    The Lady Rebels’ Shelby Power was the individual runner-up and led her team to a score of 330. Henry County’s team score was 375, as 6th grader Maddie Hensley shot 85 and freshman Cheyenne Clark shot 103 to join Peyton on the All-Conference team.

  • Rockets stymie Cats

    The Henry County defense shone again, despite a 21-0 loss on the road at Shelby County. Unfortunately, the Rockets defense was strong, too.

    The Wildcats’ defense played well all night, forcing 4 fumbles and holding the Rockets’ potent offense scoreless in the first half and to just two offensive touchdowns on the night. In their previous three games, the Rockets had notched no less than 28 points.

    The script for the Henry County Wildcats’ second home game couldn’t have been more different from the first game.
