  • Softball: Lady Hawks defeat E’town, struggle through remainder of week

    Brigitte Skaggs hit her spots Tuesday night at Elizabethtown. Courtney Johnson just hit the ball.
    Together, the LaRue County sophomores helped the surging Lady Hawks back to the .500 mark with a 5-2 win over the host Lady Panthers.
    LaRue County (5-5), which has won 4-of-5, matched its second-best start through 10 games in the last eight seasons. But that didn’t matter much last season as the Lady Hawks started off 3-7 before rallying to earn a berth in the 5th Region Tournament title game.

    Head Coach Chris Price said the Hawks had “worked hard on hitting – and it really showed.”
    “We hit well, bunted well, ran the bases well, and Wesley (Kessinger) threw much better,” Price said. “Our defense let down some but we have been trying to correct our hitting so we have neglected the defense some. We will correct it. It was a good win for us.”
