  • Ladycats hold off Spencer County

    In their only game on the volleyball court last week, the Henry County Ladycats used a couple of surges to hold off Spencer County in the first game then easily won the second to win the best-of-three series, 25-20, 25-13.

    The Ladycats improved to 6-4 overall with two games this week — Tuesday at Gallatin County and Thursday at Walton-Verona — and a home match against cross-county rival Eminence next Monday starting at 6:30 p.m.

  • Warriors remember Coach D

    Before the Eminence football players loaded the bus to travel to play Kentucky Country Day, they ate a pre-game meal at Hometown Pizza with assistant coach Paul McDowell and made a stop by the Eminence Cemetery to visit the resting place of former assistant coach Dewayne Douglas.

  • Lightning cancels boys&rsquo...

    Trailing 3-1 at the half, Henry County’s hopes of winning its first boys’ soccer game of the season were dashed away when the contest against Gallatin County was called off due to lightning spotted in the area.

    Henry was hoping to win its first game of 2009 against a squad that played junior varsity last year and moved up to varsity this fall, but was denied due to a poor showing in the first half and the weather. The game will either go in the record books as a no-contest or a 3-1 win for Gallatin.

  • Loss will help EHS squad, coach...

    The Eminence volleyball squad was at home for the first time this season last Monday night, but there was a tough team standing on the other side of the court.

    Bullitt Central started out strong, continued to apply the pressure and left Eminence with a convincing 2-0 win in the best-of-three series. The Lady Cougars, led by a strong hitting attack, are definitely the best team Eminence has seen so far, head coach Stephanie Meadows said afterwards. She hopes it will improve her team’s play against other opponents.

  • Cats 2nd at tourney

    Playing against one of the strongest fields assembled this golf season, the Henry County girls’ team shot a 356 and finished runners-up in the Bullitt East Tournament at the Tanglewood Golf Course on Saturday.

    Ally Vaughn made the top-10 list on the leader board with a solid 85 for 18 holes, was named to the All-Tournament Team, and combined with her teammates to finish just three strokes behind Notre Dame‘s 353.

  • Henry Co. guts out another win

    Overcoming a lightning delay, a potential momentum shift and an out-of-sync offense, the Henry County Wildcats slayed the Dragons last Friday night with a 13-0 win over South Oldham for a 2-0 start to the season.

  • 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.
