  • Dawson wins 5th Region Golf Tourney, advances to State

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson finished first out of 93 golfers Tuesday to capture the 5th Region Golf Tourney at Elizabethtown Country Club with an even par 72. In 2013 he walked away with a region runner-up at South Park Golf Course in Louisville, therefore he was one of six individuals expected to win this year’s tourney.

    Cameron is the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines did it in 1997. With the tournament win, Dawson qualified for the KHSAA State Golf Tourney in back-to-back seasons.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks win on the road

    After finding ways to lose three straight weeks, the LaRue County Hawks found a way to win. On the road, no less.

    The Hawks kept the Russell County Lakers scoreless on all eight of their possessions and senior Koy Lindsey’s fumble recovery on the Lakers’ final offensive play gave the Hawks three turnovers as LaRue County held on, 14-10.

    Junior running back Marquis Franklin broke the LaRue County Hawks Football record of longest play from scrimmage when he was able to take the ball 99 yards on the first play from scrimmage Sept. 26 at Marion County. The previous record of 96 yards from scrimmage was held by Chris Singleton and Justin Thurman during the 2005 season. Franklin also now shares the 99-yard record with 16 other players from across the state since 1972.

  • VOLLEYBALL: Lady Hawks defeat Hart

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks inched closer to the .500 mark with a 3-0 win (25-7, 25-22, 25-8) win over visiting 18th District rival Hart County on Sept. 29.

    Sophomore outside hitter Cidney Neagle led the Lady Hawks (12-13, 4-1 district) with 10 kills, four aces, one block and one dig, while junior middle hitter Chloe Owen added seven aces, six digs and five kills.

  • GOLF: Dawson finishes strong to win Region

    LaRue County sophomore Cameron Dawson’s day at the Boys’ 5th Region Golf Tournament didn’t get off to a good start, but he couldn’t have envisioned a better ending.

    Dawson rebounded from a bogey on his first hole to fire an even-par 72 to win the tournament Sept. 30 at Elizabethtown Country Club. He became the first LaRue County golfer to win the region since Chad Hines in 1997.
