    It’s time to look back at the fall sports season and pick out 5 highlights for the Eminence Warriors sports teams. All in all, it was a good year for the Warriors’ fall sports teams. They managed to win a fair number of games with young rosters. That should bode well for next year’s fall sports season.

    1. Comeback win vs. Berea

  • State golf tourney;win over...



    Picking the number 1 highlight of the HCHS fall sports season was pretty easy this year. Every high school athlete’s dream is to reach the highest level of competition-the state tournament. Despite a rough season for Henry County sports teams there were some exciting moments for some very young and inexperienced teams.

    1. Mackenzie Peyton and Maddie Hensley go to state

  • Youthful teams bode well for the...



    The theme throughout the fall season has been youthfulness.

    I know I have repeated that often in these pages over the past three months, but the numbers just don’t lie. I went through the end-of-season rosters of all 11 local sports teams and came up with a grand total of 21 seniors playing fall sports at Henry County and Eminence.

  • Paynter, Phillips seting in at...

    Eric Phillips is a 2010 graduate of Henry County High School and is a sophomore at the Cumberlands.

    Phillips is in his second year on the Patriots’ cross country team. This year, Phillips was part of the top seven runners for the Patriots which means he counted in the team scoring. Phillips set a personal record in the 8000-meter (about 5 miles) run on Sept. 15 in the Cedarville Invitational with a time of 27:34. He ran in the mid to low 28 minute range most of the season.

  • Cards end Cats' season 53-20

    The Henry County Wildcats football team traveled to Wayne County Friday night to take on the 9-1 Cardinals in the first round of the KHSAA Class 3A playoffs. The Cardinals came away with a convincing 53-20 win to move on to the second round against Louisville Central. For the Wildcats the season ended at 3-8.

    The Wildcats came out of the first quarter with a 7-6 lead but Wayne County’s balanced offense and strong defense took a toll in the second, putting the game away with 26 unanswered points.

  • From cross to the Boss

     Today’s column is going to be a bit eclectic. I want to talk about two of my favorite things: cross country and Bruce Springsteen. Some of you are already saying to yourselves; why are you going to write about a rock and roll singer in a sports column. To that I respond: be patient we’ll get to that a little later.

    Measuring success

    Cross country season ended for local athletes this week. Henry County hosted the Class AA Regional meet Saturday and, alas, did not have any runners qualify for state.

  • Warriors fall to Bellevue, 48-8

    Against a bigger, more experienced team, the Eminence Warriors held their ground for one half in the Class A Playoffs Friday night.

    But the Bellevue Tigers’ superior size and strength took a toll on the Warriors in the second half as Bellevue pulled away for a 48-8 victory. Bellevue, now 7-4, will travel to Frankfort for the second round against the 10-1 Panthers.

    Eminence’s season ends at 7-4.
