  • Warriors fall in first round

    A season marred by injuries is over for the Eminence Warriors, who fell to Bellevue 64-6 in the first round of the Kentucky High School Class A playoffs.

    Bellevue scored early and often in racking up 36 first-quarter points to put the game away early.

    The Warriors got on the scoreboard in the second quarter when DeMarcus Bailey ran it in from one yard out for the team’s only touchdown.

    A 45-yard pass from Jalen Dixie to Shelby Armstrong set up the touchdown run.

  • Changing the focus


    With the end of the fall sports season I was able to focus on college sports a little this weekend.

    After traveling to the Kentucky Horse Park for the State cross country meet on Saturday I headed to Commonwealth Stadium where I ‘enjoyed’ watching the Kentucky Wildcats play the Missouri Tigers with another old retiree, Terry Petree.

  • Redhounds down Wildcats 24-10

    Despite home-field advantage and giving their all, Henry County fell to Corbin, 24-10, in the first round of the Kentucky High School Class 3A playoffs.

    The Wildcats started strong and held a 10-3 advantage at halftime but could not keep the offense moving in the second half as Corbin rallied for the right to advance to the second round to play district rival Wayne County.

  • Logsdon competes in first state...

    Henry County High School sophomore Josh Logsdon competed in his first state cross country meet on Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park and finished the Class 2A meet in the middle of the pack at 135th out of 215 runners. Logsdon’s time was 19:14 on the moderately difficult state meet 5k course.

    Buchanan, a 1979 graduate of Henry County High School and a 1983 graduate of Centre College died in May 2011.

  • Dream Season ends in Semis

    The Eminence High School volleyball team’s dream season ended on October 30 when they fell to an athletic Oldham County Lady Colonels’ team 3-0. Oldham County went on to defeat North Oldham 3-1 to take the regional championship and move on to the state tournament to be held at Valley High School November 8-10.

    The Warriors, who finished the season with a 22-3 record found the Lady Colonels’ size and athleticism too much to overcome but gave it a game effort.

  • Logsdon qualifies for state meet

    The Henry County cross country team traveled to Louisville Saturday to compete in the Region 3 Class 2A meet at Champions Park. Sophomore Josh Logsdon came through with a personal best time to qualify for the state meet.

    Coach Ricky Drawbaugh had prepared the runners for a flat course and let them know what it would take to get to regional. “I told the boys it would probably take 18 flat to qualify for state and Sydney would need 22:30.”

  • Warriors finish strong

    The Eminence Warriors football team traveled to Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon to take on the Oyler Hatmakers and ran into a team facing similar circumstances.

    The Hatmakers were caught short-handed by a rash of injuries as the Warriors welcomed back their top running back Shelby Armstrong who had missed the last game and a half with a knee injury.

    The Warriors scored early and often as they racked up 30 first quarter points and then watched as their young teammates got some valuable varsity experience.
