  • Warriors fall to Nicholas


    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Nicholas County Friday night and ran into a tough Nicholas County High School team that scored early and often on the way to a 60-20 win.

    The Bluejackets scored their first two touchdowns as a result of Warrior turnovers. The first touchdown came with 9:33 after the Warriors lost the ball on a bad snap.

    On the Warriors’ ensuing drive, Nicholas County picked off a pass and returned it all the way to the end zone to lead 12-0 with 9:22 left in the opening period.

  • Wildcats defeat Carroll


    The Henry County Wildcats came into Friday nights contest with local rival Carroll County as a big favorite to take the win.

    But Carroll County stepped up their game a week after being hammered by Grant County and put up a strong fight against the bigger, more athletic Wildcats.

    When the halftime buzzer sounded, Henry County found themselves in a 7-7 dogfight with the Panthers.

  • Lady Cats come back


    The Henry County Lady Cats soccer team got their third win of the season Thursday night but it wasn’t easy. After going on top 2-1 at halftime the Lady Cats had to make a frenzied comeback late in the game after conceding two goals in the first four minutes of the second half.

    With four minutes to go in the game Henry County needed one goal to salvage a tie. They ended up getting three in the last 3:43 to win 5-3.

  • Warriors run away from Berea, 60...


    The Eminence Warriors lit up the scoreboard again this week after hanging 52 points on Trimble County last week.

    Friday night the Berea Pirates were the victim in a 60-33 game that was closer than the score indicated.

    Berea led in the early going by a score of 20-6.

    “We came out flat,” Coach Brian Dorshefski said. “We dug ourselves a hole.”

  • HCHS volleyball improving


    The Henry County Lady Cats dropped three matches last week. They traveled to Walton Aug. 24 where they fell in two games, 12-25, 7-25. The next night they hosted Shelby County and again fell in two games, 17-25, 21-25.

    However, Coach Kara Capps saw a huge difference from one night to the next.

    “I feel like the Walton game should have been totally different,” Capps said. “Actually, I know that the girls could have competed and made it an exciting game. I guess we didn’t come ready to play as a team that night.

  • Wildcats golf host HCIT


    The Henry County Wildcat golf team had a busy week last week with two dual matches and their own tournament.

    The Wildcats dominated at every position with Alex Hadden shooting 38, Isaac Klempner 41, Dillon Allen 43 and Jakob Beckley 52. Luke Kent played as the team’s fifth golfer and shot 55.

  • Wildcats soccer falls to Grant...


    Slow starts are becoming a habit that Henry County boys soccer coach Adam Knust would like to break with his young team.

    The visiting Grant County Braves jumped on top of the Wildcats 4-0 19 minutes into their game Thursday night and the Wildcats, despite playing better in the second half, could not overcome the deficit.
