  • Cheerleaders to compete in...

     The LaRue County High School Cheerleaders won the medium varsity division in Saturday’s Universal Cheerleading Association’s Northern Alabama Regional competition at Sparkman High School in Harvest, Ala.

    The win qualified them to compete in the National High School Cheerleading Championships in February 2013.

    It’s the second consecutive year the squad has earned the right to compete in the national competition. Last year, they placed second out of seven teams in the qualifier and eventually took 13th in the national championship.

    The Hawks (6-5) trailed 10-9 with less than 7 minutes remaining in the third quarter before outscoring the Redhounds 27-6 over the final 18:07. After outgaining LaRue County in offensive yards in the first half, 170-160, the Redhounds (5-6) managed just 109 yards on 24 plays.

     After he let a potential breakthrough win slip away last year, Adam Sandidge returned to the site of his demise and atoned for it by breaking away for a 13-second victory Saturday in the 59-runner Class 2-A, Region 2 cross country championship.

    The LaRue County junior covered the course at Ephram White Park in 16 minutes, 45.15 seconds to beat his previous season best by more than 10 seconds.

    Last year, Sandidge led the region meet for most of the race before fading down the stretch and finishing third.
