    Henry County came out fired up at Scott High School in both teams' season-ending games Friday night, outscoring the Eagles 10-0 during the first quarter and hanging on to a 17-14 lead at the half. But after the break, the Wildcats, the smallest team in Class 3A, wore down and Scott, a much larger 5A team, poured it on. The Eagles took the lead early in the third quarter and pulled away to a 42-24 senior night win.

    When Jesus Ramos crossed the finish line Saturday in the Class A, Region 2 Cross Country Championships, Eminence coach Scott McClamroch didnt tell his runner he had qualified for the State Cross Country Championships. Instead, he waited for the awards ceremony for the youngster to find out.

    Five weeks after Henry County defeated Western Hills, 40-22, the two Class 3A, District Four teams will be at it again. But this time, there will be a little more at stake.

  • Youngsters showing their stuff

    I don't want to get too far ahead of myself - I have a problem doing that at times - but thinking about the future Henry County High School and Eminence High School football teams make me grin a bit.

    And if you're a fan of either squad, it should make you smile, too.

    Henry County's cross country team was short on numbers Saturday in the Class 2A, Region 3 Championships in Goshen, but the Cats managed to qualify half of their runners for the Kentucky State Cross Country Championships the following weekend.

    Brittany Crawford, the lone Henry runner in the girls' varsity race, finished 12th to advance, while Larry Farmer finished 10th in the boys' varsity race and Travis Farmer finished 17th. Other Henry runners included Mike Beavin, who finished 33rd, Brandon Goodwin, 35th, and Timothy Ashby, 55th.

    With a 7-3 record and a regular-season District Four title behind them, and a Class 3A state playoff game on their home field this Friday night, the Henry County Wildcats are on a upswing. But, according to junior varsity coach Lyndon Johnson, that swing will only get higher.

    Eminence's football team hung with Frankfort High School through two quarters on Oct. 19, trailing the highly-ranked Panthers just 7-0 at the break. But Frankfort, who was ranked second among Class A teams at the time, scored 30 points during the second half, allowed Eminence to squeak into the end zone just once, and pulled away to a convincing 37-8 win.

    Now, three weeks later, the teams will be squaring off once again, this time in the opening round of the Class A Football State Tournament. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday night on Frankfort's home turf.

  • Henry County Cross Country team...

    The Class 2A, Region 3 Championship was a record-breaking affair for coach Ricky Drawbaugh and his Henry County Cats last season.

    Henry displayed a perfect peak as nine of its 11 runners set personal records, the boys' team qualified for the KHSAA State Cross Country Championships for the second consecutive year, and Brittany Crawford and Cassey Fischer qualified individually. Now, a year later, the second-year head coach wants his team to duplicate last year's feat.
