       Courtney Johnson is batting .333 with two home runs and seven RBI’s in the last two games. 

  • Baseball roundup

     The LaRue County Hawks got off to a slow start, but once they warmed up, the Caverna Colonels couldn’t stop them.

    The Hawks collected 19 hits, including six for extra bases, on their way to a 20-1 pounding of the visiting Colonels on March 25 in an 18th District game.

    Caverna took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first before LaRue County tied it in the bottom half of the inning. The Hawks erupted for eight runs in the second and 11 more in the third.

  • SOFTBALL PREVIEW: 'Win the Region ... go to State'

     LaRue’s Lady Hawks softball team finished pre-spring-break play with two wins, improving their early season record to 5-2.

    Coach Aaron Howell’s LaRue County squad is experienced with every player among the starters having at least one year of varsity play.

    “We have a strong veteran group of players led by my three seniors – Peyton Gardner, Courtney Johnson, and Brigitte Skaggs,” said Howell, a math teacher at the high school. “Leadership is strength.”

  • CROSS COUNTRY: New season begins

    With most athletes returning from last year’s boys’ track team, LaRue County coach Orion Tucker is looking for a strong showing from his squad this season.

    Leading the charge is senior Adam Sandidge, clocking a personal best 4:32 mile to win at Grayson County March 28. It was the third win in the mile this season for the runner who placed fourth in cross country competition at state last fall.   

    He also finished first in the two-mile race in 10:07. He holds the school two-mile record (9:52) which he sat last year.
