  • Hoopla time is here again

    Monday morning after Selection Sunday is always my favorite morning of the year — time to pencil in those picks, which I’m certain are going to be 100-percent accurate with each guess. I nod with satisfaction as I scribble in teams to the right.

    Yes, it has arrived again.

  • Oldham County wins 8th Region...

    A packed gym inside Henry County High School watched the Oldham County Colonels handle Spencer County with ease last Tuesday night in the boys’ 8th Region championship game, winning 70-50 to claim the title and advance to the state tournament.

    Spencer was going after its first-ever trip to state, but instead Oldham will be making its 14th. Former Henry County coach Jason Holland earned his first ticket to the state tournament, and Oldham will be there for the first time since 2007.

  • Justin Hartlage headed to...

    Henry County High School’s most productive wide receiver of all time who was also the top receiver in Class 3-A this season has decided on a college, picking Kentucky Wesleyan to continue his football career.

    Henry County senior Justin Harlage narrowed his list to just three schools — Kentucky Wesleyan, Pikeville College and Union College — and in the end went with the Panthers. He made it official with a signing inside the high school’s Media Room on Friday.

  • Henry golfer commits to St....

    Trent Lucas didn’t give playing golf in college much thought until Willie and Kathy Peyton told him it was an option this past fall — now the Henry County senior has signed with the St. Catharine College Patriots.

    Willie is the boys’ coach at HCHS, his wife Kathy is the girls’ coach, and both are familiar with St. Catharine coach Joan Rizer and her program. They talked to Lucas about playing for the Patriots, and he ended up taking that route versus attending Eastern University or Georgetown College and not playing golf.

  • Oldham ends Henry’s run

    Ending the season in dramatic fashion, the Henry County boys’ basketball team was close to advancing to the 8th Region tournament championship game but instead took a 34-32 loss to Oldham County in the semifinals on Monday night.

    The host Wildcats led for more than 29 of the 32-minute game, and were in front by 10 points with less than one minute remaining in the third quarter. But the Colonels, led by former Henry coach Jason Holland, closed the gap thanks to a 10-0 spurt in the final quarter and went ahead for good with 2:55 left in the game.

  • Wildcats beat Collins to advance...

    The Henry County Wildcats continued their postseason run last Wednesday night, dominating Collins for much of the game in a 52-49 win to advance to the semifinals of the 8th Region tournament.

    The Wildcats won their first district championship since 1971 one week earlier, and then started regional play with a win in the first-ever meeting against newly-formed Collins. The visiting Titans ended their inaugural season with an 18-12 record and an early exit in the postseason, while the Wildcats improved to 17-14 and continued on to the next round.

  • Oh so close for Cats

    And just like that, it was over.

    The Wildcats led for all but 2:55 of the game. They were ahead by as much as 10 points. They were patient most of the night. They scratched. They clawed. This was a game the Cats wanted to win so badly.

    In what was shaping into a potentially historic run, it was a game nobody in Henry County wanted to miss. The crowds started to flood the doors just after 5 p.m., and by the 6:30 tip-off time it was jam-packed. And everyone got what they came for — a good game — even if it didn’t go in Henry’s favor.
