  • Lady Hawks track team begins season with small goals

    Like the sage who said a 1,000-mile journey begins with a single step, Lady Hawks girls’ track coach Laura Kudrna is counting on her charges attaining small goals that will enable them to meet larger ones.
    “Our goal for the season is to beat our previous time,” said the Hodgenville Elementary School fifth-grade teacher in her second year as coach. “I don’t care if it’s a 10th of a second off the previous time; every little bit helps and counts.”

  • Hawks prepare to multi-task as track season opens

    Multi-tasking will be the major descriptor of this season’s Hawks boys track team under new coach Drew Simpson.
    “The number of students we have on the team is our strength and weakness,” said Simpson, who substitute teaches for the LaRue County school system. “We have a small high school team and because of that all of my athletes have to compete in four events.”
    Perhaps because of the few number of athletes, however, he has found a more personal team, one with heart and a lot of determination, he said.

  • Hawks ready for game changes

    With six starting seniors and one junior returning from last season’s 24-9 team, LaRue County’s Hawks varsity baseball team looks to be on deck for another winning season.
    “I think pitching will be our biggest strength at the end of the year once we are at full strength,” said Chris Price, eight-year head coach who said he’s relinquishing his coaching position at the end of this season in order to pursue a Rank I (post master’s degree certification) in administration.

  • Lady Hawks win season opener

     The LaRue County Lady Hawks won their softball season opener Tuesday with an 11-1 victory over Nelson County's Lady Cards.

    The win took six innings as senior Brittany Enlow struck out seven and five players collected two or more hits. The Lady Hawks scored four runs in the first inning; one in the second and sixth innings; and five in the third.

    The Lady Cards' only run came in the third inning.

    Kyle Sheeran, 6’ senior guard from the LaRue County Hawks boys basketball team, has been selected to play in the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches East-West All Star game at Transylvania University. The game will be played 5 p.m. Saturday, March 17.

  • Lady Hawks prepare for another successful season

    Despite a 14-22 record, LaRue County High School’s Lady Hawks softball squad powered through post-season play, finishing last season as Fifth Region Tournament runner-up.
    With 12 players returning this season Coach Aaron Howell is looking forward to continued strong play, though he admits most of his athletes are underclassmen.
    “Our team could best be described as young, which is also our weakness,” said the nine-year teaching veteran in his second year at the Lady Hawks’ helm.
