    MacKenzie Peyton committed to play golf for the South Alabama Jaguars several weeks ago but she made it official Nov. 12 when she signed a letter of intent.

    The signing ceremony was held in front of a large crowd of friends and family at the Henry County Country Club where Peyton has spent countless hours honing her skills.

    Before the signing her high school coach and grandfather William Peyton talked about Peyton’s many accomplishments throughout her high school career.

  • Individuals leave lasting...

    While the local teams provided many highlights this season, there were some individuals that provided moments that I will not forget. These are not necessarily the best individual athletes or any sort of ranking, just some moments in the season that stick in my mind.

    Gavin Jameson’s bicycle kick goal against Owen County has to be the individual play of the season for me.

    The Henry County Wildcats traveled to Bell County for the first round of the playoffs and fell victim to turnovers and injuries as the Bell County Bobcats pulled away to a 35-6 win.

    After a scoreless first period in which the defenses dominated and the offenses struggled, Bell County got on the board first with a one-yard touchdown run. A bad snap foiled the conversion attempt and Bell County led 6-0 with 9:35 left in the second period.

    Janey Thompson finished her first year as a cross country runner on a high note as she set a personal record at the Class AA state championships at the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday. Thompson finished 68th in a field of 202 runners in a time of 22:12, which was 18 seconds faster than her previous best time at the regional meet last week.

    The day turned out to be perfect for the runners with temperature in the mid-50s and sunshine peeking through the clouds.

  • Bellevue bombards Warriors

    sports@hclocal.com

    The host Bellevue Tigers used their potent aerial attack to dominate the first half en route to a 61-12 win over the Eminence Warriors Friday night in the first round of the Class A football playoffs.

    Bellevue got the offensive show going with a 32-yard pass for a touchdown on their second play from scrimmage. After the Warriors took over on their own three-yard line to start their first series, the Tigers stripped the ball and scored on the fumble recovery to make it 14-0 just 34 seconds into the game.

  • Cats, Cards stacked for another...

    As the college basketball season gets underway this weekend – that’s right this weekend – Kentucky and Louisville fans have a lot to be excited about.

    The University of Kentucky has never had a stronger returning group under John Calipari. Despite the hyperbole that surrounds every new season with the lineup of young talented players, many UK teams are overrated to begin each season. But this year I don’t think you can be hyperbolic enough in describing the talent and depth that the Cats have on display.

  • Wildcats stymie Spencer in the...

    sports@hclocal.com

    Stifling defense and two second quarter touchdowns were all the Henry County Wildcats needed Friday night against the Spencer County Bears. The Wildcats won 14-6 and became only the tenth Henry County team in school history to reach the seven-win mark.

    After Bo Wagner took the opening kickoff to the Spencer County 42-yard line to start the game, Henry County could not generate any offense and gave the ball up on downs.

    It would be that kind of quarter for both teams as defense dominated in the cold, wet and windy conditions.
