  • BASEBALL: Hawks hammer Hart

    MUNFORDVILLE — Nothing is better for a team than controlling its own destiny and the LaRue County Hawks are in that position.

    LaRue County freshman Jaxon Boley shut the Hart County Raiders down and the Hawks scored five runs in the final four innings to pull away for a 6-0 victory in an 18th District game Tuesday evening at Raider Field.

    The Hawks gave Coach Eric Allen a good birthday present, the program’s first 20-win season in his three-year tenure. It’s a big stepping stone for a young team coming off a 10-23 season.
