    The Henry County Lady Cats held senior night for MacKenzie Peyton in a match with Shelby County on Sept. 10 and Peyton celebrated in style by shooting a two-under 34 on her home course.

    Peyton got off to a rocky start with a bogey on the first hole and then birdied three of the final eight holes in very windy conditions.

    Shelby County won the team competition with a score of 170 to Henry County’s 192. Madison Thomas was low scorer for the Lady Rockets with a 41.

    The Henry County Wildcat golf team hosted Trimble County on Sept. 9 and defeated the Raiders 190-217.

    Alex Hadden led the way with a 40 while Isaac Klempner was second with a 43. Jakob Beckley had a 53 and Dustin Love rounded out the team scoring with a 54.

    “Alex and Isaac continue to play well,” Coach Steve Galyon said. “I’m sure Alex wants to shoot under par and he certainly has that capability. Isaac is bringing his average down and that’s good.”

    The Henry County cross country team traveled to Goshen on Saturday to compete in North Oldham High School’s Rumble through the Jungle Invitational meet.

    The temperature at meet time was much different than in their first meet at Shelby County last week where it was hot and very humid. The cooler, drier temperatures led to vastly improved performances for the Wildcats as every varsity boy and girl improved their time significantly.

  • Fall events throughout county offer much variety

     Events are still in full swing around our area.  

    Saturday, Sept. 20 is one of my personal favorites when the bagpipers come to the Renaissance Fairgrounds.  The 2014 Central Kentucky Celtic Festival and Highland Games is a fun time for all ages.  

  • The long way can be the most rewarding

     Two summers ago my family and I turned my dad’s business trip from Michigan to Las Vegas into a ten-day vacation. My brother had to stay behind for work, so my parents and sister and I made the sixty-hour drive. Thirty hours one way is long enough to spend in the car with anyone, let alone your family, but we saved money by not flying, and rented a vehicle with decent gas mileage.

  • Taking state government into Kentucky classrooms

     Starting this week, hundreds of state legislators from across the country will begin visiting classrooms to kick off the 16th annual “America’s Legislators Back to School Program.”

    The Henry County Wildcat football team continued its winning ways with a third-consecutive win and second-consecutive blowout victory to open the season. The Wildcats did it in familiar fashion – using their power running game and their stifling defense to march to a 43-point win over Owen County.

    The scoring opened with Devin Hagen running it in from 26 yards out at the 10:15 mark of the first quarter. Jacob Buckley’s point-after attempt made it 7-0.

    The Henry County Lady Cats went into hostile territory on Sept. 2 and came away with a hard-fought 3-1 win over the host Eminence Warriors.

    The first game was close most of the way but the Lady Cats got some breathing room on a hitting error by the Warriors that made it 18-15 in favor of Henry County. From there the Lady Cats got strong net play from Megan Payton to close out the game on a 7-2 run and win 25-17. Payton had two kills and two well placed tips in the final run.

  • Lady Cats fall to Walton

    A slow start doomed the Henry County Lady Cats’ soccer team on Sept. 3 at Walton-Verona.

    The Bearcats scored just 6:30 into the match after the teams had played fairly evenly in the opening minutes. The goal came from 25 yards out on the right wing on an excellent shot from a tight angle.

    After the score Walton threatened again with 10:20 left in the half but Sophie Hughes made a nice save for the Lady Cats. Hughes would make three more saves in the closing minutes of the half to keep the Lady Cats in the game.
