  • Cheerleaders qualify for...

    The LaRue County High School Cheerleaders found themselves in familiar territory Saturday as they made their annual trip to Harvest, Alabama (Sparkman High School) to compete in the UCA Northern Alabama Regional Qualifier. That familiarity proved to be beneficial as the competitive cheer squad earned their fourth straight National qualifier with a second-place finish.

  • Barons adjusting to new level

     Although he was a standout for LaRue County last year, Kody Key-Close looks back and realizes he was in slow motion compared to the level he’s playing on now.

    As 1-of-7 true freshmen on the 10-man roster for the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College Barons men’s club basketball team, the former Hawks forward got a rude awakening to the world of college basketball. As did most of his teammates, as only two had college basketball experience prior to the Barons’ season-opening 82-65 loss Oct. 23 to NAIA Georgetown College’s reserves.


    Cameron Dawson was named to the All-Region Golf Team. Only six players for Region 5 were selected. The postseason award was announced by the Kentucky Golf Coaches Association.

    The 1974 men’s cross country team were guests at the WKU football game against Conference USA rival UAB at Houchens Industries-L.T. Smith Stadium on Saturday.

  • Eagles wallop Hawks, 46-26

    The LaRue County Hawks got off to a slow start Friday, but Campbellsville junior Kendon Young had no trouble getting going on a frigid, snowy night.

    Young rushed for 252 yards and five touchdowns, including four in the first quarter, to help the Eagles to a 46-26 victory over LaRue County at Hawk Field.

    Young gained 222 yards in the first quarter and had scoring runs of 85, 6, 29 and 92 yards as Campbellsville built a 26-6 lead less than 11 minutes into the game.
