  • County teams advance to middle...

    Henry County Middle School is still perfect at 8-0, Eminence Middle School has just one blemish on its record at 8-1, and both teams will play in the middle school state playoffs starting this week.

    It marks the first time both teams have qualified for the playoffs in one of the three divisions that make up middle school football in Kentucky. With Division 1 being the largest, Henry plays in Division 2 and Eminence in Division 3.

  • Frankfort wins again

    Frankfort’s perfect streak of district wins continues.

    Since the state’s football realignment in 2007, Frankfort has won all 16 of its District Four outings en route to three district championships and has established itself as one of the leading Class A programs in the area.

    Eminence has lost to the Panthers in their last five meetings, and it was no different on Friday night as Frankfort used its speed to jump out to an early 21-0 lead and cruised in for the 34-6 victory.

  • Eminence takes Anderson to tie-...

    An Eminence season that was highlighted by the volleyball squad celebrating more wins than the last four years combined came to an end Monday night with a 2-1 loss to Anderson County in the first round of the 30th District tournament.

    Playing inside the small but rowdy gym at Henry County High School, the Lady Warriors forced a tie-breaker third game in the best-of-three series but could not pull out another win over a team they had beaten just one week earlier. Despite the loss, it was a fitting end for a team raising its expectations.

  • Soccer squad ends season with 1-...

    With the Henry County boys’ soccer team deciding to forgo its chance at a postseason this year, the season finale for the Wildcats was last Tuesday night in a 10-0 loss to Martha Layne Collins High School.

  • Henry Co. knocked out by...

    Playing against a middle school that doesn’t even exist, the Henry County Middle School football season came to an end on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Division 2 State Playoffs.

    Henry was perfect at 8-0 during the regular season, and beat Owen County and Western in the first two rounds of the playoffs. But against Lexington Catholic — a team composed of separate middle schools in the Lexington area but is allowed to play as a single team — Henry lost 14-12 to end what was a remarkable season. Maybe the best ever for HCMS.

  • EHS Hall of Fame inducts its...

    Highlighted by the 1939 boys’ basketball team, the Eminence Hall of Fame inducts its sixth class this weekend, in conjunction with the high school’s football game against Trimble County on Friday night.

  • MacKenzie Peyton headed to state!

    Winning the North Central Kentucky Conference championship for the first time since the 1990s, the Henry County boys’ golf team came through when it mattered the most.

    The Wildcats hosted the conference tournament last Tuesday at the Henry County Country Club, finishing with a four-person combined score of 339 to win by four strokes. It was the focal point of 2010.

  • Kasten trying to get individuals...

    After losing two district games last week and winning what could have been the deciding game for the conference championship, Henry County coach Jon Kasten said he has not been pleased with his team’s recent play on the volleyball court.

    The Ladycats were coming off five straight wins before dropping three of their next four. They are now 8-6 overall.

  • It’s a 61-0 win for...

    On a night with a lot riding on the line, the Eminence football team dominated Bracken County on Friday to open District Four play with a 61-0 victory.

    The Warriors entered the game at 1-3 and were still searching for their first win against an in-state school — the one earlier win came against Burch High School in West Virginia. It was also Eminence’s Homecoming Night and was the opener of a four-week stretch of games against district teams that determines who makes the postseason and who hosts playoff games.

  • Cats ready to move on after loss

    A week after upsetting Anderson County in what was one of the biggest wins for the Henry County football program, the Wildcats took a 49-13 loss to Owensboro Catholic on Friday night.

    It was not what coach Lyndon Johnson was looking for, especially coming off the huge win against Anderson.

    Owensboro Catholic was ahead 21-0 after the first quarter, scored the game’s first 28 points, did not allow the visiting Wildcats a touchdown until the second half, and cruised in for the 36-point victory.
