  • Soccer: Meet your Lady Hawks

    If you attend a LaRue County High School girls’ soccer game, you can feel the positive atmosphere that has engulfed these young Lady Hawks.

    The team is loaded with freshmen – eight have started at least one game this season, if not every game. Infuse that with senior leadership by Shelby Mack and Justine Scroggins and senior work ethics by Hannah Partridge and Britney Mack. Then, there is the enthusiasm and spirit oozing out of junior soccer newbie Misty England. Her heart and love for the game is most impressive.

  • Lady Hawks win Slam Jam...

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks won their own tournament over the weekend, going 6-0 and improving their record to 20-3. The Ladies defeated Taylor County, Beth Haven, Washington County, Campbellsville and Marion County.

    Taylor toppled

    LaRue dealt Taylor County a sound defeat 25-19 and 25-17. Beth Haven had a 24-20 lead on the Lady Hawks in their match-up, but the Lady Hawks pulled out a 26-24 victory. The Lady Hawks won their second game against Beth Haven 25-21. 

  • Reed tops for LaRue at All-...

    In the boys’ division, LaRue freshman Adam Sandidge took fourth with a time of 10:11.12.

  • Meredith, LaFollette win big at...

    Two Hodgenville men won their racing events Saturday at the 10th annual Bluegrass Classic at Bluegrass Speedway in Bardstown.

    Shane Lafollette was tops in UMP Street Stocks and Billy Meredith won UMP Sportsman.

    LaFollette took the lead mid-point of the 12-lap UMP Street Stock main event and held off the charges of Scott Beeler to capture the feature event win in his #63 Ford Thunderbird.

  • Mather leaves legacy of medals,...

    Donald Mather, 81, one of LaRue County’s most successful athletes, didn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.”

    Despite recent setbacks with his health, he continued to remain as active as possible.

    One of his neighbors, Robin Lee, said he loved to mow his own yard. It was an ongoing joke between the two of them – she would look out her door to check on him as he made rounds on the lawnmower and he’d wave his hand, signaling he was “OK.”

  • Lady Hawks defeat Green County

    The LaRue County Lady Hawks volleyball team played two matches last week, losing to Central Hardin and then defeating long-time rival Green County, improving their record to 10-3.

    Central sinks LaRue

    The Lady Hawks lost to a very tough Central Hardin Lady Bruins team that has suffered one loss all season – to Lafayette High School. After losing the first set 25-14, the Lady Hawks fought back in the second set losing 25-22.

  • Young cross country team sets...

    Josh Henderson and his LaRue County High School cross country runners have set some lofty goals for this year, but with an experienced girls’ squad returning and a boys’ team whose main strengths are competitiveness and hard work, they just might meet their aspirations.

    “We want to go to state as teams, be more competitive, and make reasonable individual goals,” said Henderson, who has coached the team for three of the four years he has been teaching at the high school.

  • Golfers eye regional championship

    The 27 boy golfers that came out to play this season are the largest number that Coach Rip Collins can recall in his four years mentoring the LaRue County High School Hawks or even when he was at Caverna for four years prior to that.

    “We’re young, but there’s a lot of talent here and if these boys will stick together, I think we’ll even have a shot at a regional championship down the road,” he said. “It’s not even out of the realm to get to state.”
