  • Hawks lose to Spencer by 1

    LaRue County coach Rodney Armes deemed it probably the most embarrassing loss of his 16-year career.
    The Hawks’ special teams’ mental and coaching mistakes cost them and left the team reeling Friday night.
    Host Spencer County scored two touchdowns off LaRue County special teams’ mistakes and stopped senior halfback Drew Newberry’s conversion run attempt with 3:58 left to hang on for a 21-20 victory.

  • Golf team takes District Cup

    LaRue County High School’s varsity golf team laid claim to the 18th District Cup title last month, giving the school bragging rights over district rivals Hart, Caverna and Green County High Schools.
    First year Hawks head coach Justin Craft said the crown, LaRue’s first since Cup match-play competition began four years ago, was a team accomplishment that was good for the kids.
    “We’re a young team, and it’s good to see these kids win trophies,” said Craft, an LCHS alumnus in his second year of teaching at LCHS.

  • Extension Service sponsors...

    The LaRue County Extension Service is sponsoring the “Second Sunday Challenge” to encourage LaRue Countians to get moving and stay moving on a path to a healthier life.
    The challenge, which was started three years ago, is a statewide campaign to “promote people to get physically active in the state,” said County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences, Theresa Howard.
    Experts recommend that adults get at least 30 minutes of physical activity several times a week and that children engage in 60 minutes of physical activity daily.

  • SOCCER: Hawks lose heartbreaker...

    If you were not in attendance to watch the LaRue County High School boys soccer game on Tuesday, Aug. 23, you missed one heck of a match. Ask the players and show your support and appreciation for representing your school and community in such a strong and positive manner.
    There is a new ruling this year by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association that district games requiring seeding for post-season play cannot end in a draw. There must be a winner.

  • FOOTBALL: Hawks defeat Rockets...

    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County Hawks are looking for a No. 3 option on offense. However, No. 45 is turning out to be a No. 1 type of playmaker on the other side of the ball.
    The Hawks’ dynamic senior backfield duo of Drew Newberry and Cody Thompson shined again at home Friday night, but it was 5-foot-8, 145-pound senior linebacker Taylor Albert who sparked LaRue County to a 27-24 win over the Shelby County Rockets with a fumble recovery that set up the winning touchdown and two sacks – including one to end the game.
