  • Lady Hawks show leadership, speed

    Though her girls’ cross country team is few in numbers, Coach Jackie Harley is hopeful determination, endurance and some runners with great speed will lead the LaRue County High School team to a successful season.

    Veterans returning for the Lady Hawks include juniors Kristina Durbin, Kaelyn Herrin and Amanda Brewer. Seventh grader Clair Keller is back after sitting out a season. The coach said she is close to running her average time from two years ago.  

  • Ford chooses Troy University

    Kelton Ford, former multi-sport standout at LaRue County High School, has signed on as a member of Troy University’s Trojan basketball team in the Sunbelt Conference.

    “I am extremely happy for Kelton,” said his high school coach Paul Childress.  “He has worked so hard to achieve his dream of playing Division One basketball.  He is at a great institution with Troy University and has a quality coach in Phil Cunningham.”

  • Underclassmen gain experience in...

    The LaRue County High School Hawks’ opening scrimmage “went well for the most part,” said head football coach Josh Jaggers.

    The Hawks played against Breckinridge County Friday with five sophomores and a freshman starting on defense, and five sophomores starting on offense.

    After senior Michael Neal injured his wrist, “we had 11 new starters on the field from last year … that’s right, 11 totally new faces,” said Jaggers.

  • Coach Bell changes formation,...

    Though losing 10 seniors who had been together from jayvee through varsity to graduation last year, new LaRue County High School’s boys’ head soccer coach Derek Bell feels optimistic looking at this season’s Hawks.

    “On the plus side the enthusiasm and drive by the team should make up for the continuity of the now departed seniors,” said Bell.

    With different people employing different skills sets, Bell has adjusted his on-field strategy.

  • Lady Hawks a favorite for Region

    With seven varsity players returning, LaRue County High School volleyball coach Ben Schell can all but dispense with teaching and explaining the basics of the game in favor of more in-depth work on winning.

    “Our biggest strength as a team at this point is our experience at the varsity level,” said the Lady Hawks’ coach. “We will have more competitive practices because several players will be competing for playing time.”
