  • The 2009-10 season tips off this...

    Christian Laettner reminds me each year that basketball season is here. It never fails.

    Each November I get fired up because the NBA is in full swing and men’s college basketball is just beginning. So I make a trip to the basement to paw my way through dozens of old basketball tapes to spike my excitement.

    Of course I have to watch the 1996 Kentucky team win the national title. I have to watch an old game of Michael Jordan playing for the Bulls. And I have to watch, gulp, that Kentucky-Duke game from 1992. I can’t help it!

  • A look at the upcoming EHS boys...

    Playing more games during the off-season than ever before and growing physically, the Eminence boys’ basketball team has matured from the final game in February to this week’s season opener.

    In his second season as the head coach after taking over the program from Keith Blackburn, Chris Nethery has been very pleased with his team’s progression. The Warriors, who never before played a full summer schedule, played around 35 games during the summer and a majority of the players added around 15 more games with AAU basketball.

  • A look at the upcoming HCHS...

    With no seniors on last year’s 10-15 squad, the Henry County girls’ basketball team returns all of its key players for another go around. Todd Gilley, who returns to the sideline as the team’s head coach, can already see a difference.

    The Ladycats have four seniors, four juniors, six sophomores and five freshmen on the roster. They have more depth, more experience and have improved in most areas of their play, Gilley said.

  • Turkey Cup this Saturday at...

    In an attempt to continue to build soccer in the county, former Henry County High School players John Harp and Josh Clark have organized a soccer game scheduled for this Saturday, which the duo titled the Turkey Cup.

    The game will be played at Harry Hill Park starting at 3 p.m. and lasting until around 6 p.m. Anyone in Henry County is eligible to play with Harp and Clark dividing two equal teams before the Turkey Cup kicks off – those showing up late will also be put on one of the two teams as the game progresses.

  • Cats growling for region finals

    After Friday night’s exciting 14-0 win over Elizabethtown in the second round of the Class 3-A State Playoffs, no football team at Henry County High School has won more games than this 2009 squad. And if these Wildcats can have it their way, they will tack on a few more victories before the season is over.
