  • BASEBALL: Hawks fall to North...

    The Hawks lost 14-4 Monday to the North Hardin Trojans.
    Everything went LaRue County’s way the first four innings.
    Junior right-hander Colby Skaggs struck out six of the first 17 hitters he faced, including the side in the second. Skaggs pitched around an RBI single by North Hardin senior Trevor Vandermolen in the third, then breezed through the fourth in 12 pitches.

  • TENNIS: Maddie Lee's...

    Senior Madison Lee has been a great example of a model student-athlete for the LaRue County Hawks Tennis program. Lee carries a 4.0 GPA, assumes various leadership roles at school and has been the #1 seeded girl’s single tennis player the last three seasons.
    Lee has been playing competitive tennis since seventh-grade, and is currently playing her sixth season for the Lady Hawks Tennis program. She credits her brother Zachary for the main reason for playing.

  • Cruse control: Trishtian Cruse...

    When one thinks about Lady Hawks Softball over the past six years, one of the names that come up is senior Trishtian Cruse.  
    Cruse has been an integral part of the program and a consistent leader on and off the field.
    As of Monday, Cruse is batting .667 with 16 hits (12 singles, 2 doubles, 1 triple and 1 inside the park homerun). She has started for the varsity program at shortstop since her eighth-grade season.
    Cruse has had a ball in her hand very early on.

  • Durbin's routine has led to...

     For the last six years, Kristina Durbin has had a routine that few teenagers would want.

  • BASEBALL: John Selman brings...

     The urban dictionary defines the words baseball junkie as someone who eats and breathes baseball. 

    To claim that junior John Selman is a baseball junkie is an understatement. Hawks head coach Eric Allen said, “This day and age there’s not a lot of high school kids that are baseball junkies, but John is definitely that.”

    Baseball has been a big part of Selman’s life since the age of 2. He has been playing on a team since the age of 5.

  • Hawks too hot for Warren Central...

    The LaRue County Hawks are on a roll.

    With the temperatures in the 30s and the wind chill making it feel more like in the 20s, not to mention snowflakes swirling from the third inning on, the young Hawks pounded out 11 hits and junior right-hander John Selman tossed a two-hitter for a 14-2 rout of the visiting Warren Central Dragons on Friday night.
