ALIVE at 25

Sign up for ALIVE at 25 a FREE and accredited teen driving program that meets the state Graduated License Program (GLP) four-hour requirements. Taught by Sgt. Jonathon Whittaker with the Kentucky State Police will be held at HCHS on Thursday March 30, 2017 at 3:30 pm. Tragically, the number one killer of teens is motor vehicle crashes. That is why the Kentucky State Police (KSP), Toyota and the National Safety Council (KSC) are joining forces with the high schools and local businesses across Kentucky to ensure that novice drivers survive their most dangerous driving years. Sign up in the Youth Services Center by March 28, 2017.

Henderson County Archery Team competed in the KHSAA Region 1 Tournament in Madisonville. They came in FIRST PLACE with a team score of 3424. There were 10 teams who competed in this tournament for Region 1. The runner-up was TRIGG COUNTY with a team score of 3418. These two teams will now advance to the KHSAA State Tournament to be held in Lexington in mid-April (exact date not known at this time).

Two of our archers also received individual awards for their top scores: Matthew Market and Jared Odom both shot a 290 at today's tournament.

Only the top two teams qualify to advance to the State tournament. The final team scores were as follows:

HCHS - 3424
Trigg - 3418

Henderson County has not advanced to the KHSAA State Tournament since 2014. In 2015 and 2016 the team came in 3rd place and just missed their chance to advance to State. Needless to say today's CHAMPIONSHIP WIN is a HUGE accomplishment for these archers who have worked very hard this year to achieve today's win. The team's coaches (Dan Melton, Jimmy Payne, Carl Frederick and Jeff Hinkle) along with the entire Henderson County Archery Club are very proud of these archers!

KHSAA State Tournament - It will be Thursday April 20, 2017 at the Kentucky Basketball Academy complex in Lexington. First flight at 9:30 am (EST) and the last flight at 2:30. Awards will be at 3:30 p.m. (EST)
