    Looking back at the 2017 high school spring sports, it is easy to pick the team with the best performance.

    The Henry County Lady Cats won their third consecutive 31st District title with a thrilling 10-9 win over Owen County in the district tournament finals. That win marked the Lady Cats’ 25th consecutive district win over three seasons.

    The last time Henry County’s softball team lost a game to a district opponent was to Gallatin County in the 2014 district finals.

  • Even the Cubbies go through...

    Baseball can be a funny game. I don’t mean “haha” funny. I mean strange, fickle, weird and exasperating.

    Good teams can go through stretches where nothing seems to go right. Take the Chicago Cubs for instance. They sit at two games below .500 so far this year with practically the same team that won the World Series last year. They are only third in their division behind second place St. Louis and first place Milwaukee.
