  • EHS Girls Drop Two

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team hosted the Collegiate Amazons on Thursday night and fell 57-22.

    The Warriors got off to a slow start as they struggled with the Amazons’ full court press. Collegiate scored on layups off their press mixed with 3-point shots and free throws to take a 19-1 lead after the first period.

    The game continued on the same path to start the second quarter as Collegiate scored the first seven points to make it 26-1.

  • Warriors down Raider; Dixie...

    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Bedford on a wintry Saturday night after having their opening home game with Gallatin County postponed on Friday night due to bad road conditions.

  • Wildcats Roll in Week One

    The Henry County Wildcats celebrated their home opener against the Western Hills Wolverines on Thursday night with a dominating 61-19 victory. The Wildcats were led in scoring by Austin Young with 14 points, but it was the depth of the Wildcats that overwhelmed the Wolverines.

    The game started at a frenetic pace but neither team could find their shooting touch early and after four minutes the score stood at 4-4. But the Cats went on a 13-0 run to finish the opening period and never looked back.

  • Lady Cats split pair to open...

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Lady Wolverines of Western Hills on Thursday night and looked like they were on their way to a second straight victory to open the season when the wheels came off.

    After a slow start that found the Lady Cats trailing 15-10 at the end of the first period, the team played very well for 2.5 quarters before Western Hills put on a furious rally to send the game into overtime. The Lady Wolverines pulled away in the extra period for a 56-51 win.

  • Warriors fall to Paris

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Paris to take on the Paris High School Lady Hounds on in their season opener on Saturday and fell 40-5.

    The Warriors had trouble with the Lady Hounds’ pressure defense and committed numerous turnovers that led to easy baskets.

    The Warriors’ half court defense kept it close early according to Coach Zach Adair.  “Our 3-2 zone defense wasn’t bad. It was 6-0 about halfway through the first period. What killed us were turnovers that were converted into points.”

  • Local Hoops Season off to a Good...

    The high school hoops season got underway last week and most area teams got off to a good start. On Monday the Henry County Wildcats went to North Bullitt and won by 18 points and by all accounts didn’t play that well in the first half. It’s always a good sign when you can win by 18 points and feel that you have lots of room for improvement.

    On Thursday the Cats hammered a poor-shooting Western Hills team and, again, coaches and players felt they could have done better.
