  • Hawks beginning to mesh as team

    The LaRue County Soccer Hawks lost their opening game on Aug. 20, 9-1, to district foe Marion County.

    Senior forward Curtis Milby scored the visiting Hawks’ lone goal – and first for the team this season.  Casey Brooks had his first assist for the varsity team.

    Junior goalkeeper Holden Blair had 11 saves.

    Quintin Majors, Miguel Martinez, Chase Watson and Milby also took shots.

  • Lady Hawks off to bright start 'one day at a time'

    Having brought home an 18th District runner-up trophy last season, LaRue County High School’s girls’ soccer team is taking it one game at a time this year, according to girls’ head coach Laura Kudrna.

    “We analyze our strengths and weaknesses and learn from mistakes,” said Kudrna, who teaches fifth grade at Hodgenville Elementary School.

    “We become better than the last game because we take the time to discuss what we must do to become a more cohesive team.”

  • Lady Hawks open season with win over Caverna

    The Lady Hawks Volleyball Team got their season off to a good start with a 3-0 victory Aug. 22 over 18th District rival Caverna (25-7, 25-4, 25-8).

    The Lady Hawks were on their game from the service line as six players combined for 25 aces.

    Junior outside hitter Alyson Yingling led the way with nine aces, while senior middle hitter Allison Evans and sophomore outside hitter Chloe Owen chipped in with five apiece.

  • Hawks fall in season opener

    The LaRue County Hawks battled Washington County’s Commanders Saturday, falling 20-7 in the Don Franklin Auto Alumni Bowl.

    The Hawks had 20 brand new starters on the field – five sophomores and two freshmen on defense alone.

    The Hawks piled up 161 yards on the ground as sophomore Damarcus McCray, senior Kody Key-Close and junior Tyree Jones each had at least 37 rushing yards. The Commanders had 27 less rushing yards on just one fewer carry.

  • Lady Hawks show leadership, speed

    Though her girls’ cross country team is few in numbers, Coach Jackie Harley is hopeful determination, endurance and some runners with great speed will lead the LaRue County High School team to a successful season.

    Veterans returning for the Lady Hawks include juniors Kristina Durbin, Kaelyn Herrin and Amanda Brewer. Seventh grader Clair Keller is back after sitting out a season. The coach said she is close to running her average time from two years ago.  

  • Underclassmen gain experience in scrimmage

    The LaRue County High School Hawks’ opening scrimmage “went well for the most part,” said head football coach Josh Jaggers.

    The Hawks played against Breckinridge County Friday with five sophomores and a freshman starting on defense, and five sophomores starting on offense.

    After senior Michael Neal injured his wrist, “we had 11 new starters on the field from last year … that’s right, 11 totally new faces,” said Jaggers.

  • Coach Bell changes formation, strategy

    Though losing 10 seniors who had been together from jayvee through varsity to graduation last year, new LaRue County High School’s boys’ head soccer coach Derek Bell feels optimistic looking at this season’s Hawks.

    “On the plus side the enthusiasm and drive by the team should make up for the continuity of the now departed seniors,” said Bell.

    With different people employing different skills sets, Bell has adjusted his on-field strategy.

  • Lady Hawks a favorite for Region

    With seven varsity players returning, LaRue County High School volleyball coach Ben Schell can all but dispense with teaching and explaining the basics of the game in favor of more in-depth work on winning.

    “Our biggest strength as a team at this point is our experience at the varsity level,” said the Lady Hawks’ coach. “We will have more competitive practices because several players will be competing for playing time.”
