  • And away we go! Fall sports...

    This week the fall sports season really kicks into gear as all the local teams except cross country have contests scheduled.

    Once again I stare at my master schedule for the upcoming season and am filled with a mixture of excitement and wonder.

    The excitement comes from the possibilities ahead for our local teams.

    The wonder? Well, I just wonder how I’m going cover to it all.

    As usual I will depend on coaches to fill me in on away contests while I do my best to be in three places at once some evenings for home competitions.

  • 25 years of Henry County Cross...

    Friday morning as I drove to work I was formulating a column on the struggle that local cross country coaches face each year. They have to compete with so many other fall sports for athletes that it is difficult to field a full team.

    At some point, I think on the long straight stretch on highway 421 between Campbellsburg and New Castle, it dawned on me that it had been 25 years since I walked into athletic director John Roberts’ office and confidently announced that I would like to start a cross country team at Henry County.
