  • Lady Cats down Rebels


    The Henry County Lady Cats had a busy week on area golf courses starting Aug. 25 at Sugar Bay in Warsaw where they took on Williamstown and Gallatin County.

    Coach William Peyton was pleased that his team played well there because it is the site of this year’s NCKC tournament. Gallatin and Williamstown did not have full teams at the match but the Lady Cats shot one of their lowest totals of the season with a score of 172.

  • Wildcats lose to Rebels


    The Henry County Wildcat golf team hosted the Owen County Rebels on Aug. 26 and lost 162 to 199 on a hot muggy day that required coaches to allow water breaks in the shade. The heat index on the course was near 100 degrees according to coach Steve Galyon.

    Alex Hadden led the team scoring for the Cats with a 39. Isaac Klempner followed with a 48. Adam Kent carded a 55. Jakob Buckley and Dustin Love both shot 57. Connor Lyons shot 60 but did not figure in the scoring.

  • Eastern rolls past Cats


    The Henry County Wildcat soccer team traveled to Louisville on Aug. 25 to play the Eastern Colonels and lost 11-1.

    “We played with them in spots,” Coach Bobby Jameson said. “They were pretty talented and handled the ball extremely well. Once they got inside the 18-yard box they were unstoppable.

    Eastern scored nine goals in the first half.

    “We came out and played a lot better in the second half,” Jameson said. “D.J. Aneszko scored five minutes into the second half.”

  • Warriors take 2 of 3 in opening...


    The Eminence Warrior volleyball team got off to a rough start in their home opener on Aug. 18 as they fell to the Kentucky Country Day Bearcats 2-0.

    Both teams struggled for consistency in the opening minutes of the first game and could not string together a significant run of points. The game seesawed back and forth until at 17-17 KCD put together 6-0 run to take a commanding lead.

    From there the warriors managed only one more point and KCD closed out a 25-18 win with a service ace.

  • Wildcats outlast Rockets


    It was a game only a night owl or a Wildcat fan could love on Friday night at Henry County High School.

    As with many games across the state, lightening delays pushed the scheduled start time of the game between the Henry County Wildcats and the Shelby County Rockets back two hours.

    When play finally got under way the Wildcats dominated the first half and then held on to win 16-14.

  • Warriors fall to Caverna


    The Eminence Warriors’ game with Caverna on Friday night turned into a nightmare as the weather played havoc with the time schedule.

    “The heat was even worse down there than it was up here,” Coach Paul McDowell said. “The game was very stop-start because the officials had to put in several water breaks. Then the lightening hit and we had to stop play.”

    Caverna scored first on a long pass play to go up 6-0.

  • Lady Cats down Spencer


    The Henry County Lady Cat soccer team traveled to Taylorsville on Aug. 19 to open the 2014 season against the Spencer County Lady Bears and came away with a 2-1 victory over a team they had never beaten before.

    The home team scored a goal in the first half and went into halftime clinging to the narrow margin but the Lady Cats came out for the second half and opened up the Lady Bears for two goals.

    The Lady Cats made a lineup change at halftime due to an injury to defensive sweeper Justice Kirk.

  • Wildcats pounce on Gallatin...


    The Henry County Wildcats opened their season at Spencer County on Aug. 19 against the Spencer County Bears and trailed at halftime 2-1. But the game was suspended when there was an electrical failure and it became too dark to continue. The remainder of the game will be rescheduled at a later date.

    That made the Wildcats second game on Aug. 21 at district rival Gallatin County their first official game of the season. The Wildcats established themselves as district title contenders with a convincing 5-1 victory.
