  • Never-say-die Cats rally in the...

    It was a game that looked to be all but over, just four innings in.

    The “never say die” Henry County Wildcats found themselves down 8-0 after four innings and had yet to shut down the mighty North Oldham hitting machine even for an inning in the second round of the 8th Region baseball tournament.
