  • Cards end Cats' season 53-20

    The Henry County Wildcats football team traveled to Wayne County Friday night to take on the 9-1 Cardinals in the first round of the KHSAA Class 3A playoffs. The Cardinals came away with a convincing 53-20 win to move on to the second round against Louisville Central. For the Wildcats the season ended at 3-8.

    The Wildcats came out of the first quarter with a 7-6 lead but Wayne County’s balanced offense and strong defense took a toll in the second, putting the game away with 26 unanswered points.

  • From cross to the Boss

     Today’s column is going to be a bit eclectic. I want to talk about two of my favorite things: cross country and Bruce Springsteen. Some of you are already saying to yourselves; why are you going to write about a rock and roll singer in a sports column. To that I respond: be patient we’ll get to that a little later.

    Measuring success

    Cross country season ended for local athletes this week. Henry County hosted the Class AA Regional meet Saturday and, alas, did not have any runners qualify for state.

  • Warriors fall to Bellevue, 48-8

    Against a bigger, more experienced team, the Eminence Warriors held their ground for one half in the Class A Playoffs Friday night.

    But the Bellevue Tigers’ superior size and strength took a toll on the Warriors in the second half as Bellevue pulled away for a 48-8 victory. Bellevue, now 7-4, will travel to Frankfort for the second round against the 10-1 Panthers.

    Eminence’s season ends at 7-4.

  • Cats host 2A, Region 3 regional


    The Henry County cross country team closed out their season on Saturday by hosting the Class AA regional championships at the Highlands Renaissance Park in Eminence on a cold, rainy day.

    The Cats ran well, but failed to qualify anyone for the state meet in the highly competitive races.

    Lilly Golden led the girls’ team with a season best time of 22:23.

  • Warriors dominate Clinton 42-8

    The Eminence Warriors finished the regular season at home Friday night with a 42-8 Parent-Night victory over the Clinton County Bulldogs. The win left the Warriors with a 7-3 record to close out the season.
    The Warriors were able to put big offensive numbers up despite the wet and windy conditions that blanketed the state Friday night.

  • Records can be deceiving

    I’m sure that there may be some disagreement with me on this, but I think Henry County might have played their toughest schedule ever this season. Statistically, their opponents were pretty impressive.
    The Wildcats opponents’ overall record was 59-41. When you take out Elizabethtown’s 1-9 record it is 58-33. Aside from E-town, the only team with a losing record was Class 5A Woodford County who played a pretty tough schedule themselves and finished 4-6.

  • Helping dreams take flight

    While many students were using fall break to catch up on their sleep or playing video games incessantly, the Eminence Warriors football team was helping a group of people to better the quality of their life. At the same time, the Warriors were learning some great life lessons.

  • Wildcats fall to Bears, 21-0, in...

    Wet, windy and chilly conditions on Friday made for a miserable night in more ways than one for the Henry County Wildcats.
    The Cats fell 21-0 to visiting Spencer County in the regular season finale, a game in which the dismal conditions resulted in turnovers for both teams.
    But Spencer County found enough offense to take advantage of the Wildcats’ miscues, scoring 3 touchdowns on the night. Henry County mustered just 108 yards of total offense for the evening.
