  • BASEBALL: Hawks pound Caverna

     The LaRue County Hawks got off to a slow start, but once they warmed up, the Caverna Colonels couldn’t stop them.

    The Hawks collected 19 hits, including six for extra bases, on their way to a 20-1 pounding of the visiting Colonels on March 25 in an 18th District game.

    Caverna took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first before LaRue County tied it in the bottom half of the inning. The Hawks erupted for eight runs in the second and 11 more in the third.

  • Steve Cox to manage golf course

     LaRue County Golf Course’s new manager and head pro, Steve Cox, wants to increase membership and visitors while, in his words, making the 18-hole course as “good as it can be.”

    A lifelong resident of Hodgenville, Cox has played the game since he was a young kid putting golf balls into holes formed from empty tin cans. During the 57-year-old golfer’s career, he has won 23 amateur and 54 pro tournaments and is the current Senior Kentucky PGA player of the year.

     The visiting Lady Hawks jumped out to a 1-0 lead on senior Peyton Gardner’s solo home run in the top of the first, but the defending state champion Lady Gators of Greenwood scored twice in the bottom of the inning and held on for their second straight win. The Lady Hawks fell 5-2.

    “It was a good game for us,” said LaRue County coach Aaron Howell. “We just made some mistakes, but it’s early in the season and we’ll learn from it.”

    Sophomores Delany Eastridge and Jill Hughes each singled for the Lady Hawks.
