  • Emotional win for the Ladycats

    Emotions were running high on Saturday as the Henry County girls’ basketball team beat Kentucky Country Day 51-39 on Senior Night.

    The three seniors — Kelsey Mings, Brittany Crawford and Kelley Evridge — were recognized individually, along with their parents, before tip-off with plenty of tears and hugs. The emotions left the Ladycats a little flat in the early going, but they eventually shook off the sluggish start to take control and win by 12 points.

  • At least it was to the Saints

    I am shocked, but I’m still a Colts fan. On Sunday while Indianapolis was playing the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl, I was on the edge of my couch cheering for what I thought was a sure win. No doubt.

  • Price picks Pikeville

    Chris Price had a never-ending list of colleges to decide between, but in the end went with an in-state NAIA program that was one of the final schools to join his list.

    Price narrowed his choices down to 10, visited six and eventually pared it down to Pikeville College or the University of Tennessee at Martin. He made his decision with a verbal commitment on Feb. 3 and made it official with a signing at Henry County High School on Feb. 10, the first day of college football’s national signing period.

  • Henry Co. draws Owen

    The boys’ 31st District seeds are now set.

    The annual district meeting between the four schools was pushed up to last Friday because of a three-way tie for the top seed in the tournament. The teams met at around noon for the draw between Henry County, Gallatin County and Owen County — Carroll County was already guaranteed the fourth seed after an 0-6 district mark during the regular season.

  • Shelby Valley, Newport are All...

    In basketball tournaments designed for the smallest 125 schools in Kentucky, Shelby Valley and Newport Central Catholic proved to be the top teams in the All “A” Classic state tournaments last week.

  • Confidence ‘sky high...

    After winning two basketball games last week, the Eminence Warriors have doubled their wins from last season and are showing signs of turning the corner with six games remaining until the postseason.

  • EHS girls celebrate with win

    It clung to their backs. It was big, mean and had sharp teeth. But last Thursday night, the Eminence Lady Warriors shook it off.

    With the 51-26 win over St. Francis, the monkey is now officially off the Warriors' backs. After starting the season at 0-18, it was their first feel-good moment of the year — better late than never. That monkey can now go mess with another squad.

  • Tough stretch gives Cats three...

    Finishing a tough three-game stretch with losses to Shelby County and North Oldham last week, the Henry County boys’ basketball team has now dropped three straight and are an even 11-11 overall heading into the final month of the season.

  • First victory for Lady Warriors

    Earning their fist basketball win of the season in dominating fashion, the Eminence Lady Warriors went up early and never looked back in a 51-26 outing over visiting St. Fancis last Thursday night.

  • Henry girls over Trimble in...

    The Henry County girls’ basketball team evened up its overall record at 9-9 with a 51-50 win over Trimble County last Thursday night, but it took an overtime to get the job done.

    The Ladycats built a 12-point lead in the first half but Trimble clawed its way back into the game and tied the score with 15 seconds left in regulation on a 3-pointer. Henry then outscored Trimble 7-6 in the overtime period to come away with the slim one-point victory.
