    A year after starting a junior varsity soccer program from the ground up at Henry County High School, the girls’ team is preparing to move on to the next level.

    For the first time in school history, a varsity soccer game was played Tuesday night when the Ladycats traveled to Whitefield Academy, and the memory-making Cats will follow with a complete 11-game schedule and post-season action.

    As expected, the first leg of this year’s Kentucky Association 5K Running Series drew in some of the top runners from across the state as they vied for prize money and bragging rights at the West Louisville Appreciation 5K Run July 26.

    With the first full school year starting since the construction of the Henry County Fieldhouse, the new building located behind the middle school is definitely getting used by the high school’s programs, HCHS Athletics Director Todd Gilley said in a recent phone interview.

    While thousands of athletes from around the world are converging on China for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, which started Aug. 8 and last until Aug. 24, I am reminded of a time when Eminence almost left its own mark at the Olympic games. Only bad luck and ill-timed injuries could stop the small Henry County town from showcasing to the entire world what it had proudly produced — the lightning fast Jim Green who once ran the streets of Eminence and was close to leaving his mark among the greatest athletes in the world on the biggest stage.

    In an attempt to insure the best athletes and teams from around the state qualify for the state championships, the Kentucky High School Athletic Association recently realigned the cross country and track regions, changed the state qualifying process for cross country and might do the same for track. The juggled alignment, which will start during the 2008-09 school year, left teams switching regions all across Kentucky.

  • I'm all smiles

    Man, it sure is hard to stop smiling. It’s something that happens to me this same time every four years. I’m not sure what to call it. Maybe Olympicitis, acute sportsmania, or Olympic fever. The symptoms are simple: uncontrollable shaking, constant cold chills, sore cheek bones, nervousness and an intense desire to play every sport imaginable.

    During the program’s first out-of-state competition, the Henry County Sharp Shooters finished ninth at the National Rifle Association’s annual International Youth Hunter Education Challenge last week in Mansfield, Pa. It was an impressive finish for a young team without much experience going up against the best squads from around the country.
