    In a see-saw three games that had long volleys, intense moments and an emotional finish, the Henry County volleyball team ended its season Monday night against Anderson County in the opening round of the 28th District tournament.

    Playing inside Eminence’s gym, both teams were on fire for much of the match. In the end, though, Anderson moved on to the district finals Tuesday night and the 8th Region tournament next week while Henry ended its season with an 18-6 overall record.

    The Eminence Middle School Braves finished their 2009 football season at 6-1 with big highlights of tying for first place in District Four and beating a tough Frankfort team mid-season.

Western Hills is No. 10 with a 76.8 ranking, Henry is No. 11 at 73.8, Spencer County is No. 12 at 72.2 and North Oldham is No. 13 at 72.0.

  • Role model for teens

    While scrolling down my Facebook page last Saturday night, I came across a post from one of my friends inviting everyone to come out to Franklinton Baptist Church the following morning to hear a guest speaker talk about teen culture. Thanks to my new addiction (Facebook) and Melissa Blankenship’s post, that’s exactly where I was 12 hours later.

  • Eminence edges Gallatin, 12-6

    Brad Tapia caught a pass from Dre Banta in the back of the end zone, then the Eminence Warriors held Gallatin County from scoring on four tries in a wild finish that gave Eminence a 12-6 overtime victory, a 4-2 overall record and a perfect 2-0 start in district play.

  • The fifth class inducted to the...

    The Eminence High School Hall of Fame got six new members over the weekend when the fifth class was recognized at halftime of Eminence’s football game Friday night and officially inducted Saturday with a ceremony inside the high school’s cafeteria.

    Joining the first four classes were Ed Berry, Sr., Bill Brammell, Dewayne Douglas, Kent Floyd, William Leslie Land and Jim McAlister. The Hall of Fame is not just for athletes, but for those that contributed the most to make EHS what it is today, Eminence principal Steve Frommeyer said.

  • Cassey Fischer, Eric Phillips...

    Racing quantity and quality, the Henry County cross country team toed the starting line against the top area runners at the Greater Louisville Classic at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park in Louisville on Saturday and finished with some impressive results.

    The meet was packed with four college races, four high school races and two middle school races, which made it the largest college cross country meet ever held in the South.

  • HC girls drop soccer games at...

    With the 16th District Tournament starting Monday night, the Henry County girls’ soccer team dropped games to Scott County and Spencer County last week, and close out the regular season with games at Owen County and George Rogers Clark. The Ladycats entered this week with a 0-9-2 record.

    Despite the Scott and Spencer losses, head coach Shannon Snider was still impressed with how his team performed. It is just Henry’s second year having a soccer program and the tough schedule is not an easy one.

  • It’s Ladycats over...

    The Eminence Lady Warriors played well in spurts against their visiting cross-county rival last Wednesday night, but Henry County came away with 25-8 and 25-15 wins to end the best-of-three series and sweep the Warriors during the regular season.

    The Ladycats, who improved their overall record to 15-5 entering this week, were never seriously challenged in the first game but faced a much-determined Eminence squad in game two. Henry took the lead for good after breaking open a 9-9 tie. The second game was full of long volleys and hard hits in an intense atmosphere.
