed as the girls’ varsity teams played inside the larger gym and boys’ JV played in the smaller one. It was four high school games in less than three hours.
