  • Ladycats win county showdown

    Compared to the first time the Eminence girls’ team played cross-county rival Henry County 12 weeks ago, Henry’s head coach Todd Gilley said Eminence has a “much improved basketball team.”

    But Gilley’s squad was on fire last Friday night as the Ladycats knocked down 11 3-pointers and cruised in for a 71-26 victory. The Cats, who also beat Eminence 67-13 in the season opener on Dec. 3, has now won 11 straight games over Eminence dating back to January 2005.

  • ‘Final exam&rsquo...

    Finishing up the regular season with wins over Williamstown and Trimble County, the Henry County boys’ basketball team is now ready for post-season action to start this Wednesday.

    Coach Derek Springate said each team in Kentucky is even at 0-0 and all that really matters are the district tournaments, which start this week. Henry plays Owen County (at Gallatin County High School) in the 31st District tournament on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Springate is stressing to his players the importance of putting the regular season behind them and focusing on Owen.

    The Eminence boys’ basketball team dropped its final four regular-season games to enter the postseason with a 5-20 record.
