    Campbellsville finished nine points ahead of NCAA Division I program EKU, 100.5 to 91.5.
    The Tigers beat Georgetown College for first-place in the 4x800 meter relay with distance runners Christian Black, Kody Hutchins, David McKellar and Truman Padgett, a former LaRue County High School athlete.
    Padgett also took seventh in the 400-meter dash (52.32).  

  • Softball: Lady Hawks defeat...

    The LaRue County High School Lady Hawks capped off the Florida Beach Bash at Fort Walton Beach April 8 with a 13-3 victory over Louisville Fairdale.
    “Spring break in Florida was a great team building getaway for the softball program,” said Lady Hawk Head Coach Aaron Howell. “I thought our team improved in all areas of the game, particularly pitching and defense. The three losses we had were a combined six runs – two of which we were winning going into the last inning. The competition we played in Florida will only help us during a season.”

  • Baseball: Hawks win three at...

    The LaRue County High School Hawks went 3-2 in last week’s Florida Beach Bash at Fort Walton Beach.
    Coach Chris Price said his defense has been “very inconsistent to this point but is definitely showing improvement.”
    “Losing two pitchers who were starters on the mound last year has been tough to get used to but several guys have stepped up and shown potential. Wesley Kessinger, Trevor Skaggs and Cody Williams have filled in very well for us.”
