  • EHS drops final four

    The Eminence boys’ basketball team dropped its final four regular-season games to enter the postseason with a 5-20 record.

    The Warriors, who played Shelby County in the opening round of the 30th District tournament on Tuesday night past deadline, lost to Bellevue (68-61) last Wednesday, Beth Haven (66-41) on Thursday and Berea (53-35) on Saturday for the 5-20 mark.

    Chris Nethery said his squad did improve throughout the course of the season but they never developed that killer instinct.

  • Cassey Fischer Second Team All-...

    The only athlete from Henry County to be named All-State First Team, Second Team or Third Team during a fall sport in 2009, sophomore Cassey Fischer has been listed on the Second-Team All-State.

  • Wildcats over Warriors, again

    The Henry County boys’ basketball team beat Eminence 49-38 on Saturday night for its second win over its cross-county rival this season and eighth straight dating back to February 2006. But, on a night when Eminence answered most of Henry’s spurts, it wasn’t as easy as the score indicates as the streak was close to being snapped.

  • Henry County track practice...

    Practice starts for the Henry County track team after school this Monday, Feb. 22, followed by a meeting for all athletes and parents inside the high school’s cafeteria.

    The meeting was originally scheduled for last week but was canceled until Monday due to the icy road conditions.

  • Ray Graham: Henry’s...

    A month after Chris Engstrand resigned his position as the Henry County High School head football coach, his replacement has been named.

    Ray Graham, who was the head coach at Harrison County for 25 years and spent the last two seasons as an assistant at Lexington Christian Academy, will lead the program with high expectations. Engstrand resigned on Jan. 11 and Graham was officially named the new coach on Friday at a meeting with next year’s players.

  • Highland Renaissance 24-Hour Race

    The Highland Renaissance site in Eminence will host a 24-hour footrace on March 13-14, starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday and finishing at 9 a.m. on Sunday.

    Due to Daylight Saving’s Time, which falls during the event, the finishing time has been pushed back one hour to get in the total 24 hours.

  • HCHS girls like where they&...

    After beating Grant County 55-42 last Friday night for their fifth consecutive win, Todd Gilley said his Ladycats are right where they need to be with the postseason just days away.

    The Henry County High School girls’ basketball team entered this week with a 13-9 overall record, is scheduled to play at Waggener this Wednesday and at Eminence on Friday, and opens the 31st District tournament against Owen County on Tuesday at 6 p.m. The five-game win streak, capped off by the Gallatin victory, shows that the Ladycats are playing their best ball when it counts the most.

  • EHS girls pick up win No. 2

    Celebrating their second win this basketball season, the Eminence Lady Warriors defeated Covington Latin 46-38 last Friday night.

    The Lady Warriors beat St. Francis on Jan. 28. They were ahead of Evangel Christian two weeks ago but were given a 2-0 forfeit loss when the referees ruled the game was out of control with Eminence leading 50-47 and just 2:12 left in regulation.

    Against Latin in Eminence’s Homecoming on Friday, the Warriors led most of the way and came away with win number two. They are now 2-23 on the season.

  • Snow, go away!!!

    I feel like I’m stuck smack-dab in the middle of the Winter Olympics, and I’m not liking it too much. I swear I went downhill skiing while trying to walk off my front porch; I felt like I was on the bobsled team trying to navigate out of my driveway in my car; and I was on a cross-country ski course while trying to run outside – yes, that was me running through Pleasureville during the storm on Monday and thank you to all those drivers who felt it necessary to honk at me.
