  • Wildcats slip past Centurions

    Against one of the best teams they’ve faced this season, the Henry County Wildcats put together a complete game, and came away with a 4-point win.

    The Christian Academy of Louisville Centurions were coming off of a 4-point loss to St. Xavier, the 14th ranked team in the first Litkenhous rankings of the season.

    Strong inside play from towers Austin Young and Derek Jeffries, along with strong floor games from the Cats’ guards, allowed the team to take control in the third quarter, and hold off the Centurions.

  • Role Reversal

    In front of their largest non-tournament crowd, the Henry County Wildcats clawed their way out of a huge first-quarter hole to eke out a win over the Eminence Warriors

    It was a role-reversal from the teams’ previous meeting at Eminence, when the Warriors climbed out of their own first-quarter deficit to take the win on a last-second shot.

    This time, after falling behind 22-8 in the first quarter, the Wildcats fought their way back, and took a 5-point win on Jan. 8.

  • Warriors bounce back

     

    Despite a lackluster performance, the Eminence Warriors took on the Covington Latin Trojans Saturday and pulled away for a 12-point win.

    The Warriors got out to a 14-11 lead in the first quarter with 5 points from Jalen Dixie and contributions from four other players.

    The Warriors had trouble finding their shooting form in the second period but stretched the lead to 7 points going into halftime outscoring the Trojans 13-9. Dixie had 5 more points and was in double-digits by the break.

  • Lady Cats drop Mustangs, Bears

    Now that their bout with the flu has passed, the Henry County Lady Cats are back to full strength.

    That full strength was on display when the Lady Cats hosted the North Oldham Lady Mustangs last week, coming out on top with an 8-point victory.

  • Warriors fall to Lady Raiders in...

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team hosted the Trimble County Lady Raiders in the first round of the 8th Region “All A Classic” on Jan. 9 and came out on the short end 74-16.

    The Lady Raiders used full court pressure to take an early 6-0 lead before GaiLynn Carroll hit a 3-pointer to put the Warriors on the board. The Lady Raiders then went on a 17-0 run to close out the period and lead by 20 points.

    The Warriors managed to score 8 points in the 2nd period but found it difficult to stop the Lady Raider’s offense.

  • Despite injuries, Rahm is...

    Zach Rahm a former linebacker and running back for the Henry County Wildcats just wrapped up his junior year playing for the Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers in Owensboro.

    Rahm started at outside linebacker for the Panthers this year.

    Though his season was cut short by a concussion, through eight games he had 16.5 tackles, one interception, 1.5 tackles for loss and one pass breakup.

  • Panthers dominte Cats

    When the Henry County Wildcats and Carroll County Panthers met last week, it appeared that another barnburner between the district rivals was underway.

    But a 6-1 Panthers’ run in the 1st quarter dashed that hope; the Panthers never

    looked back in a 29-point victory that hurt the Wildcats’ chances of a high seed in the district tournament.

  • Mitchell's Grand

    It happened quietly over the holiday break. Eminence Senior Brandon Mitchell surpassed the 1,000-career points mark in Metcalfe County.

    Acknowledgement of the accomplishment was planned for Friday night’s game against Evangel Christian once Mitchell got his first basket of the game; though it took a little time to get there — Mitchell had a tough offensive night.

    The crowd and Mitchell had to wait until late in the third quarter before he finally scored.
