    The Lady Cats could not find their shooting eye in the first half of their game with the Lady Devils. They managed just four points in each of the first two quarters as Dayton ran out to a 30-8 halftime lead.

  • Fighting for the three seed

    As we start the New Year the girls’ 31st district seeding picture is coming into focus... sort of.

    Gallatin County and Owen County both sit at 3-0. They have to play each other twice before we can determine who will be the top seed and who will be the second seed. It would take a collapse by one of these teams or a great second half of the season for one of the other three teams to keep these teams from that.

    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Frederick Fraize Lady Aces Dec. 20 and used deadly 3-point shooting and strong inside play from Madison Dockter to pull away early and cruise to their second consecutive win.

    The Lady Aces scored the first two points of the game just 27 seconds in before the Warriors ripped off 15 straight points to take command of the game. The Warriors hit three 3-pointers in that opening run as Mia Gonzalez, Kenya Vargas and Emilie Ethington all found the bottom of the net from long range.

  • Mid-term reports for local hoops...

    As we approach the new year the local hoops scene is starting to give us some hints as to who will be seeded where in the 31st district tournament. But much is still up for grabs in 2017.

    On the boys’ side Gallatin County sits at 4-0 in district play. The Wildcats from Warsaw have defeated all the other teams in the district handily. None of their rivals have stayed within 10 points of them.

  • Wildcats pound Panthers, stun...

    The Henry County Wildcats were hot early against Carroll County and continued to shoot well throughout to win their first district game, 61-46, Dec. 13 in Carrollton.
