    Heading into the middle school state tournament, not many people were talking about the LaRue County team. After the tournament, many were talking about how much the team had improved over the year as the Mat Hawks left with the third place trophy.

    “We weren't picked to win state,” said Head Coach Dan Heady. “But we also weren't expected to bring home third place either. This group of kids gave us everything they had and then exceeded all expectations.”

  • CHEERLEADING: Sydney Dobson...

    They just don’t build a pyramid like they used to.

    Only a few years ago, cheerleaders were selected more for looks and popularity than for their athleticism. They stood on the sidelines, shaking pom-poms and yelling for their team to score more points. Stunts were tame in comparison to the edgy routines squads perform these days. Cheerleaders are required to possess the strength, poise and coordination needed to do a series of back handsprings or toss a teammate above their heads – and catch them. And they have to look good doing it.
