  • 25 years of Henry County Cross...

    Friday morning as I drove to work I was formulating a column on the struggle that local cross country coaches face each year. They have to compete with so many other fall sports for athletes that it is difficult to field a full team.

    At some point, I think on the long straight stretch on highway 421 between Campbellsburg and New Castle, it dawned on me that it had been 25 years since I walked into athletic director John Roberts’ office and confidently announced that I would like to start a cross country team at Henry County.

    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.
