  • Lady Hawks knocked out of 18th District Tournament

    For the first time since 1997, the 5th Region Tournament was played without the LaRue County Lady Hawks in its field.

    A very determined Lady Raider team from Hart County stood in the Lady Hawks’ way of making the tournament for the 13th straight year, as the Lady Hawks fell 9-4 in the first round of the 18th District Tournament in Greensburg May 24.

    Errors early and often seemed to be the story for the Lady Hawks. To add to the defensive problems, the offensive power left the bats as well, as the Lady Hawks could not get the timely hits they needed.
