  • Bat Cats' rally falls short

    The Henry County Wildcats’ baseball team opened their season with two games on the road in Frankfort this weekend.

    On Friday night the Wildcats played the Frankfort Panthers and lost when the Panthers pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh.

    After the teams battled back and forth through the first two innings, Frankfort threatened to break the game open with a big third inning in which they scored three runs to take a 7-4 lead.

    The Wildcats came back in the sixth inning to get three runs to tie it going into the final inning.

  • Wildcats lead hoops highlights

    The 2013-14 high school basketball season is over for our local teams and it’s time to look back at the highlights of the season.

    The top highlight had to be the Henry County Wildcats’ run to the regional tournament that included a three-point win over Gallatin County and a heartbreaking last second loss to Owen County in the championship game.

    I think the loss to Owen says more about the Cats than their win against Gallatin.

  • School spirit is alive and well...

     

    We older folks like to talk about the good old days when things were better. For instance, we like to talk about how the crowds were better for sporting events and school spirit was better. We like to talk about how kids these days have too many distractions that keep them from being invested in their school. We like to talk about the lack of pride that kids have in their schools and their sports teams.

  • Colonels end Cats' season

     

    The Henry County Wildcats’ dream game turned into a nightmare because of an 11-0 run by the Oldham County Colonels that spanned the end of the third quarter and the first 49 seconds of the fourth quarter in the opening round of the 8th Region basketball tournament on Friday night.
