High School Sports

  • 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.”

  • Lady Hawks fall to E’town

    LaRue County’s Lady Hawks had a rough first quarter Jan. 23 as they played the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Stadium.
    They gave up seven turnovers and misfired on their first 12 shots from the field.
    “That’s what they do on their home floor,” LaRue’s Coach Travis Wootton said. “I think it was nerves and figuring things out. They’re one of the best defensive teams in the state. You have to be aggressive against them and I thought they were more aggressive than us in the first quarter.”

  • Mat Hawks take disappointing second at State Duals

    What happened? This is the question being asked over and over again to the LaRue County High School Mat Hawks after their second place finish at State Duals competition on Saturday in Lexington.
    “We were overconfident and Union County came in hungry and motivated and wanted it more than us,” said head coach Gary Canter. “We wrestled flat. We didn’t’ look good all day long. When you add in the fact we had a wrestler or two sick and injured, we had several obstacles to overcome right at the start of the day.”

  • Mat Hawks second at State Duals

    The LaRue County Hawks’ quest for another State Duals wrestling championship started strong Saturday, but fizzled late.

    The final match began at 138 pounds and LaRue County led 23-15 after the heavyweights before getting blanked the rest of the final.
