  • Eminence Lady Warriors' top...

    Before Carter Martin can build a successful program at Eminence High School, he has to be competitive. Thats his motto, and hes sticking to it.

    Martin inherited a program last year that was coming off a 2-20 season under the guidance of Corey Scriber, and had won just 16 games the previous six seasons. And by the time Martins first season came to a halt with a 70-16 loss to Shelby County in the opening round of post-season action in February, his team had won just once.

  • EHS Warriors might play 11-man...

    Within the next few years, Eminence's football team might get back to what made the program successful during the 1990s - eight-man football. But coach Steve Frommeyer and his Warriors, who won numerous state eight-man titles and a few national crowns, want to continue in the 11-man, district-playoffs format, too.

    Now, they might get the chance to do both.

  • Wildcats playing past Turkey Day...

    The price for Lyndon Johnson's amusing but realistic head painting before Friday's game - around 50 dollars. The price to fix the one-bar-up, one-down goal post following Henry County's 15-7 win over North Oldham - just Tim Rahm's hard work. The price for a hotel room in Paducah this Friday night - around 70 bucks.

    The price of watching the Wildcats storm the field in a history-making victory over the Mustangs - priceless.

    Priceless indeed.

    On a night when more was at stake than just another check in the win column, Henry County's football team held off North Oldham in the second round of the state playoffs to continue the Wildcats' historic run that has taken them farther than any previous team in school history.

  • Check the radar - Wildcats will...

    Sports editor

    Henry County's football players will have a long time to think about the state playoffs this Friday night - four and a half hours to be exact.

    That's how long the bus ride is expected to take to reach Paducah, which is plenty of time to get the Wildcats mentally fired up for the Class 3A, third-round showdown against the Paducah Tilghman Blue Tornados. The Wildcats hope to survive the storm.

    In Henry County's first ever home field playoff game Friday night, the Wildcats surged out to a 20-0 lead during the first 13 minutes of play and fought off Western Hills for the 20-7 win.

    Henry's opening spark eventually fizzled out, but it was enough for the Wildcats to earn their first playoff win in school history, continue a six-game home winning streak and advance to second-round action.

    The Eminence Warriors' football season came to a screeching halt Friday night in the opening round of the state playoffs when they took a 54-6 loss to Frankfort High School. The lopsided game ended the Warriors' 2007 campaign at 6-6 and advanced the Panthers to second-round action against Trimble County this Friday night.

    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.
