  • Warriors soar over Hawks, now 3-0

    The Eminence Warriors made it three in a row on the road Thursday night with a 44-6 victory over Riverview East Academy of Cincinnati. The Warriors opened up a 14-0 lead on the Hawks and never looked back on their way to a 3-0 record.

    Brandon Mitchell got the Warriors started early in the first quarter when he intercepted a Riverview pass and returned it for a 31-yard touchdown. DeMarcus Bailey ran three yards for the 2-point conversion to make it 8-0.

    Later in the quarter Bradley Foree scored on a 12-yard run but the conversion failed and the Warriors led 14-0.

  • Panthers down Wildcats

    In a rematch of a game that took place just 10 days before the score came out nearly the same as the Carroll County Panthers defeated the Henry County Wildcats 7-1 in boys’ soccer action.

    But Coach Bobby Jameson felt that he got a much better performance from his team in circumstances that were less than ideal. The Wildcats had three yellow cards very early in the game, which hampered their ability to play physical soccer. The Panthers were awarded a penalty kick just 1:30 into the game, which, they converted, for a 1-0 lead.

  • Wildcat clawed by Bearcats 2-0

    The Walton-Verona buzz saw struck again, this time setting the Henry County Lady Cats in its sights.

    On Aug. 29, Henry County hosted the Lady Bearcats, who were on a 2-0 tear after falling to Trimble County in the All A Classic. After that loss, Walton ripped through Carroll and Gallatin Counties before heading to New Castle.

  • 'Jackets sting Cats

    With 61 players on their roster, the Woodford County Yellowjackets are deep.
    That depth, plus size and speed, hurt the already injured Cats as they travelled to Versailles Friday and came up short against the 5A Yellowjackets, 44-6.
    The 5A Yellowjackets proved to be too deep and athletic for the Wildcats.

  • Still smarting from Calss A loss...

    The Eminence Warriors volleyball team appeared to be a step slow, possibly still smarting from their Class A tournament defeat to Walton, as they hosted the Carroll County Lady Panthers on Aug. 27.

    The Warriors lost the match 3-1 and fell to 2-1 in district play.

    The opening game started with a missed serve by the Warriors and they never fully recovered. Although the game was close in the early stages, the Warriors could not put a run together.

  • Short on depth, Lady Cats drop...

    Short on depth already, the Henry County Lady Cats soccer team had even less to play with as nagging injuries shortened the roster even further for the young team.

    “We are getting better as a team but we’re young and the inexperience is showing,” Coach Brandie Stivers said. “The injuries are hurting us the most however.”

    Without the services of midfielder Izzy Miller, the Lady Cats fell 3-0 to Carroll County.

  • Cross Country Cats compete in...

    A young Henry County Cross Country squad opened its season Saturday against some of the area’s top teams.

    The Cross Country Cats competed in its first meet of the season when they traveled to Shelbyville to run in the Shelby County Invitational, which included regional powers South Oldham, North Oldham and Collins.

    Meade County won the boys’ race with a very impressive score of 43 points. Louisville Butler was second with 81 points and South Oldham was third with 83 points.

  • Boys golf lose to Shelby
