  • BASEBALL: Hawks defeat Bulldogs

     Entering Monday’s game at 5th Region rival John Hardin on a season-worst eight-game losing streak, the LaRue County Hawks were badly in need of a pick-me-up.

    Sophomore Colby Skaggs pulled the Hawks out of their slide, throwing a complete-game four-hitter as LaRue County beat the Bulldogs, 5-2.

    Skaggs struck out three and walked three as the Hawks (6-20) won for the first time since April 17 in beating John Hardin (12-14) for the second time this season.

  • Regional Tennis Tournament has...

    The opening round of the 5th Region Tennis Tournament on Friday at the Freeman Lake Tennis Complex didn’t produce any major upsets, but that doesn’t mean it lacked drama or intrigue.

    Seven matches were tied after two sets, going to a super tiebreaker instead of a third set, and all but two of those involved an area player.

    Central Hardin sophomores Hadley Handel and Chloe Sheeran dropped the first to the North Hardin duo of freshman Mary Kate Dennis and sixth-grader Addison Sutton, but managed to pull even by winning a second set tiebreaker.

  • Freshman Lady Hawks raising...

    With each passing season at the high school level of competition a majority of the focus gets put on the varsity programs through newspapers, social media and word of mouth. 

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks Freshman Softball Team has certainly raised some eyebrows over the last few weeks while posting an 18-7 record including big wins over Central Hardin, Elizabethtown, Fairdale, Bullitt Central and North Hardin. This is an impressive turnaround from a 9-19 season last year.  

  • Park and Rec volunteers unveil...

      Several hundred people of all ages swarmed over the refurbished LaRue County Park and Recreation fields April 21 for Opening Day ceremonies. 

    Boys and girls wearing crisp new uniforms, their parents, families and coaches stood at attention for the National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance and the honorary first pitch by local politicians.
