    The Henry County Lady Cats moved to 3-1 in district play with victories over Carroll County and Gallatin County last week.

    The Lady Cats traveled to Carroll County Sept. 5 and swept the Lady Panthers in three sets, 25-14, 25-17 and 25-18.

    HCHS Coach Kara Capps thought her team had to overcome some early hitting problems to get the win.

  • Lady Cats draw with Walton, 2-2


    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted the Walton-Verona Lady Bearcats Sept. 6 and came from two goals down to prevent what looked like a certain defeat.

    The Lady Cats had most of the possession early in the game as Walton defended well and looked to counter-attack.

    Neither team could break through for the first goal until Walton got a lucky break with eight minutes remaining in the half.

  • Rebels beat Atherton, 27-18


    The Eminence Warriors traveled to Louisville Friday night to take on the Class 5A Atherton Rebels and came out on the short end of a 27-18 score line.

    Atherton scored on their first possession when a screen pass turned into a 49-yard touchdown. The extra point kick made it 7-0.

  • HCHS downs Walton


    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted Walton-Verona in a match that was unusual in a couple of ways Sept. 6.

    Both teams had a player missing for the match due to illness so the coaches decided to score as a three-person match rather than the usual four-person match. It was also very cool and windy for an early-September day with temperatures in the lower 60s and the wind blowing hard from the northwest.

    The Lady Cats powered through the tough conditions to beat the Lady Bearcats 147 to 163.

    The girls had four runners in their race and eighth-grader Kayla Harger led the way with a time of 21:35 that was good enough for a 30th place finish in a very strong field of 148 runners.

  • Wildcats tie Bullitt Central, 1-1

    But Henry County came out ready to play in the mud and took it to the Braves from their first possession.
