  • Ivy Brown named Player of the Year

     Travis Wootton said there’s no way to measure just how much senior wing Ivy Brown has meant to the LaRue County Lady Hawks this season.

    The Miss Basketball candidate averages a team-best 22.2 points and 12.1 rebounds per game, helping LaRue County to a 19-6 record entering tonight’s game at Campbellsville.

    The 5th Region girls’ coaches recognized how much of an impact Brown has had as she was named the region Player of the Year on the All 5th Region Team.

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Hawks pound Assumption

    After sleepwalking in a loss to Green County, the 16th-ranked LaRue County Lady Hawks are wide awake now.

    Senior wing Ivy Brown and the Lady Hawks extended their win streak to four since that last-minute setback to the Lady Dragons, rolling to a 66-20 win Saturday night against the Louisville Assumption Rockets in the nightcap of the five-game Duke’s Valentine Shootout at John Hardin.

    All four of LaRue County’s victories since the loss to Green County have come by at least nine points and three have been by 22 points or more.

  • BASKETBALL: Hawks fall to Taylor

     The LaRue County Hawks expended so much energy trying to get back in the game against the visiting Taylor County Cardinals on Friday night that when the Hawks finally got close, they had nothing left.

    LaRue County cut a 24-point deficit to five late in the third quarter but ran out of gas against one of the 5th Region’s elite teams.

    Taylor County went on a 17-2 run in a 5-minute stretch late in the third quarter and early in the fourth quarter to run away from the Hawks for a 71-52 victory.

  • BASKETBALL: Win for Samantha

     The LaRue County Lady Hawks’ 1-2-2 half-court trap is designed to get opponents out of their rhythm on offense and create some easy scoring chances for the Lady Hawks.

    Against 5th Region rival Taylor County on Friday night, it was mission accomplished on both accounts.

    With 6-foot-1 senior forward Ivy Brown on top, the Lady Hawks flustered the Lady Cardinals into 18 turnovers and 32 percent shooting from the field on their way to a 69-37 victory in Hodgenville.
