  • 5th Region Tournament schedule changed due to weather

    Mother Nature must not be a basketball fan.

    After postponing and canceling games during the regular season, Mother Nature has done the same in the postseason, pushing back the opening games of the 5th and 3rd Region tournaments after the area was hit with snow, sleet and ice.

    “You just have to deal with what Mother Nature gives you,” LaRue County coach Paul Childress said. “Everyone is dealing with it. There’s nothing you can do about it. You just have to be able to roll with it.”

  • Hawks fall to Green in District championship

     HORSE CAVE – After playing so well to start the fourth quarter, the LaRue County Hawks were left to wonder what might have been had they not dug so big of a hole Friday night.

    Second-seeded LaRue County trailed the top-seeded Green County Dragons by 25 late in the third quarter and rallied to within single digits, but the deficit was too great to dig out of in an 85-68 loss in the Boys’ 18th District Tournament title game at Caverna.

    HORSE CAVE The LaRue County Hawks felt like they were in great shape at halftime Tuesday night, despite being down five points to the Caverna Colonels.

    That’s because the Hawks’ 1-3-1 half-court trap was starting to bother the Colonels, and LaRue County refused to go away despite several unfortunate breaks.

    Coach Paul Childress told his team to be patient at halftime, and it paid off in a big way.
