  • Frommeyer gets credit for win 200

    Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed my time out of state in Gatlinburg last week, which was a needed vacation as my first real get-away in nearly two years. But I missed a whole lot while I was gone: I didn’t check my e-mail for six days; never got online; didn’t find out the scores of any of the local high school games; and never once tuned in to ESPN. My wife was proud — even though she got to watch the HGTV channel numerous times while we were in our cabin in downtown boonieville.

The Ladycats improved their early-season record to 3-2 with the win, while the Lady Warriors dropped to 0-5.

  • Boys' soccer team 0-2 but close to first win, coach says

    After starting last Mondays soccer game a little flat, the Henry County Wildcats turned the tables to come out aggressive in the second half which helped them play more even with host Spencer County and close the gap on the scoreboard. But in the end, after 80 hard-fought minutes, the Wildcats came up short, 5-3.

    For the Wildcats, a first-year team trying to build a program from scratch, they have started the season at 0-2 with their opening loss to Waggener the week before. Henry played much better the second time out, especially in its second-half turnaround.
