  • Dawson heads to State

    LOUISVILLE — LaRue County freshman Cameron Dawson joined elite company Monday.

    Dawson shot a 3-over-par 75 at the Boys’ 5th Region Golf Tournament on Monday at South Park Country Club in Louisville to earn a spot in next week’s Leachman Buick GMC Cadillac/KHSAA State Golf Championships.

    Dawson became only the fourth LaRue County player to qualify for the state tournament since 1999. Kyle Meredith did it in 2010, Cory Cox in 2004 and Tyson Catlett in 2003. The state tournament will be held Oct. 8-9 at Bowling Green Country Club.

  • Seniors honored Wednesday

    The Hawks defeated Wayne County 4-0 Saturday in varsity soccer action.
    Coach Derek Bell said the entire team earned MVP honors.

    “Saturday was a chance for the Hawks to get it together and become the team they promise to be,” said Bell. “Without a home win or clean sheet this season, could they turn the corner? The answer was yes and how.”

    Within the first minute, junior Christian Hensley scored the opening goal. It was followed by a goal from junior Miguel Martinez.

  • Nice catch
  • Lady Hawks undefeated in 12 games

    The Lady Hawks defeated North Hardin 3-0 Friday.

    Senior midfielder Abby Modrowski scored twice for the visiting Lady Hawks.

    Junior midfielder Rachel Wolf also scored for LaRue County, which had won a school-record eight straight games before consecutive 1-1 ties with Meade County and Grayson County.

    Junior keeper Sierra Mullins made two saves to record her fourth shutout in six games and help LaRue County extend its school-record unbeaten streak to 11 games.

    The team played Grayson County to a 1-1 tie Tuesday.

  • Hawks downed by Taylor

    False starts and illegal procedure penalties marked the Hawks’ 13-6 loss against the Taylor County Cardinals.

    After retaining their four first-half fumbles, the Hawks fumbled the ball on each of their first three possessions of the second half, with two of the three coming within 30 yards of the end zone.
