  • Cats Fall To Oldham

    The Henry County Lady Cats season came to an end Monday, as they fell to Oldham County 8-3 in the 8th Region Softball tournament.

    The Lady Cats put a scare into the Lady colonels before falling 8-3 in the first round of the tournament.

    Henry County started with a base runner when Aly Stanley reached on an error. Paige DeBurger laid down a sacrifice bunt to move her into scoring position. Krista DeBurger then hit a high line drive to deep centerfield where Oldham County centerfielder Cynthia Leaton made a running over-the-shoulder grab at the fence.

  • Lady Cats finish second in...

    The Henry County Lady Cats and the Gallatin County Lady Wildcats began their 31st district championship game on May 22, but Mother Nature would not cooperate.

    Lightening and rain suspended play after one inning with Gallatin County leading 2-0.

    Henry County went down in order on three ground balls to start the game and Gallatin scored in the bottom of the first.

    The Lady Cats avoided further damage when Madison Rabourn threw out a runner trying to score from first base on a double.

  • Lack of exercise takes its toll



    By this time last year I had gotten myself in to pretty decent shape for an old guy. I was running a couple of times a week and riding my bicycle about 45 miles a week. I was a couple of weeks away from my first duathlon.

    I figured that with my impending retirement from teaching, I would be able to maintain my exercise more regularly.
