  • SOFTBALL: Ladies hope for...

    Three errors over the first eight innings didn’t hurt but two errors in the top of the ninth doomed the host Lady Hawks against the Lady Knights of Marion County. LaRue fell 2-0 in the April 3 game.
    LaRue County wasted an 11-strikeout night by sophomore Brigitte Skaggs, who allowed six hits, two walks and hit one batter in 8 2/3 innings.

  • Paden named Wrestler of the Year

    As a kid, Nick Paden set the goal of wrestling under the lights in the state tournament. He had grown up watching former LaRue County standouts like Todd Allen, Scott and Andrew Cooper, Jason Detre, Ozzy Parker and Darwin Perez getting that chance and wanted to experience it for himself.

    Though the senior 120-pounder came up short in his quest to add his name to the list of LaRue County state champions, Paden was able to cross an achievement off his list.

    Brigitte Skaggs hit her spots Tuesday night at Elizabethtown. Courtney Johnson just hit the ball.
    Together, the LaRue County sophomores helped the surging Lady Hawks back to the .500 mark with a 5-2 win over the host Lady Panthers.
    LaRue County (5-5), which has won 4-of-5, matched its second-best start through 10 games in the last eight seasons. But that didn’t matter much last season as the Lady Hawks started off 3-7 before rallying to earn a berth in the 5th Region Tournament title game.
