High School Sports

  • TENNIS: Maddie Lee's winning disposition

    Senior Madison Lee has been a great example of a model student-athlete for the LaRue County Hawks Tennis program. Lee carries a 4.0 GPA, assumes various leadership roles at school and has been the #1 seeded girl’s single tennis player the last three seasons.
    Lee has been playing competitive tennis since seventh-grade, and is currently playing her sixth season for the Lady Hawks Tennis program. She credits her brother Zachary for the main reason for playing.

  • Cruse control: Trishtian Cruse leads the way

    When one thinks about Lady Hawks Softball over the past six years, one of the names that come up is senior Trishtian Cruse.  
    Cruse has been an integral part of the program and a consistent leader on and off the field.
    As of Monday, Cruse is batting .667 with 16 hits (12 singles, 2 doubles, 1 triple and 1 inside the park homerun). She has started for the varsity program at shortstop since her eighth-grade season.
    Cruse has had a ball in her hand very early on.

  • Durbin's routine has led to track success

     For the last six years, Kristina Durbin has had a routine that few teenagers would want.

  • BASEBALL: John Selman brings commitment to the game

     The urban dictionary defines the words baseball junkie as someone who eats and breathes baseball. 

    To claim that junior John Selman is a baseball junkie is an understatement. Hawks head coach Eric Allen said, “This day and age there’s not a lot of high school kids that are baseball junkies, but John is definitely that.”

    Baseball has been a big part of Selman’s life since the age of 2. He has been playing on a team since the age of 5.

  • Hawks too hot for Warren Central, Thomas Nelson

    The LaRue County Hawks are on a roll.

    With the temperatures in the 30s and the wind chill making it feel more like in the 20s, not to mention snowflakes swirling from the third inning on, the young Hawks pounded out 11 hits and junior right-hander John Selman tossed a two-hitter for a 14-2 rout of the visiting Warren Central Dragons on Friday night.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks pound Warren Central

    The LaRue County Hawks are starting to get on a roll.

    With the temperatures in the 30s and the wind chill making it feel more like in the 20s, not to mention snowflakes swirling from the third inning on, the young Hawks pounded out 11 hits and junior right-hander John Selman tossed a two-hitter for a 14-2 rout of the visiting Warren Central Dragons on Friday night.

  • Lady Hawks off to solid season

     The Lady Hawks used hot bats, strong defense and solid teamwork to open their season March 18 with a sound defeat (13-2) of visiting Adair County.

    LaRue put away the Lady Indians in five innings.

    Coach Rocky Cundiff said he couldn’t ask for the opener to go any better.

    “We had a team effort and it showed,” he said. “We’ve practiced as a team and the hard work showed up in that game.  Our defense was very solid.”

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks demolish John Hardin

    LaRue County senior pitcher Emillee Cundiff had a lot in common with the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Monday. Most notably, they both had trouble getting on base.

    Fortunately for Cundiff, her Lady Hawks teammates had no such issues.

    Junior second baseman Delany Eastridge was a home run short of the cycle and was 1-of-3 LaRue County players with at least three RBIs as the Lady Hawks pounded out 14 hits in a 12-0 rout of the host Lady Bulldogs in five innings.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to Bruins

    The Central Hardin Bruins started fast Monday evening, while the LaRue County Hawks never got going.

    The Bruins scored five runs the first three innings, which was more than enough for the Central Hardin trio of senior Seth Givan, sophomore Blake Wheeler and freshman Brendan Grider, who shut down the Hawks for a 5-0 victory at Central Park.

    Central Hardin is off to a 3-0 start after finishing last season with back-to-back losses in the 17th District Tournament final and 5th Region Tournament quarterfinal.
