  • BASEBALL: Hawks looking for...

    Hawks head baseball coach Eric Allen is counting on shoring up team defense and more consistency at the plate to point his LaRue County High School squad in the winning direction.

    The Hawks, with four wins scattered among 12 losses through last week, are suffering the growing pains of a young team. In such a situation, Allen said the willingness to keep working hard to improve takes on more importance than the win-loss column.

  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to Green

    What LaRue County coach Eric Allen saw from the Hawks in the seventh inning is what he wants to see the entire game.

    Trailing by three runs, the Hawks mounted a furious comeback, getting a two-run single from freshman Briar Holt and loading the bases before the visiting Green County Dragons managed to escape with a 4-3 victory in an 18th District game.

  • SOFTBALL: LaRue rolls past John...

    Peyton Gardner enjoys the rare occasions she gets to see left-handed pitching, and she took full advantage Tuesday evening against visiting 5th Region rival John Hardin.

    The left-handed hitting Gardner fell a home run short of the cycle and drove in four runs to lead the LaRue County Lady Hawks past the Lady Bulldogs, 15-0 in four innings.

    Gardner, a senior center fielder, laced a three-run double to left-center field in the fourth to enforce the mercy rule.
