    The Henry County Wildcat soccer team hosted the Owen County Rebels on Sept. 23 in an important district matchup. The Wildcats got off to a fast start and cruised to a 4-2 win.

    Gavin Jameson showed off a variety of skills in the early going as he dribbled around players, outran defenders and used his height to win headers but he couldn’t get the elusive first goal in the opening 15 minutes.

    Jameson had five shots, three of which were on goal by the 25-minute mark.

    The Henry County Lady Cat soccer team faced a tough situation in a critical week and found a way to get the job done as they beat district rivals Owen County and Carroll County last week.

    The Lady Cats lost top scorer Rachel Vegh for a couple of weeks when she injured her knee in the Oldham County game. The Lady Cats then lost Savannah Medley to a fractured foot in practice just a couple of days later. To top it off, another forward, Tierra Allison injured her knee in the early stages of the team’s game against Owen County.

    The Wildcats put the game away early with four touchdowns in the first period and one in the second to lead 35-0 going into the locker room.

    After playing the first nine holes of the NCKC tournament held at Sugar Bay Golf Course in Warsaw on Sept. 23, Henry County senior MacKenzie Peyton was in jeopardy of losing her first NCKC title in four years. Peyton was six over after the first seven holes.

    But she pulled her game together in the final 12 holes and had five birdies and seven pars to finish at one-over 72 and take her fourth consecutive North Central Kentucky Conference title by two strokes over her eighth-grade teammate Maddie Hensley, who had her best round of the year.

    After waiting for more than 30 minutes for all the other golfers in the NCKC tournament to finish, Alex Hadden stepped to the tee box on the first hole at Sugar Bay Golf Course in Warsaw on Sept. 23 for the most important tee shot of his young life. Hadden had tied with Justin Trusty of Owen County for the lead after 18 holes and was now in a sudden death playoff for the NCKC individual title.

  • Upcoming election too important to miss

     In just about a month, voters in Kentucky will take center stage in America. 

    The entire country is watching the McConnell-Grimes senatorial race, and I hope we don’t embarrass ourselves. 

    Sadly, voter turnout is notoriously low in parts of Kentucky, Henry County being no exception. If one-third of all registered voters actually make it to the polls, it is considered a strong turnout. I think we can do better than that.
