    The Henry County Wildcats cross country team traveled to the Kentucky Horse Park Saturday to take part in the state high school cross country meet

    Despite blue skies on race day, the course had to be altered by meet officials because rains flooded the usual start line area earlier in the week. The start and finish lines were moved about 50 yards in order to make for a safe start to the races.

    HCHS senior golfer Maddie Hensley participated in the J.B. Holmes Cup Oct. 20-21 at Danville’s Old Bridge Golf Course.

    Holmes, a PGA tour professional from Campbellsville, created the tournament to help promote youth golf in Kentucky.

    Holmes selects golfers from the Campbellsville area as well as golfers who win selected tournaments during the summer to be on his team. The opponents for his team are an all-star team of high school golfers from the rest of the state.

  • Big Blue still has a lot to play for

     There is no denying that the University of Kentucky Wildcats football team has given its supporters some great moments this year and some of the most optimistic fans even began to dream of a trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship game.

    With the best scoring defense in the country going into last Saturday’s game with Georgia, the Wildcats appeared to have a chance. 

    But when all was said and done, the Wildcats came up short in an important department. I’ll call it the “little things” department.

  • Abney named to All-State team

     Henry County High School soccer player Megan Abney, a senior, was named to the 2018 Kentucky High School Soccer Coaches Association All-State honorable mention team.

    Playing as a midfielder, Abney scored 19 goals and dished out nine assists in 19 games for the Lady Cats this season.

    Abney will also play in the East-West All-Star game Saturday at 1 p.m. at Elizabethtown High School.

  • Sports Brief

     HCMS football players sign letters of intent

    The Henry County High School football team held a unique ceremony at their football banquet Sunday when they asked eighth-grade football players interested in playing high school football next year to sign “letters of intent.”

    The signing was intended to mimic a college signing and to strengthen the bond between the incoming players and returning players.

  • Teaching the importance of compassion

    The holiday season is a time for giving thanks and giving back. Now is the perfect time of year to teach children the importance of community service and to nurture the spirit of giving.

    Start by choosing a charity in your own community; talk to youth about the kinds of charities they would like to support.

  • Unique gifts without the hassle; deer hunters stop by for lunch, shopping

     

    Even though we don’t have a shopping mall in Henry County, you have the opportunity to purchase those unique gifts just around the corner by attending the Holiday Bazaar from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Henry County 4-H/Fairgrounds Building.

    Shopping locally also helps to keep those dollars circulating in our own local economy, plus it will save on your gas bill and lower the stress of driving in all that Louisville traffic.
