  • Bethlehem hands EHS first loss

    Heading into the second half on Friday night in Bardstown, the Eminence Warriors were determined not to let the football game against Bethlehem get out of control as they were trailing 33-6 at the break. It didn’t.

    Neither school reached the end zone during the final two quarters with the Bethlehem Eagles hanging on to their 33-6 advantage until the final horn sounded. While EHS coach Steve Frommeyer was not happy with the final score, he was pleased that his squad was able to progress throughout the game.

  • Dyer wins Men’s...

    The scores were not as low as last season but they were just as close at the Henry County Country Club Men’s Invitation on Aug. 22-23.

    Rusty Dyer shot a 2-over-par 146 for 36 holes, just one stroke better than Jim Richardson at 147 and three strokes better than Brad Gross at 149. Scotty King was fourth at 151 and Vincent Vaughn was fifth at 153. Vaughn won last year’s tournament with a 135.

    “We tried to make it tougher this year with pin placements and the layout,” Golf Pro Neil Uhl said, after pointing out the 11-stroke difference.

  • Henry County Youth Football...

    New Castle 32, Eastern 6: Ethan Tuggle scored four touchdowns and the New Castle Chiefs defeated the Eastern Colts, 32-6,  in the varsity division of the Henry County Youth Football League.

    Tuggle ran the opening kickoff back 60 yards for the game’s first touchdown to give the Chiefs the early lead. The Colts answered when Jacob Watson scored on a 50-yard run to tie the game at 6, which held for the rest of the first quarter.

  • HCHS golfers third at North...

    The Henry County boys’ golf team did not equal last year’s surprising second-place finish at the North Central Kentucky Conference Championship, but head coach Steve Dent said he was pleased with the Wildcats’ third-place outing after he saw the results.

    Dent missed the tournament held at Fairway Golf Course in Owen County last Saturday, which left Greg Woods to fill in. Woods is the head coach for the Henry cross-country team, is certified to be a high school coach and agreed to take the team to Owen to go against the conference schools.

  • Ladycats get tested with busy...

    Following the first two weeks of the season, Jon Kasten said the Henry County volleyball team had the talent but the one area his players needed to improve in was their aggressiveness. After playing seven games during a three-day stretch, he no longer feels that way.

  • It’s an 0-3 start for...

    It is another 0-3 start for the Eminence volleyball squad, but new coach Stephanie Meadows says it’s a big improvement from previous seasons with her team putting up a bigger fight and hanging much closer to its opponents.

    The Lady Warriors lost to Gallatin County on Aug. 10, Owen County on Aug. 11 and Spencer County on Aug. 19 — all three matches were 2-0 in the best-of-three series. The one area Eminence needs to improve in is confidence, which was evident in its up-and-down play during the opening two weeks.

  • What are our limits?

    After watching Usain Bolt of Jamaica vaporize the world records for the 100- and 200-meter sprints at the World Track and Field Championships in Berlin last week, I threw my hands in the air and said no more. There’s no way a human can run faster than those times. Or, I thought after a pause, is there?

  • NCKC five-year run is over for...

    For the first time in a long time, the Henry County girls’ golf team was not at the top of the leader board.

  • Cats win opener

    After starting out of sync in their opening snaps, the Henry County Wildcats found their rhythm during the second half to erase an early deficit and come away with a 20-6 win over Pike County Central in the first week of the high school football season.

  • Ladycats need to be more...

    The players on this year’s Henry County volleyball team have the talent. They have the experience. And they have the parts in place. But the one area they are lacking through the first two weeks is aggression, coach Jon Kasten said after his team’s 2-1 start.
