  • Quality of play much better in...

    With a year of varsity play behind them, the Henry County Ladycats have the soccer program headed in the right direction.

    The Ladycats started a junior varsity team from scratch two years ago, transitioned to the varsity level last fall, and are back with more quality players going against a much tougher schedule. With just 17 players listed on the roster, including 15 sophomores, every player fills a key role and is vital to the team’s success as the season progresses.

  • Ladycats look to get back to top...

    Since the program began in 1999, the Henry County volleyball team has more players and more seniors on this year’s roster than any previous season. And Jon Kasten, who has coached all but the first two years, hopes that means an even better season than the impressive 2008 campaign.

  • From the Sideline

    Players to watch

    Erick Butler: The Henry County senior spent most of last season on the sideline with injuries but should be at full strength this season. Two years ago, the linebacker was named to the All-District Team and All-State Honorable Mention. He will be the centerpiece to a can’t-miss-squad this year.

  • Boys struggle with numbers but...

    It has been a tough opening month for Jay Dunavan this season with limited players, but the Henry County High School boys’ soccer coach is looking for his squad to take the next step despite the small turnout.

  • Warriors ready to make history...

    Two seasons after making the switch from a strictly eight-man postseason to the 11-man district-playoffs format played by most Kentucky High School Athletic Association football programs, the Eminence Warriors are ready to make school history by becoming the first team at Eminence to win an actual 11-man playoff game. On paper, it looks doable.

  • Henry cross aiming towards state...

    Minus the few years when he was the Henry County girls’ basketball coach in the early 2000s, Greg Woods has been the head or assistant coach for Henry’s cross-country team each year since 1989. This fall, after taking the program over from Ricky Drawbaugh, Woods is back in the head position for the first time since 2006.

  • Warriors have the right attitude...

    The Eminence cross-country team has the talent, the numbers and the right attitude this fall.

    Head coach Scott McClamroch hopes that translates to the best season since he came on board as the head coach in 2000.

    The Warriors have nine high schoolers listed on their roster, five middle schoolers and three fifth graders. Add into the mix the attitude and a hard-working group of runners, and the ingredients are ripe for a successful year.

  • Golfers aim for a season that...

    The Henry County girls’ golf team has accomplished more than any team at HCHS the last few years — winning conference titles, breaking school records and being unbeaten against schools of similar size. But the one objective that eludes the Ladycats is a top-two finish at the regional tournament to advance to state. They hope to change that this season.

  • New coach and new goals for EHS...

    The Eminence girls’ volleyball team has a majority of the same players from last year — the squad that won just one game and was eliminated in the opening round of the 28th District tournament — but they now have a new coach and new goals, which they hope will lead to a complete turnaround.

  • Looking forward to future...

    Surprisingly, students in the county are already roaming the hallways from class to class. Even more surprisingly, though, is the fact that fall sports have already kicked off and are about to get in full swing.

    I know I say this every year, but I can’t believe it’s that time of the season once again. And this year I mean it more than ever. When I was in school, Aug. 26 always fell on the first week of school — I know that because that’s my birthday. Now, the opening day comes sooner and sooner each August, and before long I think it could reach July.
