  • Henry County Wildcats Thirtieth...

    New Castle, Ky - Saturday night, at the Henry County gym, the Henry County Wildcats won the 30th District Championship by defeating the Shelbyville Devils, 69-65, in a hard-fought final game of the tournament.

  • Looking back

    To find out the last time the Henry County boys’ basketball team won a district championship — before this past year’s team claimed the 31st District crown — you have to search back 40 years, to 1971.
    The Wildcats beat the now-defunct Shelbyville Devils, 69-65, in the finals, thanks to a 25-point fourth-quarter performance from the Cats and 31 points from sharp shooter Mike West. It was all written about in the March 11, 1971 edition of the Henry County Local.

    Springate has decided to back away from the program, effective Monday morning. Assistant coach Rick Schepman hosted practice on Monday, and the Wildcats are in need of a new head coach for this coming school year.

  • Record holder headed to...

    After leaving his mark behind at Henry County High School, Eric Phillips has decided to run cross-country and track at the University of the Cumberlands.

    Phillips, who graduated from HCHS earlier this month, picked the Patriots over Brescia University and Lindsey Wilson. The runner lowered two school records at Henry — 5,000 meters in cross-country, and 1,600 meters in track — during an impressive senior campaign that capped off one of the best-ever high school running careers in the county.

    Allen County-Scottsville won the state softball tournament on June 11 in Owensboro, and one week later Central Hardin won the baseball title in Lexington.
