  • Ladycats run out of steam...

    With six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter last Monday night, the Henry County Ladycats cut their deficit to just three points against the defending 31st District basketball champions Carroll County. Playing on the comforts of their home court, the Ladycats were right where they wanted to be.

    But the 39-36 score was as close as the Cats would get as Carroll's suffocating defense held Henry in check for the rest of the game and its offense used a 13-0 run to pull away to a convincing 52-36 win.

  • Every golfer's dream

    Marty Kaelin of Louisville hit a lifetime shot last Tuesday afternoon at the Henry County Country Club when he aced the No. 2, par-3 hole for his first ever hole-in-one.

    It was the shot of his career for the 81-year-old Kaelin, who plays three days per week at the HCCC, and one he's been waiting a long time for.

    "After 51 years of playing, it was definitely a surprise," Kaelin said an hour after landing the perfect shot.

  • Lady Warriors falter in fourth...

    The Eminence Lady Warriors were on the verge of earning their first win of the season, but instead took a 43-25 loss at Silver Grove Saturday afternoon.

    Eminence was behind by just one point, 25-24, heading into the final quarter. After that, the Lady Warriors scored just one point and Silver Grove went on a 18-1 run during the final period for the 18-point win.

  • Swim Cats hope to make a splash

    The Henry County Swim Cats started their program three years ago when Kaitlin and Kara Blair were eighth graders. Now, with dozens of races behind them and attainable goals ahead, the twins hope to make a splash as juniors.

  • Blackburn frustrated with...

    The Eminence Warriors won their first game of the season last Wednesday night against Kentucky School for the Deaf, but dropped three more games to start their 2007-08 basketball campaign with a 1-4 record.

    The struggling Warriors lost to Evangel Christian last Tuesday (77-57), Model on Friday (59-40) and Portland Christian on Saturday (66-44). Sandwiched between the three losses was the KSD win (55-49).

  • Henry too emotional at Gallatin...

    In a rematch of last year's 31st District Tournament finals, the visiting Henry County Wildcats came out a little too emotional against Gallatin County Friday night, resulting in an early deficit for Henry and a 69-58 loss.

    The district matchup saw Gallatin jump out to a 15-2 advantage midway through the opening quarter, which left Henry chasing last year's district champs for the rest of the game. The Wildcats eventually cut the margin to just four points, but ended the game behind by 11 to leave them at 2-2 overall and 0-1 in district play.

  • Gallatin falls victim to Ladycats

    After the Henry County Ladycats got up by 20 points and watched Gallatin County storm back to take the lead late in the fourth quarter, Henry's Kelsey Mings scored the game-deciding basket in the closing seconds to lift the Ladycats over Gallatin, 55-53, Friday night.

    But it was a shot Henry never should have needed.

  • It's finally official, and...

    After working at the Local for three and a half years, I've finally made the plunge into becoming a member of Henry County. It's official - I now reside in Pleasureville - and it's long overdue.

    First off, let me take you back to my college days to let you know how much I wanted to live in Pleasureville - even before I was filling these pages with stories and pictures weekly.

  • Ladycats already show progress

    The Henry County Ladycats jump started their 2007-08 season at the Lady Spartan Invitational last week. And although it took a while to get the entire engine firing, by the end of the three-game, round-robin style tournament, the Cats were already showing progress from just three days earlier.

    Now, coach Todd Gilley said, the young squad has to continue to get better.

    Henry opened its season with a loss to Garrard County (64-40) on Wednesday, before losing to Sayre (37-26) on Thursday and defeating Model (48-38) on Saturday to start the season at 1-2.

  • Wildcats split opening-week...

    Sports editor

    The Henry County boys’ basketball team opened last season with a 1-1 record, then went on to celebrate one of its best campaigns in school history with a 19-11 mark and 8th Region Tournament appearance.

    Last week, with new faces and minus six seniors from last year’s squad, the Wildcats repeated with a 1-1 opening-week mark. Now, they hope to survive the early-season road games ahead and repeat last year’s success.
