    Typically, Henry County uses a pass-happy offense that picks opponents apart, but it was the Wildcats’ ground attack that pushed them past Carroll County in a 47-14 victory Friday night.

  • Soccer teams here to stay

    There were highs and lows. There were victories. Losses. Speed bumps. High-fiving moments. Injuries. Celebrations. Road blocks.

    But along the way, regardless of what the scoreboard said, these players continued to make history and continued to pave the way for future soccer teams at Henry County High School. And when it was all said and done last week, they were just happy that they got the chance to play.

    It was a season full of firsts for the Henry County boys’ soccer team, which accumulated with a 9-0 loss to Shelby County in the Wildcats first try in the 16th District tournament Monday night.

    The Henry County Ladycats ran into the best team they have played all season Monday night, which also happened to be the opening round of the 16th District tournament and the season finale for the Cats’ inaugural season.

    Eminence’s volleyball team put up a good fight in its final match of the season, but came up just short as host Anderson County sent the Lady Warriors away after two games Monday night in the opening round of the 28th District tournament.

    Eminence, the No. 4 seed, played the underdog role well in the opening game of the best-of-three series, holding the early lead and building it to 11-7 midway through the eye-popping start. Anderson, the No. 1 seed, then used a couple of spurts to even up the scoreboard and open up its own lead.

    The fourth class of the Eminence High School Hall of Fame was recognized at halftime of the high school football game Friday night and officially inducted the following day. It includes two current EHS football coaches, two former superintendents, a librarian, a school board member, a golfer, and a former teacher and coach.

    Sports editor

    At Eminence’s cross-country practice last Friday — the day before the Warriors would compete at the Capital View Classic — coach Scott McClamroch told his runners the course would be “a bit challenging but not too bad.” He found out otherwise the following day when his runners raced on the toughest course they will see all season long. With very few flat spots and long, windy hills, Capital View has a reputation as being a tough course that produces slow times.

    Sports editor

    Playing in the first-ever All “A” Classic State Volleyball Tournament, Henry County’s volleyball team won its pool play, advanced to the Gold Division for the top 16 teams and went 3-2 during the two-day event. The Ladycats had the 28th District tournament — which started just a few days later — on their minds, but still left the Mid-America Sports Complex with solid performances after two games Friday night and three games Saturday.

  • Warriors back on winning side,...

    Sports editor

    A week after taking a disappointing loss to cross-county rival Henry County, the Eminence Warriors got back on the winning side of things in a big way Friday night with a 58-16 blowout win over visiting Evangel Christian in 8-man action.

  • It's over for four county...

    In a span of just a few hours Monday night, four high school seasons in the county came to a screeching halt. For one team, it was a nail-bitting showdown against a much larger school that has turned into a rival. For another team, it was a great end — at least from my perspective — despite the loss. And for the two other teams, it was the finish to a successful inaugural season full of bumps and bruises.
