    Though the baseball, softball and track seasons are now over, there were highlights aplenty.

    1.  The Henry County Lady Cats defeated the Carroll County Panthers in the district tournament to qualify for the regional tournament.

    The Lady Cats had only three seniors on this year’s team and no juniors but showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with in the future as they knocked the cover off the ball most of the season. The team had an up and down season that included a lot of good hitting and fielding miscues.

    Henry County started with a base runner when Aly Stanley reached on an error. Paige DeBurger laid down a sacrifice bunt to move her into scoring position. Krista DeBurger then hit a high line drive to deep centerfield where Oldham County centerfielder Cynthia Leaton made a running over-the-shoulder grab at the fence.

  • Lady Cats finish second in...

    The Henry County Lady Cats and the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats began their 31st district championship game on May 22, but Mother Nature would not cooperate.

    Lightening and rain suspended play after one inning with Gallatin County leading 2-0.

    Henry County went down in order on three ground balls to start the game and Gallatin scored in the bottom of the first.

    The Lady Cats avoided further damage when Madison Rabourn threw out a runner trying to score from first base on a double.
