  • Lady Cats whip Demons; Fall to...

    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted Williamstown in their last regular season match on Oct. 16 and came away with a convincing 25-18, 25-15 victory.

    It was fitting that on senior night, coach Katie Ruff singled out her only senior Kim Barmore for her play.

    Kim definitely had her best match of the season,” Ruff said, “She was making good passes and using good judgment on when to hit. She had an all-around good match.”

    The Lady Cats and Lady Demons traded points early in the game as both teams struggled to find some consistency.

  • Wildcats come back to beat Hawks...

    The Henry County Wildcats opened district play on the road against LaRue County on Friday night and after starting slowly came back to beat the Hawks 20-14.

    The Hawks got on the board with 7:13 left before halftime on a short touchdown run after a long drive.

    On the ensuing possession the Cats started to drive down field before an interception stopped their momentum.
