    Sports editor

    Becoming the first high school boys’ soccer team from the county will be no easy task, but one the Wildcats are up for as the season fast approaches.

    Following in the footsteps of the girls’ soccer team — which started last fall with junior varsity and continous this season with varsity — the boys will field a high school squad for the first time at Henry County High School. Each of these players are diving head first into varsity action, and are making history along the way.

    What lay heaviest on the minds of New Castle firefighters responding to a fire in the roof of Simpson Masonic Lodge #189, at 35 North Main Street, was the fire’s potential to spread to an entire block of adjoining older buildings.

    At 1:36 p.m. last Thursday, dispatchers at Kentucky State Police Post 5 put out the call that flames could be seen coming from the back of a building on Main Street in New Castle.

    The New Castle Volunteer Fire Department responded just moments later.

    Sports editor

    When Steve Dent came out for the first day of golf practice July 15, he noticed his players were shooting well — way better than the same time last year, Dent said. Apparently, the players took it upon themselves to improve their game in the off-season, which is already showing in early-season matches.

    During the first week of practice in mid-July, coach Scott McClamroch was a little worried about the upcoming cross country season — his turnout was lower than expected and some of his top runners were not in the shape he was hoping they would be in. But by the end of the month, after the long-distance specialists started trickling in as school drew near, McClamroch was pleased with the numbers and the direction his program was headed.

    When Steve Frommeyer hosted the annual senior dinner at his home last week, he could not believe the number of players that were there — forks and knives in hand ready to gorge on the traditional steak and sides.

  • Thank you for a job well done

    This is just a note of appreciation for the good job done by the fire departments that responded to the recent fire in New Castle. I would also like to say thanks to the La Grange Fire Department for helping out with preventing the devastating loss of the whole block of buildings.

  • Fall Sports Preview: Ladycats return talented players from district champs

    Sports editor

    Following in the footsteps of Henry County volleyball team’s record-breaking season — when the Ladycats won a school record 19 matches and claimed their first district title in school history — won’t be an easy task, but it makes it a little easier with a majority of those same players back in the lineup.

  • Fall Sports Preview: Ladycats ready for another record-breaking season

    Sports editor

    The Henry County girls’ golf team will juggle its schedule this year to go against more stiff competition, be eligible to play in the 8th Region All “A” Classic for the first time and make the switch from the 6th Region to the 5th Region in post-season action. But the squad will basically be the exact same team from last year’s recording-breaking group, just a year wiser, a year stronger and a year better.
