  • Ladycats storm back with 3-0 week

    The opening game of their season left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Ladycats. It burned. It stung. It wasn’t forgotten.

    After their 0-6 loss to Spencer County on Aug. 18, the Henry County High School Girls Soccer team roared back — beating Carroll County 3-1; Whitefield Academy 8-1; and Jeffersontown 3-2; all in the same week.

    That initial loss served to, as coach Shannon Snider said last week, shake the dust off. Last week’s wins boosted morale.

  • Wildcats drop the ball

    In their 28-6 loss to Walton-Verona, the Henry County Wildcats may have had better luck wrestling with a greased pig.

    “We could not hold onto the football,” Coach Jason Spencer said. “The ball hit the ground at least 15 times. (We had) no ball security.”

  • Warriors win battle; lose the war

    The coach was screaming as loud as the Lady Warriors faithful — but not in a bad way.

    With each point, she screamed. With each point she clapped. And with some, she threw her head back and threw her fist into the air, caught in the joy of the moment.

    As the Warriors volleyball team inched its way forward and took the lead in the second game of its best-of-three match against Bardstown, Stephanie Barrows was screaming, cheering, pumping her fist along with players on the bench and fans in the crowd.

  • Warriors soar over Golden Eagles...

    Barely two minutes into their game against Shawnee High School, the Eminence Warriors started a trend. It was the Bradley Foree-Brandon Mitchell connection — a record-setting connection.

    Together, the two teamed up for five touchdown pass receptions. Those touchdowns broke a schoole record held by Ed Berry for the most touchdown receptions in one game. Eminence Head Coach Steve Frommeyer said Mitchell’s five touchdown receptions are tied for second in the state’s history.

    Bengels start season
    with win over Trimble County

    The Campbellsburg Bengals Varsity got the season started off great with a 14-0 win over the Trimble County Raiders. The Bengals got on the board when Clay Ingabrand recovered a fumble in the endzone for a touchdown. Extra point was no good. The second score came when the Bengals kept the ball the entire third quarter and at the beginning of the fourth quarter Brandon Tindle scored from 5 yards out.

  • Mitchell steps in at key moment

    General Manager

    It may have been the critical point in the game — keep Warrior momentum going and stifle the Colonels of Caverna.

    But the starting quarterback was out of the game — temporarily — with cramps.

    Eminence High School quarterback Bradley Foree had just left the game, and his return was questionable.

  • Anderson, First Spike games...

    General Manager

    They’re “volleyballed out,” according to head coach Stephanie Barrows, but the Eminence volleyball team is on a roll.

    In the First Spike Invitational Tournament, held at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center on Saturday, the Lady Warriors won the bronze division, giving them some much needed confidence heading into this week.

    The team played five games, spread among pool and tournament play. “The first little bit of it was pool play for fun,” Barrows said, while the second part was all business.

  • Knocking off the dust

    General Manager

    It was a week of highs and lows for the Henry County Girls Soccer team.

    In their season opener against Spencer County — after Gallatin County failed to have enough players to even field a team last week — the Ladycats fell 0-6 in a bitter game.

  • Wildcats fall to Mustangs, 21-52

    General Manager

    Despite running and passing for more than 450 yards of total offense, the Henry County Wildcats opened their season with a 21-52 loss to North Oldham.

    “The kids played hard, but we got down a little bit early,” head coach Jason Spencer said. “It was a first game, we made some mistakes — things that are fixable, though. We lost the game, but it was not for lack of effort.”

  • Baughman wins National Public...

    Henry and Jann Baughman traveled via RV to Minneapolis, Minn., last week, where he participated in the Category II National Public Parks Championships.

    Playing in the 70 & over singles division, Baughman was the lone entry outside of Minnesota. He was seeded No. 1 and received a bye in the eight-draw field. In the semi-finals, he defeated Tom Frydinger 6-0, 6-0.

    In the finals, he defeated the No. 1-ranked player in Minnesota, Bob Busch, 6-2, 6-1 for his 19th title in the nation’s oldest tennis tournament.
