  • 'Cats give their all in 14-...

    They saved their best for last.

    It may not have been quite enough to overcome the Corbin Redhounds, who defeated the Wildcats 14-7, and advanced to the second round of the class 3A playoffs.

    “The kids played outstanding,” head coach Jason Spencer said.

    “The kids played hard, they never quit. It wasn’t depressing — our kids fought the entire game.”

  • A kick in the park

    Monday night, they gathered at a leisurely pace at Harry Hill Park; men and women of various ages and various athletic abilities.

    Once the teams were assembled, they took the small baseball field, in turns, to boot a soft-ish rubber ball as hard as they could.

    With rules similar to adult co-ed softball, two teams kicked it out for five innings before Odds & Ends was declared the winner with 12 runs to Campbellsburg Baptist Church’s zero.

    The teams were gatherd as part of a small, but enthusiastic group of adult kickball players.

  • Da Bears go deep, beat ‘Cats 40-...

    Take away the third quarter, and the Henry County Wildcats game at Spencer County would have a vastly different result.

    But the third quarter — in which Spencer County scored two unanswered touchdowns — put the Bears ahead and on their way to the final score of 40-27, handing the Wildcats a loss.

    “We got down in the third quarter, and kind of changed things around halfway through the third, and that seemed to open us up a little bit,” Henry County Head Coach Jason Spencer said. “We were able to move the ball.”

  • EHS, HCHS cross country prep for...

    It all comes down to one big meet for three senior cross country runners.
    Eminence senior Adam Case and Henry County seniors Hayden Hughes and Cassey Fischer will compete Saturday in regional tournaments that could determine whether or not they get a chance to run in the state tournament.

    For Case, it could be a dream come true.

  • Henry County hosts first...

    The Henry County Cross Country team hosted its first-ever invitational Saturday, drawing 255 athletes representing 12 different schools from around the region to  the Renaissance Run at the Renaissance Park in Eminence.

  • Wildcats thump Elizabethtown 57-...

    It was the performance they’d been waiting for.

    Leading into their game against Elizabethtown, the Henry County Wildcats had won just a single game.  There were glimmers of smart play, including good defensive stands against Central High School. In an emotional game against Bullitt Central, the Wildcats won with heart and determination.

    Against Elizabethtown, they put everything together and ran away, quite literally, with a 57-27 win over the visiting Panthers.

  • Warriors fall to Frankfort, 40-12

    The unbeaten Warriors met their match.

    “They were just better than us,” Eminence head coach Steve Frommeyer said.
    The Franklin High School Panthers came to town Friday, and were bigger — both in terms of numbers and sheer physical size — than the Warriors. And the Panthers handed Eminence its first loss, 40-12.

    Breaking their usual pattern of slow starts, Eminence got off to a quick one.

  • After tough end to volleyball...

    Heading into the 2011 season, Katie Ruff was worried.

    She was taking over a Henry County High School volleyball team that had three seniors, one of which had no previous volleyball experience, a junior, a sophomore and a whole bunch of freshmen.

    “I knew what I had to work with, I was a little worried when the season started out,” Ruff said. But, as the season played out, “as a whole, they really exceeded my expectations.”

  • Wildcats stung by Central

    For a few minutes against Central High School, it looked like Henry County had the right formula.

    The Wildcats put up a defensive stand that would lead to their first touchdown of the night. Later, they did something few other football teams in the state have managed to do — force Anthony “Ace” Wales to fumble the ball.

    But in the end, it would not be enough, as the Wildcats fell to Central, 15-54.

    “They have tremendous talent, as far as speed on the field,” Henry coach Jason Spencer said of the Yellowjackets.

  • Eminence 
to play for 1st place

    Getting off to a slow start has become a pattern for the Eminence Warriors football team.

    So far, it’s worked for them, and despite the slow start, Eminence ran away with a win against Paris High School on Oct. 14.

    The win assures Eminence of a first- or second- place finish, depending only upon how their Friday night game against Frankfort goes. The win also assures Eminence of a homefield advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
