  • Lady Cats sending two to State


    For the second year in a row, Henry County High School will send two girls’ golfers to the state tournament.

    The young team made a strong showing at Monday’s regional golf tournament at Jefferson County’s Long Run Golf Course.

    Sophomore Mackenzie Peyton shot an 80 to take 3rd place overall and earn a qualifying spot in the state tournament in Bowling Green Oct. 2-3.

  • Cats fall as offense struggles

    The Henry County Wildcats are finding a familiar theme: good defense and a struggling offense equals valiant efforts in losing causes.

    The Wildcats again played tough against a bigger foe but could not hold on in the second half as the offense produced just 7 points one week after being shut out by 5A Shelby County.

    Sometimes Goliath wins.

    This time Goliath was 5A Bullitt Central who defeated the Cats 21-7.

    Bullitt Central got strong running from sophomore Trevor Carnell in the second half to control the ball and score.

  • Warriors rebound at Berea

    When they travelled to Berea Friday night, the Eminence Warriors were still smarting from the win that got away against Cincinnati-Oyler.

    But the Warriors learned some lessons from that game as they blew a lead but recovered for a comeback win of their own against the Pirates.

    Demarcus Bailey leapt high against tight coverage in the end zone to snare a pass from Justin Mitchell for the 2-point conversion, sealing the victory with just over a minute left in the game. This after Bailey caught a 65-yard, 3rd-and-10 Mitchell pass to tie the game at 36.

  • Warriors rout Gallatin

    A slow start turned into a rout for the Eminence Warriors as they hosted Gallatin County.

    The Warriors went on to win the match, 25-19, 25-17 and 25-13.

    Gallatin County jumped out to a 5-2 lead in the first game as the Warriors were aced, hit into the net and then called for a rotation fault.

  • Lady Cats fall to Titans in up and down match

    The real winner between the Henry County and Collins High School volleyball teams was the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
    The two teams used their Sept. 19 game as a chance to raise money for the organization, and combined to raise $2,769.46.
    Players from both schools accepted donations around school for one week, starting on Sept.12, and a chain was built with each link representing 50 cents. Before the game the schools hung their chains around the Collins gym.
