  • Getting back to trick-or-treating

    Boo!!! Did I scare you? I thought three exclamation points instead of one might do the trick, but probably not. For some reason, I don’t have the same scare tactics that I used to when I would hide behind every corner this time of the year in hopes of making a family member or friend jump out of their shoes — those were the days. Sadly, I’ve seemed to lose my touch over the years.

    With a few key players watching from the sideline, a few more walking around with their helmets off the entire game, and still more hobbling on and off the football field between plays, the Henry County Wildcats could not overcome Spencer County’s running attack Friday night as the Cats took their third district loss of the season and will now play on the road in the first round of the state playoffs Nov. 14.

    The Eminence Warriors are playing their best football of the season, head coach Steve Frommeyer said, and they proved it Friday night with another big win to improve to 7-1 on the season.

  • Soccer teams here to stay

    There were highs and lows. There were victories. Losses. Speed bumps. High-fiving moments. Injuries. Celebrations. Road blocks.

    But along the way, regardless of what the scoreboard said, these players continued to make history and continued to pave the way for future soccer teams at Henry County High School. And when it was all said and done last week, they were just happy that they got the chance to play.
