  • Frommeyer gets credit for win 200

    Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed my time out of state in Gatlinburg last week, which was a needed vacation as my first real get-away in nearly two years. But I missed a whole lot while I was gone: I didn’t check my e-mail for six days; never got online; didn’t find out the scores of any of the local high school games; and never once tuned in to ESPN. My wife was proud — even though she got to watch the HGTV channel numerous times while we were in our cabin in downtown boonieville.

    For the first time this season, Henry County and Eminence met on the volleyball court last Tuesday night as the host Ladycats controlled the scoreboard from the start and cruised in for the 2-0 win in the best-of-three series.

    Henry never trailed during the county showdown and ended the match ahead 25-5 and 25-13. The Ladycats improved their early-season record to 3-2 with the win, while the Lady Warriors dropped to 0-5. For Eminence, a team trying to rebuild after a 2-19 season, the nerves might have got the best of the young but usually enthusiastic players.

    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.

    Henry had been ruled ineligible to play in the All A Classic since 1999, but after the guidelines were changed to allow the smallest 125 schools to play in various tournaments, regardless of size, Henry became eligible this school year.

    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.
