  • 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.

  • Lady Cats hold their ground

    Illness decimated the Henry County Lady Cats last week.

    Henry played its third game against Carroll County down three starters — Colleen Coomes, Cheyenne Clark and Haley Bramblett. Kim Barmore played despite being sick herself.

    Despite being down three players, the Lady Cats came into this game hoping to get another victory — they’d beaten Carroll in the North American Steel tournament six days prior — against their rivals in a district seeding game.

  • Random thoughts from a random...

    The past week in the sports world has brought a few questions to mind:

    • How do we expect kids to display sportsmanship when the adults around them do not?

    • How can the Big East still be considered a step below the powerhouse conferences after what Louisville did to Florida?

    • Did anyone out there know that there is such a thing as the GoDaddy.com Bowl?

    • Will there still be 35 bowl games when the new bowl playoff system is put into place?
