  • 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

    LOUISVILLE — LaRue County freshman Cameron Dawson joined elite company Monday.

    Dawson shot a 3-over-par 75 at the Boys’ 5th Region Golf Tournament on Monday at South Park Country Club in Louisville to earn a spot in next week’s Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac/KHSAA State Golf Championships.

    Dawson became only the fourth LaRue County player to qualify for the state tournament since 1999. Kyle Meredith did it in 2010, Cory Cox in 2004 and Tyson Catlett in 2003. The state tournament will be held Oct. 8-9 at Bowling Green Country Club.

  • Seniors honored Wednesday

    The Hawks defeated Wayne County 4-0 Saturday in varsity soccer action.
    Coach Derek Bell said the entire team earned MVP honors.

    “Saturday was a chance for the Hawks to get it together and become the team they promise to be,” said Bell. “Without a home win or clean sheet this season, could they turn the corner? The answer was yes and how.”

    Within the first minute, junior Christian Hensley scored the opening goal. It was followed by a goal from junior Miguel Martinez.
