    The Eminence Warriors boys and girls basketball teams were introduced Friday night with a lot of fanfare and then some on-court action.

    The lights were dimmed and a large video screen was used to introduce the players while music blared through the speakers for both teams before their respective intra squad scrimmages.

    Lucky fans were given gifts during a raffle drawing at halftime of both games.

    EHS girls guard Kenya Vargas was pumped up for the action as she warmed up before the scrimmage.

  • Biggest Blue fans: Mathis and...

     

    Editor’s note: We did an informal survey via Facebook to find out who the biggest UK fan in Henry County is. After nominations closed Friday the “sports department” sat down to analyze the data and came up with a tie. Linda Sarrett Mathis, a teacher at Henry County High School, and Darlene Watts of Eminence are such ardent fans that we could not deny either the right to be called the Biggest Big Blue Fan.

    Watts and Mathis did not take the traditional course towards big Blue fandom.

  • Cold weather means it's...

    Cooler temperatures have finally arrived and that is a good signal that it is time to focus the local hoops scene. It also doesn’t hurt the University of Louisville football team imploded against Houston ending the national title dreams of local pigskin fans. And if you watched the first period of the UK football game against Austin Peay… well that would make any sports fan long for a round leather ball.

  • Meet the Wildcats

    The Henry County boys and girls basketball teams put on a show for their fans Thursday night at the third annual Meet the Wildcats introductory scrimmage.

    The night featured the introduction of not only the teams, but also a brand new video board hanging on the west wall of Roy L. Winchester gymnasium.

    The screen was used as part of the introduction of the players and to help get the Wildcat faithful fired up for the upcoming season.

    Henry County High School Athletic Director Jon Kasten has instituted a new community outreach program for all Wildcat sports teams this year.

    “The idea is to give back to the community because they give us so much,” Kasten said. “Just go up to the football field and see all the help the community has given us. It’s the same with basketball and other sports. So we want to give back.”

    Many of the teams are still in the planning stages for their programs but some of the teams have already helped out.
