  • Wishful Thinking

    This ridiculous weather has left me with a lot of extra time on my hands this week. Local teams played only two games this week out of the six that were scheduled. So I have had more than enough time to think and that is always dangerous.

    I am going to share some of these thoughts with you. I know you didn’t ask, but here it is anyway.

  • Wildcats defeat Warriors 65-47

    Round two of the inter-county rivalry was played in Eminence on Jan. 14, and the Henry County Wildcats came out on top against the host Warriors again after defeating them earlier in the year. But this time the outcome was a little better for the Warriors, who lost to the Cats by 25 points in New Castle in early December.

    This version of the rivalry started slowly with neither team being able to find the basket in the first 90 seconds of the game.

  • Armstrong lends a hand

    Shelby Armstrong is not only dishing out assists on the basketball floor this winter, he is also assisting at the Henry County Help Center.

    For Armstrong, a football and basketball player at Eminence High School, what started out as a senior project became a personal mission.

  • Lady Cats down Mustangs

    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to Goshen on Jan. 15 to take on the North Oldham Lady Mustangs and came away with a 46-38 victory. The Lady Cats started strong with good defense and jumped out to a 10-4 lead after one period.

    In the second period the Lady Mustangs closed the gap early but the Lady Cats were able to regain momentum and got a big 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer from Cheyenne Clark to lead 22-15.

  • Warriors fall to KSD, Trimble

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Danville on Thursday night to take on the Kentucky School for the Deaf and lost 31-26.

    The Warriors started out with the first basket of the game and led 4-2 early before KSD went on a run to take the lead. By halftime the Warriors had scored just three more points and trailed 12-7.

    “I was disappointed in our effort in the first half, especially coming off the Trimble game the night before,” Coach Zach Adair said.

  • Warriors slow start leads to...

    The Eminence Warriors got off to a rough start against the Owen County Rebels on Thursday night in Owenton and never fully recovered in falling to the Rebels 57-44.

    The Warriors managed just five points in the first quarter and six in the second period while the Rebels got a hot start from their outside shooters in ringing up 43 first-half points.

  • Lady Cats down Owen, fall to...

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Owen County Lady Rebels on Friday night in an important district seeding game and came away with 45-40 win after playing a near-flawless second quarter.

    After getting off to a good start the Lady Cats led 14-11 at the end of the first period. But the first period was only a hint of what was to come.

    The Cats held Owen County scoreless in the second period while scoring another 14 points to take a 28-11 lead into the locker room.
