  • EHS spikes Western

    In a typical year, Portland Christian would be an easy volleyball win for the Eminence Warriors.

    So it was, perhaps, a bit easy for the Warriors to think they might be able to hold back a little.

    Eminence coach Stephanie Barrows believes her team went into their match against Portland with past performances on their mind, and the team held back. As a result, they fell 25-23, 25-19.

  • Despite loss, Henry shows guts at Carroll

    For one set, it looked like the Henry County Lady Cats were heading for a straight-sets loss at Carroll County.

    Carroll then regained their composure and took game 4 to win the match.

  • Lady Cats drop three in busy soccer week

    Against one of the top teams in the state, the Henry County Lady Cats held their own for a few minutes Monday night.

    But the well-oiled, experienced Oldham County Lady Colonels hit their first goal 5:30 into the game, and the onslaught continued for the next 10 minutes as Oldham sliced the Henry defense apart with solid passing and pinpoint shots.

  • Grueling week wears down soccer Cats

    Five games in six days took its toll on the Henry County boys’ soccer team.

    After a day of rest on Sunday the Cats came home to play Spencer County. The Bears scored their first goal at the 33:45 mark from about five yards out. Spencer continued to attack and added two more quick goals and led 3-0 with 29:10 remaining in the first half.

    The Cats started getting into the game and had more possession after the third goal. Gavin Jameson had a good opportunity from 18 yards out that went off the crossbar at 23:30.

  • Lady Cats win over Panthers

    Playing again without their top golfer, the Henry County Lady Cats rolled past Carroll County on Sept. 4 217 to 247.

    Sixth grader Maddie Hensley led the way with a 44. Freshman Cheyenne Clark shot 46, sixth grader Nikki Perkinson shot 62,  and sixth grader Claire Young shot 65. Playing but not figuring in the team scoring were sixth graders Haley Peyton and Tori Williams, who shot 66 and 72 respectively.

  • Debate, postulate don’t regurgitate

    My hat goes off to Joe Yates. He definitely poked a certain constituency in the eye with his letter on July 25 and again last week.

    The letters we’ve received since Yates’ initial letter have been, overwhelmingly, in support of Geoff Davis and against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

    Each letter has had, to some degree, a “fact” that has been resoundingly debunked by the major fact checking services.

  • The Music Man

    Playing music is different than just listening to it for Chip Anderson. He hopes his teaching makes the same difference for his students.

    Anderson exposes Henry County middle and high school students to a broad spectrum of music from the classical to the contemporary. From Mozart to Cee Lo Green, students learn to play a variety of music that is entertaining and educational not just in the classroom, but at ballgames. His passion for music led to his job as Henry County middle and high school band director.
