    For a game that was hyped to be a county showdown between undefeated Eminence and a Henry County squad coming off its first loss of the season, Henry wasted no time in putting the Warriors away as the Wildcats scored less than a minute into the contest and never looked back.

    The fourth class of the Eminence High School Hall of Fame will be honored this weekend, which includes two current EHS football coaches, two former superintendents, a librarian, a school board member, a golfer, and a former teacher and coach. The inductees will officially join the first three classes with a dinner this Saturday night inside the high school’s cafeteria at 7 o’clock. Also, they will be recognized during halftime of Eminence’s football game against Evangel Christian the night before.

    Eminence’s volleyball team closed out its regular season Monday night and will open post-season play a week later against Anderson County at 6 p.m.

    The 28th District tournament will be held at Anderson, who is also the No. 1 seed in the tourney at 17-10 overall and 5-1 against district opponents. Eminence is the No. 4 seed with a 1-16 overall record and 0-6 in the district. The winner of that game will advance to the district finals against either No. 2 Shelby County or No. 3 Henry County.

    The Henry County girls’ soccer team dropped two more games last week — 6-2 against Western Hills on Wednesday and 3-1 against Fern Creek on Thursday — but they are still “on the upward curve of progression,” head coach Shannon Snider said of his Ladycats who brought a 3-1-7 record into this week.

    “I’m still happy with how things are going,” he said. “It’s all about building for the future at this point.”

  • It's a K.O. for the Cats

    In a contest labled “The Game,” it just wasn’t much of a game this year. In fact, it was a K.O. off a strong, right haymaker in the opening round — if this was a boxing match that is. Eminence was bounced off the ropes, knocked down early and couldn’t get back up as Henry County came away with an unpredictable 55-6 victory.

  • County thriller Friday night

    High school football fans around the area will be at Henry County's field this Friday at 7:30 p.m. to watch the Wildcats take on cross-county rivals Eminence in what's shaping into a heated battle- at least they should be. I could give you a long list of reasons why to come out to this game, but it would be much larger than this one column could handle.

    For the 12th straight year, Friends For Michael hosted its annual 5K run, which drew 73 runners and walkers from around the area Saturday morning in the largest road race in Henry County.

  • Ladycats on top for third time...

    In two games last week, the Henry County girls' soccer team looked like a completely different squad with its worst game of the season in a 3-0 loss to Frankfort last Monday and one of its best games of the season in a 1-0 win over Kentucky Country Day two days later.

    The split decisions left the Ladycats with a 3-5-1 record at the midway point of their first-ever varsity season.
