  • Magness named sportsman

    There is more to Luke Magness than what you see on the football field — more than his powerful right arm that threw for a school-record 6,280 career passing yards at Henry County High School, or even his ability to use his mind to pick apart defenses.

    Magness was the top passer in Class 3A this season with 2,510 yards in the air. He was named the District Four Player of the Year his last two seasons of high school. He was selected and played in the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association East-West All-Star Game. He was named All-State Honorable Mention.

  • Henry breaks records at Eastern...

    Cassey Fischer broke the school record for 1,600 meters, Eric Phillips lowered his own school mark in the same event and Tommy Williams set a new personal record in the triple jump as the Henry County track team competed at the Eastern Relays all day Saturday.

  • Cats play top teams in tourney

    Playing in their most competitive softball tournament in a long time, the Henry County Ladycats beat Nelson County on Friday night before losing to Eastern, Bullitt Central and Reidland on Saturday in the Bullitt County Invitational Tournament.

  • Thomas More College gets Byrone...

    Entering his senior season in the summer, Eminence’s Byrone Foree asked his football coaches what his chances were of playing at the next level.

    Larry Montgomery said Foree could not play football in college, that he hadn’t proved himself yet, but that he could prove him wrong. Mark Meadows went a different route, saying it was up to Foree if Foree could play in college, that it mattered what he had in his heart.

  • Coach Hunsaker says Cats are...

    Austin Hunsaker said his Henry County Wildcats have recently lost focus on the baseball field, resulting in two losses in their only games last week.

    Mental mistakes, Hunsaker said, have been an issue lately. After winning four of five games, the Wildcats lost to Owen County last Monday night, 9-8, then to Christian Academy-Louisville on Thursday, 9-2. They entered this week at 6-8 overall record.

    A majority of the games during the last two-week stretch have been canceled or delayed due to the weather, and since that time the Wildcats have back pedaled.

  • First win of season for EHS...

    Brandon Mitchell pitched his best game this season, his teammates backed him with no errors on the night and Bradley Foree drove in Eminence’s only two runs as the Warriors beat visiting Berea last Tuesday for their first win of the season.

    The Warriors lost their first six games to open the year, but were able to put it all together against a Berea squad that entered the game at 7-2.

  • Important games due up for...

    With important games due up for the Henry County softball team, coach Matt Wright said his squad is starting to play well at the right time.

    What is at stake for the Ladycats: another North Central Kentucky Conference championship, a sixth straight 31st District title and a first-ever 8th Region crown.

  • Two more wins for Eminence

    Continuing its best-ever start, the Eminence softball team bounced back from its first two losses of the season with two big wins last week.

    The Warriors opened the season winning their first four games, then lost two before beating both Sayre and Kentucky Country Day last Tuesday and Thursday nights for the 6-2 start.

  • Rain: go away!

    The site on Henry County’s track Saturday morning was not what it was planned to be when the April 23 date was set for the Wildcat Relays months ago.

    I had it highlighted on my calendar, and was looking forward to what was going to be the largest track meet in the county.

    There were supposed to be team tents set up around the track. There were supposed to be athletes running laps, jumping, throwing, passing batons. The stadium was supposed to be full of yelling spectators. The starters’ gun was going to be emptied of all its blank bullets.

  • Luke takes his ‘cool hand’ to...

    One of the most prolific passers to ever come out of Henry County has decided to play football at Thomas More College, making his choice to play for the Saints official on Friday in front of family, coaches and friends.
