  • Ladycats vs. Lady Warriors

    For the 10th straight time, the Henry County girls’ basketball team defeated its cross-county rival Eminence. For the first time, it came in the season opener.

    Playing at Roy L. Winchester Gym in the first game of the 2009-10 season for both schools last Thursday night, the Ladycats jumped out to an early lead and stretched it to 67-13 by the time the final horn sounded. It was Henry’s 10th consecutive win over Eminence, dating back to January 2005.

  • Warriors 0-2 in first week

    After the Eminence Warriors dropped basketball games to Gallatin County and Heritage Academy in the opening week, second-year coach Chris Nethery said the one area his squad is lacking is consistent hard work.

  • Ultra distance race March 13-14...

    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 8 a.m. on Sunday.

  • Warriors say bye, again

    Less than one year after the sudden death of Dewayne Douglas, another assistant football coach at Eminence High School has passed away. Off the field, it’s been a tough year for these Warriors.

    Don Daniels, a former head coach and high school principal who has been with the EHS football program the previous eight years, died last Thursday. His funeral was Monday in Louisville and, fittingly, he was laid to rest in a cemetery next to Male High School’s practice football field. Coach Daniels was 72.

  • Paducah Tilghman wins 3A

    In a game the Henry County High School football players wanted so badly to play in, Paducah Tilghman defeated Somerset 21-0 on Saturday to win the Class 3-A state football playoffs.

    Henry was 8-2 during the regular season and a perfect 3-0 in District Four play to win the district and earn home field advantage through the first two rounds of the playoffs.

  • From the Sideline

    PLAYERS TO WATCH

    Connor Jeffries: The Henry County High School senior will be the number one option for the Wildcats during the 2009-10 campaign. HCHS coach Derek Springate said Connor Jeffries has great scoring ability and can take over a game at any time. He can pull up at three-point range, drive to the basket or play down low, providing tough matchup problems for opponents. He will spend a majority of his time running the point or on the wing.

  • A look at the upcoming EHS girls...

    The Eminence Lady Warriors have no seniors, two starters chose not to return to the basketball court this season and just nine players are listed on the roster. But head coach Carter Martin said his team is ahead of where it has been at this point in previous years.

    Returning for his fourth season since taking over the program from Corey Scriber for the 2006-07 season, Martin wants this year to mark a turning point for his squad. The Warriors were 1-24 three years ago, 3-23 two years ago and 3-22 last year for a combined 7-69 record during Martin’s tenure.

  • A look at the upcoming HCHS boys...

    When Derek Springate officially started his basketball tenure at Henry County High School on Tuesday night, the first-year head coach was just hoping his players were on the same page.

  • The 2009-10 season tips off this...

    Christian Laettner reminds me each year that basketball season is here. It never fails.

    Each November I get fired up because the NBA is in full swing and men’s college basketball is just beginning. So I make a trip to the basement to paw my way through dozens of old basketball tapes to spike my excitement.

    Of course I have to watch the 1996 Kentucky team win the national title. I have to watch an old game of Michael Jordan playing for the Bulls. And I have to watch, gulp, that Kentucky-Duke game from 1992. I can’t help it!

  • A look at the upcoming EHS boys...

    Playing more games during the off-season than ever before and growing physically, the Eminence boys’ basketball team has matured from the final game in February to this week’s season opener.

    In his second season as the head coach after taking over the program from Keith Blackburn, Chris Nethery has been very pleased with his team’s progression. The Warriors, who never before played a full summer schedule, played around 35 games during the summer and a majority of the players added around 15 more games with AAU basketball.
