  • Lady Hawks win first round of...

    The Lady Hawks jumped out to a 14-2 lead and held on for a 53-46 victory over the Washington County Commanderettes in the first round of the region tournament Tuesday night.

    "As I've stated several times, we're not always pretty to watch, but we find a way to win," LaRue County coach Travis Wootton said. "I don't know how well we were playing, but we got out to a lead and I think we relaxed a little bit. I think we got caught up in the moment. But this was good to get this under our belt."

  • Hawks win 18th District...

    Friday’s 18th District Championship was a rematch between the LaRue County Hawks and the Caverna Colonels in Hodgenville. 

    If basketball was anything like professional wrestling, this would be called a grudge match. The Hawks were looking to avenge a 64-49 drubbing by the Colonels on Jan. 18. The Colonels were well supported with purple all over the packed gym. 

  • Lady Hawks defeat Hart in...

     Senior twins Valerie and Lyndsay Whitlock – and the LaRue County Lady Hawks – finally have their 18th District Basketball Tournament title.

    After six years and in their final season, the sisters finally got to cut down the nets. 

    They were so happy, they draped them around their necks and wore them like large championship necklaces the whole night.

  • E'town in running for...

     Kentuckians love high school basketball and a group focused on honoring “the essence of the game” could make Elizabethtown the focal point of that affection.

  • Laura Kudrna selected as girls...

    Laura Kudrna, the new Lady Hawks’ Track Coach, believes that an athlete's biggest competitor is herself.

    Kudrna, a fifth grade teacher at Hodgenville Elementary School, brings a wide range of sports experience to the team. The North Hardin High School graduate played for the school’s soccer team and has competed in co-ed softball in Radcliff since age 16.

    She took three years off due to pregnancy and taking college classes.

  • DISTRICT TOURNAMENT: Hawks to...

    Kelton Ford isn’t a big social studies or history buff, but suffice to say LaRue County’s standout sophomore point guard liked learning from history.

    After struggling offensively in his Hawks’ two regular-season wins against Green County, Ford had no trouble getting in a rhythm against the third-seeded Dragons on Tuesday night in the 18th District Tournament semifinals. Ford hit his first five shots and scored his team’s first 12 points en route to career-high 32 points to lead the second-seeded Hawks to a 78-68 win.
