  • Lady Cats defeat Warriors 33-19


    Heading into halftime, the Henry County Lady Cats led in-county rival Eminence 18-16. Taking the court at halftime, the Lady Cats used a stingy, stifling defense to come away with a 33-19 win.

    The Lady Cats outscored Eminence 11-2 in the third period to effectively put the game away.

    Henry County opened with full-court pressure defense and forced the Warriors to turn the ball over on their first seven possessions of the game. But the Lady Cats squandered extra chances and led only 4-0 with less than 5 minutes to go in the period.

  • Warriors win on put back

    The Eminence Warriors boys’ basketball team led just twice in their home contest against Henry County last week, but as the saying goes, they led when it counts most.

    Cornelius Sanford’s put-back of a Demarcus Bailey miss with 3.7 seconds left gave the Warriors a thrilling come-from-behind win over their cross-county rivals.

    The score was tied at 52.

    Four of the game’s taller players fouled out: Henry County’s Derek Jeffries and Austin Young; and Eminence’s Brandon Mitchell and Daishon Moore.

  • Comeback falls short v. Trimble

    Three days after they came from behind to defeat their in-county rivals, the Eminence Warriors almost pulled off another come-from-behind victory, this time against Trimble County.

    But the Warriors were one 3-point bomb shy of completing the comeback, and the Raiders came out with a 67-64 win.

    Eminence built a nice lead with a 13-2 run to open the game only to see it fall as Trimble fought their way back into it.  Eventually the Raiders would lead by 10 points, at 32-22, and lead by 8 at the half.

  • Lady Cats down Shawe

    Following their win over Eminence, the Henry County Lady Cats took on regional powerhouse Gallatin County, and fell 57-18.

    But Saturday night, the Lady Cats took advantage of their home court in a 45-22 win over Shawe High School.

    Cheyenne Clark led the Lady Cats with 20 points, while Colleen Coomes dominated the glass with 15 rebounds.
