  • HCHS sets personal records,...

    The Henry County Cross Country team competed at the Titan Cross Country Classic on Saturday and found the course to their liking as several runners had personal records or season best times.

This week he lowered his personal record by 5 seconds to 19:59. Freshmen Josh Logsdon and Cameron Morgan, and 8th grader Brandon Handley all lowered their personal records significantly.

  • EHS wins second round against...

    When the Eminence and Henry County volleyball teams met on Sept. 11, Henry County came out on top in a close 3-1 match.

    But on Sept. 27, the Warriors came out on top, on their home court, 3-0.

    And this time, it wasn’t quite as close.

    The first game of the match was a nail-biter that Eminence won 26-24.

    The game was well played, with the widest margin coming at a 12-8 Eminence lead. Henry County Coach Katie Ruff called timeout, which sparked a Lady Cats’ 8-1 run, where they took the lead 16-13.

  • Eminence rips Trimble 40-6

    After a big road win at Berea, the Eminence Warriors returned to their home field.

    Once home, they thrashed the Trimble County Raiders.

    The Warriors now stand at 5-1 on the season heading into district play.

    Offensively, the game started slowly for the Warriors despite good field position. After Daishon Moore recovered a Raider fumble on their opening series at the Raider 37-yard line, the Warriors were in business.

  • Cats conquer Archives

    The Archives Course in Frankfort was the site of the 29th annual Capitol View Classic and the Henry County cross country team competed there for the first time in several years.
    Many runners and coaches consider it one of the toughest courses in the state with long up hill runs and steep down hills. In fact the information packet sent out by organizers call it the infamous Archives course. Most runners don’t go there expecting to set personal records-they just want to survive it.

    Only Hensley did it by making the cut as an individual.
