  • 18th District Baseball: Hawks defeat Hart

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County coach Chris Price thought the Hawks looked way too timid Monday evening.

    In the first five minutes, they allowed the first two batters to reach base. They committed an error. And they looked nothing like the nine-time defending 18th District Baseball Tournament champions.

    Then came a 27-minute lightning delay, during which Price reminded the Hawks to become more assertive.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks fall to Green

    Brigitte Skaggs had the Green County Lady Dragons on the ropes.

    The LaRue County freshman pitcher had struck out nine batters through 6 1/3 innings, keeping the Lady Hawks in the game against the four-time defending 18th District Softball Tournament champions at Hart County High School on Tuesday.

    Then came the seventh inning.

    Second-seeded LaRue County committed two costly errors – including one that led to the game-winning run – as top-seeded Green County rallied for a 3-2 victory to win its fifth consecutive district title.
