  • TENNIS: Michelle McKamey wins...

      Michelle McKamey, eighth grade student at Lone Oak Middle School in Paducah and a member of the State Champion Lone Oak High School varsity tennis team, won the girls 14s division at the prestigious Fall Southern Closed Tennis Tournament in Louisville.

    The tournament was held over the Thanksgiving holidays. The tourney consisted of the top 64 girls representing the nine states that make up the southern section of the U.S.

  • WRESTLING: Mat Hawks' goal...

     Head coach Gary Canter started the wrestling program at LaRue County High School in 1990.

    At that time, the form of wrestling most people in LaRue County knew was the smackdowns – professionals on television.

    “The biggest challenge I had the first year,” Canter once said, “was to convince the wrestlers that there were not any ropes or ring involved in real wrestling.”

  • BASKETBALL: Lady Hawks demolish...

     Junior guard/forward Ivy Brown neared a rare quadruple-double as the LaRue County Lady Hawks routed first-year program Thomas Nelson, 71-36 in both teams’ season openers Nov. 27.

    It was the first-ever game for the Lady Generals.

    The Generals’ home opener against one of the 5th Region’s top teams was a rough one, as the Hawks jumped out to a 30-7 lead after one quarter and cruised from there. LaRue County ran the lead to 51-15 at the half.

  • Lyndsay Whitlock returns to...

     Lyndsay Whitlock, a 2011 graduate of LaRue County High School and former Lady Hawk, returns this fall to the court. The sophomore guard is a member of the women’s basketball team at Transylvania University.

    Greg Todd is in his seventh year as head coach of the Pioneers.

    Last season, she played in 14 games with a field goal percentage of .333 and free throw percentage of .750.

  • BASKETBALL: Hawks eye fifth...

     LaRue County High School’s boys varsity basketball team has captured the 18th District crown four years running, and with a veteran squad returning this season, the Hawks are a credible contender for a fifth title.

    “We have nine to 10 kids that could contribute,” said Paul Childress who is entering his eighth season as the Hawks’ head coach. “Our point guard position is really strong; potentially we could have a good shooting team from the perimeter and we have decent size, so we should rebound the basketball.”
