Going to the state as regional runner up, the determined Henryetta team repeated their run-rule attack winning over Morrison 13-5 in four innings.
Losses to Atoka’s Elite and Stilwell Indians knocked them out of contention for the state title. Atoka would go on to take the state championship.

The next generation of HHS Knights honed their football techniques during the two-day camp held at Cameron stadium. Nearly 40 youngsters turned out for the camp with high school players putting them through various drills from tackling to blocking, catching and passing. Coach Lance Beck said the idea behind the camp is to instill the style of football the Knights will be playing when they reach the high school level. Following the last day of camp they all participated in a hamburger fry.

Weeks of hard work and dedication were celebrated Thursday by the youngsters who made up the annual summer tennis program. The children enjoyed a burger and hotdog cookout then cooled off with an inflatable water slide at the tennis courts. "We had a lot of young people who learned a lot during the sessions," said head coach Dustin Mosco. "I appreciate the parents who kept their children interested and everyone of our volunteers who spent time at the courts."

HHS Lady Knight golf team members Breea and Emily Stockholm rubbed shoulders with some of the top members of the LPGA at Rogers, Ark., recently. The two, along with Skylar Smallwood, were the standard bearers at the Northwest Arkansas Championship June 28-30. They spent a few minutes reliving that trip and talking about the golfers they met.
