  • Lady Cats hold their ground

    Illness decimated the Henry County Lady Cats last week.

    Henry played its third game against Carroll County down three starters — Colleen Coomes, Cheyenne Clark and Haley Bramblett. Kim Barmore played despite being sick herself.

    Despite being down three players, the Lady Cats came into this game hoping to get another victory — they’d beaten Carroll in the North American Steel tournament six days prior — against their rivals in a district seeding game.
