  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to Green

    What LaRue County coach Eric Allen saw from the Hawks in the seventh inning is what he wants to see the entire game.

    Trailing by three runs, the Hawks mounted a furious comeback, getting a two-run single from freshman Briar Holt and loading the bases before the visiting Green County Dragons managed to escape with a 4-3 victory in an 18th District game.
