  • Wildcats squeak by Holy Cross

    The Henry County Wildcat football team traveled to Louisville Friday night to take on the Holy Cross Cougars and came away with a hard-fought 15-13 win.

    The Wildcats racked up 289 yards of rushing offense but had only 15 points to show for it because of a rash of penalties that called several long runs back. Mason Fish had 238 of those rushing yards.

    After a scoreless first quarter in which the Cats moved the ball well but failed to get into the end zone, the Cougars scored first with their defense.

  • Cats net 1st win

    The Henry County boys’ soccer team got its first district win in school history when they hosted the Gallatin County Wildcats on Sept. 9.

  • Lady Cats beat "Cats, Panthers

    “It’s one of the best games we’ve had,” coach Brandi Stivers said. “We had good communication and teamwork. We had to work through the physicality of their team.”

  • Wildcat golfers fall to Trimble, Gallatin

    The Cats had improved over the first weeks of the season, going from shooting in the 190s to shooting in the low 180s, but the trend ended against the Raiders on Sept. 10.

    “It was a little setback today,” coach Steve Galyon said. “Team scores have been coming down every time so you expect it to happen when young players are learning.

    Alex Hadden led the Cats with a 42, while Dillon Allen had his best round of the year with a 44. Isaac Klempner shot 52 and Jakob Beckley rounded out the scoring with a 53.
