    Peyton’s first tournament in September saw her shoot 80, 85 and 82 in her three rounds for a total of 247. In her second tournament in October she shot a three-round total of 249. Her final fall tournament saw a bit of improvement when she totaled 236.

    The Henry County 4-H Sharpshooters have had a busy spring and have returned with many trophies for their efforts. Practices started early and the team has already traveled to several competitions, with great success.

  • Hard work pays off

    I have taken some mostly good natured ribbing from some Henry County sports fans for the amount of coverage I have given to a couple of local golfers over the past few years.

    MacKenzie Peyton and Alex Hadden are names that are familiar to the readers of these pages because of one reason – they succeed at a high level in their sport.

    Alex Hadden, a rising freshman at Henry County High School, has been busy working on his golf game since last fall.

    Hadden has played in ten events on the Golfweek Junior Tour since November and after placing fourth in the tour championship at the University Club of Kentucky on May 26, finished the season ranked second in his age division.

    The Golfweek Junior Tour includes players from Michigan, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.

    The Henry County Wildcats faced the Simon Kenton Pioneers in the semifinals of the Eighth Region tournament May 31 and lost 7-3.

    Simon Kenton defeated the Shelby County Rockets 5-1 in the first round while the Wildcats knocked off South Oldham, one of the regional favorites, 6-1.

    The Henry County Lady Cats fell to the North Oldham Lady Mustangs, 5-0, May 30 in the first round of the 8th Region tournament at Trimble County High School.

    Lady Mustangs’ pitcher Madisyn Eads confounded the Lady Cats’ hitters all day as she pitched a one-hitter. Eads stuck out nine batters and walked three.

    Haley Miles broke up Eads’ no-hit bid with a single to lead off the seventh inning.

  • The Greatest will be missed

    As a young boy I watched Muhammad Ali in amazement. Not just for his incredible boxing skills but also for his brash, hilarious speaking style. Ali could dazzle in the ring with his incredibly quick feet and hands. Outside the ring he was incredibly quick with his dazzling wit.

    He was a trash talker before it was cool. But it was more than the way he taunted opponents and reporters. He made up simple rhymes that said so much. In another life he could have written campaign ads and commercial jingles.

  • 2016 spring sports review
