  • Sharp Shooters headed back to...

    After finishing ninth place at the National Rifle Association’s International Youth Hunter Education Challenge last August in Pennsylvania, the Henry County Sharp Shooters are headed back to nationals in less than two weeks.

  • Lindsey Bevill and Vincent...

    Lindsey Bevill dominated the field and Vincent Vaughn squeezed past it over the weekend at the Henry County Country Club Championships.

    Bevill, a high school regional champion for Carroll County a few years back, held a six-stroke lead after the first day on Saturday, then stretched it to nine on Sunday for a 10-over-par 154. Paula McGlothin finished second at 163 and Samantha Woods — an upcoming senior at Henry County High School — was third at 166. Carolyn Adcock, who has won the club championship eight times dating back to 1999, finished tied for fifth at 170.

  • Top players back for this...

    With the top contenders back and two titles on the line, the Henry County Country Club will host its annual club championship this weekend on it’s 18-hole, par-72 golf course just north of New Castle.

    Last year’s winners — Brad Gross and Lindsey Bevill — will try to defend their titles. The 36-hole tournament, which is open to all club members, starts at 11 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday with 18 holes each day.

  • HC All-Star teams are eliminated...

    Playing with limited practice time and against tough competition, all four All-Star teams from the Henry County Youth Baseball League were eliminated after two rounds in their district tournaments.

  • A change in pace

    As a junior at Henry County with no school-affiliated soccer team to play for and no desire to attend a college, John Harp did not even contemplate the idea of enrolling in school after graduation. He never gave it much thought.

  • Stepping back down to assistant

    Suzanne Cates will be on the sideline next spring for the Henry County High School softball team, but as an assistant coach.

    Following a record-breaking year as the team’s head coach, Cates has decided to step back down to assistant — a position she held for three seasons under Jon Kasten from 2006 to 2008. She sent in her resignation letter before the season was complete, then finished the schedule. Another head coach has not been named but HCHS Athletics Director Todd Gilley said one is in mind.

  • Farmer takes trips overseas...

    Joining a training camp in Ohio last month, followed by trips to Guatemala and Honduras through the Athletes in Action Sports Ministry program, it has been one busy summer for Larry Farmer. But it’s a summer he will not want to forget.

  • Travis Martin, No. 13, helps the...

    Sitting down during his normal pre-game routine just before the start of the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Association baseball tournament in Berea, Travis Martin was so surprised he was named to the KIAC Second-Team that he wasn’t even ready to receive his award. But, after his name was called, the Asbury College sophomore quickly put on his cleats, stood up and hurriedly walked over to receive the award.

    For the 2007 Henry County High School graduate who turned a rocky start at Asbury into landing a starting position in less than two years, it was a shocker.
