  • 4-H begins new program year

    October is the official month that 4-H begins its new program year. While we have a great group of youth that are involved in 4-H across the county there is always room for more. I would like to encourage parents as well as those age eligible, ages 9-19, to take advantage of some of these great opportunities to learn and grow in a fun environment. Here are a few of the clubs that I would like to highlight this week.

  • Warriors grind it out against Raiders

    The Eminence Warriors have relied on a balance of passing and running to win football games over the last several seasons, but that changed Friday night when they took on the Trimble County Raiders.

    The Warriors used their third quarterback of the season, Jalen Dixie, and found that running the ball against the Raiders was an effective way to break in the first-time starting quarterback.

  • Lady Cats get Top Seed

    The Henry County Lady Cats soccer team hosted the Carroll County Lady Panthers on Oct. 1 and came away with a convincing 4-0 win.

    The Cats dominated possession in the opening minutes of the game while Carroll County struggled to get the ball across midfield into scoring position but the Lady Cats could not take advantage.

  • Cross Country Cats Place Three on NCKC Team

    The Henry County cross country team competed in the North Central Kentucky Conference championship on Oct. 1 at Trimble County.

    Josh Logsdon, Lily Golden and Katherine Buckler finished well enough to make the all-conference team as both the boys’ and girls’ team had only four runners competing and did not get a team score.

  • Peyton, Hensley make State Golf Tournament

    Henry County’s MacKenzie Peyton and Maddie Hensley punched their tickets to the state golf tournament, again.

    Peyton shot 74 and Hensley shot 80 in the regional tournament at the Henry County Country Club to qualify for the state tournament in Bowling Green this weekend.

    Nikki Perkinson shot 118 and Hayley Peyton shot 121 to give the Cats a team score of 393. Bayleigh Boyer played as the Cats fifth golfer and shot 136. The Lady Cats golf team, consisting of one junior, one freshman and three seventh graders finished 7th out of 13 teams in Region 5.

  • Wariorrs romp over Gallatin, Southern; Record Stans at 16-2

    The Eminence Warriors volleyball team is in the midst of a dream season.

    Last week, they hosted Gallatin County on Oct. 1 first and downed the Lady Wildcats 25-11, 25-11, 25-13.

    The win gave the Warriors a perfect 9-0 record against district opponents this year and will allow the Warriors to be the top seed on their own floor come district tournament time.

    Coach Stephanie Barrows is pleased with the progress of her team.
