    For the first time in a long time, Henry County High School will have a team playing in an All A Classic state tournament when the Ladycats take to the golf course against some of the top smaller schools across the state Sept. 13 in Richmond.

  • Boys' soccer team 0-2 but...

    After starting last Mondays soccer game a little flat, the Henry County Wildcats turned the tables to come out aggressive in the second half which helped them play more even with host Spencer County and close the gap on the scoreboard. But in the end, after 80 hard-fought minutes, the Wildcats came up short, 5-3.

    For the Wildcats, a first-year team trying to build a program from scratch, they have started the season at 0-2 with their opening loss to Waggener the week before. Henry played much better the second time out, especially in its second-half turnaround.

  • Eminence uses a very strong...

    After the Eminence Warriors backpedaled during the second quarter, when Beth Haven managed to squeeze in its only two touchdowns of the game, they went full-speed ahead during the final two quarters to turn their 22-16 halftime lead into a 44-16 runaway victory on both teams season openers Friday night at EHS.

    For Eminence, it was a start to what looks to be a very strong season, led by 10 seniors and a few standout playmakers.

    Sit back, relax, chill for a little while. From the looks of things, Eminence and Henry County fans will have plenty to stand up and cheer about when the lights come on Friday nights.
