    The second day of the Leachman Auto/KHSAA Boys’ State Championship didn’t go quite the way LaRue County junior Cameron Dawson  wanted Wednesday.

    But a rough day at the state tournament is better than the alternative.

    Dawson shot a higher round in the final day of the state tournament than the first, but he still managed to finish in the top 20.

    After shooting a 73 on the first day, Dawson fired a 2-over 74 to end up in a four-way tie for 19th.

  • Watson seeks district championship

    Over the last four years Senior Hawks Soccer player Chase Watson has had one goal in mind and that is to be the first to win a district championship for LCHS. Three months ago, Watson wasn’t sure if that goal would be possible with the departure of Coach Derek Bell.

    Enter Head Coach Dodd Caudill, and Watson now believes the Hawks are primed to win the first ever championship for the Hawks ten-year program.

    Watson, a two-year starter, believes they have the right formula to improve on the twelve wins from last year.

  • Hawks lose to Danville

    The LaRue County Hawks football team lost to the Danville Admirals last Friday night 41-14.

    The amount of yards on offense and the inability to get the ball into the end zone would prove to be the deciding factor in the Hawks’ loss as they were shut out by the Admirals defense in the first half with a score of 41-0 at halftime. The Hawks also weren’t able to stop the bleeding on defense in the first half and the Hawks special teams also gave up a 54 yard punt return in the first quarter.
