  • Moments to Remember

    I tend to focus more on the teams I cover than the individuals who play on the teams. It’s just the way I’m wired I guess. As a former coach, I realize the pitfalls that can occur when young people are repeatedly told how wonderful they are.

    There is teammate jealousy to worry about. There is the distraction of thinking that colleges just may be watching. And then there is that terrible disease known as “big head syndrome” to worry about.

    The Henry County Lady Cats used a 14-0 run in the second period to take control of their game with the visiting Carroll Lady Panthers and rolled to a double-digit victory Dec. 15.

    The Lady Cats got off to a rough start offensively as they fell behind 12-4 with 3:01 to play in the opening period. The Lady Cats missed several layups and open jumps shots during those first five minutes, which kept them from getting into their full court press.

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Carroll County Panthers Dec. 15 in their third district seeding game of the year. The Wildcats stood at 2-0 in district games after defeating Eminence and Gallatin County the previous week. With a win over Carroll County, they could have been in a good position for a high seed for the tournament.

    But the Panthers put on an excellent shooting display and led almost from start to finish in a convincing 13-point win.

    The Warriors were never seriously threatened as they made 27 steals despite calling off the press midway through the opening period.

    Thursday night the Warriors played Beth Haven and turned a close game into a rout with good defense.

    The Warriors opened up a 5-0 lead in the first period only to see Beth Haven outscore them 9-4 the rest of the period to make it 9-9 going into the second period.

    But the Warriors held the Lady Bearcats to just nine points the rest of the game and cruised to a 41-18 win.

  • Wildcats down Warriors, 78-63

    sports@hclocal.com
    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Eminence Warriors on Dec. 8 and nearly led from wire to wire.
    EHS’ Cameron Jones gave the Warriors a 2-0 lead on a shot in the lane 28 seconds into the contest and it would be the only lead Eminence enjoyed all night as Henry County handled the smaller, quicker team’s press and dominated inside to win comfortably.
