    Four young men from Henry County are competing at the collegiate level in a sport that doesn’t get much sports page coverage — shotgun. Jacob Yount, Connor Toole, Jordan Campbell and Garrett Black all are competing on the University of Kentucky shotgun team in their freshman year in Lexington.

  • Staring off on the right foot

    The Henry County Wildcats opened their season in the best of ways: with a win at home.

    The Cats opened their season on Tuesday, Nov. 27, against the North Bullitt Eagles, with a 59-49 win.

    The game featured several big runs by both teams but the Cats, despite inconsistent play, were able to pull out the 10-point victory because of dominate rebounding and clutch foul shooting down the stretch.

    The Cats opened the game with a 14-3 run.

  • Braves scalp Warriors

    The Eminence Warriors opened the season at home against the Grant County Braves and found the Braves’ pressure a little more than they could handle as Grant County forced the Warriors into about 30 turnovers on their way to a 68-51 victory.

    The Warriors scored the game’s first five points on a 3-pointer by Jalen Dixie and two free throws by Brandon Mitchell, before Grant County began to turn up the pressure. Grant then reeled off 12 points in a row and never looked back as they stretched the lead to 22-11 by the end of the first period.

  • Jitter, foul trouble mar opener

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team opened the season at home against Paris on Saturday evening and fell to the Lady Hounds 58-33.

    For the Warriors it was a matter of first game jitters to open the game and foul trouble in the 4th period that doomed them to defeat.

    The Lady Hounds opened a 14-4 lead in the first period on the strength of their best player, Alexis Tye, who had 8 points in the opening frame.
