  • Lady Hawks fall to E’town

    LaRue County’s Lady Hawks had a rough first quarter Jan. 23 as they played the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Stadium.
    They gave up seven turnovers and misfired on their first 12 shots from the field.
    “That’s what they do on their home floor,” LaRue’s Coach Travis Wootton said. “I think it was nerves and figuring things out. They’re one of the best defensive teams in the state. You have to be aggressive against them and I thought they were more aggressive than us in the first quarter.”

  • Mat Hawks take disappointing second at State Duals

    What happened? This is the question being asked over and over again to the LaRue County High School Mat Hawks after their second place finish at State Duals competition on Saturday in Lexington.
    “We were overconfident and Union County came in hungry and motivated and wanted it more than us,” said head coach Gary Canter. “We wrestled flat. We didn’t’ look good all day long. When you add in the fact we had a wrestler or two sick and injured, we had several obstacles to overcome right at the start of the day.”

  • Mat Hawks second at State Duals

    The LaRue County Hawks’ quest for another State Duals wrestling championship started strong Saturday, but fizzled late.

    The final match began at 138 pounds and LaRue County led 23-15 after the heavyweights before getting blanked the rest of the final.

     AU Associates, the Lexington development company that transformed Buffalo Elementary School into Buffalo Apartments, has completed another project.

    The Lexington Herald-Leader reported Monday that the company has finished Parkside, a development in Gardenside built on a 6-acre site that was formerly the Cross Keys YWCA.
