  • Hawks ‘bleed blue’ for the week

    Traditionally summer basketball has consisted of teams getting together for practices and then attending a week-long summer basketball camp on a university campus. These camps are usually very expensive for individuals and more focus is put on competing against other teams.

    So, instead of loading up and traveling to a summer basketball camp, Head Coach Paul Childress decided to do something different, and host his first ever team camp. This team camp took place on the LCMS/LCHS campus. Twenty-five players in grades 9-12 attended the overnight week-long camp.

  • 18th District softball...

    Three base running mistakes and seven fielding errors haunted the LaRue County Lady Hawks in last week’s 18th District Softball Tournament championship.

    Top-seeded Green County won its second straight district title on May 20 by a 7-3 score at Hart County.

    “I’m sick,” Lady Hawks coach Rocky Cundiff said. “We had two major base-running errors, but I’m more sick over the defensive errors. We spotted them six runs, and you can’t do that. You just can’t play like that.”

  • New coaches at LCHS

    The LaRue County Cheer Program is transitioning into new leadership this spring. Danielle VanderMolen will oversee the LCHS Competitive Cheer Program while Jennifer Thrasher will assist.

  • District Champs

     Top-seeded LaRue County erupted for 11 runs in the first two innings en route to a 14-0 rout of Green County to win the 18th District baseball championship in May.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks keep winning

    MUNFORDVILLE — Nothing is better for a team than controlling its own destiny and the LaRue County Hawks are in that position.
    LaRue County freshman Jaxon Boley shut the Hart County Raiders down and the Hawks scored five runs in the final four innings to pull away for a 6-0 victory in an 18th District game May 5 at Raider Field.
    The Hawks gave Coach Eric Allen a good birthday present, the program’s first 20-win season in his three-year tenure. It’s a big stepping stone for a young team coming off a 10-23 season.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks win Abe...

    The Lady Hawks blanked Hopkinsville, 5-0, Saturday in the Abe Lincoln Classic.

    Sophomore Kourtnee Davenport went 3-for-4 with two RBIs, while sophomore Chasity Bryant added two singles and a run.
    Loss to Taylor

  • COLUMN: No sport like wrestling

    My mother has been nagging me to write something.

    But that’s not why I decided to do it.

    I’ve been inspired by a book by Nolan Zavoral entitled “A Season On The Mat.” The book takes you into the 1996-97 season of Dan Gable and his Iowa Hawkeyes wrestling team.

    I just finished my first year of coaching middle school wrestling with Cody Gibbons.
