  • Lady Hawks' Wootton steps down

    Lady Hawk Coach Travis Wootton resigned April 28 after guiding LaRue County to 158 wins and back-to-back appearances in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament championship game.

    His decision means he will have more time to spend with his sons, 10-year-old Tate and 6-year-old Cooper.

    “I just felt like I was ready to step off the gas a little bit,” said Wootton. “I’ve gone full-tilt for 10 years now. I felt like I was missing out on some things with my family, and there were some times I felt tired.”

    Over the last 18 years working with the LaRue County High School Athletic Department, I have had the privilege to witness outstanding play, and be associated with some tremendous student-athletes.

  • Lady Hawk Jill Hughes: It's all about the team

    Throughout sports history successful programs have adopted the TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) concept. For junior Lady Hawk Softball player Jill Hughes, it’s all about the team. 

    As a youngster Hughes was surrounded by baseball and softball as she would attend her dad’s (Eric Hughes, former head baseball coach at LaRue County High School) games, along with her older brother (Cole Hughes), as well as her own softball games. Through these experiences she quickly learned the team concept.
