    In basketball tournaments designed for the smallest 125 schools in Kentucky, Shelby Valley and Newport Central Catholic proved to be the top teams in the All “A” Classic state tournaments last week.

  • Confidence ‘sky high...

    After winning two basketball games last week, the Eminence Warriors have doubled their wins from last season and are showing signs of turning the corner with six games remaining until the postseason.

  • EHS girls celebrate with win

    It clung to their backs. It was big, mean and had sharp teeth. But last Thursday night, the Eminence Lady Warriors shook it off.

    With the 51-26 win over St. Francis, the monkey is now officially off the Warriors' backs. After starting the season at 0-18, it was their first feel-good moment of the year — better late than never. That monkey can now go mess with another squad.

  • Tough stretch gives Cats three...

    Finishing a tough three-game stretch with losses to Shelby County and North Oldham last week, the Henry County boys’ basketball team has now dropped three straight and are an even 11-11 overall heading into the final month of the season.

  • First victory for Lady Warriors

    Earning their fist basketball win of the season in dominating fashion, the Eminence Lady Warriors went up early and never looked back in a 51-26 outing over visiting St. Fancis last Thursday night.

  • Henry girls over Trimble in...

    The Henry County girls’ basketball team evened up its overall record at 9-9 with a 51-50 win over Trimble County last Thursday night, but it took an overtime to get the job done.

    The Ladycats built a 12-point lead in the first half but Trimble clawed its way back into the game and tied the score with 15 seconds left in regulation on a 3-pointer. Henry then outscored Trimble 7-6 in the overtime period to come away with the slim one-point victory.

  • Cooper nominated as Player of...

    Eminence High School football standout TJ Cooper has been nominated as an Old Spice Red Zone Player of the Year, according to a recent press release submitted by EHS coach Steve Frommeyer.

    Coaches from across the nation are naming one of their players as Player of the Year with each player nominated receiving a certificate to acknowledge the accomplishment. Each player is then eligible to be selected as one of 50 national Red Zone Player of the Year and be honored with a full-page feature in a national print publication.

  • HCHS Wildcats in a tough stretch...

    Before the South Oldham game last Thursday night, Derek Springate told his players “we’ll either come out ready to play or we won’t.” When his squad took to the court a few minutes later, he did not like the response he got.

    The Wildcats trailed for much of the game and lost 67-44 in what Springate described as a poor performance in his team’s only game last week. It left the Cats with an 11-9 record and improved South to 15-5.

  • Injuries hampering the Lady...

    On the verge of its first win this season, the Eminence girls’ basketball team is running out of time.

    The Lady Warriors, who have no seniors and had to move up middle school players to the varsity level due to injuries, are 0-17 with 10 games remaining in the regular season. Last week, the Warriors lost to powerhouse Anderson County 80-14 on Tuesday and narrowly missed that first win in a 38-31 outing against Silver Grove on Saturday. Both games were on the road.

  • Ladycats fourth seed in district

    Following Henry County’s 41-32 loss to Gallatin County Saturday night, postseason seeds for the girls’ 31st District are set.

    Owen County (11-7 overall, 4-2 district) has secured the first seed and will play Henry (8-9, 2-4) as the fourth seed. Carroll County (11-9, 3-3) plays Gallatin County (10-7, 3-3) in the other opening-round contest. The top two teams in the district tourney next month  will advance to the 8th Region tournament.
