  • Wildcats 5-0 after wins over...

    The Henry County Wildcats got a rare road win over the Gallatin County Wildcats on Friday night by a score of 53-52. The Cats needed a furious comeback in the game’s final two minutes to get their first win in Warsaw since Dec. 12, 2001, when George Abernathy’s Wildcats won 57-53.

  • Warriors fall to Model

    The Eminence Warriors would probably just as soon forget their trip to Richmond on Saturday to take on the Richmond Model Patriots. The Warriors were without leading scorer Jalen Dixie, who is serving a two-game suspension for his ejection in the Henry County game, and DeMarcus Bailey who sprained his ankle in practice on Thursday night.

    Add to that what Coach Chris Nethery described as a lack of effort and poor shooting and you have a recipe for a blowout loss, which is what happened to the Warriors as they fell to the Patriots 60-31.

  • 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.
