  • BASEBALL: Hawks keep winning

    MUNFORDVILLE — Nothing is better for a team than controlling its own destiny and the LaRue County Hawks are in that position.
    LaRue County freshman Jaxon Boley shut the Hart County Raiders down and the Hawks scored five runs in the final four innings to pull away for a 6-0 victory in an 18th District game May 5 at Raider Field.
    The Hawks gave Coach Eric Allen a good birthday present, the program’s first 20-win season in his three-year tenure. It’s a big stepping stone for a young team coming off a 10-23 season.

    Sophomore Kourtnee Davenport went 3-for-4 with two RBIs, while sophomore Chasity Bryant added two singles and a run.

  • COLUMN: No sport like wrestling

    My mother has been nagging me to write something.

    But that’s not why I decided to do it.

    I’ve been inspired by a book by Nolan Zavoral entitled “A Season On The Mat.” The book takes you into the 1996-97 season of Dan Gable and his Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling team.

    I just finished my first year of coaching middle school wrestling with Cody Gibbons.

  • Saul Marin finds his niche in track

    For many of us, finding our niche in a particular task takes a long time. Some of us find it early in life, while others find it later. I am always seeking out students who are not involved in activities to consider giving a sport a try in hopes they will find their niche. 

    Most of the time I point them in the direction of track, simply because there are 14 events in which kids have an opportunity to excel. For Saul Marin, a freshman at LaRue County High School, it appears he has found his niche in track.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks defeat Green County

    The LaRue County Hawks took two years of frustration out on the Green County Dragons.

    The Hawks claimed the top spot for the 18th District Tournament for the first time since 2012 with a 14-1 pounding of rival Green County on Saturday afternoon. It was LaRue County’s first sweep of the Dragons since 2012 when it last won the district title.
