  • SOCCER: Hawks win season opener

     The first week of soccer matches saw good fortune for the Hawks of LaRue County High School. 

    The Hawks soccer team opened the 18th district season play Aug. 13 with an impressive 8-2 victory over the visiting Campbellsville Eagles. On the attack, seniors Alex Cook, Rico Collado and Marshall Metcalf continued their assault on the record books.

    Collado gathered his troops and fed a diagonal-running Metcalf with a pinpoint pass. At 5:32 p.m., Metcalf's score was perhaps the first score in the state.

  • Deer season begins Sept. 1

     When Kentucky’s 2012-13 deer season opens with the beginning of archery hunting Saturday, Sept. 1, there will be plenty of reasons for hunters to be optimistic.

    Last deer season was arguably the state’s best ever. A record 68 bucks taken in Kentucky qualified for entry into the Boone & Crockett record books, a record for the state.

  • Price steps out of baseball

    Until recently the sight of Chris Price working after hours at the baseball field was as common as a LaRue County Hawks 18th District Championship.

    Winning district has become expected in LaRue County baseball over the past decade and so has Price.

    The Hawks have captured 11 consecutive district titles.

  • Concussions in sports: LaRue...

     The most commonly talked-about danger in playing sports is the risk of concussions, but the LaRue County school system is making efforts to alleviate that concern in its athletics program.

  • Lady Hawks plan for season...

     It’s been a long and challenging road for the LaRue County High School volleyball team over the past year, but Coach Ben Schell and his 2012 team are ready to get back to prominence, and fast.

    After a 12-21 season last year, the volleyball program is ready to get back to those 26-11-type seasons the girls were having in previous years. The goal, according to Schell, is to win the district championship – something the volleyball team has never done at LaRue County High School.
