  • BASEBALL: Hawks pound Warren...

    The LaRue County Hawks are starting to get on a roll.

    With the temperatures in the 30s and the wind chill making it feel more like in the 20s, not to mention snowflakes swirling from the third inning on, the young Hawks pounded out 11 hits and junior right-hander John Selman tossed a two-hitter for a 14-2 rout of the visiting Warren Central Dragons on Friday night.

  • Lady Hawks off to solid season

     The Lady Hawks used hot bats, strong defense and solid teamwork to open their season March 18 with a sound defeat (13-2) of visiting Adair County.

    LaRue put away the Lady Indians in five innings.

    Coach Rocky Cundiff said he couldn’t ask for the opener to go any better.

    “We had a team effort and it showed,” he said. “We’ve practiced as a team and the hard work showed up in that game.  Our defense was very solid.”

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks demolish...

    LaRue County senior pitcher Emillee Cundiff had a lot in common with the John Hardin Lady Bulldogs on Monday. Most notably, they both had trouble getting on base.

    Fortunately for Cundiff, her Lady Hawks teammates had no such issues.

    Junior second baseman Delany Eastridge was a home run short of the cycle and was 1-of-3 LaRue County players with at least three RBIs as the Lady Hawks pounded out 14 hits in a 12-0 rout of the host Lady Bulldogs in five innings.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to Bruins

    The Central Hardin Bruins started fast Monday evening, while the LaRue County Hawks never got going.

    The Bruins scored five runs the first three innings, which was more than enough for the Central Hardin trio of senior Seth Givan, sophomore Blake Wheeler and freshman Brendan Grider, who shut down the Hawks for a 5-0 victory at Central Park.

    Central Hardin is off to a 3-0 start after finishing last season with back-to-back losses in the 17th District Tournament final and 5th Region Tournament quarterfinal.

  • Bevars earns spot in Basketball...

     LEXINGTON – Ron Bevars developed an interest in basketball during elementary school, but he didn’t find much encouragement at home.

    As he awaited the announcement Tuesday of his selection for the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame, he clearly recalled the words of his father, Lloyde.

    “You can’t ever make a living bouncing that ball,” he would say. “You need to get yourself a trade.”
