  • District tourneys start this week

    After a hectic finish to the basketball regular season due to the snow, Kentucky high schools are scheduled to open district tournaments this week.

    The top-two teams from each district statewide advance to 16 regional tournaments, and each region champion moves on to the Sweet 16. The four county teams — Henry County High School boys and girls, and Eminence High School boys and girls — are part of the 8th Region, while Henry plays in the 31st District and Eminence in the 30th District.

  • Highland Renaissance 24-Hour...

    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 9 a.m. on Sunday. Due to Daylight Saving’s Time, which falls during the event, the finishing time has been pushed back one hour to get in the total 24 hours.

  • 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.

  • EHS 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament

  • Youth Baseball Signups

    The Henry County youth baseball signups will be held Feb. 25 and March 3 from 6-8 p.m. at the 4-H Center inside the Henry County fairgrounds, and again on March 6 from 9 a.m. until noon. Ages range from six to 15.

  • EHS drops final four

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

    The Warriors, who played Shelby County in the opening round of the 30th District tournament on Tuesday night past deadline, lost to Bellevue (68-61) last Wednesday, Beth Haven (66-41) on Thursday and Berea (53-35) on Saturday for the 5-20 mark.

    Chris Nethery said his squad did improve throughout the course of the season but they never developed that killer instinct.

  • Cassey Fischer Second Team All-...

    The only athlete from Henry County to be named All-State First Team, Second Team or Third Team during a fall sport in 2009, sophomore Cassey Fischer has been listed on the Second-Team All-State.

  • Wildcats over Warriors, again

    The Henry County boys’ basketball team beat Eminence 49-38 on Saturday night for its second win over its cross-county rival this season and eighth straight dating back to February 2006. But, on a night when Eminence answered most of Henry’s spurts, it wasn’t as easy as the score indicates as the streak was close to being snapped.

  • Henry County track practice...

    Practice starts for the Henry County track team after school this Monday, Feb. 22, followed by a meeting for all athletes and parents inside the high school’s cafeteria.

    The meeting was originally scheduled for last week but was canceled until Monday due to the icy road conditions.
