  • Wildcats blank Rebels, 3-0

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted Owen County Sept. 9 and dominated the Rebels from start to finish for the 3-0 win.

    The Wildcats kept relentless pressure on the Rebels from the outset, but the Owen County defense and goalkeeper Kameron Wilson kept the Wildcats from scoring through the first half. The Wildcats had 15 shots in the first half and six on target in the first half.

    HCHS goalkeeper Jake Smith had just one save to make in the first half.

  • HCHS celebrates senior day

    The Henry County Wildcats golf team hosted Owen County at the Henry County Country Club Sept. 9 for senior day and celebrated in style.

    The Wildcats shot an even-par 140 on the par-35 front nine. The front-nine at the country club usually plays as a par-36 but HCHS Coach William Peyton said that some ground was under repair on one hole so they played it as a shorter hole.

    No one who has followed the boys golf team over the years can ever remember the entire team coming in with an even-par score.

  • Rebels hold off Wildcats’ late...

    Henry County drove downfield on their first possession and looked poised to tie the score as Andrew Mays and Eli Amiott ripped off long runs.

  • Warriors defeat Gallatin, 3-0

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Gallatin County for a 31st District matchup Sept. 10 and came away with a 25-19, 25-18, 25-16 win.

    Despite the 3-0 victory, EHS Coach Ed Sweeney thought his team took a while to get going.

    “The first two sets we played really slow and somewhat flat,” Sweeney said. “We had very little rhythm. We picked up the pace a bit in the third set and played better. We didn’t lose any sets but we seemed to lack energy overall.”

    However, Sweeney did see some things he liked about the performance.

  • Lady Cats defeated by Lady...

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Owen County Lady Rebels Sept. 9 hoping to avenge a 4-3 loss earlier in the season but Owen County scored first and went on to a three-goal victory.

    The Eminence Warriors cross country team traveled to Louisville’s Charlie Vettiner Park Saturday for the Fleet Feet Invitational and had some impressive performances.

    “We are looking forward to getting back to practice to prepare for next week’s race at the Capitol View Classic in Frankfort.”

    The Warriors received the opening kickoff and dove down the field from their own 45-yard line to score on a 20-yard pass from Justin Hedges to Taye Saunders. It was the first varsity touchdown of the sophomore receiver’s career.

    Ft. Knox moved from their own 23 to the Warrior 32-yard line before the Warriors’ defense stiffened and forced a punt.
