  • BASEBALL: HAWKS WIN DISTRICT...

    LaRue County completed its decade-long 18th District Baseball Tournament sweep.

    Junior Slade Owens had three hits and four RBIs, junior Kyle Sheeran broke out of a hitting funk and junior pitcher Wesley Kessinger untangled himself out of a handful of jams as LaRue County defeated Green County, 11-1 in six innings in Wednesday night’s championship game at Hart County.

  • 18th District Baseball: Hawks...

    MUNFORDVILLE — LaRue County coach Chris Price thought the Hawks looked way too timid Monday evening.

    In the first five minutes, they allowed the first two batters to reach base. They committed an error. And they looked nothing like the nine-time defending 18th District Baseball Tournament champions.

    Then came a 27-minute lightning delay, during which Price reminded the Hawks to become more assertive.

  • DISTRICT SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks...

    Brigitte Skaggs had the Green County Lady Dragons on the ropes.

    The LaRue County freshman pitcher had struck out nine batters through 6 1/3 innings, keeping the Lady Hawks in the game against the four-time defending 18th District Softball Tournament champions at Hart County High School on Tuesday.

    Then came the seventh inning.

    Second-seeded LaRue County committed two costly errors – including one that led to the game-winning run – as top-seeded Green County rallied for a 3-2 victory to win its fifth consecutive district title.

  • LaRue County has rubber match...

    All year long, LaRue County coach Aaron Howell has preached to his Lady Hawks about not letting errors snow ball.
    Too often the Lady Hawks let one error turn into two. Or three. And then the runs came.
    What often followed was a late-game collapse as the Lady Hawks lost eight games in which they led after the fifth inning.
    LaRue County finished the regular season averaging one error every 2 1/3 innings, which allowed teams to score an average of 2.89 unearned runs a game.

  • Hawks claim victory over Hart...

    The LaRue County Hawks Baseball Team opened District play Monday, May 23 with a rousing 14-2, five inning victory over the Hart County Raiders.  Slade Owens pitched five innings of one hit ball, giving up two runs but only one earned run.

  • SOFTBALL: Lady Hawks defeat E...

    If Friday really was their last night playing in a LaRue County uniform, twins Lyndsay and Valerie Whitlock went out in style.

    The seniors, both in the starting batting order for the first time in eight games, reached base seven times in a combined eight plate appearance and each scored three times as the Lady Hawks ended the regular season with a 9-3 win against the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

  • Tennis teams battle it out in...

    The first day of the 5th Region tennis tournament brought local teams some wins and some losses, but more importantly, uninterrupted play despite rain showers earlier Friday.
    First-round play in the girls’ draws from the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College courts saw LaRue County advance three of four entrants into Monday’s second round, including both doubles squads.
    No. 7 seed Paige Nalley of LaRue County upset Hannah Rogers, Bethlehem Banshee’s No. 2 singles player, 6-2, 6-0.
