  • Ladycats on top for third time this season on soccer field

    In two games last week, the Henry County girls' soccer team looked like a completely different squad with its worst game of the season in a 3-0 loss to Frankfort last Monday and one of its best games of the season in a 1-0 win over Kentucky Country Day two days later.
