    The Henry County Local sports “department” is about to be overwhelmed by the fall sports season. The “staff” is going into its third year of covering the local high school teams and it is still daunting to said “staff” to think of all the games of the 10 or so sports teams that the “staff” has to cover.

  • Woods giving back to his school


    Many successful homegrown athletes leave Henry County and never look back. Zach Woods, however, returned home after a highly successful academic and athletic career at Centre College to do what others in the community had done for him.

    Woods, who graduated from Henry County High School in 1992, was a two-sport star for the Wildcats. He was a four-year varsity letterman in football as well as being a three-year varsity letterman for the basketball team. He was named the Ross Wallace Male Athlete of the Year in his junior and senior years.

  • Inspiration abounds

    Inspiration abounds for the old guy

    A few weeks ago I mentioned that a couple of stories I did on local athletes combined with the pain I experienced refereeing some middle school basketball games had motivated me to get back on my bike and start exercising again.

    Well, almost a month later I have ridden about 10 times with most of the rides being only 10 miles long.

    At this point I’m sure some of you are thinking, “Only 10 miles. Are you kidding?”

  • Barrows steps down


    Stephanie Barrows, who took over the EHS volleyball program five years ago and rebuilt it almost from scratch, has resigned.

    Barrows led the team from a record of 3-20 in her first year in 2009 to a record of 22-3 last year when the Warriors reached the semifinals of the regional tournament.
