  • 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.

  • Homecoming a bust for Hawks

    Things went from bad to worse pretty quickly Friday night for homestanding LaRue County.

    Committing all five of their turnovers on five consecutive possessions in the first half, with four leading to touchdowns by Russell County, the winless Hawks could never get anything going as the Lakers rolled to a 55-6 win for LaRue’s homecoming.

    The opening kick was squibbed so it wouldn’t go to Russell County’s standout senior tandem of Blake Ellis and Evan Fletcher.

  • Hawks roll on Senior Night

    The Hawks were missing a pair of key seniors Oct. 2 but managed to defeat Campbellsville 3-1.

    Senior Night looked like it would be a long night when the team fell behind early on. However, goals from seniors Curtis Milby and Raymundo Perez – and a first-ever varsity goal by Casey Brooks – led to a win.

    Brooks played as a striker for the first time.

    “The team played finally as just that – a team each working for the other. It was a most rewarding game,” said Head Coach Derek Bell.

  • Lady Hawks extend winning streak to 12

    The Lady Hawks extended their winning streak to 12 with a win over visiting Hart County Wednesday. The following evening, Green County snapped their streak.

  • Ladies win Anderson tourney

    Despite missing three starters Saturday, the LaRue County Lady Hawks didn’t miss a beat in winning the Anderson County Invitational.
