  • It’s an 0-3 start for...

    It is another 0-3 start for the Eminence volleyball squad, but new coach Stephanie Meadows says it’s a big improvement from previous seasons with her team putting up a bigger fight and hanging much closer to its opponents.

    The Lady Warriors lost to Gallatin County on Aug. 10, Owen County on Aug. 11 and Spencer County on Aug. 19 — all three matches were 2-0 in the best-of-three series. The one area Eminence needs to improve in is confidence, which was evident in its up-and-down play during the opening two weeks.

  • What are our limits?

    After watching Usain Bolt of Jamaica vaporize the world records for the 100- and 200-meter sprints at the World Track and Field Championships in Berlin last week, I threw my hands in the air and said no more. There’s no way a human can run faster than those times. Or, I thought after a pause, is there?

  • NCKC five-year run is over for...

    For the first time in a long time, the Henry County girls’ golf team was not at the top of the leader board.

  • Cats win opener

    After starting out of sync in their opening snaps, the Henry County Wildcats found their rhythm during the second half to erase an early deficit and come away with a 20-6 win over Pike County Central in the first week of the high school football season.

  • Ladycats need to be more...

    The players on this year’s Henry County volleyball team have the talent. They have the experience. And they have the parts in place. But the one area they are lacking through the first two weeks is aggression, coach Jon Kasten said after his team’s 2-1 start.

  • HCYFL

    Eastern 54, Trimble 0: In the varsity division of the Henry County Youth Football League, the Eastern Colts opened the season with a 54-0 win over the Trimble County Raiders on Saturday.

    Jacob Watson scored first with a 34-yard touchdown run, and followed with another touchdown when he picked up a fumble and returned it 22 yards. The Colts scored two extra points on a pass from Conner Smith to Nick James after the second touchdown. Smith then ran in a quarterback sneak late in the first quarter, and the extra points pass from Smith to Johnathon Suter was complete.

  • Cheerleaders from EMS might...

    If they can raise $16,000 for the trip, the Eminence Middle School cheerleaders will be performing at the Capital One Bowl in front of thousands of cheering fans on Jan. 1.

  • Warriors face adversity in big...

    It was a tough weekend for the Warriors, but they had no problem on the field as they came away with a big 58-22 win over South Floyd in their opener Saturday night.

  • Coach pleased with first soccer...

    They weren’t on the winning side last Tuesday night, and they ran out of gas in the final minutes, but coach Jay Dunavan said he was very impressed with his Henry County Wildcats in their first soccer game of 2009.

  • Quality of play much better in...

    With a year of varsity play behind them, the Henry County Ladycats have the soccer program headed in the right direction.

    The Ladycats started a junior varsity team from scratch two years ago, transitioned to the varsity level last fall, and are back with more quality players going against a much tougher schedule. With just 17 players listed on the roster, including 15 sophomores, every player fills a key role and is vital to the team’s success as the season progresses.
