  • HCHS girls golf team takes NCKC

    When the Henry County girls golf team took to the links for the district tournament at the Henry County Country Club Tuesday morning, they were still riding a winning wave.

    On Sept. 20, the girls took the NCKC tournament by storm, winning the tournament as a team, and individually, with freshman MacKenzie Peyton winning a playoff hole with two other players.

    Peyton was in a three-way tie with teammate Ally Vaughn and Shelby Powers, heading into the playoff hole, which she won by shooting an even par.

  • Warriors hang on to beat Berea

    Through their first four games, the Eminence Warriors defeated their opponents with relative ease.

    Last week against Berea, despite a first half that showed some of the same ease, the Warriors held on to a seemingly tenuous lead, spending the bulk of the fourth quarter in their own territory offensively and defensively.

    Head coach Steve Frommeyer said the team played well in the first half, with the exception of the opening drive.

  • Wildcats win on senior night

    Update: Coach Lyndon Johnson lost his fight with cancer on the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 28. Visitation is set for 4-8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Henry County Wildcats' fieldhouse.

    One by one, the Henry County Wildcat seniors took to the track.

    One by one, each of them — and their parents — hugged each other.

    And one by one, they all walked over to Lyndon Johnson — father of their teammate and fellow senior, Connor Johnson — and hugged him, too.

  • A not so happy homecoming

    In their quest to take down the Rockets of Shelby County on homecoming night, the Henry County Wildcats started off strong.
    But turnovers would prove quite costly by the end of the game.

    Henry held the Rockets to four-and-out on their first possession, before marching 76 yards up-field for the first touchdown of the night, a 10-yard scramble by quarterback Dakota Isaacs.

  • Defense shines in Ohio

    Through four games this year, the Eminence High School Warriors’ defense has allowed just 30 points.

    That defense made life a little easier for the Warriors Saturday against Oyler High School in Ohio — a game which quarterback Bradley Foree played with a broken hand.

    It was also a defense that scored nine points for the Warriors and gave Eminence its first shut-out victory of the year, 22-0.

    Oyler was well into Eminence’s side of the field when Justin Mitchell picked off a pass, running it back 81-yards for a touchdown.

  • EHS to go pink in HCHS rematch

    Weeks after going teal for ovarian cancer, the Eminence High School volleyball team will have a Pink Out when they return to their home court Monday night after a two-week stint of road games.

    At that game, the Warriors will get a rematch against the Henry County Ladycats. Last week, the Ladycats dropped the Warriors in two games, 25-17, 25-22.

    By Jonna Spelbring Priester and Willie Peyton

    Entering the 2011 season, Henry County High School Girls’ Golf Coach Kathy Peyton had a new strategy: play more 18-hole tournaments, and fewer nine-hole matches.

    The goal? To better prepare the team for the tournaments at the end of the season.

    Heading into Tuesday’s NCKC tournament and next week’s fifth region tournament, Peyton said the team seemed to be reaching their peak — and at just the right time.

  • Combination of low numbers and...

    To say the 2011 season has been difficult for the Henry County boy’s soccer team would be an understatement.

    “This has been, by far, the worst year for the program,” coach Rob Powars said last week. The team, until a tournament at Carroll County this weekend, was winless. And unlike last year, where the losses were most often by one point or so, this year the gaps have been larger, by margins of five points or more, with the except of a 0-1 loss Saturday to Holmes High School in the Two River Invitational Tournament.

  • EHS, HCHS Rumble in the Jungle

    The cross country season is open, and both Eminence and Henry County High School have participated in area meets.
    Most recently, the Wildcats took part in the Rumble in the Jungle, hosted by North Oldham High School.
