    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    General Manager

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

  • 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.

  • Jeffries spends summer with Hoyas

    Derek Jeffries, junior at Henry County High School, played center and power forward for the Basketball Academy of Louisville 16U BA Hoya Elite team.

    The team was made up of players selected from tryouts of more than 45 players. The final team of 12 came from the 1st, 6th, 7th and 8th Regions.

    Derek was busy in April, May and July traveling around the country to compete in elite AAU/travel team tournaments with 75 or more teams in this division from Florida to Michigan and Texas to Canada.

  • Looking for more players

    In an effort to attract more football players to a struggling Henry County Youth Football League, most notably the Eastern Colts, the deadline for signups has been extended to Aug. 19.
    Players report to JAM Day this Saturday for weigh ins and to submit a completed roster — which in the past served as the cutoff point for players to join one of the five teams in the league — but they can continue to signup during the next two weeks.
    Overall, the numbers are alarmingly down from past seasons in the HCYFL, lower than they’ve been in years.

  • MAY 25, 1967: Jim Green sets...

    LEXINGTON, Ky — Those who watched sprinter Jim Green set three state records Saturday in Lexington, in the Class A Track and Field Meet know what the Eminence youth meant when he said:
    “There wasn’t anybody to push me, so I was just running against the clock.”
    Green had the crowd of about 1,500 buzzing at the University of Kentucky’s Sportscenter when he left his opposition far back in the 100, 220 and 440-yard dashes.
    Green provided Eminence with its only scoring punch with his three victories (worth six points each).
