    Chili supper and cornhole tournament fundraiser

  • Lady Hawks fall to E’town

    LaRue County’s Lady Hawks had a rough first quarter Jan. 23 as they played the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers at Charlie Rawlings Memorial Stadium.
    They gave up seven turnovers and misfired on their first 12 shots from the field.
    “That’s what they do on their home floor,” LaRue’s Coach Travis Wootton said. “I think it was nerves and figuring things out. They’re one of the best defensive teams in the state. You have to be aggressive against them and I thought they were more aggressive than us in the first quarter.”
