  • Cats open season at Carroll...

    The Henry County Wildcats track team opened their season at an all-comers meet Tuesday, March 13.

    “We have 30-some new kids, so there are really no expectations this early in the season,” he said. “We’ve put in the hard work but have a lot more to do.”

  • Warriors face, overcome obstacles

    An anonymous quote declares that “adversity doesn’t build character, it reveals it.”

    The Eminence High School basketball teams reflected the sentiment this season, as both the boys and the girls faced very different kinds of adversity.

    “It’s just amazing, and our kids learned this lesson, how one negative can impact your whole year,” EHS boys coach Chris Nethery said, declining to specify exactly what that negative was.

  • A look back at a ‘Heartlarge’...

    I’ve been away from the high school basketball scene for a while, and I have to say that I discovered this year that you can never fully get the basketball bug out of your blood.

    After coaching the sport for many years, I suffered a little from burnout and completely got away from the sport that I’ve loved since I was a little kid.
