    Henry County’s Cody Hinkel picked a good night to step up his game as he muscled his way to 23 points, pulled down numerous rebounds and stayed cool down the stretch to propel the Wildcats to a 59-54 victory over South Oldham in the 8th Region tournament.

    The stars were aligned for Hinkel last Thursday night on his home court, which allowed the Wildcats to win their first regional tournament game in exactly 20 years and advance to the semifinals.

  • 'Cardiac Cats' play to...

    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.

    Sports Editor

    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.

    Sports Editor

    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.
