  • Role model for teens

    While scrolling down my Facebook page last Saturday night, I came across a post from one of my friends inviting everyone to come out to Franklinton Baptist Church the following morning to hear a guest speaker talk about teen culture. Thanks to my new addiction (Facebook) and Melissa Blankenship’s post, that’s exactly where I was 12 hours later.

  • Eminence edges Gallatin, 12-6

    Brad Tapia caught a pass from Dre Banta in the back of the end zone, then the Eminence Warriors held Gallatin County from scoring on four tries in a wild finish that gave Eminence a 12-6 overtime victory, a 4-2 overall record and a perfect 2-0 start in district play.

  • The fifth class inducted to the...

    The Eminence High School Hall of Fame got six new members over the weekend when the fifth class was recognized at halftime of Eminence’s football game Friday night and officially inducted Saturday with a ceremony inside the high school’s cafeteria.

    Joining the first four classes were Ed Berry, Sr., Bill Brammell, Dewayne Douglas, Kent Floyd, William Leslie Land and Jim McAlister. The Hall of Fame is not just for athletes, but for those that contributed the most to make EHS what it is today, Eminence principal Steve Frommeyer said.

  • Cassey Fischer, Eric Phillips...

    Racing quantity and quality, the Henry County cross country team toed the starting line against the top area runners at the Greater Louisville Classic at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park in Louisville on Saturday and finished with some impressive results.

    The meet was packed with four college races, four high school races and two middle school races, which made it the largest college cross country meet ever held in the South.

  • HC girls drop soccer games at...

    With the 16th District Tournament starting Monday night, the Henry County girls’ soccer team dropped games to Scott County and Spencer County last week, and close out the regular season with games at Owen County and George Rogers Clark. The Ladycats entered this week with a 0-9-2 record.

    Despite the Scott and Spencer losses, head coach Shannon Snider was still impressed with how his team performed. It is just Henry’s second year having a soccer program and the tough schedule is not an easy one.

  • It’s Ladycats over...

    The Eminence Lady Warriors played well in spurts against their visiting cross-county rival last Wednesday night, but Henry County came away with 25-8 and 25-15 wins to end the best-of-three series and sweep the Warriors during the regular season.

    The Ladycats, who improved their overall record to 15-5 entering this week, were never seriously challenged in the first game but faced a much-determined Eminence squad in game two. Henry took the lead for good after breaking open a 9-9 tie. The second game was full of long volleys and hard hits in an intense atmosphere.

  • Results, stats from Saturday...

    New Castle 37, Eastern 0: The New Castle Chiefs defeated the Eastern Colts, 37-0, on Saturday in the varsity division of the Henry County Youth Football League.

    During the first quarter, Nick Riggins came up with a fumble recovery; Gavin Jameson scored on a 52-year run and the 2-point conversion was a pass from Cameron Sanders to Jameson; and Isaiah Raisor had a fumble recovery. During the second quarter, Ethan Tuggle scored on a 45-yard run and Andrew Mahoney had a kick recovery to put the Chiefs ahead 14-0 at the half.

  • Henry is 16th at Sixth Region...

    Capping off an impressive 2009 season that saw the Wildcats finish with strong performances down the final stretch, Henry County High School finished 16th at the Sixth Region golf tournament last Tuesday on a cold and windy day.

    The top two teams advanced to the state tournament, along with the top three individuals not on a qualifying team. Henry’s top four golfers finished with a 406, which placed them ahead of Jeffersontown at 417, Waggener at 417 and Moore at 578.

  • Ladycats are Carroll champs

    In a confusing one-day tournament held on Saturday which was supposed to guarantee each team at least three matches, the Henry County volleyball team played just two matches, defeating both Trimble County and host Carroll County to win the Carroll County Invitational championship.

  • HC Wildcats play their best half...

    Sports editor

    It was the best half of soccer the Henry County boys’ team has played this season, but they still took a 4-1 loss to Spencer County last Monday night to drop to 0-6 with just one game remaining on their schedule.
