  • Wildcats make it three straight

    It might have taken the Cats a while to get rolling, but they are now picking up steam.

    After starting the season at 1-3 in Derek Springate’s first stint as the head coach, the Henry County Wildcats won three straight basketball games to improve their overall record to 4-3 and, more importantly, start 31st District play at 2-1.

    Last week, the Wildcats defeated Carroll County (50-45) on Monday night, Owen County (44-41) on Friday, and Ludlow (70-51) on Saturday in the Grant County Forcht Bank/Dry Ridge Toyota Holiday Classic.

    The Ladycats suffered their first setback of the 2009-10 season last Tuesday night against Carroll County as the Henry County High School girls’ basketball team lost 51-47.

  • Wish list to Santa

    Christmas truly is the best time, even for someone who will have no presents waiting under the Christmas tree this year. I can’t stop smiling.

  • Gilley reaches 300th W

    Last Thursday’s win over Gallatin County for the Henry County High School girls’ basketball team meant more than just another victory. It was more than a perfect 3-0 start to the season. And more than a 1-0 start in 31st District play. It also marked a milestone.

  • McKee elected to National...

    Henry County’s Jim McKee, who is the USATF President for Kentucky, was elected to the National Associations Committee at the annual USATF national meeting recently held in Indianapolis.

    McKee will work on communications. Also at the meeting, the 2009 Jesse Owens awards were given to Sanya Richards and Tyson Gay. Richards was the world champion in both the 400-meter and the 1,600-meter relay, while Gay broke the American record in the 100-meter dash twice and he had four of the top-five fastest times in the world. McKee is shown with Gay, above, during the USATF meeting.

  • Henry represented in All-Star...

    Playing for the East, Henry County High School’s Erick Butler, Chris Price and Cole Crouch were selected and played in the annual East-West All-Star football game at Southern High School on Saturday.

    The top seniors from the Louisville area competed in the contest hosted by the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association. Bullitt Central’s Mike Gossett coached the West team, Oldham County’s Matt Brown coached the East and the West won 40-20 on a cold and windy day.

  • Middle School Basketball

    Henry 34, Owen 27: The Henry County Middle School boys’ seventh-grade basketball team took to the floor against Owen County on Dec. 7 hoping to avenge a 13-point loss earlier in the season, and that’s exactly what the Cats did with a 34-27 win.

    Henry was ahead by nine points at the half, thanks to an intense defense.

  • Wildcats continue progressing on...

    Still putting the pieces together, Henry County’s first-year head coach Derek Springate and his Wildcats dropped their record to 1-3 and started 31st District play at 0-1 with a 48-36 loss at Gallatin County on Friday night.

    Afterwards, Springate said it was the best his team had played up to that point — better than Henry’s 40-37 win over Trimble County in its season opener, the 67-43 loss to Model and the 61-34 loss to Walton-Verona.

  • Metcalfe finished with torn ACL

    Rachael Metcalfe’s sophomore basketball season at Eminence High School lasted just one minute, six seconds.

    The post player went to the floor holding her knee in the season opener against Henry County on Dec. 3, just 1:06 into the county matchup. She missed the rest of that game, had to sit out the next three and was recently told she cannot play the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Eminence coach Carter Martin said Metcalfe will have surgery later this month.

  • Springate era starts with...

    Still under heavy construction, the Derek Springate era at Henry County High School officially started last Tuesday night with a 40-37 win over Trimble County.

    It continued with a 67-43 loss to Richmond Model on Thursday and a 61-34 loss to Walton-Verona on Saturday for a 1-2 start after the first week to an unpredictable season.
