    It was just the start the Lady Warriors were looking for.

  • A true small-town hero

    While sitting at his dining room table in June 2005, Larry Jeffries emerged from a back room with a small stack of papers that had listed some of his athletic achievements, along with a few old clippings from newspapers that had followed Jeffries during his young, more athletic days 40 years earlier.

    In all three games at the Lady Spartan Invitational last week, the Henry County girls’ basketball team started out slow in the opening minutes before progressing throughout.

    For a majority of the Eminence girls’ basketball team, they spent the fall running mile after mile for the high school’s cross-country team. Now, the Lady Warriors hope that extra endurance translates to the basketball court this winter.

    After three seasons as the head coach for the Henry County High School cross-country team, Ricky Drawbaugh has recently decided to resign his position. Drawbaugh might coach track this spring but will definitely not be back for cross next fall or track the following year.

    “It was not an easy decision. The biggest factor in my resignation was my family,” said Drawbaugh, who is married and has a 16-month-old daughter. “I will miss working with the kids. The team will be fine, though.”
