  • Wildcats win fifth straight


    The Henry County Wildcats made it five wins in a row when they traveled to Dry Ridge Feb. 9 to take on the Grant County Braves.

    The Wildcats managed the six-point victory despite playing without leading scorer Gavin Jameson for most of the game because of foul trouble.

    By Greg Woods


    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Florence Thursday night and put the game against Heritage Academy out of reach in the first four minutes as they went on to an easy 60-17 win.

  • Wildcats on a roll with three...


    The Henry County Wildcats went into their final district-seeding contest with Gallatin County on Jan. 26 knowing that they had already sewn up a spot in the 2-3 seed game opposite of Owen County in the district tournament. But they still had plenty of motivation against their district rivals from Warsaw.

  • Lady Cats win two, lose two


    After a long layoff because of snow, the Henry County Lady Cats were back in action Jan. 26 at North Oldham High School where they came from behind to beat the Lady Mustangs, 49-44.

    Henry County continued to struggle to find a rhythm in the second quarter and trailed at halftime 22-17.

  • Warriors drop two vs. district...


    The Eminence Warriors hosted the Owen County Rebels Jan. 25 and fell to the 31st district power 96-67. The Rebels ran their district to 8-0 with the win and Eminence fell to 1-5 in district seeding games.

    Owen County opened with a 3-pointer just 23 seconds into the game but Eminence answered with the next four points on baskets by Dre Wright and Kemryn Jenkins.

  • EHS girls whip Wyverns


    The Warriors traveled to West Jessamine Jan. 26 to take on the Colts and fell 70-24.

    The Warriors started well offensively with Tavi West scoring 11 points in the first period and the team tallying 15 points but the Colts scored 32 to lead by 17 going into the second period.

    EHS cooled off in the second period when Emilie Ethington and Madison Dockter hit one free throw each for the team’s entire scoring total in the period. The Colts scored 19 and led at the break, 41-17.

  • Wildcats eke out victory over...


    The Henry County Wildcats and Eminence Warriors met for the second time this season Jan. 19 at EHS. The Wildcats won again but, unlike the first game, which the Wildcats won by 15 points, this game was not decided until the waning seconds.

    The Warriors led 16-13 after the first period, mainly on the strength of excellent play by senior Jake McKinley who had nine points in the period.

  • EHS girls improve against...


    The Eminence Warriors girls basketball team lost two home games to district rivals but showed significant progress in the development of the program.

    The Warriors lost to Gallatin County on Jan. 18, 56-30. Thursday night they fell to Carroll County 50-39.

    The margin of victory in both games provides the evidence of progress.

  • District seeding picture still...

    As we approach the final weeks of the high school basketball regular season, the 31st district seeding picture has cleared a little but is still murky in some regards.

    On the boys’ side it has been clear for a while now that Owen County would be the number one seed and play the winner of the 4-5 seed game.

    Now that Henry County has pulled out a thriller at Eminence, the Wildcats have four wins and have guaranteed themselves a place as a two or three seed. They stand at 4-3 in district games.
