  • Lady Cats compete in Raceland...

    The Henry County Lady Cats found themselves in a huge hole to start the game against the host Raceland Lady Rams on Thursday night in the first round of the Ohio River Classic, but came back to get a hard-fought 40-38 win to advance to the semifinals of the winner’s bracket on Friday against Russell.

    “We looked like we hadn’t practiced in two days and then got on a bus and rode three hours,” said Coach Todd Gilley. “We had more turnovers than shot attempts in the first quarter. At one point in the second period we were down 15.”

  • Warriors get first win vs. Brown

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team won their first game of the season Friday against the Brown Lady Bears in the second round of the Beth Haven Holiday Classic.

    The Warriors overcame a short bench due the absence of three players for various reasons and pulled out a two-point victory, 30-28.

    The Warriors sealed the win when Emily Ethington hit two free throws with five seconds to go give the Warriors the lead. Brown could not answer those free throws in the final seconds and the Warriors’ young team celebrated a victory.
