  • BASEBALL: Hawks looking for consistency behind the plate

    Hawks head baseball coach Eric Allen is counting on shoring up team defense and more consistency at the plate to point his LaRue County High School squad in the winning direction.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to Green

    What LaRue County coach Eric Allen saw from the Hawks in the seventh inning is what he wants to see the entire game.
