  • Saul Marin finds his niche in...

    For many of us, finding our niche in a particular task takes a long time. Some of us find it early in life, while others find it later. I am always seeking out students who are not involved in activities to consider giving a sport a try in hopes they will find their niche. 

    Most of the time I point them in the direction of track, simply because there are 14 events in which kids have an opportunity to excel. For Saul Marin, a freshman at LaRue County High School, it appears he has found his niche in track.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks hammer Hart

    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 Tuesday evening 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.
