Friday night, before the Lady Hawks’ home basketball game, the LaRue County girls’ basketball program will retire two former players’ numbers.

Jerseys 15 and 42 will be retired in honor of Verda Dunn-Hacker, Class of 1981, and Lisa Phillips, Class of 1990.

The jerseys will hang in the gym lobby along with the only other Lady Hawk jersey to be retired – Tammy Shelton, number 32, Class of 2005.

These are the only three girls who have scored more than 1,500 points in girls’ basketball history, which started in 1975. They both are in the top five of almost every statistical category.

The Lady Hawks’ varsity game against Elizabethtown begins at 7:30 p.m.
