  • Boys' golfers top fall...


    The fall sports season is behind us and it’s time to look back at how the season went for local teams.

    Hadden and Klempner make state tournament

    Alex Hadden and Isaac Klempner finished second and fourth, respectively, in the regional golf tournament to both qualify for the state tournament. The two juniors had both made state previously but this was the first time they had gone together.

  • Editor's picks: Fall's...

    I’ve watched scores of high school athletic contests over the past three months and seen every high school athlete in Henry County compete, not just this year, but over several years. With that being said, I would like to indulge in talking about my favorite performers during the 2018 fall sports season.

    This is not an objective list. There is no way to do that. This is a list that is based on what I like to see when I go to high school athletic competitions. Some of those traits include athleticism, effort and sacrificing for the team.

  • Warrior Madness gets hoops...

    The Eminence Warriors basketball season got underway with Warrior Madness Friday night. Players and cheerleaders were introduced amid a light show and dry ice before the boys and girls teams participated in intrasquad scrimmages.

  • Cross Country Cats run at state...


    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.

  • Hensley competes in J.B. Holmes...


    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...

     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.

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