  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Hawks progress in District play

     Ben Schell has been coaching volleyball long enough to witness some strange occurrences, but nothing like this.

  • PHOTO: Spirit Stick

     LaRue County High School seniors swarmed the field when they learned they won the annual football homecoming spirit stick Oct. 4.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks fall to Panthers

     The LaRue County High School Hawks lost their eighth straight game Oct. 19. 

  • SOCCER: Hawks fall in opening round of District Tourney

     The Hawks Soccer Team lost their opening round in the 18th District Tournament Oct. 15 to Taylor County.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks fall to Panthers

    The LaRue County High School Hawks lost their eighth straight Oct. 19 to host Elizabethtown at Doug Smith Memorial Stadium.

    It was a pivotal Class 3-A, District 3 clash for both teams. Elizabethtown (6-2, 1-1) won to keep alive its bid of hosting a playoff game, while the loss guaranteed the Hawks (0-8, 0-2) the fourth seed in the playoffs and a first-round game at District 4 top seed Wayne County.

    The win was the Panthers’ first against the Hawks since 2008.

  • Lady Hawks 2-1 in Henderson tournament

    The Lady Hawks defeated the visiting John Hardin Lady Bulldogs Oct. 8, 25-21, 25-23, 25-17.

    LaRue County fought off rallies from John Hardin in the first and second sets and then cruised to a win in the third set.

    The Lady Hawks start four seniors and have 13 wins in their last 14 matches, so it’s usually pretty easy for them to identify their mistakes.

  • Special teams plays costly against Henry

    The LaRue County Hawks won the statistics battle Friday night, but they still lost the scoreboard war against Henry County.

  • Hawks fall to Bardstown

    On Monday the LaRue County Hawks traveled to Bardstown. Bardstown sought revenge for an 8-0 defeat on Hawks Senior night last year.

    The game was what the Hawks expected—physical but fair, total commitment from both teams desperate to show they wanted to win—with Bardstown striking first blood. The Hawks leveled the score shortly before half time with a goal from Senior Curtis Milby.

    Half time came and for the first time this season, the coaching staff had nothing to do as the Hawks were playing an almost perfect team game.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks face Henry County without Neal

    Another week, another key player gone for the winless LaRue County Hawks.

    This time it’s senior end/linebacker Michael Neal, who suffered a leg injury Tuesday in an auto accident. Neal was one of the few Hawks to have started every game, carrying the ball 26 times for 64 yards and a touchdown, leading the team in receptions (four) and receiving yards (115), recovering a fumble and leading the team in total tackles (27) and solo stops (20).

  • Lady Hawks enjoy recordbreaking season

    The Lady Hawks Soccer team has had a season that is unmatched in the history of LaRue County High School.

    Already boasting 12-recorded wins, with eight single games won in a row, they have topped the previous records for consecutive wins and total wins in LCHS soccer history.

    Having an outstanding season well under way, the Lady Hawks seniors said they “couldn’t ask for more.”

    Captain Courtney Johnson, who plays defense, said this season has been a testament to how hard all of the girls have worked as a team.
