  • Girls basketball: NELSON 38, LARUE 33

    The Lady Cards took advantage of the early lead to win 38-33.

    LaRue County, which lost its third straight, led 12-3 after the first quarter but was held to single digits the final three periods.

  • Hawk seniors complement strengths

    The three senior players on LaRue County High School’s basketball team complement each other’s strengths well, according to head coach Paul Childress.
    Where one stands out on defense, the others show strong skills in free throw shooting or searing the nets with three-pointers.
    Kyle Sheeran, averaging 18.3 points per game, is the long range sharpshooter, connecting on 38 percent of his trey attempts.

  • Alexis Brewer out due to injury in Green game

    Alexis Brewer, freshman guard for the Lady Hawks, was injured Friday during the Green County game.
    Brewer had scored 11 points when she was elbowed in the face by Green County’s Micah Jones.
    Lady Hawks Coach Travis Wootton said Brewer’s nose was broken.
    “We hope to have her back as soon as possible,” he said.
    Brewer’s mother, Debbie Brewer, said it doesn’t appear that surgery will be needed. She has another doctor’s appointment in two weeks.

  • Lady Hawk seniors to be honored Feb. 10

    Statistics are sometimes misleading, or at least they don’t tell the whole story when it comes to describing the value that LaRue County High School’s senior basketball players have been to their team.
    Take Lady Hawks’ Shana Zajdel, for example.
    “Shana’s stats aren’t going to tell you what she has meant to our basketball team over the last four to five years,” said Lady Hawks’ coach Travis Wootton. “She has been one of the best defensive players in the region during this time.”
