  • Hawks defeat Louisville Southern

    Usually hard work and determination pays big dividends for any struggling team. For the LaRue County High School boys soccer team, that was not the case.  
    Five weeks of practice in brutal summer heat gave these young Hawks confidence and a strong, competitive spirit.
    During the first game against North Bullitt, aggressive play and youthful mistakes resulted in a 4-0 loss. Take away two free kicks and a penalty kick and the result is a hard-fought contest between two equal combatants.

  • Lady Hawks’ soccer motivated for a better season

    Give Becky Hawkins this – the LaRue County Lady Hawks’ coach is honest almost to a fault.
    The Lady Hawks went 6-7-4 last season, getting outscored 54-26 and going winless (0-6-2) against 9th District teams.
    “Last year our main goal was not to get mercy ruled. That’s how low of a skill level we had,” Hawkins said. “Now our goal is to play a good game and work hard as best we can. Hopefully that hard work will pay off.”
