  • Henry County double header moved...

    Henry County High School's double header against Owen County scheduled for Friday night has been moved to Saturday due to the weather, HCHS Athletics Director Todd Gilley said.

Saturday's games will keep the same scheduled starting times with the boys' game playing at 6 p.m. and the girls' game playing at 7:30 p.m. at Roy L. Winchester Gym. There will also be two junior varsity games being played at the same time in the smaller gym, Gilley said.
