  • Despite injuries, Rahm is...

    Zach Rahm a former linebacker and running back for the Henry County Wildcats just wrapped up his junior year playing for the Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers in Owensboro.

    Rahm started at outside linebacker for the Panthers this year.

    Though his season was cut short by a concussion, through eight games he had 16.5 tackles, one interception, 1.5 tackles for loss and one pass breakup.

  • Panthers dominte Cats

    When the Henry County Wildcats and Carroll County Panthers met last week, it appeared that another barnburner between the district rivals was underway.

    But a 6-1 Panthers’ run in the 1st quarter dashed that hope; the Panthers never

    looked back in a 29-point victory that hurt the Wildcats’ chances of a high seed in the district tournament.

  • Mitchell's Grand

    It happened quietly over the holiday break. Eminence Senior Brandon Mitchell surpassed the 1,000-career points mark in Metcalfe County.

    Acknowledgement of the accomplishment was planned for Friday night’s game against Evangel Christian once Mitchell got his first basket of the game; though it took a little time to get there — Mitchell had a tough offensive night.

    The crowd and Mitchell had to wait until late in the third quarter before he finally scored.

  • 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.

  • Lady Cats win round 2 v. Carroll


    In mid-December, the Henry County Lady Cats and Carroll County Lady Panthers squared off in a game that coaches and players felt the Lady Cats should have won.

    Freshman Cheyenne Clark had a breakout performance with 27 points to lead the Cats.
