    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 Henry County Wildcats football team traveled to Louisville Friday night to take on Class 4A Moore High School and fell 28-14.

    The Mustangs jumped on top in the first period with touchdown runs of 32, 24 and 60 yards to lead 22-0.

    The Wildcats’ defense improved after that and held Moore scoreless in the second period. But the Wildcats could not find the end zone either and went into the locker room trailing by three touchdowns.

  • Meet Mr. Wildcat: HCHS teacher...

    If you have been to a Henry County High School athletic event over the last three years, you may have noticed him on the sideline with his loud, booming voice and his Henry County Wildcat scarf held high above his head. He is the man who leads the C-A-T-S cheers and generally gets the crowd fired up at HCHS sporting events.

    He is also the man who goes to events that are not usually on people’s radar such as cross country races, golf matches and marching band competitions.

  • Lady Cats seniors winningest in...

    The senior soccer players on the Henry County Lady Cats team will go down as a record setting group this season.

    Megan Abney, Erica Bratcher, Allison Johnson, Janey Thompson and Emily Wilson have played in more winning games for the Lady Cats than any group to put on cleats for HCHS.

    The Henry County Lady Cats saw their most successful season ever end Oct. 15 at South Oldham High School after a spirited first half defense was finally broken down.

    South Oldham started out with plenty of possession and attacks but the Lady Cats’ defense and goalkeeper Allison Johnson held firm until 3:05 left in the first half.

    Johnson had six saves before the goal and South Oldham took 11 shots in total when they finally beat the Lady Cats.
