  • Butler's career comes to an...


    The Thomas More Saints and Erick Butler have been riding high all season but Saturday they came crashing to the ground in stunning fashion when they were defeated in sudden death overtime by the Wabash College Little Giants 33-27.

    Butler, a Henry County High School graduate, was recently named the President’s Athletic conference defensive player of the year.

    The Saints were 11-0 going into Saturday’s game with Wabash and had seriously challenged by an opponent in only a couple of games all season.

  • Meet the Wildcats draws large...


    The Henry County High School basketball teams introduced themselves Nov. 18 with the second annual Meet the Wildcats night at the Henry County High School gymnasium.

    The event featured music from the Henry County High School pep band, the Henry County High School cheerleaders performing their award-winning routine, JROTC presenting the colors and Brianna Heightchew singing the national anthem.

    Before the high school teams were introduced, the Henry County Middle School girls and boys teams were introduced to the large crowd on hand.

    It’s time to look back on the 2015 fall sports season and review the highlights from this year’s action.

    Hensley qualifies for state golf tournament

    Freshman Maddie Hensley qualified for her fourth consecutive state tournament by shooting a 79 and finishing third in the regional tournament at Weissinger Hills in Shelbyville despite playing in torrential rain.

    She made a good showing in Bowling Green by tying for 31st place. It was the first time she made the cut to play on the second day.

  • Wisdom takes her game to the Big...


    Former Henry County High School multi-sport athlete Heather Wisdom has taken a winding path since her playing days at Henry County High School. That path has taken her to New York City where she still competes on the basketball floor in recreational leagues and runs the occasional 5k.

    Wisdom played basketball and ran track and cross country at Henry County High School in the late 1990s.

  • Large or small: the rich get...

    Over the last four years I have witnessed hundreds of high school sporting events and the one impression that always sticks in my mind is the vast amount of difference in talent levels and performance among high school teams – even among schools placed in size classifications such as football and track.

    I have witnessed teams that performed so poorly that the sport they were playing was almost unrecognizable.

    I would walk away and say to myself, “That has to be the worst team in the state.”

  • HCMS wins conference tournament


    The Henry County Middle School eighth-grade middle school team won the North Central Kentucky Conference basketball tournament Saturday. The Wildcats’ three wins in the tournament are part of a five-game winning streak that started with wins over Eminence and East Oldham on Thursday and Friday.

  • Golden Lions edge Wildcats, 12-6


    The Henry County Wildcats’ first round playoff game with Garrard County looked like a tough, even matchup on paper and it turned out to be just that Friday night as the host Wildcats lost a heartbreaker to the Golden Lions.

    Henry County was unable to take advantage of good field position early in the contest.

  • Thompson runs at state CC meet


    Henry County High School’s Janey Thompson competed in her second consecutive cross country state championship Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Thompson, a ninth-grader, completed the five-kilometer course in 22:08 despite suffering from shin splints and tight hamstrings.

  • Warriors fall to Tigers in...


    The Eminence Warriors had the undesirable task of traveling to Beechwood Friday night to face the Class A powerhouse in the first round of the football playoffs and came out on the short end of a 62-0 score.

    Beechwood scored on their opening drive after just four plays. After a Warrior turnover the Tigers scored again to make it 14-0 just minutes into the game.

    The Warriors then put together a five-minute drive that reached the Beechwood 6-yard line before it stalled out.
