  • Lady Hawks progress in regional tourney

    It’s as if first-year LaRue County coach Aaron Howell was serenading his Lady Hawks with the sweet words of … Jim Valvano?

    After his team rallied for an extra-inning win in Monday’s quarterfinals, the Lady Hawks put on their rally caps again, fighting back from a huge hole in the first inning to stun the North Hardin Trojans, 7-6 in 10 innings Tuesday in the late 5th Region Softball Tournament semifinal in Hodgenville.

  • LaRue advances to softball semifinals

    Two runs in the eighth inning Monday extended LaRue County’s softball season and completed a 3-1 upset of Adair County in the opening round of the 5th Region Softball Tournament being played in Hodgenville.
    The Lady Hawks’ senior catcher Ellen Huff stroked a tiebreaking single in the top of the eighth inning to fuel the win.
    The Lady Hawks (13-21) will play North Hardin (18-17) in the semifinals at 8 tonight as LaRue tries to make it back to the final for the first time since winning the tournament while also playing host in 2005.

    Senior twins Lyndsay and Valarie Whitlock both were 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.

  • REGIONAL BASEBALL: Central Hardin hosts games

    On first glance, the bottom half of the 5th Region Baseball Tournament bracket appears to be loaded.

    Three of the four teams with winning records in the tournament, which will be held at Central Hardin, are in bottom half of the bracket. All three teams have 24 or more victories.

    Defending region champion Central Hardin, the 17th District champion, meets the 19th District runner-ups Nelson County Cardinals (12-20) at 6:30 p.m. Monday. The Bruins (29-4) beat Nelson County, 12-0 on May 14.

  • REGIONAL SOFTBALL: LaRue plays host

    Last year, the Central Hardin Lady Bruins hoped to meet the Green County Lady Dragons in the 5th Region Softball Tournament final.

    That didn’t happen. And it won’t happen this year, either.

    During Saturday morning’s region tournament draw meeting at host LaRue County, the ninth-ranked Lady Dragons (28-6) and the No. 11 Lady Bruins (31-4) both drew into the top bracket, meaning they could meet in the early semifinal at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

  • BASEBALL: HAWKS WIN DISTRICT TOURNAMENT

    LaRue County completed its decade-long 18th District Baseball Tournament sweep.

    And go figure, the Hawks capped it off by winning their 10th consecutive district championship by 10 runs. There were 10s all around.

    Junior Slade Owens had three hits and four RBIs, junior Kyle Sheeran broke out of a hitting funk and junior pitcher Wesley Kessinger untangled himself out of a handful of jams as LaRue County defeated Green County, 11-1 in six innings in Wednesday night’s championship game at Hart County.

  • 18th District Baseball: Hawks defeat Hart

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County coach Chris Price thought the Hawks looked way too timid Monday evening.

    In the first five minutes, they allowed the first two batters to reach base. They committed an error. And they looked nothing like the nine-time defending 18th District Baseball Tournament champions.

    Then came a 27-minute lightning delay, during which Price reminded the Hawks to become more assertive.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks fall to Green

    Brigitte Skaggs had the Green County Lady Dragons on the ropes.

    The LaRue County freshman pitcher had struck out nine batters through 6 1/3 innings, keeping the Lady Hawks in the game against the four-time defending 18th District Softball Tournament champions at Hart County High School on Tuesday.

    Then came the seventh inning.

    Second-seeded LaRue County committed two costly errors – including one that led to the game-winning run – as top-seeded Green County rallied for a 3-2 victory to win its fifth consecutive district title.
