    The Henry County Wildcats hosted Owen County in a district matchup Friday night and were the victims of poor transition defense as they fell to the Rebels by a score of 71-54.

    “We played well in the half court but their transition points margin was exactly the margin of the final score,” Coach Enoch Welch. “That really was the story of the game. Their guards got too many points in transition because we got caught in the middle of the floor. We did not get back on defense fast enough.”

  • Good spirits

    When the Henry County Wildcats met the Eminence Warriors on Dec. 9 a large crowd showed up well before tipoff of the varsity game. In fact it was probably the largest crowd that many of the players involved in the junior varsity game had ever performed before.

    A large crowd is no surprise when two rivals play but this crowd seemed larger than usual. Two things could have contributed to the higher than usual turnout.

  • No Regrets

    I’m kicking myself for wimping out on making a bold prediction in my last column. I had it all written up and was ready to go with it when doubt started creeping in. The prediction was that the UK football team actually had a chance against the Louisville Cardinals.

    With a bowl trip at stake and Louisville coming off an emotional win in South Bend, I thought the Cats might actually pull off the upset. I also thought the bye week would help them get healthy and rested. Looking back with 20-20 hindsight, I realize now those were legitimate thoughts.
