The Lady Hawks’ dreams of an 18th District championship ended in defeat Tuesday at Greensburg.
The third-seeded LaRue team fell 59-53 to the second-seeded Hart County Lady Raiders in the opening round of play.
Hart County led briefly in the first half, 3-2, but LaRue took charge and quickly gained a 7-point lead. Hart rallied, tying the game at 24-all at halftime.
Freshman guard Alexis Brewer, still recovering from a broken nose suffered three weeks ago, led all scorers with 23 points and three rebounds.
