    One week after a disappointing loss to district rival Gallatin County, the Henry County Lady Cats were back in action at home against Jeffersontown and took their pain out on the Lady Chargers.

    Henry County opened the game by possessing the ball in their half of the field for 90 percent of the game using intricate passing and unselfish play to make it 4-0 within the first 12 minutes of the game.

  • Hensley makes the cut


    Henry County freshman golfer Maddie Hensley has been to the state tournament in Bowling Green for the past three years but has never been able to make it into the second round. This year Hensley met her goal for qualifying for a second day of golf when she shot an 80 on the first day.

    Hensley, who started on the tenth hole, opened with two pars to get off to a good start before running into trouble on the next three holes.

    A three-putt on 12, a short tee shot on 13 and a long approach shot on 14 led to three straight bogeys.

    The Wildcats made it 13-0 in the second quarter when Bodie Clark, returning from a two-game absence due to a foot injury, ran into the end zone from 10-yards out and Andrew Nix kicked the extra point.
