    The Henry County Wildcats took to the diamond April 2 for their second game of a five-game road trip to Florida and came away with a 6-3 victory over the McLean County Cougars.

    The Wildcats fell behind early but a big third inning and two runs produced with “small ball” in the sixth made all the difference.

    McLean scored a single run in the second inning after pitcher Zack Woods hit the leadoff batter. The base runner took second on a wild pitch.

    Thomas Nelson got off to a good start when they scored two runs with one out in the top of the first inning. The leadoff batter reached on a walk then the second batter was hit by a pitch before a fly ball got caught in the strong winds and sailed deep into center field to score both runners.

    The Henry County Lady Cats got a district win over Gallatin County in their delayed season opener March 26.

    The Lady Cats’ original opener ended after just a couple of innings on March 19 against East Jessamine because of rain. In that game the Lady Cats were down 3-0 when the umpires called the game off.

    This time around the Lady Cats got off to a better start and broke the game open early with nine runs in the bottom of the second inning.

    The Henry County High School track team finally got their season underway at the rainy, cool North Oldham Invitational Thursday night. The Track Cats have had two previous meets cancelled due to weather.

    Noah Combs had the best showing for the boys’ team in the discus throw with a toss of 80 feet, three inches, which was good for fourth place. Ryan Phillips also scored in the discus with a throw of 73 feet, three inches for seventh place.

    Henry County High School senior Mario Gamboa wrapped up his career as a high school football player in November when the Wildcats lost a heartbreaker to Floyd Central in the Class 3A playoffs, but he may continue his athletic career in college like many of his teammates. 

    Gamboa, however, is not pursuing a college football career. The 6’3”, 250-pound former offensive lineman has a good shot at being on the nationally renowned University of Louisville cheerleading squad next year.

    The Henry County Wildcats hosted the Eminence Warriors in the season opener for both teams March 19. The temperature was 60 degrees when the first batter stepped to the plate with a light rain falling. That stood in stark contrast to the rest of the week as a snowstorm and cold temperatures wiped out the week’s scheduled games. 

    Zack Woods started on the mound for the Wildcats and set the Warriors down in order in the top of first inning.
