  • BASKETBALL: Lady Hawks fall to...

    Lady Hawk senior Alyson Yingling had a team-high 15 points Saturday in the opening game of the Hillbilly’s Tease Valentines Day Shootout at the Dawg Pound.

    Yingling also pulled down 16 rebounds in the Lady Hawks’ 66-40 loss to John Hardin’s Lady Bulldogs.

    John Hardin was in control for most of the game, trailing just once at 5-4 after LaRue County’s Presley Brown buried a 3 off an assist from fellow freshman guard Mallory Williams with 4:01 left in the first quarter.

  • WKU's freshmen take over...

    Western Kentucky University Lady Toppers overcame foul trouble by their leading scorers and got strong play from a pair of freshman off the bench as the Lady Toppers secured a 74-60 win over Marshall on Saturday afternoon in E.A. Diddle Arena.

  • LaRue prepares to host District...

    Both the girls and boys basketball teams at LaRue County High School are looking to right the ship heading into their respective district tournaments, after middle-of-the-road regular seasons.

    Lady Hawks

    It’s been an especially difficult season for the Lady Hawks, as they lost Miss Kentucky Basketball in Ivy Brown, and a player who averaged over 22 points per game in Alexis Brewer.

  • Yingling's transfer a plus...

    Alyson Yingling has taken an unorthodox route to being a senior starter on the LaRue County Lady Hawks basketball team. Her family moved to Hodgenville from Fairbanks, Alaska, during her junior year. That move would be difficult for anyone, but for a high school student going into her upperclassmen years, it was especially difficult.

  • BASKETBALL: Hawks outplayed at...

    Taylor County posted its 18th victory by double digits and its eighth by 30 or more points by dominating LaRue County 68-27 at home on Friday night.
    Six of seven Cardinals scored in each of the first two quarters as Taylor County built a 43-13 cushion after the Hawks managed only three points in the second period.
    Another three-point third made it 56-16.
    David Sloan led a balanced TCHS attack with 17 points while Ezra Oliver, Quentin Goodin and Cam Morgeson had 12 apiece.

  • Teen starts drive for little...

    A LaRue County High School student has started a drive to assist young athletes.

    Briar Holt, a sophomore, played baseball from the time he was 4 – and later branched into soccer. He played for the varsity baseball team last spring but has decided to hang up his cleats this year.

    “I’m focusing on academics this year,” he said.

    His heart is still in the sport, however. Working with LaRue County Park and Recreation, he has organized a hand-me-down program for used baseball gear – gloves, bats, cleats and pants.
