  • 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.

  • LaRue tops four teams in weekend games

    Junior Kyle Meredith hit a solo home run to lead the visiting LaRue County Hawks to a 7-5 win over 18th District rival Green County on April 28.
    Meredith also doubled, drove in two runs, scored twice and stole a base.
    The Hawks (12-5 overall, 3-1 district) moved one step closer to locking up the top seed for the upcoming district tournament, but the win didn’t come without some late-game drama.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks on a roll

    The LaRue County Hawks baseball team fell 3-2 to Green County April 19.

    Junior Slade Owens took the loss, allowing 10 hits and two earned runs in seven innings. He struck out one.
