    In Henry County’s season opener Saturday afternoon, Brittany Crawford and Travis Farmer both earned third-place finishers at the Mason-Dixon Games — which also served as the Kentucky Indoor State Track and Field Championships — and the Henry girls finished 16th in the team standings while the boys finished 22nd.

    After the 31st District tournament last week, I’ll have to give the Henry County Wildcats a thanks for doing what they do best: keeping fans on the edge of their seats and this reporter exhaling at the end of games. They truly are the Cardiac Cats, which is a title no team has been more deserving to have.

    I haven’t been able to exercise much this winter due to a few nagging injuries but the Wildcats have kept my heart rate at an all-time high. Don’t believe me? Go watch Henry play in the 8th Region tournament this week and you will see what I mean.

    The Eminence boys’ basketball team came out of the gates running and gunning against host Henry County in the final match-up between the two squads this season, but the Warriors ran out of steam as they watched a 10-2 lead dwindle and turn into a 66-46 loss.

    When the horn sounded to end the game between Eminence and visiting Cornerstone Christian on Feb. 12, the Eminence players — despite being exhausted from the hard-fought contest between two of the smaller schools in Kentucky — jumped for joy and gave high fives.

    After a slow start for the the Henry County Ladycats and a much-improved start for the Eminence Lady Warriors, the host Cats pulled away during the second quarter and built their lead to 54-12 before the final horn sounded.

    It was the Ladycats’ ninth straight win over their cross-county rivals, including a 63-6 win on Jan. 23. The Valentine’s Day victory also gave them their first 10-win season since the 2003-04 school year.

    On the final day of the year, the Ladycats almost ended 2008 with a bang but instead had to settle with second-place honors in the Madison Southern Holiday Classic after defeating Lone Oak, Madison Southern and Pineville, then losing to Grayson County in the finals on New Year’s Eve.
