  • Injuries hampering the Lady...

    On the verge of its first win this season, the Eminence girls’ basketball team is running out of time.

    The Lady Warriors, who have no seniors and had to move up middle school players to the varsity level due to injuries, are 0-17 with 10 games remaining in the regular season. Last week, the Warriors lost to powerhouse Anderson County 80-14 on Tuesday and narrowly missed that first win in a 38-31 outing against Silver Grove on Saturday. Both games were on the road.

  • Ladycats fourth seed in district

    Following Henry County’s 41-32 loss to Gallatin County Saturday night, postseason seeds for the girls’ 31st District are set.

    Owen County (11-7 overall, 4-2 district) has secured the first seed and will play Henry (8-9, 2-4) as the fourth seed. Carroll County (11-9, 3-3) plays Gallatin County (10-7, 3-3) in the other opening-round contest. The top two teams in the district tourney next month  will advance to the 8th Region tournament.

  • Warriors are knocked out of 8th...

    The Eminence Warriors got a glimpse of their future last Tuesday night.

    Playing against Williamstown in the opening round of the 8th Region All “A” Classic, the Warriors lost 45-36. Eventually, this is the focal point coach Chris Nethery wants with his team contending for the regional crown within the next few years. All “A” is for the smallest 125 schools in Kentucky.

  • Highland Renaissance 24-Hour Race

    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 9 a.m. on Sunday. Due to Daylight Saving's Time, which falls during the event, the finishing time has been pushed back one hour to get in the total 24 hours.

  • Engstrand resigns

    It was a tough decision for Chris Engstrand, but one he felt he had to make. On Jan. 11, he made it official.

  • Classy end for a coach who will...

    I will say there’s very few people — if any — happy that Chris Engstrand has decided to leave the Henry County High School football program, but nobody can blame him. How can they?

    Engstrand’s official decision to leave came on Jan. 11 with a letter of resignation to HCHS Athletics Director Todd Gilley. His wife, Jaime, lost her father in November and they decided to move closer to her mother in Larue County. Like he has preached to his players during the last four seasons, family is a first priority.

  • It’s second win for...

    The Eminence Warriors put their second check in the win column in dominating fashion Saturday night, jumping out to a big early lead and winning 88-51 over Riverside Christian.

    The Warriors started the basketball game on a 13-0 run, led 33-10 after the first quarter, 56-24 at the half and cruised in for the unchallenged 37-point victory. Eminence coach Chris Nethery said the teams decided to play with a running clock during the final two quarters to speed up the game and prevent injuries. Besides timeouts, the clock continuously ticked down the final 16 minutes.

  • 31st District knotted up in 3-...

    With Henry County’s 59-44 win over Gallatin County Saturday afternoon, the boys’ 31st District is now in a three-way tie for the top spot in next month’s district tournament.

  • Wildcats pull away after close...

    It took more than 25 minutes for the Henry County Wildcats to outlast their cross-county rivals Eminence, then they put it in overdrive.

    On paper, host Henry was big favorites over Eminence in the first clash of the two high schools this boys’ basketball season. But the first three quarters featured an Eminence team that would not back down. The Warriors jumped out to an early 12-5 lead, were in front 14-10 after the first quarter and led for much of the first half last Thursday night inside Roy L. Winchester Gym.

  • Highland Renaissance 24-Hour Race

    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.
