  • Peyton shoots 34 on Senior Night


    The Henry County Lady Cats held senior night for MacKenzie Peyton in a match with Shelby County on Sept. 10 and Peyton celebrated in style by shooting a two-under 34 on her home course.

    Peyton got off to a rocky start with a bogey on the first hole and then birdied three of the final eight holes in very windy conditions.

    Shelby County won the team competition with a score of 170 to Henry County’s 192. Madison Thomas was low scorer for the Lady Rockets with a 41.

  • Wildcats host tournament


    The Henry County Wildcat golf team hosted Trimble County on Sept. 9 and defeated the Raiders 190-217.

    Alex Hadden led the way with a 40 while Isaac Klempner was second with a 43. Jakob Beckley had a 53 and Dustin Love rounded out the team scoring with a 54.

    “Alex and Isaac continue to play well,” Coach Steve Galyon said. “I’m sure Alex wants to shoot under par and he certainly has that capability. Isaac is bringing his average down and that’s good.”

    The Henry County cross country team traveled to Goshen on Saturday to compete in North Oldham High School’s Rumble through the Jungle Invitational meet.

  • The long way can be the most rewarding

     Two summers ago my family and I turned my dad’s business trip from Michigan to Las Vegas into a ten-day vacation. My brother had to stay behind for work, so my parents and sister and I made the sixty-hour drive. Thirty hours one way is long enough to spend in the car with anyone, let alone your family, but we saved money by not flying, and rented a vehicle with decent gas mileage.
