  • Owen slips by Warriors, 62-60


    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Owen County Rebels Dec. 28 in an important district seeding game and came away on the short end of a hard-fought game.

  • Fighting for the three seed

    As we start the New Year the girls’ 31st district seeding picture is coming into focus... sort of.

    Gallatin County and Owen County both sit at 3-0. They have to play each other twice before we can determine who will be the top seed and who will be the second seed. It would take a collapse by one of these teams or a great second half of the season for one of the other three teams to keep these teams from that.

  • EHS girls defeat Frederick...


    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Frederick Fraize Lady Aces Dec. 20 and used deadly 3-point shooting and strong inside play from Madison Dockter to pull away early and cruise to their second consecutive win.

    The Lady Aces scored the first two points of the game just 27 seconds in before the Warriors ripped off 15 straight points to take command of the game. The Warriors hit three 3-pointers in that opening run as Mia Gonzalez, Kenya Vargas and Emilie Ethington all found the bottom of the net from long range.
