    The LaRue County High School Hawks won their opening game Saturday. They defeated the Australian Junior National Team 74-53 in the annual Corky Cox Classic.
    Senior Kyle Sheeran had a game-high 25 points, five rebounds and four steals. He was named Most Valuable Player for the game.
    “Kyle started off well for us, being aggressive to the basket and getting to the line as well as knocking down some threes,” said Coach Paul Childress.
    Childress said he was a “little nervous about how our guys would come out and play the first game.”

    Ready or not, another high school wrestling season is upon us.

    The season officially began Saturday, but most teams don’t usually get started until the week after Thanksgiving break.

    Here’s a brief look at some of the changes and story lines shaping up for this season.

    The Mat Hawks open the season Saturday at the Oldham County Super Duals. With high expectations and the focus of this team squarely on Feb. 17, the Hawks are ready to start their march towards Lexington.
    “We have a long season to go,” said long-time head coach Gary Canter. “Much can happen between now and February, but I do know that these guys are ready to wrestle someone else other than their team mates.”

  • Armes reflects on football...

    After 16 years of what he and his former players have described as “a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (both of sadness and joy), Rodney Armes, head coach of LaRue County High School’s Hawks’ varsity football team, has hung up his coach’s whistle.
     “I felt it was time for some new blood,” Armes, who retired from coaching at the end of the 2011 season, said. “I still have a passion for the game, but it’s time for a younger person with fresh ideas, plus I wanted to go out on my own terms.”
