  • What ifs abound for Cardinals

    The University Of Louisville football team’s game with Florida State Thursday night left me with enough what ifs running through my head to fill a column.

    So here we go.

    What if Louisville had punched in on the gift given to them by their talented wide receiver DeVante Parker on the first series? Or, what if they had taken the chip shot field goal rather than going for it on fourth down at the two?

  • Lady Cats fall to North Oldham


    The Henry County Lady Cats’ volleyball team traveled to Carroll County High School for the first round of the 8th Region volleyball tournament Oct. 27 to take on the regional favorites from North Oldham High School. The Lady Cats fell to the Lady Mustangs 25-5, 25-9, 25-13.

    Henry County seemed intimidated by the Lady Mustangs to start the match but slowly grew more confident as the match wore on. North Oldham jumped to a 9-0 lead in the first game and cruised to the win.

  • Hammond speaks to Henry County...


    University of Louisville women’s basketball player Sara Hammond visited Henry County High School Friday to speak to the Henry County High School and Middle School Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

    Hammond, a native of Rockcastle County, led her high school team to a state championship in 2011 before signing to play for the Cardinals. She was the first female player from Kentucky to be named a McDonald’s All-American. She was also a Parade and USA Today All-American.

  • Wildcats fall to E-town


    The Henry County Wildcats’ football team traveled to Elizabethtown with a number two seed in the playoffs riding on the outcome. The host Panthers came out on top with a 35-7 win.

    Henry County had a bright start when Devin Hagan returned the opening kickoff 71 yards to give the Wildcats excellent field position. But the Elizabethtown defense allowed just one yard of offense to the Cats before they turned it over on downs.

  • Dragons down Lady Cats


    The Henry County Lady Cats traveled to North Oldham High School Oct. 20 to take on South Oldham, the top team in the 8th Region.

    It was a daunting task for the Lady Cats but they gamely fought their way through the full eighty minutes, falling 9-0.

    Sophie Hughes was a busy goalkeeper and the sweat soaking her jersey on a chilly night attested to that.

    Hughes had several good saves but the Lady Dragons kept pounding away until they could get opportunities that would not allow Hughes to have a chance at saving their shots.
