  • Rumbling through the Jungle

    It’s one of the biggest meets each cross country season. The Rumble in the Jungle at North Oldham draws some of the top runners and teams from around the state.

    Against some of those top runners, the Henry County cross country team turned in performances that pleased their coaches.

    “We had several runners set personal bests in this meet. Some by as much as a minute or more,” coach Victoria Michels said.

  • EHS spikes Western

    In a typical year, Portland Christian would be an easy volleyball win for the Eminence Warriors.

    So it was, perhaps, a bit easy for the Warriors to think they might be able to hold back a little.

    Eminence coach Stephanie Barrows believes her team went into their match against Portland with past performances on their mind, and the team held back. As a result, they fell 25-23, 25-19.

  • Despite loss, Henry shows guts...

    For one set, it looked like the Henry County Lady Cats were heading for a straight-sets loss at Carroll County.

    But the Lady Cats showed some intestinal fortitude and took the third game 27-25.

    Carroll then regained their composure and took game 4 to win the match.

  • Lady Cats drop three in busy...

    Against one of the top teams in the state, the Henry County Lady Cats held their own for a few minutes Monday night.

    But the well-oiled, experienced Oldham County Lady Colonels hit their first goal 5:30 into the game, and the onslaught continued for the next 10 minutes as Oldham sliced the Henry defense apart with solid passing and pinpoint shots.

  • Grueling week wears down soccer...

    Five games in six days took its toll on the Henry County boys’ soccer team.

    After a day of rest on Sunday the Cats came home to play Spencer County. The Bears scored their first goal at the 33:45 mark from about five yards out. Spencer continued to attack and added two more quick goals and led 3-0 with 29:10 remaining in the first half.

    The Cats started getting into the game and had more possession after the third goal. Gavin Jameson had a good opportunity from 18 yards out that went off the crossbar at 23:30.

  • Lady Cats win over Panthers

    Playing again without their top golfer, the Henry County Lady Cats rolled past Carroll County on Sept. 4 217 to 247.

    Sixth grader Maddie Hensley led the way with a 44. Freshman Cheyenne Clark shot 46, sixth grader Nikki Perkinson shot 62,  and sixth grader Claire Young shot 65. Playing but not figuring in the team scoring were sixth graders Haley Peyton and Tori Williams, who shot 66 and 72 respectively.

  • Wildcats fall to Gallatin

    The Henry County Wildcats’ golf team came up short against the Wildcats from Warsaw last week, 215-200.

    Fifth grader Isaac Klempner led the Cats with a score of 46. Fifth grader Alex Hadden shot 47, eighth grader Dillon Allen shot 60, seventh grader Tyler Tingle shot 62 and 9th grader Shayne Strong shot 64.

  • Warriors soar over Hawks, now 3-0

    The Eminence Warriors made it three in a row on the road Thursday night with a 44-6 victory over Riverview East Academy of Cincinnati. The Warriors opened up a 14-0 lead on the Hawks and never looked back on their way to a 3-0 record.

    Brandon Mitchell got the Warriors started early in the first quarter when he intercepted a Riverview pass and returned it for a 31-yard touchdown. DeMarcus Bailey ran three yards for the 2-point conversion to make it 8-0.

    Later in the quarter Bradley Foree scored on a 12-yard run but the conversion failed and the Warriors led 14-0.

  • Panthers down Wildcats

    In a rematch of a game that took place just 10 days before the score came out nearly the same as the Carroll County Panthers defeated the Henry County Wildcats 7-1 in boys’ soccer action.

    But Coach Bobby Jameson felt that he got a much better performance from his team in circumstances that were less than ideal. The Wildcats had three yellow cards very early in the game, which hampered their ability to play physical soccer. The Panthers were awarded a penalty kick just 1:30 into the game, which, they converted, for a 1-0 lead.

  • Wildcat clawed by Bearcats 2-0

    The Walton-Verona buzz saw struck again, this time setting the Henry County Lady Cats in its sights.

    On Aug. 29, Henry County hosted the Lady Bearcats, who were on a 2-0 tear after falling to Trimble County in the All A Classic. After that loss, Walton ripped through Carroll and Gallatin Counties before heading to New Castle.
