  • Wildcats go claw-to-claw with...

    All it took was one play. Just one.

    And it was a play that some coaches in the same position might not make. Go for the safe choice, and a point-after-touchdown, or go for the win on a two-point conversion?

    With the Henry County Wildcats up by one perilous point against Bellevue after a Tigers’ touchdown, Bellevue went all or nothing.

    They went for two — and got it.

    “They made one more play than we did,” Henry County Head Coach Jason Spencer said. “They went for two and converted.”

  • Henry bounces back from S....

    A one-win, one-loss week might make some coaches grit their teeth. Not Shannon Snider.

    The Henry County Girl’s Soccer team head coach found the silver lining in the team’s 0-10 loss to South Oldham on Aug. 29.

    “We played really, really hard the whole game, which, a few years ago, wasn’t necessarily happening with that type of team,” he said. “We put out a good effort the whole 80 minutes.”

  • Henry falls to Woodford, now 0-3

    It happened almost in slow motion.

    Moments after Woodford County ran in its first touchdown, freshman Mason Fish was in the backfield, waiting to receive the ensuing kickoff.

    Fish churned toward the Henry County 35-yard line, on what appeared to be a solid run. Then, with a Yellowjacket wrapped around his waist, it happened... the ball popped out, stripped by the enemy. This, after a week of practices that no doubt focused on protecting the football at all costs.

  • Ladycats fight for win against...

    After the first game of their match against Williamstown, it would have been easy for the Henry County High School volleyball team to give up.

    They fell hard in the first game of the match, 13-25. But volleyball matches are fought in a best of three format, and the Ladycats saved their best for the second and third games.

    Henry County jumped out to an early, and commanding, 9-2 lead in the second game, and they never looked back.

  • A new color for the Warriors:...

    After a good week leading into the last games of August, the Eminence High School Volleyball team had trouble finding its rhythm last week.

    The Warriors fell 0-2 to Trimble County; 0-3 to Christian Academy of Indiana, 0-2 to Collins and 0-2 again to Trimble in the All A Classic to round out the week on Saturday.

    It was a tough pill to swallow.

    “It is hard, and it gets them down,” head coach Stephanie Barrows said. “It gets them back down into that losing mentality.”

  • Middle School Warriors drop...


    The Eminence Middle School football team played the Gallatin County Middle School football team at home on Aug. 25. The Warriors fought hard for a 20-14 win.
    Eminence found the end zone first on a 20-yard-run by Austin Perry late in the first quarter. Gallatin threatened late in the 2nd quarter but the Warriors held strong at the goal line as time ran out to take a 6-0 lead into halftime.

  • Bengals results

    The Bengals JV team got their first win of the season with a 26-13 win over the New Castle Chiefs. On offense, the Bengals were led by Eli Amiott with two touchdowns and 95 yards rushing. Tyler Boyer had a 50-yard touchdown run and a two point conversion. Ethan Lankford had 80 yards rushing. On defense the Bengals were led by Boyer with 12 tackles Lankford with 10 and a fumble recovery for a touchdown and Amiott had eight tackles.

  • How low can they go?

    Hosting Williamstown High School on Aug. 23, the Henry County Boys’ Golf team posted their lowest score of the season — a 169-214 win.

    Head Coach Barney Sutley said the score was a seven-stroke improvement off of the season’s best score to date.

    Trent Whitaker led the Wildcats with a 38 — his low round on the season so far — followed by Matt Ricketts with a 42, followed by Nathan Paris with a 43, and Garrett Black with a 46. Allen Dillon, who also played but whose score was not counted toward the team total, shot a 53.

  • Ladycats storm back with 3-0 week

    The opening game of their season left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Ladycats. It burned. It stung. It wasn’t forgotten.

    After their 0-6 loss to Spencer County on Aug. 18, the Henry County High School Girls Soccer team roared back — beating Carroll County 3-1; Whitefield Academy 8-1; and Jeffersontown 3-2; all in the same week.

    That initial loss served to, as coach Shannon Snider said last week, shake the dust off. Last week’s wins boosted morale.

  • Wildcats drop the ball

    In their 28-6 loss to Walton-Verona, the Henry County Wildcats may have had better luck wrestling with a greased pig.

    “We could not hold onto the football,” Coach Jason Spencer said. “The ball hit the ground at least 15 times. (We had) no ball security.”
