  • Back in the saddle

     

     

    It’s been awhile since I wrote a column. Two months to be exact.

    It’s not because I have run out of opinions. That’ll never happen.

    It’s not because I’ve run out of embarrassing stories to tell on myself. Unfortunately that’ll never happen either.

  • Turnovers doom Warriors in 70-14...

    For 1.5 quarters the Eminence Warriors hung tough against the highly regarded Frankfort Panthers on Friday.

    But a late second quarter scoring spree by Frankfort doomed to the Warriors to their worst defeat of the season. The final score was 70-14.

    But with 2:43 left in the 2nd quarter Eminence trailed by 8 points at 22-14.

    A series of turnovers allowed the Panthers to score 27 points in just 2:42 and at halftime, what had been a competitive game became a rout as Frankfort went into the locker room leading 49-14.

  • Jeffries earns American FFA...

    Shayna Jeffries couldn’t imagine not living on a farm.

    From her rural upbringing and officer positions in FFA, Jeffries, a once shy student, stands confidently with only a handful of Henry Countians who have earned the American FFA Degree.

    Jeffries started showing cattle at 9. She now owns 28 heads of Angus and Gelviah cattle on her family’s farm off of Fallen Timber Road. Jeffries was a cheerleader until her junior year at Henry County High School and decided to quit and do something different.

  • It's deja vu all over again...

     

    It was déjà vu all over again for the Lady Cats.

    In the first round of the 31st District soccer tournament, Henry County’s girls’ soccer team beat Carroll County on penalty kicks, a performance nearly identical to an early season match-up between the two.

    Then, last week, it happened again against Owen County.

    The Lady Rebels once again came from behind to defeat the Lady Cats 3-2 in double overtime with just 3:00 remaining before a penalty kick shootout would have decided the game.

  • Lady Cats earn regional berth

    The Henry County Lady Cats volleyball team shook off a season ending losing streak to play some of their best volleyball of the season downing the Owen County Lady Rebels 3-1 last week in the 31st District tournament at Carroll County.

    That set up a tournament championship match against the tournament hosts. But the Lady Panthers would not be denied the tournament championship, and bested the Lady Cats 3-0, in closely contested games.
