  • REGION SOCCER: It's tournament time

  • Soccer: Lady Hawks advance in district

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks advanced to the Girls’ 18th District Soccer Tournament championship — and secured a spot in the 5th Region Tournament — for the third straight year Thursday night.

    Sophomore forward Gillian Nunn, sophomore midfielder Hattie Ward and freshman forward Natalie Wolf each scored in a shootout, lifting LaRue County to a 4-3 win over Hart County in the district semifinals at Marion County.

    The Lady Hawks (10-7) advance to face Taylor County at 6 tonight.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks fall to E'town

    Freshman Kane Harris had a big game catching the ball Friday night for LaRue County. Unfortunately for the host Hawks, the guy who caught the second-most passes from LaRue County senior quarterback Caleb Sheffer doesn’t play for the Hawks.

    Elizabethtown junior cornerback Dalonza Cates, intercepted three passes from Sheffer, who entered the game second in the area in passing yards, to highlight the Panthers’ 41-0 win in a Class 3-A, District 3 game.

  • SOCCER: LaRue advances to 18th District Final

    Senior defender Miguel Martinez and junior forwards Ethan Hawkins and Chase Watson each scored as the LaRue County Hawks held off homestanding Marion County, 3-2 on Tuesday night in the Boys’ 18th District Soccer Tournament semifinals.

    The Hawks (12-9-1) are back in the district championship — and the 5th Region Tournament — after missing out last season.

    Senior keeper Holden Blair made six saves for LaRue County, which beat the Knights (3-14-3) for the second time this season.

  • Volleyball ready for district tourney

        One of the most difficult things to do in sports is getting your team to peak at the right time.

    As the 18th district tournament approaches, Head Coach Ben Schell and the Lady Hawks volleyball team expect to be playing their best volleyball of the season.

    “We have played some of our best volleyball of the season the past couple weeks,” said Schell. 

  • Boys eye first district championship

        The LaRue County Boys Soccer team will take an 11-9 record into Tuesday night’s 18th District Tournament as they play tournament host Marion County in semi-final action. The Hawks earned the #2 seed in the tournament with regular season wins over Marion County, Hart County and Campbellsville. The only district loss came to Taylor County.

  • Ladies seek back-to-back championships

        Coming off a 15-3 record last season, and the loss of six seniors, Head Coach Laura Kudrna knew she would experience some growing pains and have to adjust to a new type of squad. The Lady Hawks soccer team has certainly proved people wrong, posting a solid 9-7 record this season.

        LaRue County will enter the 18th District Tournament as the #2 seed and play Hart County at 8 p.m. Tuesday in semi-final action at Marion County.

  • Golf team finishes strong at Region tourny

    Head Coach Justin Craft and the LaRue County High School boys’ golf team had plenty to smile about last Tuesday as they were able to post their best finish in 18 years.

    LaRue County finished fourth out of 18 full teams. The last time the golf team finished this high in the region was with a championship in 1996.
