  • 2014-15 Basketball Season Review

    The 2014-15 basketball season is in the history books and it was a mixed bag of highs and lows for local teams. 

  • Winter storm delays tournament

    Remember January? Very little snow, mild temperatures? Ring a bell? 

    By the end of that month we were beginning to think that predictions of a bad winter were way off. And then February and early March happened.

    Does anyone remember the last time an entire week of basketball was cancelled across most of the state? It happened the week before the district tournament.

    But fear not, if you wish to make your picks on paper, we will still have brackets available in the paper and you can still pick up a bracket at our office.

    After starting the season 9-2 and going on a five-game winning streak to start April, the Henry County Wildcats’ baseball team hit a rough patch. They started last week with losses to district rival Gallatin County and conference rival Walton-Verona. Add in a loss to Bullitt Central and the Wildcats had their first three-game losing streak of the season. But they got back on track with a 7-1 win over Seneca Friday night.

    Former Henry County High School basketball player Derek Jeffries recently finished his second year at Transylvania University where he plays on the Pioneers’ basketball team while majoring in accounting.

    Jeffries’ college basketball career got off to a dismal start when he suffered a serious injury in the last open gym before basketball practices started in October of his freshman year.

    Jeffries broke his tibia and fractured his tibial plateau at the top of the tibia near the knee.

    Rain led to a dearth of games for the Henry County Lady Cats last week as their district matchup with Carroll County was postponed on April 20 and their scheduled games for Saturday in the Lady Wolverine Classic were washed out.

    That left only a matchup with the host Western Hills Lady Wolverines on Friday night.
