  • HCHS boys soccer team ends tough season with heads up despite record

    A 1-10 record is rarely taken well in any sport.

    But that’s where the Henry County Boys’ soccer team found itself at the end of the 2011 season.

    But instead of hanging their heads or bemoaning their lack of success, the team was upbeat.

    “It was a tough year,” head coach Rob Powars said. “I was worried that they were going to get down on themselves. But they tried to keep it pretty light. They knew how it was going to go.”

  • Henry wraps up regular season

    With 15 minutes to go in their game against Owen County, Henry County girls’ soccer coach Shannon Snider put Victoria Paynter and Emily Veigh up front, and told them go have fun.

    They did.

    On senior night, the two combined for a total of six of the team’s seven goals, and fellow senior Katie Setters chipped in a third as the Ladycats defeated Owen County 7-0.

    “They were pretty emotionally pumped up,” Snider said. “It was our best game this season.”

  • Ladycats sweep series

    It was the third game of the rematch. Eminence and Henry County were tied 22-22.

    In a gym that was buzzing from start to finish, the two volleyball teams went head to head for nearly 90 minutes. This was it — the Warriors chance to get revenge after falling to the Ladycats earlier in the season.

    A long set out gave Henry County a point. 23-22.

    A panic play gives the Ladycats another point. 24-22.

  • Peyton, Vaughn head to state

    For the second year in a row, MacKenzie Peyton is headed to the state golf tournament.

Shelby County’s Jordan Webb, a close friend of Peyton’s, shot the tournament low of 71; Mercy’s Chau Tran shot a 75; Sacred Heart’s Katie Page shot a 76, as did Oldham County’s Meghan Theiss; Peyton shot a 79, as did Sacred Heart’s Mattie Hamilton; and Vaughn shot an 82.

  • Warriors stymie Raiders revenge quest

    From their own 35 yard line, Eminence’s Bradley Foree looked to pass. But finding no receivers, he tucked the ball and plugged 20-yards up field, breaking up the attempted tackles of more than one defender.
    “God I hate that kid,” one Trimble County coach muttered in frustration
