  • Regional Tennis Tournament has few surprises

    The opening round of the 5th Region Tennis Tournament on Friday at the Freeman Lake Tennis Complex didn’t produce any major upsets, but that doesn’t mean it lacked drama or intrigue.

    Seven matches were tied after two sets, going to a super tiebreaker instead of a third set, and all but two of those involved an area player.

    Central Hardin sophomores Hadley Handel and Chloe Sheeran dropped the first to the North Hardin duo of freshman Mary Kate Dennis and sixth-grader Addison Sutton, but managed to pull even by winning a second set tiebreaker.

  • Freshman Lady Hawks raising expectations

    With each passing season at the high school level of competition a majority of the focus gets put on the varsity programs through newspapers, social media and word of mouth. 

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks Freshman Softball Team has certainly raised some eyebrows over the last few weeks while posting an 18-7 record including big wins over Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, Fairdale, Bullitt Central and North Hardin. This is an impressive turnaround from a 9-19 season last year.  

  • Spring athletes prepare for season-ending tournaments

     The LaRue County High School Sports Programs are seeking improvement as the last few weeks of the regular season conclude and post season play begins.
