  • 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.

  • Girls' Sweet Sixteen moving

    The tourism community remains optimistic despite news that the KHSAA Girls’ Sweet Sixteen basketball tournament won’t be coming to Bowling Green in 2016-17.

    Vicki Fitch, executive director of the Bowling Green Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, said there will be other opportunities for Bowling Green to bring in large crowds.

    “Of course we’re disappointed ... but we have other KHSAA events we’re securing,” Fitch said.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks beat North

    For such a young team, losing a plethora of close games has been somewhat demoralizing for the LaRue County Hawks.

    Thanks to senior Kody Key-Close, the host Hawks finally got one to go their way Monday.

    Facing a five-man infield, Key-Close’s line drive to center field was just over the outstretched glove of North Hardin sophomore A.J. Morales to score freshman Cameron Dawson and give LaRue County a 3-2 walkoff win in nine innings.
