  • Wildcats lead hoops highlights

    The 2013-14 high school basketball season is over for our local teams and it’s time to look back at the highlights of the season.

    The top highlight had to be the Henry County Wildcats’ run to the regional tournament that included a three-point win over Gallatin County and a heartbreaking last second loss to Owen County in the championship game.

    I think the loss to Owen says more about the Cats than their win against Gallatin.

  • School spirit is alive and well...

     

    We older folks like to talk about the good old days when things were better. For instance, we like to talk about how the crowds were better for sporting events and school spirit was better. We like to talk about how kids these days have too many distractions that keep them from being invested in their school. We like to talk about the lack of pride that kids have in their schools and their sports teams.

  • Colonels end Cats' season

     

    The Henry County Wildcats’ dream game turned into a nightmare because of an 11-0 run by the Oldham County Colonels that spanned the end of the third quarter and the first 49 seconds of the fourth quarter in the opening round of the 8th Region basketball tournament on Friday night.

  • Breaking the Rule

    One of the first things you learn in Journalism 101 is that when reporting a story you must stay objective. How do I know this since I never took a journalism class in my life? Brad told me. He’s our news editor and a real journalist, and he is always talking about objectivity in reporting.

  • Wildcats squeak by Gallatin

    The Henry County Wildcats took on the Gallatin County Wildcats in the first round of the 31st District tournament on Feb. 26 and came out with a 51-48 win in overtime to advance to the 8th Region Tournament.

    The Wildcats got good free throw shooting in overtime and some clutch baskets from substitutes Dakota Estes and Nacona Jeffries to pull out a tough come-from-behind win.

    The Wildcats led at halftime by a score of 21-16 but Gallatin County came roaring back to take an eight-point lead with 1:52 left in the third period.
