  • 18TH DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: Hawks lose 65-61 to Green

    The LaRue County Hawks lost Tuesday night in the opening round of the 18th District Tournament.

    LaRue County shot 34.5 percent in the first half to Green County’s scorching 60 percent, but the Hawks were still within 34-27 at the break after senior forward Caleb Sheffer made 1-of-2 free throws during a lonely trip to the foul line since he was fouled at the buzzer.

  • LaRue prepares to host District Tournament

    Both the girls and boys basketball teams at LaRue County High School are looking to right the ship heading into their respective district tournaments, after middle-of-the-road regular seasons.

    It’s been an especially difficult season for the Lady Hawks, as they lost Miss Kentucky Basketball in Ivy Brown, and a player who averaged over 22 points per game in Alexis Brewer.

  • Yingling's transfer a plus for Lady Hawks

    Alyson Yingling has taken an unorthodox route to being a senior starter on the LaRue County Lady Hawks basketball team. Her family moved to Hodgenville from Fairbanks, Alaska, during her junior year. That move would be difficult for anyone, but for a high school student going into her upperclassmen years, it was especially difficult.
