  • EHS shifts focus to Region 5

    After racing at the Meet of Champions at Masterson Station Park in Lexington on Saturday, the Eminence cross-country team has shifted its focus to the all-important Class A Region 5 Championship.

    The regional meet, which will be held at the Trimble County Park this Saturday, has been the one race the Warriors have been aiming towards all season.

It’s one of the largest cross-country meets in Kentucky with more than 10 separate races.

  • HC JV wins football conference...

    While the Henry County High School varsity football team has been on a roll to finish the regular season at 8-2 and win the Class 3-A District Four title, the junior varsity squad has been equally impressive.

    The younger players had a 6-1 record this season and won the conference championship on Oct. 24 with an 8-0 victory over Grant County in the finals. The JV program is making that transition from middle school to varsity much easier. Ray Isaacs is the team’s head coach and coaches defense; Cliff Dawson coaches offense. There were 21 freshmen and seven sophomores.

  • HC preps for tough Region 3...

    Shortly after running two miles close to 100-percent on Monday afternoon at practice, the Henry County cross-country runners toed the starting line again for one mile all out. Minutes later, they sprinted past coach Greg Woods one by one to complete their final tough workout of the season.

  • Searching for the missing link

    There is something that just doesn’t feel right about this school year. So far, I’ve covered every type of game. I’ve covered wins. I’ve covered losses. I’ve covered nail biters. I’ve covered blowouts. By now, I’ve interviewed coaches hundreds of times, talked to players and written too many stories to keep count. Until Saturday night, I couldn’t put my finger on that something that is missing. Now I can.

  • Title IX public forum

  • HC Cats will be back to DeSales...

    Cassey Fischer placed fifth in the girls’ varsity race, Eric Phillips placed 14th in the boys’ varsity race and the Henry County Cats got the opportunity to test out the same course their regional championship will use two weeks later.

  • Wildcats remain perfect in...

    Outside of a mark in the win-loss column, there wasn’t much at stake for the Henry County football team in Friday night’s game at Spencer County. The Wildcats had already secured the regular-season District Four championship and were already guaranteed to be at home in at least the first round of the Class 3-A State Playoffs.

    But the Wildcats moved the football for 30 first downs, finished with 253 passing yards and had 445 total offense en route to a 33-20 victory over the host Bearcats. It was just the effort coach Chris Engstrand was looking for.
