  • BASKETBALL: Hawks hold off Hart

    Coach Paul Childress isn’t going to stand for any more near-epic collapses.

    He’s making sure the LaRue County Hawks understand that, too.

    LaRue County hung on for a 61-57 victory Friday at 18th District rival Hart County, not making a field goal for the final 6:36 and nearly letting a 21-point lead slip away.

    Childress was so frustrated with the Hawks’ fourth quarter performance that he spent 30 minutes talking to them in the locker room and made all players ride the bus home afterward.

  • Lady Hawks outheart Hart

    Ivy Brown was on a mission Friday night and the LaRue County junior forward sent the Hart County Lady Raiders a message.
    She’s not letting them get in the way of the Lady Hawks’ 18th District title quest this season.
    Brown scored 17 of her game-high 26 points in the first quarter as visiting LaRue County routed the Lady Raiders, 74-39.
    Hart County ended the Lady Hawks’ 2011-12 season, knocking them out in the district tournament semifinals. Brown got some revenge Friday – and hopes for more again down the road.
