  • HC girls' soccer team falls...

    After a nine-day break from the soccer pitch, the Lady Cats took to the field again, this time with an improved defense.

    Henry County traveled to Louisville last week to take on Pleasure Ridge Park. The Lady Cats’ defense improved in this game but they could not find their shooting shoes as they fell 3-0.

    The Lady Panthers first struck with about 15 minutes gone when a shot just got by Lady Cat goalkeeper Sophie Hughes. Hughes managed to get a hand to the ball but it only slowed it down as the ball rolled into the goal.

  • EMS now 6-1


    Eminence Middle School traveled to Paris Middle School on Sept 13, and found themselves down at the half, 20-14.

    After making some halftime adjustments, Eminence took the third quarter kickoff, used up almost the entire 3rd quarter on a grinding, time-consuming drive and took the lead for good, 22-20. Scoring in the first half for Eminence was defensive end Noah Mudd on a 9-yard fumble return.

    The Friends for Michael 5k run/walk was held Saturday. The run/walk, which began in front of Henry County High School, went out to the Henry County Fairgrounds and back to the high school where it finished on the track.

  • Eminence falls to Oyler in home...

    After opening the season 3-0 on the road, the Eminence Warriors opened at home.

    But the Warriors’ road form didn’t help at home as they fell to Cincinnati Oyler 30-21.

    Eminence led until the final minute of the game.

    On 4th-and-10 with 53 seconds to go from their own 28-yard line, Oyler used their final timeout to set up one more play. After the break, Oyler struck on a 72-yard pass play to take the lead.

    In the first volleyball matchup of the season between cross-county rivals, adrenaline and nerves mixed together to produce some great moments and some that both teams would like to forget.

    In the end, the Henry County Lady Cats came out on top at home against the Eminence Warriors 3-1. While the scores of each game were close, at least three of the games seemed headed for blowout city before the trailing team rallied to make it close.

  • Peyton Takes first at NCKC


    MacKenzie Peyton shot a 1-over-par 72 to win the North Central Kentucky Conference golf tournament held at the Henry County Country Club on Sept. 11. Peyton’s score, which equaled her score in the Henry County Invitational, helped the Lady Cats to a runner-up finish behind Owen County.

  • Rockets stymie Cats

    The Henry County defense shone again, despite a 21-0 loss on the road at Shelby County. Unfortunately, the Rockets defense was strong, too.

    The Wildcats’ defense played well all night, forcing 4 fumbles and holding the Rockets’ potent offense scoreless in the first half and to just two offensive touchdowns on the night. In their previous three games, the Rockets had notched no less than 28 points.
