  • Hawk seniors complement strengths

    The three senior players on LaRue County High School’s basketball team complement each other’s strengths well, according to head coach Paul Childress.
    Where one stands out on defense, the others show strong skills in free throw shooting or searing the nets with three-pointers.
    Kyle Sheeran, averaging 18.3 points per game, is the long range sharpshooter, connecting on 38 percent of his trey attempts.

    “We hope to have her back as soon as possible,” he said.

    Statistics are sometimes misleading, or at least they don’t tell the whole story when it comes to describing the value that LaRue County High School’s senior basketball players have been to their team.
    Take Lady Hawks’ Shana Zajdel, for example.
    “Shana’s stats aren’t going to tell you what she has meant to our basketball team over the last four to five years,” said Lady Hawks’ coach Travis Wootton. “She has been one of the best defensive players in the region during this time.”
