  • McKee elected to National...

    Henry County’s Jim McKee, who is the USATF President for Kentucky, was elected to the National Associations Committee at the annual USATF national meeting recently held in Indianapolis.

    McKee will work on communications. Also at the meeting, the 2009 Jesse Owens awards were given to Sanya Richards and Tyson Gay. Richards was the world champion in both the 400-meter and the 1,600-meter relay, while Gay broke the American record in the 100-meter dash twice and he had four of the top-five fastest times in the world. McKee is shown with Gay, above, during the USATF meeting.

  • Henry represented in All-Star...

    Playing for the East, Henry County High School’s Erick Butler, Chris Price and Cole Crouch were selected and played in the annual East-West All-Star football game at Southern High School on Saturday.

    The top seniors from the Louisville area competed in the contest hosted by the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association. Bullitt Central’s Mike Gossett coached the West team, Oldham County’s Matt Brown coached the East and the West won 40-20 on a cold and windy day.

  • Middle School Basketball

    Henry 34, Owen 27: The Henry County Middle School boys’ seventh-grade basketball team took to the floor against Owen County on Dec. 7 hoping to avenge a 13-point loss earlier in the season, and that’s exactly what the Cats did with a 34-27 win.

    Henry was ahead by nine points at the half, thanks to an intense defense.

  • Wildcats continue progressing on...

    Still putting the pieces together, Henry County’s first-year head coach Derek Springate and his Wildcats dropped their record to 1-3 and started 31st District play at 0-1 with a 48-36 loss at Gallatin County on Friday night.

    Afterwards, Springate said it was the best his team had played up to that point — better than Henry’s 40-37 win over Trimble County in its season opener, the 67-43 loss to Model and the 61-34 loss to Walton-Verona.

  • Metcalfe finished with torn ACL

    Rachael Metcalfe’s sophomore basketball season at Eminence High School lasted just one minute, six seconds.

    The post player went to the floor holding her knee in the season opener against Henry County on Dec. 3, just 1:06 into the county matchup. She missed the rest of that game, had to sit out the next three and was recently told she cannot play the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Eminence coach Carter Martin said Metcalfe will have surgery later this month.

  • Springate era starts with...

    Still under heavy construction, the Derek Springate era at Henry County High School officially started last Tuesday night with a 40-37 win over Trimble County.

    It continued with a 67-43 loss to Richmond Model on Thursday and a 61-34 loss to Walton-Verona on Saturday for a 1-2 start after the first week to an unpredictable season.

  • Ladycats vs. Lady Warriors

    For the 10th straight time, the Henry County girls’ basketball team defeated its cross-county rival Eminence. For the first time, it came in the season opener.

    Playing at Roy L. Winchester Gym in the first game of the 2009-10 season for both schools last Thursday night, the Ladycats jumped out to an early lead and stretched it to 67-13 by the time the final horn sounded. It was Henry’s 10th consecutive win over Eminence, dating back to January 2005.

  • Warriors 0-2 in first week

    After the Eminence Warriors dropped basketball games to Gallatin County and Heritage Academy in the opening week, second-year coach Chris Nethery said the one area his squad is lacking is consistent hard work.

  • Ultra distance race March 13-14...

    The Highland Renaissance site in Eminence will host a 24-hour footrace on March 13-14, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday and finishing at 8 a.m. on Sunday.

  • Warriors say bye, again

    Less than one year after the sudden death of Dewayne Douglas, another assistant football coach at Eminence High School has passed away. Off the field, it’s been a tough year for these Warriors.

    Don Daniels, a former head coach and high school principal who has been with the EHS football program the previous eight years, died last Thursday. His funeral was Monday in Louisville and, fittingly, he was laid to rest in a cemetery next to Male High School’s practice football field. Coach Daniels was 72.
