  • FOOTBALL: LaRue falls to Shelby

    LaRue County didn’t get off to the best start Friday and the Hawks’ night didn’t get much better.

    Host Shelby County scored on its first two possessions before the Rockets pulled away for a 28-0 win at Robert Doyle Stadium and their first season-opening victory since 2007.

    It was also a frustrating night for LaRue County’s boys’ basketball team as its senior backcourt of Gabe Shirley (quarterback) and Kelton Ford (wide receiver) both suffered ankle injuries and didn’t return.

  • SOCCER: Hawks win season opener

     The first week of soccer matches saw good fortune for the Hawks of LaRue County High School. 

    The Hawks soccer team opened the 18th district season play Aug. 13 with an impressive 8-2 victory over the visiting Campbellsville Eagles. On the attack, seniors Alex Cook, Rico Collado and Marshall Metcalf continued their assault on the record books.

    Collado gathered his troops and fed a diagonal-running Metcalf with a pinpoint pass. At 5:32 p.m., Metcalf's score was perhaps the first score in the state.
