    HORSE CAVE With a matchup looming against the pitcher who struck them out 18 times earlier this season, the LaRue County Hawks were primed for another chance.

    The 18th District baseball and softball tournament championship games between LaRue County and Green County were rained out Tuesday and rescheduled for 6 tonight at Caverna – that is, if Mother Nature allows it.

    More rain and thunderstorms are in the forecast for today, meaning both games could get pushed back to Thursday. Because LaRue County and Green County have graduation Friday night, Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell hopes Plan ‘A’ works out.

    “This year’s senior class has been an advocate all year long for this move,” said LCHS Principal Paul Mullins. “The last couple of years we have experienced extreme heat in the gym. In fact, last year it was so hot the walls and even the floor on the stage were sweating.”
