  • Coach Howell accepts new role with Hardin school

    For the last 34 years, Aaron Howell has associated himself with the color blue. Growing up he found himself, like many people in Kentucky, a big University of Kentucky Wildcat fan. In high school he sported the E’town blue, and then UK blue as a college graduate. His first job as an assistant coach was at North Hardin with school colors of blue and black.

  • LCHS Students benefit from after school activities

    When I was growing up, my mom and dad always told my brother, sister and myself to “go find something to do outside.” Anyone reading this article probably has been told the same as a youngster. We typically did so by shooting basketball, throwing baseball and football, and running up and down the street. This led to a genuine interest for me to be involved in extracurricular activities during my 12 years in school, and on the collegiate level.

  • LaRue athletes continue to hone their skills

    Each year various LaRue County High School teams and athletes stay busy honing their skills by participating in camps and travel teams.

  • State Champs' coach will cheer from the sidelines

    After 10 years as head coach during which she led her LaRue County High School cheerleaders to a state title and two national final appearances, Tara Wooden is stepping down.

    “I am just ready to spend more time at home with my husband,” she said. “It’s a really long season, June through March, and while I loved every minute of coaching, it’s time to take a step back and focus on other priorities.”

  • Skaggs, Gardner named to All-Region Team

    Two Lady Hawks – senior pitcher/first baseman Brigitte Skaggs and senior center fielder Peyton Gardner – were named to the 5th Region Fastpitch Coaches Association’s All-Region Team.

  • SOFTBALL: Gardner, Skaggs to play on All-Region Team

    Two Lady Hawks – senior pitcher/first baseman Brigitte Skaggs and senior center fielder Peyton Gardner – were named to the 5th Region Fastpitch Coaches Association’s All-Region Team.

    Each of the 18 schools in the region could nominate four players for the team, but coaches couldn’t vote for their own players. No player was unanimous and it took nine votes for a player to make the 16-player squad. Coaches could vote for 15 opposing players.

    Skaggs was a preseason All-Region pick.

  • REGION SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks take on Central Hardin

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ goal this season wasn’t just to get to the 5th Region Softball Tournament in Munfordville, but the state tournament in Owensboro.

    Before earning a spot at State though, the Lady Hawks knew the fourth-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins would be in their way.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks are district runners-up

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ backs were against the wall.

    Top-seeded Green County pushed across two runs and had loaded the bases against junior starting pitcher Emillee Cundiff, slicing LaRue County’s four-run lead to two in the bottom of the seventh inning, so Lady Hawks coach Aaron Howell called on senior Brigitte Skaggs to close it out.
