    Sports editor

    In their first win over a team other than Evangel Christian since October 2005, the Eminence Lady Warriors defeated Southern High School, 2-1, in the Carroll County Invitational on Saturday to improve their volleyball record to 2-14 this season.

  • Lady Warriors are back on track...

    Coming off a disappointing outing against Henry County the night before, the Eminence volleyball team got back on track last Tuesday, despite a 2-0 loss to Spencer County.

    The Lady Warriors lost the first game 25-11, then lost the second one 25-19 to end the best-of-three series. It was an improvement from the night before when they lost to Henry, 25-14, 25-15.

  • Choosing a column

    While tapping my fingers against my desk on Monday afternoons to the annoyance of my coworkers, I usually stare at a blank screen with nothing coming to mind. There are voices in there, sure, but the problem is filtering out the ones that have anything meaningful to say. Picking the right topic for a column can be tricky at times.

  • It’s back to 8-man...

    Playing their first home football game of 2009, their first 8-man game and on their homecoming night, the Eminence Warriors came up with a big 54-36 win over North Hardin Christian.

    Friday night’s showdown was close in the early portions of the contest — Eminence was ahead 16-14 after the first quarter and 24-22 at the half — before the Warriors started to pull away in the third quarter. The Warriors are now 3-2 on the season and start district play this Friday night at Bracken County.

  • Henry County Youth Football...

    Campbellsburg  27, Eastern 8: The Campbellsburg Bengals defeated the Eastern Colts, 27-8, in the varsity division of the Henry County Youth Football League on Saturday.

  • Cats take first loss of season

    Friday night’s showdown between Henry County and visiting Anderson County left one team perfect and gave the other its first loss.

    The Henry Wildcats scored on their opening drive, then gave up 42 unanswered points as Anderson left New Castle with a 42-7 win and an undefeated 4-0 record through five weeks. Henry is 4-1.

  • Boys’ golf team...

    With three more wins tacked on to its record last week, the Henry County boys’ golf team continues to surprise its coach and surpass expectations.

    The Wildcats defeated Carroll County at the Henry County Country Club last Monday, 174-229, held off Gallatin County by just one stroke on Tuesday, 172-173, and received a forfeit win over Louisville Collegiate on Thursday when that squad could not field a full four-person team. Coach Steve Dent said he was impressed with his players last week, as he has been the two weeks leading up.

  • HC Ladycats aim toward regional...

    Kathy Peyton hopes she has her team primed for a top-two regional tournament performance, which would qualify the Henry County Ladcyats for the state golf tournament for the first time in school history. The Cats, who finished tied for third last September, will get that chance this Monday when they travel to the Midland Trail Golf Course in Louisville.

  • Henry County Youth Football...

    Eastern 30, Eminence 14: The Eastern Colts defeated the Eminence Redskins 30-14 on Saturday in the varsity division of the Henry County Youth Football League.

    On the opening drive, the Redskins’ Austin Perry scored and the pass conversion was complete from Mitchell Metton to Jake McKenley.

    The Colts’ Johnathon Suter scored first for his team on a 15-yard pass play from Dylan Mayer. The points-after attempt from Mayer to Suter was good to tie the game.
