    “It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get back up.”

    “It’s not how you start a race; it’s how you finish.”

    The LaRue County Hawks varsity baseball team went 2-2 last week after playing in the Panama City Beach Bash at Panama City Beach, Florida.

    The Hawks started the tournament against Wayne County Cardinals last Monday. The Cardinals beat the Hawks 10-0 as the Hawks couldn’t get anything going offensively.
