  • FOOTBALL: Hawks defeat Rockets...

    Two weeks into the season, the LaRue County Hawks are looking for a No. 3 option on offense. However, No. 45 is turning out to be a No. 1 type of playmaker on the other side of the ball.
    The Hawks’ dynamic senior backfield duo of Drew Newberry and Cody Thompson shined again at home Friday night, but it was 5-foot-8, 145-pound senior linebacker Taylor Albert who sparked LaRue County to a 27-24 win over the Shelby County Rockets with a fumble recovery that set up the winning touchdown and two sacks – including one to end the game.

  • Hawks defeat Louisville Southern

    Usually hard work and determination pays big dividends for any struggling team. For the LaRue County High School boys soccer team, that was not the case.  
    Five weeks of practice in brutal summer heat gave these young Hawks confidence and a strong, competitive spirit.
    During the first game against North Bullitt, aggressive play and youthful mistakes resulted in a 4-0 loss. Take away two free kicks and a penalty kick and the result is a hard-fought contest between two equal combatants.
