    The Saints went 22-7 this season and won a share of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference regular season title and won the conference tournament.

    The Saints fell to Guilford in the first round of the NCAA tournament. It was their first appearance in the tournament since 2009.

    Two Henry County High School graduates were a big part of their success.

    The Eminence Warriors threatened to run away with an easy win in the first half and then had to withstand a furious Henry County rally before pulling out a 52-42 win in the first round of the 31st District tournament.

    The host Lady Cats took a 5-2 lead with 3:25 left in the first quarter on a Katherine Buckler 3-pointer. But the Warriors answered back with 3-pointers from Emilie Ethington and Tavi West to lead 8-5 after a nervous opening period for both teams.

  • Jenkins makes all region team,...

    The 8th Region Basketball Coaches Association released it’s all-region team last week and there was at least one surprise on that team. Or I should say not on that team.

    While Eminence High School’s Kemryn Jenkins deservedly made the team, Henry County’s Zach Hinkel did not.

    Jenkins was the region’s leading scorer at 27.4 points per game in the regular season. He shot 63.5 percent from the field and 48.8 percent from behind the 3-point arc. Those are staggering numbers for any player at any level and against any competition.

    “The guys came out with a wonderful attitude and good body language before the game,” EHS Assistant Coach Ray Valentine said. “I could tell they were ready to play, but came out slow and maybe rushed a couple of shots.”
