  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks defeat E'town

    If Friday really was their last night playing in a LaRue County uniform, twins Lyndsay and Valerie Whitlock went out in style.

    The seniors, both in the starting batting order for the first time in eight games, reached base seven times in a combined eight plate appearance and each scored three times as the Lady Hawks ended the regular season with a 9-3 win against the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

  • Tennis teams battle it out in 5th Region tournament

    The first day of the 5th Region tennis tournament brought local teams some wins and some losses, but more importantly, uninterrupted play despite rain showers earlier Friday.
    First-round play in the girls’ draws from the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College courts saw LaRue County advance three of four entrants into Monday’s second round, including both doubles squads.
    No. 7 seed Paige Nalley of LaRue County upset Hannah Rogers, Bethlehem Banshee’s No. 2 singles player, 6-2, 6-0.

  • Hawks, Lady Hawks place in top ten at track conference

    The LaRue County High School Hawks and Lady Hawks each placed ninth at the Lincoln Trail Heartland Conference meet May 10 at LCHS.
    “It may not look good in the standings due to the serious competition from North, John, Bardstown and E’town, but we actually did very well,” said LaRue Coach Jeremy Blair. “We set 21 season best performances –  which is encouraging for this point in the season.”

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks defeat John Hardin, fall to Marion

    After his team had blown eight leads in the final two innings, first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell thought his Lady Hawks could be in line for another late-game setback May 10 while visiting cousin Corey Yates and his John Hardin Lady Bulldogs.

    Instead, the Lady Hawks finally caught a break in the top of the ninth inning as junior shortstop Megan Smith reached base on a no-out error and scored two batters later on a groundout by senior right fielder Cassady Crim as they held on for a 6-5 win.

  • Weight changes coming in high school wrestling

    The National Federation of High School Associations has changed the landscape of prep wrestling.
    In its meeting April 4-6 in Indianapolis, the NFHS wrestling rules committee voted on several changes.
    Among them is the first complete weight-class overhaul in 23 years. Beginning with the 2011-12 season, weight classes are 106 pounds, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285.
    LaRue County coach Gary Canter said the weight classes are similar to what they were when he wrestled in high school in the 1970s.
